    Pretty good looking little car. Smaller than I thought it would be. The front looks really classy, and the back is predictably tacky with factory altezzas.

    It's been getting great reviews, and it might finally be a decent ford sedan :noes:

    Ward's auto said this:

    "The Fusion is a credible challenger for the Accord. But compared with the Camry and Chevrolet Malibu, Ford wins in a walk."

    the radio looks out of place. With a lot of the newer cars integrating the stereo into the dash, I would think ford would do the same, but it seems like thats not the case. :dunno:

    the front grill looks tacky in pictures, but it isn't bad at all in real life

    Most publications say it's a brilliant car lacking a decent motor.

    since it is built on the chassis for the mazda 6 i would imagine it would be the same thing as the mazdaspeed6 with a ford fusion body. so 2.3 4cyl turbo awd.

    It doesn't look like a bad car at all.

    It's CHEAP! Starts under 18k for a decent sized car. :cool:

    I will probably buy my wife one when we get rid of her corolla.

    I checked it out at the Dream Cruise and I'm very fond of it. It's light, looks great inside and out, very modern engineering, and priced right. It's a real shame they're going to rebadge it all to Hell to prop up Mercury and Lincoln.
