Suckin Gas And Haulin Ass! — Has plenty of room for myself and 4 friends comfortably with the power of a sports car. All wheel drive so its virtually impossible to lose traction on wet pavement. All around darn good american made ford products for life!

Hated It But Got Me Around — slow,brakes suck, handles like a box, needed a few repairs mostly from beating the hell out of it, front end squeaks from a jumpin incident, interior pretty simple and plane nothing special exterior looks like a box, expensive to maintain, very bad gas mileage, not a very fun car

I Love It — i love the handeling, ride, and the seats are confortable, not to mention the trunck leaves alot of room even with two 12 inch subs in the back, oh and the rear seat folding down really helps to but really big objects in

Pros

powerful, fun to drive

Cons

Gas and tiping

25

Awesome — Terrible rear suspension. Ford only put in 1 rear leaf spring in some models causing the rear to sag. 4 abs sensors lead to rediculous lights on the dash and a pulsing in the pedal. Amazing off-road and in the snow. Sounds Great and Can take a beating. Lives up to its name Built Ford Tough.

Good First Car — It was easy to handle and not too slow but not very much room. It required maintenance often but maybe because it was used. Pretty cheap to own and maintain. It was fun to drive and looked nice with a lot of options for appearance.
