I've had them for rentals, both 4-cyl. & 6-cyl. The 6-cyl definitely had more grunt but not tremendously so. In other words, the mileage trade-off might not seem worth it over the 4-cyl. for a little more speed off the line. You might suggest she drive both before buying.WarDawg said:My wife is getting a new car. Her money . She wanted me to check out the Fusion V6 for her. Yall have any take on this vehicle. Thanks WarDawg
Wow! What is your normal daily driver? A Porsche with huge Brembos on it? :grin:Armed Ferret said:I had one for a rental while my car was getting hail damage repaired.
It was free (thanks to insurance), and i still detested it. The steering was clunky and unresponsive, it had about the same acceleration as my 1986 ford tempo i had in high school, and the brakes faded horribly in stop-and-go traffic in Omaha and I was forced to take the curb twice to avoid rear-ending someone.
Have her go drive a Subaru! They run forever and are very safe cars! I just drove a new Forester sport version and it was fast as hell! Also they are good all year round with the all wheel drive system!WarDawg said:We just got back from the Ford/ Toyota, Honda dealerships. She is hooked on the Accord V6 . Not to bad at around 30 MPG . But the price of the car is up there. It's got alot of the bells and gadgets though . I'm going to dig deeper for her . Thanks for yalls replys, WarDawg
