I wouldn't get a Ford based on my friend and co-workers experiences. One friend just bought a brand new Explorer and it had a slow leak in the engine which eventually drained out all of the oil and ceased the engine. He had to fight the hell out of Ford to get it fixed and they refused to give him a new one.
My co-worker bought a brand new Fusion Hybrid and there was a problem with the computer in the car and to make a long story short, they ended up giving him a buy back and then he got a new one. After hearing these two stories, I would never buy a Ford. They aren't built well and from my friends experiences, their service sucks.
Get the Lexus. I love my CT. It is super comfortable and was reasonably priced. I get an average of 37 mpg but that really depends on how far you drive and how you drive it. Also, you'd have to pay to charge the Ford, whereas I only spend $32/month in gas with my sexy CT.
