Fast, but expensive to keep
Entire dash stop working when traveling in south of france (the fuse box melted)
Very nice car to drive, but I had such a bad experience with mine I will never buy one again.
The car was overheating when I bought it and ford was totally unable to fix it.
A friend mechanic find the blockage and replace fan+fan belt+water pipe etc.
The PAS died 3 month later and on holiday in the south of France the entire electrics died (no speedo no light no electric window.. no nothing)
It took 2 weeks for to guy in France to fix it. the connection in the fuse boxes had melted.
So why did I keep repairing it??
Well, the drive was unbelievable, at 140 the car was still sucking the road, extremely comfortable (like a big Mercedes) and the 3 litre engine was nice and smooth and when needed very fast.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
