I've owned my LE '05 CC for just over 4 months now (first truck ever) and couldn't be happier. The truck sells itself, even impressing some dyed-in-the-wool american brand only types. I think this truck might last as long as my old volvo (200k+ miles). As for the reviewers complaining about the ride, you really need to ride in a sport sedan like my wife's Maxima SE!! If you want a car that floats along the road, you need to buy a Lincoln.
body integrity -- I've been plauged by small squeeks and rattles when driving over bumpy roads at around 20mph. It's been to the stealership once, but still squeeks. I think there's a service bulletin out to replace the fuel pump and bracket to fix the squeeking.
