You missed out by not putting the steering into sport mode. It was unbelievable. You wouldn't know it was a Ford.
I tend to agree on the rest of your points, but I found the live rear axle to show it's ugly side on bumpier roads. Also I despise the wheels they ship with it. Good for winter and that's about it.
