So i got a promotion at work and my new position requires me to travel to amny different offices in a large radius here in Southeast Florida. My '95 Tbird (4.6l) actually does good on the highway (25 mpg), but my wife's 01 mustang GT was wearing her down (my wife hated the car in the last 6 months of ownership).

so recently, I replaced the yellowed headlights on my 'bird with new ones. My wife drove the car one night and about fell in love with it and proposed we trade cars.

So needless to say, I did my research on 4 door sedans.... I narrowed it down to a Fusion.

Last night my wife and I took the ole stang to the Ford Dealer and I drove home in a black SE V6 with the charcoal and camel interior. No real options except for the 6 speaker soundsystem and 16" cast wheels (no hubcaps).

Everyone at work was totally blown away at how cool this car is for the money. I LOVE IT!!

The car is powerful enough for me, smooth, quiet, and it really looks classy.

It may be a match made in heaven!

Now my list of things that need to happen to this car:

rear spoiler on deck lid (it look like one should be there, not a big one, like a shorty that barely comes off of the trunk lid, or maybe one like an Impala SS)
Chrome exhaust tips (the SEL looks MUCH better with the tips, but I can get that done at the local exhaust shop for about $50 MAX, or do it myself for about $20 cheaper)

I'll wait and see what the aftermarket has on store for this car, I can NEVER leave anything stock..

Welcome aboard. I'm sure the aftermarket will have PLENTY for this car, if just looking at the project cars on this board is any indication.

wonder what happened to my avatar? I uploaded it from my home PC, so it's not web hosted and it was 120x100 I think.

Just got my Fusion

Just picked up my Merlot SEL with the four banger and a five speed stick. Love shifting my own gears. Ford missed to boat by not making the V-6 available with the manual. It could be a family hauler and an enthusiast car at the same time.

Anyway, great car. Very comfortable seats with the heated leather. Skipped the sunroof so I could keep the headroom. 17 inch wheels are very sexy, and it sure helps out in the ride and handling department.

Best new car I've ever bought. Fit and finish are excellent. Straight seams and panels, no loose threads, or loose door molding. Very tight car. Great job Mr. Ford!
Any tips on hooking up a MP3 player to the aux button? :D
