This car wasn't even what my wife and I were originally looking for. However when we saw the gas mileage, exterior style, and heard about the safety features we decided to buy it. I was hesitant about buying a Ford, however we have put 28000 miles on it in one year and drove from CA to TX. The car is still doing good. It's got a few down sides but over all it's a 9 out of 10.
GAS MILEAGE IS AWESOME. The steering and safety are also great benefits of the car and it definitely has a great stock stereo system. It also has a lot of room for such a small looking car.
Some parts are starting to "rattle" a little bit (the sunglass holder and the center arm rest lid). As said earlier it's not the most comfortable on long trips. The brakes squeak a little bit and I need to get the ABS checked because the front left tire locked up on the road after it rained.
