My first new car in many years. Ford has raised the bar. This big safe car does many things well. It is smooth and quiet, with good acceleration. I wish it had a telescoping wheel, because at 6' 4", I can move the seat back so far that the steering wheel is almost out of reach. I like the ease of folding the back seats down. It has a ton of room with them folded (not a minivan though) I added a back-up camera/gps system to my SE and it really helps backing up. Tall seats hold you in, make turning around to see difficult for me; comfortable though. Solid highway drive. Don't drive with windows open;overpressure will drive you nuts. Mileage c. 20 in town, 25 hwy. Not great, but pretty good.
Solid, safe feeling driving. Like on rails.Quiet, smooth, with good pickup.
Definitely needs a telescoping wheel. SE could be be "gussied up" inside- too plain. Mileage is always a suggested improvement. A light inside the console- too dark to see what's in there, especially since there are hookups for phone, ipods, coins.
