Bought this car with 103k miles on it.
Had it thoroughly serviced and tuned up
by my brother a Ford master tech.
Plugs, wires a sensor and some vacuum
hoses. I also had the transmission
fluid flushed to correct a minor
shudder in the torque converter. Has
been a great car, 20-22 MPG around
town, 27-28 on trips. Trunk is huge,
will hold more than my minivan on
trips. I upgraded the shocks and added
a Posi rear-end. The car is a good
balance between handling and comfort.
I now have 157k miles on the car and
plan on keeping it
The car is tough and dependable, a good
balance between performance and
comfort, a great highway cruiser and
not bad on the twisty back roads.
Loads of room, good acceleration great
fuel economy. Will run all day with
the big dogs.
The interior door panel could be
designed better. The radio could be
better. Needs a bi-level selection on
the HVAC. Heavier duty brakes, I
