    Woo Hoo!! — This car has been a wonderful car. I am sure glad I chose the LX Model with 24 valve DOHC!! Stereo was nice until it was stolen.. Got it back with no Tires/Wheels and my Mach Stereo System stolen from it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Luv my car

    Cons: Someone stole it and stole the tires/wheels and all the Mach stereo equipment *Except for the cd changer.

    An Interesting Car With Great Handling And Good Utility. — It's a freaking Taurus. But with a V8 and excellent suspension. So, it's kind of a sleeper. Surprisingly it gets excellent MPG. If I keep my foot outta it, it will get 25mpg. I can't keep my foot outta it though.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: The handling and the way it sounds.

    Cons: Hard to keep running right.

    I Will Be Sad To See It Go. — We have had this car for 4 years, have replaced a lot of things over that time but it's been mostly minor things. Gets good gas mileage and is comfortable on long trips. Probably will be getting rid of it soon.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good on gas, comfortable

    Cons: Some say they have weak transmissions

    Pros: american made
