Fun To Drive Hybrid, Did Not Get The BMW
By johno626 on
2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
We are on our third week with the FFH and love it, so does my wife who drives a BMW. I was on my way to writing a $50K check for a new BMW for me when I saw and test drove the FFH. The handling is great and the technology well thought out, and I saved about $20K over my other choice. We just did a 1 week drive (>1000) vacation within NYS and averaged well over 37 mpg, with some short trip topping over 50 mpg when mostly on EV. The Sync system is great although I had to purchase a new phone because my old one didn't sync with it. My wife who loves maps and directs our drive trips loves the Nav system. It found the backwoods cottage we rented in the Catskills without a hitch. Great car!
Styling, NAV, Sync, leather seats, EV, CVT, and the great handling.
Work on shrinking the battery to gain trunk space/fold down seats, or submerge the battery into the chassis.
