Recently purchased the 06 Ford Fusion SEL V6 6-speed and im impressed with the interior and the exterior is so-so. I plan to add ground effects and replace the grille to an aftermarket "net-looking" grille. Has power and handling is great. Bought it with 46k miles and hope to get another 46k without a major repair. Not as responsive as I would like. I went to pass a truck on the interstate and it took 3 seconds or more for the car to downshift and pickup, but when it did it passed the truck without any problems. I've heard great things about the reliability of the fusions and that is what my rating is based on. After 25k+ miles I will update the post with hopefully good things.
Interior is great and love the black leather seats and handling. Sound system is decent and will replace to aftermarket soon.
BETTER MPG (which is said in nearly every review) SOFTER SEATS & BETTER LUMBAR SUPPORT (long rides seem to take its toll on your backside and lower back)
