2009 Ford Fusion SEL 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
Review
09 Ford Fusion SE 2.4, Auto Bought new 9/13/08 Owned for 95k miles: Water pump out (30k miles) Starter 2 batteries Drive belt Power steering pump/fluid Oil leak/valve cover AC compressor issues Transmission fluid burns up transmission after 85k miles (manual calls for fluid change @ 150k miles) Transmission solenoid CD deck not ejecting discs Trouble code renders car un-driveable after battery change (similar known issue with 2010 models which Ford refuses recall on) 2.3 lacks power 2.3 gets horrid MPG, much less than EPA estimates Very little rear view visibility No transmission mode indicator on dashboard Constant "hissing" noise (vacuum leak) nobody could find
Favorite Features
Excellent design, roomy interior, good interior build quality, and excellent ergonomics in interior
Suggested Improvements
Never resurrect the Pinto engine again! Use quality tranny fluid or change maintenance interval for fluid change to 50k miles. Lower rear deck to promote better and needed rear view visibility. Ford already buys transmissions from Nissan. Perhaps Ford should start buying motors from Nissan. A Nissan motor would have been a huge improvement to this car, as well as a Nissan transmission. Use only regular metal jacket oil filters, not the cartridge type filters. Improve the bottom underside panel that is not DIY friendly. The spaces for the access doors to the old filter and oil drain plug warp too easily over time and the access doors will not fit properly.
