There are 4 user reviews for the SEL FWD trim shown below
- American made, SLEEK, Runs like a cheetah! SMOOOOOTH!
- Trunklid to rear fender "fit" is a bit clumsy, that's it, so far!
Purchased As New
The wife wanted a Fusion, and I thought i could buy a mexican-made car, but after driving one, NOPE! Tried a Camry (85%US) as well, and it was nice......... the wife wanted it on the spot. MADE her go try a Taurus, she was caught, hook/line/sinker in 5 blocks! Then, it was my turn to drive (no salesman, hehehe) At the first stop sign in open territory, I let the 3.5 breathe.............NICE!!! While quite peppy through the whole spectrum, from 5500-6500 rpm's it was an animal ! Almost reminded me of my '71 Charger R/T for a sec there. Hit the interstate next and it got to 100 QUICK!!! (sorry Ford and state troopers, I apologize sincerely) Accelerated well from 40 mph too...........PLENTY of passing oomph! Knew some rough railroad tracks, and hit them @20mph..............no clatters or rumbling, TIGHT!!! Went to the local wally-world parking lot and slalomed it, hard! Again, tight, quick steering, and almost no yaw! Interior is firm and tight. Lots of gadgets for the wife to mess with (SEL model, mind you). Out the door price was $200 more than the Camry's otd... WIN/WIN/WIN! ................just have 1000 miles on it in the two weeks we've had it, but no complaints from the wife or myself, except the trunklid fit.
One more thing.........we had to pick the Grand Daughter up from school the day we bought it...........'shoulda seen the looks and heard the oooohs and aaaahs from all the 6th grade boys............ just like i woulda' done in 1971, seeing a hemi car or copo camaro! (kinda sad that the young ones today will only see those on barrett-jackson)
