I love the looks of this Ford Wagon design. It doesn't seem to age. The Gold color has grown on me, and now i like it. The car is reliable, excellent in all weather conditions (especially snow). Tons of room for kids, dump and coming home from Home Depot. Roof rack works excellent. It runs smoothly, I aways feel in control, has plenty of power when I need it. I'm bummed Ford no longer makes the wagon! I'd buy another in a second. I'd hightly recommend this wagon!
The traction, the looks, the reliability, never needs much maintenance. Must have been a car not built on a Monday or Friday!
Brakes have always seem to be noisy and not as smooth as they should be. Heat takes a while to get hot (in cold winter).
