Today I test drove a Ford Fusion. I like the way it rides/drives and handles the corners. Next week I plan to take it for a couple hours, have my mom go with me, and run errands. Then I will see if I still like it.

Do any of the Peas have experience with this car?

Next week will be the one year anniversary of getting our Fusion. We've not had a single problem with it. It rides well, is comfortable and is getting about 34 MPG. This was the first year in over 30 that we have not owned a Toyota so I was really nervous about switching to Ford but we've been happy.

I love mine! I REALLY want a '13, but I have a '10 and I love the way it handles and the room inside.

The Fusion I test drove was a 13'. It wasn't the sport version, which is what I would order. But I really liked the way it handled.

I'm still going to test other cars as well.\

Thanks for you input

My 2006 Fusion is paid off and still going strong! Ford makes really great cars. Very reliable.

I bought a 2010 Fusion in May. I love it! It is so fun to drive and has lots of fun features. We have three kids and I was worried about room but they all fit fine in the back seat.

I bought a new one in 2010 - and I love it. It has been my most favorite car. Mine is a 2011.

Have one and love it. It's a well built, reliable car. It handles well and is comfy.
It's a little cramped for tall people. My hubby hates it, but he hates cars, generally speaking, so take that with a grain of salt.

Well Peas, I believe this thread has gone Thrusday.

I don't have a Fusion, but I do have a 2012 Focus Titanium. I am telling you this because I love the technology. Check out the Ford Touch and SYNC. This is my 2nd Ford after having 5 Hondas. I trade every 2 years and I am planning on getting another Ford. I think the new Fusion looks great. I'll bet is drives like a dream too.

My future DIL has one and recently had to put close to $3,000 worth of work on hers because something went bad and actually fried parts of the engine. Ford knew there was a probldm but would notmake it good. Also I believe either the 2012 or 2013 Fisions are on the recall list.

froggy one - yes all production was stopped until the "kinks" were worked out and recalls were being taken care of. My dealer, who happens to also be a friend, was telling me about it.

All new ordered cars will come out with everything up to standard. Plus, I have always had good luck with our dealership. If something has gone wrong my salesman is right there to make it right again. They give us a loaner car and fix the issue right away.
