Bought used with 52k and #1 reason for purchase was SYNC. cold weather and first tank of gas is still averaging 28mpg! woo hoo! 4cylinder seems to have better low end power than up top.
no issues with trans even when cold.
very aerodynamic-gains speed easily down the slightest grade.
seats have great support but headrest pushes my head too far forward.
text function "not supported" for iphone3...hmmm?
back seats have lots of room for tall people.
had to adjust fog lamps way up...no idea how previous drivers actually found them useful.
so far HVAC is good-fan is slightly noisy.
not the refinement of a cadillac or lexus but GREAT value for contents.
gauges easy to read.
SYNC, SYNC, SYNC!, MPG, style is modern, quiet cabin, great interstate cruiser, great for traveling business person who uses the phone alot.
Headrests push head too far forward. USB port is hard to see inside armrest.
hard to see trunk button on left side of black dash. engine is a little "tappy" at idle, not refined.
sync manual button instructions do not necessarily line up with buttons on steering wheel. wheel well liners do not extend completely to outer edge of body panel. short about 1/4 inch. where upper panel and lower come together. small rocks collect between liner and body panel at this opening.
Engine sound is slightly "tappy" and pedestrian rather than refined.
bought my fusion with 13k on it. had it now a little over a year and has 35k on it. love love love my car. the only issue i have with my car is how the front passenger seat shakes when no one is sitting in it, and how my rims fill with snow and ice and make my car shake so bad i sometimes have to pull over from getting sick. removing hubcaps should take care of that though. over all,
no hubcaps please. been nothing but a pain for me.
My son was driving this car at night and started stalling until he pulled over. Gave me a call and went over to switch car. Drove it for about 10 minute when it started stalling. Turned it off and back on and still continue to stall. Waited a minute then turn it back on and continue to stall-turned it off and waited another minute and finally it ran fine. Had heavy rain during the prior weeks and there is no gas cover for this car to stop water from entering. Nice car when running and not stalling.
Gas cover. Need to info on why the transmission fluids keeps getting low.
The vehicle was rear-ended by a Mazda CX-7 traveling in excess of 40 mph while stationary, waiting to turn left at a red light (traffic had backed up into a lane of travel).
The trunk was destroyed and the front clip was beat up front impacting the car in front of me, but other than that car held up surprisingly well (the seat gave a lot, and the large head restraints prevented what should have otherwise been a serious case of whiplash).
Dual zone climate control
Transmission flared when cold (2nd to 3rd shift).
Not sure what that was about, but never got worse after dealer reprogrammed it.
I purchased this car in September with 55K miles on it (SE fully loaded, Auto Trans.). I fell in love with the SYNC system, moonroof, and general level of comfort and build quality in the interior. About a month after purchase however, this car showed its true colors. It has had the stalling issue fixed twice, and still has intermittent issues. On left turns it makes a loud grinding noise, and on heavy acceleration the engine knocks. The rear quarter panel comes loose at high speeds and the headlights fog worse than london. I had to take out an extended warranty from my credit union in hopes of not being wiped clean financially because of this junk pile, hopefully it will get better.
