I did alot of research when I leased the fusion and the reviews were great.
Now I am here for research after driving the car for 3 years and 54,000 miles.
It has a new battery and now needs tires but other than that it has not been in the shop except for routine maintenance. It looks and drives like it did when it was new and the gas miliage is still in the high 20's to low 30's.
Based on the reviews I read today I understand why my residual value is far below wholesale and retail value.
There don't seem to be many used fusions on the lot so I guess most people are keeping them after the lease is done.
Kudos Ford, I have never fealt the need to review a car before.
leather seats, moon roof, sound system, fold down back seats for hauling things you really shouldn't haul in a car.
