For the Fusion out of these 3. I have a 2006 Fusion SEL V6, very first year. I now have over 72,000 trouble free, squeak free, rattle free miles. As far as improvements to the Fusion, Yes, Ford listened to consumers and made improvements. I test drove a 2010 Fusion SEL 2.5 and the improvements are noticible. Interior is improved, ergonomics improved, the newer car seemed a bit more quiet, handling also more confident with good feel. Break light moved to trunk area for better visibility. Head rests for back seat passengers, just to name a few more.

Have to disagree on that my friend. The front brakes do most of the work in regular stopping - that's why so many vehicles came with disc fronts but drum rears or smaller rear discs. When you brake it shifts the weight to the front.
This seems to be a recent development (rear brake wear) that has something to do with new parking brake designs and/or stability control.
