I've had the car for about 7 months now, and haven't had any problems with it. Everything works great. The motor, transmission, radio, a/c, no electrical problems. It doesn't even burn much oil for such an old car. I go at least 500 miles without having to add a quart. The only problem I have with it is the lack of power. It is the slowest thing I've ever driven. Other than that it's been extremely reliable and smooth.

Many electrical problems, oil leaks, make sure you get the ignition switch replaced (it was recalled for this), had trouble with the starter twice in 2 years, but it has the engine that just won't die. It was always pretty reliable. The transmission didn't need replacing until 145,000 miles. The design of the radio/air conditioner switches is horrible and breaks easily. The seats are very comfortable and it rides pretty smoothly for a small car. It isn't much to look at but the paint lasts a long time with no rust. Just about everything else will fall off but the engine will keep going!

This car is horrible.We decided to buy
the all wheel drive version. We tried
to use it in winter and I noticed it
did not work well. We took it to the
dealership and after about 2 years of
ownership we found the a.w.d wasn't
even working. It was the main reason I
purchased the car. The car has stalled
numerous times, has broken down and
been needed repaired about weekly. It
never starts on winter mornings and
the drivers seat is broken and
slouches back to one side. Poor
quality across the board. I will find
it difficult to buy a Ford again after
this car. YIKES!!
