Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
I have owned the 2013 Fusion for just over a year. Ihave had a recall to replace the fuel module but have had absolutely no problems otherwise. This car with a two liter engine is very responsive and fuel economy agrees with the EPA estimates. I have had several unsolicited comments from strangers who comment on the looks of the car. and friends are surprised at the features, qualities,and quietness o f the car.
This is the best car I have ever owned in over 60 years of driving.
