Absolutely great car. Best car I've owned
Needed general maintenance, such as:
Spark plugs replaced at around 83k.
Tires replaced around 83.5k.
Interior was a bit worn (thanks to previous owner).
Saves me so much on gas it's not even funny, I can drive and drive for miles and not worry about gas like I used to with my Blazer.
This is a great car, and the clutch has lasted me for a while, considering it's still original and I learned on it =).
The drive-train of this car has lasted me through thick and thin. This is an excellent car for anyone looking for it. It may be Ford built, but I believe I got the jewel of the pile.
I recommend this car to anyone looking for a cheap, gas efficient car, and it makes it fun that it's a five speed =D.
Very classy car, looks sleek and "presidential".
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
