After 25 years of work, Ford presents: the Accord

So I saw an ad for this 2009 Ford Fusion the other day making a pretty big deal about the fact that it had such amazing fuel economy. Working from the supposition that whatever claim is being made, the exact opposite is probably closer to the mark, I looked into it. I also wondered whether the Ford was as efficient as an 80s import.

2009 Ford Fusion 3.0 litre hiway: 30MPG

(from Ford’s website)

1985 Honda Accord hiway: 29 MPG

Ford is all excited about making a car that Honda made better 25 years ago? And this is the one auto maker that isn’t inches from bankruptcy? Okay, thats my last post about cars.

    So producing different colours of the same car for 25 years* while doubling prices isn’t a good business model?*(except when you take a break to make bigger, less safe, and less fuel efficient versions)
