it's about time ford trys to compete with those ultra compact cars that a lot of the other companys already have out. we almost bought a honda fit.. luckily it was slow as ***** and i talked my dad out of it, lol. the mileage on these cars though is nice

Speaking of small SUV's, is it just me or do the old 1988 Dodge Raiders look like Land Rovers? I did some research on those little buggers, and they seem like pretty awesome offroaders!

i had a 1988 Mitsubishi Montero (same exact thing as the Dodge Raider). everyone thought it was a land rover. i barely ever corrected them, lol. i'd give anything to have that p.o.s. back now, lol... it was so fun to drive.
