I love this car, because it looks sporty and gets great MPG too
I have just bought this car. The only thing wrong would be that the maroonish paint has severely dulled. I think that Ford had problems with this model and their clear coat.
There haven't been any other problems so far, because the previous owner has put a salvage engine in it. I think it was a Mazda MX-6 motor; only has something like 18000 miles on it. The previous owner also had to replace many parts as well.
The car has pretty good acceleration for a 2.2L motor, however it is NOT a race car, and must be treated with care.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
