Had my Fusion Hybrid for 1 yr. Avg 35mph because I drive many highway miles. Fun road trip car with sync. Engine problem about 5 months ago wouldn't properly shift from electric to gas, so the car automatically shut down. Dealer gave me a loaner for 2 weeks while they fixed it under warranty. Great service. I'm a big 6'5". I wanted this hybrid car. Glad I got it, but it would be a plus of Ford to allow the steering wheel to rise up a few inches higher above my legs. Getting in and out is a little tough even with the steering wheel as high as it will go. Forecast of $5.00/gal gas in 2012 makes the Fusion Hybrid a nice bonus. I thought the cost of this car at $35k would transfer some of my dollars from OPEC to the U.S. Unfortunately, this car is made in Mexico. I recommend the car, but I want to buy American more than the car companies want to sell American to me. Next time I'll watch that more closely.

Who would have thought I would by a Ford

I purchased the 2010 Fusion Hybrid after driving an Altima Hybrid over Thanksgiving week. I tested the Camry as well. The Fusion is amazing. Quiet and almost unnoticeable hybrid function between gas engine on and off. (the Altima was very loud and abrupt turning the engine on.) The car is averaging 35.6 overall (it keeps track of each trip, overall and a manual reset average as well). It gives lots of data which can help you drive more efficiently. But it has enough power to get out of the way when you need it. I drive a short commute of about 3.5 miles, which I have learned is not enough time to get the system warmed up fully and at it's max efficiency. Longer drives of 15 miles or so and I can get up to 42 or 45 MPG. Great car!

I checked out every hybrid within 300 miles and decided on the Ford Fusion. Love the size and comfort and drivability. I love the instrument displays - and the fact that you can choose your favorite from among different options. Good power and acceleration, and very smooth to drive in town and on the highways. Ford's SYNC is the best option ever. On the downside, the fabric seats are from recycled fabric, which is good, but not hard-wearing, and the cornering at highway speeds through mountain turns isn't as assured as in my previous car. And I'm still working on getting that 41 city mpg that is touted - might need a different type of city driving than you find around here.

Great Commuter Car

The Fusion Hybrid is an excellent commuter car combining above-average fuel economy (35 mpg avg) and terrific driving range (600+ miles per tank), but without the styling, feature, and performance compromises of other popular hybrids. The main drawbacks are a lack of headroom in the front seat (if you're over 6' and have a moonroof) and a small trunk that fits two large suitcases, at best.

I bought my Fusion Hybrid in March 2009 and have owned it about 3 months. Here?s what I like about it: High safety ratings. I get 38-39 mpg with mostly city driving. It burns no gas while sitting at a stop light or drive-thru. Smooth, quiet ride. Plenty of power. Gas engine turns on and off automatically and seamlessly. Elegant outdoor safety lighting. Classy interior ambient lighting. Dashboard display is configurable and gives real-time info on gas mileage, helping you drive more efficiently. When you turn off the car, it tells you your gas mileage for that trip. Driver?s vision package has rear view camera and rear and side sensors. Keyless entry keypad eliminates danger of lockout. Integrated navigation system has touch-screen controls for GPS, climate control and audio system. Connect Bluetooth devices to play music or make phone calls. Has auxiliary line-in jack and USB port. Play MP3 files from a flash drive. Play DVDs (audio-only while driving). Download CDs onto 10GB jukebox hard drive. Use SYNC to control navigation, audio and climate control with voice commands. Hybrid has 2 standard power points and one standard 110-volt outlet. What I don`t like: Costs a lot more than non-hybrids. Ford charges an extra $495 to get it in white. The chrome grille is actually chrome-painted plastic. There are audio controls on the steering wheel which I sometimes press inadvertently. One power point, line-in jack and USB port are located inside the center console storage and difficult to access unless you leave this storage empty. Fuel filler door doesn?t lock. Bumper-to-bumper warranty is only 3/36,000. Option packages don?t allow enough flexibility to customize your Fusion exactly as you want. FYI: The high voltage battery is supposed to last for the life of the car and Ford warrants it for 8 years/100,000 miles. It sits behind the rear seat. The battery is cooled using cabin air, so you have to be careful not to block the air intake grate in the front of the rear seat. In a wreck, the power disconnects at the battery to avoid electrocution. Bottom line: I love my Fusion Hybrid. It looks cool. It?s fun to drive. It?s fuel efficient. It?s full of fun tech toys. There?s a lot to like about it. I hope more people will buy the Fusion Hybrid so Ford can bring the price down.

We have had our Fusion Hybrid for 3 months and 5300 miles. I love this car! Now that the weather has warmed up I am averaging 45 mpg on my commute. We are on getting nearly 700 miles per tank of gas. All that and it looks great too! I would recommend this car to anyone looking for a roomy 5 passenger sedan.

Hands down, this is the best car I have ever purchased. I have owned Japanese and Korean cars only in the past, and this Hybrid Ford Fusion tops them all in styling, comfort, ride, performance and fuel efficiency. Moreover, recent resale values of the 2010 model indicate that the car has retained nearly 80% of it's original retail value, despite putting nearly 30K miles on the vehicle and owning the car for 3 years (purchased in 2008).

I've driven a large car or SUV for years. My brother-in-law, who has 2 hybrids, shamed me into buying this car. The Fusion Hybrid has been an extremely pleasant surprise. Not only does this car have lots of pep, but it is a fun car to drive. It is so enjoyable to drive that my wife grabs it when I'm not using it. That is a double bonus, because it gets triple the gas mileage that her Expedition gets. We've only made one long trip with the Fusion, but we were able to ride in comfort for hours on end. The only complaint is the wife is mad because I bought one without heated seats. My Bad!!!!

I went to the Fusion Hybrid from a Civic Hybrid. It is certainly more comfortable and has much better acceleration. It has a plug that you can use with an ordinary household cord. It has superflous things like changeable-colored lights around the drink holder, but I suppose there might be a reason for it. I love the backup warning system. It's quiet inside. I have one beef: It's got those thin-walled performance tires that they are really proud of, so proud they cost more than a hundred dollars each to replace. I'd like more practical tires.

I'm very pleased with my new Ford Fusion Hybrid. I like the various instrument panels you can choose, the sound system, the gas efficiency, the temperature controls--In fact, so far I haven't found anything not to like. Have had it over two months and am still running on the dealer's gas!
