What a disaster!!!!
The 2017 Ford Fusion Sport is AWESOMELY fun to drive and is as comfortable as it is agile. I like the active dampening compared to my 2015 Ford Fusion, but oh how I miss that car compared to this one. Ive called Ford Roadside Assistance 5 times in less than three months to deal with electrical issues with my vehicle, which has less than 3000 miles on it. Finally decided to take it into the dealership yesterday, couldnt get a loaner, and sat there for several hours. But alas! The problem wasnt the battery as I suspected but instead a measly fuse that has been causing unwarranted drain to serially kill my battery. Great! Until I hop in my car this morning and it wont start... What a joke! Shipped from the manufacturer with a lemon of a battery or potentially worse - electrical problems. The dealer claims they cant replace the battery until it fails on the rotunda, and they say it has "passed" their specs. What's truly troubling is how much I love driving this vehicle but what use does a car have if it sits in your driveway without being able to turn on? Dealer wont fix it in a timely manner or to customer's satisfaction. I likely wont be purchasing another Ford again, and I certainly cant recommend the brand to any of my friends or family.
Great until.......
I took delivery 1-3-17. I drive under 6000 miles /yr on average. As of today the car has only 350 miles on it. This car is loaded with all the bells and whistles and is the "top of the line" Fusion model. Last week the car's electronics had a total meltdown in my driveway and had to be towed to the dealer for warranty repair. Until I called Ford Customer service to complain the dealer was content to add the car to their repair queue, saying it would probably be two weeks until they got to the repair.......... adding that they had NO idea what was wrong with it. FORD stepped up and told the dealer to get it done and authorized them to do what was necessary to FIX the car and at least get me into a rental. When the dealer was forced to respond, they found out the audio system had a "draw" on the electronics and was never turning off, draining the battery. So, I still do not have the car back because they don'the have a fix for it at this at this point. Maybe I will get the car back before the 2018 models hit the dealers..........
Horrible Lemon
I haven't had my brand new for over 6 months and it has been in the shop over 10 times. Ford keeps coming up with excuses why they can't buy the vehicle back. When it comes to providing me with another form of transportation if they don't have any vehicles available they tell me I have to pay out of my pocket and they MAY reimburse me. Ford volunteers to pay one month note which is still not paid so I am receiving harassing phone calls from Ford credit all day plus it is being reported on my credit as delinquent payment. I will never recommend anyone to purchase from Ford especially a brand new car.

2017 Ford Fusion video

MARK TAKAHASHI: I'm editor Mark Takahashi. And here's an Edmunds Expert Rundown of the 2017 Ford Fusion. The current Fusion has been around for a while and remains a strong choice. But the competition is heating up. The turbocharged four-cylinder engine choices deliver plenty of power while returning good fuel efficiency. The powerful turbo V6 represent the hot rod fusion, but at the expense of fuel economy. We like the exterior styling. But that sloping rear roof line does cut down on visibility and back seat headroom. Trunk space is still decent for the class though. Interior quality is comparable to other sedans. And the overall design is pleasant with angular accents. Mid-range trims look even more modern with a SYNC 3 system that eliminates some of the physical buttons. As far as operation goes, SYNC 3 is one of the better infotainment systems, a vast improvement over the previous MyFord Touch miss. The bottom line is the Ford Fusion holds its own against the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, and Mazda 6 thanks to its variety and models and engines. But it comes up a little short when it comes to rear seat room.

2017 Ford Fusion Expert Rundown

Looking for a midsize sedan with solid power, excellent fuel economy, distinctive styling and a wide array of tech features? The 2017 Ford Fusion might be a good match. Here's a quick rundown of what we like, what we don't and the bottom line from the Edmunds editors.

By car standards, the 2017 Ford Fusion is middle-aged. The current Fusion was introduced as a 2013 model and became instantly beloved for its sleek profile and swiped-from-an-Aston-Martin front grille. But after four years, it could look pretty stale in the marketplace. Time for a midcycle refresh and update.

By the standard of refreshes, the Fusion has undergone a subtle one. Of course there's a new front grille, and it's joined by new headlights in a redesigned fascia. Inside, the conventional automatic shifter has given way to a new rotary control. The big advantage of rotary knobs, however, is that they use less space to do their job, and Ford hasn't radically changed the center console to free up that real estate.

But then there's Ford's new Sync 3 entertainment and information system, which is easier to use, more fast and responsive, and features much clearer graphics than the unloved MyFord Touch system that it replaces.

Added to the option list, among other things, are LED headlights, lane keeping assist, a rear cross-traffic alert system, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning system, and a revised automatic parking system that will both parallel park and perpendicular park without driver input. There's also a new Platinum trim level that packs in practically every option and adds amenities such as quilted leather upholstery and a power-adjustable steering wheel.

The most exciting Fusion will now be the new Fusion Sport V6, which comes powered by a turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 with 325 horsepower. With 350 pound-feet of torque on tap, it should prove to be the quickest mainstream midsize sedan for sale in North America.

The base Fusion S — selling primarily to fleet customers &mdash is powered by the familiar, non-turbocharged 2.5-liter Duratec four-cylinder engine, which is rated at 175 horsepower. The popular SE model comes with the 2.5L Duratec standard but can also be had with a fuel-sipping, 1.5-liter EcoBoost turbocharged-four with 181 hp or a robust 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine with 245 hp. The more luxuriously equipped Titanium and Platinum models get the 2.0-liter EcoBoost standard. All models use a six-speed automatic transmission as standard, and the SE and above offer the option of all-wheel drive.

Ford also offers Fusion Hybrid and plug-in hybrid Fusion Energi models that are covered under their own reviews.

With solid entries from virtually every mainstream manufacturer, finding the right midsize sedan for you can be confusing. If the 2017 Ford Fusion appeals, Edmunds is here to help you find the one that's just right for you.
