Pros: visibility easy to park
Cons: not much storage
Advice: get the limitedThis is my wifes car and it is a great little SUV it handles great and is easy to park. We have had a lot of positive feed back from friends and others who just really liked it. We got the limited loaded but it did not have a compass and outside temp. Ford wanted about $600 for one to be installed at the dealership. We had an aftermarket one installed today for $277. it looks better than fords and it was a very professional job . I cant think of a thing we dont like about.this vehicle altho we have only had it for ten days Max

Pros: V6 power, moonroof, interior
Cons: gas mileage
Advice: make sure to look into this vehicle if you are in the small SUV marketJust bought an XLT 4x4. The ride is awesome, and is by far the best looking small SUV out there. The V6 provides great power, and I'm glad I didn't settle for the 4 cylinder. The gas does go pretty quick, but not enough to make much of a difference. It averages about 22 mpg. Go for the moonroof if possible.
