I still see tons of these on the road everyday, and mine has 360,000 miles on it. Probably the most reliable Ford to date. I have replaed only one clutch, brake pades, and the u-joints once. Gets decent mileage at 20 in town 23 out of town with the V-6 5 speed.
Turning radius and other driving capabilities unique to this car.
More power for V-6 and a lower center of gravity would be nice.
