What should I look for in a used Ford Fusion estate?

Ford is the epitome of average when it comes to reliability. It usually finishes mid-table in our regular Reliability Surveys, meaning its cars experience an average amount of faults, which take an average amount of time to fix and dealers charge an average amount for the repairs.

However, the Fusion is based on the Fiesta, and the Fiesta is much better than the average. It's one of Ford's most reliable motors and there have been very few reports of problems with the car. Similarly, we've heard of very few problems with the Fusion, and considering the two cars' close links, that's no coincidence.
