2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

We purchased the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid in September 2009. We've been a Honda family since 1991 and were initially leaning toward a 2009 Honda Accord EX-L. The Honda dealership was across the street from Ford so we decided to check out the Fusion Hybrid since we heard it was nice car. Once we drove it we were sold. Great ride--super handling, quiet, solid feel. The biggest advantages over the Accord were the high tech features. The navigation system, SYNC, and blind spot awareness system are fantastic and either weren't offered or simply were nicer than Hondas. Mileage has come in at 38.5 so far in combined driving. I'm really impressed by Ford now. Amazing car...


Best Features

Great ride--you don't even notice the transition between hybrid electric and the gasoline engine. The navigation with SYNC is extraordinary. Voice activation system is fun to use and the navigation systems displays everything from fuel prices to the weather. It isn't cheap, but we love it!


Worst Features

Wish they could make the trunk space larger. Batteries are behind the back seat and eat up roughly 12 inches of trunk space. Maybe batteries could be moved under the trunk in future design, but it is adequate for most of our needs.

2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

I traded my Prius for this car because the Fusion is so superior. It's more comfortable, quieter, better looking, the radio is better, it gets better mileage and is just plain more fun. Bottom line, you can't go wrong here. Dump your existing hybrid and get the fusion. For sure.


Best Features

It looks so sweet and the drive is just as good as it looks. I also love the driver assist chimes.


Worst Features

Could use a few less buttons but that's about it. This car is a winner.

2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

Loved this car for exactly 2 months. First new car in 10 years and loved all the upgraded accessories - navigation, SYNC, smart gages. Was averaging >40 mpg combined. One day, it just would not start (the green light wouldn't come on). All other lights were on but the engine would not start. As of today, it's been in the Ford service shop for 30 days! They cannot figure out what is wrong. It's incredible that Ford would put this car on the market with this type of hidden defect and without having service mechanics (including corporate mechanical and hybrid experts) able to diagnose the problem. Ford customer service has been unresponsive. Buyers beware of the Ford Fusion Hybrid.


Best Features

Exterior styling is extremely appealing. Navigation is great, smart gages really help you focus on driving for fuel efficiency, great mileage. Fun to drive (if you can get the engine to start....).


Worst Features

Ford needs to work on quality big time. Ford Fusion Hybrid 2010 is NOT ready for prime time.

2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

3 mos, 1200 mi. My commute is 12 mi, 50 mph freeway in AM (44 mpg) and stop/go gridlock in PM(39 mpg). Short errands bring my average down to 40 mpg. Headlights nice and bright, with good distance and cutoff. Love the standard features - pwr pass seat, electrochromic rear view mirror, 6 CD changer, reverse alarm, driver's lumbar support, alloy wheels with Michelin MXV4 S8s, dual zone A/C, vehicle speed sensistive wipers. Considered G37 Journey (needs premium, too small inside), Genesis V6 (no dealer discount, given $1000 rebate). Still have other car (Camry LE V6). Absolutely happy with my decision on a balanced price/performance/life cycle cost/quality/reliability/USA company basis.


Best Features

Great gas mileage, wonderfully subtle gas/electric transitions, stiff and quiet structure, sports sedan handling. Great base level sound system. Sync for iPod, phone, traffic, and directions. Quality interior. Quiet, except for A/C fan on high speed. Operates like a regular car, not a Prius.


Worst Features

Make side view mirrors foldable, move A/C controls higher on dash. Reduce vehicle weight without hurting stiffness or noise. Enlarge trunk by lowering temp spare and moving fuel vapor canister elsewhere. Make leather a stand-alone option. Raise rear seat slightly, increase rear seat toe room.

Review

great car; I am averaging about 39.5 mpg for the first 540 miles. I love the blis lights on the side view mirrors that tells the me that someone is in my blind spot. Only 2 minor complaints;first the rear view mirror is too low on the windshield-taking away from my front vision and there are too many buttons on the dash-should have used dials. Overall a great car, but a bit on the expensive side and could use a drop more power.


Best Features

blis lights on side view mirrors, warning chimes when a car is coming and I am backing out, fit and finish


Worst Features

move the rear view mirror higher on the front windshield and less buttons to look for
