2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid Sedan 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

I wanted to own a hybrid to be more green and ended up choosing the Fusion because you get so much more car and features for the money than the Prius, Insight or Lexus H250H. My previous car was a BMW 5 Series and I expected to have to give up a lot of features and comforts but the opposite turned out to be true! I love the elec. instrument cluster, BLUR, rear camera, great nav system with Sirius. But the coolest thing is cruising in all-electric mode when driving through the neighborhood and in parking lots. The 2.5L engine gives me enough power if I want it and the CVT gives you a really smooth driving experience. Fun to drive and low carbon emissions. Good job Ford!


Best Features

Smart cluster, great looking car and watching the car stop the gas engine and use EV mode.


Worst Features

Would be nice to have an hand grip to pull the trunk closed so you don't have to touch the outside of the trunk if the car's dirty in the winter.

2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid Sedan 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

Vehicle is entertaining and exciting to drive. Looks like a real car, not a Jetson's car (Prius)! Absolutely high tech with all the gizmos anyone would want. Performance on the road is remarkable for a 4-cylinder engine. Fuel mileage is terrific even when driven as a non-hybrid car. Gets lots of attention. Vehicle will run 70++++++ MPH all day long delivering gas mileage in the high 30's. Very comfortable seats. Just a terrific car. When America builds a car like this, why would anyone buy an import? Great job Ford.


Best Features

Just the looks of the car is impressive. Especially like the remote start heating/air-conditioning system, back-up camera integrated into the nav system, weather report screen, sync system is amazing, blind-side warning. Driver's information screens are entertaining. Car of the year says it all.


Worst Features

Would prefer a manu-matic six-speed automatic transmission vice the CVT. Needs outside folding mirrors and homelink, that's it!

Review

Being skeptical of Ford quality after a bad experience with a 2002 model, I have been plesantly surprised by the overall performance as well as the fit & finish on this vehicle. CVT is new for me, but the engine has the torque to accellerate fairly quickly. Love the SYNC system although it is not flawless. Sound system is solid and interior finishes, although not mind blowing, have a nice high quality feel to them. The Hybrid drive is smooth and switches from gas to electric mode seamlessly. Definitely very pleased both with the driving experience and at the pump after putting 5,000 miles on it. Highly recommend this vehicle to anyone considering a hybrid. BY the way, the Prius is UGLY


Best Features

- Ability to drive in electric mode to about 45 mph. - Telematics package - BLISS, SYNC, etc. it top notch for this segment - Looks much nicer than comperable entry level Hybrids (Honda / Toyota especially) - Instrument display - really impacts the way you drive if you choose to pay attention


Worst Features

- More low speed torque from electric drive. Ability to get up to speed in electric only mode is difficult if on any incline without the gas engine kicking in. I know the trade-off is having high speed electric (up to 47 mph), but it would be awesome to have both!

Excellent quality. Smooth ride. Enjoy the Sync system. Great mileage. Still learning about all the neat features in the Sync system and the Sirius travel link system.

Mileage, Sync system, bluetooth connection for my iPhone for handsfree phone calls and to play music and podcasts on the car audio system

Need to add Homelink system

Review

First off Ford has a winner here. The car is super solid, no interior rattles/noise and extremely comfortable ride. The interior is quiet and the car ride is smooth. Ford did not go cheap on the materials or the construction of the car. The leather sits are very soft/comfortable. So far very impressed w/this car. My strt mpg has avg high 41/43 and on hwy it’s been around 40/41 mpg. On short 3 mile drives I’ve gotten the occasional 55+ mpg ride. Those don’t happen often but when they do it’s an awesome feeling. One last note the mileage I’ve been getting on a tank fluctuates between 615 to 675 total miles and I still have less then 1/4 of a tank. Key to good mpg is having car battery charged.


Best Features

Sirius Radio and Travel Link: the Travel Link tracks storms with intensity & updates you on the fly. It also provides you with gas stations by brand, cost of fuel, and how far the gas station is from where you’re at. BLIS system with Cross Traffic Alert warns you of blind spots. Rear camera.


Worst Features

Raise the navigation system up higher around where the air conditioner vents are at. Arm rest should be able to adjust i.e. move forward. Make it a plug-in option. Solarize Moon/Sun roof for improved battery charge. Make car antenna smaller. SmartGauge Cluster w/EcoGuide should show CO2 foot print.
