Review

I originally thought that I was got a great deal on this car off the Ford 'B' Lot, but am starting to question it. I purchased the extended warranty, which covered the total cost of the "blown" engine ($5500 at the dealer) at 58K Miles, but since then, there has been a vibration in the steering wheel (motor mounts ???). The car is in the shop now needing a new battery and accessory cable plus distribution box. Estimate given was over $1,000 for the repair. Overall though, it's been a very nice ride and great ergonomics/human factors.

Favorite Features

Large Low Turnk, Easy Access Doors and Seating, Great Instrument Panel Layout and Ergonoics with everything easy to reach, Traction Control and Anti-Lock Brakes.

Suggested Improvements

Cup Holders - You have to pull it/them up and open to use it/them for the driver and front-side passenger.
