Hmmm,
I may have to give this a try then.

Recall Fix...

Phew, it looks like a couple hundred of our fleet's 2013 Fusions may be on the road soon. A simple software update may keep them from making smores of themselves:

My wife picked her new Fusion up three weeks ago and loves it. Base model with a few options in burgundy with the tan interior. I have yet to drive it. Her whining about the manual trans Focus has finally stopped, as it's mine now. I hardly use four wheel transport, so it should last me a good long time with just 118k miles on the clock. Come spring, I'll detail it well, go over the fluids and rotate the tires.

My wife picked up her new Fusion a few days ago! Unfortunately it got completely filthy on its maiden voyage home. We both love the car. I'll try to post up some better picks after it get its first bath.


These will go on in the spring:

It's a 2001 Ford E150 conversion van. I had a '97, but my ex talked me into selling it. I always regretted getting rid of it. My new, and much improved, wife talked me into getting it. I think she got tired if hearing my sighs every time I saw one. I got it last summer. 82,000 miles and not a spec of rust or a single door ding:

Since your responses in most vehicle threads are negative, perhaps it would be easier for you to tell us what vehicles you actually like
