Well, it's gone...

So I traded my 06 ZX5 SES with 121k for a 2006 Milan Premier with 49k.

I could have gotten a newer car with less amenities for the same price but I really miss having the nicer things and didn't mind a little age to get it.

I do miss the Focus a little but the Milan is so much smoother and is a manual so it's still a little fun.

Plus, the wife traded her Focus in a few months ago for her now HHR so we are Foci-less.

I will be spending some time over at the Fusion forums now though.

Great looking car, very low kms. Cars like that are pretty comfortable vs the Focus.

Is it the v6?

Thanks. It has quadruple the comfort the focus had.
No, it has the 2.3 I4. I drive a 70 mile round trip to work and back so it needed to be as fuel efficient as possible.

Yeah thats good, the 4cyl is the fuel efficient way to go, Im really into fuel economy now.

4cyl Fusion is 160hp thats still a lot of power, and like you said save at the pump.

Enjoy the car, its look slike your trim is nice too, lots of features.

LOL it's not a lot of power. The Fusion/ Milan is a heavy car. It takes a lot more force to get going...IMO the 2.3 liter is just barely adequate. It is by no means quick. Mine has ALL of the power mods available for the 2.3 and the day to day driveability is much improved, BUT a street demon it ain't...
