Because the 4 cylinder has a standard transmission, which is one of my requirements with purchasing a car. Sorry but I like to have that little bit of control. Even if some say it's not necessary, i still feel psychologically(sp) that I have that control.
i also like manuals but i would prolly go for more power over the control...but having said that i would never buy the fusion since its big and heavy...plus when i test drove it i really wasnt too impressed the handling was ok, but overall it just felt too much like a HUGE car that i dont think id ever be able to get over it...i would go w a focus over a fusion
what kind of price range are we talking? the rsx type-s w the new k20 motor can really move, plus i think they look pretty sexy...i would put it in the tailpipe!
