2011 Ford Fusion SE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
After driving 2200 miles to and from Oklahoma, I can safely say the car is great. Traveling at 75, I averaged 29.6 mpg, using gas with 10% corn squeezing. Was 32 with real gas. Slowing down to 65-70, I got up to 33.5 mpg. That is based on the computer readout, not calculated by me. On the way home, we drove 1100 miles with only a couple of stops at rest areas for catnaps. The seats were always comfortable. I like the power seat back in the 2011 model. At 75 am turning about 3100 RPM, about the same as a Harley-Davidson. The car needs a taller 6th gear. But overall, I could not be happier with the Fusion. All the trunk space is usable. Luggage for 3 for a week was no problem.
Sirius radio was great for the trip. Just such a nice car overall.
Again, taller 6th gear. Be nice to have an HID headlight option, even if dealer installed. Hard to see lane markings in the rain at night in Missouri and Illinois. Maybe I'll try Silverstars.
