I work for Ford and I drive a Ford. I really love this SUV. Traded in an Escape, which I loved as well. The interior is wonderful. Doesn't get good gas mileage but then what can you expect with a large SUV. It handles great, has many options. The car handles well, has sufficient power. The stereo system could be a lot better. The DVD is great. I really like the seats that fold down automatically. Not enough room in the back for cargo when all the seats are up.
The interior is my favorite. It's all black with chrome and wood. LOVE IT. I also love the heated seats and the rear seats that fold down.
Sometimes the transmission cannot keep up with the car. There needs to be more room in the back when all the seats are up. Stereo system is a little weak.
