I'm surprised it don't give the axle ratio. It does for a lot of other vehicles. Found out my Explorer has 4.10s.

Not an entirely accurate database, saw the same error your did regarding climate control. My car came with SATC, that page says it came with manual climate control. Highly doubtful one of the previous owners converted it!

Both of mine say manual, yet both are SATC. One is listed with speed control while the other is not. It would appear that the details on the 95 are slightly less accurate than the 96 in my case.

To play devil's advocate the auto climate control in these cars were always classified by Ford as Semi-Automatic Temperature Control. It's possible they simply get classified by two choices in the database, auto/manual, and Semi got lumped in with the latter.

Ah. That would make sense.

I started to get excited when my summary listed "Rear Axle Limited Slip Diff", as I could have sworn mine was open. Maybe it just needs new clutch-packs...

Alas, the summary reads "Less Rear Axle Limited Slip Diff".

1996 Thunderbird LX (4.6), previous daily driver

1995 Mustang GT (5.0), daily driver
1995 GMC C2500 (5.7), alternate daily driver

Must be. If I plug in the Mark VIII it comes up as auto climate control.

However, the vehicle line also comes up as a "Freelander II"...

I agree as you do have to choose heat or AC manually. I will turn on and off to keep the correct temperature but you do have to set it to AC if you want it.
