    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Power is amazing for a V6 FWD, A lot of options for the car, Select Shift is fun, comfortable

    Cons: MPG isn't that great, The select shift has a delay when shifting

    Love It, Smooth, Peppy And Luxurious — Got the car for a great deal at the end of the model year. Cant beat the lease on this thing. Plus it actually worked out better to get one with lots of options (leather roof, heated seats, backup camera and more) than it did to get cloth. Plus Orange Motors in Albany (where i bought it) really took great care of me.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Ton of luxuries and a very solid vehicle especially for the price

    Cons: I would like a little more chrome around the body. But oh well

    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

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fuel Efficiency is great...33+ mpg.   Roomy enough for our family of 4.  Lots of great options including sunfoof, spoiler, Microsoft SYNC system.   Easy to manuever.  All around fund to drive!

    Cons: Don't really have any at this point

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: MYSYNC

    Cons: Nothing

    Handling Ranked 2012 Chevrolet Malibu LT2 better.
    "The Malibu power steering assist provided better road feel than the Fusion and had better responsiveness."
    Would Buy Ranked 2012 Chevrolet Malibu LT2 better.
    "Drove lots of midsized sedans. Camry, Accord, Altima, Fusion, Malibu. Came down to the Fusion and the Malibu. The Malibu presented an overall better value at the end of the day than the Fusion. Has the features we wanted and was priced better than the Fusions available in our market."

    Power Ranked 2005 Ford Five Hundred Limited better.
    "The old 3 l V6 is a little too small and really has to work to get this car to move especially loaded with a family of 4 and luggage. The engine change later for the Taurus was certainly needed."
    Handling Ranked 2005 Ford Five Hundred Limited better.
    "The seating is a little higher and one feels more in command of the road. Cornering and stability feels better in the Fusion"
    Looks/Style Ranked 2005 Ford Five Hundred Limited better.
    "Styling of the 500 is pretty bland and conservative, nothing to get excited about, but also nothing people will get upset about."
    Back Seats Ranked 2005 Ford Five Hundred Limited better.
    "This car is almost a limousine with lots of room and comfortable seats on long road trips"
    Cargo Capacity Ranked 2005 Ford Five Hundred Limited better.
    "The Fivehundred with the backbench down and the front passenger seat folded can accommodate 10 long boards for the sundeck. - Obviously the Hybrid with a battery in the back reduces available trunk space."
    Family Car Ranked 2005 Ford Five Hundred Limited better.
    "The 500 has a lot of room, everyone can stretch their feet"
