Review

Bought this as my very first car. My stepdad fixed it up for me and it runs like a charm! The inside is pretty comfy and it hasn't given me any problems yet. I definitely would purchase another ford in the future :)


Best Features

radio is a cool style for a 90's


Worst Features

better speakers! they stunk if turned up (will buy some in the future) and the car is very loud and a little shaky above 60 haha

Review

This car was purchased new and we now have 117k miles on it and have never done anything to it except the 100k mile tune up. It has been well worth the purchase price and if Ford still made them we would buy another one.


Best Features

With the 5 speed tranny we get 35mpg. Love the keyless entry, great design for the year.


Worst Features

Less hassle to replace the factory radio which is built in with the heater control panel.

Review

I've had this car for seven years and have only had to replace brakes and tires and a wiper blade now and then. It's a great car for girls because all of the fluid caps are have labels and the rear seats fold down so you can fit all of your shopping items in the car.


Best Features

Fold down rear seats, gas mileage, easy to drive.


Worst Features

More leg room in the rear seat and more head room.
