So far in the past week of owning this car, I've been left stranded twice. Both times were caused by a failed shifter cable end. The other complaint I have about this car, is the non-functional 6 disc cd changer, this car will be the last Ford I own and quite possibly the last domestic. In fact if I didn't owe so much on this pile, I would be trading it for a last gen Civic SIR, or a Jetta TDi.
Handling, and decent fuel mileage.
I could probably write a book, but what's the point? Ford no longer makes this car.
