2010 Ford Fusion SEL 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Disappointing fuel economy (not as good as window sticker indicates), don't be fooled by Ford's deceptive advertising! Most of all the cool new features of this car come from Sony, Microsoft, visteon, etc. Etc. Disappointing quality, this car is jam packed loaded with electrical gremlins (reverse sensors & air bags), transmission flaws, cheap parts, and engineering/design flaws galore. At 4500 miles door latches are starting to break. Has anyone noticed the totally useless sun visor that blocks the entire view of the road when folded down? Overall level of refinement is extremely disappointing and lagging when compared to rivals. Why so much money on advertising Ford? Poor dealer treatment


Best Features

Sync, Ambient Lighting, Sony Sound System, Comfortable Seats, Heated Seats and Mirrors, Mesh Tail Lamps, Projector Beam Fog Lamps, Appearance of Rear Spoiler, thats about it!


Worst Features

Transmission This car has the worst transmission I have ever driven. My car has already had 2 major internal transmission repairs and it still drives terrible. This car drives and rides like a school bus. I used to have an 05 Mazda 6 that rode and handled significantly better than the new Fusion.

2010 Ford Fusion SE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Overall, I'm very satisfied with this car! While it's a 4 cylinder, it's zippy and responsive. The inside feels refined and is very comfortable to ride in. It's easy to carry 4 full sized adults in comfort. It's a great choice for a midsize sedan while still hanging on to the cool and responsive side of the world.


Best Features

Sync System. The Sun and Sync package is worth the expense!


Worst Features

I would like slightly better gas mileage. I drive almost all city mileage and I'm getting 23-24 MPG. It's about as advertised, but it's also the only thing that I would improve.

2010 Ford Fusion SE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Replacing a Passat 1.8T, we were headed once again for the imports when the missus urged a look at the one domestic that didn't ask for handouts last year. Going up against Accord LX-P and Camry LE, the Fusion SE (I4 2.5 L) was a surprisingly easy choice based on price, features, styling and yes, ride. The first 4000 mi have us feeling great about the decision. Except when cold, the 6-speed auto is responsive and smooth. Mileage is quite good (23/29) when we're mellow. Handling is, well, it's not a Passat (taut) or even an Accord (cultured), but it's firm and secure and beats the Camry (boring) all to heck. This is a quiet, comfortable, well-engineered and (so far) reliable vehicle.


Best Features

6 spd auto nicely matched to engine, reacts well to driver input. Interior very comfortable, if not roomy. SYNC and entertainment features (incl. Sirius, aux, USB) amazing. Controls mostly well laid-out and intelligent. Great standard safety features. Split fold-down rear seats are wonderful.


Worst Features

Interested in manual trans, but dealer inventories 99% auto; maybe change the mix a bit? Absence of ext temp gauge hard to understand, given (a) low cost and (b) importance of knowing when conditions approach freezing. Cheap chrome knobs on climate control don't go with generally tasteful finish.

2010 Ford Fusion SEL 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Review

We now have just over 2,100 miles on our 2010 Fusion SEL. We took advantage of a cash reduction offered to Camry owners who traded, and paid about $24,000 for a 4-cylinder model with navigation, moon-roof, electric seats, leather seating, rear camera, side sensors, blind spot sensor, and Sirius radio (plus other gadgets). In addition, we received $1,400 MORE in trade-in for our 1998 Camry than the Toyota dealer had offered several months earlier on a $29,000 Prius. The car is well-appointed and the seat/steering wheel adjustments are infinite. There’s no problem in finding a comfortable driving position, or in changing it on longer drives.


Best Features

Interior quality, imaginative use of storage possibilities, lighting conveniences after parking, driver seating flexibility, silky smooth transmission, and good mileage. The upgraded sound system is pretty good. On a route that included mountains, I averaged 34.3 mpg on my latest trip.


Worst Features

Display gas mileage, not a bar chart. The trunk storage area for the siphon and jack needs a Velcro strip to hold the compartment door in place, and the front visors tend to come out or their holders. Sirius radio delivers lower- quality sound, and one of the front speakers has developed a rattle.
