Great Little Car!!!

by
Jul 31, 2009 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: It has plenty of power.
Cons: None really. I think it's size makes you a better driver, you pay attention more.
The Bottom Line: Great little car if you like driving. Not good for driving and eating though when you need both hands for driving.

I love this car. I've owned it for ten years. I originally bought it in 1999 at an auction for $450.00 it had 60,000 miles on it. The only thing wrong with it at the time was a brake hub was bad. The A/C worked great.I tinted the rear windows since I ... read more

Pros: Great gas mileage, great power for it's size, will last forever
Cons: hmmmm, can't think of any off hand
The Bottom Line: I would highly recommend this car for roadtripping.

I bought my Aspire new in 1995. I now have close to 120,000 miles and have never had a problem. I don't even get the oil changed when I should. I've changed brake pads once and replaced the spark plugs around 70,000 miles...and oh yeah, the battery is ... read more

A good little Commuter

Apr 16, 2003 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Gas mileage, cargo space, zippy around town
Cons: No Frills, Road NOISE!
The Bottom Line: It is a very good car for what it is designed for (around town, short trips, commuting) but lacks comfort for longer driving.

I purchased my 1995 Ford Aspire a little over one year ago, used, with about 57,000 miles. I have driven it about 7,000 miles since, and have kept careful checks on fuel consumption. This is a companion vehicle to the "Freightliner" diesel ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Great gas mileage, fits in small places

I bought my 1995 4-door hatchback Aspire used from my neighbor. It had 70,000 miles on it and I paid $2,000 for it. I just love this little car! My boyfriend is tall and was very surprised about how much leg room he has in it. I get excellent gas ... read more

The Bottom Line: I would recommend this car to anyone, its great on gas and has survived me, which dh says is a miracle.

We bought our 1995 Ford Aspire in 2000. It had only been used as a rental car so it was in great condition. It doesnt have much power going up hills unless you have a chance to get your speed up. I like it because its easy to drive, you ... read more

Pros: Great mileage, reliable.
Cons: No power, can't handle big hills with the A/C on.
The Bottom Line: Good, cheap transportation.

My wife and I bought a new Ford Aspire in 1995. We needed a new car, but had very little money, so the Aspire was just about our only choice. In the six years we have had it, we have had zero mechanical problems. The car now has 95,000 miles ... read more

Great little commuter car

by
Jul 5, 2001 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 20 Recommended: No 

Pros: Cute, great gas mileage, reliable
Cons: Small, no power, seats only good for short people, small tank
The Bottom Line: If you want to win the Indy 500 while leaning against heated 7 position programmable leather seats, this car is NOT for you. Otherwise, this car will do just fine.

Oh man, the Ford Aspire!!!! This was my first car and I actually kind of liked it. It has almost no power, so its a struggle to merge onto the freeway, (and up steep driveways too, as a matter of fact!) it has no tachometer, so you live in constant ... read more

My husband and I purchased our '95 Ford Aspire to replace his '87 Pontiac 6000. I drive a Ford Festiva, the predecessor to the Aspire, and I'm very pleased with it. My husband is 6' tall, and likes having a big car, so I had to talk him into test-driving ... read more

Pros: cost is low
Cons: needs some work

This was our first purchase on credit, I do like the car, but with a family of 5 we all can't ride in the car, nor can we go shopping with the car. I believe that a single or newlyweds it would be a good car and for people who are just starting out, the ... read more

Pros: Affordable, gas saver
Cons: Not very good in auto accidents, expensive repairs

A baby was on it's way and I had to have a car that I could afford. Not only could I afford to buy it but with the gas mileage and low insurance rates, this car was perfect for me. The Aspire only had 7 miles on it when I drove it off the lot and four ... read more

Pros: Gets you there

The aspire seemed a great buy at the time. The price was right and the gas mileage was an important factor. It seemed that it was going to serve our purpose well. The first thing that went wrong was the odometer started to fail after about ... read more
