"Drives nice but lousy city mileage and buggy syn"3.5 starson by beemer273
Pros: Nice ride, peppy engine for my needs. Very comfortable and roomy
Cons: Its a big rig! City gas mileage 14mpg. hwy 20. The sync system is very buggy. Waiting for a new release due out soon. The iPhone 4 does not interface very smoothly with the sync system.
Summary: Ford got it 95% right. This is a nice rig but I would recommend you drive it for a weekend before you buy. I'm having a little bit of buyers remorse. I like it but its huge. You sit up so high that its hard to get a feel for the stuff around you so you don't hit it! The interior is fantastic. The sync system is a great concept poorly executed and buggy. Even the clock goes nuts in it. I've had lots of problems with my iPhone 4. I'm hoping the new iTouch/Sync release 2.7 that is due out this week will solve some of these issues. If you are going to drive it in the city, expect 14-15mpg. Forget the 17 rating. It does seem to get over 20 on the hwy.
Thanks for your submission!
