Good car, but the problem with the manifold has caused me to look at other luxury cars.
The air suspension went out requiring replacement. The air suspension was replaced with the steel coil kit. It is far superior to the air suspension even when the car was new.
The plastic intake manifold cracked requiring an expensive repair job that cost $1,400.00. I have since filed charges against Ford Motor Company with the Texas State Attorney Generals Office and joined a class action lawsuit.
The car rides very comfortably with the new steel coil suspension I had installed.
Very good fuel mileage for a car of this size and power.
Acceleration is good, but I would prefer about 40 more horsepower.
The leather is still is supple condition after 129,000 miles and the car still looks showroom new.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
