Some Good. Some not so Good
By Jim W. on

Vehicle

2008 Ford Fusion SE 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I fell in love with the seats in the sports appearance package and forgot to check the firmness of the sports tuned suspension. If I could get the harsh ride softened a bit, I would. This car looks great, is roomy, has many thoughtful features, but it has some flaws too. Some controls feel flimsy and cheap (seat recline lever, light switch, HVAC control, outside door handles) Seats are very comfy and supportive, and as I said they look great with black leather, and black/red cloth inserts. The engine lacks pick-up, and doesn't seem enthusiastic. Fuel economy so far (at two weeks ownership) is about 19mpg. Hope this improves. However, this car was very well priced and nicely appointed.

Favorite Features

Leather and cloth seats, and interior's look of the Sports Appearance package Exterior looks sharp. Solid feel on the road. Very good value with regard to price and what is included. Excellent steering feel.

Suggested Improvements

Pep up the engine. Advise customers about extra stiff suspension with Sports Appearance Package. Elevate the HVAC controls as they're rather low and hard to see and operate. Beef up some of plastics used in the control switches to give more substantial feel. Add stability control option.
