What a great car from Ford. Maybe I'm a bit biased being a Ford owner for many years, but this is one fine car. My wife has a 2007 Camry and always wants to drive the Fusion. There is no comparison between the 2 cars, Ford wins hands down. Her car sounds like she has a typewriter under the hood, you can barely hear the engine on the Fusion. She has been won over by Ford ... and I believe most people that drive this car will be, too.
This is the first 4cyl I've purchased in years, but am not disappointed. Test drove both the 6cyl SEL and 6cyl Sport and while they were fast cars, decided to go for fuel economy this time around. 35 MPG on a recent 275 mile trip mostly @ 75mph. Averages around 26 in the city.
Sync technology is great, Sony sound is fantastic. Tell Sync to change a radio station, it will. Tell it to make a phone call, it will. Tell it your destination and it'll take you there. With the Navigation system you can even watch a DVD Movie while car is parked and/or listen to the sound when driving. (There is a hack to get around that, but not ready to tinker with it just yet). USB port for your I-pod/MP3, even an internal hard drive if you want to download songs to the "Jukebox".
Comfortable seating, dual climate, heated seats, sun roof, large truck, plenty of back seat room, the pluses goes on and on with a list price right around $28,000. I discover a new feature every day (really need to read the manual). Did you know you can just click the key to the start position and release it and the car will start. No need to hold it. Discovered that by accident when my fingers slipped from the key.
Great engine and trans. The 2.5L is a big improvement over the older 2.3L in the pre-2010 Fusions. No 4cyl vibration that is so common with the smaller engines. Smooth shifts, plenty of power in mid-range to merge or pass. Not going to squeal the tires off the line, but not going to be left in the dust either. This car is really fun to drive. Have the SEL package with the large tires/wheels and it handles extremely well. Steering tight and responsive.
If you're looking for a great car, you have to consider the 2010 Fusion. Like I said I've owned Fords for many years and have been extremely pleased (ran them all over 200,000 miles with minimal, if any repairs), but this car is over the top. Keep up the great work Ford. Thanks for not grabbing any of our money to bail yourself out. Keep building cars like this and your future will be insured.
