This Car Is Great — UPDATED 05/15 BELOW ORIGINAL REVIEW --- Got one of the first ones in March 2009. Have driven it over 33,000 miles since and couldn't be happier. Ford service (routine) from Colorado to Florida has been great. Fun to drive, SYNC is great, playing my iTunes songs wirelessly via bluetooth is convenient. Nursed town driving gets over 45mpg, normal town driving gets 41, highway at 65mph gets about 37mpg, at 75mph it gets 34 or so. My mixed use is 38.5mpg UPDATE 05/2015: Well, I have owned this 2010 Fusion Hybrid for over 6 years now. This is BY FAR the best car I have ever owned with 140,000 trouble free miles and counting (knock on wood). I've driven from coast to coast to coast in all driving conditions having done only the prescribed 10,000 mile services at Ford dealerships. Updating the Nav software twice has been my only out of pocket expense beyond normal scheduled service and tires every 40K miles. Ford seems to have gotten it together with this one. I plan to keep this car even when I buy any other new vehicle. Reliable doesn't adequately describe Pearl (my Fusion... yeah, it deserved a name). I've never written a review on a car, much less update one six years later.

Overall A Good Car — This car has been a great car. Everything I need and more. I would write more, but I don't really have anything else to say. I've never had any problems with the engine, A/C, stereo, windows, gauges, or anything else.

Great All-round Sedan — glad to be getting a 2015 from the 2010! This car requires little maintenance, good safety rating, good for long cruises with mpg and the ride itself. Has some punch on the low end but won't be a smooth ride upwards of 70-80 mph.

Pros

Great Car for the Money!  Been very reliable and easy to perform maintenance.

Cons

4 cyl has adequate power.  I like the V6 power but this has delivered a consistent MPG over 30

Great Value Family Car — My wife loves the SYNC system and really enjoys the car. It's provided great Econ! I like its ease to maintain myself. It now has well over 100K and we have not seen any major repairs. We had an 07 accord prior to this Fusion. My wife much prefers the fusion to our accord.

Very Pleased — I don't really have anything bad to say about the car. Low maintenance costs and efforts to keep the car running, very nice looking car, good gas mileage, fun to drive. You feel as if you have complete control when you get behind the wheel of this vehicle.

Very Nice looking car, sharpe for male or female. Fuel econmy is very good I drive on the highway a lot and get about 32 miles per gallon.

Cons

Lacks power when trying to accelerate I used to have a Volvo s60 with a turbo so I am use to a car that can pick up speed.

Awesome Sedan — The Fusion Hybrid is a great car. It's roomy and comfortable on the inside, rides very smooth and quietly, and has a lot of great features. The options in my car included a sunroof and the SYNC audio system with improved speakers. I really enjoy driving it and while it's not the best fuel economy out there (and the newer Fusion Hybrids have significantly better gas mileage), I do not have to put gas into it very often.

Pros

Can run short distances in electric mode at less then 45mph if not uphill or strong torque need like fast acceleration.

Cons

Can't seem to get the per-tank mpg above 39.

Nice Hybrid — It's bigger and heavier than a Toyota Prius therefore it's mileage is not as good, but for it's size it does fairly good. It's more comfortable in the back seat than a smaller car so that is what I wanted it for since my wife and I have two children.

Sporty, Roomy, Efficient Sedan — Nice sporty look. Surprisingly roomy -- turns out this Fusion is about the same size as the 2001 Taurus it replaced. Quiet interior, well-damped suspension, very good speakers. 34 MPG highway per EPA sticker. I chose this car for my mother-in-law based on the 5* safety ratings and ended up liking this car a lot more than I expected.

Pros

Handles great, very economical, clean, like new, very comfortable!

Cons

The cons will only save you money on this car... Meaning you don't have the room of an SUV, but you also don't have the fuel expense. Instead you have a vehicle that will take you up the coast without refueling in every state.

Great Looking Economical Car With 25-34 Mpg! — We were totally taken by surprise when we initially test drove this car. Not only does it have great mpgs but it handles so wonderfully that it was a no brainer to buy. We plan to actually buy a newer one if not upgrade to a Taurus. No one I know who owns one of these cars has one complaint... Even Ford said there has not been one recall or issue with this car since day one. There's really no maintenance associated with this model! Runs like a champ and has great power.
