We stayed home most of the day, but we turned an errand to pick up Alfie's shoes into a major family outing, just so we could get back into the Lincoln MKT. Usually even the slightest whiff of eau de errand is enough to send my kids into whining fits, but when I asked them if they wanted to ride in the new car, they quickly put down their drawing pens and scrambled to put their shoes on!
Alfie was impressed with the responsiveness of the car; he couldn't believe it when I told him the MKT has a 350 horsepower engine. And once again, the rear parking camera was a hit. We have front and rear sensors on our minivan to help with backing up and maneuvering, but this is the first time we've tried out the rear parking camera. Thank goodness for the rear camera, because with 2 carseats in the 3rd row, the rear window is almost completely blocked, and there is no way you'd be able to see a kid walking -- acting silly -- behind the MKT. Then again, if the camera weren't there, my kids wouldn't have been posing and acting silly in the first place!
I never thought I'd say this, but there aren't enough cupholders in this car. Geez, I've got to get out of the suburbs. You know you've really gotten domesticated when you complain that two cupholders per row aren't enough! But seriously, other than for macho bragging, does anyone ever really need a 350 hp engine?
Two days down, two more to go, and I still haven't gotten to use the Active Park Assist!
