I will start this out by saying that I am a Ford man. I currently own a F-150 and think it is nothing short of amazing. I am in the market for a high MPG vehicle for long distance driving. It will be an extra vehicle in that my wife already has a Mini Cooper. I want to buy an American vehicle (yes, I know the Fusion is built in Mexico). The Fusion S with the 2.5 manual seemed perfect at 21k list and 34 MPG.
I went out and test drove it today with the expectation of buying. Disappointed, I walked from it. The seats were flat out strange and did not work for either myself or my wife. After only 20 miles our backs hurt. The passenger seat cushion was at a strange angle and not adjustable. The head rest had my wife staring at her belly button.
Since we are looking for a highway car I tested it at ~75ish (NC the speed limit is 70 so 75 is the norm). The steering felt artificially light and a little flaky at that speed. I did not like it.
As I said, in the end ? I walked. To speak of the positives, the 2.5l engine was very smooth and had sufficient power. The manual transmission was very comfortable. The throw was reasonable and the clutch grabbed at the right height. There was a lot to like about the car.
I gave this the car a fairly high rating for I didn?t want to be the one that artificially lowers the consensus opinion but didn?t actually buy. I am likely going to wait and see what the new Focus brings to the table and I might even try out a Fiesta. Who knows, maybe a lower cost platform with better options will be more appealing....read morehide
