Another Ford in the Family

Yesterday, my sister picked up an 09 Fusion SEL v6. It's a great car and I'm really impressed with it. My mom was leaning towards Malibus because she's had good history with the local GM dealer, but I insisted she go look at Fusions. (Ford not needing a bailout goes miles with me). She test drove 3 of them, an 07, 09, and '10 and all were great. Got a great deal on the 09 and it looks good sitting next to the stang.

Re: Another Ford in the Family

yeah, i really like the fusion. in my opinion, one of the reasons why ford is in a good spot right now. it was really a missing part of their lineup.

Re: Another Ford in the Family

Thanks guys, I'll put up a couple pics when I get a chance. It's dark blue ink (which I thought was black at first and ignored it, lol.) I drove it today for about 60 miles and it rides nice...especially after driving that mustang for 5 years, lol. And no, unfortunately it's FWD, but that's alright. The CTS is AWD though, and it launches!

Here's a couple of internet pics in the color:

Just like you said, Ford not needing a bailout means quite a bit to me too.

It really did surprise me. Decent power coming from that 3.0 v6, a ton of options, and good mileage. I wouldn't mind one as a dd/winter car.
