it came in a lot of base model hatches and sedans till they ran out of them. easiest thing to do before buying is to open the hood. if it looks like this under there

its an spi and should be avoided, or a least purchased with the mindset that it will fail on you eventually

if it looks like this however

its a zetec. which is a sturdy little engine
