Extremely reliable, high quality
By Steve on
2007 Ford Fusion S 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
50,000 miles in 3 years and occasionally the passenger seat creaks. That's it. Not a single lose screw, repair,rattle. Nothing. This quality is confirmed by Consumer Reports which for a few years has measured this car to be THE most reliable of any car. It's crazy - I bought the V6 for less than the price of a 4 cyl. Honda Accord. Yet, when it comes to resale, this car will be hurt simply because it's a Ford.
Super-smooth 6-speed trans., whisper quiet on the highway, huge trunk, tons of leg room, sporty handling.
My concerns have been addressed by the newer versions of the Fusion: move brake light out of rear window, quiter engine.
