It's a car that could last years upon years if you take the proper care of it.
I personally am not the most knowledgeable about cars, however id say the Ford Fusion I have is rather nice ( especially for being 8 years old). I've only owned it for about 6 months and haven't noticed many problem. Like most automatic hybrids, it has a slower pickup and currently the passenger airbag has a recall ( which I need to go get fixed ), but it has a really nice interior with leather seats, and the front is spacious and not to close/crowding for me. It also has a good sized trunk. Usually I get about 550 or more miles for around $38 when I fill up the tank ( not sure how many gallons, oops). And even though I probably shouldn't be mentioning this, a while ago I lightly rear ended someone that cut me off a light (I didn't break in time), even though it didn't hit hard I felt it was a decent enough hit to leave a mark or dent. But it didn't, which really surprised me, this car is slightly more durable than I thought it would be. Smooth ride most of the time, and it has a good stereo with a rather detailed electrical map.
