2012 Ford Focus ElectricStephen Parks - Oxnard, CA03/24/2016
Company that had the car before us didn't do any of the recalls, Ford had the car for 3 months replacing everything due to failure to turn on! Really, it is fairly simple, battery, charger and electric motors... if the battery has power, the car should drive, instead it won't give you a reason, it just won't turn on or even respond to unlock/lock commands. Works better after all the stuff was replaced, but still updates once in a while and when it does, you can't drive for 1 hour!
It's Really a Fun Car!
2013 Ford EscapePat McConnell - Hendersonville, TN06/16/2016
Fun to drive...good mileage (27mpg, city+hwy)...very nice amenities (I have the SEL model). I'm very surprised at the power for this 1.5 liter engine, no regrets there. The SYNC system is really fun, and the auto park feature amazing, actually, I was afraid to try it at first, but it is quite unique. When the message screen says "put in reverse and take hands off the wheel", it got my attention!
Made in the South, a groundbreaking series classic
1998 Ford ExplorerMarlette Torras - Polson, MT09/29/2015
Buyers of older used vehicles have an important dillema to solve first: how can they expect to deal with the expense and inconvenience of inevitable repairs? In the seminal series of the Ford Explorer, transformational electronics were added about 1996, with a diagnostic display from a trip computer. This gave the driver an advantage of calculating their mileage and MPG, checking tire pressure , etc.. All the new owner has to do is look at the mileage and then the milestone chart for maintenance, and calculate the risks. Everything still works in my vehicle, but I have put only one major ($550.00) and one minor repair on it in a year.
