I have the XLT Sport V6 and am very happy with it. I think it's an attractive and sporty automobile, and was very affordable. The ride is nice, it's very peppy with lots of pick up. Plenty of room for my 3 kids and I and lots of room in the back for groceries, backpacks or strollers. It handles beautifully and is a lot of fun to drive. It had a lot of nice options as well.
I love the power features, the 6 CD changer (have to learn how to use it), the way the car automatically locks all the doors for me, and the grippy steering wheel. It has other great features like a great security system, and the interior light that turns off slowly after you leave.
I was disappointed to see those dangerous rocker-style power window switches. They are very dangerous should a child lean on them.
