The cargo storage space is great. I like how small it is since it makes parallel parking pretty easy, even despite me being out of practice (haven't had a car for a year and a half). The stock 6 CD stereo is surprisingly good and I feel no compelling urge to replace it, although I would like an auxiliary port to connect a portable music player. As long as it's reliable, as I've heard late-model Fords to be, then I will be happy with it for a long while to come.
Hey there! Congrats on your new car!
Mine is a 2010 (I'm an Aussie so my FF looks different to the ones in the States) and I love the USB & aux ports! I'm amazed at how much I use them. Great for when there is nothing but crap on the radio
