Don't remember the exact mileage, but a couple of the power window switches failed.
This is a good car for what it is. A 4 cylinder front wheel drive. I know Ford had a bad run of making some poor cars a few years prior like the Taurus, and Escort, and Contours. They seemed to have a lot of problems; so I have been told from people who have owned them.
My grandfather bought me this car brand new, and now he's passed on. One of the reasons I'm holding onto it is sentimental value cause of him. Also it gets good gas mileage. I also have a 2005 Dodge 3500 diesel pickup. This is like my economy ride.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
