I got this car from my mother with 140k as a hand me down. so I like say before I get into detail that my mother beats the crap out of cars. So now for my review. I have blown the stock head gasket on my car twice so I have since gotten some aftermarket heavy duty gaskets, new brake, exhaust, cooling, a/c, aftermarket stereo system, suspension, fuel injection system. Rebuilt 3.8 engine. Rebuilt transmission w/ upgrades for a total of about 10 grand. Since upgrades I've had a one slight problem with the temp gauge fluctuating but thats due to the fact thats its a 3.8 on a 3.0 cooling system (plans for aftermarket fan upgrade in works) other then that I have no more problems after 20,000 miles.

After owning this car for just over 4 years, I can say that it really is a winner. My secret was to buy if from a friend who maintained it superbly. She even had the door chime fixed when it went out! It has been very reliable, comfortable, and safe.

I should have known not to buy the car when I saw it being fixed at the dealership. All these brand new things they put in the car, and some of them even caused MORE problems. I was back at the dealership 5 days into owning it because the belt broke (and 3 more times broke since then). I have replaced this and that, and things keep going.What a frustrating vehicle to own. stablizer bar has broken twice, muffler - gone, brakes need fixing constantly, shocks and struts, gone. you name it, its broken. right down to the spring to open the trunk. broken. oh, and the gas milage is a joke.

Pretty decent car, problems with reliability though. Ford really needs to improve their transmissions. It was rebuilt by previous owner at about 75 K miles, I got it at 100K and within a month it needed to be rebuilt again. Expensive too, they wanted $1500 BASE to fix it. I got rid of it while I could. Don't bother buying it if it has very many miles on it.

I bought a car in 2000. It was only
worth 3-4000, on the books. I have paid
11,700.00 so far to keep up the car.
Mounts fall off, gase is guzzled down
like a drink of water, electrical
things do not work, just one problem

After the transmission gave out at just
100,000 miles and the head gasket blew
for the THIRD TIME, I'm finished. I
can't even get anybody to buy this
thing, and I wouldn't sell it to them
anyway. The best use for this thing is
to let it sit in the barn for the dogs
to sleep in.
