My husband and I just bought one tonight. Traded in our beloved Escape. So far I am happy, the kids like it (well, my son thinks we should have went for a Mustang GT--oh well). Affordably priced and there was a $1000 rebate on it. Fine family car, drives nice. It probably wont turn any heads but that is not what I am interested in anyway. If it gets me to ballgames and gymnastics meets safely then I am 100% satisfied.
Kids like the middle of the back seat that folds down to reveal cup holders. LOL Also, I like that there are 3 shoulder seat belts in the back, much safer than a lap belt.
Pin striping? It is a little plain. I don't like that it locks automatically while I am driving, but I was told by salesman that I can turn that off?
