"PROS-Superb gas mileage. 38-40 in the summer, 32-36 in the winter.
CONS-no power steering. No parts easily available.Have to buy wheels that are not the recommended size, because the Aspire's recommended size are no longer available. Great Car, but only if you have a few Aspire's handy for parts and are either a Ford mechanic or have one that will help you on a barter system- because you will be putting that mechanic to work quite regularly.
Biggest frustration- could not discover what problem made the Check Engine Light stay on."
"I bought this car used and it's been reliable, economic, and a lot of fun to drive. I took it on a couple road trips and it did a great job although I think if I were going to spend a lot of time on the road I'd want better seats, but then, this is the base model with no extras."
"This car was the first car I drove and very fun because it was so small. It was easy to park anywhere I went and its a five seater so there was space in case I needed to drive anyone else. Realistically, however, this car is probably made at most for two people, it becomes inconvenient to drive when you have kids. THe good: its very cheap to maintain and very good on gas, 30 + MPG. Its awesome!"
Pros: "gas mileage, its compact, smooth ride on long trip"
