I bought this car in Nov 08, with 7800 miles. Living in Western Pa. and traveling 100 miles a day to work and back. I was looking for something that had great handling in the snow. The AWD V6 is very responsive and great traction on snow and wet roads. The Fusion's has allot of room and a comfortable ride. No problems. I put 20,000 miles on so far, have been averaging 22 combined and 26 HWY. The design is awesome, Ford has a real winner in the Fusion. I would recommend this car to anyone.
More Horsepower, maybe 3.5L., better Visibility out the back. Better turning radius, maybe Rack-in-Pinion, heated rear sets. Light in the Glove box. Don't put 17" Michelin Tires on the V6 AWD car, Maybe Yokohama.
