Another excellent review for the AWD fusion :)

It is Otaku, to be sure. But the nitty gritty comes with this paragraph:

"Last year, Ford sold 142,502 Fusions, according to Automotive News. That total pales in comparison to the 163,853 Chevy Malibus, 354,441 Honda Accords, and 448,445 Toyota Camrys sold during the same period. But for a new model that was rather poorly marketed at launch—advertisements that actually say why the car is an alternative to Camry and Accord are only now hitting the airwaves—those numbers conversely have the makings of a surprisingly strong start."

What this says is that the Fusion has yet to be "discovered" by the buying public. It has great potential and is a great car, generally, but has yet to become popular. A Malibu can't hold a candle to a Fusion; neither does the Impala, in my book. Boz

Agreed no comparison between a malibu or impala and the fusion. For that matter it beats the honda and toyota as well. I think it will only get better from here

It's actually pretty good that the Fusion sold nearly as well as the Malibu, considering the Malibu gets the benefit of fleet and rental car sales at a much higher level than the Fusion.
