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

Review

Purchased used in 2006 with 1,200 miles on the OD. For the first three years car was brilliant. No problems, just routine maintenance, brakes, oil changes, ect. Ride was excellent and the seats are extremely comfortable and well trimmed. In 2010, we had a few problems with the engine, but was covered under an extended warranty. Service engine soon light would come off and on. Also problems with charging system. In 2013, the car reached around 96,000 miles and started to develop some transmission problems. Dealer inspected the car and would not be a cheap fix since the extended warranty had ended. Decided to trade the car in and avoid major repairs in the future.

Favorite Features

Seats were black leather with white stitching, and extremely comfortable. The car had excellent leg room and was comfortable to drive. Decent in the winter with Ford approved All-Season tires. A set of 4 was around $700. Fantastic heating system, would warm up in a jiffy. Heated seats were also nice in the winter. Drove to Florida a few times and had no problems, there and back.

Suggested Improvements

The car is a good buy, but I would warn future buyers to purchase an extended warranty that will cover major repairs to the transmission and engine. The car was reliable and did not experience any major problems until 80,000 miles. Pros: Affordable maintenance, oil change was $20.00. Wipers could be purchased at any convenience store.
