First, I own and drive the 2011 Ford Fusion SE with the automatic transmission.
( Not a listed option for this model under review section as it should be. )
I have been buying and driving all makes and models of cars since 1967.
The most impressive thing about this car is it's thoroughness in it's excellence from the most major thing to the most minor thing.
It does EVERYTHING well that a car driver would hope and expect a car to do.
I have the completely loaded version and I challenge anyone to find a better fully loaded midsize family sedan for under 25,000 sold in America.
If you do, please let me know as I will have to see it to believe it!
1.small L shaped perpendicular center console allowing for lots of legroom ( other car manufacturers in this segment take note:
The bulky concave center consoles you use severely limit leg room for driver's comfort! )
the instrument control panel behind the steering wheel has the most used speedometer centralized in it's cluster ( other car makers in this segment seem to think the speedmometer should be everywhere except centralized as it has been since, say, the invention of the auto! ) 3.
fun, smooth, quiet, comfortable and dependable high tech ride
Highly recommend this car.
Drive one. you will join the club!
