After driving a Ford SHO for 10 years,
this was about the only American car
with stick shift. It's a bit of a
disappointment--engine weak with poor
acceleration, stick is smooth,
interior appointments, even with
leather, not first class, but rattle-
free after 13,000 miles. For the
$26K, it's overpriced, and the
headroom is the pits. I'm only 5'7",
but can't wear a baseball cap without
dragging on the ceiling. Overall, an
average performer in a dog-eat-dog
world. I want American, but the
options for real quality in the mid-
20's is seriously lacking across all
No problems yet, not even back to the
dealer in 13000 mi. Fold down rear
seats a plus for large cargo.
Instrumentation very good. Stick
shifts great at all times. Quite good
sound system (6 speakers, 4-CD
Get a real engine--this is a dog.
Needs about 3 more inches of
headroom. Improve the quality of
interior components, cheap plastic
everywhere. Needs a bit more growl--
sounds much better without muffler.
