1995 Ford Aspire 2 Door Base Model 1.3 from North America
Great car for poor students!
The passenger side brake light has a wiring defect of some sort. It likes to work about half the time.
Discovered that the CV joints were cracked at about 106,000 miles.
The air pump went at about 113,000. Since the repair would have cost $800+, I've decided to go without the AC (and this is Arizona... in the summer.)
The water pump needed to be replaced at 113,000.
Timing belt had to be replaced with the water pump.
This is a great car for a college student. Yes, of course you will be ridiculed by your peers ("you can't drive that golf cart on the road!", "I see half your car, where's the rest?") but she is a sturdy little ride. Really.
She can cruise the freeways with the best of them; however, it takes a little longer than most to get up to speed.
Great for parallel parking! No effort required - just pull in!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
