I think you'll enjoy it. The auto trans on those can be a bit problematic. If you can still get an extended warranty (if you didn't get it already), it may be worthwhile.

Check owners manual about trans fluid change. My Fusion required trans fluid change every 30k miles. It was real easy to change because no filter. Drain plug and fill 5 quarts.

Phew, glad you didn't go with a CC. The TSI engines in those things are abhorrent maintenance-wise. And I'm a huge VW nut. Had a 2010 Passat for a while with the TSI, traded it in after a laundry list of problems came up at about 75k miles and the repair shop was literally out of ideas as to how to fix the intermittent bad misfire it had.

the CC is what i was leaning towards after driving one of them, but the more i read about the fusions, the more i leaned towards one. i think the CC looks better all around and a nicer interior, but love the front end of the fusion.

Nice! Titanium trim level should have some nice creature comforts too!

Fusion Titanium is likely what I'd be going to as well for a new DD.

do you have one? i haven't looked into any performance at all. but i may consider a tune if it's affordable and doesn't require any other mods.

No, but I had a Focus ST so same/similar drivetrain. You can do a simple accessport with off the shelf tune or have someone tune you. Nothing really else required unless you wanted to unleash a little more.

Off the shelf tunes are simple, increase boost in the lower gears while adding some up top. You can change it on the fly too.

Actually, on second hand I just noticed it didn't have one for your car. Let me check with a buddy.

He owns Panda Motorworks in St Louis.

Congrats, I have a 2014 as well. They ride nice but they are a bitch to work on. At least the maintenance stuff I've done.

Confirmed, Cobb is a tuning option. Loved mine
