After having the vehicle for 3 years now with 58K on the odometer I thought that now was a appropriate time for a real world review, and this is what I found.
I have had ZERO issues with reliability and have gotten everything I wanted out of the car. True, it is not exactly the most stylish car out there(pales in comparison to say a CTS) but also costs a good 10K less. Gas mileage has been 23.3 avg over highway (80mph) and city. I do about 20K miles a year.
The heated and cooled seats are a fovorite in the winter/summer, I know it sounds somewhat rediculous to have A/C seats but trust me...when summer gets here it is a wonderful perk!
Great car for the money.
air conditioned seats are just awesome come summer.
I would love to see ford dump the money into the Lincoln design team to bring back the days of arguing which is better Lincoln or Cadillac. For now Cadillac dishes out a a old fashion butt-kicking in design, BUT Lincoln has a clear advantage to reliability.
