I think Ford got this car right. I find it quiet, responsive, and peppy (for what it is). The manual transmission is easy to shift and it holds speed well on downgrades. I get 37 mpg on the highway and around 28 mpg in town. I recommend this car! Get the SES and the fancy radio system.
Good gas mileage, the engine is quiet. Heater and A/C work well. Ride is smooth.
Interior trunk release would be nice. Also have more colors available for the SES.
