I bought the car in 1996 from a Ford dealer. It had 21,000 miles and in perfect condition. This has been my family car as well as a business use car. There have been no major problems with the car and it is in great condition. The body is in great shape with one door dimple. There are a couple of dimples on the roof from a hail storm but barely noticible. The interior is in good shape and is clean. The tires are Goodyear tires and are like new. The car has never been in an accident of any kind. The oil was changed at about 4,000 miles. There is a rattle up front that could be associated with the shock absorber. Mechanic could not find it.
The car gets great mileage and it still looks good. This could be a great car for a student or someone who is operating on a low budget. Mechanically the car is in good shape..
There is a rattle up front that I do not know what is causing it. A mechanic has looked for it and cannot find the reason. There is a "light out" indicater but for the last 11 years I have not been able to find any lights out. I think it is a faulty indicater.
