I drove it to Tennesse and back immediately after buying it. 1449 miles at 70 mph and a little city driving in Knoxville. Used exactly 44.1 gallons of 87 octane fuel. Very nice indeed. Four wheel disc brakes are very nice. Rear wheel independent suspension is "sports car like" in feel. This car seats 5 adults comfortably and the fold down split banch rear seat is very nice for carrying bulky items. I really enjoy driving this Fusion.
Engine has timing chains driving cams; no belts. Love the tight suspension and independent rear wheel suspension too. Very comfortable vehicle. I traded in a 1993 Crown Victoria and found little comfort lacking in this great Ford Fusion S model compared to my old Ford.
