"I am not a Ford fan, specifically because I had owned 2 Tauras Wagons in the 1990's, and there was always brake problems and the second one had the transmission start slipping. I owned a Windstar van and it was OK, but nothing great. I absolutely did not want a Ford, until I saw this car. The options were awesome, it looked good, and ran really really nice. I was talked into buying it, and a month later, I still love it! It has been one of the nicest cars I have owned. I hope it continues to be this great!!"
