We have never had major problems with
this car except a transmission
replacement at 120,000 miles. Other
than that, only routine maintenance.
Very roomy on the inside. Overall, we
have been impressed with the
performance. It has a small engine, but
we knew that when we bought it. It has
been the only vehicle we have owned for
The roominess. My husband is 6'3" and
he has plenty of head and leg room.
This car started out well but has
ended up being a very expensive. Most
parts are not available locally and
everytime something needs to be fixed,
the parts must be ordered and are not
cheap. My brakes alone cost $800. The
clutch continually has problems. The
keys break often and no one carries
the template key anymore. Ford people
actually laugh when I pull up to the
dealership for anything. They cannot
believe that it is still running.
Zippy little car that can zip in out
and out of traffic. Can park it
anywhere since it is so small.
Ford does not need to have other
companies build cars for them and then
not want to help maintain them.
