My husband Paul and I recently purchased a '06 Saturn ION from CarMax in Kearney Mesa. We were greeted with friendly and professional service. The purchase went smoothly and we are happy with our Saturn Ion.
Unexplainable/unrepeatable "electrical siezures"

Loved the car and it would have gotten 5 stars across all levels, however shortly in to owning the new car, I encountererd a strange issue. Upon coming to a stop while driving, the brake system would flash and beep and then I would no be able to accelerate. Basically stuck dead on the road. . Took several tries, keys in and keys out and playing with the e brake before the system seemed to kick back on... Upon driving it to the dealership, they could never diagnose the problem to fix it... The dealer in WA actually never even documented it on my service records despite having them look at it more than a few times in the first 18 months I had the car! We service our cars at another Ford dealership now. The issue became larger and more frequentl coming in to year 3. Thankfully we purchased an external warranty to extend power train and electrical issues. Unfortunately though no one was able to replicate the problem live. Have several videos of the issue as it's occurred over the last few months but to resolution. With a baby on the way, my wife made me sell it. The car just wasn't safe to drive with an undiagnosable problem that disabled driving while in use. Disappointed with Ford. We took quite a loss trading it in with no real support from the dealership we purchased the car from. Some Ford dealers don't care about service or taking care of repeat customers anymore. 3 cars with them and you'd think they'd extend some sort of olive branch on a trade loss because their car they sold me was a dud. Imacculate condition, all Services, all over hyped extra plans, etc.... No love from Ford. We won't give Ford our business moving forward once our current new car and new SUV serve their purpose.
I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
Best car for the Seattle commuter!

Really have enjoyed owning and driving this car. Had a long commute so we purchased the Energi version of the Fusion. Was getting close to 60MPG combined between the electric motor & the hybrid motor! The only way I could have beat that was if my boss let me plug it in from the work parking lot! (I would have if my office wasn't in the industrial part of Kent!)
When we purchased our 2015 Fusion Energy, it was incredible, though priced a little high it got 80 plus mpg., we live in Oklahoma so the terrain is mild and that helped. In 2017 my mpg. Dropped to 69.9 mpg. So I took it to the shop they said the battery cooling fan went out and than said they performed a software update which seemed good, but 3 days latter I noticed my car got about 50 mpg, they said reset it, so I did, Then it dropped to 45.5, I complained and brought it to them, they insisted that it must have been miscalibrated originally’but wouldn’t that be fraud’, so this thing has been in the shop many times and now I get 39.9 mpg and fill up a lot Now we have 70k miles and are going to trade it while the warranty exists. This 45k car is worth 14k and still beautiful. We bought it for mileage for way more than the gas model and got ripped off by Ford.
