I bought this car in summer of '99 with
11k miles on it and now 3yrs later and
now at 60k miles, it still runs great!
It was my first car at age 15 and I
think this vehicle makes a GREAT
beginners car. The Winsheild wipers and
Firestone recalls were a bit of a
problem but the people at Ford replaced
the wipers hassle-free and Firestone
bought me $400 Goodyears. This SUV is
really good when towing(Jet Ski) and I
didn't have to buy a towing package
(Just a ball). Overall an EXCELLENT car!
