Ford Fusion Hybrid Electric Vehicle
The boys are getting used to our ‘borrowed cars’ and they even humour me by describing what they like as we drive. The big hit will always be the ‘tracking device’ (GPS) but with the Ford Fusion Hybrid, they added another item to their top 10. The sleek lines of the Fusion made us think that the car would sound like a souped-up sports car when the ignition was engaged. But no. Silence. The only sound was from the back seat. “Mommy, is it going? We’re not going to make it to school! The car doesn’t work!” Like something Q would have designed for James Bond, we could sneak up on the least suspecting person. He he.
Trunk-wise there was plenty of room for our masses of sporting equipment and groceries, though I still argue that I need a larger vehicle to house it all. My epiphany came when we filled the car before returning it. I drove all week. And I have never saved so much money on gas. In the course of a year I estimate that I could save enough to purchase about 91 pairs of shoes. Now that’s speaking my language.
