"A very smooth and quiet ride. Good acceleration. Very comfortable. Handles very nicely. Rather tight fit for tall and/or heavy person. Not a lot of hip room or leg room; perfect for smaller person."

Pros: "comfortable, classy, eye turner"

Cons: "somewhat rough ride due to the stiff suspension"

"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."

"I bought my Jaguar new in 2002 and drove it for 12 years. Mechanically the only major problem I encountered was having to change the transaxle at 81,000 miles. This car was by far the best car I have ever driven in the snow. The quality of the car was as expected (I have owned Jaguars in the past and am aware of their improving quality since Ford purchased them) From the standpoint of comfort and amenities, this early 2000 car (Mid 30K) had a lot of little things that made it stand out. Besides being beautifully styled, it had automatic temperature control, single touch windows, rain sensing windshield wipers, xenon headlamps, great handling, a 5 speed transmission. Self dimming rear view mirror and all wheel drive. I am sorry to see this car get old and am not excited to be rid of it. I intend to buy Jaguars in the future."
