I got this car from my mother when I
was in a bit of a tight spot for
transportation. Now I know why she
wanted to get rid of it. V6 5speed
was fun to drive and I nearly drove
the engine right out of it.
Fortunately I had it in for new front
stuts and they found that the engine
was missing 5 of the 8 mounting
bolts. Over the ensuing months it
lost the alternator, water pump, wheel
bearings, and the check engine light
keeps comming on (which leaves my
mechanic at a loss.)
V6 engine is smooth and strong.
5 speed transmision shifts like a Mack
truck. 14" wheels can not keep up
with the weight and handling of the
Excellent car. Had it from 60,000
miles. Now it has 85,000 miles on it.
Never had any kind of mechanical
problem. I just made sure all the
required maintenance is done as per
the owners manual and oil changed
every 3000 miles.
I Got this Car as a Replacement to
another thinking that Sence I got Sure
a Great deal oin it I would keep it
untill I found something that would be
Better. But now I Would never Give it
up. I love it way too Much !!!!
This is the first car I have kept over 6
yrs. It is the most reliable car I have
ever had. Only a few minor repairs over
the last 8 yrs. It is a great car to
take on a trip, great fuel economy. Easy
and fun to drive. I love Ford products
since they are built to last.
