I bought this car in 1998. I have put over 90,000 miles on it since. Not having problems with the transmission just average maintenance done and a few minor repairs but has been a very good car for me and my family. Sorry for all of you that had all those problems.
Good looking car, very dependable for me.
Always could be better but if it's not broke I am not going to complain.
Head gaskets (twice), 4 starters, 2
alternators, bad factory rotors, 2
radiators, brake lines, water pump,
rack & tie rods the list goes on and
on. But Fords are my mechanics favorite
cars, and he has a new boat to prove
it. Many rattles, sqeaks and noises.
The repairs were many even when the car
was new. I should have sold it years
Very reliable and comfortable car.
Front wheel drive for good handling in
bad conditions.Fold down rear seats
allow for versatility in moving cargo.
Roomier than the newer body designed
Tauruses. No major mechanical issues
over the ten years owned.
