Solid performing and fun to drive
O2 sensor at 150k.
Front brake pads at 150k.
Gas filler tube gasket - from a sloppy pipe job?
This is a well built car and the 4.6L is a solid engine. It drives and handles very well.
Running costs are a little higher than we expected. We were expecting to squeeze 25 MPG at Oregon highway speeds (55mph), but the best we have achieved is 23 MPG.
Comfort of the front seats could be improved if the head rest were further forward, but the leather has held up pretty well. We have seat covers on it now.
The previous owner had straight pipes installed from the catalytic converters back, without any mufflers. It sounds great, but the idiots damaged the gas tank filler tube in the process, and that was the first thing we had to fix.
It set a engine code when one of the O2 sensors failed. C'mon Ford! Really? You need FOUR oxygen sensors for one engine? There are two before and two after the catalytic converters, but Autozone's free scan identified the offending sensor, and $50 later we were engine code free again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
