Check to see if it has a new engine

Replaced the engine at 79800 miles. And the turbo was bad as well. $8800 to fix a car worth $13000 at the time. Any other questions?


Terribly deigned car

I like the cruise control and the amount of trunk space and that's it! Some of the issues I have are safety related some are just personally irritating. I hate that I can't access the center console without taking my eyes of the road because it's too deep, the cd and media controls are too far to comfortably reach, and glove box is impossible to reach from drivers seat. I hate that every light in the car comes on and stays on too long when you open the door. The vents are positioned so that it's impossible to get them to blow directly on you. Normally I would rest the back of my heel on the floorboard and be able to reach the gas and brake pedals but I have to actually lift my leg up because the pedals are too high. The seat belt crosses over and covers the lever to manually adjust your seat. The steering wheel does pull out but also raises higher at the same time, so because I have long legs I can't comfortably/safely reach the steering wheel. This car has terrible blind spots. I'm not gonna go into detail about the mechanical issues I've had with the AC, or that I've replaced the battery 3 times in the 3 years I've owned it. Or that the transmission is slipping and I haven't even hit 90,000 miles yet. I could go on and on but these are the highlights. This is such a poorly designed car that it would take a lot for me to ever consider purchasing a Ford anything again.


An Awesome Vehicle

Been an awesome vehicle for our needs both in town or on the highway. Has been very reliable. Haven't experienced any problems with this great vehicle.
