Well, I bought this car because it
was inexpensive. Right after I got it,
it started getting all kind of leaks.
The CV joints went bad though the boots
were good. The motor, tranny, and power
steering all had minor leaks. The AWD
didn't work, the car got bad mileage,
and the door handles ALL fell off. The
radiator fan needed replacement, along
with numerous sensors. The auto front
belts were slow and noisy. Chaep car.
Avoid these even if they're inexpensive
and look nice.
Price; Nicely weighted steering. Had
tall ground clearance and looked cool.
Good quality red paint. Good interior
fit and finish. Typical solid Ford
Awful ergonomics. Cheap buzz saw motor.
Old Ford style reliability.Numerous
electronic glitches and low power.
Leaks from everything except window
