I have the 2.0L Zetec/5spd manual, and
I must echo everyone else, it doesn't
impress you with power. Although I do
get 30mpg on the highway regularly
going 75mph. It's very spacious
inside, well thought out ergonomics,
superior driving dynamics, above
average stereo, quiet on the highway,
and plenty of power items. I don't
have much to complain about.
Tilt-telescoping steering wheel and
height adjustable driver's seat is
surprise & delight. It's very well
equipped at a low price.
Needs a powertrain that both pleases &
gets 30mpg. Soften the volume of
the "Snapple" cap turn signal
