I was reading an article in Edmunds with really positive remarks on the Fusion, nothing about the new tranny, but they really dumped on the Lincoln MKZ. The 2 cars are built on the same chassis, etc.
The MKZ got a "C" rating with the Fusion
getting top marks. Kinda weird that the
Luxury car got a lower rating. Makes you
Just that no one complained yet about the Fusion. Take the reviews with a grain of salt and use the info, but not an absolute. If you see a trend, then you know to be concerned. Depending on what year, there are trans issues on the 'flare' and other shifting issues, just not on the fusions, but on the focus as well. Just get a manual if you can.
