Overall, we love this car. It's very comfortable, has all the mod-cons that we would ever want (especially heated seats, good A/C, nice sound system, back-up camera, and a sunroof), lots of room, and easy on fuel. LOVE the pre-sets for the driver's seat since this car is driven by my daughter and me as well as my wife. We each have preset stored so there's no more grousing about "who moved the seat?" Very solid car - when you close the doors it sounds like a car and not a tin can. Huge trunk. Drives nicely and is very quiet on the road (although the brakes are quite a bit more sensitive than what I'm used to in my truck).
This car is solid. We used Insurance money from a wreck to put a down payment on this car (about 35%). It was a great option. I'm 6'4" and have long legs, and this car has a lot of leg room for the driver or the passenger. When I move the seat all the way back, people can still sit behind me. The trunk is a little smaller than our previous car (Toyota Avalon), but it is plenty big enough for us. It would comfortably fit 2 large suitcases and some smaller bags. It handles very well and brakes smoothly. The AC/Heater work very well, and I enjoy the temperature control options. We get about 25 MPG in the city and well over 30 on the Highway. It's also the first car I've owned with Bluetooth Audio, so piping in music/calls from a phone is easy.
I have had my car for a year now. When I was looking to trade in my old car a co-worker of mine has a brother who works for Ford Corporate and they told me out of all the cars/trucks they make, the best was the new (2013) Fusion. So, I purchased a 2013 Ford Fusion SE EcoBoost. I love my car! I wasn�t sure I would but I do. It drives great, I feel safe in it. The standard options that came with it are perfect for me. I get compliments all the time about my car. Most people seemed shocked it�s a Ford. It�s gets great gas mileage which has saved me some money. I would recommend this car to friends and family. This is the 3rd car I have bought from Car Max and I have had a great experience all three times!
