2015 Mazda 6. Reason: Mazda was too small for my larger stature. And right after buying the car brand new in 2014, the dealer in my city shut down. No warranty service locally. Had to drive 90 miles east or west for warranty service. Intolerable!

 

The Fusion is much more luxurious and lots more room. Having that preset for the driver's seat is awesome! And Ford dealers are everywhere in case we need warranty service.

I traded in an 09 Milan Premier AWD Tuxedo Black with 72K miles. Probably the best car I've ever owned and I've been buying new Ford products since 1966! My only "lemon" was the 1st year 86 Mercury Sable with all kinds of transmission problems. If my new Fusion is half as good as my Milan was, it will also be a great car! We love this car!

I still have nightmares about my (new)1986 Sable. ;)

Even though that car returned to the dealer For repeated transmission problems, I still hung tight with Ford products! I turned it in for an 87 T Bird Turbo Coupe. That was a fun car but not a very good family car so I turned it in for a Continental Signature which served me very well.

I traded in a 2004 Hyundai Sonata V6 with 172000 miles on it. That was one awesome car that treated me well for a lot of years.

A failing  2003 Trailblazer LTZ with about 160k. Decided to put a down-payment on something newer rather than rebuild the AWD system.

1994 Mazda MX6 LS. I love that car. It cornered like the tires were glued to the pavement, it accelerated hard to redline, got decent mileage and attracted all sorts of attention, though it was hard to find in a parking lot (it was so low it disappeared amongst all the tall cars and SUVs.) But with almost 275,000 KM on the clock the body was shot, so bad that it couldn't go on a hoist any more, and with more than two people in it it was at best cramped and at worst torturous. My 2007 AWD has similar performance, FIVE seats (not 2+2) and doesn't fishtail at speed on loose gravel, so it was a good choice.

 

Still...

Depends on how you look at it..

 

The last car I drove as my daily driver was my 2003 Mercury Sable LS Premium, which was my only car for about 4 years.  The wife decided that she did not like it any more, so I bought a new 2014 Nissan Altima in March 2014, and sold the Sable in June at about 186,000 miles.

 

Drove the Altima roughly 80 miles round trip to work, daily, for a couple months and realized that I would be loading up a new car with over 20,000 miles a year, so I decided I should buy a 2nd car to make my new daily driver.

 

.. and that's where my 2010 Fusion came in.  I found it in July 2014 at my local Ford dealership with just under 178,000 miles on it.  They were asking about $7,900 but I talked them down to $5,800.

 

SO I guess you could almost say it replaced 2 cars, but in my mind, it replaced my 2003 Sable LS as that was the DD car.

I traded in my 2014 Fusion S with the 2.5L 4 and 16 inch wheels to my current 2016 Fusion SE with the 2.0L Ecoboost. In fact, I traded in a 2011 Fusion S for the 2014.

 

Things I will miss about the 2014. Can't think of anything.

 

Things I won't miss are, no XM Radio, cloth seats (always having to clean), 16 inch wheels.

 

I have really enjoyed the 2016 since I've had it.  This is a car I will keep for a long time.

I've had my Fusion since June 2016, just turned over 9000 miles and couldn't be happier. I traded a 2013 C-Max Energi. I took a 3K spanking on the trade, but I have no regrets. The Energi was a good car, but it's a "specialty" car and didn't fit my long term plans. I will be moving to Phoenix next January and I wish I had done more complete research on battery depletion in hot climates before I purchased it. I was also concerned about Ford's long term commitment to the current battery technology with new systems schedule to be unveiled in 2019/2020. My Fusion is far superior in ride, comfort, quietness, and options. I just returned from a round trip from Mpls. to Phoenix and averaged over 32 mpg's for the entire 5 week trip and with a 8-10 mph wind assist, topped out at 41.3 at 75 mph driving across W Texas and I average between 30-32 mpg's on my daily driving. Yes, I averaged 60+ mpg in the Energi, rarely used the ICE on my daily drives and only went to the gas station every 3 months or so to maintain between 1/4 and 1/2 tank, but it took a lot of brain power to maximize the Energi's potential and if there's one thing I know about myself, the less brain I have to use, the less trouble I get myself into.   Attached File  IMG_0515.jpg   55.07KB   0 downloads

I traded in a 2012 Mazda 3 S GT with 150K miles on it for a used 2015 Titanium 2.0 ecoboost with 39k miles on it.

 

Things I'll miss:

HID steering controlled headlights

Hyper responsive steering

 

Things I won't miss:

oil changes ( Car came with free lifetime oil changes )

Road noise ( I blew a Bose speaker turning up the volume just to hear phone calls on bluetooth )

Crappy navigation

Useless voice commands

Replacing the key battery every 6 months

replacing tires every 30k miles. ( Tires rotated every 5k miles but it ate them like nothing ive ever seen before )

Did I mention the bluetooth dropped every 30 minutes....

I parted with my '95 Subaru Legacy Wagon LS 2.2 opposing flat 4 cyl.

 

Things I miss: Not having to worry about putting another dent or ding in it.

 

Things  I won't miss: Putting in 2 qts of oil a week and filling up every other week. Exhuast smell. Leaks (under the car and in the car) Losing fuel from my perforated fuel filler neck. Wondering if my car will run until my next check. Not having a working a.c.

2003 Ford Taurus which, albeit in great shape, was a turd of a car. As a college student with no credit and no option for co-signing, it was a credit builder car. 

 

Sold it to my brother after getting my '12 fusion. He then preceded to immediately crash it (the taurus).

1996 BMW 328I with 135,000 miles on it.  Starting having a lot of electrical issues.   My 2013 Fusion Titanium also has had some electircal issues too.  Tailout burned out, a/c issues, and now parking sensor issues.

 

My 2009 Acura TSX with 181,000 miles on it has been running great ever since I bought it with 21,000 miles on it.    Next car will be an Acura.  :)
