Great First Car — Great first car! Easy to drive and handles great! Good field of view due to many windows. Engine is preety good for such a light weight car. Quick and nipy! Back seat does not have much room and nothing special in the interior. Definitely not a car for tall people due to being so small!

Pros: Good sized engine for size of car!
Easy to get around in!
Visibility is great!

Cons: Extremely cramped in back seats!
Not a car for tall people!
Brakes could be better.

Decent Experience Marred By Bad Engine — My engine blew up, but for the most part it's not a terrible car.

Pros: Mazda built, really Ford only designed the body, so very few of the typical Ford complaints apply.

Cons: Standard handling and performance problems that are natural to front wheel drive, OBD-2 models have an insane ECU that severely limits almost any modification.

Assembled By Mazda, Only With A Ford Motor — Eh, its ok. It looks pretty good, but there is almost no leg room in the back for us tall people (i'm 6 foot 1) and you're in the "giving birth" position if you ride in the back.

Pros: Good V6 power

Cons: Ford quality :-(

Well Worth My Money — People said this car wouldn't last me 30,000 miles. Well I'm at 133,000 and LOVE this car! I bought it brand new and I've definitely gotten my money's worth over the last 11 years and it's still going :) I couldn't have gotten any luckier.

Pros: great on gas, no major issues

Cons: not fast enough for me anymore
