A comfortable, nice car to drive, but too costly to maintain
The head gasket blew at 230,000 km. I decided to replace the entire engine instead of monkey around with the cylinder heads. The re-manufactured engine I am installing should finally make the car run correctly for once.
The transmission was cooked at 200,000km which I have replaced also with a re-manufactured one.
The car is nice to drive (when it runs) and is very roomy and comfortable. I have always owned Fords and am inclined to continue buying Fords, however my company vehicle is a Chevy and I have not had any problems with it. Probably will try Chevy next time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
