Luxury, speed, looks, like a beautiful woman
It needed a new alternator replaced at 102,500 miles.
New radiator at 103,000.
New hood (my fault).
New fender (my fault also).
New air bags (previous owners fault).
A garbage company dropped a 2 ton garbage dumpster on the hood of this car.
This car is truly amazing... for the price I paid for it and for the performance you get, you can't beat it at all. If there was one word to sum up this car, it would probably be SPORTY.. it's not blistering fast like some Ford Thunderbird SUPER COUPES I've drove.. but it is still pretty peppy... I've raced Camaro's, Mustang's, Crown Vic's,...etc. I've never beat a Camaro, but I have beaten Mustangs and Crown Vics.
Ford made a big mistake by limiting the top speed of this car at 105. I find that after doing 105 for about 3 minutes, the computer gives up and lets you keep accelerating up to about 115, where it stops letting you accelerate any more.
Had Ford given this car more than 210 horses, it definitely could've and would've been a Mustang beater... not fast, but not slow.. over the V6 you definitely cannot beat the performance.. Cougars please, no competition.
After owning this car for a year now, I would definitely buy another... I'm questioning on buying a body upgrade, but I am not aware of any body panels I can upgrade. If you have any information please tell me... thank you for reading this.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
