A few months ago I was in a car wreck (partly explaining my absence on this blog from April until July). My poor Prius, with well over 200k miles on it, was totaled. So I had to jump back into the car market.
For various reasons, I ended up buying another Ford hybrid vehicle, a 2012 Fusion. While not reaching the 52mpg I got with the Prius, I've been getting a respectable 42mpg as well as more oomph when I accelerate.
As I mentioned last year when talking about my Ford Escape hybrid, this car has Sync in it. But it has even more software and nifty tricks, including a ridiculously cool rain sensor windshield. Can you just imagine how much testing all this stuff has to go through?
