2005 Ford Fusion Review


Economy,cheap insurance,cheap RFL,funky airvents!


Build quality,exterior shape.


Ford Fusion Tdci — The Ford Fusion,is supposed to be a crossover type of vehicle,however,Ford;s application leaves a lot to be desired! It;s neither tall enought to be a 4x4,nor does it have enough seats to be called an mpv. It;s more practical than the Fiesta that it;s based on,and it is quite roomy,even in the rear. The 1.4 TDCI engine,although lacking in outright performance,more than makes up for this with economy of upto 60mpg,and is more refined than diesels of yesteryear. Servicing costs are very acceptable,being a Ford,and so far it has never broken down. The Fusion drives much the same as the Fiesta,so the handling is safe as long as your not trying to break the lap record at the Nurburgring,and only displays slightly more body roll due to the increased height over its Fiesta sibling. Unfortunatly,the build quality does lack somewhat,this car appears to have been built down to a budget,with acres of grey plastic and ill fitting dashboard pieces,also the exterior trim has come adrift on more than one occasion!! I think i would own one again if the build issues have been addressed,although a Focus econetic looks more likely to appear on the top of my shopping list.

2005 Ford Fusion Review


little gasoline, little parking space


bad when you accelerate or go uphill


Ford Fusion - A Nice Car, If You Are Family And Not Racing All Over The Place — I must say I guess I was not a fan of Ford before. But I must say, there is a secure car. One that will take you from A to B and it won't cost you much. As it does not slurp up so much gasoline. However, on the downside, it really does not have a strong motor but is a heavy car. You always notice when you go uphill... Everyone will overtake you. This annoys me often. But then again, when everyone is complaining the gasoline prices, there is a big smile on my face. Thumbs up for Ford Fusion. Funnily enough, here in Ibiza, you see them everywhere as they are the perfect mix of town and country car in my mind. Cheers. Chrys

2005 Ford Fusion Review


comfortable seating height & interior space & entry/ exit. engine/ transmission


low speed ride comfort, cost of spares


The Best Car I Have Used So Far — I bought it coz it had the best seat height, like sitting on a chair at home rather than inside a bucket. Interior space is awesome...friends having Optra's or Corolla's comment immediately after getting in the car. Besides, the glass area is wonderful, giving you clear vision all-round. The engine & transmission of Ford in India is to be experienced...its a joy to drive such a slick vehicle. There are problems though...terrible, terrible low speed ride. Bump, thump, thump, jar, jar, jar on Mumbai roads. Beyond 40 kmph there is a remarkable improvement in ride, and after 80 kmph there are very few cars that can beat the Fusion. Cost of ownership is high...best to take an annual maintenance scheme...too many small items fail...door mirror ass'ly, window guards, splash guards, hoses, wiper blades...replacement costs at Ford India are much too high for comfort.
