Overall I am pleased with this car, but
I have had a couple of annoying bugs to
work out. It handles well, especially
in snow, is fun to drive, and the wagon
is especially versatile with lots of
space for cargo and people. I did have
the problem of water leaking in the
passenger side, and the floor mat
pulled out of the trim, but Ford took
care of it promptly. The doors
constantly locking is a bit annoying,
and the seats are somewhat
uncomfortable on a long drive for my
6'1" 190lb frame. (The padding digs
into the back of my legs.) The design
is well considered and stylish, but the
build quality is poor. Overall value
is still pretty good.
For a compact car, the wagon space is
HUGE. Handling and engine is good.
Very versatile and well designed car.
