I'm a newbie to this site and look forward to both your insight and experiences with both Ford and LM's hybrid version SUV's. I live in northern NJ and at this time of year I am finding it almost impossible to locate a dealer who has an FEH in stock at all. I have not yet checked into the Lincoln yet - it's a bit more pricey than the Ford but may be forced to due to the lack of '07 FEH vehicles. I'm leaning towards the FWD model for better mpg's and less $$$'s.

Love to hear some feedback from owners of both vehicles ... and others like myself who are still shopping. Thanks in advance for your help. I'm looking forward to acquiring one and becoming a valued contributor here in this forum.
