This car starts up every time. I just reached 300,000Km and it's still running strong. Original motor and transmission. Great winter beater. The interior looks amazing, and its very spacious, however the outside has begun to rust (lower trim and doors) but this is to be expected from an old car.

Station wagons are cool after all!

This car has been very reliable throughout a viscous winter. The previous owner said he had another he had gotten over 200k out of.He used this car to tow his tractor and said he ran it hard. Initially blew off the possibility of buying this car, thinking station wagons are so outdated.Body is in great shape except for some rusting near lower trim area.Grandkids love the 3rd row seat facing backwards.Can fit 4' by 8' lumber in it. Love that unlike newer model cars, you can judge parking distances easily by seeing the front and back of the car.

I had bought the car from a indivual back in October of 2009 for My family im starting. The man told me what all had been done to it an said there are a few minor things wrong like a hole in the exhaust but i could hardly hear it. two months after owning the car it started giving me problems so i replaced the egnition switch didn't fix it Started thinking it was the fuel pump. So i contacted the man I had bought it from and we discussed what other problems it had and found out it may be the fuel relay switch. So, Got the part and installed it in a short 15 minute job and since then the car hasn't gave a problem. Other than that the car is a very depenedable one does great on gas just wish it was a little bit spacery due to me being a tall man.

Best money I ever spent

by from New Jersey on November 27, 2009

I've had this car for several years. It's been the most reliable car I've ever owned. Made 3 long trips from NJ to Fla. this year without a problem. 151,000 miles now ! Still going strong. 27 MPG !

good value -- easy on gas

by from Texas on February 3, 2009

I have one of these for a commuter car. The V6 is fairly peppy, but noisy. Like all fords, there is steering pump noise, but not bad. No major problems, but it is an old car so you never know. I like a car like this to commute in because it's fairly safe and economical. When I wear this one out I'll go find another.

Bought this car used. Shortly after driving off lot after purchase, check engine light comes on. Their mechanic not find anything wrong, reset the light. Within six months, started having problem with the car not starting after going a couple places, turning car off, and then it will not restart for anywhere between 10 minutes and one hour. Had to have towed two or three times. Finally, replaced fuel pump. Did not fix problem. Had to replace water pump around same time. Still have problem occationally. Then yesterday, car totally died - no warning - while driving down the road. Pushed off into parking lot. Next day it started up and took it home. Now it sits until I can figure out what is wrong.
