I have been driving Mustangs for the past 16 years and with the birth of our 2nd child the backseat was beginning to get crowded. It was time to retire the '05 v-6 Mustang in favor for something that had a bit more room in the back. While the ST does not have as much room as our Edge, it does the job. This car handles well on the road and is very fun to drive. While it is a major change going back to front wheel drive, this car has delivered. The dash does have a heavier rubber type of finish that hopefully will keep it from cracking years down the road. The interior is upgraded from that of the standard Focus and the 6 speed gearbox snaps into the next gear as you tear down the road. YouTube has several good reviews.
Cons: bluetooth breaks often, gears get stuck, small interior space. I had to replace my transmission 2 months after purchasing the car brand new with 33 miles on it from Ford Country Gibson in Las Vegas. After it was "replaced" I continued having problems and had to get a rental car several times there after. Rain causes dings in the metal easily. Car shakes hard when stopped. Cheap interior. Small cargo space. And yes the moisture holds on to the windshield so it is hard to see when it is raining. I will say that the sound system is absolutely incredible and that handling is very smooth and easy.
It's a great car! audio plays really nice and has a setting to adjust depending on the outside volume. Seats are comfy. Large trunk. 3 people can fit comfortably in the back instead of the usual sardines in a can feeling. Steering/turns are great. Brakes really well.
