"Best car I've ever owned.. I hauled 1,000 LBS of feed in the back once a week, sure it squats a little but it still drives like there is nothing back there. I have never had any problems with it (besides normal car maintenance) it is Eddie bower 4 door so it seats 5 people. It runs still like brand new even at 311,000 miles. I use it twice a day everyday and It gets used and ran hard time to time but it stills starts up and runs like i just got it straight off of the line.. I prefer this car over any car.. Ford always makes the best.."
Cons: "Never let it overheat, the heads WILL crack."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Dependable, 17 MPH w/AC running, only repair I have had to do
(other than normal maintenance) is change the front bushings. the one on the right is bad for getting hot from the Exhaust, but this is fixed in the replacement kit.I own a 2000, but prefer my 1992."
"I am the second owner and bought it in 2010 at 105,000 miles.
Since then, I have replaced a high output alternator and battery (Premium sound requires a better alternator). Some maintenance like oil changes are done at a regular basis. The engine was leaking oil somewhere so I cut down the frequent oil changes from every 3 mo/3000 mi to 5 mo/5000 mi. with the high mileage oil and filters. After that, the engine would leak less. It runs great in winter time than in summer. Everyone seems crawling on the road."
"We bought it used in 1997. Motor is as sound as when we got it. never had exhaust replaced or repaired and still quiet. Replaced one freeze plug. A/C quit about 8 years ago. Window motors have failed except for one. Remotes still work. If I had the money I would get a brand new one tomorrow and drive it twenty years! Transmission has never had any repairs, just service."
