Owned 5 years and 75K miles to 135K
(60K). Yamaha engine is strong,
smooth, and durable. Any older car
needs alternators, water pumps,
starters, belts, A/C compressors,
cooling system repairs, and has oil
leaks. Oh, and that "check engine"
light; replaced the computer.
No electrical bugs in mine. Auto
trans sometimes confused by power
downshifts. I like my grey
cloth/leather interior with no fake
wood trim, auto climate control, auto
headlites, cornering lites, and
premium sound, but wish it had a CD
player, and wish it had the FoMoCo
keypad entry system.
Replaced the struts when it was in
to have the steering rack replaced.
Engine, handling, looks (it is
pleasing,looks a little
more "purposful" than a standard
Taurus, but still "stealthy"),
interior with no fake wood, and those
adjustable seats. It is smooth,
strong, agile and fast. Fun to drive!
Ford, make another one. Use Lincoln
LS "sport" as base, but SHO meaner and
