We purchased this car used, with 37,000 kms on it. It had a couple of recalls, but aside from the heat and a/c, everything has performed beyond what you would normally expect of a Ford. It died today. It has over 300,000 kms on it, and until the past few months, has not needed anything other than maintenance and other upkeep you would need on any car at some point. This includes brakes, wheel bearings and hoses. The a/c didn't last long and after us driving it for 10 years, the heat wasn't fantastic either, but for the mileage we got from it, and the price we paid, we consider ourselves very lucky and hope to have the same quality with our next car.
