Purchases the car brand new. I notice right off the lot the gas mileage was horrible. I had to be getting 16 mpg. Dealership told me to "break it in" Well now Im at 18k miles and still getting around 16-19 city, combine on highway maybe 22. Way below sticker. I have to do total highway to beat 26mpg. I once gotten 29mpg when my car was new and I took it out a 8hr round trip. If you had my car in the city and heavy traffic it's a total
gas guzzler. Not happy as a new Ford Owner. Other than that the car runs fine. looks awesome, people always compliment it and fun to drive. Just now fun refueling it after around 200 miles on 12 gallons.
Please make a better fuel efficient car. Its a 2013 car should be getting better gas mileage than this.
I picked up the Blue fusion with the tech package that included backup sensors and camera and the sync system. I really like the sync system. I am a technical guy so it did not intimidate me. Actually I found it very intuitive once you understand the lay out. The only issue I have is the backup sensors are flaky. They only work around 20% of the time. I will be bringing it back the the dealer to be fixed. Otherwise I really like the car. It handles great. The 2.0L engine was really nice but was out of my price range. The gas mileage is around the same as my little 2004 Pontiac Vibe. The car is very quiet on the highway. So far so good.
Sync system, heated seats, interior room, quiet ride, handling, lane departure system. backup camera People whine about the Sync system. I really like it. I find it more intuitive than I expected. It does a lot. Yes you may actually have to open the manual to get started but that is around it. I had my Android phone connected over bluetooth before I left the dealer lot.
The 1.6L is a little loud when you get on it. The 2.0L I test drove earlier was a lot better and had some significant get up and go. If it was in my budget, I would have gotten get the 2.0L Echoboost. I never drove the 2.5L normally aspirated engine. I did not want the GPS option. At nearly $1K and $150 for yearly map updates, it was not worth it. I live in a growing area, you need map updates.
I really like the backup sensors, when they work. Apparently these can be troublesome on all cars. If the dealer fixes them I will be happy. If they cause me to come back because they can't fix them, I will not be happy. I will know in 3 weeks at my appt.
2013 Ford Fusion Titanium 4dr Sedan AWD w/EcoBoost (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
We were Accord drivers for a long time but I wanted to buy American for our new car.
We liked the Fusion's styling, quiet ride, and features. After driving for 3 months we absolutely love it.
Not only is it quick, but the ride is so quiet it enhances the fun of driving.
The car handles great and I actually like the My Ford touch system - I can easily navigate from one screen to the next no problem.
Regarding fuel economy, we drive up and down a mountain everyday so I've lost track.
We bought it because it has a sleek new look and really affordable.
From now on, I'm a happy Fusion driver.
Push button parking brake; cup holders in the door pockets; USB port in the console, easy to use controls on dash and steering wheel; back-up camera
Trunk opening could be a little wider.
Illumination in the headlight knob should be on all the time...and a little brighter.
Not sure all the negative reviews aren't jealous Chevy owners. I bought my 1.6 liter SE in July and immediately took a 2000 mile road trip which was a delightful ride. The Fusion's styling
inside and out is second to none in it's class. One recall recently which took a few hours, but my dealer gave me a loaner so no big deal. This is my second Fusion (traded a 2009 SEL with 75,000 miles and never in the shop for anything but routine servicing) and I know there will be a third in a few years.
The exterior styling and instrument cluster are great looking and functional.
Not crazy about the SYNC as it links up off and on to my phone, but think my Samsung phone may be the culprit.
Also the trunk could be wider as my golf clubs won't fit across the width, so have to shove them in at an angle.
After almost 5, 000 miles on my Fusion SE I'm averaging 22 MPG which is a lot lower than the rated mileage for this car by Ford. Is this going to turn into a class action suit for false advertising by Fusion owners? I drive both highway and local roads and still never saw my average mileage increase. I get better mileage from my Honda CR-V than this car. And there have been two recalls for the car since I bought it a few months ago.
Improve the gas mileage and make the interior a lot more friendly to drivers.
