Very swift on lights, easy to park, fuel economy, city car with no problem to pass through a rougher terrain or snow in the winter. It passes my snow covered street so easy in compare with my previous cars. (maybe also good winter tires, bridgestone LM20 blizzak makes the thing)
Interior look is now great after the facelift, but quality is not 100%. I can listen some weir sounds everywhere. Usual owner probably wouldnt listen them :)
Car is a little bit more noisy than other smart common rails, but in compare with Skoda Octavia 1.9TDI i have in my company it is silent man. :)
I would recommend it to every taller person who cant fit into fiesta and for a minimal additional cost get so much more. And 1.4 or 1.6 is the best deal IMHO.
I bought My ford Fusion 1.6 Plus in Jan 06 on a ford ticket (25% off) this is the only reason i bought a new ford.
I am very pleased to say that the car has been fault less but the dealer was absolutly rubbish because when i first got the car there was a bit of trim hanging off inside and also the rear passenger side privacy glass had swirl marks in it both these items where fixed by other dealers. (Dont go to M53 Ford)
The 1.6 engine is punchy and yet economical, the car is also faster than my previous car a nissan almera 1.8 sport+. I would recomend getting the voice control/bluetooth good for those on the move phone calls, Electronic Automatic Temperature Control just press auto and the car does the rest, and last but definetly not least the ESP Pack which comprises ESP side airbags curtain airbags and centre headrest, (£750). ESP is absolutly amazing in the icy winters we have in britain sorts out the skidding and pulling away.
Would i buy another? NO because to small for my requirments i am now going to get a year old Mondeo estate ghia TDCI 130.
Not a bad little ride although it could well do with some refinements as the interior looked like a bit of a rush job on friday, boot space is fine but engine is a little breathless in getting out of first second gear but does cruise well when it reaches speed. all in all a nice little car and a nice step up from my old fiesta which is still going strong at 13 years old ( i will retire this one to little trips about town) it does have an annoying habit when you put on the rear heater as the button does not pop back out when you press it as it gets stuck. but all in all I am pleased with it.
I have just sold my Fusion after almost three years. In a straight line on a good road, there was nothing wrong with it. However, the slightest bump or turn and you felt everything!
I wouldn't suggest you drive a Fusion anywhere where the roads are not well maintained. The gearbox was never brilliant and despite being told that it will get better with age, it never did. First and second gear were useless.
The storage compartment on top of the dashboard broke several times, the plastic around the seatbelt started to wear away and part of the exterior trim just fell off. Finally the battery light starting coming on and the garage could give me no reason for this.
The running costs were fairly low, except when you used the air-conditioning! I'm sorry to say, but after a month of driving my new car, I do not miss the Fusion at all.
