4.3

Old and outdated but solid as a rock.

This is one of the better cars we have owned over the last 40 years. Sort of an ugly duckling but absolutely reliable and durable. One of its best Trates is long distance road trips. We could do 500 miles per day in comfort day after day. For a big heavy car, it can get good gas millage, we got 27+ on the interstate. Day to day it was around 15 to 20 depending on how much we drove in the city.

GREAT MACHINE!

Absolutely without any doubts, I LOVE this car. It's a shame FORD will not build this ride again. After adding dual exhaust and tweaking the power a little, this thing moves. LOVE it!

5.0

Luxuary car with muscle.

I am the original owner of this car bought new in March 2010. I put a Borla dual exhaust system on it. Gives it more power and better gas mileage. I put a K&N air filter on it so it can breathe better. Car now has 54,000 miles on it. I meet the senior citizen status to drive it. Now I can hot rod the car and enjoy the smooth ride. After 10 years, it still has smooth cushy ride. Other than a couple of batteries and an alternator, this car has been little trouble. I love this car!
