Pros

endurance without any noticible problems

Cons

handling on wet street

35

Perfect Companion To Share Long Distances With. — Good performance - long distances without problems. Takes only about 8l/100km. Cheap second hand car. No repairs yet, except for the two flat tires in the first month. :-) good variability (stowable bakc seats) nice sound good acceleration (115hp) comfortable seats bad gear shifting (especially rear gear) All in all a affordable car that satisfies its driver a lot.

Pros

Saves me so much money on gas!

Cons

There's a little bit of a rattle when I slow down.

35

Nicest Car I've Owned So Far. That Rhymes! — This is a great little car! It accelerates smoothly, and relatively quickly for a 4 cylinder. It handles very well, and corners like a pro. It gets great gas mileage too, about 30 miles per gallon in town and 35 on the highway. All in all, it's a fun car to drive! Oh yeah, the stereo it came with kicks major a*s!

Pros

Windows

Cons

Slow engine

Ok.. — I like all the windows. I don't like that it is a 4 door. The trunk is large and the engine is slow. 20.3 seconds for 0-60. The cost wasn't too bad and it is fun to drive. Overall, it is a good college student car. It gets you from Point A to Point B

Pros

Agility, but that's about it, maybe just because it was a newer car I wasn't used to.

Cons

Problem after problem due to where things were. Just a more "economic" car by ford to fill it's eco-friendly quota after all the trucks it puts out.

35

Crap — Handles rather easy, ok power, but isn't built smartly, difficult to get to parts, prone to problems, ugly, not especially comfortable interior.

Pros

5-Speed Manual, 27mpg driving in traffic to work, good AC, good handling.

Cons

7 Friggin window regulators! One broken alternator, cheap wiring harnesses, that are prone to dry rot.

235

Hauls Alot Of Stuff And Gives Great Gas Milage — 5 Speed Manual the only way to go if you are going to drive a 4 banger. No real problems with the car (see cons).
