2006 Ford Fusion Sedan S 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Purchased 2006 Fusion with auto transmission 4 cylinder. Handles very well, better than Accord or Camry. Very responsive and good braking - I have the ABS. Getting 29 mpg all the time. Good pick up and is an excellent passer even at 65 mph. I worked for Ford for 5 years and this is a better car than the Focus was when it came out. Only complaint is that there is some engine noise, maybe a little more sound insulation. All in all a very good car, my wife really loves it too and would like to get another one.


Suggested Improvements

More sound insulation for engine noise, maybe a Bose or high end sound system for the car.

2006 Ford Fusion Sedan SEL 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

My wifes new Fusion is the best riding Ford with the least road noise I've ever ridden in. I've always been a Ford man but thought the Fords always had too much road noise but the new Fusion does not. Got the V6 with more than enough power. Gas mileage runs about 26 in the city and was 28.5 when new on the highway; should be around 30 or better now on the highway. Very tight made and a pleasure to drive.


Favorite Features

The upgraded stereo, the tight steering and great, smooth ride along with good gas mileage.


Suggested Improvements

Anti-lock brakes standard.

2006 Ford Fusion Sedan SEL 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

So far the Fusion has continued to impress me. The 4 cylinder 5 speed SEL combination was hard to find, but well worth the hunt. The handling is very direct with a European flavor which I appreciate. Try the 5 speed before you fall in the automatic crowd, you won't regret it. So far reliability has been perfect without any hint of problems, rattles, etc.


Favorite Features

Overall vehicle dynamics are the best feature of the car.


Suggested Improvements

A 6th speed would be nice, as the gearing is fairly short, especially when cruising over 75mph. This should also further improve the already fuel economy.

2006 Ford Fusion Sedan SEL 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I skeptically purchased my Fusion SEL in June of 2006. I have gotten a lot more than I expected from the car-the only things I would change are the stereo (no iPod jack) and add a bit more power under the hood. Other than that, great car and very comfortable seats.


Favorite Features

Seats, fold down rear seats, power sunroof, sound system, fuel economy.


Suggested Improvements

Stereo needs an iPod jack!

2006 Ford Fusion Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

My husband works for Ford and it was time to turn in the car I had so I decided to lease the 2006 Ford Fusion. There weren't that many on the lot, so I took an SE I4. I like it, it's comfortable, rides smooth, and nice.


Favorite Features

Great factory speakers.


Suggested Improvements

Well now the 2007 model comes standard with all side curtain airbags. Mine doesn't have that unless it was extra so that's why 2006 model has a very poor safety rating.
