"This has been the best car I have ever owned. It had 15 miles on when we purchased it in April 2004 and it has never given me any trouble. We have had routine maintenance performed on it -- that's it. It is a poster car for Ford Motor Company."
Cons: "Door Ajar sensors all failed, had to be replaced"

"Owned this vehicle since 2007; always serviced on time; have only had to replace a few seals and those darned "door ajar" sensors. 243,000 miles and it doesn't burn a drop of oil between changes; runs like a top; 16 to 17 mpg in town, 20 to 21 mpg on the road. This Eddie Bauer model has been a joy to own. Plan to buy a newer model early next year."
"I have owned this car for 12 years. I have never encountered a single problem with the engine, mechanics, or overall functioning of the vehicle. It is a beautiful pearl white, has a tan leather interior, and a sunroof. I have never missed an oil change or tire rotation. The engine is in mint condition. The vehicle has never been wrecked. It has been a wonderful car!"
"Last one traded in with 218,000 miles of mountain driving. Reliable, good handling, but rough ride on bumpy pavement or off-road. Nice interior features and plenty of cargo space and back seat room for passengers. Not the best gas mileage but it is a V-8."
