Got her yesterday
Finally picked up my car yesterday. I posted pictures about 3 weeks ago that the dealer sent to me. I'll post a few more later after I give her a good wax. Hopefully it'll cover the small scratches/swirl marks they left on it when they cleaned it.
Impressions: Interior is awesome. The only area that I saw that looked like it could have had better quality was the plastic on the doors. It would be nice if they were soft like the dashboards. The seats are very comfortable. Shifting is easy, but if I didn't have someone there to tell me how to get into reverse, I would have had to break out the instruction manual. It IS a bit quiet when it comes to exhaust, but sounds awesome when started and when given the go command. I'm extremely happy with all of the options that I decided to include. It feels more like a luxury car than racer.
I took a road trip down to Portland from Tacoma with my mom and stepdad. Both are 58 years old, so I kinda felt bad for them trying crawl in and out of front and back seat of the car. Once they got in though, they were quite impressed. They couldn't get over the technology inside the car, to include the nav system. It IS quite awesome. I have seen people say that they can pay $200 for a portable nav system, but I would have to say, it does not compare. I had a tomtom system that I paid $400 for, it it comes no where near as helpful as the nav system in this car.
My MPG average on the trip was over 23 MPG. I had just under 100 miles on the car when we left, so I imagine it'll get a little better after it gets broken in a little more.
I gunned it a little on a few of the onramps, and let me say, this baby has a LOT of power. My stepdad told me to take it easy and "this is too much power." I take that as a compliment hehe.
The ride has been really smooth and quiet. I've been quite impressed with how smooth it is for a sports car. Did I mention I had a RAV4 before this car?
I guess the last thing I can pass along is yesterday, I was at a stoplight when a Cobra stopped along my side. I don't know the exact year, but it looked like an 06. He gave me a big thumbs up, which made me feel pretty damn good.
There are a lot of things, that I'd love to talk about regarding the car, but others have already lauded it already, so I'll hold off on that. I have to say, I am very impressed so far, and have not a single regret with my choice on this purchase. To any that are out there that are wondering if they should pull the trigger, I would definately say yes. Ford did an awesome job with this car and I hope that everyone enjoys their car as much as I am enjoying mine.
