Bought this car in Aug. '09, and I absolutely love the way it handles. It is a 3 year old off lease vehicle with less than 36,000 miles. I made sure to check car fax and purchased an extended warranty for peace of mind. The Fusion is also a sharp looking car. We just came back from a 7 hour return road trip from Boston and it was very comfortable. The seats gave great support and made the long drive pleasurable. I have had the car 5 months so far and only paid for routine maintenance. I would recommend this car and would definitely buy another Fusion. The 2010 hybrid model will be my next used car, but I will wait a few years to see if receives a high rating and positive reviews.

First off, let me start by saying I'm in sales, so I drive a lot. I'm very hard on my cars, and few hold up. This Ford has been amazing! I bought it with 65,000 miles on it and put another 45,000 on it over the next year. I have had zero problems! Not one. This is the only car I've owned that I can say that. Love it! Great job Ford!

I bought this car April of 2006. After 18 months of ownership and 40000 miles, I still love to drive my car. I do wish they would have offered the 6 cyl with the manual transmission, but the 4 cyl seems to do fine. The gas mileage is great too. I ave ownered rangers. f-150's taurus, windstars and thunderbirds, and the Fusion is by far my favorite. It is fun to drive, and until recently I haven't seen to many on the road. I left the lot, with a 5 year, 100000 mile warranty, taxes, title, liscense, and $0 for under $18000.

I was just in a car crash today, in my month old Ford Fusion. I wasn't paying enough attention and wasn't able to completely see the road which I made the awful mistake of pulling out onto. I was t-boned by another car doing 45mph. If it wasn't for my wonderful, amazing car that could just handle it, I may not be here right now.

I have driven this car nearly 86,000 miles and still no factory recalls and i only had to put a new battery and that was at like 56,000 so far I belive Ford has steped up to the plate and hit a HOME RUN big time. I have had a minor issue on the ac, but it was fixed some relay switch . I do see Fusions all over the place now. If you looking for a dependable vehicle, try a fusion.

great commuter

by from Seacoast NH on March 31, 2010

Lots of room for up to five people, easy in and out for my elderly parents. Great highway cruiser, does a steady 75mph at 2500 rpm with four cylinder mileage, 28 mpg combined.

I have owned my 2006 Fusion SEL V6 since May of 2006. The color is silver frost and it is loaded with every option available for that year. I have about 17,500 trouble free miles and average 24.9 MPG per the computer. The car handles great, ride is smooth and quiet. Interior is of excellent quality fit/finish. I have no squeaks or rattles. The only item that takes some getting used to is the rear window being smaller. It would help if Ford moved the third brake light to the trunk lid. Lots of room inside and very surprising when you drop the back seats. Styling stands out in the crowd. The car deserves a look and a test drive.

I traded in a two year old BMW and I couldnt be happier. The Fusion purchase payment is less than a lease on the Bmw. The Fusion has more features than Hondas and camry,and most are standard. The steering wheel has tilt and telescope standard, 6-speed auto with the v6. The handling is way better than the others- a real pleasure to drive. The material inside is high quality and not cheap looking. The seats fabric feels like ultra-suede and cleans with a damp sponge. The doors close quietly and the body feels solid. Great buy! Good job Ford- lets get more product like this!

I'm a Toyota mechanic and I got rid of my oil burning 01 camry (after denied warranty) for this great fusion. The car feels awesome and at 45,000 miles has never had a single problem. I would trust this car over ANYTHING toyota makes! The only thing I wish the car had as an option is factory equipped remote start, otherwise I love it. GOOD JOB FORD

I have the 2006 model and bought it gently used. It has been a great car for only 14K. We were actually trying to buy a Honda but the Honda salespeople were horrible to us and acted like they were selling some high end Italian brand instead of an overated Honda. We were only trying to buy a used 2005 basic Civic but they wanted nearly 17K for it. After dealing with them for a while we marched right over to another dealership down the street and immediatly saw this beauty. We had previously considered the Fusion but felt it was out of our league and weren't sure because it was a newly introduced model. But this car was the right price and the dealer was all too happy to sell it to us without the attitude. Overall, we enjoy this car. Don't like the turning radius or the "clicking" noise it makes when we turn sometimes (usually only occurs when we are parking the car and still doesn't do it all the time). We were told it was a manufacturer defect that will be fixed for the next model year. Couldn't understand why they wouldn't fix it on ours since it is still under warranty. You may need to push the dealer to fix it if you have a problem. Its not loud enough to bother us and it doesn't effect how the car handles. But aside from that we haven't had any problems of course it is still relativly new and under warranty so its reliability and longevity remains to be seen. We have the SE model and kinda wish it had more comfort gadgets (mp3 etc). This model only came with hubcaps which I feel cheapen the vehicle ( I think the 2007 model come with real wheels). We have taken long trips all around northern California and have been comfortable at all times. The comfort and look of the vehicle is way better than Honda and we thank our lucky stars everyday we ended up with this car.
