Ford Fusion and Taurus

Post  69F100 on February 8th 2015, 10:12 pm

I have been looking at a 2010 Taurus SEL with the 3.5 and Fusion with a 2.5 I believe but it is not a turbo, just wondering the good and bad on them. The two I am looking at is only $1500 different in price I myself like the Taurus which is more plus bigger the wife like the Fusion only thing I don't like is the 4 cylinder.

I got my wife a 2012 fusion with everything except sunroof. It has plenty of room for my kids in the back and plenty room up front plus the trunk is huge. I didnt like the 4cyl it dont have near the ass the 3.0 ours has. The handling is awesome and is all around a great car. Last may we went on a trip and it got 28mpg with the cruise on 80.

I've been seriously considering picking up a Fusion for my kid that turned 16 back in Sept of last year. He goes off to college in less than 18 months

I bought him a pretty much stock 94 Lightning a few years ago,..... BUT,.... unfortunately,.....his driving skills leave a lot to be desired. Rear wheel drive, V-8, 4:10 gears and a new, inexperienced driver is going to be a recipe for disaster. Not to mention the MPG is going to suck when he starts putting down a bunch of miles to school.

I found an 08 Fusion with 34k on it that a little ol' lady has (actually a 90 yr old man),...... BUT,.... they want a bit too much for it,.... IMO.
Had it listed for 10,800,.....said he'd take 10. I'd be a buyer at 9k,....but not that much.

own a 2011 taurus sel 3.5

my fiance drives it daily , great car nice and plenty of room . 3.5 has plenty of power for the car to do its thing , its no eco boost but think its 270-280 hp if i recall

only complaint is backing the damn thing up , the quarter panels are big and high and the rear windshield is small . Im used to it now but its not the greatest in that aspect .

we have 60 k on ours , has a good commute daily with it and have no real complaints

That is one thing I noticed when I test drove it told the wife last night she going to have to be super careful backing it up I think it has backup sensors just have to make sure they say on.

Bought my wife a 2012 Steel Blue Fusion last week, she LOVES it. She's only 5 feet tall and it fits her to a "T". Only problem is the 2.5, but it's not too bad, with a decent passing gear. Rolling Eyes . Her 'other ride' is an '08 Sportrac so she loves how the Fusion handles. I like it myself...she let me drive it once Very Happy .

BTW nice ride 69F100 Cool .
