1996 Ford Aspire 1.3 from North America
Not one thing.
I bought this car used in 1998 I didn't want it, I went on the lot to get a Ford ZX2 but couldnt afford the insurance so I ended up with this Aspire instead. I have a basic car with air and cassette player. I have not done one thing to this car besides change the oil maybe twice a year, nothing has been replaced all the belts, brakes, spark plugs are still the ones that came with the car. This car has always started the first time I turn the key never once has it failed to do so. Aspires have no power they are weak and its hard to get in with fast traffic at highway speeds. The air is cold and the stereo sounds OK, at first I really disliked the car, but now I would not part with it considering it has never had one problem in all these years. The color is red and it's a bit faded now it needs to be waxed soon. I think this year I'm going to have everything done to the car that I should have been doing all this time like belts and things. Ford/Mazda/Kia did a fine job on this little car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
