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


Review

I bought the 2010 FFH new and we've had it for 3.5 yrs. and 40,000 miles. We only average 34 mpg, not the 40 mpg we expected. Oh well, at least nothing has failed on it. I should count my blessings, right?


Favorite Features

SYNC and the Sony sound system with the Library hard drive.


Suggested Improvements

Better mpg. Better suspension.

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


Review

Loved my three years with the Fusion Hybrid. Great mileage the whole way through averaging about 5.4L/100kms. It's got great power for a car that you don't really expect it from - great on the highway for passing and a bit of fun in the corners too. Had fully loaded model and the tech you get for this price is absolutely unbeatable. This is the best value for a used car out there now if you can find one with all the goodies - The used car market has taken out most of the premium for the hybrid so you can pay nearly the same as any old Fusion and get great power, unmatched amenities, lots of fun, unreal mileage and still not pay much.


Favorite Features

Technology for the price is unbeatable. Great drivetrain for fuel sipping or spirited driving. Seats might be as comfortable as Audi or Volvo. The hybrid - I'm actually amazed that people are still worried about it. It was flawless.


Suggested Improvements

HVAC system fan squeaks in low temp - replaced under warranty once and happened again. Tri-tone white paint looks great but is really expensive to fix if you get a ding - be warned. Know that the rear seats don't fold down.

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


Review

No major problems. Avg. 38 mpg. 52 in town, 43mpg to airport, 33 in winter(gas engine must run to heat coolant for heater). Good looking vehicle. Comfortable seating and ride. Fun to drive. Doesn`t save you any money. $8000 premium(only $500 Federal rebate) for hybrid, means at $4/gal you must drive this car 80,000 miles to start to break even(2000 gal times 40 mpg.)Cons-The brakes squeak horribly. The dealer saids to live with it. Claims the brake pad material is at fault. The A/C is dodgy. Somedays the car doesn't cool sufficiently. There is no cargo net or gas cap. The front end is all plastic. Rolled into a protruding trailer hitch at 3 mph and did $1400 damage.


Favorite Features

700 miles per tank of gas Backup camera Comfortable ride and seating


Suggested Improvements

Add cargo net Blind side warning system is worthless.Excessive false alarms and inactivation during rain. Time delay on backup camera is irritating. Sync system is not user friendly. Another weak Microsoft product. $100 a year charge to load new maps is ridiculous. $420 to replace a lost key is outrageous.

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


Review

Onwed my 2010 FFH for 23 months now just over 67,000 miles. I drive 135 miles per day combination city and highway. Mileage is 41 -44 summer (over 70 degrees) winter never worse than 35. 2 minor issues that dealer took care of rear brake squeek at 20,000 and fan blower motor replacement at 30,000. Owned a 2008 Honda civic hybrid before this, no comparision to the refinement, seemless gas/electric operation and driving comfort of the Fusion hybrid. Would buy another in a minute.


Favorite Features

Seemless operation of hybrid system. Driving comfort.


Suggested Improvements

Ford should upgrade they choice of braking material. Current material glazes over and will make noise.

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


Review

Bought new in summer 2009. It's been fantastic. Since then, I've been back to the dealer for two oil changes and one unplanned visit for a braking system issue. Gas mileage depends on conditions. In the summer in Phoenix, you have to run the A/C on full all the time, which can cause a big dip, and in the winter short trips will suffer since the gas engine doesn't shut down until it gets to normal temperature. I've averaged 37.5 since new.


Favorite Features

Love the SYNC. I didn't care when I bought the car, but now I hate driving my wife's car without it. Cool and informative gauges, and the power outlet in the back has been handy many times. The gas mileage has been less than advertised, but still excellent and I've no complaints.


Suggested Improvements

The sun visors kind of suck. When you push them forward, they pop out of the clip, and if you have it on the side window, they swing around when you turn.
