    My car

    WHERE DO I START....ALL PEDALS ARE TOO FAR TO THE LEFT YOUR RIGHT KNEE ACHES, YOUR MUSCLE AT TOP OF RIGHT LEG ACHES, NOWHERE TO PUT LEFT FOOT NEXT TO CLUTCH, SEATS ARE SO HARD A PARK BENCH IS MORE COMFORTABLE, REALLY HURTS MY BACK, HUBBY HAS THE SAME PAIN IN LEG MUSCLE AND KNEE, I'M 5 FOOT HE IS 6 FT. THERE ARE NO BRAKES, IVE TAKEN IT BACK TO FORD AND THEY INSIST THAT ITS FINE, IT WONT STOP, FRIGHTENED TO GO FASTER THAN 40 IN CASE I NEED TO STOP. HEATED FRONT WINDOW IS DANGEROUS AS IT DOESN'T CLEAR TO THE RIGHT OF WINDSCREEN SO YOU DON'T SEE OTHER VEHICLES AT JUNCTIONS, ROUNDABOUTS ETC. WHEN LIGHTS ARE ON AUTOMATIC THEY COME ON FULL BEAM AND BLIND ON COMERS! IVE DRIVEN MANY FORDS THROUGHT 80S, RENAULT, VAUXHALL, TOYOTA, SEAT, BUT THIS IS A JOKE!! THE BEST THING IS THE FUEL ECONOMY, BUT I'M TOO SCARED TO GO FAST IN CASE IT WONT BRAKE!! REALLY WISH ID GONE FOR ANOTHER VEHICLE BUT NEEDED A FLAT BOOT FOR DISABLED SONS LABRADOR. HEATER BURNS MY LEG TOO. VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE FUSION BUT CANT AFFORD TO CHANGE IT.

    My car

    I bought a 53 Ford Fusion with less than £28k on the clock. Needed a small estate car for my dogs, so stupidly traded in my Clio. Have owned this for less than three months and so far, have had to replace steering rack and clutch. The car is now jumping when I accelerate. The spark plugs were replaced just over a month ago, so it's not that. I bought this car on the back of the What Car Reviews at the time and no-one had a bad word to say about it. I see, however, people are as disgruntled (to put it mildly) as I am. Not only that, the car's value has dropped by £1200 since I bought it! So can't afford to get rid of it now either. Thanks What Car!!

    My car

    As the Fusion is not the best looking car in the world it has not had the recognition it deserves. However this is one of the cleverest cars on the market for Space and Economy a true all rounder, it is also very comfortable which surpries me as I am over 6 ft. You have to get the 1.6 Deisel. I am going to buy one having driven several now.

    My car

    I'm staggered that other reviews are rating the running costs as economical as I only get 30-32 miles to the gallon, not good with the price of petrol these days.I had to take my car in because the glove compartment door wouldn't shut and I asked them to check the heater as it burns mt leg even when the heating is off, in fact if it wasn't automatic I wouldn't be able to drive it, at least I can move my leg away, however I was told that this problem is common with the Fusion, the Focus and the Fiesta, and nothing can be done about it?? My car is 11 months old and has already started the mysterious creaking and squeaking that drives you mad on long journeys.
