I bought this car with 113,000 miles which is lower than any other car I have owned.
In it's defense, I bought it from an auction so who knows how it was taken care of.
But it ran great!
It was super fast.
Then things started breaking, exhaust, window switches, suspension, leaky valve covers.
I had a bad feeling but never wanted to sell it when the transmission decided to blow.
The first gear totally destroyed itself.
Will not own one of these again, going back to my mustangs which get 200,000 miles on them before they go out.
It was fast!
Loved the supercharger.
Babied it though and only could get 20 mpg.
Not a very fair review...this car has a very good standing...leaking valve covers , exhaust, suspension, and the other things you mentioned are common sense maintenance that all makes have....I have had my share of Ford problems transmission especially . its buyer beware
