    What I Think Of My Car — The ford fusion I drive rides very nice with a fairly good and stiff suspension. Along with the wheels I have I find it is a very nice looking car and is unlike many cars on the road which I like. Everyone and their dog has a mustang and you'd have to do a lot of work to it to become unique from all the others.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: I like my wheels

    Cons: Its a four cylinder cause you cant get the six with a manual tranny

    Good Car For The Money — This was the first brand new car i ever bought, i know have 35k on it. the car has great pick up for a 4 cylinder. the car drives good, brakes good, and i love the gas mileage. I like the car overall and it was priced right. the only thing i dont like would be all the stupid minor problems that i have had like small plastics inside breaking or rattling. i have also had a transmission problem but, it was and still is under the warr.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: gas mileage, looks, reliability

    Cons: cheaper interior

    2008 Ford Fusion Sel Sport — It's a gorgeous car. It handles very well, but it doesn't have very much power at all. The premium sound system is AMAZING. The seating is very comfortable, and it's a very smooth ride but in my opinion it needs more power.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: The sound system, the smoothness, and comfort.

    Cons: It's very slow.

    Ford Did An Awsome Job On This One — Acceleration is good enough but i did opt for the 2.3 four cylinder for fuel economy.It is a very well built car no problems yet just regular oil changes and tire rotations 28000 km on it so far.It is a very good looking car that hugs the road great i would like to take the sport edition for a drive.The car gets about 7.8 L for 100 km on the highway and about 8.5 L in the everyday running around. great car to drive, I would recommend it to anybody

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: good looks comfortable to drive

    Cons: the factory tires blow

    Own It. — I love everything about this car. There are only a few options that, in comparison to a Lexus, it doesn't have. The warranty is great, it performs like crazy on the highway, and I wouldn't trade it in for anything. The brakes are awesome, road noise is about average to low, the appearance is sexy and it is too much fun to drive.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: More powerful than she looks

    Cons: Wide turning radius

    Amazing 08 Fusion! — I like it, although it gets pretty loud sometime but when you get on the high way it rides....!!! I have but 27,000 miles on in a year and it hasn't needed any repairs. The exterior of it is amazing...although i've nicked it a few times. The gas runs pretty good and of course oil change in about 6 or 7 months normally for the rate at which i drive it. Its a fun car, somewhat of a good everyday car!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The sports look and make of it

    Cons: the jump off...and it really doesn't go as fast as my honda

    Fun Driving The Fusion — This is a really comfortable car that is fun to drive. In the desire to reduce the amount of gas I was using, I opted for the 4 cylinder model with the 5 speed automatic. Acceleration is sluggish off the start but once the rpm's increase, the car can accelerate pretty fast. Plenty of power to merge or pass on the highway. The tail end of the car is high, limited view out of the back window. The back of the car also curves in toward the end so seeing the end of the car in the mirrors is impossible. I am thankful my car comes with the park assist sensors in the rear bumper.

    Pros: huge trunk, fun to drive

    Cons: can't see the tail end of the car, sit low in the car so a bit difficult to exit the car

    Ford Fusion — I love my Ford Fusion. It's a great car for a great price. The gas mileage is great. I'm still averaging 25 to the gallon in the city. It has great acceleration for a 4 cyl. It's comfortable to drive. There is plenty of room for a small car. You won't believe the trunk space. It's great! The only thing I don't like about my car is the color of the seats. The color is way to light! I wish it had the temp. and compass in the mirror. Overall it is a great car. Why get a Honda for much more money?

    Pros: Gas mileage, price and room

    Cons: Interior color

    2008 Ford Fusion V6 Sel Awd —

    Performance - The AWD on the Ford Fusion is great! It handles wonderfully in the snow. The 3.0L DOHC V6 has adequate power for the car. There could be a bit more power I believe. Braking is not a problem with 4 wheel disc brakes. There is a bit of body roll, which could be fixed with a strut tower bar, rear sway bar, and possibly a front subframe X-brace. (All available from Steeda) Build Quality Seems to be good. There are no squeaks or rattles while driving. I have had this car for 4 months (August 08 to December 08) and I have had no mechanical problems. Appearance - Decent. It has good body lines and looks "sporty" to some people. Interior seems to be lacking quality in the dash, but all other areas are great. The leather seats are comfortable and the heated seat option works wonders. Cost of Ownership - Gas mileage is not too bad. The sticker for the V6 SEL AWD is 18 city and 25 highway. The car stays close to these figures. I have gotten 26.7 on the highway on a long trip. Maintenance seems to be carefree for the most part. So far, I have only changed the oil. Nothing else has had any issues that need attention. Fun Factor - This car is a blast to drive. It grips to the road wonderfully, even in the snow. When you want to be a little "reckless" you can turn the TCS off and do as you please. The car does have its limits though. Overall - This car is a great sedan overall. There is plenty of leg room in the front as well in the back. The trunk has ample room for many items. I think its a great buy for the money.

    Pros: AWD, leather seats, SYNC

    Cons: Mileage isn't the best
