ReviewI purchased my 2.0L Zetec with automatic transmission at 26,000 miles. Now at 154,000 miles, I have experienced one major problem: lesson learned - change the idler pulleys with the timing belt since the OEM bearings are failure-prone. Small oil leaks from the valve cover were resolved with a new gasket and grommet set. I have really enjoyed this car and have kept it up with an excellent preventative maintenance program. Being a mechanical engineer may have something to do with it, too.
Best FeaturesMy 4-cylinder A/T model gets outstanding mileage on the highway and the trunk size has usually been adequate for most trips.
Worst FeaturesI was told the OEM speakers are good for 30 watts per channel so I replaced the factory stereo with an aftermarket unit. The sound quality has been better than I expected.
