Love my 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid, Amazing Car

Purchased a 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid SE. Can't say enough amazing things about it! So far it drives like a dream. Whether in get-up-and-go gas mode or quiet and 60mpg electric mode, it cruises smooth and has the options of a luxury car that costs 20k more. I have adaptive cruise control, lane assist, blind spot & collision monitor, proximity sensors on all sides. It really is a sharp looking car with the most high tech options of any car I've ever driven! (and I've had a Mercedes and a Lexus). I've been driving all week and haven't even used 6 gallons. If everyone could drive this car and see how much gas they save, they would be on their way to their nearest Ford dealership!

The Hybrid for Skeptics

Ditto to Jim's review. I have had my Fusion Hybrid for 8 days now and couldn't be happier. I was a little disappointed with the gas mileage on my 210 mile drive home from my dealer (32 mpg with an average speed over 70 mph), but with over 700 miles on it now, my ten mile commute home tonight(80% hwy) got 45.2 mpg. A ten mile test today of city driving at 30-40 mph got 52.3 mpg. Mine is White Platinum with Dune interior, with the Luxury & Technology packages, Nav and Moonroof, with the Luxury wheels to finish off its Euro good looks. I don't feel you need any of the Driver Assist options, unless you're over 80 years old. With properly adjusted mirrors and rear view camera, there are no blind spots. There is no wind noise at any speed. The regenerative brakes and the steering are excellent, with a very solid, smooth ride. My Fusion has already learned when I'm one mile from home and switches to 100% electric. If your speed is under 63 mph on a level hwy, the car will also occasionally switch to 100% battery power for a minute or more. The gas engine and the brakes recharge the battery surprisingly fast. All transitions are virtually seamless. The only thing that could make me happier with this car is having Ford's Ambient Lighting for the interior, which is only available with the Titanium version that will only come with a black interior, which is an option I'll never choose. MyFord Touch and Sync have been flawless and easy to use. I would recommend that all Ford dealers activate the Easy Entry & Exit feature on every Fusion on their lots. By automatically moving the driver's seat to its rearmost position, it make getting in and out of the car much easier, which is a very important first impression for car buyers. They should also verify that the center screen displays the time (something every driver looks for)and not the date, along with pointing out to a buyer that the gas filler door opens by pushing on it. I feel with its beautiful design and many advanced features, the Fusion Hyrid is the best American car on the market. And Ford did it without bailout money, another important reason for choosing it.

Getting 55 MPG

Please ignore the prior 2 reviews - come to Dallas and try and buy one - you can't - I should know I bought one of the first ten in the entire country. I constantly get people coming up to me to ask about the car and had to leave one restaurant twice to go back outside to show them the car. Drove an Audi A8L and the suspension on this is better - kid you not. Run don't walk to try one out if you are lucky enough to find one - Ford got this one so right!!!

When I decided I wanted to get a hybrid for the obvious fuel economy advantages, I looked at a number of vehicles before choosing the Fusion. This car has options and features not available on anything in the price range. For about the same price as a Toyota Camry Hybrid, I got mine factory ordered with exactly the options I wanted - Luxury Package, My Ford Touch, Rear View Video Camera, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane keeping system and Blind Spot with Cross Traffic Alert. The car is averaging a little over 45 mpg over approximately 2500 miles. The best ever was a 35 miles trip where I achieved 53mpg overall, the worst was a 10 mile trip in bumper-to-bumper traffic where I only got 34 mpg. Fortunately, since I am in South Florida (where it doesn't get much colder than 50 degrees), the car warms up fast and is able to switch to EV mode more quickly. The vehicle is comfortable, roomy even in the back, and it is easy to learn how to use all of the features. My two favorites are the Adaptive Cruise Control, where the car actually brakes and slows down to almost a complete stop if there is a car in front of you, then accelerates back to speed when room allows; and the Lane Keeping System which actually uses cameras to watch the broken white lines on the highway. Once, I looked down for a second and drifted a little to the right - the car automatically steered me back into the lane, preventing me from moving over to the next lane. These kinds of features are available on high-end luxury cars that cost $50K+, but there is nothing in the $30K price range that offers them, along with stunning good looks, high quality materials, a smooth and quiet ride, and incredible gas mileage. This is my first American car about 20 years, and it was the best decision I could have made!

This car was difficult to obtain. However, it was worth the wait. Handles great, good pickup and overall comfortable ride. My hybrid has the luxury package, moonroof, 17" wheels, Voice activated navigation, Tech Package with Sync, Rear sensors, Rear camera and the driver assist package which has BLIS (blind spot indicator system) and cross traffic alerts. I was not looking for the driver assist package but it is very helpful. It also has automatic wipers and highbeams which work suprisingly well. It is a very techy car but all the controls are easily navigated. And gas mileage is good but not up to 47mpg yet. To be fair I have only filled the tank once and got 35mpg combined. I hope to improve this as my hybrid driving techniques improve. My sons are both over 6ft and fit easily in the back seats. I would not hesitate to recommend this car.

Ford has made a great modern car with the Fusion. Ford has made a car for the future today with the Fusion Hybrid. Quality, features, quiet, comfort, style and safety. PLUS amazing economy if you just drive it the way you were taught to drive in Driver's Ed Class! I've never enjoyed a new car this much in 25 years of car buying. This thing impresses in ways you didn't expect. You keep having to remind yourself this is an AMERICAN car at an affordable price point. Amazing.

Purchased this hybrid a few weeks ago and so far so great. The jury is still out on whether I will reach the 47 MPG that is stated. Currently I am averaging 40 MPG, which is still great. I believe the cost-benefit will be realized over time. I LOVE driving this vehicle, including the Ford touch and navigation systems.

Nice Styleing

by from West Covina, CA on May 9, 2013

Shopped Fusion Hybrid to the 3 different Toyota Prius' Hybrids and the Ford C-Max and mileage is similar, but Fusion is a much more attractive body style.

30 days of driving has been a joy! The smooth transition from electric to gas power is nearly undectable and the console screen has fun and intuitive features for controlling the climate, entertainment and back-up camera. The ride is smooth and the seats comfortable. The mobile phone sync sound is not as crisp as I would like, but I am going to ask the dealership to check it out. The exterior design is awesome, with impressive blinker lighting on the mirrors & keyless entry on the door frame post. Check this out if you're looking for a sharp ride that delivers 40+ mpg combined highway/city driving w/even more expected.
