2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Purchased our Hybrid 1 week ago with Cash for Clunkers. After 360 miles we're at 38.2 MPG on a 50/50 hwy/city combination. Impressed with the dashboard information, have it set to the 60 minute bar graphs so you can see how well you did on mileage in ten 6 minute intervals. Learned quickly that stepping on the gas, then coming off it slightly yields better mileage than applying steady pressure. Was very surprised to have Sync Traffic and Directions in the vehicle, basically we have navigation for free. However, since Verizon Wireless won't allow Bluetooth text messages, the traffic portion appears to be useless, but directions feature is nice. Quiet coming up driveway is very nice.
Sync, tremendous feedback from display, quiet ride. Silent coming up driveway, too bad we don't have to sneak in late at night, no one can hear... Metallic finish is sharp.
Homelink (can't believe it isn't available). Figure out how to either tilt part of backseat or have a small space for large objects to stick through from trunk (2x4, skis). Exterior color selection is too limited, why no red or darker blue? Include trunk net,trunk should spring open with remote.
