Peppy engine, great gas mileage

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Great gas mileage, ice cold A/C, low maintenance
Cons: Road noise

Gas mileage is 28 city and 32 hwy. Clutch is original with no indication of any problems. Steering is tight and car drives a straight line, no excessive tire wear. The car is a 4 speed, very peppy engine, fast! A/C still blows ice cold. The front ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Very reliable, fuel efficient, sufficiently powerful and nimble.
Cons: Non-critical interior parts tend to break or crack; kind of ugly.
The Bottom Line: If you want very reliable, economical transportation and aren't put off by the odd-looking exterior or cheap interior, it's your ride.

I've driven this car for around 13 years, since my parents bought it new in 1990. I bought it fr ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: sturdy and reliable; inexpensive to buy, to drive, and to maintain

Pros: VERY reliable!
Cons: New models haven't been produced in many years!

We bought our Fox when it was new, way back in 1990. For the past 10 years, it has been a real trooper! We've driven it across the united States twice, made a couple of trips to Key West, Florida in it, and gone from a childless couple out having fun to ... read more
