I Will Never Reccomend A Current North American Vehical — 4 Cylider automatic. Disc brakes on front and drums on rear. Descent trunk space but spare tire hard to get out. All in all I don't know what to say but I guess it is an okay car fo what it is.

Pros: One of the best engines they have made for fuel economy

Cons: FORD

Fun To Drive!! — This car has afew extras being the street edition and is much tighter on the road due to the european tuned suspension and the bigger 16 inch wheels. I find all the controls easy to reach and for signalling and wipers you don't even have to take your hands off the wheel. A 6 cd in dash player is a plus as well. Good on gas and fairly peppy compared to some cars in its class... this car has been a trouble free and fun car to drive so far!

So-s0 — Brought a 2001 SE as a second car. Runs great, however, the previous owner kinda trash the car. Almost all the window regulators had to be replace ( let kids play with the buttons and focus can't handle that) Had two different type of plugs in it (put correct and new ones in). Need to service the tranny, Can't find a Filter or pan gasket for it. (fluid is brown, needs to be done before I pay for a transmission) Elertic mirrors are loose from their mountings, it appears this is kinda of a deflect. And various "other" probelms. Car has 86,000 on it now, and I get 24 MPG with air on and 27 w/o air on. Of course it is a use car and thats what you get, other then that as far as a second car..great.

Little Car With Lots Of Room. — Only car I have ever owned that someone I never knew walked up and open the door to it and scared my poor mom and said I have to get one of these. It turns good and handles like it is on rails. Plenty of pep from the engine. And it fits a big guy like me who like not to have the steering wheel under his chin. Just wish they would bring the English version here for it looks hot.

Cool, Dependable , Fast Enough — As a Ford fan I like this one a lot, got it for a great price from friend, plenty of cargo room when seats are folded down, easy over 30MPG when doing highway speeds, but goes to mid 20's when running around town. I should be driving this one for quite awhile, its definitely not for sale, I like it too much.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: all dark blue paint, tinted windows, alloy wheels, everything works, including AC

Cons: fuel pressure regulator went out, Ford has none in stock, get used one from recycle yard. Plastic window guide rail broke, another cheap fix from junkyard if you have mechanical talent

Its A Ford — It has an okay aftermarket, but over all I hate the way it looks. Parts are twice as expensive then Civic parts. The only thing I like about it is, it handles good on curvy roads. But over all its not that great.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It does good in the twisty's

Cons: Not fast enough

Popular Car And Has Great Longevity. — My wife and I drive this car to do our errands. Good gas mileage in town. Decent ride and adequate room for us and our things. This is a relatively low mileage car. Handles well. Good car to hand down to a grandchild.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Economy.

Cons: None.

She's Fast, Economical, Reliable, Good Looking, Agile, Has Nice Curves And Sometimes Moody. — I would have to say that I'm pretty happy with this little car. It gets about 30 MPG sometimes a little more, sometimes less. It depends on my driving style that week. She's become my daily driver. I still have my Ranger too, but the focus is a lot better on gas.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love the sound of the stock speakers, and the fact I can rely on this little car to get me where I'm going.

Cons: I had a few annoying sounds. One is a clunk that I think is a strut mount. I have had some problems with idling too low and satlling, but that was an easy fix. It's good to use a gas additive once in a while. I sometimes have a leak when I'm parked a certain way, especially on grass. The passenger floor sometimes gets soaked. I cant find any leak.
