I bought my car because it looked
awesome, the price was low, and it had
low mileage (54,000 when I got it in
2001). Ford had a customer care on the
head gaskets for the 3.8L. Mine blew
with 80,000 miles. Ford wouldn't do
anything to help me out with it, even
though it was well under the 100,000
mile extended warranty. Mechanic at
dealership told me that a majority of
those that blow head gaskets that he's
fixed end up locking up about a month
later because of the damage already
done from the head gaskets. Not going
to buy anything Ford ever again.
Terrible gas mileage too. I had to
fill up about 1.5 times a week.
Expensive when gas shoots up.
Interior design very nice. Good pick up
Gas mileage terrible. Head gaskets
problems, so stay away. Small back
seat if you neet to cart around
