Fast enough to get you a hefty speeding ticket but not fast enough to outrun a police cruiser! This car is quite good if you take care of it. Yes it doesn't run like a $50000 luxury model but what did you expect? Good value for a large car. Ask around your town for opinions about local dealers, I've had good service where I've bought it but bad experiences with the ability of other dealerships to perform maintenance when I'm out of town,
Good capacity, comfortable, fast. 7 years old and still looks sporty. Getting more than 200~225 horsepower is a bit unnecessary unless you plan to race. Much, much better than previous Ford products I owned.
Like other reviewers I agree that the brake rotors need to be serviced frequently, road noise is louder than expected, and the paint gets chipped on the hood.
