Lovely car to play with. Beats most other cars around the corners but not terribly quick in a straight line.
The traction control is fairly useless. The ABS works fine but the brakes could do with a little more bite.
Running costs are reasonable if you don't flog it - but then why bother with a Sports Coupe?!
It's actually also quite a practical small car - sufficient room in the boot for the weekly family shopping and room for two kids in the back. Actually there's room for two adults in the back if you're not going too far.
Rear visibility sucks but you get used to reversing by mirrors in the end.
The only serious problem with it is it's a Ford - the dealers are mostly incompetent and reliability isn't Ford's strong point. Still, at least I've been lucky with mine and repairs are cheap after all.
Overall an excellent car and definitely value for money if you buy it at Continental prices (~£12,000 OTR with all the goodies).
