The perfect car for my needs

My 2011 Toyota Venza (V6) was a great car, but was brutal at the gas pump due to my 70 mile a day commute. After doing a lot of research, I contacted a friend who works for a local Ford dealer and asked him if he could find me a used 2015-2016 Fusion with Sync 3, Push to Start and low mileage. I wasn't interested in the 2017 due to the dial gear selector and didn't think their was any loaded 2016's left as all I could find on-line were 2.5 or 1.5 Turbo and I really wanted the 2.0 Turbo. He informed me that due to the 2017's being out, Ford was offering huge rebates and incentives for new 2016's and I could end up paying less than used. He set me up with a fully loaded 2016 Ford Fusion SE with the 2.0ltr Turbo and I was blown away. Let me tell you, this car can hang with most any sports car in its class in both looks and performance. I am so happy with the performance, styling and ride quality. I'm sure the 2017 is the same, with the exception of the dial gear selector.

After owning 12 Hondas in a row, I switched to a 2016 Ford Fusion, Titanium, AWD, with all the bells and whistles. I have driven 25K miles since March 2016. No issues. Great ride, great highway mileage (28-30 mpg), comfortable. Suite of safety features great. Parallel parking is a breeze. 2.0 Turbo 4 has good power is quick. No turbo lag. Co-workers are surprised by the ride quality and styling. AWD is nice on wet and slippery roads.

awesome 2.0T engine

I traded in my 2014 Fusion SE for a 2016 Ford Fusion 2.0 turbo with appearance package. I love the way it looks with the 18" black alloy wheels, spoiler, fog lights and black interior with red stiching. It's a more smooth ride and the engine feels more powerful. It feels like I'm driving a V6. I would recommend that if you are buying one, make sure you're getting all the features you want and the type of engine. I totally love this car and recommend it

Great pickup and easy to drive. Helpful man at dealership took time to tell and show us how to do some things that are digital or electronic. Nice to have backup viewer.

Great ride, smooth and quiet. reasonable mpg and very adequate power. Spacious for carrying 4 adults for a length of time. Tech package upgrades sound system nicely, (basic model has weak sound system). Standard rear camera is great. Touch and voice activated controls work well. VERY PLEASED WITH PURCHASE

Really loved the looks of the 2016 Fusion so decided to investigate further, took many other cars, Hyundai, Honda, Mazda, etc. For a drive but kept coming back to the fusion due mainly to the performance and the tech. package. I ended up buying the fully loaded titanium model with everything but the cooled seats and after 4 months have absolutely no buyers regret whatsoever. The 2 l. turbo has fantastic power, put it into sport mode and use the paddle shifters and it feels like you are driving a 2-seater sports car, for a heavy car it performs unbelievably well. The handling and cornering are top-notch, the seats hold you nice and firm going thru the corners and there is no roll when cornering hard, my only complaint so far is that I'm pretty wide in the shoulders and the side bolsters on the seats are a tad narrow for me, it feels like the seat is trying to roll my shoulders forward. One option that you can't do without is the adaptive cruise control, it will maintain a set distance between you and the car in front of you, just set the cruise a bit higher than the speed you're traveling and the car takes care of the rest, it will slow down when needed and speed back up by itself. No more having to slow down then reset the cruise when traffic speeds back up. My wife just loves that it can parallel park itself!! If you set it up right when you start the process, it will leave you within 4-6" from the curb every time. Also, make sure you get the 12 speaker system with the amplifier, first car I've ever owned that I didn't have to upgrade the factory stereo unit. As for any dislikes I have, there are very few....besides the narrow seats the other thing I don't like but really doesn't matter is the big depreciation hit you take when driving a new one off the lot, the fusion is a popular car and there are lots of them out there and its easy to find a good used one. I bought mine used with only 9400 Kms. On it and paid $16000 less than the new sticker price. I know this because the previous owner had the original window build sheet included. Overall I'm very happy with it but can't comment on reliability, haven't had it long enough. One last thing, the heated seats are the best I've ever had, they warm up very fast and living in Canada, that's a good thing.

I've only had the car a few days, but I absolutely LOVE IT! I've literally owned dozens of cars in my life, and this is my favorite! It's an incredibly smooth ride, handles well, looks fantastic and has all the bells and whistles. The trunk is huge (no space taken by the wheel wells like most cars) and the back seats easily fold down to give you added space. Everything is laid out well, and the seats are super comfortable. My husband is a large guy, and he has plenty of room and agrees about how great a car it is! The ecoboost gives great gas mileage yet the turbo still sets you back in your seat with power. Overall, I am thrilled with the car and would highly recommend it!

Purchased the Titanium used and had it about 30 days, I drive highway and residential streets; the car performs extremely well giving me 29 mpg. Great acceleration, very good visibility, very good comfort on the long drive as compared to my Cadillac. The sound system and other amenities are well designed and implemented. Plenty of trunk space for my clubs. This is the best car I've ever owned!

Wow! What a machine! I bought the Fusion Titanium and I couldn’t be happier! Incredibly comfortable and roomy. Clings to the road and handles great in wet conditions. I had read that the computer console was hard to navigate around...it was not hard at all. Economy is good but power is still there when I need it. Best car I have ever owned.
