I now have 8K on the Fusion. At 3K they had to replace the engine. The check engine light had come on. They dealer said it was leaking fluid. Since the car had so few miles on it, they replaced it with a brand new engine, not a rebuild. The dealer fixed the backup sensor. The car has been running great since. I drove from Raleigh to Philadelphia last week. I kept under 75mph. I was going usually 73mph. I got 37MPG. The week before I drove 7hrs to Jacksonville FL going closer to 80mph with 3 people and luggage in the car and I got 34MPG. Around town I get 22 to 23mpg. Not great but not terrible either. The black leather gets hot in the NC sun. I had the windows tinted. This seemed to help a lot. The more I drive it the more I like the car. At the dealer I had the oil changed on the new engine at 6K(3K for the new engine). I had them put in full synthetic. I will do my own oil changes every 6K myself with full synthetic. This is not required but oil is cheap when you change it yourself. I had one issue with the dealer when they changed the oil. They added air to my tires. The car rode like it had rocks for tires. When I got home, I checked the tire pressure and it was 37lbs. It is suppose to be 32LBS. Not sure why they did that. I lowered the pressure back to 32lbs and the car rides like it is suppose to. My wife has one complaint about the car. The passenger seat is to low for her. She is only 5'2". The electric passenger seat does not allow you to raise it. I had to buy a chair pad so she could sit a little bit higher.Report it
