Re: 06 Ford Fusion

If it's a Ford, I'd buy it without any reservations.

Isn't this what ND4SPD has? Older though. Oh and I would run the other direction from that car.

Re: 06 Ford Fusion

Nd has a Ford Focus it I'm not mistaken.

Guy on Jody's APA team just bought one yesterday and seems to be crazy about it, he says he re-organized his list to:

1.) His son
2.) His car
3.) The wife

Re: 06 Ford Fusion

I'm starting to think I need to clarify my earlier statement.
Sarcasm. That is all.

It's a Mazda 6, but uglier. Probably not a bad car.

And then there's this asshole...

I'd just buy whatever car you had before you traded it in for the Fucus.

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.

Re: 06 Ford Fusion

there has been plenty of reviews on the Ford Fusion just google it or hit up edmunds.com. Yes the chassis is a Mazda6 but if you look closely that chassis shares alot of the similarites of a Volvo, that's because Mazda, Ford and Volvo devloped that chassis. Ford's Fusion rides a bit softer than the M6 to appeal to Americans more. I've driven all of them the Milan, Zeyphr and Fusion, all 3 are great cars. My only gripe is that they could use a bit more HP, but then again what car couldn't. If I had to choose one I would take the Milan, more stylish than the Fusion and the interior is a bit more dressed up.

As for the Focus comments, not sure what model you have but I had one for 3 years and the car was pretty much rock solid. I'm going to guess your's is an 02, for some reason they did have problems that year. Just curious how much did you pay for that Focus? 13,000? Really what do you expect when you buy a brand new car for as much as a motorcycle... a linclon? Come on.

I have an 05...and I really don't expect much other than the fact that a car with less than 30k miles not keep me guessing whether it'll start in the morning. I would also expect Ford to honor the warranty which they've provided with the car, find whatever is wrong and fix it instead of telling me that there's nothing wrong and refuse to service the car. But I guess that's too much to ask for a car that only costs as much as some motorcycles.

So you're saying that because it's cheap he shouldn't expect it to be reliable?

If Ford and GM could build reliable entry-level cars they could be making customers for life out of early 20s buyers like Z, instead of driving them away permanently.

And what makes you so sure that a Lincoln is any more reliable than a Focus?

Do you have a blue oval tattooed on your ass?

And then there's this asshole...

Re: 06 Ford Fusion

Well my suggestion is to try another dealer for service and report the one your currently dealing with. Ford will honor the warranty it's the dealer that doesn't want to.

phobiaphobe, your right they should be reilable, but you cant expect the world for a cheap car. If you do expect that, then go tell the line works to work for 10 bucks an hour! As for a Lincoln, you do know they are number one in customer satisfaction beating Toyota, Honda, etc and are superior in quality to a true Ford product so yeah they're better.

Re: 06 Ford Fusion

I've had two separate dealers tell me that. The instruction came from Ford who put it into my car's Oasis profile.

Re: 06 Ford Fusion

I'm sure that's what all of the execs think at Furd, it's a cheap car what do you expect?

Line workers? Who gives a **** about the line workers. I care about my money, not their's.

Let me let you in on a little biz secret. Cheap cars like the ****-us are commodity items, that is, all car makers do them. When you're competing in a commodity market, price is the #1 factor. To the consumer, failures of the car and warranty, add to the price. There is also customer loyalty. ND is a young consumer Ford has just made sure won't ever buy FoMoCo again. He will also talk poorly about Ford to everyone he knows. What stings the most about something like this, is that he could've bought the same basic type of car from another company, had no trouble, and spent less money.

Ford would weather trouble in their trucks much more easily. The truck segment is a consumer that is paying for a vehicle that has far less competition.
