At just under 79000 miles I lost the
head gasket and had scoring on the crank
and cam. With the Best Care Warranty, I
now have a new engine and should get
another 200,000 miles out of this car.
This car is an ideal drive for any
distance. My monthly trips across the
Plains (750miles) is a pleasure except
that I have no place for my coffee cup.
The 3.8L engine runs solid and steady
with a surprising great gas milage of
better than 34 mpg.
The maroon red color is still glossy
like new. The ride is so smooth you
could almost take a nap while driving
and still feel safe. Ford Service is
definitely Quality Job #1.
I need the girl from the original adds
to replace the cup holder in the console
that I didn't find until 2 months after
I bought the car.
