This car which I bought with 112,000 miles on it, has about 119,000 in 5 months and since then I had to flush all fluids, change stereo, previous owner blew all speakers, new exhaust, master cyllinder and brake booster. Car now needs complete rear brake system overhaul, a radiator, door seals, plugs and wires, headlight covers (sun damaged plastic), a door lock motor, headlight and seatbelt dinger, a battery, tires, and soon will need rotors and pads in front as well as alternator, fuel, water and power steering pump acting up. Car has always started but does not ever function right. Gas mileage is horrible.
Cheap, runs, safety in a crash, somewhat comfortable even for a 6'6" guy, relatively good torque for a 3L, engine never dies although everything else will.
Well some quality would be nice, Ford can't even make my speedometer be correct; cops checked it for me, inconsistent under 40 MPH. Engine fans have 5 recalls for causing engine to catch on fire. Transmission that don't clunk and miss gears, decent gas milage for a small engine (about 17-19 mpg even on highway).
