  • Ford Model: Fusion Zetec Climate 1.6 Auto

Hello.

I'll be collecting my 'new' Fusion Zetec Climate 1.6 Auto this afternoon and have been looking around for some sort of support system. I'm delighted to have found this site.

I'm not a Young Un and have owned numerous Fords over the years, starting with a 1963 Anglia, a '68 Corsair and including an Escort Mk2 and a couple of Fiestas. That said, I'm not the most technically minded of blokes so to be able to share thoughts with you is bound to be a Good Thing.

I live near Waterlooville down in Sunny Hampshire. I am an early retiree owing to ill health but am recovering nicely after radiotherapy. I aim to get some miles in using my new toy and would love to hear from any other Fusion owners through this forum.

... and why on earth have the Americans used the name 'Fusion' for one of their models? It's nothing like ours! Maybe they were just cashing in on a 'successful' model's reputation? Who knows? :unsure:

Safe roads!

Keith

Thanks for the welcome. ^_^

I'm very pleased with the 'new' car. I'm 6'7" tall yet have loads of room in the Fusion's driving position. No complaints so far, though I would have liked a more detailed guide to the stereo system (6000CD) because the user guide doesn't answer loads of questions such as "What does the BT setting mean?" and "Where will I find the audio IN socket if I am lucky enough to have one?" [Yes, I know ... I have already done a search but have had no joy yet...... :wacko: ]

I've ordered some new mats and a load liner from ebaY so will be happier to let my dog in the back when they arrive. He's a mucky Cocker Spaniel and isn't a respecter of fine motors.

I shall probably get a bluetooth handsfree kit installed because my Parrot Minikit, as good as it is, gets in my way when it's clipped to the visor - believe it or not I bash my head on the control knob every time I reach down to insert/remove the ignition keys.

So far so good.

Cheers!
