2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
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.
700 miles per tank of gas
Comfortable ride and seating
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.
