Just a bit of (probably useless to you) anecdotal evidence, but my parents who have an '08 Taurus talk about the engine in the Taurus all the time (only Sync is talked about more); the smooth torque and the seamless transmission. Given, they have less than 15,000 miles on the car, which they bought last June, but haven't had any recalls or TSB performed on the car... something that couldn't be said of the other car in their garage, a 2007 Honda which has been afflicted with suspension problems that have them on the third set of tires in two years.
I drive an Accord myself, and love it, but if something happened to it, a Fusion would be high on my list based on Ford's recent showings of reliability and engineering advancements, very possibly the 3.5.
#5376 of 5819 rear brake light

yesterday I saw a new black Fusion on the road, and I noticed that chrome piece and the center brake light was ridiculously huge and unnecessary on the trunk lid. And that brake light seemed like an after thought. Just my opinion.

Could one of you answer this question on the Nav unit in the 2010 Fusion. When looking for a place to eat can I click on the POI's and chose restuarants or whatever they call it and then chose type of food or ALL and will it then start giving out a list of places to eat from the nearest to you to farther away or do I also need to know the name of the eating place?
Also can you use the Nav unit as in making changes etc. while the vehicle is moving or is it like GM and require you to stop first?

You must stop to enter a destination but you can do everything else while moving. You can call up previously saved addresses from the address book.
As for restaurants - you can actually just say "I'm hungry" and get a list of restaurants. I believe you can also limit it by the type of restaruant with voice commands as well.

#5380 of 5819 2010 fusion "S" satellite radio add on
Jul 08, 2009 (7:25 am)
I considering a fusion "s" purchase, (like the wheels more than the ones on the se). I don't know if the base radio that comes with it is "satellite ready"..has anyone had a dealer install a satellite receiver to their base "s" model?

I was at the dealership having my transmission fluid changed and decided to walk the lot. Came across a 2010 Fusion Hybrid in black. As I was going over the car a sales person came over of course. I told him right away I was having my 06 Fusion serviced and was just curious. He offered a test drive of the Hybrid. I jumped at the chance. Wow, This car was very quiet, very solid, very well engineered. I could not feel when the engine or the electric engine was on, the only way was the dash readout. The interior fit/finish was superb. If I were in the market, this car would easily be at the top of my list for a replacement of my 06 Fusion. This car is going to be in very high demand.
#5382 of 5819 Fusion vs Milan
Jul 15, 2009 (11:11 pm)
I am planning to buy either a Fusion I-4 SEL fully loaded or a Milan I-4 Premier fully load (both without navigation). Fusion comes out to approx. $26,500 and Milan to approx $27,000. Therefore I am asking, regardless of price, which car is better?
I have done research and the engines, specs, features, and dimensions are the exact same to precise detail (length, width, etc.), but besides for the looks I cannot find any differences between these cars (virtually). I checked out the fusion at several dealerships and its a very well designed car but I am just curious to whether the Milan is any better being that Mercury is supposed to be a more luxury associated brand. In addition, does anyone who has test drove both cars in I-4 version notice any difference between ride quality of either cars (same engine), just curious...though I'll probably find out myself in a couple of days.
If someone could help me out with a comment it would be greatly appreciated.
Also just curious of which car (with same features and all) everyone else thinks is better. The 2010 Fusion or 2010 Milan?

They are built on the same assembley line by the same people and the only difference is in the inside trim and the front end pieces like grill etc. and the rear end tail light treatment. For all reasons they should be the same as far as quality etc. Only reason for picking one over the other would be price ((deal if different dealer, dealer service) and which model you like the best.

Between the Fusion and Milan, I'd consider the Milan to have a slightly more luxury feel and style, and IIRC, option packages are arranged differently between them, but basically, that's it.
Unfortunately, this leads to one of the fundamental problems of Mercury: struggling for it's own identity between the bread-and-butter Ford division, and the upscale Lincoln division. IMO, they should have taken a few models from the Euro line and sold them as Mercury-branded cars from Day One. I'd sure be interested in the Mondeo or the European Focus, and I'm sure that others would be as well.
