ReviewWe've had our Chestnut 5 spd ES for 1.5 years and put on 45,000 miles. (We have a 93 & a 97 in the family as well.) I thought it would get better mileage than the auto but apparently the final gear ratio on the Automatic OD must be higher, (about 3700 rpm at 75 mph; which it will do all day w/o complaint). No lack of punch off the line however and the tires show it. Feels heavier yet less solid in the curves than my 84 Saab 900 (which got 30.5 mpg) but is so much better
Best FeaturesThe color & the price for the value.
Worst FeaturesIt is best as a commuter. Long trips were less tiring albeit more stressful, in the unreliable Aerostar. Rear mirrors do not operate smoothly. Better mile
