It was a beautiful car. basically
reliable, but many minor problems.
Chrome bumper strips peeled off, low
coolant light came on, water leaks
inside car, power window kept going out
and back on. Rode too hard for my
tastes, especially impact harshness.
V6 good on gas at 28 mpg, but short
gearing kept the car revvy while
accelerating. seetled down at cruise
though. Handling seemed pretty good
though and the car was quiet enough.
Oh, it had the a/c go out and the
intake plenum went bad causing an oil
leak, both fixed under warranty or
before purchase, great service from
dealer, if a little inconvenient, but
for $4000 what can i expect?
styling, roomy trunk, nice wheels on SE
I thought ford focused on quality, but
not from what i have seen, workmanship
seemed good, but something happened
along the way.
