Great all around car with a sporty nature. Less expensive (on the used market) than a similarly equiped Camry or Accord. Better quality than a Taurus. Lots of room. Decent power from the silky-smooth V6. Happy with the purchase and would recomend it to friends.
Engine is smooth. Good headroom for front occupants (I'm 6'2" with a long torso).
I have the SE and wanted a little sportier feel. I upgraded to V-rated tires, added a front strut tower brace and a rear sway bar. There was a very noticable improvement in the handling with little effect on the quality of the ride.
