My 2006 Ford Fusion Review

I bought my 2006 Fusion at the year end model change over in Sept., 2006. Having someone in the family that worked for Ford I got a great deal on it. I wouldn't have lost 1 penny on it IF I had sold it in the first year. I'm so glad I didn't. After 12 yrs I am considering buying a new car...but after reading so many of the reviews and how many miles others got from theirs I am hesitant. My car has less than the average 12 yr old car but still over 100K so my son (the mechanic) is urging me to consider trading up. Honestly this car hasn't cost me anything other than routine oil changes, tires and 1 tune up. The only thing I can say bad about it is the paint has chipped down to bare metal in several spots over the wheel wells. (oh yes, I did have one other expense - I did take the car to our local body shop and have them paint the rocker panels and they also coated them with something to help it resist the salt of Ohio roads in winter). A wise man once said, " the cheapest car to drive is the one you already have (if it's paid off)" He said, "even if you have to put a new engine or transmission in it - if it is sound in other respects , that's still cheaper than paying tens of thousands for a new one". So I am considering taking the car to the body shop and having them touch up all those bare metal spots. Also considering investing in an aftermarket warranty just in case something major does go.

Do the maintenance this vehicle will provide for all your transportation needs.

I have been very happy with my Ford Fusion since I purchased it in 2006. It is a good reliable car as I have kept up with general maintenance, i.e.. Oil changes, other fluid changes, brakes, tire rotations, and tire purchase after 50, 000 miles as stated in my owner manual to keep in running in good working order. This vehicle is currently on a recall notice for the airbags to which I am waiting from my dealership to notify me when they can replace these failed bags by the manufacturer (thousands are on a long list of. Takata airbag inflators) other than this terribly long wait of defectIve airbags to be replaced, ( I do not blame Ford, just Taketa for making faultiest products. I really like, enjoy and this is a fine vehicle for me.

The Ford Fusion is a great, reliable car.

The car is really great and reliable. It has good features and a good look overall. It is easy to use and handles well. The only thing I do not like about it is it is transmission. For example, when you are going on the highway, it sounds like the car struggles to get up to speed right away. When you really step on the gas it takes a few seconds for it to actually get going. Once it gets up to speed it is fine though. I have had no other problems with this car. It is my first car and so far I am loving it!
