Wonderful. I have been interested in the Fusion since it came out. It is well designed, and has proven to be reliable over time. When I am ready to buy a new car, I will seriously consider the Fusion.

It is about time that Ford brought back all production of the Fusion models to USA plants. GM should do the same for its trucks produced in Mexico and processed in Texas.
