2009 Ford Fusion SEL 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

After driving an Infiniti QX4 for some time, I was ready for a better fuel sadan w/o giving up the comforts of what I was used to. I had never really considered a Ford before because of past history but with the reviews on Comsumer Reports about reliability of the Fusion, I figured it was worth the look. So far, at 54K miles there has not been one problem and the comfort/quality is far beyond what I had come to expect from Ford. Fuel is about 18-20 in town and 29- 31.5 on the highway (about 70mph). Overall, the Fusion is an impressive car when considering the cost with what options Ford is offering. SYNC is a really nice touch.


Best Features

Comfort, power driver-seat, SYNC, low- cost for ownership.


Worst Features

Most suggestions I would make have been updated for the 2010 version. Curses you Ford for waiting till the next year!!!

2009 Ford Fusion SEL 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I love the car except for the uncomfortable seats and headrest. I also have a Taurus and Ford Freestyle and have never had a problem with seat comfort before this. The head rest (for my height at least) creates an uncomfortable angle, have turned the headrest around but this defeats the purpose of having it. Tough on the back after about an hour of driving, great for short trips. Mileage in the city o.k. at around 22.


Best Features

Nice handling and fun to drive.


Worst Features

The seat and head rest need to have another option.

2009 Ford Fusion SEL 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I bought this car to replace a foreign sports sedan, and had a bit of trepidation because of that. However, the car has great pickup, handles well, and is extremely comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised about the amount of room inside - it is much bigger than it looks. The "SEL" series has enough luxury touches to make this seem like a much more expensive car. The only negative is that gas mileage (with the 6 cylinder engine) is not great - I average about 17 city, 21 mixed, 24 highway (although I've been told I have a lead foot)


Best Features

Quietness, pickup, and handling are all good.


Worst Features

My car doesn't have a passenger side power seat. I don't think that was an option on the 2009. I would prefer to have that.

2009 Ford Fusion SEL 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

My Fusion has been a great car for the last year. I researched several cars in the same class and concluded that for the money, I was getting the most options for less money. It really does have all the bells and whistles that a luxury car should have. It looks very sporty and drives fantastic. It's spacious feeling without feeling too big for most parking spots. A little disappointed with the poor gas mileage for the V6, but the power upgrade is worth it.


Best Features

I love the auto lights. I am always worried I leave my lights on after I park and with this option, I don't even have to think about it! I also really like the security lights that turn on when you unlock the car. And the best is the keyless touch pad! I heart that!


Worst Features

better gas mileage for the v6. I have had Ford Remote Start added and there is a not a way to leave the heat/ac on for the next keyless start since the temp control is digital.

Review

I have owned my Fusion exactly one year. I love the car and have not found one thing that I don't like about it. I t has the available Sport package, with 18" wheels and a unique spoiler which really adds class to it. Makes it look somewhat like a Lincoln. Has only been to the shop for oil changes.Am very happy that i purchased the car.


Best Features

the sync system. Steering wheel controls for audio and sync moonroof great looks


Worst Features

none at this time
