1 month after I purchased my used Ford Fusion I had to replace the entire engine due to there being NO OIL in my engine...?? They couldn't find out where it's going or what is wrong with it. My warranty that I purchased covered the replacement with another used engine...I kept up with repairs and oil changes. 1.5yrs later it is devoid of oil AGAIN, and I am told I need another new engine...?? I'm done with the car, and have began seeking legal counsel since the Ford Dealership won't do anything for me. Suggestions about this situation is welcome!
a/c and heat. good head room. 6 cd changer is fun. cabinet on top of dash is awesome. fairly quick in movement, smooth ride. OK gas mileage.
Engine needs to be better quality!
Better trunk entrance, it seems awful narrow. cannot put medium sized furniture in the trunk. headlamps are foggy. spoiler on trunk make it near impossible to see out back window. The drivers and passenger seats are kinda bucket-y and hurt for long drives.
Nice car for last 3+ years, never been in shop, except for tires I change my own oil, fan is loud but normal for fusion. good ride .. tires all wore out by 36k, now have Nexen tires, they seem ok at 55k. I did just put in battery also. MPG average 28 with 70% hwy and 30% city
I puchased a brand new 2006 Ford Fusion
because of reliability and currently have about
74,000 miles on it and the transmssion is going
bad- it slips and knocks. Talked to numerous
mechanics and been given runaround! Will
drive car until it dies but now I know why
people are buying Toyota's and Honda's!
The 2006 Ford Fusion has nice looks but is
not a very reliable car especially with the
transmission problems and Ford not
Ford should have a recall on the 2006 Fusion
because of a poorly made transmission! Be
upfront with the consumer! This should not
have happened. Ford should be upfront and
issue a recall on this model!
I love this car! Its sporty, fun, and practical. The only problem i've had with this car is the clutch went out at 90,000 miles...bummer, but i'll get over it. This car is pretty quick off the line considering what its made for. This car is 100% in every way.
I picked this up in Sep 06.I really liked the styling and still do. Since getting my D.L. 26 yrs ago, I've owned 6 Fords,1 Chevrolet,1 Buick, and 1 Pontiac. I had at least 2 issues with each of them. 11 with the Buick.I have not had a single issue with this car after 51k miles. The OEM tires wear quickly.Softer rubber,better handling,means quicker wear.Replaced with Michelins.I believe, due to the Mazda 6 underpinnings,I've noticed little, if any, difference in handling with the tire swap.I purposely chose the manual.More engaging in my experience and the manual with the Fusion is just as good as 2 others I have owned. Being a sedan manual is a plus. Great looks, dependable,and fun.
The styling has always been a big plus. Plenty of passenger/cargo room, comfortable ride, and excellent handling for a sedan under 20k. Gas mileage is decent. I average 23city and 32hwy.Base stereo actually sounds really good.Not as loud, but comparable to sound in my Mach system in 99 Mustang GT
Rear visibility does take some getting used to.Turn radius needs to be tightened a bit.Could use 1 more gear.Driving at 70mph runs me at around 3300rpm.Finally,one thing Ford has been slow to adopt. Full,not partial, headrests for backseat passengers.
