Bought mine 3 weeks ago. So far love it. Only thing I do not like is the
fact that if you plug something into the cigarette lighter, when you turn
the car off, the power stays on the cigarette lighter. Wish it would shut
off so I do not have to remember to unplug my cell phone charger. Just a
small gripe though.
???? why is that a problem? Unless it's actually CHARGING your phone
battery, it uses very little current... it would take maybe weeks to run
the battery down.
My wife's has been hooked up to an aux socket for two years
Yeh, I'm a Krusty old Geezer, putting up with my 'smartass' is the price
you pay..DEAL with it!
Yep, if your car battery dies from charging your cell phone battery
something is wrong. My charger has been in that hole for years too. That
little light on the charger is an LED which pulls VERY LITTLE current.
I think I've learned as much as I need to about auto cigarette
lighters and their attachements, including wives. I would like to
hear the buzz about the new Fusion.
I'm looking for a car that's smaller than the Taurus and larger than
the Focus. The Mustang at my age would put me in the Seebring
convertable category as a seeker of lost youth.
Maybe we could get some input as to the Fusion. I notice that the
local big paper -Boston Globe- Ford dealer ads are pushing everything
BUT the Fusion. Some major dealers don't even advertise it. I guess
they're probably trying to get rid of their slow selling, gas
I wrote a review here on the forums a couple of weeks back, after I'd
driven a fusion at my local ford dealer.
Take a look at the older posts by me for it.
in short, it was a very, very nice car. If I were in the market for an
~$20k car right now, It'd be my top choice...unless I got the Mercury.
Have to say, the Malibu and G6 with their new 'value' pricing are
looking pretty strong. Those aren't bad cars at all, and $16,990 for
one is a good deal.
Actually the Fusion etal is selling faster than Ford can build them. They
have an eight to nine week delivery time, with retail sales being given
priority. Dealers do not have any in stock long enough to need to
I can see why they are selling so well. I saw one with the factory
alloy wheels and a the camel metallic clear coat or very light beige.
The car was gorgeous. I have been looking at Fusions closely versus
cars like BMW 3-series and the small Caddys plus other cars. The
Ford's fit & finish look incredibly good and better than some brand new
3-series BMWs and baby Mercs. Someone mentioned the Chevy Malibu and
they look very good as well but the Ford fit & finish are staggeringly
good. I think the small Caddy is nice but the Fusion blows it away in
fit & finish.
BTW - I am a Honda driver but I am looking to replace the Accord. The
Accord LX with an I-4 and 5-speed gets slightly better mileage than the
Fusion w/ I-4 and 5 speed. If I decide to buy a car, I will test drive
both. I heard the Ford is better on the road. I think the Fusion
looks much better too.
I'm not surprised. I gave one a good look over, then a few mile drive
to see how it fits me.
I'm impressed and will try to get a rental for a full test.
We have a Sebring, plus I've looked at the Malibu and Pontiac G6;
no contest in favor of the Fusion.
