Here's your chance 2010 Fusion owners - http://www.fusion41.com
Eight 2010 Fusion owners from throughout the country will be selected to participate in the Fusion 41 program. They will be chosen based on their passion for Fusion and their ability to share compelling information about the vehicle on the Internet. Applicants must have a current Facebook profile with a minimum of 100 friends and an active photo collection.
Each of the eight Fusion owners will then choose four friends or family members to join their team, and each team will be given a 2010 Ford Fusion or Fusion Hybrid to drive in an automotive relay race. To complete the relay, each team member must fulfill an assigned task within 41 hours, tracking competitive variables such as miles driven, stops made or the number of passengers picked up.
The winning team will be chosen based on their ability to complete the activities and provide proof by uploading photos and videos to various social media sites, including Facebook.
The Fusion owner of the winning team will have their vehicle paid off, and team members will win free gas for one year.

Things may finally be looking up for Ford.
"Ford is definitely doing something right," said Rik Paul, the magazine's automotive editor.
At Ford, though, four-cylinder versions of the Fusion and Milan finished second in the family car category, beaten only by Toyota's Prius gas-electric hybrid. The Fusion and Milan outscored Toyota Motor Corp.'s Camry and Honda Motor Co.'s Accord, the two top-selling cars in the U.S. "which many people view as the paradigms of reliability," Paul said.

Things certainly seem to be looking up for Ford, but not if the UAW has anything to say about it...

I can believe it. I had a 2009 Camry Hybrid, and man was that thing slapped together poorly. Wind noise on the drivers side, sunroof sticks, rattles in the dash, 33,000 miles and the seats were showing signs of wear. Yeah, Toyota isn't all its made up to be, the Fusion Sport I now own is built so much better. Its quiet, it rides nice, it handles great, its comfortable, and it doesn't look as if it got punched in the nose.

I have a lot to say about this, but this isn't the right forum so I'll bite my fingers.

Simple - the UAW rank and file do not want to give Ford equal footing with their competitors which is key to Ford getting back in the black.

Before this spins away from the Fusion completely, here's a link to the UAW discussion over on the Automotive News board
