Love the throaty sound of the exhaust when leaning on it while still being civil at the light.
Leather & hands-free phone calls (other than an ear-piece) are new to me, and I like 'em.
Trunk space is fantastic.
The BLIS system has already come in handy at the parking lot.
Kudos to Ford for designing the stereo receiver right; I've never had such clear FM reception of this many radio stations, ever (and once I went through the dial, I stopped using it in favor of BT Audio or Sirius - still though, thumbs up).
Dash mounted Tic-Tac dispenser and kegerator in the trunk. (okay, maybe those aren't actually here)

As a ten day owner at this point things I like so far:

Styling (front grill, the front profile in general)
Smooth shifting auto transmission
Very good power from the 2.0
All of the optional features, BLIS, backup camera, adaptive cruise, moonroof
Keyless entry
Remote engine start
Trunk space
Technology ports -- 2 USB, SD Card, RCA Jacks
MFT/SYNC has been great so far, hands free calling, Sirius
Front cup holders side by side instead of front/back
Glove box organization

These last two are very minor things, but interesting to me in that they aren't typical in my limited experience. Most cup holders I see these days are the front/back style and there is just something I really like about the side by side look and functionality. The glove box...I have never seen a shelf for better organizing and netting in the door for the important stuff. Just very thoughtful in my opinion. Been plenty of times when I cursed under my breath because I couldn't find papers that I just KNEW were in there.

My 2011:

1. 10 preset buttons on the stereo. That is Awesome. I always had more stations than presets. Now I don't have to compromise I can have them all!!!!!!

2. Very easy and fun to drive.

3. The trunk is great and the seats fold down. I can put my whole mountain bike in there.

4. The Sync works great. I've never had any problems. It's awesome!!!

5. The high beams are really bright, compared to everything else I have had.

My 2010 is a nice car. Doesn't feel too much like an econobox even though it is an S model. Gets good mileage, not real boring to drive. I still prefer driving my f150 though.

4. Car has a decent list of Aftermarket parts.

My Dislikes are -------------------------------------------------------------------

1. I always turn off the fog light switch with my knee when I get in the car
2. The goofy auto door unlocks. everything is linked to the driver door to unlock all doors.

1. the All wheel drive system (whole reason I got the car) handles amazing and has endless amounts of grip!

2. Engine. lots of power and lots of room for more.

3. AC set up love it. love the dual zone and the digital adjustment

4. sync. love all its options and ways to play/store music.

5. ride quality vs handeling. Once lowerd I love how comfortable it is but I can still beat most sedans in its class on the track. stock ride height it was kind of like a boat though.

6. transmission, while I hate that its not a manual for an automatic transmission its very good. Only shiftable automatic I have ever driven that will let you redline it, and won't up shift for you. Shifts are firm and quick. Allthough how long it takes to shift in manual mode leaves a lot to be desired.

7. the ambient lighting is verry cool.

8. back up camera is verry nice.

9. BLIS I don't use it much buts its verry cool to have.

10. has a good amount of room for the kids on long road trips.

11. Cabin is suprisingly quiet.

Now that I've had the Fusion for a few years I'll comment on this.

1. Power- It's not mustang quick but for a 4 door sedan it sure hauls ass. I love the look on peoples face when they donít expect a Fusion to move like that.
2. Handling- Although I can't wait to lower it and install a rear sway bar in stock form it has loads of grip and the lift off oversteer is always fun.
3. AWD- Amazing in the winter especially when my neighbor gets stuck in his STi.
4. Overall comfort- From the leather seats, dual climate control and the way Ford put everything at your fingertips, very good job with the dash layout.
5. TCS/AdvancTrack- Although itís too bad you canít turn off everything with the TCS off it still lets you play and get sideways without getting too out of hand.
6. Transmission- I prefer a manual but it sure is nice to have an auto in traffic. As far as the price range and not being a dual clutch auto it does very well. The manual mode is very good for those twisty mountain roads and I love how it holds its gears.
7. Bells and whistles- I really like the Ford Sync, moon roof, BLIS system, reverse camera, nav, crosstraffic, and hard drive. Wouldnít change a thing.

Those are the ones I pop in my head and Iím sure I could get more in depth with everything but Iíll leave it at that. Great car, although I will be modifying it more leaving it stock wouldnít be the worst thing. The more I drive it the more it grows on me and is starting to develop its own personality/soul.
