I bought this car used at 70K miles, six months later the transmission went up. I replace brakes once a year and the interior light/door ajar bell won't go off in the winter time. 2 yrs. later, transmission went up again at 120K. I will never buy another Ford! The only good thing about the van, comfy seats and easy to get our 2 small children in and out of. I am going to purchase a Toyota or Honda this weekend!
