Car has been very reliable, and has never left me stranded. I perform regular routine maintenance (including 5-6k mile oil change intervals with Mobil1 5w30 in the summer and 0w20 in the winter and Motorcraft filters) and it runs like new. Major Problems: None Minor Problems: Replaced front sway bar end links Replaced two coil on plugs (COPs) Fixed minor ground issue with signal lights (possibly because of police modifications) Replaced shock absorbers Replaced rear axle bearings/sea
Love mine! It's great for my lifestyle. I can load up any sports gear, my dog, or make a run to Lowes and have plenty of room and it's still in great shape after 190K.
Love the technology in the car. It is a bit small.
Great car. Second car for the fun of it.
Our Fusion has been a remarkable vehicle. It's quiet, refined,comfortable and can be fun to drive as well, due to the well sorted handling dynamics. Of course, one of the main reasons we purchased the car was its fuel economy. Over the past three years, we've averaged just over 35 mpg, but we've had many tanks that have returned well past the 40mpg range. Road trips go by with more stops for the restroom and refreshments than for fuel. The car has been completely trouble free so far.
One tough truck! Terrible fuel economy but it sure can pull!
