- Good Looks, Nice Tight Steering, Great Bang for the Buck, decent MPG
- Rear Visibility, Dated Radio and the S Dash Treatment Looks Very Cheap Compared to the other models
This is by far the best Ford product that I have ever owned. The value for the money is outstanding, and so far the quality has been good. I wish Ford could get their gas mileage up there with Honda, but they sure kick GM! I come from a Ford family and I have had one car that was not a Ford. While I do not think everything on this car is up to par with Honda standards, I still cannot justify spening the extra money on an Accord when the Fusion is priced at bargain basement lows. We test drove everything from Hyundai to Honda and still ended up with a Ford. Toyota still charges you for every single option; even a passive anti-theft system does not come standard on a Corolla! This car has nice tight steering, a downright solid build quality (which I was scared about, because previous Mexican built Fords were awful). This car feels more solid than my mighty Canadian built Grand Marquis. If they can build them this well in Mexico and it gets the company back on their feet than more power to them. The manual is not the smoothest out there, but it is a huge improvement over my Escort and Mercury Cougar, and it feels sporty and fun to drive (unlike the plastic looking bland Camry). Honda make a superb car, but an Accord with these options would cost far more. The S dash treatment around the radio controls needs to be on par with the SE and SEL; Simply putting painted plastic FUSION letters where the nice clock goes needs improvement.
Unlike most, I find the seats very comfortable on long and short drives. The rear window could do without the big breaklight taking up space. I like the fact that four wheel discs are standard. I would like to see rims standard and have no steel rims with wheel covers whatsoever, even on the S. Overall, a darn fine car that comes packed with standard features and does not look like Japanese plastic!
