    My car

    I LOVE IT. IT'S GREAT FUN. TRENDY TO LOOK AT AND A DODDLE TO DRIVE. I LOVE THE HIGH SEATING AND AND THE VISIBILITY IS BRILLIANT.

    BEING SHORT, IT'S MADE FOR ME. IT'S SLOW TO GET MOVING BUT ONCE GOING IT'S NIPPY ENOUGH. THERE'S LOTS OF SPACE INSIDE AND A HUGE BOOT.

    ALL THE CONTROLS ARE WITHIN EASY REACH AND IT HAS THE FEEL OF A 4X4 INSIDE. OVERALL, IT'S A GREAT CAR FOR THE PRICE. ALSO ON THE FUSION THERE ARE LOTS OF EXTRAS INCLUDED. BRILLANT.

    My car

    Very pleased with all aspects of the car. The equipment spec is excellent. The driving position is high with great visibility, comfort and space. The handling is good with responsive steering. The diesel engine has good acceleration in lower gears. Overall very pleased with the Fusion.

    My car

    Probably the worst car I have driven.

    The interior feels flimsy, cheap plastic. The seats are small, hard and too high, and there is not enough room behind the wheel.

    The steering is slow and uncommunicative. The engine is overworked, noisy and prone to stall.

    The brakes are feeble - gave me no confidence at all, especially with that steering. The equipment is poor. The body is also lightweight and tinny.
