"proven excellent in recovering from snow induced skids rear seat unsatisfactory for anyone except children and very short adults. Two mechanical problems; right oil seal leak and broken left strut spring."
Cons: "somewhat rough ride due to the stiff suspension"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Beautiful Car. Purchased used (one owner) in 2008. Almost didn't due to the reviews, THEN, found out Ford changed most of the assembly process after 2003 ending the "reliability problems". I have put 50,000 mi on this car and my only repair expenses have been a battery and brakes. This has proven to be one of the most fun vehicles I've owned and the most reliable besides, @70MPH on cruise control on the highway this little pup gets 31 MPG!!......Yeah.....really!! Only dislike is the somewhat rough ride of the "sport" pkg. It really is like a Sports Car."
"This car fit me perfectly. Love the design and dependability. Good quality car. Great gas mileage. I got as much as 30 mpg on my trip to AZ. I've had this car almost 10 years and I can't see me not getting another quality car."
