After owning a Nissan Sentra (a lemon) this car is a joy to own and drive. Responsive, reliable, and all around, a great car. Tons of storage, lots of get-up-and-go, and a good price all led me to buy the ZX3. I never though I would own a domestic nameplate (I'd always owned Mitsubishi, Honda, or Nissan) but his Ford has changed my way I think about Ford Motor Company.
Roomy interior, lots of aftermarket go-fast parts, excellent handling
More power (SVT adressed that) less recalls (though I've only had one – many friends have had up to 7!!!).
