2009 Ford Fusion SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Overall, the car is a good choice, however. I would put it in the top 10 in mid-size sedans, but it would be hard to squeeze it into the top 5. Consider the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Chevrolet Malibu, Hyundai Sonata, or KIA Optima as better alternatives. The ride is smooth and fairly quiet. The engine is powerful enough, and the transmission shifts, precisely. Some of the controls are a little oddly placed, and not so easy to use on the steering wheel. I much prefer controls that feel natural to use. Gas mileage is good for a six cylinder in this category. I averaged 24 mpg, combined. Ford’s SYNC system is nice, but not the most user-friendly equipment.

Best Features

The SYNC system is pretty cool. The appearance of the car may be a little on the ordinary side, but it still looks sharp. The fit and finish illustrated Ford's ability to build with quality.

Worst Features

The best two things Ford could do with this product is adjust the steering wheel controls to more natural positions, and make the SYNC system more user-friendly.
