Best car I've ever owned... :-)


At about 28k the brake light kept blinking on and off, but was resolved by a non-ford mechanic in less than 10 minutes!

General Comments:

Totally kicks ass... pulls away quicker than anything I've ever driven. Its comfortable and other than the usual maintainence nothing has failed or gone wrong! Only comment would be the cost of fuel, which is by no means unexpected with an SUV with a V6 3.0L engine... it makes up for this in comfort by far.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
