Great car for the money, and then some!
Bought as a 2009 demonstrator in May of 2009. Never had anything go wrong with it.
This is my 48th car since I've been driving (Started in 1967). I've had many sport cars (European and American), then got married.
Went to mid-size cars (Malibu SS, Chevy II) then to larger cars (Ex:Chevrolet Impala SS, Buick Electra 225).
And with the fuel situation in the late 70's, started buying Japanese cars (3 Mazdas, a couple of Suzuki's, 2 Toyotas Camrys... Very flimsy body's) then Volvos (244DLs).
Went back to American built cars (Chrysler K-car, Saturn, then a few 4X4s - Ford Bronco, then Explorer.) Back to cars with 2 Ford Tauruses. Fords all had transmission problems when they got near 60,000 miles.
Then back to Japanese cars, Suzuki Esteem and then a Verona (What a piece of...)
Then back to American cars, Dodge Caliber and now a Ford Fusion 2009 SE with the 4 cyl. 5 speed automatic.
I think this is about the best car I ever had!!
Everything is there: Comfort, frame sturdiness, easy road handling, roominess, ABS, stability control and loads of other safety controls, plus a good sound system!
My wife is a hard critic because of all the vehicles I've had, and she also thinks this is the best vehicle we've ever had!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
