    The ride is harsh. My wife hated to ride in the truck the whole time I owned it because of the shitty ride. For a sports car it would even be a bit harsh. I never felt comfortable driving the truck unless I was flogging it like I stole it. It's no cruiser for sure. Maybe a lowering kit would help but I doubt it. If I were you, I would buy a used 2008 Cadillac CTS or a used Audi A6 for your purposes. They come cheap for what you get and they are classy and comfortable but still sporty.

    No, I need a truck to double as a "work" vehicle. I'll be trying to drive the'05 QC I was talking about in another thread on Tues/Weds. I'll try to see what you mean. I'm a little unrefined having been driving the Mustang and F350 all these years. I don't think the ride could be any worse than either of those!:p

    We go on lots of road trip and my boys are 6ft3in and 6ft5in tall and then there is my 9 year old daughter. They all 3 ride in the back seat and we will go sometimes on 3 to 5 hour 1 way trips. They never complain. They also said it's more comfortable than my wifes 2006 BMW325xi 4 door.

    I feel completely the opposite. I think it rides great. But then again all my other trucks had lifts and large tires on them. So this is my first 2wd truck. I havent had anyone complain of the ride of my truck yet.
