I traded in my manuel Protege for this so my wife could drive also and hated it from the start because it was boring and I didn't have trust in Ford cars. Now it's my work car and after driving it more I have learned to love it and trust it. It's had zero problems so it's my hero. Just wish it was a manual with a cd player and power windows, but its the base. Overall this is the best vehicle to have for a work car. I hope it stays this good for the next 50k since its got 50k on it now.
Fuel economy 32 mpg. Handling. Quicker than normal 4 cyl engine. Color blood red. Stability
None really. Just put cd players in every car! It's after 2000!
