I just bought my Fusion and I absolutely love it. I had a Jeep and it's great to have a little luxury again. Comfortable car except for the head rest. Was almost a deal breaker but found a way to tilt seat back so it is comfortable now. My young adult child also loved driving it.
I got my Ford Fusion in May of 2009 and so far no problems. I think the car needs a little more horsepower, but I got the 4 cylinder for better fuel economy. It's a really nice looking car and the seats are comfortable. The Sun and SYNC package is great, and I love the Bluetooth hands free phone system, though I've often had to reboot my phone to make it work, but when it works its great. Its not the fastest car, but it is comfortable. I'm 6'4" and I fit comfortably in the backseat with the front seat pushed all the way back.
Sunroof/moonroof, SYNC, Bluetooth, 6-disc CD Changer, 60/40 split folding seats, fun to drive. I like the front end better in the 09 than the 2010, but I like the 2010's tail lights better.
More horsepower in the I-4, fix fit and finish issues (gap in the panel under the steering wheel), put a gas lift for the hood instead of the the old fashioned stick.
Traded in a disappointing 2005 F-150 for this nimble and comfortable sedan. Fits three child seats in the rear and still has a respectable trunk. I like the handling with the 18" wheels and tires. Car goes through snow fairly well. Interior is nice, I like simple controls. I even think the "boring" radio is nice. This car is more of a good value than the Accord and Corolla I had previously. On many occasions I have gotten over 30 mpg, even though it is rated at 29. My only real complaint is the lack of power. Acceleration is sluggish and noisy. Aside from that, this is a solid car and I hope Ford keeps improving it because I would like to buy another one in the future.
Good standard features, solid transmission, excellent handling and brakes, comfortable seats, nice trunk
First off I love this car! The leather interior is very comfortable and soft. Seat warmers work great and the radio control with and without the sync system are easy to use. The ride of the car is fantastic. It's powerful yet nice and quiet on the inside. The engine can run a bit high on start up so allow some time for the car to warm up and settle down a bit. Gas mileage is ok, but I honestly expected a little more out of the car. The only bad thing I can say about this car is the 18" wheels. The wheels are extremely soft and trust me I have dented them already and not on a memorable pot hole either. The Goodyear tires have a soft sidewall and bubble pretty easily.
Tougher alloy wheels and better tires. I know they are low profile but maybe thats not the best idea if Ford wants to use these rims.
I purchased a new 2009 SE 2.3L 4cyl 5speed auto in Jan09. Curently at 10,000 miles. This vehicle has had zero defects, and has performed exceptionally well. The fuel economy is remarkable for a vehicle this size. My poorest tank was 28mpg, and on long trips around 31-33 mpg. I have had numerous VW's , Saabs, and an Audi.This car does not have the cachet of those brands, but really does come very close in overall ownership experience. It is so much more reliable than those other vehicles, without all the added expenses. I am not normally a sedan driver, but this is a really good one. I'm 58,and 6ft tall, and find it comfortable for 8-10 hours all day trips.
The incredible value of this vehicle, compared to the other mid priced, and higher end brands. Good handling for the Northern california back roads.
The auto dimming rearview mirror is weak. But, friends with other brands tell me the same thing. And yes, headrests are a bit confining.
