I bought this SUV as my first vehicle with 123,000 mile on it and the only thing to ever go bad was the heater core. The part was only 50 bucks. I installed myself to save money. The 4x4 feature is awesome. Auto 4x4. Great.
I have turned off the car and locked the door and then turn around reallizing I left the keys in the ignition like 5 times already. But if the key is in the ignition in any spot and you lock your doors the front driver door automaticly unlocks so you don't lock yourself out. Love the auto lights.
Make doing work on the car easier. Make it not so crammed together in there. At 125,000 miles the tranny is just slightly showing a little slow response in shifting.
I bought this car with 21k miles on it and from day one it has been hell. I had to repalce the fuel pump 2 times, the alternator, the ball joints on all tires, the driver and passenger door hinges, the catalytic converter, the muffler, all 3 oxygen sensors, the moonroof motor, shocks, the driver side window motor. Let's not forget to mention that I have to replace brakes every year and the fact that my fuel light comes on at about 170-180 miles on a fulltank of gas. Stay away from this truck. It is fun to drive, but it will always be in the repair shop.
The 4x4 is great and reliable. Never got stuck in the mud or snow here in Cleveland, Ohio
Make the truck more reliable. A longer warranty and higher quality parts that do not always break down.
I purchased this vehicle with 33,842 miles. At 36,597 the intake manifold valve had to be replaced. At 52,181 the ABS pump and master cylinder had to be replaced. The driver's back seat rest handle broke off and the mileage is horrible. It also is the noisiest vehicle I have ever driven. In essence, I have only driven this car 18,339 miles in 4 years (purchased in 2002). After reading the article in the Detroit Free Press, dated May 23, 2006, re: Dex-Cool, what might happen next??? I also got a printout of previous repairs and it's 2 pages long. Ford Fusion here I come! I have been a GM customer for 40 years and have always had problems. I'm DONE.
The overhead compass and the back hauling capacity.
Seems either you get a lemon or a peach. Where is the quality control?
