We leased the STS after comparing it
to the following vehicles: Audi A6
4.2, BMW 540i, Lincoln LS V-8, and MB
E430. The STS offered more car for the
money in our opinion, and prefferred
its ride quality and exterior styling.
Our lease is over and our experience
was a pleasant one. The car was a
great highway cruiser, it handled
well, had decent power, and the ride
is amazingly smooth. Reliability was
fair, the car needed a few trips to
the dealer for minor warranty stuff.
Overall, the car was solid.
Super ride, smooth and sweet sounding
Northstar V-8, classic styling. Killer
Bose 4.0 stereo. There are also not
many other 300hp cars out there that
run on regular fuel. Great winter
Switch to RWD with more power and a
5spd auto. More rear seat room. Most
of these concerns will be addressed
with the upcoming '05 model.
