i can't complain about the performance.
for the money, there's not a better
sports sedan on the market. too bad it
was discontinued in 2000. i had the car
only three months before totalling it,
but it was definitely a blast to drive.
faster than every japanese import from
1999 except the nsx and integra R,
faster than the A4 turbo, faster than
the 325i, and faster than both the V6
mustang and camaro. and with a 5-spd,
leather, and power everything standard,
it was nicer inside than the entry level
lexus. certainly a car that ford needs
to bring back. in fact the only
complaint i have about the car is the
tires. you can't find anything in a 215.
