I have an '01 zetech sedan... Tends to idle rough sometimes.. ESP in VERY hot weather.. Other than that no problems.... Bought it 31-oct-2011 with 154.795 from a ford dealer in the twin cities was a one owner car since brand new was traded in for a 2011 fiesta by the previous owner... lol

I now have 172,695 on it.
