Yea the seats are adjustable and have a good lumbar support. The car doesn't feel like a small car. It has some sort of computer system that adjusts the steering with the brakes on control issues. Don't ask me how it works. It rides better than the wife's Explorer. Since I live in the south I haven't tried the heated seats yet. Might get to use those perhaps two days a year. :roflmao:

Been trying to talk the wife into getting one. I'm a nothing but Ford kind of guy :bow: but that would be the only car I would have. About what do they run price range? And have there been any major concerns with them??
