What I find interesting is the slating of the fuel economy versus the Fusion Hybrid.  I read on Priuschat that there is controversy about the Fusion Hybrid MPA numbers and indeed Consumer Reports did a test and got only 39mpg (just 1 mpg more than the Camry Hybrid, which uses the same drive train as the ES300h). You can watch the Consumer Reports video here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=9vmMXHPl6Eo#!

    Ford owners, and media testers, are consistently getting no better MPG from Ford than you will get from the Toyota sedan hybrids. Ford says it can take up to 3k miles for the drivetrain to reach peak efficiency.  No other hybrid has this glaring flaw.  The EPA is slowly mobilizing into an investigation..... BD

    Since Ford is American they get away with the crap that Toyota would face.. Political rubbish..

InsideLine, the now defunct premium car enthusiast's site from Edmunds, tested the car last month, and that test has moved to the Edmunds site.  With the Avalon, Camry, and Lexus ES, they are getting the EPA estimates in their testing, between 38-41 MPG. The Edmunds site is pretty bad for actual car reviews, pictures, and the don't allow discussions there either.   Now their only value is pricing and owner reviews. BD

Agree that Inside Line is a piece of crap website. On the sneak review for the 2014 IS, in the same article, the same editor managed to contradict himself by saying the car received minor revision for its suspension but later on said that the rear suspension is all new. Professional journalism at its finest...

    Inside Line is good.  It's Edmunds that is the problem.  It is swallowing IL whole. BD
