They don't make 'em like they used to!

Review
It's too bad we regulate fuel economy and won't tap into our own fuel resources to make gas cheaper. It has caused all these new cars to have overly fragile transmissions and week motors that fall apart. I purchased this car 9 years ago with 150k miles it now has 228k miles very reliable no major repairs except I did replace the heating box in the dash because it only blew hot air (a flap inside malfunctioned)$400. There were no check engine lights on until a couple 1000 miles ago the parking brake light came on not bad for a car pushing a quarter million miles. I'm returning a 07 Ford edge off lease with 38,000 miles feels like its shaking apart at 60 mph transmissions shot.
Favorite Features

Suggested Improvements
likes gas but when it was built gas was $1 a gallon now gas is tripled in cost thats not fords fault thats Washington's fault! Cars in the late 90's were built better than now because they had less restrictions go look at 05 06 07 reviews they are terrible.
