This review is for the periodic maintenance with my advisor, Jimmy Ho. Jimmy's team's great. Jimmy has been my go to advisor for the last few 10,000 maintenance services and I will continue to bring my car to him for service in the future. Everything was done on time and I feel that my car runs much smoother after it's been serviced. The shuttle service for drop-off and pick-up is definitely an added benefit. Drivers are polite and the cars are clean.

Gas milage is unbelieveable. Can plug it in anywhere. Can run back and forth to work only on 30 cents of electric a day. When using gas average 45 mpg.
I will admit that last time I leased a car here the experience was not pleasant. This time it went fast and smoothly. Ask for Jhay! He was amazing.
Started out awesome now it is mediocre.

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.
Although I havent bought the car from them but i liked the overall process and prompt reaponses from shift sf. They brought the veichle to my door but i could not able to meet due to an emergency. This was handled very politly by the driver and appreciate it. Thanks
Fine for the first 2 years...

I've had a lot of reliability issues with this car. When it has problems it completely stalls. The problems all seem to be electrical related. We have an OBD and the codes suggest a bunch of disconnection/communication errors.
Shift helped me find a buyer for my 2014 BMW M5. They had my vehicle inspected, took care of the detailing, photos and delivery to the new buyer. After selling the BMW, Kevin and his team were able to find me a 2012 Bentley GT convertible with 5k miles and help me purchase below market value.
Kevin and his team communicated thought the whole process and was very helpful in selling and buying my new car.
I would strongly recommend Team Shift for anyone who is in the market for buying or selling.
Unexplainable/unrepeatable "electrical siezures"
by JD Gibs from Seattle, WA
August 16, 2018
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.
Tried to find a used HR-V but unfortunately Shift is only in the Bay Area. Just too far to go to buy a car. Too many obstacles to work with. They were very helpful in trying to make it work.
Great Car All Around (Just wish more EV miles)
by Rick from Purcellville, VA
October 17, 2018
Excellent plug-in hybrid. Very stylish. Solid performer. I just wish the car went further in the EV mode but if you only drive less than 20 miles between charges, you'd never have to purchase gasoline.
Best way to buy a vehicle. Better value for the price than dealers and no games.
End of the line for Fusion 2020
by Pregomi0 from Houston, TX

It was nice but I found a so much better PHEV to drive a Chrysler Pacifica limited PHEV Hybrid the Ford had just a 7 cubic ft trunk the Pacifica over 90 cubic ft cargo area, Ford lost it's edge when it announced it is ending the Fusion line in 2020, and is not giving anyone a better PHEV that Chrysler is and the Pacifica is only in its 2nd year of production and will last a lot longer than the Fusion will.
My first test drive experience with Shift has been amazing, specifically with Jason Osteen. He was very upfront with the car, and answered every question I had with clarity. I would like to commend the non-pushy nature of Shift enthusiasts, allowing me to make a buying decision without unnecessary pressure.
The Shift website is very user friendly, which includes access to an extensive 200 point inspection, including the Carfax history of the car.
Overall the service has been excellent.
Sporty yet great on gas

I love my new Ford Fusion Energi! Looks great! Drives great! I switched from an 09 Toyota Prius and my Ford Fusion is like driving a luxury car! I love all of the options and fuel economy.
No used car dealer hassle
Love Sift the best way to buy use car.
I scheduled an appointment they were there on time, test drove it and bought the car and done with everything within an hour. I will never buy a used car from a used car lot again.
Amazing Fuel Economy
by jdub from Riverside, ca
April 19, 2018
I leased these Energi's twice, both times no issues, used as commuters for 40k miles each. Powertrain is boring but fuel economy is fantastic. I plugged in at work, and home so the first 15-18 miles was on battery, my daily commute was 38 miles each way per day so the hybrid gas motor only ran 1/2 the time.
So lucky to get the 2019 Ford connect XLT. Jhay and Jayson gave me world class customer service experience. They tailored what I need, did not oversell and find me the best deal. Would definitely refer this to anyone I know - Glenn D
Most luxurious and economical; but.....

Car being the Energi has a lot of internal bells and whistles and luxury built in, and if you do plug it in constantly it's a green car worthy of driving. But there is the trade off. The cost to charge is not that much less than gas and with gas you double the trunk. With solar or updated batteries that would get you more than 20 miles this would be a game changer. But one has to calculate what you want if your sole consideration is money or being green. Going hybrid might have been better....more trunk and not that much of a hit in gas. That said I like the tech on the car and with wind playing so much of the source of electricity where I am....I feel I am doing my part to help the environment.
So far this car has exceeded my expectations. The titanium package is probably the best bang for your buck. Who does not want AC seat in the AZ summer heat? Driving home in 115 deg heat my hands and face were frozen to touch and so was my butt, I could not be happier. The lane assist is hands down awesome. If you start to drift into another lane it will correct you back into you lane along with vibrating steering wheel and lights and noise. Perfect for road trips and new drivers. Auto parale parking is an experience you will not forget. I picked up my mom for lunch and shocked her it was pretty funny. She was freaking out because it basically parks it self. Running straight energy is great and the hybrid feature is awesome as well. If I had to settle with just the hybrid feature alone it would be ok. The energi model make the vechicle 300 more pounds heavier if that helps. All in all I would highly recommend the hybrid fusion to new drivers since it really teaches you how slow roll stop ? and not gun it at lights. The energi would be good for people with longer commutes to work.
What would I share about my experience with Green Light Auto Wholesale? Al and Steve are really easy to work with and will definitely get you the car you are looking for.
I searched everywhere for several months looking for a particular hybrid vehicle. When the vehicle alert reached me I was not convinced that I would be able to get the vehicle in time from Sacramento. It was in such great shape and a Tesla trade in. Exactly what I had been searching for.
Al was quick to respond and worked with me to make sure that I was able to secure the vehicle and then followed up with me through my credit union to complete the purchase.
Honest, sincere and a seller of great EV and hybrid vehicles, thanks Green Light Auto Wholesale!
Ford Fusion Hybrid FORD's Hybrid technology is a J
by James from Kansas City
December 27, 2018
This car has many technological features, that Ford simply had not perfected prior to releasing this vehicle! My Hybrid is on week 20 of being in the shop (FORD DEALER) for a battery range issue they cant seem to fix! DO NOT BUY ONE OF THESE CARS! The replacement battery is almost $10,000 they fail and Ford wont repair! Service Adviser stated "Ford doesn't like replacing costly batteries under warranty" .
My car was not running smoothly, so I took it in to the Ford Store in San Leandro. The service person told me that they would have to keep the car 5 days. I told him that I could not do without a car for 5 days, so he arranged for a rental car for me. My car was repaired in 5 days, so I turned in the rental car and was credited for the deposit and Ford paid for the rental. My car was under warranty, so I did not have to pay for the repairs.
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!)
