This 2010 ford fusion is an absolutely beautiful car. Most people don't know where the transmission problems come from. There is a plug on the bottom of the transmission if you change it like the owners manual say's [engine oil every 5,000 km trans every 30,000 km is what I do ]Don't be mad at the car or the builder cause you bought a car that someone didn't do the proper maintenance on. This car for the price and for what you get is a awesome car. If your looking at buying a used one I recommend you change the trans oil when you get it and again 10,000 km after then 30,000 km there after. when you drain it only 5L comes out not the 11L it holds the reason for doing it 2 times so fast
ours is loaded love all the features
fan controls lifted up witch is done on the newer ones
2010 Ford Fusion SPORT 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Have had the 2010 Sport 3.5L AWD (with Nav) for over 5 years now. No problems other than battery replaced under warranty. Has been very reliable, not even a squeak or a rattle. Ride and handling fine.
Sync, 8" screen, blind spot monitor, cross traffic alert, back up camera, rear radar sensors. AWD and 263HP make it a fun safe car.
HID headlights would be a wish for it replacement. .
A wish for any potential replacement new car would be to bring back the 6 cyl, real automatics and hydraulic power steering, dump stop start. What is the point of spoiling an expensive car to save a few miles per gallon.
My brother went from his '96 Taurus to a '10 Fusion SE. He decided to buy one after I got my '12 SEL. The cars has 85k and it's been great so far. Occasionally the cap less fuel door has to be cleaned otherwise it triggers an error. The car is still very solid, but does have an odd rattle from the exhaust. No performance problems though. My brother also likes the SYNC system, and finds it easy to use. The car achieves about 18-22 mpg city, and 24-29 mpg hwy. He has a VERY heavy foot, so he doesn't quite get excellent economy, or close to what this car can get. I however get about 22-24 mpg city, and 27-31 mpg hwy. We're both happy we made the right choice with the Ford Fusion.
I did not learn that the engine powering this car is well-documernted for going into limp mode. This means you suddenly have no throttle response, just steering and brakes to get you to the side of the road. Ford dealer replaced the throttle body-3 days later, same problem. The service advisor informed that that nothing more would be done, since they couldn't 'replicate' the condition, despite having found codes (they didn't say what codes). Bottim line-I have to pay off this car and buy another. Hopefully, I won't get screwed again.
Lively performance for what it is-until 'limp' mode strikes.
Bought the 2010 Fusion new, pile of junk, 3 door switches replaced along with Chinese lug nuts and emblem that was delaminating.
Rear brake caliper locked up, covered under warranty, it's locked up again but not covered under the 60,000 drive train warranty. I would think that brakes are an important part of the drivetrain.
The brakes are not a new problem, they have plagued Ford on these cars for the last 10 years.
The car rides like a lumber wagon, motor idles rough and trunk seal fell off.
Car has been on the road for 3 1/2 years, 40,000 miles and I guess I can look forward to the throttle body going.
The car has started every time that we have needed it to, that's about all good that I can say for it
Lower the Ceo's salary and put some actual money into engineering a good car.
In short, guys like me want to support the American auto companies and that's just what we are doing by buying their cars, more like enabling them. Eventually everyone gets fed up with them and buys a foreign car.
Remember the Ford Taurus years ago? Best selling car for several years running, same thing will happen to the F-150.
