Pextor... the proverbial Ferengi of autos...
Not sure what ford was thinking with the probe replacing the mustang. I get the FWD part and all. But it would have never lived up the the mustang even if it was RWD.The ford probe was going to be the replacement for the mustang but mustang fans frowned upon those shenanigans. The mustang stayed rear wheel drive.
Looking at some rust pretty early on with my 16 ST, not so sure. They cut some corners when it came to paint. There are also some absolutely dumb design decisions, like leaving a literal shelf for road salt and water to sit and fester on, in the rear wheel wells. At some point I'll be pulling apart the rear paneling to see if they made the same "mistakes" back there, that they did with the 'scort. If so, I'll be dropping the rear strut towers and applying a crapload of gasket sealer on top of them, before immediately reinstalling, as preventative.That fiesta should last you a long time.
