This car was purchased new and we now have 117k miles on it and have never done anything to it except the 100k mile tune up. It has been well worth the purchase price and if Ford still made them we would buy another one.
With the 5 speed tranny we get 35mpg. Love the keyless entry, great design for the year.
Less hassle to replace the factory radio which is built in with the heater control panel.
