Pros: "With 3 row seat, very good for 6 person family."

Cons: "3.8 engine not reliable."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 5

"3.8 Engine NOT as reliable as the 3.0. Known head gasket problems, also automatic transmission known to be weak, although we have had no problems. Head gasket blown at approximately 49,000 miles. Car was still under warranty; dealer claimed engine was blown and claimed to have put in a new long block. I am sure they only put a new head gasket in and 'charged' Ford for the long block. On replacing gasket, two wires were pinched between block and head which then could not be read with computer scanner. By this time car was out of warranty and dealer refused to continue finding problem. After hiring a retired Ford mechanic, seven computer modules, he relented to my request and removed head, finding problem with shorted wires. Except for head gasket, car was good. Would never deal with this Ford dealership again, and probably never buy another Ford, as Ford would do nothing to support claim."

Pros: "Comfortable to drive and ride. Comfortable."

Cons: "Wish it would last forever!"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"This is by far the most comfortable ride I have ever had. Many trips to & from TN, Lots of Soccer Games all over the state of Florida. Very functional as a family vehicle (I have 4 grandchildren) as well as a Sturdy Vehicle. (We hauled lots of lumber and other home improvement products). Unfortunately, she is on her final leg. Years of getting our family from point A to B and back again have finally taken its toll. I would love to find another "Granny Wagon" in excellent condition for a fair price. Funny thing is that I didn't want this vehicle. I was in desperate need of a vehicle and my pastor's mom had this for sale and I could make payments. I am SO GLAD I didn't let my stubbornness win this one. I have never been so pleased with a car. Great Reliable and Great Comfortable Seating and ride."

Good reliable car as of 07/20/14

"Dependable utilitarian car provided you maintain it. I have spent over $2300 in parts alone over the past 2 years. Now I am satisfied it will continue to be reliable for another 5 years. Secret to any dependable auto is maintenance. Have used synthetic motor oil and serviced the transmission with synthetic ATF better than Ford spec. NO engine or transmission problems. A/C is the coldest of any car I've owned any yet it uses 134a Freon!"
