I dont think I have ever looked behind me with those blind spotters. They are so well placed and shaped and I could never get the aftermarket ones to sit right on previous cars

as for the interior lighting, another little treat is how the door ambient lighting will change if the door is open! When you unlock the car (or park it and turn it off), opening a door will make the interior lights default to Ford's ice blue and the open door will light in your set color:



excuse the shitty quality, but if you look hard enough the right door is open (red)

How many of you notice that when you adjust the center dash vents towards the floor, air will come out of the hidden vents holes over the HVAC controls. Not as cool but adjust the two outer vents near the doors and air will come out of the split lower section of the vent. Ford did this because of the extreme angle of the upper dash, neat.

I know it is kind of wierd but I love the soft touch dash. I put my phone up there once and frove off and it never moved. It worked for everything I put on it like sun glasses.
I also like the lights that stay on after unlocking. I work 2nd shift and little things matter.

soft touch dash...when my father-in-law (big car enthusiast) gets in my car the very first thing he does (everytime) is to push on the dash and remark "excellent quality". He's just drawn to it.

Oh...and he drives an Acura TL.

That spot where you put your envelopes
I put my glasses there. They fit perfectly if they are open (legs open and two lenses on my side and upside down) and for the most part they stay put.

Some of my favorites: Yes the mirrors are great. I also like the way at night when you turn the car off all the interior lights come on instead of letting you sit in the dark. I like the way the radio/cd does not turn off until you open the door. Also the turn signals, the way you can push the lever down and let go, they will flash 3 times. I have found that there is nothing on this car that i really don't like. And I love the gas mileage.!!!

Nothing makes me appreciate my car more than driving other cars. I rented a Corolla and a Fiat 500. I miss my baby.

Thanks for the tip. I didn't even realize they did that. I like it too.
