Hi, I’ve had the Fusion Hybrid for almost 3 weeks now, and I must say
This car ROCKS!!!
In every sense of the word….
Just how COOL can a Hybrid be???
Let me count the ways.
1. LOVE the color (Light Metallic Ice Blue).
It’s the perfect “fusion” of quiet subtlety with relaxed coolness.
2. LOVE the body & styling…
Going on middle-age at 41yrs old, this is my first 4-door sedan…and I was kind of thinking about how it’s time to get a “grown-up” car. But honestly, I feel kind of YOUNG & HIP in the Fusion….especially with the mood lighting, sound system, and the SYNC…
Suddenly, driving a 4-dr sedan, just llike having grey hair, has just become a sign of CHARACTER !!!
This is a much more ECO-Friendly way of handling a MIDLIFE crisis ;o)
3. LOVE the ride & feel of the car.
For me, it’s a great balance between comfort & handling.
4. LOVE the Sound System —> it really really ROCKs.
I recently sat in my 98 Accord to clean it up for the sale. I turned on the music….
Wow, it’s like going from FM (Fusion) to AM (Honda)
5. Love the MOOD lighting…
Light Blue –> mellow
Yellow –> cheerful & happy (it’s my Woodstock” mood)
Dark Blue –> Serious
White –> Neutral.
Pink —> PAAARTTYYYY…with some SERIOUS Wattage !!!
RED —> All REV’ED up but too MPG-conscious to go anywhere fast. OK…I stomped on the gas a couple of times ;o)
6. PICKUP / ACCELERATION….this was a SURPRISE!!!
For those rare times where you need to haul A@# …
Or when you just want to be a KID again & SHOW OFF, I mean …”set the record straight” with the gas guzzling SUVs and monster trucks.
7. LOVE the SYNC…how absolutely COOL !!!
Whenever I show off the car to folks, I always have the SYNC system read back my text message…
the one that says “Happy Birthday to You” (as the Fusion is my birthday present to myself) –> always puts a BIG smile on my face!!!!
And when using it with the USB media…the SYNC has MORE FEATURES than my “sad” little Philips MP3 player.
Now, if you can get down Sync to better recognize some Asian-American names….maybe next generation!!!
8. LOVE the Driver’s Vision Package: BLIS with Cross Traffic Alert, Rear Park Assist, and Back-up Camera.
They have already saved me from “disaster”.
9. LOVE the LCD Instrument Cluster…especially the Engage and Empower.
You’ve just set the Industry’s trend.
10. And last but certainly NOT LEAST –> the HYBRID.
Along with the Instrument Cluster..it just brings out the techno-geek in me to see how much mileage at can get –> so that is FUN.
But I love the FUEL savings.
Congratulations to Ford for building such a COOL, FUN, but DELIGHTFULLY PRACTICAL car!!!
My GRATITUDE to Ford for saving me from being “Prius” practical !!!
Somehow, being “Prius” practical would have just HIGHLIGHTED my GREY HAIR in a very unflattering manner.
Who would have thought?
HIGH TECH, ECO-FRIENDLY…and just plain ROCKING!!!
The “Fusion”…it’s like Albert Einstein meets Woodstock!!!
You may have very well just converted me into a new “Fordie-for-Life”.
