3Po: Mama, that's not our car! (And all the while, his face was asking me: Are you stealing a car, mama? I thought it was bad to steal?).
Me: Yes, honeys, it is our car, at least for the next four days. We're test driving this car over Labor Day weekend!
I have to say that Ooooohhhhh.... is pretty much how I felt when they dropped off the Lincoln MKT in our driveway this morning. It's not every day that you get to try out a luxury car, and that new car smell is just intoxicating. I think we're going to have fun with this car over the next few days!
I'm still a bit too paranoid about the thought of crashing the car while I'm fiddling with all the gadgetry, so for now I'm just driving it around and getting a feel for it. And rather than do a huge novel-length review of the car at the end of the four days, I'd rather just list down the stuff that impressed or annoyed me about the car as I encounter them. For example:
The Bongga: Airconditioned seats......ahhhhhh! Pure bliss on a day when you've parked in direct sunlight and enter the car wearing short shorts! WHY more automakers don't do this is a total mystery. As for the boys, their Coolest Feature vote is a 3-way tie between the dual sunroof, reversing camera and pushbutton start. For now, anyway (we haven't gotten to the Active Park Assist yet!).
The Blah: No beeping sensors at the front of the car...... arrrrgh! The MKT is a big car with a humongo hood; if you've got sensors at the back, why not have them in the front?
