Browsing the 07s

Mostly the Hatch.

Oddly tho im starting to really like the STs. Its weird, but with the SAP they look real nice.

But to the topic at hand. Any serious issues with the 07s i should know about? The car HAS to last a while as its going to get driven 200ish miles every day.

You should be great with an '07. 05's have some issues (wish I had gotten an 06 instead) but nothing major, just some glitches. I have not heard of these issues with the 06-07 though.

I'm 200 miles into ownership of my 07. So far, it's been pretty good.

Thats real good to hear.

Think im going to go for the 07 Hatch SES with SAP. For 14k thats hard to pass up.

Only option it dont have i beleive is the upgraded stereo, but really id just rip out the door and dash speakers anyways. :)




Is it just me, or are these forums strangle crawling atm? Thought it was me so i reset my network, but alas its not. Weirdness.

highly recommend the st with sap, its an amazing car and fast too..i've had my 2.3L for 38k so far and have had no motor issues yet! plus the upgraded stereo sounds soooo good...better than a lot of aftermarket jobs, i'd leave it in there for a while!

Only catch. the 1 ST thats loaded with all the goodies, is red.. I hate red. If it was black id do it in a heartbeat i think. Tho i can always talk to the ford peoples.


As for the stereo. Its kinda a semi hobby. Know my stuff there, and as "nice" as the upgraded one is, for "stock", its nowhere near as nice as even some 40$ SPL Deck and doors. Mind you, it would for sure hold me off until i do the carputer. :)

Oh no doubt itll be "slow" all around, but "quick" is a realitive term. Its got "Spunk", but by no means a speed demon. :)
