Well, let's start the Fusion discussions. So far, I'm very satisfied with performance and ride.
However, I've noticed that the engine (V6) idles at about 1600 RPM upon cold engine start-up. After a minute or so, RPM drops to 1000 level.
Is this normal ? Thanks - and all the best to Fusion owners !

The answer to your question is yes. It is normal for you V6 to start at a high idle. It's just the engine Warming up. I just bought a fusion about 2 weeks ago and it does the same thing. In fact it was the same with my 95 T-bird. It much the same thing as the older carberated cars that used a choke to get the car warmed up.

all cars do that, if it idles lower the car would vibrate apart till it warmed up.
