great car

this car is an older car, but it has served me well. there are a few repairs needed, that I am not surprised by I may need to spend some money on it, now, but it is worth it. I would have to spend at least 8K to get something as good for a replacement.

has been a very good car for me

nice car. still, even if it is an older car. some times with an older car you have to shop around for some one who will work on it, and be honest with me on needed and not needed repairs. I have driven this car a few miles and it still runs good.

The 15 year old Ford is still showing plenty of signs of life

I used the following techniques to prolong the life of the Ford, but these ideas will work for ANY car. Most are just plain common sense. 1. Regular maintenance. In addition to taking the vehicle to a service dealer periodically, regularly check the tire pressure and oil level. You don't need to be an expert to do that. 2. When approaching a yellow light, take your foot off the accelerator and let the vehicle coast in. This reduces stress on both the engine and the brakes. The worst thing you can do is accelerate towards a yellow light, and then jam on the brakes when the light turns red.. 3. Your driving pattern will also affect how long the vehicle will last. Short trips will stress the engine more than long ones. The reason for that is that for a short trip, carbon deposits will build up inside the pistons, but the car won't be running long enough to burn them off. A long trip, on the other hand, will enable the engine to heat up enough to burn off the carbon deposits. So try to collapse as many short trips into one as you can. 4. I used these techniques to drive my previous car. It lasted for 23 years.

Great local get around car

We bought this car for our 17 year old son as the "first" car. It is good for the around town driving he has to do. The 4 cylinder is good on gas for the size of the tank. We put a few replacement parts that cost a bit, but since we bought it used we really couldn't be sure of the previous owners maintenance and it was 15 years old. It is a coupe code for small interior, low to the ground and wants to be a sports car. :-) He doesn't do a lot of highway driving. It has decent pick up but the older 4 cylinder doesn't have ability to really run with a brand new Lexus or just newer cars. He likes it and I am no longer taxi service.
