We got this car new in 2008.
Ford was so confident in the car's performance they gave us a 5 year or 100,000 mile warranty on it!
My wife put over 20k miles on it a year and it never had a problem except
battery went out at 80k miles.
The car is awesome on gas 30 mpg highway and like 27 city.
Even with 89,000 miles we got 8k for trade in.
I am not typically a big fan of American sedans but this car was roomy, reliable, inexpensive, maneuvered well, and out-performed my expectations!
I would def buy another someday :)
