This is the best car I have ever
bought. I bought it used in 1999 with
52000 miles on it. Now it has 129500
miles and has only been in the shop
twice other than oil changes. Mine has
the 4.6 liter V8 and at 104000 miles
the air intake manifold started leaking
antifreeze. This was a defect on this
engine. It was made of plastic but
Ford pays to replace it from a recall
that came out. The new one is made of
cast metal. The only other problem I
encountered was a leak in the fuel line
by the fuel tank and had the section of
line replace. The front brakes went
out at 116000 miles and I am still
operating on the original rear brakes.
In 129500 miles I have only put 250.00
in repair cost. The engine is very
powerful and gets good gas mileage
considering the V8. With all the miles
I still get 24 mpg.
