Ford Focus wagon - little car that could
Pros: tons of space
Cons: looks too much like a mini vanHad the car for almost 7 years. Still using the OEM battery. I've changed the oil/filters and tires - nothing else. No problems. 38 MPG on the highway (if I stay under 75) 30 mpg in town. I can haul my bikes, kayak, 4 people and a lot of camping gear with no problem. Need a dresser moved - no problem. Tons of space, great gas mileage and reliable - what else is there?
Pros: the ride
Cons: nothingGreat on gas. 35mpg average. Relatively comfortable for a small car. Better than average performance.
Mustang Legend Lime Convertible
Cons: what is not to like? nothingoutstanding automobile, responds very well to minor changes to computer tune. thousands of aftermarket items available for this car. Ford someone hit a homerun with a 2 strike count with this retro styled beauty. If they make the legend lime color available again i would buy a new GT in a heartbeat, meanwhile i plan on upgrading my engine to match 2011 HP figures. this car is so special and such a hit with the consumer chevrolet and dodge manufactured their own retro camero and challenger, but sadly they missed the high standards set by the Mustang.
Pros: body style
Cons: little stiffvery very dependable and economical
Lots f fun!
Pros: The sound of the engine.
Cons: fit & finishLove to cruise this rag top mustang. I think it could be made better but for the price I think you can't beat it.
2.3 ZX3 Great little car.
Pros: The 2.3 Liter Duratec/5-Speed combo
Cons: The appearance from the rear.Peppy. The 2.3 easily out-accelerates average traffic and still gets 30+ mpg. Reasonably comfortable but a bit noisy. Handles well for a front-drive. Cheap to operate and insure. I drove a 2.0L SVT and it was a dog compared to the 2.3 Duratec. Trouble is, the 2.3 was only available in 2003-2004 in the 3-door model.
A winner GT with 5 speed
Pros: V-8 power and decnt gas mileage
Cons: passenger seat does not adjust for heightFord gets it right with this one.
