A masterpiece... The best thing ever done by Ford.


I have to replace the air suspension bags.

My electrical system has some faults and I expect a failure soon.

I had the alternator replaced at 45.000 miles.

My all exhausting system is wrecked up and I can't find a dealer to fix it with the original parts here in Romania.

High gas consumption.

General Comments:

This is one of the best cars I ever drive... The performance is way better than (most) of the BMW and Benz, considering that is an 1989 model.

The front side is very roomy.

I run the engine at 6.000 RPM and get to over 200 km/h on highways in no-time. Is a true muscle car, and, considering to the cost, I would recomend it to all horse-power freaks!

The problem is that an American car is very very very expensive to maintain here in Romania, considering that here is only one dealer and it's not even a Lincoln dealer.. Is a Ford dealer..

Overall, I consider this car a masterpiece.. Great work by Ford.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I bought my car from my neighbor and I love it is always fun to drive and it has lots of power for my first car.

I have had to replace the air compressor once and I havn't had a problem with the electrical yet.

I love the stock JBL sound system that came with it and its awsome.
