      It's surprisingly roomy inside. However...we had to get one without the sunroof. I need that extra 2" of space in the roof. Test drove one with the sunroof and I'm bumping the top...

      Thanks...I ran it around town today, and then the 3 of us went out to DQ for a treat tonight....Average MPG around town...33.8 :D. My buddy has one and after putting 2500 miles on the motor he's up around 35 around town...not too shabby....

      My wife had a '98 Escort when I met her, and I called it the death trap. Just didn't like the way it was built. I'm happy with trading a few MPG's for good safety;) S60 get 28-29 average:thumbsup:

      Nice pick up Draper.

      Grandfather just picked up one with the I4 and manual. He just rolled over 3,000miles on her and is getting close to 40mpg. He loves that thing to death. Plenty of interior space and power for that DOHC I4. Ford has stepped up the quality margin a little.
