Reviews for 2010 Ford Fusion
I LOVE my new car
I love the Ford Fusion I recently purchased. It has easy handling and gets great gas mileage! I was worried that moving from n SUV to a four door would make me feel too cramped -- well not with this car! It has roomy front and back seats and a large trunk to boot! Definitely look at this car when you are thinking of purchasing!
Ford Fusion Sport, or not
I recently purchased the 2010 Ford Fusion Sport (the front-wheel drive version). When considering this vehicle, keep in mind at all times that it is a family vehicle...it is NOT a sports car by any definition. It has a slightly larger and more powerful engine than the normal 3.0L V-6, but it's pretty low on torque so it doesn't FEEL quick or fast. The engine sounds pretty nice when under full throttle, but it gulps down a surprising amount of fuel when doing so, and when just lightly accelerating it almost sounds the same as the 4 cylinder engine. The Sport version doesn't have any suspension refinements to enable it to handle any better than the normal Fusions (in fact, the 4 cylinder models handles better due to being lighter and having a manual transmission)...but, with the larger and heavier wheels and lower-profile tires, the ride is noticeably choppier. However, despite the lack of sportiness, you do pay a pretty significant penalty in fuel economy...I average 19mpg in split city/highway driving, while my girlfriend with an older 4-cylinder model averages 25-26mpg. The interior is "ok" but definitely not great. The front seats are too bolstered in the sides, so I have to sit with my shoulders hunched (and I'm less than 180lbs so I'm not a large person)...meanwhile, the back padding feels non-existent, and provides no support to my back, even with adjusting the lumbar support. The dash area is covered in plastics which you'd never see in an similarly-priced European model. The entry into the back seats is actually fairly bad...my 3-year-old daughter has more difficulty stepping up into the car than my old 2-door sports car, and at the same time the roof is lower so she (and I) consistently bonk our heads. Meanwhile, the back seats are so high up that she can't get herself into the car seat (which she can do even in the ex's Hummer). As for the exterior...it's great...until you get to the back. The trunk is too flat and tall, and looks like something from a 1990s Toyota Corolla. It really is a letdown for the rest of the exterior (and all of the car's reviewers have said the same thing). Honestly, given the ability to wait a few months, I would've taken the 2013 Fusion in a heartbeat over this model, as the 2013 fixes all of my complaints.
2010 Ford Fusion
The four cylinder engine is an adequate performer (a six would have been peppier but we wanted a gas-saver) and it has gotten excellent mileage so far, delivering 31 mpg on a recent 300 mile trip. The overdrive lockout works great on downhill runs, dropping down the gears automatically to hold the speed. After a month of driving we couldn't be happier with our choice. We get lots of comments on the styling and the "electric blue" color.
