This is the worst auto I have ever
owned. It has been in the dealership
shop at least once per month since I
purchased it. The engine sounds like
the valves are clattering all the
time. its had 6 new pistons,The
transmission rebuilt 3 times, the
interior lights turn off and on by
themselves. The lifters have been
replaced 1 at a time for over 2 years.
The doors leak. instrument panel went
out and that controls the theft and
ignition system. The intake manifold
has been replaced 4 times this is
normal for the intake to warp I'm
told. this is my first and last FORD.
When it runs, it rides very nice and
the seats are pretty comfortable
(great for waiting for the tow truck)
improve the wiring,the transmision,
and the quality of the factory.
Improve trouble shooting. If a car
comes in to the shop more than 4 times
in 6 months have a dealer rep check it
Bought it 3 yrs ago,vehicle was a year
old with 15,000 miles.Beutiful van
seemed to be a bargain at $17,700.Now
it,s barely worth anything with 45,000
miles,the tranny clunks like it may
fall out at any time.Front end
alignment is needed every 3-4
months,alot of vibration in steering
upon interstate driving.Also luggage
rack paint falling off.We are tring
despertly to get it traded in so I
don't have to try and sell it myself.I
am afraid I would give it away!
This vehicle has been nothing but
problems from the word go. At 25000
miles we were putting on new tie rods,
then again by 50000. Which is right
after we replaced the transmission at
45000. Wiper motor brakes at 60000
along with passenger door locks, power
sterring making terrible griding noise
and diver side power seat has been
repaired 3 times. Spark plugs have been
replaced twice. We have 65000 on this
car and I'm affraid to let my wife take
it out of town. Thank God for the
We like the enterior room and the
comfort of the drive.
The only way this car could be improved
would be to be built by another
manufacturer that actually places
quality working parts into their cars.
We will not ever by another Ford
This is my second rating...again, this
van has cost me nearly $1,500 in the
past six months and I have another 21
months to pay on this piece of junk. I
spent over $500 on replacing some
sensor that went bad and caused van to
stall. Now check engine light is on
and I'm told some carbon buildup,
leaking gasket allowing air and leaking
manifold are causing the problem.
Cost, a whopping $995 to fix. This is
my first and last FORD! What junk!
I paid over $40,000 for this van, I
expect better than a car worth $400!
