No, they're a bit of a joke around here really. Gotta give the owner props, it's obviously been off pavement which is more than can be said for 90% of the SUVs and 4x4 trucks around here and for 1/10 the price.

It even has an EcoBoost AWD badge on the trunk lid.

they are like mustangs in you can get in over your head on a merely wet road.

my 1994 thunderbird was abysmal as well.. but quite fun with the added supercharger on the 4.6

Probably more practical than the Crown Vics, Town Cars, and Grand Marquis that I've seen turned into "donks"

Whahhh? I found mine very controllable in low traction environments. I had a 93 p71. Not my idea of a great car, but it beat walking.

Just replace the transmission every 60k miles or so proactively and they're not too bad, lol!

Strange, we've got a 96' Crown Vic with the original transmission and engine with 350,000 miles. We're retiring the car this summer due to extreme rust on the car/frame.
