:shock: Took a trip out on an open highway to an event. This highway is relativliy flat, has a few curves. I was cruising along at about 75MPH when I noticed in my review mirror a Subaru Forester was catching up to me. He pulled along side and it happened to be a turbo version. I glanced over at him and he was laughing at me!! pointing at my Fusion! He kept accelerating and backing down, wanted to race!?? I was ticked off. I punched my Fusion and wow!!! :shock: at 75mph this car took off like a rocket. I am not kidding, I had no idea the car had more to give even at 75MPH. I was up to 100 in no time. I left the Subaru 2 car lengths behind. I backed down to about 75 again, he came again wanted to go again. We went again, same result. I didnt want any tickets or accidents, there was traffic coming up, so I backed down to 75.. He passed me giving me two thumbs up this time.... Man! I love this car... 8)

Scape2,

Glad to hear it pulls so well at 75 MPH+. I'm guessing you have the V6.

:)I know its a big no, no to be racing on the freeway. In fact I'm 41!! and should not be doing this kind of stuff at my age. I'm telling you folks though. The Fusion handled very, very well. No shake, no shimmy. Very smooth and confident at 100MPH+. I did stop when we caught up to some traffic. I pulled into the right lane and let him go. Away he went in his Forester Turbo doing 100+.. I look back at this and I won't be doing it again..

Don't feel so bad - I'm the same age and find that everyone want's to run this thing. The funny part is, I just have the I4 and this thing has smoked quite a few cars on the toll road. Mash the accelerator and the tachometer stands on end, before you know it your doing 100 like it's nothing. I'm not interested in being anyone’s rabbit, so don't bother trying to draft me!

All,

According to various magazine articles, the V6 Hondas and Toyotas both have better 0 to 60 mph times than the V6 Fusion, for whatever that's worth. The Fusion looks nicer, in my humble opinion, but in stock form it's no rocket. Boz
