Got a 2006 Mustang GT. The Fusion was great but I am used to driving a rear wheel drive car with a stick shift.

At least you kept it in the family. :) I would love to have a Mustang again (owned 3). But, my lifestyle and budget requires one four door car. Congrats and enjoy the Stang!

I'm getting rid of mine most likely next year. The Fusion I bought is a POS and it's a pain to work out of. I've decided to buy a sports car and a throw away car instead of one nice daily driver like a Bimmer. A Fit/Yaris would do everything I need in a daily driver/work car, I'm not sure about the toy but I'll probably go with Foose Mustang or a Boxster/Cayman because I have accounts at both local Porsche dealers. I drove an 05 GT and loved it but I could see myself dumping a ton of money into mods for it, which is why I'd rather buy a Foose which is complete out of the box.

BTW, post some pics of the stang!!!

Why is your Fusion such a POS? And why take the hit on the depreciation for your Fusion so soon and then have to buck up for the price of a new Yaris or Fit? I think the average 1 year depreciation on a Fusion is estimated at $7k over sticker (Edmunds.com). Seems like keeping the Fusion until it is out of warranty might be a more economic way to go in the long run, unless you absolutely can't stand to drive it anymore. Perhaps the Fusion should be your throw-away car? The Mazda sedans seem to hold up well over time as far as engine / tranny combinations are concerned. Mine is by no means perfect but for the price I paid, it gets the job done. I have some amount of dashboard poppnig and such but it is nothing that I can't live with.

I didn't even realize I was driving a sub-par car. Thanks for clearing that up! :lol:

If you can drive a sub par car than more power to you.

Damn, I guess we all are stupid asses then, :dunno: and should shut this board down,
if it's a sub par group of cars then we don't need to be here anymore. case closed,
lets all sell our cars and get a damn Fit or a Yaris, where we all can play clowns at the
circus and cram ourselves into one.

well said let's go buy a used Yugo. :sarc: :boink: :irock:

power to the micro machine rice burners!!!! :bigok:

I don't think so. A product built by anyone manufacture is not always going to make everbody happy. The only thing one can do, if he is not happy, is to move on to something that makes him happy. Thats the beauty of this Country.

I waited along time for Ford to build an Automobile like this and so far, I have no regrets. It just does the job, that I need it to do.

I can tell you all that one can pay alot more money, some where else, and get less of an automobile.

my point, I love GM's but not every car I like, and I really don't like Ford but I love this car
no problems, nothing at all to complain about. one guy gets a lemon though and suddenly
all Fusions are junk. I like cars from almost every company, but there are those that I just can't
stand.

like my Ranger, I said mine was a POS, not everyones.
