    Rental Car -- Thumbnail Review — Rental car, so it was a little beat up by the time I drove it. It was also a 4-cylinder, so a little loud. Decent interior space and trim. Considerable improvement over the last Ford I drove. Ford saved some money in the trunk -- little insulation and exposed innards. I would have liked a Mazda6 to compare head-to-head.

    Pros: Roomy, good trim, subtle styling -- no superfluous fender vents!

    Cons: Loud 4-cylinder engine

    I Would Deffiatly Recomend This Car To Anyone. Not Just My Friends. — I love the way it looks. It's a brand new make and I love it!!It's a sparling midnight blue. (My fave color.) It has silver trim,a moon roof, and it drives amazingly smooth. It has a sync feature. (Which my family just loves) It lets you talk on the phone through the car and you can plug you iPod right through the car. The sound is spetacular. When you're listening to the radio it tells you the name of the song, who sings it, and the station. I've wanted the sync factor in our cars for a while. It's well worth whatever extra money it takes to get it. This car is awesome to drive.

    Pros: Hello...what haven't already metioned

    Cons: There are none!!

    Ford Moving Forward — There is so many things to talk about on my 2008 Ford Fusion.Lets start with performance. I have the 4cyl model, which is very good on gas. The EPA rating is 22/28, although I tend to get 25/33 or better. The acceleration is competitive with other cars with a comparable engine size. Braking is a dream, enough said, and it handles like a sportscar. The quality of the Fusion is outstanding. It was released by multiple oragnizations that Fords quality has met or surpassed Toyota in 2008. Nothing rattles, squeeks or anything like that. The cars appearance is nice. It is a attractive looking sedan. It has very edgey styling so it isn't as boring as most sedans out there. My interior is all black leather, and is just beautiful.(smells great too) There are so many neat features on my Fusion. All of my seats fold down flat; including the passanger seat. It is equipped with SYNC, all heating and cooling features are digital, there are storage areas everywhere in the car. I have a six disc cd player, 8 speakers, and two factory subs that are outstanding.6 cup holders, lots of room, usb ports, satilite radio, power seats, mirrors, windows, locks. There are lights under your side mirrors which is a nice touch, an auto dimming rearview mirror, and soo uch more. Overall the car is alot of fun to drive. It is economical, practical and full of great features. I highly recommend my Ford, and look forward to purchasing my next Ford Model: )

    Pros: too many to list

    Cons: everyone wants to ride with me now. haha

    The Fusion — I love the response of this car. I went in the mountains and the was still building speed going up the mountain! I went to Kentucky and I only filled up twice. The whole trip..which was almost 2 weeks..I only got gas 4 times...including the trip back home to North Carolina. This car is fun to drive, the sound system is great. The car says that I get 26.6 MPG in the city. One the trip, I go 30 MPG. I do recommend this car for anyine who has a family or is single. A person who likes room, speed and great MPG.

    Pros: Preformance, Styling, Sound System, Quietness, Command Drivers Seat

    Cons: Pretty big gas tank for a mid-size

    Nice Engine, Horrible Interior — Performance wise, the V6 producing 190hp is quite strong. I came from a 06 Taurus that had no power at all. The fusion is easy to accelerate in and gets up to speed in a hurry. The interior is disgusting... it makes me think that a group of engineers all vomited inside a car and then sort of made jokes and how they could make it worse The exterior reminds me of something a robot would think is cool, there is absolutely nothing inspiring about it's appearance. The car is comfortable to drive... if you closed your eyes, you might actually think you were in a pretty nice car... however, there are issues associated with driving with your eyes closed.

    Pros: Surprisingly quick

    Cons: not great gas mileage, ugly interior

    Fun Car — Our Fusion is great in town or when we travel. We have lots of room for packing. We get great gas mileage and it is so much fun to drive. We also love our navigation and sirius radio system. This is our first car with both those features. We also have a sunroof. It is easy to attach a bike rack to so we can take our bikes with us.

    Pros: Great for travelling too

    Cons: Black shows everything but I still like black

    Ford Fusion Se — It has decent performance levels, considering it is a 4 cylinder. With that comes pretty good gas mileage as well. Car looks awesome and the interior is also great. Half cloth half vinyl. Very comfortable. The only downfall is the noisy engine.

    Pros: Room, interior, exterior look, gas mileage, plenty of extras.

    Cons: Engine noise, gearbox

    Loss Of Power, Gain In Luxury — Going from a mod A4 there is a definate drop in power and handling, but in luxury, and features the 08 excels. Fusion is loaded with every option but leather and heated seats. Sync is a must feature

    Pros: Sync, luxury ride, 6-speed, dual exhaust, 6cd, dual subs stock, 8 speaker, chrome everything, lots of room

    Cons: Acceleration, top end speed, passing speed

    Sweet!! — It is a very nice car. I have the Sport Appearance Package with leather and the Moon and Tune Package. I love the red insert and stichting on the seats. THe 18 inch wheels are a very nice touch as well as the lip spoiler. The manual transmission adds some fun to drive factor to the 4 cylinder, even though shifting can be clanky. There is a lot of trunk space and the rear seats fold flat. Overall I am very pleased with the car.

    Pros: The looks are great with the SAP!! Very comfortable interior.

    Cons: The 4 cylinder is a little sluggish, but it is a relatively heavy car.
