Either way I really dont care I just dont want a Mazda. And yes, everyone knows Mazda is Ford. Earlier Fusions use Mazda transmissions. And Mazda used Ford parts and they shared a pick up truck line and yadayada.

I just want the Fusion because I just think its better looking and they seem to be pretty cheap around here. I can get a 11 one for about 11 grand if I get lucky with not to many miles on it. I dont need a car that is insanely fast with all the things the Mazda has. I dont even want it. Besides the Fusions a great car.

That sounds like an SE 5-speed price since they sold new for just over $15K.

Yea I know. Didn't have much of a choice when it came to car shopping this year. At least I can put it in manual and still drive it like one. With out the clutch of course.
