I was pretty active on this forum since 2013 when I was shopping for my FFH, but I haven't been around in a while. I can't believe my beautiful 2013 FFH SE is about to clock 90K miles! 100% trouble-free. I've never had the car in for anything but routine maintenance except for a software update and a recall (for a seatbelt I think?). And my lifetime average over this time is 44.2mpg. My worst fill-up ever was 39mpg, my best was 54mpg. I love this car! But with the warrantee for the hybrid components about to expire at 100K miles, it's time to replace my baby.
I considered all of the mid-size hybrids and went to drive each of them - Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, Lincoln MKZ, Toyota Avalon. But kept coming back to the Fusion, still my favorite.
I finally decided on the 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid in the new Platinum trim. I selected the Burgundy Velvet Metallic paint. Because of the scarcity of Platinum hybrids, I placed a factory order - still got a good deal from my salesman, the same guy from whom I purchased my 2013. Delivery is expected to be in early January.
Does anybody know where to get a shark fin antenna in the matching color? I always meant to do it with my 2013 (Tuxedo Black), but I never did. I'd like to get the antenna before I take delivery so the dealership can install it for me.
Thanks to all, it's good to be back!
