Leased a 2000 XLT w/ Sport Package,
5.4ltr., auto., 4x4 w/ automatic 4
wheel drive option for 3 years. I
liked the power from the 5.4 since
this is a BIG vehicle, had front and
rear air and heat, third seat a joke,
great stereo w/ 6 disc cd changer, and
the ride height made me feel king of
the road. Had to replace transmission
at 54,000 miles; not pleased. Don't
use the auto 4 wheel drive in snow
unless you want in a ditch, gas milage
was about 14 on highway, 10 in city. I
don't think I'll buy another one.
Ride height, engine power, roomy
Better gas economy (everyone wants
that), engine noise, rear seat
replacement, DON'T BUY ONE W/ 16"
WHEELS; YOU'LL GET SEASICK!! My wife
did on test drive.
