Designed to fail

ReviewHad this one for a few years. Too bad I
was not looking through the reviews. It
was fun while under warranty. Was well
taken care of, right by the book. Have
3.8l engine. At 68K engine light went
off. Took to the dealer. Dealer said
that a tunup is needed. Manufacturer
said at 100k. Dealer replaced spark
plugs etc. Light went off. At 70 K
sprung a leak somwhere between heater
core and the back of the engine $2k
repair(needed to take half the car
apart). At 73K engine knocking, water
in the oil. Estimate $2.8k to replace
the engine. Thanks Ford. That is the
last Ford made car my family bought in
about 3 generations and hopefully more.
Best FeaturesEngine power.
Worst FeaturesQuality, Longevity of life, Design to make car last beyond 60K
