This is one of the best cars I have owned. The ride is great and even in city traffic it is good to drive. The only down fall is the air conditioning isn't as good as the old freon systems and in the south you need great air. Overall a great car.
Intermittently some accessories are staying on after the keys are removed from the vehicle running the battery dead over night. Can't always remember to shut everything off. BIG Problem. We can't rely on it! Very disappointed. Great vehicle other than that. Ford dealership cannot find a problem. So far 4 separate instances with a brand new battery.
Size, towing capacity, comfort.
Need a longer standard warranty. 3yr/36,000 says "we know it's going to tear up and we're not going to stand behind it." Need more reliable electrical system.
Have required repeated repairs, each at a very high price. Repairs include rear oil seal 3 times, transmisssion seal, air pump, shocks and electic control for air shocks, brake cable, tie rod ends, sun roof seal and motor, and on and on. Most recent was anti-lock brake contol and pump for $1,300. This is the worst vehicle I have ever owned, compounded by Ford's outrageous repair costs. I will never own another Ford.
Comfortable, excellent towing.
Reliability. It is bad enough that everything breaks, but Ford should be embarrassed by their outrageous prices for parts and repairs. Insult on top of Injury.
