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!

Pros

Windows

Cons

Slow engine

25

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.

255

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

Peppy performance, great handling, comfortable ride, plenty of leg and head room for passengers that exceed 6 feet, and nimble turning radius.

Cons

Cheap interior plastic, seat upholstery lacks durability, and poorly designed arm rest for manual transmissions.

Despite Its Economy Car Shell, A Rally-tuned Spirit Remains. — I really don't like American cars because of the poor quality, especially economy cars, but this one seems to stand out. Powered by a stock 136hp Zetec DOHC, this little guy will flat out haul as its only 2550 pounds... managing 25-32 mpg. This hatch has remarkable handling with a sport tuned independent suspension. It's turning radius is great for inexperienced drivers, and has a great deal of interior room. The interior offers comfortable high bolstered seats, but the fabric lacks quality. Dash has neat futuristic look, but vents are already broken at 89k, along with the arm rest. Overall, good performance and handling, but Ford... think about quality, not quantity. Interior cheapness is very discouraging for future investment.

Pros

The gas mileage has to be the best thing about it.  Its 7 years old and still gets the same mileage as when it was brand new.

Cons

In 2003 I got in a bad accident and the front end had to be redone.  About a year later, the hood started to rust.  grr...

Gets To Point A To Point B With Good Gas Mileage. — Its been a good car. I think I would get another one if I was in the market, but it will have to wait until I drive this one into the ground.

Gas mileage. Good interior size for such a small car.

Cons

It's a ford, small engine problems come standard.

Great For The City Traffic And Good On Gas For Long Trips. — Excellent quality and very economic. Little things here and there in the engine malfuction every so often, but very easy to fix. Very basic interior styling, not too dull and not too shocking.
