it is a beautiful looking car and has never gave any problems in the three years i"ve had it.
love the heated seats gas mileage and it lets me know right on time when it need oil change or anything else i don't have to worry about guessing or waiting on a red light to let me no it needs service it tells me specifically what needs to be serviced."
"This car is a GREAT value. Purchased in May, 2008, it continues to offer a wonderful experience including a smooth ride with good handling charachteristics.
I am no pro, but in my opinion, the fit and finish is much better than any of the 20 rental japanese/korean cars I have driven in the last 12 months.
The AWD has been fantastic in inclement weather. I added Michelin XiceIIs for winter driving as well, so This car really performs on snow and Ice.
Navi, and SYNC together in this package are nothing short of fantastic. Though I have never been a fan of built in GPS navigation, particularly DVD based solutions, This combination works very well together.
The cabin space is absolutely a dream, particularly the rear seat. It was comfortable with 5 good size guys and 5 sets of golf clubs in the trunk which is cavernous.
The rear seats fold down allowing you to haul up to 40 2x4x10s plus a ton of other stuff.
The 6 speed transmission is a little shiftier than I was hoping for, but I have averaged 23 miles per gallon over all.
The car now has 65k miles on it and I look forward to keeping it beyond my company's 100 K mileage limit.
There have been a couple minor electrical problems, but the Ford dealer was able to identify and correct them very quickly.
Too bad Mercury no longer offers this model, but you can bet I will look very hard at the Taurus - same platform, different badge.
Ford/Lincoln/Mercury has earned a couple of notches with this vehicle."
