Hey guys..
I've been thinking about getting a Fusion for a while now, and when I test drove one this past weekend, there was a problem!

I like to drive leaning on the armrest, but since I am really short (5'0") I have the seat jacked all the way up. :shock: In my case I am so far up the seat SURPASSES the arm rest and there's nothing there for me to lean on!! It just feels kinda uncomfortable with open space there...

Is that a lame reason for me not to buy a fusion?

Yes, very lame. Trust me, you'll regret not buying it, and if you get something in it's price range, nothing matches what you get with the Fusion. You could get a Camry, but who wants a Toyota? You could get a Civic or an Accord, but the way the Fusion looks and drives, it'll blow those foreign cars out of the water. I'm in love with my car, as with everyone else on the board, and I've only had one issue, and that's the popping in the dash, that Ford is working on a fix for. So, I think you should just do it, IMO.

For the price range and the things you get, I was sold the first ten minutes. The seats can be moved, the telescoping steering column moves; I think you can drive-it and get use to-it. I was a pick-up/SUV driver for a long time and I went back to the sedan this past year, trust me I felt weird and I thought I did not fit in the car, but you get use-to-it after the first 1K miles. For under $23K I could not get a better looking vehicle and fun to drive sedan with all the goodies. Get one tomorrow. :D

at first, I had an issue with the armrest too, but after adjusting the seat and pulling the steering wheel back, I found my position.

my friends and family think i'm wierd, but I adjusted the lumbar and the rest of the seat where I can drive with my head against the headrest, it's comfortable!

I sit kind of weird in the car. Lumbar is fully out, the seat is tilted all the way back. Seatback set so my head is on the headrest, like jpilone. I'm as far up as I can comfortably go and the steering wheel is pulled all the way out and low as it can go. It's comfortable to me.... :dunno:
