Other than the fact that someone on the line put a black interior door-pull on the front passenger-side door, the car is superb.

I wouldn't trade it for anything in it's segment.

I've had mine for 4 months/4800 miles (as of 9/7). It's a great car for the money (fantastic mileage, excellent 5-speed, tons of safety features, great styling, engine has loosened up nicely).

I still don't like the electric steering much (especially at high-speed), but I'm hoping that there will be a recall for that.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with it. Can't wait to check out the ST!

I've had my S sedan 4 months now, and have 4,400 miles on it. So far I really like the car. It's got a sweet shifting 5spd, and even "stripped", it has a/c, am/fm stereo, cd, and front power windows, sorry back seaters. I do miss the grunt of my Mustang GT, but, the 35ish mpg on 87 makes up for it real, real nice. It also shows great promise in the twisties. The only issue I've had, is accidentally turning on the headlights with my knee getting out of the car, hence the "headlights on" warning chimes for us clumsy folks. Overall it's a great blank sheet waiting to be hopped up and ridden hard.

After 3200 miles, very much happy with my choice. I haven't suffered any of the MFT issues, squeaking, squealing, rattling, jerking, stalling, drifting, shifting, not shifting, overheating, underheating, galloping, moaning, groaning, buzzing, leaking, chiming, clanking, grinding, clicking, swishing, swooshing, modulating, pro-creating, or gesticulating that I've heard about on the forum.

I guess I just got one of the "good" ones.

I love it, but it took me a few months to get to that point. Having said that, it has nothing to do with the car. My experience at my dealership was totally horrific. Not from a cost perspective(although I think they could have moved more on the price). I don't care what something costs, as long as the cost is acceptable for me. I am not a bargain hunter. The customer service at my dealership was a gong show, and it went on and on and on. The only reason I still bought the car through them, is because my options are not common at all, and I would have to order another car and wait.

I have since moved all my servicing to another dealership (Woodridge Ford in Calgary by the way, is super honest and fair, I really like them) and I can now finally enjoy my car since I know I am being taken care of.

Sure, I have had a few small glitches, but overall, things are pretty rad.

No offense, and I am not mentioning any names, but some of you dudes are far too picky. I love Ford, and have owned many of them, but it is still just Ford, with all due respect.

Let the flaming begin :)

I've had mine since 8-18, 1000 miles and loving it. I enjoy driving it, and have averaged 33 mpg so far. The main reason for getting it was to save money at the pump, and I am, 130.00 per month. I had 1 incident one day when the sync and mft stopped working, but after shutting the car off, it reset and has been fine ever since.

Had my 5-spd SE hatch for 1.5 months now, and all i can say is this car is awesome so far! I have had no issues, and my only gripe is that on the SE models the power cuts to the windows when you turn the car off! (as opposed to when you open the door for the stereo) But that is hardly a deal breaker

Undisputably love my car! I actually say that everyday as I get ready to leave for work. Love it and everything about it. Wouldn't even consider anything else in the segment and probably wouldn't even budge for much in higher segments.

That's about my only gripe too, but I'm sure there's a way to change that. Somebody just has to figure out how.
