2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid Sedan 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 Sedan 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.

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


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

Review

I have driven about 1,800 miles so far. Love the car. Getting 38.4 mpg combo surburban and highway driving. Friends are in awe- no sense when you drive its a hybrid. Love the leaves to give you guidance how to improve milage. Simply great handling. First Ford I have owned and I am very impressed. Liked it a lot better for comfort than Prius I tried.


Best Features

blind spot warning system- fantastic option feature. worth the money.


Worst Features

Holder for sunglasses in car roof needs to be longer and larger- many will not fit.

Review

Bought this car in August '09 and it was the best decision I've ever made. This car is amazing. It is so technologically advanced that it is a total surprise it was made by Ford. I've owned a 2005 BMW 525i and my wife drives a 2008 Acura TL and this car beats them both, hands down. The ride is so smooth and in my opinion it feels like it's gliding over the road. The look and feel inside and out is of a luxury car that costs 15K to 20K more. Everywhere I go people ask me questions and most of them always say the same thing: "Ford makes this?" And not to mention the fuel savings! I commute 100 miles to work each day, and went from filling up 3 times a week to 1.


Best Features

Sync is awesome. The interaction between my radio, phone and mp3 player is a breeze. You talk and it understands. The BMW and the Acura always have problems with the speech recognition. Also BLIS w/ cross Traffic Alert is great.


Worst Features

Two things I found so far: 1. Folding mirrors. Why Ford doesn't make folding mirrors is beyond me. 2. Memory for Drivers seat. If Ford takes care of those 2 things this car will be able to compete with the best luxury cars out there!!
