I just bought my 300E yesterday and I'm absolutely in love with it. I previously owned a 1996 Ford Windstar minivan I inherited from my dad, and I hated driving. With my 300E, driving is my new favorite activity! I love the ride...so smooth! It has 180,000 miles on it right now and I'm hoping for lots more!
Moon roof, leather seats, comfortable smooth ride
Shifts kind of hard when I first start driving it, but easier as the engine warms up
