General Comments:

Even at the basic model, it comes with plenty of extras which are not added in to other manufacturer's common models, such as the Tercel, Corolla, Sentra, Suzuki, etc. It's very low cost, $5000 (in Costa Rica) makes the car a good and valuable option to choose, it would take two or three times more money to buy a similar Nissan or Toyota car.

When a year goes by, definitely there is a big difference between an Espero and those, some noises here and there, not that good a body or paint, it all depends how the car is when it was bought.

Acceleration is nice, quite a high fuel cost...

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
