Bought mine brand new in August 09 and I know have 76,000 miles on it.
First the bad. The throttle body kicked the bucket after 60,000 miles, the driver side door handle broke last summer, the check engine light always seems to come on even though nothing seems to be wrong, and there seems to be a vapor lock when I fill it with gas and it will struggle to start and then it's fine.
Now for the good.
I've used the car more like a truck and it's done great.
I've driven up and down the east coast in it filled with camping stuff and two bikes on the back and it's been great.
I've driven it thru creeks, forests, on the beach, and in heavy snow and it's a beast.

Bought my fusion 2 1/2 yrs ago with 3000 miles on it. At 18000 miles had to replace the brakes all around. Now at 25000 miles it's in the shop for the transmission. While on a trip, the tach would rev back and forth while loosing power when "trying" to shift into high gear. When it finally did shift, it shifted hard. Did this 7 times before we got it home. Took it right to garage and it sat there exactly 7 days before they even pulled it inside. Now they have it torn apart trying to find the problem.. Really shocked at the problems. My husband has had 3 as company cars and never had an ounce of trouble with them.

I am shopping ahead of time for new tires for my 2010 Ford Fusion Sport.
In doing so I ran across this site and other with a variety of comments and ratings.
I bought my car in Jan of 2010 and have 45,500 miles on it.
My tires are good for another 5000 - 7500 miles.
And they have at times been put to the test.
Rotated every 7000 miles along with oil service.
This car kills every other 3.5 I have run against.
The average mileage up and down my 27 mile communte is between 24 and 26 MPG.
I am surprised that it has been 100% reliable with no additional service needs.
I have owned 3 BMW's and this car is more fun to drive.
Not as "secure" in high speed turns but good enough.

Car in shop several times due to transmission slippage that always has to be adjusted.
Shifting from reverse to drive causes a big jerk..and the latest is intermittent battery dying - dealer says battery bad and replaced for $200.00! ...First time owning ford and not happy with it at all! All reviews seem to be consistent and Ford not doing anything but raping pockets!
Last one for me!
Here I come Chevrolet and may be consider Honda - also the head rest and seat is poorly designed.

29700 miles and still happy.
still love styling sport blue outside and blue insert seats. The 3.5 V6 still pulls strong, a sleeper but don't expect to take Corvette.
Average about 22 mpg and need to replace first set of tires and will not go with the Good Year RS A tires again.
Ok tire but not great.

This is by far my best business commuter/ travel car yet! I'm now going on 10 months of ownership and I'm coming up on nearly 50,000 miles and not one issue yet. I drive about 80k miles a year usually, and this car so far is super reliable. I love how comfy it is on the really really long trips (longest so far is 9 days and 3100 miles). The only thing I've replaced so far is the tires at 29k. I can just go on and on about how much I love this car! My last 4 commuters were all Accords but no more, Fusions from here on out.
