A good car... for the price.
By J Bourdeaux on
Vehicle1995 Ford Aspire 2dr Hatchback
ReviewIt has been a fine car, great on gas
mileage, even now at 121K, I still
average 36 MPG. But with that great
MPG, power is sacrificed, which is to
be expected. Consumer Reports
correctly stated that the Aspire is
painfully underpowered. Although I can
zip in and out of traffic, I can't
accelerate up steep hills. It has been
relatively maintenance free. In 8
years, I've replaced the tires two or
three times, struts twice (I guess I
hauled too much with all the room in
the back), brakes once, exhaust,
headlights, rotor, cap, and timing
belt. The road noise is somewhat
pronounced. Overall, it's been
reliable, a fine investment, and has
served me very well.
Best FeaturesGreat gas mileage, spacious interior, ability to haul large objects, reliability,
Worst FeaturesMore powerful (without sacrificing fuel efficiency), better head lights (they didn't light up the road well & became cloudy over time), less road noise, trunk release from front seat, better exhaust system (the clamps on the protection panels rusted off and rattled -very annoying).
