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


Review

Love the looks of this car...when I can keep paint on it. Comes off it big (postage stamp) pieces. Primer sticks to the back of the paint. Bare metal is exposed and you know what that means rust. Ford will not help. I have repainted both fenders and one door (stripped to bare metal with a razor blade). Now I have another door pealing. Guess I will trade. Inside door handles bubbling as well. 11th Ford probably will take a break after this one.


Best Features

Smooth and quiet ride (windows are a bit noisy, but very tolerable). We got good mileage with this car and were happy with its performance in all conditions. Really reliable in the snow.


Worst Features

Expensive tires. MUCH better help with problems. I didn't paint that car so why is it my problem to pay for? I waited and was as helpful as I could be for 6 months. NO MORE.

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


Review

The fusion wasn't my first choice, it was a nissan maxima but I wanted to get a ford to make my family happy. Its a really nice car. Reliable, excellent "sharp looking" interior, a ton of options, a little sluggish with the 2.3 but you can't get a 5 speed with the 3.0 engine. I thought mileage would be a little better but I'm not complaining. For a guy that's had audis and saabs my whole life. Overall easily a 8 out of 10.


Best Features

interior, storage and controls


Worst Features

Make the bigger engine available for a manual transmission

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


Review

I have had my car for about a month now, and I just adore it. I had two cars before it that were unreliable and cheap, and this car is just fantastic. I honestly have no complaints. I would highly recommend this car to anyone.


Best Features

I love the stereo- it sounds wonderful. The seats are very comfortable, it drives smoothly, and is very roomy. The exterior design is great, and the interior looks far from cheap.


Worst Features

It could get better gas mileage, however for a 2006 it's pretty average. I'm getting about 26 mpg average.

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


Review

Seems to be some defects on vehicle that Ford is not addressing. Already replaced turn signals lights~ 4 times, Replaced all 4 rotors. Inside handles are bubbling,not yet pealing. Biggest thing is the paint is starting to peel off the hood from the underneath with some bubbling around the underneath. Windows don't seal good enough, sounds like air coming in when going down highway.


Best Features

Comfortable riding car


Worst Features

Address the problems of peeling paint both exterior and interior handles. Fix the problem of windows not sealing.

Review

I have had this car for 4 years now and have put 77,000 miles on it. Apart for standard maintenance, I have not had to repair anything on this car. I replaced tires and rear brakes at about 60,000 miles. I drive freeway mostly for work and I get about 420 miles to each tank of fuel. The trunk is huge, especially with the rear seats folded down. I love this fusion and when its time, I will purchase another one.


Best Features

Fuel Economy, trunk space, overall exterior design. Instrument cluster design, handling.


Worst Features

Rear deck lid brake light does get in the way, head restraints could use some better adjustments.
