I've had it almost six days and 600 miles.Very impressive little car. Price was cheap,but nothing else. Quiet, firm but not harsh ride. Handles very well. Engine is very smooth and quiet, likes to rev. Compared to my old Toyota Matrix, this is at least a class better in refinement and extras. The not so good, no center arm rest, not much in side storage. Back seat leg room is tight, but has good headroom and good comfort. Speedometer is like 4-5 mph off. Ford says, so what. Workmanship and A/C better than the Matrix. The bar has been raised in this class by a lot. Lots of little extras, like lighted power window switches and map lights in the back seat. Only the price is cheap.Solid.
Steering feel, manual shifter. Feel of switches. It is very solid car. Feels way more expensive than it is. Just fun to drive and quiet. Far superior to my Toyota Matrix except for rear leg room.
