    Sleeper — This thing was a sleeper. Overall performance was amazing the shear power was terrifying at the beginning. 4 door car that was modified to have the power to catch criminals. I wish i still had the thing. Needed racing breaks to stop it.

    Pros: Had the power top speed of 144 mph. Wide tires All wheel drive

    Cons: fuel mileage 22 at best

    Recommended — Impressed with how reliable this car has been, I have gone through 2 starters (lots of starts and stops when the car was first purchased, an AC condenser, rack and pinion, 2 batteries, 2 sets of tires and 2 sets of brakes. Car starts first shot every time.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Extremely reliable

    Cons: Air Conditioning seems adequate on extreme heat days

    Impressive — Even though my children have out grown the car it is overall the best car I have ever had. the color is different and that is what made me purchase the car in the first place ovrall if I was an average female with an average family I would say this car life span for me is forever.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It saves me allot on gas and it is very roomy; 6 feet tall.

    Decent Family Car. — Looks good, has a nice comfortable ride, and is pleasant to drive. Did not like how the ball joints went out before the car had 100,000 miles, or how the gem module needed to be replaced. Some of these repairs are expensive.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Good, solid family car.

    Cons: Needs regular repairs that can be costly.

    Everyday Driver — Cheap and easy to maintain car. It is large and comfortable, but not for the one who enjoy driving. It is too soft and the rear brakes are drums instead of discs. Not too good on a fuel economy. Everyday driver.

    Pros: cheap

    Cons: cheap

    Great Car — Performance- The car had good acceleration for a lower end car enough power from the 3.0 doch engine that ford also uses in the ford ranger not sporty braking is fine great as long as you keep up the maintenance handling is very responsive every single time Build Quality- it is very quiet smooth and i do not see any foreseeable maintenance beside the regular maintenance Appearance- interior leather is nice and wood trim comfortable and the exterior styling is fine for a basic model car Cost of ownership- gas mileage is fine highway i was getting 27 at 85 with the cruise on the interstate and 32 doing 65 on a normal highway and in town about 20-22 depending on how you drive so pretty good Fun Factor- only fun factor i could think about the car is the mach stereo system with 6 cd changer and taking it on long road trips because it is very smooth and worry free driving on the road

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great car

    Cons: nothing really i bought it has a four door car which it is great at what it is made for
