EXCELLENT experience over the last 8 years. Only repairs were a new radiator and 3 clutches. The last being the "final" lesson. Got a Grizzly Racing clutch that I should have put in 8 years ago; the Ford clutches stink.
I love this car so much. No sedan can
compare to the raw, unyielding power
of this four door muscle car. I get
twenty miles to the gallon, AND can
haul all my friends around rather
comfortably. This car is the perfect
blend of performance, sports car feel,
luxury, and practicality, although I
do agree with everyone else's reviews
in that these cars are EXTREMELY
expensive to fix. Believe me though,
if you enjoy driving like I do, the
expenses of upkeep pale in comparison
to the amount of exileration you feel
when you hear the roar of that
freakishly powerful Yamaha engine.
Yamaha powerplant, Mazda 5-speed,
leather, JBL, dual exhaust, what's not
Ford should have let Yamaha build the
whole car, because the engine is
killer, but be weary of anything that
came from a Ford manufacturing plant
on the car, ie interior pieces,
suspension components, etc.
