I don't get a lot of chatter, but it definitely bogs out and is a real dog. Give it a little throttle from a steady cruising speed and the tach bumps up a bit, maybe a couple hundred RPM, then drops right back down. And the car doesn't really accelerate. Give it a little more throttle and you can watch the same thing happen. Tach bumps up a bit, drops back down, car doesn't really accelerate.

It's not the most gutless car I've ever driven... only because my wife once owned a CHEVETTE DIESEL.

And it wasn't like that when I bought it.

So why does Ford tell people that this is normal?
