Really impressive automobile
By scottbri on
2014 Ford Fusion SE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
We sold our 2008 Honda Accord and went to the Fusion just because we felt like a change, and Fusion had been getting good reviews.
We test drove it and were hugely impressed, especially how quiet it was, and how much pep it has.
After 5,000 miles, we have identified only tiny negative issues: the ignition key slot is hard to see in the dark; it's hard to see where the front end "ends" when parking (till you get used to it), and with a full tank, we hear a little "creaking" noise that I think may go away as the car gets further broken in.
Probably related to suspension or weight from a full tank.
We got the six speed stick shift and it's a joy to drive. Smooth, crisp.
Car handles beautifully and has good road feel.
Sound system is great, though the abundant electronic features and the info screen take some getting used to.
Many or all of the various commands can be done from the steering wheel, or by voice command.
Again, bit of a learning curve.
Illuminate the ignition key slot area and put the same back up warning system into the front end, to eliminate possible scrapes when head in parking.
Front end warning is available as an option but we didn't get it and wish we had.
