My mom purchased car new in 99 because I recommended it, Nascar, and it's 5 star crash test rating. LOVED IT. Great Performance & Style, what made it was the opt. DOHC 24V & spoiler makes the car look 100% better (esp. in black). I inherited it in 06 w/ 47k mi. after it sat neglected in Fl for over a year, got it running & drove it back to home to it's origin in PA w/ no problems. Fixed it up and did some mods 2 up performance & looks, man did it make a difference. Engine purred even when stock, growled w/ aftermarket exhaust. I LOVED this car & made it into something beautiful, sold it @ 73k mi. because was time 2 move on to something that fit me better..Cobra. Farewell T..
24V DOHC Duratec, did i mention being able 2 burn out in a FWD family sedan? engine- in the new tarus's today & bored out to make 260hp! moonroof, spoiler, SHO chrome rims, space, exhaust, comfort esp. seats on long trips
TRANSMISSION. would be a much better car if it had a half decent tranny, sold mine before the inevitable.. Electronics, Power steering hose.
