WHEN it runs, it's great. V6
with 5 speed manual is responsive
and fun. The ride is nice, seats are
comfy, and it holds cruise speed in the
mountains. But it is
simply unreliable. In the past 5
months, it has broken down 5
times. Starting at 36K miles (when we
should have seen "the signs" and dumped
it), countless trips to the shop
include catalytic converter, oxygen
sensor, mass air flow sensor, wiring
harness, EGR something-or-another, etc.
The part is NEVER in stock at my Ford
dealership, adding to the
inconvenience. I inherited this car
when I married my husband. My husband
is great, but the car is a lemon.
Peppy engine, fun five speed, moon roof.
Overall reliability and quality parts
that aren't farmed out to some shoddy
outside manufacturer. Cup holder that
actually holds a cup without the
passenger's seat getting in the way.
