i test drove almost every "hot hatch"
avaliable at the time, and none could
compete with the overall package Ford
has put together, i have had this
vehicle for almost a year and have no
major complaints with anything. there
have been a few trips to the dealership
to work out PCM (computer) issues, but
these were offset by the driving
pleasure this vehicle serves up with
every trip!! if you are in the market,
i would definatly recomend snatching
one of these up before they are no
more. and spend the extra $$ and go
with the Euro appearance package, the
Recaro seats alone are worth the price!!
Sure Footed, excellent high end power
and braking. the european appearance
package (HID headlamps, Recaro sport
seats, 15 spoke gunmetal wheels, plus
every other option) adds a refined feel
to this vehicle and sets it apart from
the boy racer/huge spoiler tuner crowd.
could definatly use more power, up
high the 2.0 liter lets loose and
provides a nice kick in the pants, but
down low is lack luster. a
supercharger would have been an
excellent addition by SVT. but the
aftermarket companies have taken care
