2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid: Keeping Me Toasty and Happy

December 01, 2010

I love our 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid's cabin and heater. So warm and cozy that I just don't want to leave. You see, this past week has been unbearably chilly. OK, the low '60s may be nothing to those suffering in colder climes but for someone like me who owns only one top and bottom set of silk long johns which are only broken out for going to Mammoth or Sacramento, it's fuh-reezing! Add to the fact that my 1930s apartment doesn't have weatherstripping around its doors and windows and I am not a happy camper.

So I was thrilled when the Fusion Hybrid was my car for several days. Score! Seat heaters! Plus, check out how easy that climate control system is to figure out. Yes, I crank up the heat to 81, in addition to having the seat heater on the highest setting. I'm of a tropical people.

And if you don't want to deal with navigating the touchscreen to turn up the heat, there are accessible and easy-to-figure-out buttons below the audio controls.
