Has never left me stranded
May 30, 2015
An incredible and reliable car. I've owned my Esteem wagon for over 13 yrs, and have NEVER had a mechanical breakdown, despite it now having 240k miles on it (unless you count the time I forgot to buy gas and ran out and once I needed a jump on an old battery when it was very cold). Maintenance has been very inexpensive, and much of it easy to do at home. Gets up to 40 mpg, even fully-loaded--and this car can hold a lot. Have been very happy with it, and wish they still made them.
