I bought my millenia used, with just under 100k miles on it. I have had it for almost 10 years and I can honestly say it is the best car I have ever owned, and the one I have loved most. I have only had to replace the timing belt/water pump and a few hoses and that is it. this car is So fun to drive and I have driven it hard, in the city daily, with a lot of stop and go. It developed a oil leak a few days ago, and I drove it anyway, stupidly, but I had no choice and it ran dry and caused severe damage to the radiator and hoses. it will not be worth it to fix, as I cant be assured the engine hasn't suffered damage as well. I am so sad to let this car go.

This is a great car to drive. Very quiet Bose sound and supercharged. Just hope you don't have to fix it. Waterpump and timing belt cost 1800.00 vacuum leaks $200. Used tensioner for AC Belt 175.00 Nice to drive just be prepared to crack that wallet open when it needs fixing

I bought this car with 76k miles from
a private auction so had no knowledge
of previous owner. Right after I had
to Redo the transmission and timing
belt. Since then, this car is awesome.
I nickname it "Old Faithful" because
it has been very reliable for my
family and is a awesome car to drive
that still looks great. I love this

Miller cycle engine of this car is
world class, puts out more horsepower
per liter than a Corvette engine.
Engine never seems to be straining or
overly loud under strong acceleration.
Bought car used for less than 9K. Came
with every option available. Handling
and brakes are very good. The only
weak spot is the automatic transmission
which shifts rough under hard
acceleration. No trouble with the car
that I could not fix myself in 15
minutes. Biggest disappointment, Ford
no longer makes this engine.
