Pros

AWD, leather seats, SYNC

Cons

Mileage isn't the best

115

2008 Ford Fusion V6 Sel Awd — Performance - The AWD on the Ford Fusion is great! It handles wonderfully in the snow. The 3.0L DOHC V6 has adequate power for the car. There could be a bit more power I believe. Braking is not a problem with 4 wheel disc brakes. There is a bit of body roll, which could be fixed with a strut tower bar, rear sway bar, and possibly a front subframe X-brace. (All available from Steeda) Build Quality Seems to be good. There are no squeaks or rattles while driving. I have had this car for 4 months (August 08 to December 08) and I have had no mechanical problems. Appearance - Decent. It has good body lines and looks "sporty" to some people. Interior seems to be lacking quality in the dash, but all other areas are great. The leather seats are comfortable and the heated seat option works wonders. Cost of Ownership - Gas mileage is not too bad. The sticker for the V6 SEL AWD is 18 city and 25 highway. The car stays close to these figures. I have gotten 26.7 on the highway on a long trip. Maintenance seems to be carefree for the most part. So far, I have only changed the oil. Nothing else has had any issues that need attention. Fun Factor - This car is a blast to drive. It grips to the road wonderfully, even in the snow. When you want to be a little "reckless" you can turn the TCS off and do as you please. The car does have its limits though. Overall - This car is a great sedan overall. There is plenty of leg room in the front as well in the back. The trunk has ample room for many items. I think its a great buy for the money.

Hello...what haven't already metioned

Cons

There are none!!

I Would Deffiatly Recomend This Car To Anyone. Not Just My Friends. — I love the way it looks. It's a brand new make and I love it!!It's a sparling midnight blue. (My fave color.) It has silver trim,a moon roof, and it drives amazingly smooth. It has a sync feature. (Which my family just loves) It lets you talk on the phone through the car and you can plug you iPod right through the car. The sound is spetacular. When you're listening to the radio it tells you the name of the song, who sings it, and the station. I've wanted the sync factor in our cars for a while. It's well worth whatever extra money it takes to get it. This car is awesome to drive.

Best Car I Ever Owned! — My previous vehical was an F-150, so right away I was enjoying the gas milage. Before this purchase I was in the market for an SUV type vehicle, but the gas consumption and the price of a new SUV was just a bit out of my price range. While still in the dealer lot I glance over at the Fusion,and took a serious look at the sticker. I was looking at one with the sport package. I asked the dealer about it and he let me take a test drive. WOW! The acceration, turning and handling far exceeded my expectations! This thing has the heart of a Mustang GT! It was awesome! I was impressed so much I asked to see a Black colored Fusion with the same sport package. When he showed it to me, I said right away "This is the one I want!" It was loaded with every thing; Heated leather seats & mirrors, TCS, satillite radio, spoiler, electronic climate controls, slick sporty 18" rims and sticky 225 45 18 tires. I was surprised to see tires this wide on a car like this. It even had the special red inserts on the seats and the steering wheel to give it a race car look. 8 speaker 6 CD autiofile sound system, moon roof, Trip computer, reverse sensor, compass, and so much more! Ford really did it's homework on this car! I'am very happy with it!

Pros

Good looking car. Drives great when not having mechanical problems

Cons

Had to have transmission changed at 50,000 miles. Electrical and cruise control starting having trouble shortly after the transmission was changed. Severly underpowered.

Was Great At First...but Don't Recommend — Was happy with the car until we started having issues with the vehicle. Randomly slammed itself into 1st gear while going highway speed. Took it to the dealer and was told there was a problem with a "seal" and it was replaced. Was ok for a little while, but then whenever going uphill, the vehicle would slam into the next hear. Took the vehicle back 3 more times before threatening lemon law to get the problem fixed. Complete transmission replacement(lucky we had the extended warranty as it happened just after 50,000 miles) Electrical started acting up, and cruise control stopped working completely after transmission replacement. Had to trade it in.

Own It. — I love everything about this car. There are only a few options that, in comparison to a Lexus, it doesn't have. The warranty is great, it performs like crazy on the highway, and I wouldn't trade it in for anything. The brakes are awesome, road noise is about average to low, the appearance is sexy and it is too much fun to drive.

Pros

V6 is loud.

Cons

Nothing.

2008 Ford Fusion V6 — Very punchy acceleration. Brakes are standard. Handles like a muscle car. Its built pretty sturdy. You don't see many of this model year around. Its a loud V6. The engine wants to be a V8. It could be a unique looking car if modded correctly.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Ford Fusion — I love my Ford Fusion. It's a great car for a great price. The gas mileage is great. I'm still averaging 25 to the gallon in the city. It has great acceleration for a 4 cyl. It's comfortable to drive. There is plenty of room for a small car. You won't believe the trunk space. It's great! The only thing I don't like about my car is the color of the seats. The color is way to light! I wish it had the temp. and compass in the mirror. Overall it is a great car. Why get a Honda for much more money?

Ford Fusion Se — It has decent performance levels, considering it is a 4 cylinder. With that comes pretty good gas mileage as well. Car looks awesome and the interior is also great. Half cloth half vinyl. Very comfortable. The only downfall is the noisy engine.

The Most Reliable Vehicle I Have Ever Owned — The vehicle excelled in acceleration and handling. Had many safety features. The Fusion has a premium sound system along with Sirus radio and a 6 cd changer. Driving the Fusion was such a pleasure with it's smooth ride, quiet and comfortable interior.

Family Style — Very nice for the price....one day I would like to upgrade to a MKZ. SYNC is awesome. I would like a moon roof. This version of the fusion could be more of a rabbit. It corners very nicely but standing on the gas leaves me wanting a bit more power but for around town it is pretty perfect.
