I needed a daily driver to replace my previous 16 year old sedan without breaking the bank. My primary concerns are reliable and economical with a secondary for fun to drive. Hence, I found an anomaly, a manual transmission on the dealer lot took a little effort and Google to find. The 3cyl turbo is weak at low RPM's, but comes alive from 3000-6500 and can be quite fun. Pedal placement is atrocious for heal-toe shifting, but the after-market has a fix to realign the throttle pedal. Overall, the engine is raspy and fun at high rev's while economical at normal speeds. EcoBoost folks: You get Eco OR Boost... pick with your right foot! This engine isn't even broken in yet but has achieved amazing combined fuel mileage despite the occasional floggings.
