Not sure if this is the right forum but Has anyone gone from a 5 Series BMW to a Ford Fusion Energi Titanium? I currently lease a 2011 BMW 535i which is on the last 180 days of the lease. I'm looking to save money on my next car, so I am not going to buy a Tesla and so I am seriously considering a 2014 or 2015 Ford Fusion Energi Titanium. I've take two 2014's and one 2013 for test drives and so far I like the car. I wish I could rent one for a week to make my choice easier but I cant seem to find a place that rents them. So my question is, are there any folks in here that have made the switch from BMW to Ford FET? With a fully loaded 2014 FFET I would be saving about $300 a month on payment and then about another $200 on fuel, so that would be about $500 a month in my pocket vs out the door. I know for that I would lose 0-60 speed when getting in on the Freeway but but would be gaining 100+MPGe and a few other bells and whistles like Parking assist and Rear view camera that my current BMW does not have. Then I can also think about the $6000 a year or $18K over a 3 year lease I'd be gaining as well as Car Pool lane stickers. At this point the only thing I think I would lose is that 300HP Turbo engine, the awesome BMW design. But then again I really like the Ford FET interior and exterior as well. The only thing I'm not totally in love with are the rims but I've seen a few ppl swap them out for the Hybrid version rims, which I would also do after 3 months or so.
Looking forward to hearing anyone on their switch so far, so thanks in advance!
