So if power was so important, why didn't you get the 4.0L Ranger? Over the
years we have owned a number of Rangers. At the moment I own a Frontier V6
and my Mother still has my Father's old 4.0L V-6 Ranger. In a drag race, the
Frontier wins easily. But the Ranger gets much better gas mileage and the
engine works much better when I am actually using the vehicles as a "truck."
Prior to the 4.0L Ranger, my Father had a 3.0L Ranger (automatic). It ws a
very good truck.
The OP was talking about a Fusion, not a Focus. CR rates the Fusion very
highly. They rate the Focus highly (same as they rate the Corolla) - from
"The Focus is agile and fun to drive, and it handles like a sports car. The
seating position is high and commanding, controls are clear and logically
placed, and cabin access is easy. The ride is firm, yet supple. "
Forget about the list price, or even the selling price, what counts is the
TOTAL price that one must pay to drive it home. Many dealers will not even
give one a TOTAL price until after one signs on the bottom line. If that is
the case, take a walk and find a dealer that will.
Are you kidding? Perhaps you can sell your ten year old $1,000 cars but
have you ever tried to sell a three year old car? Nine out of ten that show
up at your door have a car they need to sell before they can buy yours and
they rest can't get a loan
You actually think his three year old Civic, that a Honda dealer, ($10,000
for a car that cost $21,000 new,) who would not even trade at the $13,000
wholesale price, is a car that had good resale value? I guess we can assume
you missed your economic 101 class LOL
