Overall great truck, a few quirks, but overall very good car to own
After a year and a half, the Alternator went.
Shortly after, the front door locks won't work properly (From abuse from little kids, now resolved)
At 33,000 miles, the continental tires (almost bald) were replaced with Michelin LTX M/S tires.
At 44,300 miles, the #7 cylinder ignition coil went
At 44,800 miles, #3 Cylinder Ignition coil went
At 45,100 miles, #4 Cylinder Ignition coil went
(First 2 were replaced by Ford, we replaced the other 6 at home, since the parts only cost $6 or so) Runs great now.
Rear Climate control system is acting up, the valve that controls the upper and lower vents is thumping, soon to be fixed.
Great SUV car, towed a 5000lb jeep 500 miles from upper maine to upstate New York, through mountains. (Granted, the tach hit 5000rpm while going up hills, but it handled it without a complaint or problem)
Handles VERY well on the road
Good acceleration and throttle response
Bulletproof Ford Engine (apart from ignition coils, cheap and easy to replace at home)
Gas mileage is OK, but not great. (highway, city sucks)
Brakes very well
Turning Radius is FANTASTIC for such a big car
It's a Ford. Nuff said.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
