2008 Ford Fusion SEL V6Review

Ford's Coming Back! — It's hard to believe, I know. But, Ford is finally making great vehicles again and it looks as though the Fusion is leading the renaissance. Take one part Mazda6 (6's platform to be exact), powerful 4-cylinder and V6 engines, bold styling, a nice interior, some interesting technology, and you have a definite viable alternative to the bland Toyota Camry and boring Honda Accord. The ride is surprisingly great with the agility and power of a Mazda6 s and I'm amazed at how quiet the car is when traveling at least 55 mph. The Sync system is AWESOME which is amazing considering it's from Microsoft. There's no reason to avoid Ford cars anymore. This car is definitely worth checking out.

Pros: sleek exterior, interior material quality, quiet ride, plenty of power from the V6, Sync system is easy to use and works very well, easy to find a good position in driver's seat, plenty of room in the back for cargo and friends

Cons: V6 could use a little bit more power. 6-speed auto is good, but where's the manual-shift option? 6-speed manual should also be an option

Best Car I Ever Owned! —

My previous vehical was an F-150, so right away I was enjoying the gas milage. Before this purchase I was in the market for an SUV type vehicle, but the gas consumption and the price of a new SUV was just a bit out of my price range. While still in the dealer lot I glance over at the Fusion,and took a serious look at the sticker. I was looking at one with the sport package. I asked the dealer about it and he let me take a test drive. WOW! The acceration, turning and handling far exceeded my expectations! This thing has the heart of a Mustang GT! It was awesome! I was impressed so much I asked to see a Black colored Fusion with the same sport package. When he showed it to me, I said right away "This is the one I want!" It was loaded with every thing; Heated leather seats & mirrors, TCS, satillite radio, spoiler, electronic climate controls, slick sporty 18" rims and sticky 225 45 18 tires. I was surprised to see tires this wide on a car like this. It even had the special red inserts on the seats and the steering wheel to give it a race car look. 8 speaker 6 CD autiofile sound system, moon roof, Trip computer, reverse sensor, compass, and so much more! Ford really did it's homework on this car! I'am very happy with it!

Pros: Fun to drive; Accerlation; gas milage; handling; good price and good looks

Great Car — I think it looks good for a family sedan and it is very practical. It is very reliable and I have only had two mandatory services because the milage is still low. AWD is great for traction in the snow or mud. Consumption is around 19 to 20 mpg accourding to the onboard computer. There is plenty of V6 power on tap so it is a pleasure to drive. The sound system is great for my needs and it is very comfortable to drive with great handling as well.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great handling, very comfortable with plenty of V6 power on tap. All the bells and whistles I need like puddle lights, moon roof, audiophile sound, heated seats, AWD for the snow and plenty of space.

Cons: Front end looks a little dated now. Really not many cons I can come up with.

2008 Ford Fusion V6 — Very punchy acceleration. Brakes are standard. Handles like a muscle car. Its built pretty sturdy. You don't see many of this model year around. Its a loud V6. The engine wants to be a V8. It could be a unique looking car if modded correctly.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: V6 is loud.

Cons: Nothing.
