2011 Ford Fusion S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


I have to agree with the previous reviewer. My biggest complaint, and it ain't much, is the gear spacing. At 65 I'm turning 2500 RPM, where an automatic turns about 2000. Ford must have bought the trans from a different car company, and stuck it in the Fusion, with no engineering changes, other than fitment.It's a shame. Otherwise the car is quiet, rides really nice, and is very comfortable. I'm very happy with the car, but with a gear change, I could be ecstatic. I can easily drive at 40 MPH in 6th with no problem. Should not be the case. Average 26 mpg around town (suburban) and have hit 36 mpg at 65 mph. Going on a 2400 mile trip next week. Will see then what it does.

Best Features

The car is a joy to drive. Sync is fine. Have it also in a 2010 Mariner.

Worst Features

A taller gear in 6th, to match the auto trans ratios. A 1" higher roof-line would do wonders for my old arthritic neck, getting into the car.
