Re: Fusion vs. Milan vs. Zephyr
I too have just driven all three cars & like many others find the Fusion to be far & away the best deal for the money and it has striking good looks.* The Mercury and Lincoln are also good looking cars from the outside.* On the inside, I think the use of light wood with the Chrome is tremendous!* Thus the Lincoln wins hands down for me.* The leather in the Ford looks like nagahide (sp) from the 1970s and somehow cheapens the car.* The interior of the Merc is simply non-discript, like Mercury's identity.* From a driving standpoint, both the Ford and Mercury excelled and were fun to drive.* Great accelleration and braking--nice ride in between.* The Lincoln seemed mushy, like an old-man's car.* Maybe it was because I had just driven my BMW 330 CI to the Lincoln dealer.* I won't part with the Bimmer Coupe--it is like no other driving car, but I'm looking for a fun-to-drive sedan & the Lincoln Zepher is not it!* The Ford Fusion, however, while not quite a BMW, was fun to drive, handled well and & I would be proud to be seen in it.* (Unlike the really sad looking groupthink Ford 500 which my pesky Ford dealer kept telling me I should be looking at.)* I like this Fusion and when the AWD option becomes available, I may very well buy one.* I can't have two dogs in the snow, my Bimmer and a Sedan.* But overall, I do like this car because of its performance, ride and exterior looks.* Way to go Ford!
