Not living up to the hype.
By kzooguy1981 on


2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I had this vehicle on order since early August and finally picked it up on November 30.
Next time, I would rather buy from the lot than go through the hassle of waiting for delivery. The main reason for purchasing the vehicle was the EPA estimated MPG.
After nearly 11,000 miles on the vehicle I am struggling to get above 37MPG for a lifetime average.
Most of my driving is on the freeway and 95% of that time I have the cruise set at 62MPH so that the battery will engage.
I have heard that the temperature and the fuel blend can make a difference but my experience so far has been frustrating.
Driving in town at speeds under 45 MPH can certainly attain 47MPG.

Best Features

Safety, Ford MyTouch. 110V adapter.

Worst Features

Don't game the EPA tests. If vehicles are experiencing a varying array of results for MPG, then there is a problem.

Driving slightly above 62 MPH will get you better fuel economy than driving 62 MPH
