Long-time Ford product enthusiast. My dad worked in Ford dealer service management as a career, some rubbed off on me. I've driven mostly old Fords over the years. I still have a 1972 Custom 500 Ranch Wagon (ex-USAF) I have three Panther platform cars. (1) 2004 P73 that I bought new in early 2005. (2) 2006 Mercury Grand Marquis LS. (3) 2009 P71. I've been retired for many years, but when I was working I just took the 04 to the local Ford dealer for routine maintenance. That's about all it's ever needed, nothing seems to break. The two cat converters were replaced under warranty due to supplier defect (TB campaign). I replaced the eng. temp. sending unit once. The brakes have been done once in 145K miles, battery has been replaced once. So it's been a pretty good car. I will mention the 06 Merc and the 09 P71 in subsequent posts.
