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

1. I don't like that I couldn't get a manual transmission with the V6.
2. I don't like that I bought an SE in November with the "sport package" that was only aluminum wheels and the 6-disc changer, and now they have the "job 2 sport package" which includes fog lights for about the same money.

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

Just two very small annoyances (which I will eventually get over) and are things I had in my previous car (Suzuki Aerio).

No outside temperature display and I really miss the digital speedo from my Suzuki (as ugly as it was).

Also, I find the auto transmission is missing a 'shiftronic' type setting.

[/quote]I have the outside temp display, but maybe it's only with the Auto Temp Control? I think it should be standard on every car.

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

none at all, except the annoyance of the window dots, defying tinting,
but that is a FORD thing, and some other cars as well.

I really don't see the need for the tiptronic, it's not a sports car. although
they should have added a manual option for the V6. but as far as my car goes
there is nothing I don't like, I love the chrome, although it could have been
real chrome, or at least polished aluminum. not the plastichome that they use.

I like 99% of this car but the headlights are gonna get me killed. low beams suck especially the drivers side (Fusion SEL)

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

the door trim pieces that are between the windows, that scratch way too damn easy,
other than that no problems, or nothing else, although I would prefer a throttle cable to
drive by wire. and no Glass or Headlight issues, my lights are ok, I can see just fine at night
with the lows.

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

Before I start, I want to say, I did not buy this I-4 Milan to be a racecar. I wanted a nice quiet four door sedan that had good leg room, ergonomics, a lot of creature features with decant fuel economy and of coarse, pleasing to the eye. This automobile fits that category, very well.
That said, as I have stated before, if I could have purchased this package with a six speed automatic and more final drive gear, I would have. I am still looking for a 40-mpg package of this size, without the complexities of the hi-bird. (Sorry All You Manufactures) I still don’t believe you have pulled all the rabbits out of the hat.
This I-4 engine is what I wanted and for its size, it really produces a lot of power but I need to focus in on one small factor that could have made it a better power package.
It seems to me that Mazda’s first four automatic transmission ratios would have been a better selection, to get the weight of the automobile, moving quicker.

Mazda Ford
3.62:1 3.50:1 First Gear
1.93:1 1.86:1 Second Gear
1.29:1 1.24:1 Third Gear
0.93:1 0.90:1 Fourth Gear
0.69:1 0.69:1 Fifth Gear

3.86:1 3.86:1 Ring & Pinion Final

2.6634:1 2.6634:1 Overall Final

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

Ok, I don't like 3000 rpm at 70 mph, and 3400 rpm at 80 mph. The manual needs a 6th gear, and less of a step between 1st and 2nd gears. Also, it would be nice to have some torque below 1800 rpm. Trying to accelerate in 2nd gear at 1500 rpm can be a scary experience. I want DFI now with an additional 20hp to boot! This car has less than half the displacement of my 1997 5.4L F150 and comes in at 3100 lbs as opposed to my 5500 lb loaded truck. It should, logically, get far more than twice the mpg as my truck but so far it does not. I am only able to pull about 2x the mpg of my 4x4 1997 F150 flareside. Truck = 13-14mpg city or hwy, Fusion = 26-30mpg when driven very conservatively city or hwy.
