2009 FORD FUSION
Really solid 4-door sedan. Looks classy, but not flashy. Satisfying to drive (though the accelerator can be a little jumpy), very roomy in the front, and the Sync audio system is super convenient for a music lover like myself. The steering wheel controls for Bluetooth and USB devices will for sure come in handy when Texas bans handheld phones while driving in January. The only major downsides are that the gas mileage leaves something to be desired (not terrible, not great), and that I miss having a rear windshield wiper like with my old Honda van. Overall, well worth the money in good condition.

2007 FORD FUSION
AWD is great, feels very secure in all weather. Plenty of power and feels safe, feels like a substantial car not a tin can. Wish the mpg was a bit better, but its the price you pay for power and awd.
2010 FORD FUSION
I bought the hybrid fusion when gas was $3+ a gallon. I traded a Town Car in. Fusion was a really good car. Fun to drive, lits of features, avg 40 mpg. Downside, doesn't have the comfort of a Town Car. I just traded the Fusion in for another Town Car since fas is now $1.87 here. No car payment, much less taxes and liability insurance only. Win-win!
2010 FORD FUSION
So far so good. Quality seems to be very good. Fit and finish is very good. The fusion handles very well. It feels solid. It has been nice getting over 40mpg. At times, it has gotten over 50mpg.
2008 FORD FUSION
I helped my son and his fiancee buy it. They love it. Handles well, mechanic praised the well-kept engine. Should be a great first car for them for 5 years or more.
2011 FORD FUSION
Reliability, use it to commute to work. Love the smooth ride. It's not a speed demon, but does have very good pickup being a 4 cyl.
2006 FORD FUSION
Needed a car, very peppy, love the heated leather seats and steering wheel controls. Wish it had daytime running lights love the tight ride

2014 FORD FUSION
We wanted something a little sportier than the Ford Five Hundred that we had. We were impressed with the ride, the handling and the comfort of the Fusion.
Our adult son had a Fusion and was hit in the drivers side door and pushed into a traffic light pole. He walked away from the accident with no injuries. That also factored into our decision to purchase a Fusion.
We absolutely love it, and are very happy with our choice.

2011 FORD FUSION
Nice car! Comfortable leather, decent gas mileage. I got it for a very good price compared to what the book value was. So far I have been satisfied.
2008 FORD FUSION
Great car for the price. Very inexpensive. Runs great. No problems mechanically at all. Very spacious. I would buy another one without question.
Used Ford Fusion Information
Ford has produced two versions of the Fusion that are both very different from one another. In Europe, there was a compact multi-purpose vehicle sold between 2002 and 2012, which was a longer version of their popular Fiesta model. However, in the U.S., the Fusion has represented Ford's entry into the midsize car segment since the 2006 model year. The Ford Fusion has been through one redesign since it was introduced, with the second-generation model making its debut for 2013. Numerous engine options have been offered throughout the Fusion's production run. It's also available as a hybrid model, and is one of the few midsize cars that offers an all-wheel drive option.
The initial run of the first-generation Fusion was from 2006-2009, and on release the Fusion was offered in S, SE and SEL trim levels. Front-wheel drive and a five-speed manual transmission were standard, while a five-speed automatic was available. When it launched, the base Fusion came with a 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 160 horsepower. A 3.0-liter V6 with 221 horsepower was available on higher trims.
All-wheel drive became available starting with the 2007 model, and Ford added elements such as front-seat air bags and satellite radio. The Ford Sync media and communication system appeared for the first time on the 2008 model.
The Fusion received a number of updates for the 2010 model year. A more fuel-efficient 2.5-liter 175 horsepower engine became standard, while a 3.0-liter V6 with 240 horsepower was optional. An available Sport model received even more power, thanks to a 263 horsepower 3.5-liter V6. With a good mix of performance and its notably spacious cabin, the 2010-2012 Ford Fusion is a popular and competitive option on the used market.
A fully redesigned Fusion debuted for the 2013 model year, and Ford's midsize car was now available with three distinct engine choices. A 175-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine was standard in the base Fusion, while a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder that produces 178 horsepower was optional. At the top of the range, a turbocharged 2.0-liter four cylinder engine with 240 horsepower was available. Front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission are standard, while all-wheel drive is available.
2013 and newer Fusion models come standard with features like automatic headlights, a USB port and Ford's voice-activated Sync system.
Since 2009, the Ford Fusion has consistently won Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick+ awards from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for its strong performance in crash tests.
