For over 20 years i always said the day I drive a Ford is the day i quit driving. I was a hardcore chevy fan and owned several GM products including impalas, camaros and cobalts.
After a recent addition to my family I decided to start looking at new vehicles. I visited many dealerships and test drove a new Impala, a new Cobalt (horrible) and a new Traverse, which i actually really liked. While attending a cook out at a friends, I overheard his brother saying many good things about the new Ford line up. After speaking with him for a while I found out he worked at Atchley Ford in Omaha, NE. He told me to come in and he gaurenteedme that he would convert me to Fords.
I visited the dealership later that week and Chris had a tuxedo black 2010 Fusion SE waiting for me in front of the dealership. I was immediatly drawn to the paint. The tuxedo black looked like a very expensive custom paint job. I was told it was a 4 cylender and was initially detered. Let me tell you, after a quick test drive, it was obvious that this was no 4 banger i had driven before. It was very “snappy” and had the passing power i needed for my daily commute. The interior was beautiful, the vinyl was soft and the seats were very comfterable.
After a hard night of deligation, i decided I would take the plunge and buy a ..gulp…Ford. I signed the papers the next day and drove home in my new Fusion, smiiling as my on board computer told me i was averaging 26mpg.
Its only been 700 miles but i could not be happier. To all the Chevy guys out there, i would recomend taking a look at what ford has to offer. you will not be dissapointed.
