After driving a Merc for about 4 years it was time for something else (mainly because of changing regulations for oldtimers).
Never owned a Ford before, drove a few in the past (way back in 1987, Ford Escorts), rentals, when i just had my driving license but didn't have money to buy a car.
First looked at a Fiesta but because of the carpooling the choice fell on a Fusion, bit bigger and easier to fit 4 grown ups.
And because of the somewhat higher sit it also suited our own needs better.
I will try to write all the things i do on the Fusion in this log, for everybody else and of course for myself
First thing i did when i bought the car was change al the filters and the oil (bought the car relatively cheap so that kind of maintenance wasn't included in the deal)
Changed the fuelfilter, oilfilter and airfilter. Also new Ford oil in the motor so i could start fresh. No pics of this but don't think that matters, everybody knows how to do that.
Also changed the fanbelt, it had more crackles than a 400 year old painting!
