I really want the MFT but to save some costs I think I could opt for an aftermarket dash kit and nav if price was worth it. What do you guys think with it being a rental? I know it would have the 7 year 100K power train and another 12 months 12K miles bumper to bumper. I also know it was probably driven really hard. Just want led opinions. Thanks

This was supposed to be under the general post section please move if you can.
My last car was a rental...I didn't do the diligent research beforehand. Never again! The engine was solid, but it had electrical gremlins from the time the warranty ran out. The transmission started clunking around 150,000 miles, and I traded it soon after for the Focus.
