I've rented a bunch of different cars for work travel. I currently own a 2005 four cylinder Accord for reference. I've rented a Malibu (meh), Altima (absolutely hated the seats, other than that ok), Impala(how do they still sell these) and a couple of Fusions. I really like the Fusion and prefer it even over my Accord. If I had to replace my car today there wouldn't even be a question. Well, the question would be v6 Vs. Hybrid. I don't like the looks of the new ones, but I haven't seen one in person yet.
