Disappointing, may go back to Ford or an import after this
Typical maintenance that I don't fault a company for; stuff like brakes, exhaust, shocks etc., as long as they have an acceptable life span.
However our van has a MERE 110,000 kms on it in late 2012, and we are having trouble with the power steering, which works best if you give it gas when steering; don't bother trying to turn the wheel when it's parked.
The biggest annoyance I have at this point is electrical. At first my locks would constantly click when driving, so I figured out how to shut that off. One time I had all the lights on the dash and the cabin lights randomly going on and off, and now my wipers work when they feel like it. Starting to look like a bad computer...
No gasket or tranny problems yet; using Lucas oil for my trans fluid as an insurance policy.
It also idles strangely, and the air conditioning is very weak and has been recharged once already.
A reliable driver SO FAR.
I like the van's horsepower for being a 4 cylinder.
I think it looks nice; much better than newer square designs.
The big complaint is definitely electrical with these vans. Again, I stress it only has 110k on it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
