I think that if Ford stuck with this
car for as long as Japanese Co. usaully
do, then they would have a winner. It
takes time to work out gremlins. If the
driver follows the owner manual
checkups and replaces the timing belt
at 60,000, then you may get a good car
for the money. Before you buy: check
heater switch, battery life, AC life,
Split rear seat, 5 speed transmission,
cab foward design, gas mileage, and
cost of ownership!
Buy the 6 cyl, 1997 or newer, 15"
wheels, tilt wheel.
