2010 Ford Fusion SE

Like my colleagues, I enjoyed my time behind the wheel of the 2010 Ford Fusion SE. Last year rumors of the manual transmission Fusion's demise were flying around the Internet and I was happy to hear Ford would be upgrading, rather than killing, the manual transmission in the Fusion when the 2010 cars were unveiled. Of course the actual take-rate for family sedans with manual transmissions is dangerously close to zero, so I would have understood the move if Ford had discontinued the option.

The car we tested is equipped almost exactly as an enthusiast would option a Fusion and, as others have already said, the price is very reasonable. I am obligated to point out that the six-speed automatic Fusion is also a very good car and those who don't want a daily driver with three pedals will not suffer if they choose an automatic Fusion.
