Excellent small all-around car. Long distance use at 30%, short distance at 70%,and good at both. Can easily be used for camping(van-ning) by 2 adults, preferably not over 6' tall. Especially good for long distance motel-ing use. Price is right & repairs can be handled by local shops very adequately. 25 mpg overall avg.
All-around visibility is the best of any vehicle with very good height. Interior ergonomics are excellent amd keeping smaller size in mind, are equal to those of the Grand Caravans. Shifting gears with the automatic xmsn is almost like using a 5 speed, perhaps better. MPG & engine right in the park.
1.Rear brake noise. 2.Bigger tires. 3.In/Out thermometer-compass-MPG overhead console. 4.Right rear sliding door. 5.Longer rear length. 6.DC'd in '07, Ford should have upgraded like Honda, Subaru, etc.
