Pros: "Transmission has lasted longer for us than most"

Cons: "Everything. Literally Everything."

"If I could give this car 0 on everything I still wouldn't be happy. The transmission is slipping; I'm trying to sell it before it goes out. It's unreliable, the recall didn't fix anything. The radio stopped working a year after we bought it and only flashed like it was loading. The A/C and heat in the back of the car doesn't work and flow continuously. There's a reason Ford stopped making this car. I'm never buying another Ford again."

"I bought this car from a dealer last year. In this year the trunk handle came out in my hand out of the blue, the right side has some sort of electrical problem, slowly everything stopped working the auto door the right signal light on the mirror the window, etc. The torque converter, the 02 sensor, had to be replaced the car shakes while warming up like its gonna blow, had to replace the intake manifold, alternator 2x, and the list goes on and on. Horrible car I had a Honda Odyssey with more miles and never had a problem until someone hit me from behind and totaled it."

"We drove this car on a recent long trip, (Houston, TX) and back. There was no trouble and rode nice. Mileage was about 19.1 and it didn't use any oil. Was comfortable and roomy. The A.C. needs a new compressor, per Capital Electric Auto Repair shop in Wichita, KS"

"I purchased this car used from the dealer with 75k miles. After only 3k, I've spent around 3k on many various repairs. Rear A/C, power steering, power doors, torque converter, coil packs....the list goes on. Our last villager from Mercury was a tank, not this one!"
