My mom's old car was a 2000 Mercury Sable that she has has for 8 years and about 130,000 miles


And her new car. A 2011 Ford Fusion with 14,000 miles, and for only $12,000. It's a really nice car.

Did you do a carfax on it? 12k seems like a really good deal. What are the specs on it?

Well my friends dad owns a body shop and he fixes all the enterprise rental cars from the airport, like hail damage, or a fender bender, whatever so the fusion was in a wreck and enterprise didn't want it back so he bought it and fixed it. All he needed to replace was the fender and headlight. So when he fixed it he sold it to us for all he put Into it. He has the best job ever. He goes to these car auctions and he has 2 Subaru STI's, a 2500 long bed 4 door Chevy, 2 jeep Cherokees, a Tacoma, a 2002 4.0 Ranger, and 2 Harleys. Every single one of those vehicles was wrecked and he fixed it. He is going to sell the Tacoma, Chevy, ranger, one of the STI's, and one of the jeeps to buy a Raptor though.

LOL, selling 5 cars to buy one Raptor. Seems kinda funny when you think about it.

Enterprise's Policy used to be if the car had to sit in a body shop for more than 3 days they would just right it off and buy another one. Not sure if it's that way anymore, but you can get some good deals at times from them.

Fusions are nice cars. I really like them. Managed to talk my SIL and her husband out of a Focus and into a Fusion when they were looking. Andrew is over 6 feet tall and he says he has enough leg room to be comfortable in the back seat with the front seat so far back that I am actually uncomfortable in the front.
