Have never owned a vehicle that wore
down faster. Cheap build quality
compared to foreign cars, seats looked
worn after 6 mos, sheetmetal is flimsy
and dents extremely easily. At 48k,
had to replace cracked manifold, paint
is peeling just like on the old GM
cars, Ford just informs me it is out
of warranty, and has no remedy..
It is responsive for its size, and has
a good safety record.
Don't cut corners on build quality! It
is obvious that every time $20 could
be saved here and there - it was done.
End result is a short lived vehicle.
