Dangerous Vehicle – do not purchase.

2010 Ford Fusion SEL 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Updated at 170K. While I would stay away from another Fusion I've limped to 170K after the transmission being reprogrammed at 88K. My Town and country at 340K drives better. Since I paid cash I'm driving it into the ground. It I would have had it reprogrammed earlier maybe it would have stopped the damage I own three vehicles with over 200K miles my 2010 Fusion has 88K miles and I do not trust it. The first dangerous failure was the throttle body. It failed at 50k miles when I was on a busy four lane freeway - the car lost all power.
It could have killed my family but thankfully we coasted off the freeway and found a safe spot to land. Ford knew they had a defective part and refused to recall it. Almost immediately after the throttle body failure the transmission failed.
I found out that all the 6F35 transmissions in these vehicles are ALL DOOMED to fail and again Ford is not recalling them. The transmission shop said $2000 and the repair may last 60K miles - stay away!
