I bouhgt my first ford and it was a fusion and i love that car! Its amazing, i plan on staying with ford until i cant drive no more. Fusions are great cars, my only wish is getting a ford mustang but i could never afford one :/, but i keep dreaming!
The center console of the Fusion creates An uncomfortable contact point on my right leg. Slim that portion of the console to prevent it. Go to push button transmission selector to facilitate the change. The current discomfort is so much that I will not buy the current design. You probably need taller people testing vehicle comfort. The last comfortable Ford I drove was my first Taurus without a console. There can be a melding of the two to create a better environment.
