Horrible transmission!

Vehicle

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

Review

As the title of my review says, the 6- speed automatic transmission is horrible. It hangs between gears. There is a delay from when you step on the accelerator until you actually start moving. Downshifting is clunky and jerky. It feels as if they assigned the development of the trans to a fresh-out and forgot to watch what they were doing. That or they released the alpha version and forgot to go through the usual refinements, like every other automaker. This is unfortunate, since I do like other aspect of the car. Nice ride, good features, competitively priced. The trans is a deal breaker though, and I fully expect to have it fail me. DO NOT BUY THIS CAR! Look at other reviews with same issue!

Favorite Features

Sync is great. Nice ride, good handling. Attractive dash layout. Decent room.

Suggested Improvements

Transmission is JUNK! I don't even want to bring it into the dealer yet, since all other reviews indicate any type of "fix" will either not fix it, or make it worse.
