Overall a good buy, a nice balance of performance and economy for the dollar. The seats are miserably uncomfortable (way too soft, like sitting on a sponge)... I had to remove the 2002 seats and replace them with the seats from my old 1995 Escort...
Performance, economy, fun to drive, Hope the 2002 is as reliable as the 1995
Two five gallon buckets would be more comfortable to sit on than the POOR quality seats that Ford installs, stereo is of marginal quality
