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


Review

I purchased my 2010 Fusion SEL used in 2010 with 22k miles on it.
At first I really enjoyed my car, but then the transmission flares started.
The first time I took it in under warranty they kept my car for 26 days because the part was on back order.
The second time I had a problem out of it they had it for 13 days.
I replaced the rear brakes at 40k because they were horrible.
I have replaced the front tires twice because one tire wears unevenly and would not pass inspection. The third time I had a problem I took it to the dealership I purchased it from and they bought it back from me for more than I owed.
I am now the happy owner of a 2012 Malibu and will not own a Ford ever again.

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


Review

2010 fusion SE automatic 2.5l 4cylinder
31 mpg combined. Bought the car used in 2010 with 20,000 miles for $13,000 vehicle now has 70,000 miles. I have had no problems with this vehicle to date. I drive 70 miles everyday about 30% city 70% highway and get 31 mpg very happy with the car fun to drive
and economical. Oil change every 7k miles with full synthetic oil. have not changed spark plugs. Right break light went out $10 to fix. have taken several trips from DallasTX to EL Paso Tx 600 mile trip got 41 mpg vehicle not even rated to get 40 mpg exceeded my expectations was hesitant due to reading reviews about transmission have not had such problem.

Review

Buyers beware!
This model year of Ford Fusion has had many, many transmission problems, and I can not recommend this vehicle.
I'm a lifelong Ford owner, and would normally stand up for them, but this machine has been extremely disappointing.
The dealership has done the repairs as recommended by Ford, but it's never going to be enough until they re-design the transmission.
The transmission started slipping before 20K miles, and would slip bad enough to drop a gear when accelerating at highway speed.
It completely disengaged once while at normal highway speeds, and had to coast to the shoulder and "re-boot" the car (it's all electronic controls) to get it back to shop.
Do not buy!

Review

Saw on this evenings' news that Ford got bad marks for their transmissions .Finally all of us that have been complaining about the strange 6sp. auto. has been heard. Can we hope that Ford will properly address these problems? Ford
is still building some great looking cars but oh those trannys are a nightmare. The 6 sp was supposed to increase mpg. but how can it if the engine is reving like a race car between gears?

Review

I thought the candy apple red metallic on the fusion was so pretty.
I forgot it needed to be dependable.
At 4000 miles it would not shift from 2nd to 3rd.
Had to rebuild the transmission.
Drove to Boise from Portland a in Meridian the rack of the steering had to be replaced.
It was about 12,000 miles.
Fortunatly for us it happened when stopped.
Not a happy Fusion owner.
It is a nice car but needs to bdependable.
Wish I had my Toyota back.
