    I like the styling, too. But I'm with you in the power department.

    It's like the perfect car for my mom as is. I'd drive one if it had more power.

    It's a great platform because it is basically a 40k Volvo. If only it had a proper engine.

    True, I would love to be able for my mom to have one, she deserves a nice car.

    But considering its based on another platform, I would trust it.

    Not midsized in any respect, they're huge bitches. Nearly as long as the Crown Victoria with much more room inside and trunk that could hold a couple of bodies. Perfect car for old people with no taste in cars, not exactly a huge part of the new car market. :o

    I'd rather have a Fusion, or SVT Fusion whenever that comes out. Best new Ford next to the Mustang and GT. :o

    I remember telling my friend at the auto show "hey look at that trunk, I could fit 4 bodies in there"

    then some random guy was like "I don't know what kind of bodies you are thinking of, but i could fit 6 or 7 in there!"

    hey... its a pretty cool car, the interior dosen't look all that bad.

    What people are going to like about it the most is the fact that it you sit high in it like a SUV (the reason why most people like SUV's)

    I agree with the power thing... but luckily the Duratec is a modifiable engine... that is if you are into doing it with this kind of car. The least they could've done with this car was give the AWD the 4 liter engine. :o
