    I like the way it looks, inside and out... now if they'd just put a worthwhile engine in it. :(

    the camry may be the most boring car on the planet, but it gets from point a to point b without falling apart.

    If you've checked out the Fusion in person like I did, you wouldn't be. It's really in a different galaxy from all the other new garbage they've released lately.

    Yeah, and so has my Hyundai... for the last 85,000 miles. Shows absolutely no sign of letting up either.

    That's what I've heard. I've seen one at a local dealership in silver, it's a really handsome car.

    I'd rather have a fun, cool looking and dependable car than a bulletproof car with zero style and driver involvement. But I'm not everyone.
