Have had the vehicle just over a year. Like the space, styling, ride, color (redfire),and handling. Feels great to drive. But a lot of cheap plastic. Unprotected metal seat glides have sharp edges. Seatbelt detectors balatantly visible. From day 1 it has drifted/pulled to the left. Taken in numerous times, told that's just the way it is. Helicopter effect takes some getting used to even with front windows open. Deep console is OK but you need to take everything out to get to the lower layer. Cloth seats seem "utilitarian", like my old cheap truck. Hate dark interiors so I like the stone color. Lincoln's very is overkill. Wonder what a Mercury version would have been like.
Ride height, visibility, and looks. At a time when so many vehicles look alike, at least you know what it is coming and going. (Although new 3bar grille on its Fusion and Taurus' do look alike. Great leg room front and back. (Who needs a 3rd row of seats?)
The old thin green letters and numbers on radio/clock/dials are hard to read in sunlight. Should have bluish like other new Fords and Chevys. Wish rear seats folded completly flat. Better gas mileage! Not near estimated. Better dealer followup and knowledge of the vehicle. Cargo net would be nice.
