Pros

endurance without any noticible problems

Cons

handling on wet street

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!

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.

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).

Pros

interior styling, handling, cargo space with seats folded, fuel economy (average 32MPG), durability, nice sporty steering wheel

Cons

the decorative center caps on the wheels don't seem to survive tire installations (cost less than $5 a piece

Great Fun Car With Good Fuel Economy — I had the S2 version of the ZX3 so it had European suspension. This was a great car with good handling, fun to drive, and a nice interior. It seems to be durable as my cousin now drives this car and it has about 150K miles with no issues despite being hit by a truck and swiped by a semi on seperate occaisons.
