Review

I purchased my truck new almost 4 years ago, and have had no problems. It handles great in poor weather, it's reliable, and the sound system is superb. As for fuel economy, it's an SUV, so it's not great. Compared to other SUVs though, it's not bad.

Review

I purchased my Sport in the fall of 1999. I was happy at first but oh how things have changed. The gas mileage is horraid, all the recalls form the tires to the problem with the windshield wiper/turn signal electric box (3 times there) and then the problems with the ride quality. When taking turns it feels as if i'm going to lose control of the car and tumble over making me feel unsafe. And now that I have gotten to over 40,000 miles the engine is giving me problems. The only good thing about buying a Ford is Ford Credit, other than tht I will never buy a Ford again. It seems all the old sayings are true ...


Favorite Features

Roomy interior
