We were looking for a SUV that would give us good gas mileage and be high enough that my wife could see the traffic better. My wife is 5' and we were looking for a seat that would adjust high enough for her so that she could see. Plus we needed the lumbar support for both front seats. Ford is the only dealer that had it all. They surprised us also by giving us 0% financing for 5 years plus $1000 cash back. The whole experience was enjoyable, no pressure at all.
Gas mileage has been 25 -27 or more on the freeway. I was even getting up to 30 mpg at 65mph! The CVT transmission is smooth and the seats (leather) are very comfortable.
Have some problems with corrosion on all the aluminum under the hood. Will take it back to the dealer to have them clean it up. Satellite radio would be nice. It would be nice also if they put a set of tweeter speakers in the front for the higher sound ranges.
