Review

I was involved in a bad accident in
this car. The car was totaled, both
airbags deployed, and the car was hit
at a speed in excess of 50mph. I was
driving and was able to walk out of
the hospital the same day. The safety
features of this car are excellent. I
loved the car while I had it.


Best Features

AWESOME V-6 engine


Worst Features

uncomfortable seating

Review

I can't beleive that this car was
replaced by the champions of recalls
(the Focus). This car looks great,
has loads of power, a very reliable
engine/transmission (My first
priority) AND outstanding handling. I
will conceade that it is not the ideal
familly vehicle as was intended by
Ford due to restricted (even after
improvement in 98)rear seat. A child
seat is very difficult to use. But
this was not a conscen for me. The
Duratec is the only All aluminium,
dual overhead cam north american
engine. And no this is not a Mazda
Engine , this is Ford's. And in a 3.o
Liter( I wish) the standard engine in
base Jaguar S type, Lincon LS, and
Jaguar X-type.


Best Features

Power, handling , reliability, looks (LX V6/SE)


Worst Features

Bring back to North America. Why do the Europeans get to keep it (Mondeo) and a new version to add insult to injury (the Focus)

Review

I think this car is nice to drive.
Good handling, acceleration and even
abraking system. However, the
reliability of this car is far from
perfect. Normally, cars from Ford is
in the same situation.

Worst Features

Interior and Finalizing of the car
