What About The Sexy 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid?

I’m not a car expert, therefore whatever you read here might need further research on your part.  Nonetheless, here I go.  This year, I really have my eyes light up for 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid model.  I think 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid has a look of a European super car.  Of course, we all know 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid isn’t a super car, because it’s based on the regular 2013 Ford Fusion.  I think Ford might want to compare 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid against 2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid.  I have to say, just a glance at 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid, it makes me want to scream “You’re sexy!”

You think the outside look of the 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid is sexy?  Wait till you see the inside.  I have to say I like how there are very few pushed buttons inside 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid.  Come to think of it, I prefer no pushed button at all.  The curiosity is, without necessary pushed buttons, how can a car driver control various functions within 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid?  I think parts of 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid, where a driver can control the entertainment system and other features, can be activated by touch.  Nonetheless, 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid does have few pushed buttons.  If the one that comes with a navigation system, the big navigation screen sits nicely in the center, a tad below the dashboard’s AC vents.  A fully loaded one would come with leather seats, sunroof and all.

How comfortable to sit in one?  I wouldn’t know since I had not drive one yet.  From viewing one of the videos that I’ll post at the end of this blog post, it does look rather spacious inside a 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid.  I like spacious sedan cars!  How about you?

Not exactly a fast car, because 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid can only push for max speed at 141 horsepower.  Nonetheless, I think it’s rather faulty if we only consider how fast a car would be based on its horsepower alone.  How come?  If a car is too heavy in weight, more horsepower doesn’t necessary guarantee the car to be faster than a lighter car which has less horsepower.  Anyhow, since I’m not a car expert, I don’t know what is the range of  horsepower to weight ratio that one might consider a car to be fast.  Without optional equipments and passengers, 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid should be 3,639 pound heavy.

Just like many non-expensive luxury cars nowadays, 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid comes with tons of features.  The features that I like most about 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid are the heated front seats for driver and passenger, 3 driver memory seat settings (including door mirrors), remote window controls, navigation system with voice activation, MP3 decoder, voice activated radio, speed sensitive volume, Internet access (about time), Bluetooth capable, automated parking sensors, lane departure, and blind spot sensor.  All these awesome features and more that come with 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid do make driving feel luxurious.

OK, it’s known that not everyone agree a hybrid saves a driver some money in the long run, because the replacement of a hybrid battery can just offset some of the gas saving money in the long run.  Plus, I’m not even talking about how much more expensive a hybrid would be, comparing to a non-hybrid model of the same car.  Nonetheless, many of us seem to agree that any hybrid would save some gas money on each drive around town or to whatever destination that may be.  So, on each drive to somewhere in a 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid, you get around 47 miles per gallon for both city and highway.

How much 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid cost?  The starting price for not so fully loaded 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid is around $28,000.  I guess, a fully loaded one would be quite expensive.  I think sometimes, the car price for any car can be jacked up much higher when dealing with a not so honest dealership.

In summary, I think 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid is very sexy throughout (i.e., both internal and external).  It got nice internal features that make you feel luxurious when driving around town.  47 miles per gallon for both city and highway is really good for a hybrid standard at this point in time.  Until I drive one, I cannot say that I’m totally for a 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid.  With that being said, based on the specifications alone, I have to say 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid is definitely on my car shopping radar if I ever decide to shop for a car in the near future.

The video below isn’t exactly a review of a 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid, because it’s a review for a regular 2013 Ford Fusion.  Nonetheless, this video does a good job on reviewing the internal of a 2013 Ford Fusion.  We know that 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid is based on 2013 Ford Fusion, therefore the review of the internal of a 2013 Ford Fusion within this video is still relevant to the 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid.

In case you’re wondering what I’m driving.  I’m driving a 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid.  I bought it in 2007, and so it’s now 5 year old.  It’s still going strong at 87896 mile.  Check out the pictures of my 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid right after the break.  Enjoy!!!


What About Airplane Mode For Smartphones?

Mobile users who travel the world know Airplane Mode could potentially save their bank accounts from depleting.  Mobile users who aren’t travel the world probably never have had to activate Airplane Mode before, and these folks might not know what is Airplane Mode.  These are the folks who might see their bank accounts deplete without knowing why when they travel abroad.

It’s all about the roaming charges.  What Airplane Mode does is to prevent Cellular Data from working even though Cellular Data setting is still on.  Without a working Cellular Data, users who use Airplane Mode can turn on Wi-Fi to access the web without worrying about roaming charges.  Wi-Fi is local or I should say it’s local to the party that allows the usage of Wi-Fi connection.

Mobile users who travel less can still turn on Airplane Mode so they don’t have to use up their data plan.  When these folks are out of Wi-Fi range, they can turn off Airplane Mode and their Cellular Data will resume the responsibility.  You can correct me if I’m wrong, I think I’d heard somewhere that certain smartphones can drain battery fast if 3G connection is on.  I’m not sure by turning on Airplane Mode will actually save battery, but it is worth a try.

In summary, before you get on the airplane to travel the world, you should turn on Airplane Mode.  With Airplane Mode, you don’t have to worry about accidental roaming charges.  With Airplane Mode on, you can still turn on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections.  Wi-Fi is local, therefore roaming charges aren’t possible.  It might be possible that Airplane Mode could allow battery to be charged less.  So go Airplane Mode when you travel the world, OK?
