Road Test Results

Performance
Acceleration Acceleration Acceleration tests are conducted on a smooth, flat pavement straightaway at the track. Time, speed, and distance measurements are taken with a precise GPS-based device that’s hooked to a data-logging computer.
0 to 60 mph 0 to 60 mph (sec.) The time in seconds that a vehicle takes to reach 60 mph from a standstill with the engine idling.
Transmission Transmission Transmission performance is determined by shifting smoothness, response, shifter action, and clutch actuation for manual transmissions.
Braking Braking The braking rating is a composite of wet and dry stopping distances and pedal feel. Braking distance is from 60 mph, with no wheels locked.
Emergency Handling Emergency Handling Several factors go into the rating, including the avoidance maneuver speed and confidence, as well as how the vehicle behaves when pushed to its limit.
Comfort / Convenience
Ride Ride Our expert judgment of how well the suspension isolates and absorbs road imperfections and how steady it keeps the body on various road surfaces.
Noise Noise Our expert judgment of the vehicle's interior noise level in everyday driving.
Front Seat Comfort Front Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the front seat is for drivers of various heights.
Rear Seat Comfort Rear Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the rear seat is for two passengers to sit across.
Interior Fit and Finish Interior Fit and Finish An expert evaluation of the interior quality and craftsmanship.
Trunk/Cargo Area Trunk/Cargo Area Our rating is based on the amount of luggage or cargo space that a vehicle has in the trunk or cargo area.
Fuel Economy & Emissions
Fuel Economy Fuel Economy We perform our own fuel-economy tests, independent of the government's often-quoted EPA figures and the manufacturers' claims. Using a precise fuel-flow measuring device spliced into the fuel line, we run two separate circuits to represent city and highway consumption.
CR's Overall Mileage CR's Overall Mileage CR's overall mileage is a composite of measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course and highway cruising; and CR's 150-mile test trip of mixed driving, if tested. In recent road tests, we've discontinued the 150-mile trip test.
CR's City Mileage CR's City Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course.
CR's Highway Mileage CR's Highway Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed highway cruising.
Annual Fuel Cost Annual Fuel Cost The cost and amount of fuel used in 12,000 miles and is calculated from CR's overall mileage.
Greenhouse Gas Greenhouse Gas The Greenhouse Gas Rating represents the amount of carbon dioxide the vehicle emits compared to other vehicles of the same model year. This score from the EPA ranges from 1 (worst) to 10 (best).
NA
Smog Rating Smog Rating The Smog Rating represents the amount of health-damaging and smog-forming airborne pollutants the vehicle emits compared to other vehicles of the same model year. This score from the EPA ranges from 1 (worst) to 10 (best).

Owner Reports

Worse Better
Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Display screen freezes up

"dThis happened only once. I was in a hurry and had some difficulty holding my foot on the brake in sync with pressing the start button. The sputtered but enventually started. I started drivinging and noticed that I had no dash gauge info. When I got to where I was going and restarted to leave everything came up normally and has ever since"

Display screen goes blank

"Started with frequent shut downs with software updates u til one day the screen went blank rendering no access to my heat/cooling controls, radio, backup camera, Bluetooth and navigation. Had to go to dealership who proceeded to inform me it needed a manufacturers software update. Has worked fine ever since. Seems coincidental I had received a notice from Ford prior to this stating I needed to purchase a new SD card for the navigation system to update my maps. That was several hundred dollars and didn't want to not for that. I ended up having to pay for it even though I purchase the extended warranty which covered everything."

This has obviously been a common problem as both dealers I talked to were immediately aware of the issue AND there was a temporary out of stock situation with the light when I first tried to buy it. It is a TOTAL headache to replace this unit as you have to remove the rear air dam to get to it. In the process of removing the air dam, three screw spun out in their holders and had to be cut off with a Dremel tool and replaced. Also, 3 of 5 plastic rivets (tabs) broke and had to be replaced.

Ford refused to get the correct electronic ignition part in to fix for several weeks until I finally served a New York State Lemon Law Notice and called the Regional Manager. The problem was wide spread and the part was on way back order with a number of cars at this dealership waiting for over a month for this part. I was lucky that Ford overnight the part to the dealership after my complaints."
