Don't let the ride and comfort fool you. Buyer beware!
Front struts were replaced upon purchase.
Front and rear brakes replaced at the Ford dealer. New brakes make horrible squeaking noise.
Starter went out at 95000.
Stalled as I was pulling out of a parking lot with my wife and 3 children. Fortunately, the on coming car stalled too, avoiding a potential accident. 3 sensors were replaced to the tune of $350.00.
Transmission hesitates and the engine seems to surge when accelerating.
Pulls to the right (even after Ford dealer aligned it).
I fell in love with the ride and comfort. For a car of its age, it looks nice. Unfortunately, the love affair ends with its looks.
The car is constantly falling apart. My right turn-signal works only when it wants to.
I have only had the car four months, and I have no trust in it. I ignored people warning me not to purchase it, but I didn't listen. Do not make the same mistake I did. Look for a Toyota or Honda. They may be more expensive up front, but are well worth the extra dough.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
