But today I purchased a brand new 2006 Fusion SE. The payments stayed the same as my Focus, and I got a lot more car, with a ton less miles (56mi when I took it off the lot). I've been interested in the Fusion since it came out, but never wanted to pony up. It's kind of a strange and awkward purchase, seeing as I ship for Basic training in a month, and it won't be driven for 5 months, but I love it. Unfortunately, it's an automatic, but I don't think I'd trade it for a 5spd. It's a nice smooth & quiet ride, with power available if I need it. It's a white 2.3L (couldn't afford the V6). I'd post pictures but don't have any batteries for my digital camera, so we'll have to wait for those.
