Purchased a 2008 Ford Fusion for my daughter for her 16th birthday.
Have had the car 3 years and we're now working on tranny #3! Contacted the dealer and FMC with no help from either.
Was actually told that the Fusions are "throw away" cars and that most people only keep them for a year or two before trading them in.
Drove the car to work because mechanic said it was "drivable" and from 1st gear the car revved at 4000rpms before kicking into 2nd gear.
The interior is very shabby, the drivers wheel is cracked and the door handles are peeling to the point where we cut our hands on them.
Had to use duct tape to cover them so no one else would get hurt.
