Still a pos
it has the 2.5 5cyl in it. Once the warranty was expired I just put some penzoil it in. I now went with the mobil 1. The penzoil came out really nasty after I changed it.

The 2.5 is pretty quick. I was in doubt when they said 5cyl. I guess from what I was told since you can only get a turbo on a diesel now. They wanted something quick like a turbocharged car.

Only thing I like about the car is the transmission. It has the triptronic ( i think thats what it's called) Where you can choose auto or manual.

I bring it to Ford and i tell them to change my oil. So i'll say motorcraft.

I've been seeing a lot of members using synthetic here, thinking about joining them.

I've been using Motorcraft 5-30w sythetic blend with Motorcraft filter... I'm thinkiing of going to full sythetic. But, make sure you use a GOOD filter.
