Pros: "Dependable and economic"

Cons: "Difficult to get in and out of"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"This car has been a God Send. She has required only the natural maintenance needed, i.e. breaks, a/c flush and normal required service. She is just nearing the time when her transmission will need serviced. She is reliable and economic vehicle. My only real complaint is that is difficult to get in and out of as I am short and must pull the seat up to reach the peddles."

"I bought used (was a rental/yr old w/22,000) and With one major bobble (in 2008) regarding the transmission going (we DID use this car in very harsh conditions prior to this though)... this car has been the best for running around locally and long distance trips. It is getting better now than it used to (32+mpg), drives smooth in any conditon (mud, snow, ice, wet/dry)...comfortable for our family of 4 (and we're all very tall...so it somewhat 'short for us)... my youngest (who was born well after I bought it wants this car when she's driving in a year or two...and pretty sure 'ol White will STILL be going strong! :) The only other car I'd have to rate just as high/higher (wouldn't work for our 'family' though) would have been my previous Ford Tempo 5-spd... Ford puts out GREAT cars (and trucks) :)"
