Ford CEO Mulally calls man to thank him for buying 2010 Fusion Hybrid over Prius

It’s not every day that you go out and make a hard decision of dropping a couple of thousand dollars on a vehicle and come home and have a personal voicemail from the CEO of the automaker thanking you for your purchase. Well, that’s exactly what happened to a Grand Rapids lawyer who received a personal phone call from FoMoCo CEO Alan Mulally after purchasing the new 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid over the Toyota Prius.

Michael Snapper says that CEO Mulally left him a voicemail that began: “Hi Mike, it’s Alan Mulally from Ford,” after which he offered congratulations and thanks. Snapper said that Mulally’s call shows his new attitude and commitment to turn Ford around.

Guess this clears up Toyota’s problem with Ford comparing the Fusion Hybrid to the Camry Hybrid.

Snapper along with other buyers will get their 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid this spring.
