This is definitely one of the best cars for the money I have ever driven in my life. We drove several luxury sedans back to back with the Fusion Titanium and my wife and I both agreed that we would rather spend our time on a road trip or a commute in the Fusion than any of the German brands we tried. The motor is decent and the mileage is okay but the exterior and interior styling are absolutely stunning. We purchased an all wheel drive Fusion for performance in the summer and the snow and have been very impressed with both traction and handling. I can't say enough good things about the comfort, convenience, and technology that gets wrapped up in this reasonably priced package. All my friends think that this car looks and feels awesome and they love that it rides like a luxury sedan. It's about time that a domestic automaker came out with something that is both incredibly beautiful and reasonably priced. Highly, highly recommended.

Hope They Got Better

by from Rockford, IL on December 2, 2015

Hands down the best driving car in it's class. Too bad that's all it had to offer. Owned our 2013 Fusion for just under 3 years and just under 33,000 miles. Were afraid to go beyond the warranty coverage because of issues with the car. Recalls and malfunctions seemed like a monthly occurrence. Four months after we got it, an electrical glitch took out the ABS, airbags and traction control. Car was out of service for a month. The transmission was beginning to not downshift smoothly in traffic (reported by other owners) and the recalls kept coming. In the 34 months we had the Fusion, it was in 11 times for repair and there was still one recall to do when we traded for a used Passat SEL.

I bought this car new and I'm pretty glad I did, it is the SE version with the technology package, other than loud engine noise I am very happy with the way it handles and drives, steering with the new electric steering is an absolute pleasure, the car with its traction control feels almost like it's on rails, my only bug with this car is the engine noise, however the premium sound system is plenty to drown it out, conclusion, the 2013 fusion is a fun car to drive, feels great being able to take curves on freeways at your current speed whilst everyone else is slowing down, however if you are looking for a quiet ride look elsewhere, handling is almost like a sports car come family sedan, well done ford, oh and by the way, the ford sync touch system sucks, in the few weeks I owned the car everything has gone dead twice, no radio, no GPS, no air conditioning, nothing, you have to stop the car, shut it off and reboot the sync system, then it says performing maintenance and eventually comes back up

Had some initial problems but still love the car

I bought my new 2013 Ford Fusion SE with the 1.6L Echoboost engine in late Nov. 2013. I currently have 5K miles on it. I drove almost every mid-size car in the segment, Honda, Toyota, Chevy, Kia, Hyun...
I bought my new 2013 Ford Fusion SE with the 1.6L Echoboost engine in late Nov. 2013. I currently have 5K miles on it. I drove almost every mid-size car in the segment, Honda, Toyota, Chevy, Kia, Hyundai, etc.. It was the best driving of all of them. I would have preferred the 2.0 Echoboost but the 1.6 is adequate and cheaper. Soon after delivery, the rear backup sensors were throwing out an error. The dealer fixed it after parts were ordered. Then the check engine light came on and they replaced a sensor. A few weeks later at 3.6k miles, the check engine light came on again and it was determined the head gasket or the block was leaking. They replaced the engine with a brand new one,not a rebuild, and gave me a 75K/5Yr premium warranty. Since then the car has been running great. I love the way it drives and the MPG is very good. I average 34MPG on the highway doing 70MPH and 25MPG city. This is a little better than the Pontiac Vibe I traded in. It is twice the car and the ride is so much better. The car is very quiet at highway speeds. I had to turn off the speed sensing volume on my TomTom GPS because it would be to loud when on the highway. The car has My Ford Touch which I actually like. The only issue I have is that it does not handle text messages from my Android phone. It handles calls just fine. I really like the back up camera, back up sensors, blind spot sensors, and the lane departure warning system. I did not think I would care about them until I drove my wife's car which does not have those features. From what I can tell, the engine issue I had was an anomaly. As long as the car keeps running as well as it has, I will keep it and not invoke the lemon law. I hope I can get many trouble free years out of the car.

I just purchased the 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid. I picked the car up in Toledo, Ohio and immediately left for Knoxville, Tennessee. The trip was 450 miles. I drove between 65 and 70 the whole trip. I used cruise control whenever I could and did not hesitate to use the gas pedal when I needed. On this initial trip, I used a little more than 9 ½ gallons of gas for a little over 45 MPG. The next day, I traveled from Knoxville to my home in North Carolina. This trip was about half highway and half two lane mountain roads. On this trip, I got an average of 44.5 MPG. This Ford Fusion Hybrid EPA mileage is achievable. I have not altered my driving patterns and I tend to have a heavy foot. Before purchasing this car, I had search for about 2 months and drove many different models from many different car manufacturer. This is by far the best driving car for the money. Very smooth and comfortable. Road noise is minimal. Base model comes with several nice features. And now with the mileage I am getting, I could not be more pleased.

I bought my Fusion 2013 brand new. It has very good gas mileage, and good speed in the highway. I feel like I am in a real sports car. I am still learning to use my Sync devises, and is pretty nice to know I can connect it with my IPhone, I'm even able to listen to music from YouTube. I love my black Fusion and recommend it to everybody.

I purchased my 2014 in Feb this year , and was surprised at the poor build quality , A very plastic steering wheel poorly trimmed seats and a headliner that started to hang after one week, a seat-belt that didn't work out of the factory and paint peeling of the front bumper ,Oh yes , Loud cabin (engine noise ) Now it does have its good side, Great road holding and accurate breaks , This car will give you over 30 mpg, I drive it hard , Just install a K&N filter and its good, Nice try ford but no cigar , I payed my $22k and could have done much better and got more for my money ,,

Just picked up our new 2013 Ford Fusion Titanium, I4 engine, 6-speed transmission, nearly every available bell and whistle. It's too early to comment on reliability (shame that it's required) but the car's most definitely fun to drive, is good looking, and very comfortable on our first big road trip. We checked out 30 different 2013 makes and models at the Milwaukee car show and settled on the Fusion, the Lincoln MKZ, and a Subaru Outback -- our criteria was interior room (I', 6'-2" tall.) The Subaru was a distant number 3 choice, and it appears that the new MKZs are built of unobtanium, I couldn't locate one to test. Frankly, for our money, I'm very happy with the Fusion. Check out Brantmeier Ford in Sheboygan and ask for Rob. We were treated well at this dealer and by this sales consultant.

I bought the car new and have driven it about 2.5 years. There have been a couple recalls which have been repaired at no cost. Recently had the driver-side, rear window motor replaced, under warranty, because it was the window was sticking. I track mileage and the average is 27 mpg. High is 30 mpg. It has good acceleration and handling. I have the basic version, but stuff like A/C, cruise, pwr locks, pwr windows are standard features. Also has Sync which links via bluetooth my phone to the car to make calls. Main complaints are interior ergonomics. There is no tactile feel for the cruise buttons on steering wheel or on HVAC buttons in console. This means you have to take your eyes off the road. Specifically the HVAC buttons, there is a group of buttons with no tactile feel points, and in summer the buttons are ok, but with gloves on in winter, hitting the correct button is tricky.

Everything about this purchase was great. 2nd car from John Lance Ford and Barb Johnson. The car exceeds expectations. 2.0T ecoboost motor is refined and powerful and the AWD provides tenacious grip in any weather condition. The car is quiet and comfortable with a ride that is more refined than you would expect in a car this quick and sporty. I looked at/drove the C class and the BMW 3 and 5 ...buy the Fusion Titanium AWD and use the $15 to $20 K you saved for road trips.
