ReviewAt 100,000 the transmission in this vehicle was ruined requiring a remanufactured one at 2,900.00 (including the towing). This vehicle has had all maintenance performed at the designated intervals. Immediately after purchase the transmission dumped its fluid requiring repair by the dealer. After the repair the following day it dumped its transmission fluid again. I have contacted Ford customer relations regarding the failure of the transmission and the fact that the early problems caused the later failure. I have found no one at Ford concerned enough to research my claim. Apparently it is normal for the transmission to go out at 100,000miles.
Best FeaturesInterior is well designed. Performance with the sohc six and five speed automatic (when working) is very impressive. Handling is very good.
Worst FeaturesDesign the major components to outlast the original battery with routine maintenance.
