Excellent machine and very reliable, usual Ford which will let you know symptomatically that something is wrong before you get stuck, pretty much maintenance free (except for oil changes) until about 150,000 miles, would recommend air intake, O2 sensors, upper control arms and spring (expected in the northeast for the mileage, roads are terrible), traction control feature a must for this vehicle for performance and northeast climate. Will need reliable mechanic for some things as mentioned above, not for old school mechanics; there isn't a distributor so you have coil packs. I recommend the 4.6 v-8 with all the toys, do it right, only complaint is the location of the cup holders in the center console.
Traction control, v-8, moonroof, wheels & wide tires for performance. Overall look is economical. Gas mileage is good if you don't jump on it. Mine has 190,00 miles. Runs great, reliable and excellent performance, falls under special interest laws in R.I. therefore holds some kind of value.
Cup holders need to be in a different place, totally useless in the center console.
