  • Ford Model: Fusion 3 1.4 tdci

Posted 20 May 2009 - 06:53 PM

Hi I'm Steve from Bristol. Ive got a 53 ford Fusion 3 1.4 tdci Called Donkey, had it over 2 years Bought it to replace a sick Land rover, Couldn't afford to waste any more money on. wanted a cheaper to run car that would be ok for me and the wife and our duties. The wife picked it I thought it was a Focus at 1st. Ive had Fords in the past and thought them basic but reliable as cars go.its a bit rattley but has a good stereo to drown the clatter. Haven't regreted it yet 35 annual road tax compared to 299. Still forget to fill it up it goes so far on fuel. and still question the cashier when I fill it up can't get used to putting under 80 in a fuel tank...

Always under 40 the wife called it donkey cause its always got a trailer, caravan or hauling a load somwhere its proved to be a fair replacment for the landrover even though its a totaly diferent breed of vehicle...Thanks for asking. cartman690... :rolleyes:
