Well, I bought this car with 75K on it and put 6000 miles on it within 3 months. When I bought it I didn't know that transmission slips @ 65-75 m/hr. I had to push gas and the problem seemed to go away, then it would do this again (probably transmission, I don't know). Also EGR censor went bad - another $75, easy to change though. Engine is strong, yet seemed to leak some oil, very little. Overall it's a very comfortable ride, dual air, dual sliding doors, tinted windows, alloy wheels, exterior design is pretty good for that year. I wish they could improve the quality, other than that it's an ok experience. Quality Ford, when you improve the quality?
Comfort, strong 3.8L engine, soft ride.
CD has to be standard for 2000. Quality needs to be improved, otherwise it's a pretty comfortable car.
