Reviews and Ratings
Overall
Pros Cons
Gas mileage - manual 5 speed gets 33 - 36 Not enough room in back seat
Handling - suspension & traction control / torque vectoring Manual transmission is not offered with premium packages
Windshield is huge and allows me to see great driving forward! Trunk lid needs to raise higher - you bump your head if tall
I love the ambient lighting and dashboard lights - it gives a high - tech look. The new transmission - too much delay when you hit gas.
Heating, ventilation and a/ c are quick to work Car rolls back, when you take brake off on a hill
The audio / stereo system is awesome! very clear sounds Warranty should be as strong as the foreign car companies!
Steering wheel controlls - especially for cd & radio Rockers on trunk - sharp; items must be placed away from them
Steering - handling around corners Ride - rough, but i came from a bonneville
I like the styling and handling. looks great & drives nice No automatic lighting when you start your engine like toyota.
No bail - out money from government-reason i chose ford Mileage has not reached 30 mpg & getting worse!
