Yay! We're fans of the Ford Fusion and are glad to see it get some respectable press. We are not fans, however, of Ford's treatment of its vehicles and are greatly concerned that in two years Consumer Reports will be all like, "Why is Ford still squatting out the Fusion?" Ford, we beg you, beeeeehg you to put more energy into the Fusion to ensure it remains a non-embarrassment.
Meanwhile, check out the sidebars on that article to see who is the least reliable. Holy crap, Jaguar blows. And Mercedes-Benz? M-B is on that list so often it should be its own category, "What Brand Not To Buy." Holy crap does M-B blow. M-B blows so badly that it makes Jaguar look like the king of reliability.
That's a snap of the 2006 Ford Fusion. Go Ford!
