I have had my SEL for three years -- It feels solid, quiet, peppy now that I added a Ford Speed Werks cold air intake (CAI), and performance plugs...
Mileage is great, ride is plush, I put on performance tires - GF-Force to go along with CAI.
HP now is estimated at 172...also has a chip.
Extremely reliable even in -30 C. I like it better than new one - more distinguished design.
design, long hood, leather, fog lights, ride, performance, handling, gas consumption....looks like a North American Ford.
