Overall, a terrible, TERRIBLE car...in
only 2 years/24,000 miles of
ownership, it had a plethora of
problems...mostly suspension related.
Then the auotmatic tranny blew at
65K...1K miles after the extended
warranty expired. Wound up doing
battle with Ford on this repair. Ford
didn't want to budge, but with the
help of my state's attorney general's
office, I managed to get a $1,000
settlement. Three weeks after it was
fixed this lemon was gone...traded it
in '99 and haven't looked back since.
Handled and drove decent...that is
when it wasn't on a lift being fixed
Where to begin...a better automatic
transmission, cheaper parts to lower
maintenance costs, more sturdy
suspension, and better quality control
in general. Ford, PLEASE improve your
car products, or I'll never come back!
