ReviewSo, my wife has never owned anything but a VW. When her '88 Fox GL wagon finally went over the hill, we bought this car, and we love it. The Trek edition is beautiful with the flat 5-spoke 14" rims and the rear deck lid spoiler. Keep wax on it and the Fiesta Red will shine forever. The 2.0L SOHC 8V engine is fantastic. Don't let the uninspiring 115hp fool you. It's the 122lb/ft of torque that makes this car fly. You want a 5-speed. Throw on some Koni adjustable shocks/struts and you've got a European sports sedan.
Best FeaturesOptional Clarion 6-disk CD changer. Cavernous trunk. Unless you lock the doors with the key from the outside with a passenger door open, throw your keys in the passenger door, and then close the door, you cannot lock yourself out.
Worst FeaturesBuy yourself an OBDII code reader for $67-140 and you'll save yourself hundreds in dealer diagnostics. The check engine light comes on for scheduled services you don't need. The code reader can turn the light off or tell you if you have a real problem.
