The cars engine being diesel is audiable in the cabin but its not anoying it sounds good and i find myself not putting on the radio just so i can enjoy the sound of the engine, it is not a fast car in the 1.4 TDCI but feels solid and has a good pull about it. all storage compartments are fantastic and the door wells are deeper than normal, briliant again, the underseat storage on passangers side isnt that big but holds most that you would have normaly kept in your glovebox which in turn frees up that for something else. the glovebox also being bigger than usual. The boot is big with flat loading which makes also as a good seat on a day out, as it also has carier bag hooks and elasticated bottle holder which was rather well thought out.This car is best suited if you want to do the kids school run comfortably then drive off down the motorway to your days work in a relaxing driving machine, having minimal clutter around you in a high enough driving position to give that little enjoyment first thing on a monday morning so definatly ask for a test drive before dismissing this lovely car.
As small hatchbacks go the Fusion 3 is not bad at all. It suffered a major setback when Jeremy Clarkson announced it was "a box designed for old geezers" (actually most drivers do seem to be over 50!), but maybe they are more driven by practicalities than street cred.
Cabin noise is a problem and suspension is lousy especially if you try to take speed bumps at more than 25mph. I've had many complaints from my back seated passengers about the suspension.
On the plus side, I get many mpg and it handles like a dream. Steering is wonderful and with the back seats folded down you can fit an awful lot of clutter in this car, in fact I'm sure my Fusion thinks he's an estate!
Would I buy another? Probably not. Do I regeret buying this one? Absolutely not. It's a fun drive and goes like a goodun on the straight.
I traded in my VW Badge for this car! Overall, I rate this car great, except there is a common clutch problem apparently, which is why I felt prompted to submit a review. That aside! It's doing me well at 25,000 on the clock.
This car is OK and not a bad drive, but for service purposes, the team in my area seem to charge what they want.
For a £55 fuel pipe and some injector seals, it cost £437 in total. Nowhere else could do the job due to warranty restrictions and the patent is not available anywhere else.
If your Fusion seems sluggish in performance, then the fuel line might be damaged - I had mine done and it seems to have a bit more power now.
This car is an ideal family car and with the new tax charges, it is even cheaper to keep on the road. The running costs are very good - the estimated fuel economy is quite close to manufacturer's figures and a full tank is about £35 - that does roughly 600 miles.
We like this car and recommend at least a test drive to see if you can get on with it yourself.
