Owned one for 9 years. Duractec V6 is
responsive and pulls hard all the way
to redline (6700rpm). Amazingly good
cornering and handling. ABS brakes
excellent. Sold after 135K miles.
Auto Tranny never an issue - changed
fluid every 35K as they suggest.
Sound of Duratec at 6500 rpm! Great
Handling. Awesome stopping power
(205/65/R14 tires). Comfortable and
Problematic at gas pump (often
prematurely cuts off pump), even simple
maintenance is challenging. Duratec V6
is incredibly tight fit - dont know how
they got it in there.
