Cons: power steering feel
Advice: go drive one...I test drove this car yesterday. It's not your moms Sable, that's for sure! It's a whole new ball game. This is a very nice car....so nice that I ordered one in black/dk charcoal. It's very nice looking, very fast when needed, rides great/quiet, and no junk 'in the trunk'lot's of room. The only thing I found un-appealing about this car is the rather 'heavy' feeling power steering. It doesn't bother me or the handling, just a different feel. I think you'll like this one....still a little strange convincing myself that 'I bought a Mercury' !
