That four banger enough to get it out of its own way?
intercooled turbo 4 banger, 275 hp gets it moving pretty good. because of the awd, it gets 235/40R19 on it. I doubt your rental had this tread

Looks like the dealer already removed the car from their site. I'll add some pictures soon

i've always like Fusions when I drove them. I think they're pretty sharp looking too. Congrats.

Traditional cruise control is a challenge for me that I take since no lane etiquette in the US. Adaptive cruise control I am guessing it is not helping since people probably just park behind the slow car in the passing lane.

Lol, maybe in San Diego, but not here in South Carolina/Georgia. I live in Nascar territory, pass on the left, pass on the right, pass using the breakdown lane, what ever it takes to get ahead of the person in front of you

My wife is so loving her new car.

Congrats on the car. I still don't have any cars with active drive assist other than parking assist & rearview cameras. The M3 has surround cameras.

My 2 series had very few toys available--no blind spot monitoring (which would be helpful), no HUD, no front camera (just sensors). And, more irksome, no fog light.
