Pretty pearl paint has numerous
imperfections, front cap was so shoddily
mounted that factory bra wouldn't fit!
Next problem was the transmission, it came
up for recall. Since that time, it has had 3
complete rebuilds. Ford caught 2 of them
under warranty and I paid for the last one.
The V8 is a decent motor, too bad it was
backed up by such a dog transmission.
However, when everything is working right, it
is a blast to drive. Still love the styling,
almost a direct knockoff of a BMW 6 series
coupe! Leather seats are supportive, have
held up well, Moonroof has never leaked.
The car is a Jeckyl/Hyde.
My better idea? NO MORE FORDS!!!
Exterior styling, fun to drive, sometimes...
Those cupholders, explain the whole car!
Job 1 and Better Idea folks were taking a
break when this one was screwed together.
