@ P71_CrownVic I live in the Twin Cities, and though Minnesota is absurdly cold- this isn't a bad location at all for ice and snow. The amount of snow isn't that great and the roads are kept clear. There are some locations where the quality of roads and the level of winter precipitation mean 4WD or AWD make a lot more sense. I agree with Justin that the Fusion isn't really in the same category as the G8. The V6 on the G8 makes almost no sense at all- and the price jump to the G8 is significant. The Fusion isn't meant to compete with the G8, it's meant to compete with the Camry. Granted, Ford may have "screwed the pooch" by even trying to bother going after Toyota and Honda- but I think the number of Fusions vs. the number of G8s sold would probably indicate otherwise. I really do like the G8, but I'm still annoyed by the hood scoops. I like the styling of the original Commodore SS much better than the Pontiac. I know that Pontiac was trying to avoid the "boring" moniker they got with the GTO- but the slight changes they made from the Commodore to the G8 just look cheap.
Justin Berkowitz on Nov 22, 2008P71_CrownVic : But serisouly…you are talking to a person from Minnesota who drives a RWD car with an open differential. I have -NEVER- been stuck…ONCE. And I put nothing in the trunk. FWD is for people who don’t know how to drive properly. The only vehicles I see in the ditch are FWD/4WD vehicles. Right right, I hear this from the die hard RWD people (including Farago). Here are the two sticking points: 1. Physics. Weight over the drive wheels means better traction. 2. Most people *don't* know how to drive. Perhaps you are a pro with RWD in the snow and ice, but as you say, a lot of people aren't. They need cars that make it easier to drive in the winter. Listen, I'm not against the G8 at all - in fact, quite the opposite, I love it. But there are different cars for different people, and that's what the Fusion/G8 offer.
