Switched from an accord
By Pete on
2008 Ford Fusion SE 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I traded in my 2006 Accord for this because I needed an automatic transmission (Accord was manual). Enjoying it a lot so far - very comparable to an Accord in feel and handling, quieter road noise, comfortable interior. Highway MPG is great - I was just getting 35 MPG (according to the dashboard) while driving this morning. City MPG is ok, but not great. I haven't tried out the Sync yet, but hopefully it works well. Interior seems a bit roomier than the Accord. I also noticed the poor rear visibility, but it hasn't bothered me too much yet, as I'm comfortable using all my mirrors.
Good gas mileage, decent handling, comfortable seats, quiet on the road, fold down rear seats and passenger seat (great for moving large items)
A bit better acceleration off the line, better rear visibility, more interior storage compartments
