Pros: size of the interior and the 6 way power seats
Cons: My truck is perfect and sound
Advice: Go with the 4 door crew cab it's worth the small price for the extra roomI test drove this truck up and down the highway with good take off speed for a truck of its size and weight. This truck is solid and quiet. The captain seats are must on the crew cab. They are firm but comfortable. There is alot of storage space inside the cab with a good size space behind the rear seat. Ford did a great job combining the look and feel of a big truck while still making it a comfortable ride on long trips.
Pros: safety record
Cons: size of the rear seat
Advice: It claims to get 32 freeway miles per gallon. It's realy about 25.The focus wagon handles well however it is very light and has trouble in the wind. Also it only seats five if the ones in the back seat are very, very, small.
Cons: Climate control
Advice: Take an extended test driveOunce you get over how you 'slide' into this vehicle you will find a truly unique and very satisfying car. Solid, good pickup, no turbo lag, spools up at very low RPM (1600) and remains smooth, very nice ride considering the wheelbase, suspension excellent, AWD is fantastic in the snow. All around, a great experience and I would buy another just to have the coupe and convertible experience.
Pros: the look of the vehicle
Cons: The seats
Advice: get true bucket seatsThis vehicle is uncomfortable to sit in. The seats, unless they are truly bucket seats are uncomfortable.
Pros: Seating for 8 and rear climate controls
Cons: Blind spot created by the passanger side(2nd) row headrest
Advice: buy it!I loved the way it handled and the comfort. It drives like a car.
Pros: Comfort, security and safety
Cons: fuel ecomomy
Advice: Test drive one, you won't believe how nice it rides and the dealer (Greenboro NC) was the nicest I've ever dealt withThis is the best vehicle I have ever driven. It sits up high giving you a commanding view. It feels safe and performs fantastic in the snow.
Pros: Solid quality feel.
Cons: Fuel economy.
Advice: Remember that this is a truck.Solid vehicle with a fairly good ride for a Jeep. Very good seating, quiet and a very good build quality with above average material quality. Fuel economy is poor, but one must keep in mind that this is a truck and it is also a very heavy vehicle. Compared with the other vehicles I had looked at, this offered more at a lower cost. A limited with leather and seat heaters is the way to go in Wi.
