My car is white and has a cloth interior.

I bought this car used. Initially it worked great but there were some interior design damages from the previous owner that took me a long time to get fixed. I also ran into some issues when it came to the dash lights coming on. My tire pressure sensor blew out on one of my tires right as I was going on a long trip, which made traveling difficult. On the plus side, this car is super comfortable and when it does need to be brought in to get fixed it does not cost much. The only big issue I have is the fact that it is white and that is problematic for living in the city and having to park under trees. I am very pleased with how the gas mileage is as well. I was nervous initially, because I have to drive on the interstates most of the time, but I never have to spend a ton of money on gas, which is super nice in this economy. I also really enjoy that the interior is made of cloth. As someone with sensitive skin, I found that the cloth seats really helped my driving, especially when it comes to driving in the winter. Being from Minnesota, I have also found this car to be fairly reliable in the snow and on ice, which was my biggest concern overall when buying a car. I have gotten into a few accidents over the last two years with my car, which were due to weather related incidents and other cars not necessarily knowing how to control themselves when it came to ice. We had a huge blizzard back in April which initially was concerning, but my car was able to pull through and get me home safe and sound.

2008 Ford Fusion AWD with sel package.

The car is all wheel drive which is very handy in our region as we do get some snow in the winter. It gets decent gas mileage and is fairly comfortable for short trips. We have found that for longer trips we would prefer something with a bit more comfort. We often drive for several hours at a time for work and end up traveling home late at night after long days. Sometimes my husband and I will take turns driving while the other tries to sleep, but we have discovered that our Fusion is very uncomfortable when trying to catch a nap during a trip. As far as performance, the power and handling are very good. The car has been pretty reliable with the only mechanical problem having been, unfortunately, a costly one. The computer system had to be replaced and that cost us over $1, 500. 00. We have the sel package and love the heated seats! The fog lights and sunroof are nice additions as well. There are plenty of interior storage compartments and a sizable trunk. For the tech savvy folks, the sync system is great as well!

My car has pretty good miles per gallon and can hold 13-15 gallons, so I get about 380 miles to empty, give or take some.

I bought my car used. I like that it is an automatic and has much better gas mileage than my last car. I love the amount of trunk space I have and that my children's car seats can fit comfortably in the car. I like the cold A/C and the keyless entry. I do not like that there has been an issue with the dashboard and that it is peeling up in multiple areas. I wish the car was a little bigger. I like that the driver seat moves automatically, but since it's an older car I worry that when the motor goes out I won't be able to adjust my seat.
