First hybrid purchase was this weekend. Little back story here though. Last week, I was contacted by a local ford dealership about a 2015 Ford Fusion Titanium Energi they just got. Went and looked at it, and fell in love. Magnetic with soft ceramic leather interior. 12,500 miles for $25,800. Told the guy, I would be taking off on Friday to buy the car. 5 minutes from the dealership on Friday, guy calls me and tells me he sold the car Thursday night. Needless to say I was PISSED.
Saturday morning I expanded my search, and while the energi is a very very nice car, it was outside of my price window. I was looking at the Fusion Hybrid SE with leather, and the sport wheels and spoiler. No one, and I mean no one had that combination in stock. Search went to Baltimore, and found a BUNCH of Titanium Hybrids at Koons' Ford at very good prices. Made the trip down there (about 75 minutes) and looked at one. Just had to decide on the Color.
Choice was Energi with Soft Ceramic leather, or the Tri-White with Charcoal Leather. Wife, daughter, father in law, sister in law all liked the white better. Bought it, and drove it home.
One thing that struck my attention was how that car used almost a half tank of gas to drive about 100 miles on I-95. Didn't expect that...at all.
Now, I'm looking for an app to keep track of my mileage similar to the one Ford has for the Energi. Not sure if there is such an animal. Getting home tonight from a quick trip to the store, we're at 32.7mpg, 268 miles to empty.
