New Sport Owner and Member.

Just got a Ingot Silver Sport. With no options. Was trying for a Ruby Red with everything but the price was out of my comfort zone. Really loving the car. I'm coming from a 2014 Nissan Frontier so its so different. The ability to pass at a moments notice is so nice. Still getting used to no key, its a little strange. Hoping to pick up some good information and maybe some friend here on the forum.

Nice to meet you all (y'all for short)

Welcome and yes the key takes awhile to get used to along with no shift handle.

Welcome aboard. Had mine for 6 months and have a handle on not having to pull the key out of the pocket. Keyless lock and unlock is cool. You'll be amazed at the range for remote start. Still miss the shifter, particularly at the lights as i used to pop into neutral while waiting.

Plenty of friendly folks here willing to shre their knowledge.

Thanks for the warm welcome. Just got back from drive up to Rocky Mountain National Park. I live in Longmont Colorado so its just right up the highway. Fun!!! This car is deceptively fast coming out of a truck. My son (8yrs) has decided to call the car the Silver Speed Demon.

Ok quick question. When your in Sport Mode if you use the paddles then its like a manual but how to go back to Auto but stay in Sport? Hope this question makes sense. It seems I needed to switch out then back on.
thanks

Just hold the up shift paddle for a few seconds to disable manual mode.

Welcome! You and I may be about the only Fusion Sport owners in Colorado! (I'm near Littleton). I've had mine six weeks and love it! Have not been to RMNP with it yet but soon. I have driven in the mountains a lot tho and this is the first car in 20 years that has good power at altitude. This forum is a tremendous resource. Lots of experienced owners willing to help.

2017 Sport, White Platnium, 401A, Nav, Drivers Assist, moonroof, cooled seats, etc.
C70 Volvo (also fun!), Subaru Outback
Past fav's: 1968 GTO, 1968 Camero SS
First car: 1960 Ford Falcon (used)
