I've had mine for 4 months and 8,500 miles. I have an SE without all the bells and whistles (no MFT, rain-sensing wipers, auto-park, etc. and none of the attendant problems). It's not perfect, but I'm quite satisfied so far.

I've run across a couple loose plastics; the black trim piece under the left side doors and the steering column cover. Nothing that couldn't quickly and easily be remedied by myself. I've had mine since July 1 and 3,100 miles. I am a very satisfied driver.

couldn't be happier, have the 5 spd SE Sport hatch, much like my old 2001 zx3 seems like this car was made for me. Just need the steering issue to get sorted (on order) and the squeaking headliner and I will be a happy camper.

We bought our SE hatch at the end of April, and 9K miles later I have no regrets.

SEL With MFT. I have only had a minor hiccup here and there with the MFT, but nothing worth mentioning.

I love this car! If I had a chance to do it agian, I would get the same exact model but maybe a different color.

I've had mine for a week now, just under 1,000 miles. I frickin love this car! My iPhone syncs perfectly. The tech features are awesome and I've been lucky enough to not have any issues. No paint issues (tri-coat yellow). No leaking. No missing parts. It rides smooth and shifts smooth (manual).

The only issue is the whistling side mirrors with windows down. That's hardly something I'd consider a deal breaker.

I think the only thing it needs (an I will be buying) is a stainless steel cat-back exhaust system. Just waiting for a good one to come out, I've heard Ford's isn't the greatest.
