Overall excellent mid-sized car. Lots of features for the price. PRO's: - Gas mileage on 4-cyl - Lots of gadgets - auto-headlights and wipers - Blindspot detectors - Dual climate controls very nice - Easy to drive - Backup camera (didn't think I would like this, but it's excellent) - Comfortable (with leather seats - except for headrest) - Roomy trunk - Power seats CON's - Navigation and Sirius console very cluttered and confusing. Not user friendly - Cockpit controls in general not not intuitive or ergonomic - Phone integration confusing and doesn't always work as expected - Headrest fixed and can be annoying uncomfortable because of the forward position - Passing power with 4-cyl a little concerning in emergencies, but it is a 4-cyl - Driver visibility is OK, but not great. Blindspot detector is a must. - Handles like it is a much bigger car than it is, which is both good and bad. - No memory setting option for power seats. A 2-driver car is a little annoying.

Best Quality Car I've Ever Owned

You won't go wrong if you purchase any Ford product, especially not the Fusion. I purchased my 2011 Ford Fusion SE 6 speed manual with the Sport Appearance Package and Sun and SYNC package in December of 2010 and couldn't be happier. SYNC is by far a deal maker. It functions as advertised and I love it. The handling is impressive, especially for a midsize sedan. The double wishbone front suspension setup really grips the road, even with the awful stock all season tires. The 2.5 liter Duratec gets great gas mileage and is peppy for a four pot. It never feels underpowered in this 3300 pound midsizer. I would recommend this over any other midsize sedan in the segment.

Previoiusly owned 3 consecutive Pontiac Grand Prixs - researched and test drove many makes and models - chose the 2011 Ford Fusion SE with 2.5L engine. My concerns about pickup for passing have been put to rest as I was used to a 3.8L v6 - my SE has plenty of zip. Have about 3600 km on it - mixed driving (50/50) has been 31 - 32 mpg when I calculated the mpg rather than relying on onboard computer. I wanted to see what highway driving would record - filled it, took it strictly on highway for approx. 100 mi. at about 100 kmh (62 mph) then filled it up again upon returned home - my highway mileage was 43.8 mpg (Imperial gallons up north) which blew me away! The appearance, comfort and drive more than equal my old Grand Prix GT's which cost over 31 000. Very pleased with my choice!! Really enjoying the Fusion.

Best car ever owned

Been buying and driving all makes and models of cars since 1967. None have compared more favorably to this one. This is a quiet, excellent handling, comfortable, roomy, high tech and dependable ride. Favorite features : Perpendicular center stack which maximizes space for driver and passenger comfort AND 3-D instrument lighting in red, white and blue colors. Also of extreme interest: Owned 2 years now with 28,000 miles accumulated and total cost of maintainance being 50 bucks for 2 oil changes. Two years since bought and still have yet to see any midsize car on the road it's equal. This car's standard features are other cars's in it's segment pricier add ons. The SYNC from Microsoft for Ford puts other manufacturers in dash electronic systems to shame. Flawless handsfree talking functionality for all input devices such as MP3 players and cell phones. Do not need aftermarket stereo with this baby as SONY stereo is awesome. Many many safety features including MyKEY which allows parents to set controls to monitor and control teen drivers. This car is so smart it keeps track of itself and regularly sends emails and/or texts for owner and also is updatable ( yearly updates dowloaded to thumb drives which in turn downloaded to usb port in car ) to allow for future advancements in SYNC technology and car internals computer to be integrated into vehicle. Last but not least: EVERYONE who I let drive it or has ridden in it cries when they have to leave it to ride in or drive another car. Owned a fully loaded full size luxury sedan before buying this car and do not miss it one bit!

The last domestic car I owned was a '74 Mustang II. What a piece of #%(!! that was! It took me until my latest car search to even consider a domestic car. I looked at the Fusion and realized Ford has come light years since my last experience with them. I love my Fusion. Great mileage, comfort, amazing attention to details, just a wonderful car at a really reasonable price.

The styling of this car is great and is what originally sold me on the car. The car stereo is really good as well. I recommend the Sport model if you are looking for a spirited ride. The seats are comfortable and if you live in a colder climate in the winter, I highly recommend either to have the heated seats or the remote start option. The car runs smooth on the highway but if the road is a little wet, be prepared to spin the tires a little, especially in the sport model. The only real downside I can come to would be the gas mileage. As such that would be the downside about the sport model. I am averaging about 19-20 mpg. All in all, the car is a reliable car and it rides nice. I would recommend it. Ford did it right for the Fusion.

We owned a Toyota Camry and although I heard good things about Ford, I was really anxious about not buying Toyota again. I waited one year before I said anything about this car - Bottom line: WOW, I love it. Much better made than our Camry, no problems and better gas mileage than advertised. I am now a loyal FORD buyer (my goodness).

i am 20 years old now and have owned my 2011 fusion sport for almost a year now. I bought it with 26 miles on it and i currently have almost 15k. I have had no problems with it and it is the best car i have ever owned. The power is nice with the sport model, with great passing power. All the features are amazing, and ford did a wonderful job getting me this car, as you can imagine it would be hard for a 20 year old to buy a 30k car. I always get comments on it, and it definitely turns heads. I would recommend this car to anyone that is looking for a very well equipped car with lots of features and power, but not sacrificing fuel efficiency for a great price. 5 out 5 for me. :)

I bought this car after mistakenly buying a Saturn. I get great gas milage, its comfortable, reliable, and sporty. My only complaint is it needs a little extra umph for passing other cars. I have put 26000 miles on it in a year and look foreward to putting another 26000 miles on it in the next year. It is a great car!
