    More pics tomorrow after I clean it up. First impression is that it is really quick for what it is. Ford really did not market this car well or they would have sold a lot more! These are really hard to find! Anyway, itís certified preowned so It has a 6 year 100 k mile power train warranty, 1.49% financing all for 21k. IMG_0533.jpg

    Well, I have to say there is a night and day difference between my old Fusion and this one. It's amazing. Runs really well, handles nicely, and the AWD is great! The main reason I got rid of my 14 is because it was FWD with the 2.0 EB. it was terrible in the dry, wet, or snow. I can't tell you how many times I got stuck in the snow with that. All I really wanted was AWD but the price difference between a Sport and other AWDs was minimal. One top of that, it has every option except self parking. The only bad thing about Sports is they are hard to find like I mentioned before. I found this is Charleroi (Davies Ford). the next closest one was in Cleveland. I am happy with my purchase and hope to be able to hold on to this for a long time!

    Oh, and to update anyone inquiring about the MPG (Somethingclever :)), I am getting 21 with city driving only. That is about the same as my old Fusion (and I have been hammering on it). I guess the bigger motor does not have to work has hard on these damn hills!
