Not bad for a Ford

Review
Bought it at 87K because the salesperson told me it was "Sport Edition" and can't be mistaken with its handling and ride quality. Yes tight handling and way too firm suspension, steering feel is just about as good as a BMW 3 series, interior and trunk space are ample compared to its compact size, nice folded backseat but should offer rear headrest and more rear leg room, road noise can be annoying especially on midwest pavement and jaw-breaking ride which leads to tons of rattles and sqeaks, engine is smooth and strong at highway speeds. Haven't had major reliability issues except once water pump blew up at 96K and minor repairs - right rear window motor and trunk release cable went and now happy at 110K.
Favorite Features
All lighting package, leather-wrapped steering wheel, traction control, ABS, sunroof, tight suspension, faster than it looks, immaculate rust coat and paint job, V6 smoothness at highway speeds, reliability.
Suggested Improvements
Dumb and flimsy cup holder (even though didn't use it often), better interior panel assembly, cheap plastic materials,softer suspension, less rubbery shifter, better fuel economy, rough acceleration at low speed (1st to 3rd gear over 2500rpm), seems to lose grip at bumpy corners.
