"I bought this car from my good friends last winter right before the weather got really bad. At the time I was walking every day to my job and getting this car was a life saver. This car has been through many harsh winters and has never had any problems. With only 87,500 miles this car has a long life ahead of it. It has a new battery, starter, and brake pads/rotors all replaced this last year with paperwork to prove it. It also has front tires that are 3 months old with a 40,000 mile warranty! It runs strong, especially on the freeway. Just drove to Cleveland and back! Please call/text if interested."

"completely reliable, gas wasn't too touchy, braked like a charm, a great first car for someone going off to college (large trunk and large backseat). stereo system is AMAZING! the only reason i would sell this car is for one with less miles. 400 miles on full tank!"

Pros: "costed $2500 to buy and ran for 4 mo. w/o repair"

Cons: "spent over $2600 in repairs need 2k more at least"

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

"car is worth more in parts than as a running machine at 98,000 miles... ive never owned a car that needed transmission before 100k miles... to pass emisions test [ie. no service engine soon lights or codes] the dealership had to take the car immediately to emisions for me, and the check engine light came on 4 days [and over $1600] later... this is probably the last ford manufactured vehicle i will ever own"

"My parents bought this car from my dad's company, was a fleet car, at about 40,000 miles. My mom drove it for a few years and then I got it when I turned 16 with about 100,000 miles in 2006. Now it has a little over 230,000 (in 2014) and is still running great. This car has been super reliable, only needing minor repairs throughout the years. Never once had a problem with it starting. I always joke that this car is a tank, coming out with only minor scratches after all I put it through is a miracle! I just got a new car...2006 Ford Taurus...because I wanted something new but very similiar. I will never get anything else...especially after I have seen what my friends and family have had to go through with other vehicles."
