The vehicle has excellent steering while the suspension provides a good combination of ride and handling. The engine likes to rev, but provides good low end torque. The interior materials are higher quality with many details (5sp "metal" shifter knob, "metal" accents in doors, "metal" dash plate, etc) than I would expect for this price range. My car's build quality is great.
Ford saved money on the areas you don't see like the absence of inner wheel wells in the rear and a splash guard in the engine compartment.
I don't like the Dash Panel.
Excellent car for the money. Outstanding steering for any class.
More Engine Power. HUrry up with the SVT! How bout a Rally Sport with AWD version?
