1st gen fusion vs 2nd gen fusion

So I dropped my truck off to get some work done on it. They gave me a loaner. I definitely like my fusion better in every aspect. Dont get me wrong the first gens are nice, but the second gens are way nicer!

i dunno, i'm torn. there are things about gen1 i like nad things about gen2 i like. colour is a big factor tho. i saw a deep amithyst gen1 no tint, tan leather interior and fell in love with it. they stopped offering that colour for 08 and i was upset. it would have been a tossup for my truck or that fusion.

This is just a small satalite pre-owned/quick lane. Haven't bought any cars from there.

Only thing i've noticed is it doesn't like shifting when its not warmed up enough. However that's what the warranty is for lol. If it ****'s up they pay the bill.
