I mourn the fact Ford no longer makes this beauty
Added: 25th of November 2018
I bought my first Fusion second hand in 2004 due to the fact that Fiestas were too expensive. This beauty was cheaper because it wasn't as popular. I love 'boxy' cars. The Fusion had a wheel at each corner, fabulous visibility right around the car for parking, you could judge within an inch where the back was. The interior was spacious for such a small car and it NEVER, EVER let me down. In 2013 I bought another; a 2010 plate. My partner is still driving my 2003 plate: no rust on the bodywork and we haven't spent anything apart from annual servicing & tyres - EVER - well maybe a clutch due to my stop - start commute to work, which probably burned the first clutch out. These were amazing cars. OK, not 'sexy' or fast or desirable if you want to show off, but I have never had a car I loved so much - and I have owned high spec Saabs and an Opel Manta. I'm so sorry Ford don't make it anymore. I think there was further mileage for it, why didn't they modify and continue, like the Fiesta? Probably because people didn't love it like I do. So, the 2003 plate we own is getting old (still starts first time!), so we're thinking of something newer. I want boxy, but boxy appears no longer to exist. Please Ford, if you produce a beauty, don't dismiss it so readily, you have customers who want to keep on buying it I can't be the only one!
