I joined FFF a few weeks ago, but just found this forum.
I'm Brian. I am a proud new owner of a 2010 Fusion SEL.
This is my first Ford, and first 4 cylinder car. I grew up with mostly Chryslers in my life, though I remember my dad having a couple Fords throughout the years. Actually, he drives a 2007 Milan now.
This was my pride and joy, my 2004 Dodge Stratus R/T Coupe:
Sadly, this January, she was totalled. I was driving to work in the morning through the national park, and a family of deer ran across the road. I ended up rear ending the car in front of me who had slammed on their brakes.
While I miss the crap out of that car, I figured I would get something a little more practical, while keeping the sporty style that many sedans are severly lacking. I had been eyeballing the Fusion ever since the 2010 redesign, so it was my first choice for a replacement. Though the 2013 is absolutely stunning, the 2010 is more in my budget.
Here's my new ride:
She's a beauty, though I wish there weren't so many Fusions on the road! Seriously, every other car I see around my area is a 2010-12 Fusion. Not too many of the 06-09 ones around, and the new one is just starting to show up more. I am lucky to see another Stratus Coupe on the road. But, I'll learn to live with it.
Once the weather clears up, I'm probably going to do some mods. I really want to get the windows tinted, paint the calipers, and I'm looking at doing the home depot lip. Might also lower the car a bit. I'm happy with the stock rims...they're different and sporty enough.
