Ford has done a nice job of building an ecomomical car with a lot of nice features. I am just as happy with it as the Corolla I owned before it. I have 36K miles on it and it's still as good as new. The service department has been excellent; (had one complaint - the window had a slight rattle). The service dept promptly addressed the issue, gave us a free rental and we have never had a problem since.
It's a Mach edition so I am fond of the HID headlights. Nice stereo.
Maybe less brake dust. Brakes have not been replaced yet with 36K city miles, so no problems with wear.
