4 wheel disturbance in the Force

Well the 127 mile round trip commute and Fuel prices that seem to want to stay over $3 gallon here in Kalifornia, pushed me into getting rid of the F150. Though I commute most days on 2 wheels, I hated the Delta Fog and really don't enjoy the rain of winters here.
So after a long vehicle search and some soul searching I decided to I wanted to buy American if at all possible. They do seem to be testing better and they really feel as good or better than many of the imports.

Introducing the new 2010 Ford Fusion with the voice activated sync system. I like the looks, feel and Love the 34MPG! The discounts and rebates were a nice bonus also...
I figure in the Winter I will save over $200 a month on fuel over the truck.

So can I wave my flag proud as I know I helped the American worker and our economy..........

Well done John! I would bet those rims and tires aren't stock though...

Nice looking!

In that John is not doing his part to support the oil companies, I felt it was my duty to raise their profits to the level of a 3rd world country with:





In all seriousness, it's great being able to get away in our new home on wheels. This weekend we head to Plymouth for a few days.

Re: 4 wheel disturbance in the Force

Thanks All and yes I did wish to buy from the Privately owned American Car company. The rims and tires are not stock, they were a little added enticement to get me to buy.

Hal, I thought you would like this one. I took the picture with my cell phone so it's not that great, It reads Snyc Powered by Microsoft. So I'm just wondering how long it will take before the car crashes it self and I have to close the windows to restart it.

Talking Re: 4 wheel disturbance in the Force

So John, does it have those famous three keys: Contol-Alt-Delete?

Nice wheels even if it doesn't have the 3-key salute capability!

Very nice looking car John

34MPG sounds amazing, that's just 6-8 less than our big bikes. I'd be interested in hearing after a few weeks how close to that you get.

Re: 4 wheel disturbance in the Force

I wonder why the Microsoft Sync car has an apple logo on the windshield?

Re: 4 wheel disturbance in the Force

Keep us posted on how the sync works and how the car in general holds up.


My Focus Wagon has 158K on it and it still runs just fine.
