Cant rate the reliability yet but every
other aspect; handling, function,
acceleration, looks, quality are superb.
In choosing the TS, I researched the
Protege wagon, focus wagon, vibe,
element & matrix. This is in the
uppermid price range, but is clearly on
top in features & function. The gas
mileage is good considering the power
and towing capacity. I liked the protege
wagon until I drove the TS. They are
not even in the same club. I like the
Element but there was not enough driver
leg room. The leg/head room in the TS
is great. Normally my hair brushes the
ceiling in smaller cars, but I have 2
inches above my head in the TS.
Overall, a very nice car.
Fantastic all wheel drive. Very sporty
feel SUPER FUN TO DRIVE! Real power
when you need it. 2000lb towing
capacity. Good gas mileage for
sporty/utility vehicle. Very
affordable. And did I mention how great
that boxer engine sounds?
A little firmer suspension like what is
in the RS sedan. Real cup holders in
normal places. Make the darn floor mats
