Growing up with many Fords, even going back to the Model - Ts, I have to say this is the worst car to purchase and has ruined my relationship with Ford and its products. The car was ordered to gain all features desired; the dealership had to order it twice to get it right! As of buying it Jan of 2005 I have had: two dead batteries, all sensors replaced twice for doors and trunk, when filling gas tank the pump clicks out and/or then the tank will over fill and spill about a gallon of gas, windows stuck in the down position when closing the doors, fuel emission issues, same tail light burning out, paint separation from body in spots, constant rattling noise, CONT BELOW
Color and style. That's about it.
Very hard gear shifting and becomes stuck at times (Automatic), hard to start, gas gauge stops working when the temperature dips below 75, interior is cheap and "leather" is peeling off seats, coating on stereo comes off when touched, do I need to go on?
