Ford Lynx (2002 - 2005)
We say:
Despite being in the Ford line-up for a relatively long time, the Lynx remained fresh with numerous upgrades. The one in 2002 featured new front and rear ends, capped off with the amazing 2.0-liter RS. Space isn't class-leading, but materials and overall assembly are commendable. Engines are all alright, but a bit buzzy at higher speeds. NVH also need some improvement.

Bang for the buck excitement.
Buzzy engines, NVH needs improvement.
