Take A Test Drive — I just drove this across country. It handled well and I got great gas mileage, I averaged better than what is posted because I used the cruise control and there was a few hills during the trip. Overall it is the best car I ever had. In the past 2months there has been no problems. I love how it handles here in San Diego. It has great acceleration for getting up on any of the Interstate on-ramps.

Pros

Good looks, Great gas mileage, solid engine with plenty of power.  

Cons

I traded up a lexus is250 so the car is lacking compared to a lexus but that is like comparing apples to oranges.  Other than that I think the car is great!

Solid Competition — My first impression when looking at it is a some what aggressive but conservative. It looks like a big car and it is for a midsize car. The materials in the interior are nice all around. I would prefer leather but the cloth seats are good. They are comfortable seats, i never get fatigued on my commutes and plenty of room for a six foot guy to stretch out. I think someone taller would have no problem either. Road noise is a minimum and the suspension smooths out the road nicely. The engine has a nice aggressive V6 sound when accelerating hard. Every day driving the engine is smooth and quiet. I feel the car has a little to much roll and dives easy when braking hard. What surprised me the most on this car is the gas mileage for such a big car and being a V6. The most I recorded is 32 mpg, but I usually average 29-30 mpg. I would highly recommend this car to someone that wants a great car for commuting and still big enough to haul family around.

Great Family Sport Sedan — I loved this car. Very powerful and I enjoyed racing people and easily winning. Great handling around corners. Has a lot of technology in it. Very easy to park and drive around. Not many blind spots. The only bad thing is the tires spin very easily due to the power and only FWD version of it.

Comfortable, Stylish, Economical And Affordable! — My wife uses this car for a 120 miles/day commute. The fuel economy is superb! This is the 2nd Fusion we have owned and for our application it couldn't work better. For a mid-size vehicle this has a lot of options and comforts at an affordable price tag

Don't Pass Up The Ford Fusion — I used my ford fusion for everyday travel and it is a very dependable car. Very easy to clean up and stays clean. And you can even pass up some gas stations with the amount of miles you get per gallon.

First Ford We Ever Owned — We were looking for a car to replace our 12 year old Buick LeSaber, +150K. Our Daughter purchased a used 2010 Ford in 2012 and we were very impressed with the car. So when it can time to replace the Buick I went back to our local Ford. As it turned out there was a used 2012 Fusion with only 6459 miles on it. We test drove it and bought the car on 2 Jan 2014.
