"I bought this car from a friend of my sons it was her grandmothers car and she could no longer drive..they were the only owners so it was s 1 owner car...My son and his friend tuned it up and replaced a few things as it had been sitting for over 2 years..I paid $750 for it and here we are 4 years later and the car is going strong..very minor repairs the ac compressor, brakes..nothing major..gets great gas mileage I love this car as a matter of fact shes getting a tune up today!! now the only reason i put 9/10 for comfort and convenience is because the cup holders are horrible but it is a 93 and they have come a long way with it"

This car has been a great economy car!

"I received this car from my grandmother back in 2004 with 14,000 miles.. Now almost ten years later, it has 156,000 miles. In that time period it has been very reliable, and I have put very little money in to it besides normal maintenance; tires, brakes, oil changes, wires, exhaust once, etc. A few issues are starting to raise now but I would think that is expected with a 20 year old economy cat with over 150,000 miles. Engine still runs great."

"This car was wonderful for a poor single mom with a kid in far flung schools. I drove my kid and other people's kids day in and day out, by golly, and this car was reliable and capacious. It fit the kids and their gear and all the groceries, too. It deserved and earned the title of Mamamobile! And it was never a target for theives or vandals...always a plus point. I recommend this manufacturer and any similar vehicles to moms everywhere!"

"I have only had this car for about a month, bought it broke down because the previous owner did not replace the timing belt and it snapped. I fixed it and now i love it. Its nickname is the go cart, not much power, but gets you where you need to go. It also gets awsome gas milage."

"This is a great car. I bought it used (2 years old) before I moved out west for college. I drove it across the country half a dozen times and the length of the east coast a few times as well. This has been a wonderfully reliable and trustworthy car. With a 180k, I am thinking of selling it for the first time since I bought it, and honestly, I am skeptical that any new car will be as carefree and easy to take care of as my beloved 1994 Mercury Tracer wagon."
