Would be nice to have a locking fuel door.. When you spend this kind of money on a car a locking fuel door should be standard.

SEL V6 in silver! Car handles like it is on rails. Smooth, stylish and most of all different.

Re: Things you DON'T Like about the Fusion, Milan, or Zephyr / MKS

Regarding the Fusion-
Dash lighting and lack of on some controls, radio display (aka. looks old and dated) , no traction control offered on I4, no stability offered on any variant, no MT offered on the V6, no leather option on the I4, no heated seat option on I4 or without leather seats, SAB and SAC (side curtain air bags) not standard, no rear cabin reading lights, fit and finish not consistent, some very cheap trim parts (too many to mention), as mention by previous poster regarding the lack of power window one touch up (on both front windows), plus can someone inform me if the power windows(any of them) have the* anti-trap feature. Also can someone let me know if the front passenger seat has a tilt feature(for the bum cushion). Reason I ask is my brother just purchased a MY2006 Freestyle AWD Limited and the front paxs seat does not have tilt.

Last thing is the rear end treatment, it just doesn't balance with the rest of the edgey look. To me it looks like a fancy Nissan Sentra.

1. I wish I could have had gray interior. The Stone we got is too tan for my taste, and I had black interior in our last car and thought it got too hot.

2. No factory Sat radio

3. Turning radius is a little long, not a major problem, but since I'm being nit-picky

4. Poor rear visability. I had to add reverse sensing system since I wasn't comfortable backing it in the garage. I wish they'd have made this available factory.

I miss my glove box light and the lack of rear lighting when you have the sunroof. (Rear is pitch black at night)

As others have already mentioned I'd like to see a locking fuel door and a darker interior, a gray or charcoal and available on the S model. The "stone" is nice but is to tan/light colored.

Not much headroom with the Moonroof.

I think the front seat sits too high.

I don't like highbeam, wipers and turn signals on one stalk.

Rear visibility sucks, they should have a backup sensor option.

Center arm rest seem to be back too far.

No lights in the back with the sunroof.

Having to press the text button on the radio to see song info is annoying. No aux jack for the radio (fixed in 07).

Being able to lower/raise all the power windows with one button would be cool, or with the key (VW) or remote (I think the zepher has this).

Lack of daytime running lights.

I hate hood props.

locking gas cap would be nice.

Manual tranny in the V6 would be sweet.

Another 30 lb-ft would be nice, but like I said in the "What I Like" thread, the 6 spd transmission does a great job of getting the most out of the engine. I want a tiptronic feature so I can shift my own when I want to. Rear wheel drive would be great (but it's never gonna happen). The recline adjustment for the driver seat should be electric. More interior storage space- I would prefer the storage that's on top of the dash to be on the botton- under the AC. I-pod jack on the front of the stereo unit. Stronger headlights and locking fuel door.

bitdrift,

Have you lowered the seat all the way? I've tried the seat in different heights and it certainly seems like it'll fit a a lot of different height drivers. How tall are you?

Re: Things you DON'T Like about the Fusion, Milan, or Zephyr / MKS

COS- your post reminded me of one more. The seatbelt needs to be anchored higher up on the B-pillar. The seatbelt pulls against my left shoulder and after several hours in the car, my should is very sore. I had the same problem with my Focus. My seat is as low as it will go and the seatbelt anchor is at the top- still not much relief. I'm 6'3", so I doubt shorter people have the same problem.
