I plan on keeping mine forever. If something ever happens to it I will not hesitate on the 2013 fusion though. Amazing....
This is the MRT version

I can understand that. Glad you kept it though! haha. There's just something I like about the second gens body style. Not as much stock but when a few mods are done to it they can look really great. I was at a ford dealership today and was looking at an ST. It looks like a great car, but I just like the look and feel of my car more.

Just sayin'
I didn't mean it literally. That being said, there are lot of regulars in the second gen chats that have sold in the past few weeks. Just wondering where this trend is coming from or if I'm missing something important. haha.


Also, the new fusion definitely is sick. I can't wait to see what some more people do with it!

And that you can afford the mods also.

I married into an '09 SE and it was a solid trouble free car for the 3 years and 33,000 miles we drove it but I needed something more sporty and fun to drive and with our 2012 SE my wife hasn't looked back and she loved her '09. The MK2 is a solid car but not a starting point for me to want to throw mods on it.
