2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I have driven over 3000 miles with an average 41+ mpg. The dashboard display trains you to drive conservatively to increase MRP, but anytime more acceleration is needed, you can get it. The car isn't as fun as my Passat in terms of cornering and shifting, or my old Mercury Mystique (I miss the 5- speed!). However, the Fusion handles very nicely - - I often corner it sharply to avoid braking at low speeds, and it is very stable. The SYNC system makes up for driving more conservatively -- I've been listening to podcasts downloaded to a USB thumbdrive.
