Congrats. The Fusion is an excellent car. We had a 2007 and now have a 2010.

My wife traded her 2005 Dodge Magnum RT for an 2012 Kia Optima EX Turbo. I wanted her to get a Fusion, but she liked the Optima. Does it handle better than the Kia?

In my opinion the Fusion is night/day better than the Kia. Performance wise and fit/finish/overall quality. My gf just bought a brand new 2011 Fusion Sport and this car is far superior to anything asian in the same price point. The Toyota corolla was a joke. The mazda 6 was a joke. She took her mom to Kia and Hyundai (I didn't want to get the stink on my shoes) and I'd put it better than the VW Jetta we test drove too. Better resale value than the Kia too.

Kia and Hyundai do a good job of copying other brands, but at the end of the day they just aren't quite "there" yet. It's like going to the guy on the street corner who sells "Bolex" watches and "Oak1ey" sunglasses. They look like it should be legit, but just aren't the full deal.

To the OP, congrats on the Fusion. you will love it.
