    Think aston martin when you look at it. First time you see it, seems kinda ugly, but quickly grows on you I think.

    I like how plastic truly is taking over new cars. Anyone wanna try and lug that rear bumper around a shop to put it on? I think that quarter panel is about the size of a piece of legal paper. I've always looked at my cougar and been envious of 1960's iron, with quarter panels as long as the damn car is wide! Now....I've got the dinosaur with a [relatively] massive quarter. Ohhh yeaaauuuuuhhhhhhhh.

    It's already been said, but I also think it looks like a smaller version of the current Taurus except for that Chrysler-looking grill. It's gonna take awhile for that to grow on me. But on the other hand, we recently upgraded to an '09 Taurus (aka Five Hundred) and I wouldn't say that grill is any better. So who knows?

    They sure do drive nice, though. The whole underside of the 1.6t cars is covered in aero cladding, and the start stop feature is bound to get lots of starter jobs into my bay.
