I drove several brands and decided to try a Ford last of all as I wasn't really convinced I would want one. The dealer cash incentives were too big to ignore however, and once I drove the car, I fell in love with it. The SYNC is just amazing and I love the traction control and 4 wheel disk brakes. The acceleration is smooth and the braking firm. The Fusion has the best handling I have ever driven in a sedan and it looks really sharp in the driveway. 5* crash ratings and a 10.0 from JD Power for reliability sealed the deal. No other brand has anywhere near the 'bang for the buck' that Ford does currently. As good as an import, has SYNC and costs thousands less.
SYNC, spacious cabin, great handling, sharp looking, quiet, reliable
Turn signals in mirrors and replacement of the headlight switch. I had to pull over and look for the headlight control the first evening I had the car.
