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


Review

I've owned my Fusion for over a month now and have 1,200 miles on it. Ride is nice and has a very responsive steering system. The trunk is large and the gas mileage has been decent @ 25mpg. The V6 has good power and the transmission shifts smoothly. The headrests are not comfortable and need to be redesigned, hopefully they got it right on the 2010 model. Overall, I am very happy with it and we chose it over the Camry, Accord and Sonata. It was a tough decision but so far so good.


Best Features

Body style and paint color (vapor smoke), interior comfort and performance


Worst Features

Headrests are not good

2009 Ford Fusion SE 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is my 8th car, 2nd new car and first American made car. Initially I was elated with my purchase and glad that I decided to buy American. I drive 100 miles round trip 5 days a week. The drive home in my roomy and comfortable Fusion was something I looked forward. And I only have to buy gas twice a week. Fast forward 10 months,I just had to get a new transmission and I am going online later to find a condenser. The condenser issue really could have happened to anyone,(so they say)a little rock bounced into it . It is just annoying that it happened 3 days after the transmission was replaced. Now everyday I dread the ride to and from work, wondering what will go wrong next


Best Features

The 2009 Ford Fusion is a smooth roomy drive. I love the seats and the trunk space.


Worst Features

Mesh cover of over the condenser. A different design for the head rest.

2009 Ford Fusion SEL 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)


Review

We purchased a 2009 SEL I4 in April to replace our minivan. My wife loves the size, maneuverability, and fuel economy. I rated the performance lower, but we did pick the I4 for fuel economy. Loads of room in the back for two growing 'tweens with plenty of leg room for me in the front. Anyway, Frannie (our name for our Fusion) took a direct hit centered on the driver and rear door. The airbags deployed, the B-pillar was crushed, the C-pillar and roof line were creased, and the doors look like used aluminum foil. However, my wife walked away with only some bruises from the seat belt, which she felt clamp down. We are currently shopping for a 2010 Fusion or its sibling, the Mercury Milan.


Best Features

Well built safety cage SYNC


Worst Features

A more refined I4 engine with a little more pep and fuel economy. The 2010 model looks like a good start.

2009 Ford Fusion SEL 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Had my SEL for 3 weeks now. Its a a great car. I have the Blue Suede and moon and tune pkgs. The blue suede seats really dress up the interior of the car. The 18 inch aluminum rims gives the car a sporty exterior appearance too. Overall a solid car


Best Features

Sync, Blue Suede Pkg, Ambient lighting, 18 inch Rims


Worst Features

Better fuel economy, also why would you paint aluminum rims
