Performance

3 out of 5

Tall gearing means not break neck, then you look at the speedo and youre doing 60 without noticing.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Good apart from heatshields, which keep falling off resulting in rattles from underneath. Quite annoying.

OK. One of the best standard spoilers around. Every second driveway has escort though!

Comfort

1 out of 5

OK on motorway, good around town. Doesnt like traffic too much. Engine gets warm quickly, cooling fan always on.
