Forgot about the air bag recall...both of mine replaced. Also forgot about the cowl drains easily clogging with debris. My car garage kept & I avoid parking under debris shedding trees. Also, many reported issues with the CD player jamming. Only used mine once with no jams. When I read of this, downloaded all my CD's to ITunes, bought an ipod which I plug in set to shuffle play before I head out. Take my time shifting, especially when cold, so no synchro issues to report. Many here seem to like to replace the stock shifter with MGW or Barton brands. I haven't.
Guess I lucked out...also have hearing issues, so if the rear end whines, I don't notice it. It is an overall noisy car...a wind whistle noise, tire noise on anything but a really smooth road, engine & exhaust, etc.. Perhaps not the sound deadening of other cars, but I kind of expected that...it's a Ford, after all...not a Lexus.
(edit) It's not an excellent car, but overall, it's worked well for me. Since I bought it, my body betrayed me via a snapped tendon in my left ankle giving me a floppy foot. Makes clutch work difficult, but that's not the car's fault. If I get another car, it will have an automatic.
