I wish they give you more choices though.

I will choose the Ford Fusion myself too.

But if I own a company that gives employees cars, I think I will let them choose Toyota or Lexus instead.

Probably end of this year or next year, I am going to get Toyota.

Well I picked up my car today (then I went out 300 miles on it) I am really happy with it. I bought a Sportster 4 yesterday for my new ride, I am really glad that the Fusion has a audio jack so I don't have to do a FM mod.

It rides and handles great

Good Stuff, TX WJ...

My girlfriend likes her Fusion. The only problem she's had with hers was after an ice and snow storm, she couldn't get out of her drive way...

I like the looks of the Ford better that the others. The interior looks very nice as well. If you don't have to worry about upkeep and such, I think the deciding factors would be looks and comfort.

If you were the one paying for it, I don't think you would let them pick a Lexus. Everything including the initial cost, maintenance, and insurance would be a lot more than a regular Toyota.

As a car guy, I can tell you all of these are pretty even. I personally love the way the Fusion looks. The new Malibu has wonderful new interior. All three have been made to compete heavier with the international market of their class. It used to be the American midsizes didn't hold a candle to the imports. Now everyone is offering 3.5L with relatively close HP ratings. It basically comes down to which car is more comfortable to sit in. If that's a tie than which car looks better or has the options you want.

You are talking about the not yet released 2008 Malibu, because the one I had was a POS. The steering was replaced once and was going out again. The car would need a jump if it sat for more than 2 days. Many of my co workers have had steering and electrical problems as well. The Giant Monkey builds crap.

I don't know, GM's new models coming down the pipeline look damn sweet... And the quality seems to be getting better and better.

The Fusion is the only Ford I would consider, but it does look like you made the best choice of the three.
