This car was bought brand new to be
my "college car". Couldn't have asked
for anything better. Although, I think
a manual transmission is necessary. My
girlfriend had a '95 auto, and she sold
because her second tranny went out at
110,000. Her original tranny went out
at 60,000 miles, which I hear is common
with Fords. But with the manual, no
problems there. Mine now has 110,000
miles on it and has been fairly
reliable. No major problems, only
maintenance for normal wear and tear.
I would suggest this car to anyone who
needs to get from point A to point B at
a very affordable price.
Roomy, good looking Hatchback, very
affordable (brought it brand new in '92
for $11,000) fuel economy, heavy doors.
Reliable Automatic Transmissions!!!
Bad re-sale value. Better headlights.
