I originally had a 2006 Fusion but traded it in on the 07 because I wanted the side airbags and more features. I drive 80 miles (mostly hwy) a day to work doing 75mph. In the warm months I've been getting 27-29 mpg 90%hwy, in the winter it drops around 24 mpg. It had a rattle in the dash doing 40-50mph at1600rpm. The dealer fixed it, they said there was a Ford service bulletin something on the firewall was the cause of the rattle. If you are in the market for this size car, I highly recommend it, good reliable, fun to drive, huge trunk, and plenty of power.
Powerfull motor, great stereo, comfortable and affordable.
All manufacturers need to put better tires in the factory.
This car is one of the best vehicles I have driven. Over the past 27 years I have owned a large number of automobiles, and this one is outstanding in many ways. It is very comfortable, handles very well, and has good power. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a reliable and stylish ride.
The comfort, power, handling, and style are very good.
I like the vehicle, but have had problems with a strange strong vibration when the car hits 50 - 55 mph. Had it back at the dealership several times. Other than that, I enjoy it, I drive approximately 80 miles a day 5 days a week and the drive is enjoyable minus the vibration. I used to have a Nissan Maxima, which lasted me 9 years and 250,000+ miles, hopefully the Ford Fusion will prove to be comparable. However, the Fusion is definitely a lot better in the snow than the Maxima!
6-disc CD player, controls on the steering wheel, all-wheel drive.
Better visibility out rear window, quieter heating / cooling system, more comfortable seats
Wanted a mid-sized car, 4 cylinder engine, manual transmission, and good fuel economy! After driving several Fusions as rental cars (albeit with automatics), liked them enough to purchase. After 2 months, the only complaint is the sunroof has a small rattle (will take back to dealer) and fuel mileage has been low even without hard acceleration/stops.
Make many 2000-mile round trips for work. At 6'0 240 lbs., '05 Civic was cramped. Intended to get an Accord, but they weren't dealing. Heard Ford was, so checked out Fusion. Have 11000 mi. almost exclusive long highway drives on this Fusion. Great combo of power, comfort, and fuel mileage. Doesn't seem to be geared to be peppy at low speeds (compared to Civic), but going 90 before you know it; and handles very well on open highway. Noticeably less road noise than Civic. I cruise between 70 mph and 80 mph and get 31 mpg on trips. Seat adjustable enough to get comfortable with plenty of leg room. Same with steering wheel. Very happy with this vehicle - and wife really likes it too.
Huge trunk (and back seats fold down too - if needed). Easy to reach storage compartment on dash is very handy. Height and lumbar adjustment for driver's seat. Cruise and radio controls on steering wheel. Two-tiered armrest storage compartment. Exterior looks cool, yet grown-up.
Wife finds turn signal/windshield wiper control arm location a little awkward - but makes for more leg room, so not a big deal to me.
