I have put 194,000 miles on so far and have had no maintenance issues thus far. Change the oil every 3,500, that's it. Am still averaging 35.4 MPG. This has been a great can and expect to get 300,000 miles out of it easy.
This car was purchased new and we now have 117k miles on it and have never done anything to it except the 100k mile tune up. It has been well worth the purchase price and if Ford still made them we would buy another one.
With the 5 speed tranny we get 35mpg. Love the keyless entry, great design for the year.
Less hassle to replace the factory radio which is built in with the heater control panel.
I've had this car for seven years and have only had to replace brakes and tires and a wiper blade now and then. It's a great car for girls because all of the fluid caps are have labels and the rear seats fold down so you can fit all of your shopping items in the car.
Fold down rear seats, gas mileage, easy to drive.
More leg room in the rear seat and more head room.
