Had numerous repairs under waranty. As
car was new, I thought I had a real
lemon but repairs ceased as warranty
expired. Have car nearly 10 years and
variety of major repairs were needed:
Xmission (after 103K miles),
Alternator, Air Con, Cooling System,
and most recently, Brakes needed
complete overhaul. Lots of minor
repairs in last two years. Overall, car
served me well with 173K miles and
three kids growing up around it.
Roomy interior in front. Interior wears
well. Exterior paint held up despite
car was not garaged. Relaible start-up.
Interior hardware needs improvement
(door handles and air con vents). Fuel
Pump is extremely noisy - I guess this
has been redesigned years ago. Xmission
from Ford factory was not smooth.
Replacement Xmission from private
mechanic is better than the factory
