This is my third and favorite TBIRD to date... Compared to my 91 LX and 94 SC, this is an all-around improvement. I like everything about this model. Performance with the 4.6L V8 is great, fuel economy is at 23+ MPG, handling is great, OOOHMYGOSH comfort. No major problems mechanically. Very forgiving on the maintainence, not to say don't do it, but if you don't change the oil exactly at 3000-3500 miles there is no decrease in performance.
