I had a set of Redline Elite hood struts on my 2005 Mustang GT Vert.  They worked great and looked great.  This is good news for all the Fusion owners out there.  Of course, my MKZ already has a strut.  :)

Sorry, no forum discounts guys. Everything is priced on the website as aggressively as possible. There is a built in points system so that you earn discounts(cash back) with every purchase and can use them to save on whatever you buy next.

If I worked on my car myself, I'd love it, but since the only ones who open the hood are the Ford mechanics, I'll keep what I have. Just my opinion...

+1  Why spend the money on hood struts to benefit the dealer?  I can count on one hand the number of times I opened the hood on our 2010 over 3+ years and two of those times were to clean and take pictures before we put it up for sale.

So to you guys that don't open your hood...  How do you check your fluid levels like say, OIL, COOLANT, washers, BRAKE, etc?

I visit my dealer once a year for the state mandated safety and emission inspections.  Otherwise I try to stay away from the place.

Do you change your own oil?  I do on some cars but others I have the dealer do the service. The first few are free on the Fusion anyway.

Oh well...  For 99 bucks, I'll keeping using the prop rod. While they have a certain cool factor, I can't drive down the road with the hood open.  I'll apply the 99 to the Ti LED tail lights for my SE.

Heck, I open the hood all the time so I can take pictures and annotate them for this Forum.....

I am with you on that! I have some house projects that need to be completed more urgently, but upgrading the lights is the first priority on the FFH after them.
