Great little car. I drove the Mazda3 and Civic; this little car is right there with them if not better. You get a great car for the money. I am very impressed. Acceleration on the interstate is great and the handling is nimble but firm. Hard to imagine I'm not in an expensive sports car. SES has a great curbside appeal. Ford was definitely listening to consumers when they built this car. 33 mpg all around mileage is another plus.
17" wheels w/low profile tires,sound system, both 60/40 back seats fold down, Ambient lighting and the performance suspension.
Brake pedal to close to accelerator, no compartments in the trunk, high back end difficult backing, telescoping wheel, no intermediate tray in console, needs 4 wheel disk brakes and a 5 speed auto. transmission.
