Awesome sporty car!

Great car!! Very sharp and fun to drive! Only complaint is I have to manually turn on the lights lol. Handles great and it’s AWD which surprised me!


Purchased from dealer with low milage

Eventually paid it off, many years of no car payments was fantastic until got hit and car was totaled. The air bags protected me from more severe injuries. Car served me well.


Favorite Car so Far

This For Fusion suprised me on how reliable and long it lasted. I got up to 220,000 before major repares were necessary. The car drove well, the seats were comfortable, the custom sound system was the best, and the trunk was giant especially when the seats folded down. The look was fun and edgy compared to toyotas and hondas. I really enjoyed feeling like not everyone had my car, even though I did see a few fusions even same color on the road. The upkeep was reasonable and most components were simple to replace on my own. The only negative was the plastic interior got heat waping and the door handle connection was very weak and boke. Had to fix it with a zip tie and washer.


Approaching 300,000 miles

This car has exceeded my expectations in so many ways. I've done oil changes every 5000 miles and a few tie rod ends, tires, and brakes replaced but other than that, that is it. I am approaching 300,000 miles, 283219 to be exact. Definitely worth buying another one.


Perfect car for our teen

the 2008 fusion is a nice car. Has plenty of power for passing and zooming in and out of traffic. It is a smooth ride and it is the perfect beginner car for our daughter. The mechanics on this car is far batter than the 2010 and newer. Not tranny problems at all. Even though the car style is nice, it isn't as sporty as the newer one, but I will take reliability over style any day!


Great car for long trips

This car was able to perform like I needed it too. It has great gas mileage and performed admirably. It was comfortable and handled the roads well from snow to rain and sunshine.


Comfortable but fails in performance

Bought 2015 with under 80k miles because it looked nice and seemed a good car. Has had 2 recalls on air bag and ABS system. Had transmission problems at less than 100k mi. Powersteering pump had issues and leaving. Dashboard peeling away from passenger air bag area. Seats are part faux leather and are cracking. Driver seat is electric and will no longer move backward. Doesn't accelerate smoothly and has louder than expected engine. I used to love this car but now with all the issues it has and keeps having I will not recommend nor buy another one again. Now car is having steering issues. I'm debating going back to a Nissan Altima which I replaced with this car. Other than these issues I like the style of the car and it is pretty comfortable and fits our current family needs. Decent mpg on highway. In town it sucks.


Best Vehicle I have ever Owned and Driven

Vehicle got extremely great fuel mileage in the 4 cylinder yet still had plenty of power. It being a fully loaded SEL making it have all the comforts and extremities needed for one to enjoy the ride.


Absolutely adore this car...so comfortable!

I feel secure driving this car and the spacious interior gives a lot of leg room for road trips. My family enjoys the backseats too. I like the pick up on the highway and it is a wonderful car to park. An excellent car from bumper to bumper!


most dangerous car i ever drove

just bought a 2008 ford fusion . everything looked great run great . 2 days later a car stopped quick in front of me i hit the brakes . a minute later my brake pedal is soft . i have hardly any brakes and it will cost a lot to fix it . everyone says the ABS pump is gone and this is a common thing for this car . why isn't there a recall on this part before someone dies .
