2013 Ford Fusion SE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


I bought a new 2013 Fusion SE June 2013.
In Feb 2014, at 7,500 mi. the engine light came on.
First fix was to replace the transmission (??) because Eco-boost engine design caused over-heating.
3 days later engine light came on.
Faulty igniter coil (??) was the cause this time & replaced.
2 days later engine light came on.
Engine needs to be replaced (!!??) due to initial over-heating problem; engine either "warped" or cracked.
It's the Ides of March; I've been waiting for my car for 2 weeks.
I'm supposed to get it back in 2 days; the following day,
I'm driving it from Albuq NM to LA CA.
I will let you know if I make it back w/ no issues.
Wish me luck.

Best Features

When it was running, I loved the car. Good value for the money.

Worst Features

Perhaps Ford was overly optimisic/aggressive in the redisgn of this model? I am now very timid with regard to this car's reliability, performance, design, and future value. I am interested to know if anyone else has experienced a similiar issue with overheating and/or poor transmission performance. I am more curious to know if this turns out to be a design problem that all drivers could experience. Fixing this problem with a new transmission & engine on a car with 7,500 miles cannot be cheap for Ford.
