"I had been driving German made cars for 20 yrs. and when retiring decided to use the cost of a new German car for traveling and investigated American made cars. Did A LOT of research and the Fusion kept coming up. Went to several dealers, test drove it and bought it new in 2009. I can't say enough about how much I am pleased with it. Minimal service, easy to drive, love the Blis and Sync systems and rear back up camera. I would not have believed an American car could compare to a German made, but it sure does and for much less $."
"I have owned this car for nine days and I have drove this car everyday. My personal opinion is that this car is an excellent car. It gets very good fuel economy and it has very good handling. Although it is a Ford, I have to say, It has no issues. If you don't abuse the car, It is a very good and affordable vehicle."
Pros: "dependible, good handling, 3.5L V6 good power"
Cons: "Material quality issues"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7
"Good power with the 3.5L. Handles and rides well. Sony sound system is great.
Wheel alignment from the factory was terrible and dealer brush me off.
Sun roof has issues closing after a piece of plastic broke.
Parking brake froze up because a rubber boot on one end of the cable rotted and let water into the cable. This after only 34K miles."
