Well, easy call to take a bike over a car.

The Fusion is currently one of the highest rated cars in pretty much all respects in the U.S. It got into the top bracket for expected reliability from two different rating companies, significantly outpacing the Toyota Camry. We just bought one and it's a damn fine inexpensive car.

"My work day is hectic and I have no time to go jogging as I used to. So the 1/2km bike ride to and from the office works both as exercise and as commute."
