    I went to go look at the Ford Fusion today(SEL model I think, V6 AWD). It looks good, and with my discount I only pay $22,700+dealer fees. Do you guys think this is a very good value? My other option was a Accord V6, but they cost much more than the Fusion.

    Things I was looking for is good handling and brakes, and decent mileage. Do you guys think this car is a wise choice?

    All the new Fords are great. But if you're getting the Fusion, check out the Zephyr too. If you're Z plan or something, then it goes for both companies.

    Also, the Milan and the Five Hundred are similar. But I got the dealer to get me into a new Mustang V6 for $16gs so you gotta get a better deal than that.

    well if you are looking at cars of that class and that price range, how about the new Camry? I just don't like the Fusion. Tail lights look like a cross between the 02-05 civics and the 92-95 preludes :ph34r:

    Look around, everything has the same taillight.

    The problem with these cars, that I have, is that they are all heartless driving appliances. For $22k you could get into a 330C or a MB 230 EggKlasse

    The new generation of Fords are right on the mark, mechanically and design wise. But it may be too late for their financial woes.

    I heard Volvo helped them design it. Anyways, I like the look, the AWD seems great and a little cheaper than getting a new WRX or Evo.

    What's the Zephyr? I googled it but only came up with an old car. The Milan looks like a great alternative but I hate that girll; reminds me of my cousin's Cirrus. Is there any good reason, besides price, to go with the Milan(do they handle the same, same performance, etc)?



    I'll take my chances on this one.

    My mom had a C70 Volvo, biggest piece of shit!! Volvo's suck IMO, the front end on it clunked and banged like it had 300K on it. Car only had 28000 when she got rid of it. They said it was AOK so we said its not OK for us, bye bye Volvo :p

    s40 t5 for the win, or s60r for the real win.

    Volvo has always made good cars. Look at how many volvo station wagons are still running around today. They may not have been sporty cars, but they were excellent cars nonetheless.

    Volvos suck like Fords. The thing is, it's all in the past. Whereas Volvo lost it's really bad reputation quickly, Ford held onto it.
