First off let me say that my last car was a BMW 335i...and I don't miss it. Honestly, this car is extremely comfortable, looks fantastic, has plenty of leg room and a HUGE trunk!..I am a golfer so this is a huge plus. I noticed there are some people that complain about the Microsoft Sync, trust me when I say those are people that haven't spent the time to learn the system. There is a lot to the Sync, I have mine setup to my cell phone so that I have basically a wifi hotspot in my car! I changed the LCD Touch screen background to a pic of my wife and I...great touch. Satellite radio, and being able to send destinations from the internet or your iPhone app to your car is awesome! There are videos on youtube on how to set all of the Sync up, and its fantastic! The gas mileage so far is about 22mpg average, about 300 miles on the car so far. I hear that it will actually get better as you break in the car, some report are 25k miles you average 32mpg. Anyway, love the car. If it was to be picky about anything they could change I would say to change the passenger seat so it's not so low, or make it adjustable to raise it. Provide more videos for new customers on use of Sync including advanced features.

2014 Ford Fusion drives more like a European sports car: tight responsive steering, low slung seats, and great side mirrors. I was disappointed in less than the 40mpg that I was promised but as soon as I turned off the air conditioner and drove in town with the windows down, I got that 40 MPG promised. I really like the multi seat adjustment option, position 1 for driving, 2 for getting out of the car, and 3 for husband's driving position. The navigation voice activated system seems to understand my voice better than my husband's voice. I would not buy a car that did not have the hands free phone feature. Both my husband's phone and mine are recognized. I expect to add my daughter's phone this next week. It is a great car that I would recommend to anyone, even a grandma like myself.

This being my first new car, I was a little picky and hesitant. Decided on the Titanium Fusion and the dealer gave me a heck of a deal on the car. After a year of driving I think I like the car as much or more than when I first drove it off the lot. Interior quality is excellent, the SYNC system has been great, not sure why so many are down on it? The car drives great and can handle the NYC pot holes ,but my only gripe is the gas mileage. It states 22 but thats under perfect conditions. CR hit the nail on the head as far as gas mileage because i get between 14.5-15 in the city but the highway mileage is excellent. I wouldn't mind the mileage if the car had a powerful V6 but the 4 cylinder turbo is decent. The torque makes up for the horsepower. Plus there is zero turbo lag.

The Proof is in the Fusion Pudding

by from Big Spring, TX on February 6, 2014

I've owned two Ford's in the past -- an '81 model and a '91 model. Both were not good cars. Very repair prone and under powered. So I was skeptical about the 2014 Fusion. I was prepared not to like it when I visited the dealer showroom. But Ford seems to have done an about face since those days! The build quality is outstanding on my Fusion SE. Not a bobble or rattle anywhere! It is extremely quiet too. I can now enjoy listening to music. Handling and ride are superior, with plenty of power on tap from the 1.5 L EcoBoost engine. I love the electronics package with Voice Command too! Overall, the Ford Fusion is an outstanding ride!

Beautiful

by from Pittsfield, MA on February 10, 2014

The car is simply beautiful. Feel like I'm driving an armoured car. Really hugs the road. Smooth drive. The interior is comfortable and luxurious. It is taking time to learn "buttons". HAHA

I have only had my Fusion SE for 3 days but this thing is amazing. It has great styling both inside and out, the SYNC system does alot and it does take a little getting used to which I am still in the process of learning. I came from a full size truck and I am already impressed with the gas mileage. I always had to figure out my gas mileage on my own with that, but with this the display tells me all I need to know with MPG, miles till empty, etc. For a 4 cylinder it has an amazing bit of pep to get up and go and the ride is amazingly smooth, taking it out on the highway today it was a very quiet ride. This is the first truly American car maker I have bought from and they have certainly uped the ante with this car. I've had multiple Honda's in the past and this definitely can give Honda and Toyota a run for their money. If you are looking, then give this car serious consideration, you wont be disappointed if you end up getting one and you will wonder why you didn't do it sooner

2014 Fusion S

I bought my Fusion S on March 18th and it is now August 3rd. I have put over 9,500 miles on it with an average MPG of 35.4 MPG over that time. My driving is about 95% highway so that would be lower if I drove more in the city. The car is comfortable, handles like it is on rails and has so many creature comforts standard I have a hard time believing it is a base model. The 2.5 liter (152 cubic inch) 4 cylinder engine has adequate power, but I didn't buy the car for it's horsepower, I bought it for economy. My dealer, Johnson Bros. Ford-Lincoln in Temple, TX, was great. This is my 3rd vehicle bought from them and I will go back if I ever need another. I highly recommend the Fusion to anyone needing this size sedan.

2013 Fusion ecoboost 2.0, 22k miles. Looks great, great ride, great handling, power to spare when needed, quiet and smooth, well over 30 MPG highway, 25 in town. No warranty issues or problems thus far. Just a few drawbacks -Although there is plenty of leg room. center console is too wide and for a long legged person the drivers position seems a little narrow, the tilt steering wheel is inconvenient, The factory tires started making noise after I rotated them.

Purchased 2014 Fusion SE in June. Have been happy with vehicle- stylish looks, quiet ride, excellent fuel economy (2.5L I4). However, my one concern is the inability to adjust the passenger seat up or down. From the factory, the seat is extremely low in the car, making it difficult for short people to see out and for older individuals to enter or exit the car. Even my wife, who normally never complains, is not happy with how the seat sits. I am really hoping Ford will develop some aftermarket system to rectify this error in design. When I am asked how I like the Fusion, I always mention to the individual to check how the front passenger seat feels to them.

Just bought new 2014 Fusion. Previous owner of Ford 500. Had only the options I wanted without a lot of extras. Memory leather heated seats, backup camera, blue tooth, Sirius radio and efficient but economical engine. Comfortable and easy to drive. Well appointed interior but not showy. If you want a luxury car buy one but this Fusion fits my needs very well without going over board. Great value for the money.
