My VW 2.0T exceeds its on paper numbers, even at 70 mph.

YMMV, literally.

The new front end of the 2013 Fusion borrows a bit from Aston. Looks nice to me. Hopefully, the interiors have improved. That's where they have always lost me.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
