    Cute First Car, Don't Expect To Run Long. — Lets put it like this, 3 alternators and 2 batteries in one year...plus a new heater hose, brakes, and part of the transmission. oh, and the engine light is on again. perfectly made car. to say the least....SUCKS. but ill admit, i like how it handles, and it came with a pretty good sound system.

    One Of My Top Cars — Loved that car. Handled like a race car. Took corners amazingly well. The look was awesome as well. The comfort level was pretty nice for a compact car. Was the first near new car i owned in 2004 and i would suggest it to anyone. And it was a manuel 5 speed and not an automatic.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Only a 4 cylinder

    It's Not A Bad Motor — Ghia Saloon TDCI. Just got back from cruising around France in it. Does about 54 mpg and is happy at 80 mph, sometimes a bit heavy going when fully laden and the diesel engine can be a bit rattly first thing in the mornings. Handles nicely, the turbo gives a nice kick and the boot space means it takes a much bigger load than the standard hatchback (and the saloons are less common on the roads).

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Reasonably reliable, great economy, decent handling & performance and good load space

    Cons: It's not as cool as a Jag X Type

    Its Ok For Now — Its got a window leak. No CD player just tape and radio. No Power windows, No power lock. 145,000 Miles. I want it a street look to it. Like loud sound and a nice body to it. sexy interior would be nice.

    Pros: it runs

    Cons: Its not easy.

    Good Tradeoff, Fun To Drive, Not To Expnsive To Keep On The Road, Good Looks — Performance - adequate acceleration and braking, excellent handling Build Quality - not on par with VW, not as reliable as Japanese makes. Electrics a bit iffy (grounds) Appearance - still one of the most striking designs out there, much better looking inside and out than the new focus. TCO - Not bad considering the size of the car and engine Fun factor - hell yes, could be faster, better brakes ( I guess i'll have the ST170 / SVT then!)

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: World class handling vs ride

    Cons: If you are a boy racer - it's not a hot hatch

    Average — Unreliable and boring really. Has put me off Fords for good. Had problems with the engine management system and also the clutch, also water leaked into the passenger side and the A/C has gone wrong twice. Pretty quick though which is one of the defining features as I have the TDCi and i've had 135mph out of it!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Pretty Quick

    Cons: Unreliable

    Great For Anyone With A A Grand Or 2 To Spend On A Cheap Reliablle Run About — Its a bit slow on acceleration but top speed is not bad, braking is pretty good, and handling is 100% Build quality is great, Cheao to Repair, Fun to drive but would recomend maybe the ST170 or RS. Plus the look pretty good when its all painted up =)

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Cheap to buy, cheap to run.. overall great car

    Cons: .``

    A Drivers Car. — A solid chassis with a decent drive train and brilliant suspension. Stock performance is adequate, but really shines with help from the diverse aftermarket. Easy to maintain, but build quality is of lower quality compare to its European brother. Very fun car, very tossable in the corner, and you can find them cheap enough to not care. A bloody brilliant car, too bad Ford is too stupid to give this model and much needed updated (a true update, not a makeover).

    Pros: Blood brilliant chassis.

    Cons: Ford cheapen the American release.
