"My daughter recommends that my car looks brand new lows miles and will command high trade in value so she wants to see me trade up to higher end or newer car. I am in my 80's - love my car - loved the ford dealer who always took car of me - I took very good car of my car and it has been very good to me... Do I take advantage of the high trade in value and get newer - with a loan that I dont need? Will there be more value in this next trade up or will I lose the value in my current perfect car?"
Cons: "Bad turning radius; bad visibility; noisy."

"At 76,600 miles: blown engine, on the V6. This despite a change of oil by Ford 6,000 miles earlier. No warning whatsoever. Also need to replace catalytic converter; and replace transmission mount. At 70,000 miles: air conditioning went out. $1,050 repair bill, to replace a $50 sensor. This is no lie. I have VIN and repair estimates to prove.
I will never buy another Ford product again."
"We bought a brand new Fusion in 2006. Best car I've ever owned. In 5 yrs the ONLY mechanical issues I had were a blown turn signal bulb and after 4 yrs of yanking on passenger door handle, it gave out. But, not the vehicles fault. My wife continually abused that power lock. Anyway, we were in a crash that totaled it. A dump truck towing a back hoe hit us from behind. The car did EXACTLY what it was supposed to do......crumple. Although injured, I was 100% impressed with the cars crash handling. I believe the crumple technology saved my life, and my wife's.
So, we felt compelled to buy another. A fully loaded 2009 Fusion. It has performed as well as the 06. Outside of scheduled maintenance, the vehicle has been rock solid. Zero major errors. With 79,000 miles she's only had issues with the rear license plate light & the one tire pressure sensor gauge. Tires wear faster than any car I ever owned. But, you can't go wrong with this vehicle."
"This is the first car I ever owned that had NO issues.
Bought it new. It needed a battery after 5 years, front brakes after 60,000, rears at around 66,000.
It has no rust, runs great, and I would keep it for another two years if we weren't giving it to our daughter for my grandson. My only complaint, as if I need one, is it's short turn radius. Lets just say , if you are looking for a parking spot in Walmart's lot and you see one, you better plan ahead."
Pros: "Very roomy, comfy ride, can be a little peppy (V6)"
Cons: "May need some servicing in the transmission"

"This is a really good car, gets me where I need to go, but may need some servicing under the hood, but it is overall, a really good car, has plenty of room all over, lots of trunk space, gets about 22 or 23 mpg city, and about 24 mpg highway. It rides really well, interior is very well kept up, has a clean title, has some service records that can be provided, even from its recent oil change and tire rotation. Photos will be provided soon."
"I particularly Enjoy It's Highway Performance.It Hugs The Road. Secondly,I Enjoy The Bluetooth It'S Very Convenient To Have A Phone With Hands Free Access. If I Were To Purchase Another, I Would Buy The Same Year,Make & Model. The Paint Is Black With Silver Sparkles In It. I Get Lots Of Compliments From Others On It's Beauty.I Get Great Gas Mileage From This Vehicle.After Purchasing This Car I Found That There Was A Demand For This Particular Model, And I Base This On How Many Offers I Received Repeatedly On A Weekly Bases.And Of Course I Decline Any Offer Made."
