Quality of materials (breaking things in interior etc.), very high costs of inevitable repairs.

Great Car For Driving, Not As Much For Owning — Surprisingly great performance and pleasure of driving; it's a perfect handling car and provides lots of power, although costs of maintenance (Diesel engine equipment) are very high and unevitable. It has a fantastic New Edge design, however underneath (besides engine and suspension) it's quite similar to his older brothers - Escort or Mondeo/Contour.

Cons

No reason, just not really fun car.

Has Got Some Nice Rims To Freshen It Up And A Nice Cd-player With Ipod Connection — Quite the normal car for everyone Performance 100hp 0-60mph 11 sec Not much fun factor, but is reliable and is decent priced for my economy. Uses 0.5L pr 10km I use it to drive my kid and some long tours to Sandefjord at my parents. It's not a showoff car, but can be cool.

Cons

no power

Cheap And Slow — Nice cheap car for the way to work, needed nearly any repairs in 2,5 years. But 1.8l and 115hp were not very impressive. Sold it as fast as i could when i had spend the money for the Volvo S60 T5 ;P

Awesome — I Love It. The 1.8 Engine pulls real well. Fun to drive. Only problem when the brakes get old they make a fun sound due to copper rubbing on metal. Great car for family or just a cheap fun factor.
