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: 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.

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.

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

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: 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.

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.

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...

Pretty Good Car — Handles great, but I have had a few problems. It has a great interior and an awesome stereo system. There is plenty of space for such a small car.

Pros: Great handling, good engine, plenty of space, good stereo system, great AC

Cons: Coil springs break easily, dents easily, window problems, light problems

Its No Mustang, But At Least Im In The Ford Club Now Haha — Its great. It handles very nice, doesn't lean so I can go faster around corn...I mean its safer? Yeah.. Thats what I mean. Its got more power than Im used to, and now I actually feel like I can get out of the way if I needed to instead of putt-putt-putt hope I don't get hit

Pros: Mines a 5 speed manual tranny, A/C works amazingly, bigger than my last car but still little, BLUE!! has power, fun to drive, stereo works like its supposed to lol

Cons: Its not a mustang =[

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.

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

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

I Love This Car In So Many Ways But We Bought It Used And Have Put Quite A Bit Of Money In It — We had to replace the thermostat, have had it tuned numerous times and I have a vibration that 4 balances and rotations haven't fixed. I think the tires may be cupped.

Pros: Good acceleration, really roomy for a small car, looks great

Cons: The repairs
