Bought this car used in 2001. Have had only minor repair issues. Engine is powerful even when fully loaded and has been flawless. Great for hauling people, not stuff. Back seats don't fold down for additional storage room. They just sit there like lumps on a log. Not the nimblest at handling either.
Engine power even when fully loaded. Fits seven passengers comfortably even for long rides. Roomy and comfortable driving position for 6' 3" driver.
Fold down back seats. Ford always seems to be 2-3 years behind Toyota and Ford in product innovation. Better gas mileage.
