I bought this car from a private party when it
was 2 years old. It has been a wonderful car
to own and drive with the following
1) the painted bumpers mar easily, and it's
ugly to see the paint scratched off portions 2)
the cup holders are a joke; I've replaced them,
and they broke again very quickly 3) the a/c
doesn't turn off.....in fact there should be
climate control installed; but the heater is
excellant (guess they use it in sweden more
than the a/c?) 4) the leather seats crack, even
with my continual maintenance...so suspect
quality as being not so good.
The turn radius is amazing!
Performance, comfort and safety are excellant
however, and I find it easy to drive, turn, park,
etc for both local and long distance driving.
Would like to see more hp....from 180 to 250
would be nice; turbo even nicer
I average spending about $1500 a year for
maintenance (not including oil changes and
gas) Need the freeon changed every other
year as it leaks out.
Has Ford improved these problem areas?
