"I traded my 2008 Honda Accord LX "
I see alot of people on this site dumping their Accords for the Fusion. I traded my 08 Accord in for a SEL 2.5 about 3 months ago and love it. I took the rebate and was able to get 3.5% interest on a 5 year loan at a local bank. This car beats the Honda in every area as far as I am concerned and even though I was Toyota / Honda for 16 years I will never go back to them again.

Hmm, when you put it that way it does make sense. Why it isn't listed as a rebate on the Ford site, but as cash back makes me wonder.

Could it be that Ford actually makes a better car now? OOPS lets not let that secret get out!
LOL, Wait, LETS!! Enjoy your new Ford, I know I am enjoying both of mine, we fight over who gets to drive which one now.

So I finally bought the, been lurking on here for a wihle. I was in the market for a Fusion, Accord or Camry. The Honda dealer just kinda laughed at me, gave me a "internet price" that was $300 less then the MSRP and was told that was his best deal. $21,400 for a EX manuel. The Toyota dealer was a completely different story, I was given a price that was WAY TOO GOOD to be true. LE with Sunroof and bluetooth for $20,900 MSRP was $24,900. Then Ford dealer gave me a great deal on a SE, with 6spd manuel, with Sync OTD price was $20,050 have to say I love the car, SYNC is great, but make sure you have your iPOD set up correctly. The 2.5l I4 is VERY smooth, the 6spd is good but not the smoothest. So far I'm averaging 31, I do about 80% highway driving. Glad I went with the Fusion..

Congratulations! I'm kicking around for a 6-speed SE with Synch and a sunroof and the appearance package. It's hard to find one to test drive with the stick. Could you elaborate on what you mean by "not the smoothest"?
Also, could you post the RPM's at 65 or 70 mph? Hoping that 6th gear has some nice tall gearing.
BTW, what color did you get?

Yeah another Fusion Family member!! Go get yourself a cheap flash drive from Wallyworld and put all your music on that and use it with Sync. You dont need to worry about leaving the Ipod in the car then.

Thank you, and I was just thinking about that. Will SYNC play my podcast too?
the Engine the 2.5L is this the same engine that is used in the Mazada 3? I have to say this engine is the smoothest 4 cyl I have even driven even at redline.

Color is Sport Metallic blue, excellent color
Not the smoothest, its kinda notchy, but overall I would give it a 8 out of 10.
The 6spd manuel is a close ratio tranmission, at 70 in 6th the rpms are 2500. But like i have posted I'm averaging 31, BTW, the standard wheels are 17x7.5 with 225-50-17, I have michelin Pilots. The car handles EXCELLENT.. Some body roll that will be taken care of with new springs and roll bars the ride isn't harsh (I drove a Fusion with the apperance package it wasn't as smooth as mine)
The dealer in which I bought at had 2 non hybrid fusions, the one I bought the other had the package 202A (sunroof and sync) appearance package and auto. I'm glad I got the 6 spd manuel.
Good luck with your search

19000 miles on an SE, nothing special on options. $18400 out the door, good deal?
