I bought this car with 37,000 miles on it (it simply wasn't driven much). Lots of power, but at the expense of fuel efficiency (18 mpg on a good week, with 89 fuel @ $2.40/gal = pricey). I hope Ford found out how to make interior door panels that don't peel off, because every Ford/Merc I've been in has had this problem. Also, the A/C knob tends to slip off even when gently pulled. But on the bright side, the car is VERY reliable, powerful, and fun to drive.
Powerful engine, roomy interior and trunk, dual airbags, realiable
Pitfalls include mediocre fuel economy (though it's OK for a V-8), and the quality of the interior materials
