Bad motor at 17k miles.
By ranger59 on


2008 Ford Fusion SE 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Vehicle is overall a nicely styled car that handles well. Mileage is in the low to mid 20s depending on the time of year. The motor was replaced do to a factory defect of the engine block that an caused oil leak. The dealer did a great job helping me out with the problem. The big issue is that Ford will only pay for a re-manufactured engine after the first 12k miles. What a bunch of bull! I believe that at that few miles I should have got a new crate engine.

Best Features

Car has nice styling, drives well, and the mileage is pretty good for an awd car. Comfort level is good.

Worst Features

Need better quality control over engine assembly. You have to buy the top of the line SLE package to get some items such as dual temperature controls and compass/outside temperature reading.
