Great sport economy


The only ONE thing that was even remotely wrong was a bug with the CEL (check engine light); it gave me a fuel code when there was no problems. Restarted it, and the car has been running great ever since.

Bolt pattern 108??? Why, why, why. Makes aftermarket rims very expensive.

General Comments:

Great looks.

Inexpensive to purchase and maintain.

Great aftermarket parts support.

Great gas mileage.

Good standard power.


I have had this car for a year, and have literally no problem with the vehicle, outside of regular servicing.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

There is no such vehicle as a "Ford Fusion ZX3", you mean "Ford Focus ZX3".
