It's still a damn good car. Hell of a lot better than the family sedans that Ford NA gives us in the US.

Well to begin with, Ford Europe's design choices are far better than Ford NA's.

Have you seen the new Ford Taurus? Compare it to the Ford Mondeo Mk.4. Hell, I think even the Ford Mondeo Mk.3 looks better than the Taurus.

2008 Ford Taurus:


2007 Ford Mondeo:


You do the comparison. It's just sad that the US division of Ford can't even make cars that look better than the European division. It's quite humiliating to be honest...

wow thats kinda like a MK3 mondeo but even the MK2 mondeo looks better than that IMO
i must say i am a big fan of the new MK4 mondeo , i liked the MK2 wasnt too big on the MK3 but they really did get the MK4 right

My dad just picked one of these up:





Lexus IS 350. He let me take it for a spin. It's much different than driving my jeep liberty. Everything is so responsive. Good sound system too

Hahaha, that hella confused me. I thought your dad bought the IS-F. I was about to laugh at the fake side vents and fake quad tailpipes.

I don't know...I've never been a big fan of Lexus. They've always been overpriced Toyota's to me. I especially don't like how Japanese manufacturers use only power steering. I can't stand power steering at all. No road feel and it feels like you're driving in a video game.

Not to rain on your parade, congrats to your dad on the purchase!

yer but most if not all new cars these days come with power sterring because it is a lot easier to drive
and i mean power steering is a godsend when you've got a bigger vehicle , cos i know my parents car for example has power steering and i think it would make it really difficult to drive if it didnt have
