Summary:

Always ready to work hard with no complaints

Faults:

The cup holder broke almost instantly. Drinks fall out easily, spilling on the floor.

Gear shift knob fell off. Appears to be cracked on the inside.

General Comments:

This vehicle is very reliable. No problems close to 100k miles.

Fuel comsumption for the diesel is minimal. 18 mpg city and 24 mpg highway.

I would like to see more gauges - engine oil temperature, boost pressure, and transmission temperature would be helpful.

The AM-FM cassette sounds shallow, lacks volume and bass. Sounds cheap when compared to Ford cars.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
