I was looking for something with room for grandkids, great ride and some fuel economy. Found it with this car. Lots of room, super ride with the air bags. And the car returns 22 mpg. It does wallow in the turns but it is a luxo car not a sports car. I love the retro interior and the leather, cloth combo wery nice. Since I know Ford products well I'm not worried about repairs when they come up. If your concerned about replacement costs for the air springs a pair runs around $100 not bad at all. This car is very quiet, all in all a super buy. If you want to spoil yourself for little money look for one of these. If you want max economy buy a micro car with no comfort.
Retro interior, digital dash, message center with instant mpg, avg mpg, 2 tripmeters and outside temp! Super comfortable seats with for real room for 6 adults! Love the auto climate control too! The 302 gets it around okay and mileage is pretty good.
A little more torque would be nice. I would like a bit more tightness in the supension during turns in and out of parking lots but I can tweak that. Some adjustable lumbar support, comes as an option would have been a nice standard feature.
