By now some of the interior plasic parts are giving out like sun visors or driver seat parts, important stuff. Drive train noises like either bearings or rear end oil. After all it does have 165,000 miles and these things are expected, however ive had Nissan and Toyota whan I was thinner and small vehicles don't work but they lasted forever, its just good for BASIC transportation. Rough ride and cheap.
its not so bad yet, will buy again but will fix or maintain elsewhere than ford
replace those plastic parts on visor hinge with metal, and a more reliable radio cd system.
