Overall they're good cars, although myself and T_B are in the UK so our version might differ from US spec models. Only thing I'd say about the Ford Zetec engine is make sure the recommended oil is used, as using the incorrect viscosity wont do them much good. I've never put the wrong stuff in one, but I'm guessing that putting too thick an oil in it will inevitably lead to noisy tapets as that's the reason Ford gave us for using the "thin as water" type stuff, lol. Other than that, it's just little things that they suffer, like lower arms wearing a bit too quickly for most peoples liking. To be honest, all of the above should only be taken into account if you plan on buying one, as they are great cars, probably even the best in their class!
