As soon as I bought the car there was a bad shaking problem at highway speeds, eventually I take it in and after 4 trips to the shop they finally tell me it’s cracked supports on the right side, thankfully covered under warranty. A little after that the USB ports stopped working, that would be 600 dollars to even look at so guess I won’t have those anymore. Then it was the gas cover, now it doesn’t stay closed and doesn’t open on its own I have to use something to wedge it out of the quarter panel, guess I won’t have that either. Radio constantly doesn’t connect to my phone or just drops connection. Now the back seat won’t close and I’m told “Yeah it does that sometimes”. Those issues, coupled with things constantly warping or falling off due to the heat has made this car a nightmare I regret buying.
I bought a Ford Fusion and since I have had it is has been in the shop for several recalls. My transmission had problems at 40,000 into owning the car and of course as soon as my warranty goes out the transmission goes out again and now they want $5,500 for a car that I literally just gave them $2,000 two months ago. I am so disappointed and upset. That 2013 Ford Fusion needs to be recall. I had a Tarus and and Expedition but this Fusion has been nothing but problem! I AM PISSED!
I bought the 2013 Fusion because of the new style and fuel economy... However I wish I knew about the rust issues. My car has less than 36k on it and has been garage kept as much as possible. I wash it regularly and was it no less than twice a year. But my hood is rusting at about a dozen locations (no chips in paint) and Northgate Ford in Cincinnati Ohio told me "it's a known problem with the fusion and multiple other Ford vehicles. However since it's over 3 years old and hasn't gotten holes in the metal (YET) that it's MY PROBLEM. Nor did they want to even look at it. I feel like Ford is using the same metal they used in the 1970-1980's that would rust to the ground in less than 10 years, salt or not. Funny how Chevy or all of the Asian vehicles don't have this PROBLEMS!
this car has a history fro coolant leaks and has multiple recalls for engine fires for the 13-14 year models i had the coolant level sensor install recall completed but the car cannot handle the boost pressure now have a cylinder coolant leak long story short out of warranty and they want $2100 to tear down to find the issue not including the price for repairs. their recalls do not find and fix the underlying cause but do a little more to prevent liability on ford. sensor install is to tell you its low to prevent the engine fire but this again does not fix the underlying cause for the leak. this only tells you there is a problem they added it because they know there will be a leak and to prevent them from having to buy back a burned up car. and when you know there is a problem you take it in for repair lining their pockets
2013 Ford Fusion Titanium 4dr Sedan w/EcoBoost (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
I really enjoy owning and driving this car. It is a well balanced machine. It has good power and is very comfortable and quiet on the road. It drives like a much smaller car but is large enoght to carry four adults. The only downside is the intake valve fouling issue common to earlt GDI engines.
