So who else thinks the Fusion is kinda cool?

I looked at one the other day. Not real serious about it right now, but I should have the Stang paid off around the end of the year. I figure on looking for a more "family oriented" car with lots of interior luxeries. By this time next year I'll probably look at one seriously once there are some used ones out on the market. :chin:

Re: So who else thinks the Fusion is kinda cool?

But I really want something with lots of comforts on the interior.

If you get the charcoal interior with the piano black enhancements and leather.....uhhhhgg......happiness.

They are decent looking cars and the 3.0 Duratec has a fair amount of pep as well. If I was looking for a family car, I would definitely consider one.

Eh wasn't a huge fan, but I know the 30 year olds who work at Galpin Ford Dealership were all hyped up over it

Re: So who else thinks the Fusion is kinda cool?

the grill reminds me of a Mach 3 razor, its ok but I would get a nice 4 door truck or smallish (like envoy size) SUV, I love the SAAB 9-7x, before I got a sedan.

Re: So who else thinks the Fusion is kinda cool?

ugh. i thought the focuz was ugly. if i wanted a car like that (4dr gorcery getter) id get one that looked good, like a mazda 6 or something. even the new 4dr civics look better IMO(the 2dr civics look pretty sick if you ask me).

like fast said, you can shave with that grille.

Re: So who else thinks the Fusion is kinda cool?

I like them. The way the headlights look makes me like the front end. The *** end isnt too shabby either. The wheels would need a change most def.

But just imagine the front end with the upper/lower grills deleted, keep the fogs, and get rid of all the chrome bling bling **** in the back end. Smoke the tails, and find some nice 3" slant cut tips.

The big drawback...I just tried to get a price on one I'd buy, I got to step 2, went to select 5 speed and it said it wasn't available for the v6. So screw it lol.

Yeah, no 5 speed for the v6 but they do have a 6 speed auto.

As far as other "better" grocery getters, all the ones mentioned are out of price range completely.

Re: So who else thinks the Fusion is kinda cool?

Yep, it's been done since April, lol.

10psi making 330rwhp and 360rwtq. It's too rich tho causing some bogging on start up and occaisional idle problems. It needs a retune that I was going to put off for a bit but I probably need to address it sooner. Other than that, it runs great and no problems.

I would wait until fall.. they're slated to put the new 3.5 V6 under the hood of one of the models..

afaik they're also coming out with a v6 manual before too long

You're a Ford tech right?

I will rely on you to tell me what Fusions are having service work done for and what you think of the overall drivetrain and design.

I'm a ford tech.. haven't had any fusions come into the shop yet for anything aside from oil changes/tire rotations have very rarely had issues with the 3.0 V6.. solid motor if not the most powerful - the 6 speed trans is still fairly new, but so far so good.. the CVT options in the ford 500s have had issues but the 6 speeds have been fine so far

oh and speaking of that, ford 500 is a nice car for sure.. but it doesn't even HINT at having a sporty edge.. and its slow as balls...

personally I'd wait for the hopped up model in '06 (I'm assuming the turbo 4 from the mazdaspeed 6..), that or until they put the 3.5 in...

just my opinion though
