Review
This car was specifically built for me. Within the first 2 years I began having throttle assembly problems. It's now on it's 4th TA. The throttle sticks in the idle position. Instead of paying $300 for another throttle body, a friend said to check the throttle fly. It was the problem. Carb cleaner fixed it. Carbon build-up was the culprit. Also one spark plug is located on the backside of the engine which means the engine has to be disassembled to change it. This makes normal maintenance be high dollar. Also, the transmission finally broke two months ago. $1600 to repair. No warning that the transmission was about to breakdown.
Favorite Features
Designed for the driver. Everything the driver needs is in easy reach.
Suggested Improvements
Allow easier access to the spark plugs. Determine a fix to the throttle assembly carbon build-up problem. MOST IMPORTANTLY, REDESIGN the transmission. There are a number of service bulletins against it. Ford SHOULD HAVE recalled to fix the problem.
