I have had this car for over a year and have had no problems. It is very fun to drive, and like most Ford's, it has a lot of power. Being a coupe there is still a lot of room for passengers and the trunk is huge. Small and easy to get in and out of parking spaces, especially good for college parking. Easy to control and steer. Great design inside and out. This model is much more appealing than the earlier and even later models. Overall a great buy and would not want anything else.
I love my Sync! It is a must, especially with the no cell phone laws. Artist/song shows on the console and Ipod plug is easy to use. Also reads the artist/song when playing. Leather wrapped steering wheel, rims, and silver siding.
Back speakers were optional. The doors swing out a little wide, so you have to watch out.
