2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I previously owned an '00 cirrus (18 mpg) and with the FFH (501A) I'm getting exactly 38-41 mpg with moderately conservative driving in the hilly Boston areas over 1700 miles of driving. I got a 6.6% discount on MSRP. There is a small delay when immediate torque is requested (when compared to a small displacement V6), but acceleration is adequate. I think the FF '09 body style was sexier but '10 is not ugly. My experience on the HWY is more than 36MPG (more like 36-42 mpg) I'm very happy and expect to keep driving this car for the next 10 years.
Microsoft Phone Sync . . . a little quirky on names but finds them adequately for a program that doesn't need to be trained. Reconfigurable instrument cluster also a big plus.
Multiple car BIOS' would allow the driver to save even more fuel by adjusting when/how the car goes from EV to gas mode. I also hate how the trunk space is diminished but have accepted it.
