The only things that have been an issue are the mass airflow sensor that the dealer didn't want to warranty and it eats Rear brakes every 10K miles or so. All in all, the vehicle is very inter-active with the driver. It has a suprising amount of get up and go from the Escape. While the current environment isn't quite perfect for the introduction of the Fusion line's first dedicated performance model, that doesn't stop the Sport from being truly entertaining. Furthermore, the entire instrument panel is new and made from a seamless, soft-to-the-touch material that fits with tight tolerances for a high-quality appearance.
During several extensive test drives in California, pilots from TheCarConnection. Incredibly quiet inside, even when lighting up the tires. Adult Bike fits in trunk with 1 seat down. Geared for the speed limit I guess. It runs great, has all the bells and whistles.
In any case, I'm just wondering if the 18 mpg is abnormally low? A six-speed automatic transmission is also available for the Fusion S. The only downside to a powerful V6 engine coupled with an all-wheel-drive system is. The all-new front-end design, beginning with a bold, three-bar chrome grille and racecar-like chrome-trimmed intakes at the bottom of the nose, has a muscular confidence that makes you take a second, more interested, look. I also filled up the tank with E85 one time, which lowered the mileage even more. During Los Angeles morning rush, we drove the Fusion Hybrid in heavy traffic from the Sunset Strip 10 miles west along hilly, snaking Sunset Boulevard to the beach, then south to Santa Monica Pier, all the while proceeding at a distinctly non-funereal pace. Perhaps the best compliment that one could bestow upon any hybrid is that it performs as well as a vehicle powered by an internal combustion engine. Competent but Lackluster As well as freshening the interior and exterior for 2010, Ford paid attention to sound deadening and to fine-tuning the ride and handling, fitting 2.
Our Take on the 2010 Ford Fusion The 2010 model year is a big one for the Ford Fusion, with its many updates and upgrades: We've already reviewed the Ford and. Our second day with the Fusion came with four inches of snow, which gave us yet another reason to recommend the all-wheel-drive system. I absolutely love the car, its features and styling. Options, meanwhile, are expanded to include rear parking-assist sensors and heated outside mirrors. Ok, back to the Fusion. Also, I thought I read on here somewhere that the car gets better mileage over time? Choice, however, is a very good thing, especially when it comes to great product.
Its well-formed flanks, accented by gleaming streaks of chrome, give the Fusion both a dynamically fresh appearance and excellent aerodynamic efficiency. The interior can alternatively be accented in gray or red; go for the gray. Ford delivered vastly improved quality while also offering impressive driving dynamics, room for five adults and a choice of four- and six-cylinder engines. While reviews read by TheCarConnection. This excellent fuel economy comes from a sophisticated hybrid powertrain, hooked to a quiet 155-hp 2. Headroom was reasonably good in back, given the downward taper of the roofline, but leave the fedora in your Bentley. The Fusion's makeover leaves it looking sportier and more refined than the model it replaces, but without some sporty moves, the beauty is only skin deep.
It has awesome fuel economy and is very quiet. Autoblog accepts vehicle loans from auto manufacturers with a tank of gas and sometimes insurance for the purpose of evaluation and editorial content. Practically the only indication of this is by watching Eco-Guide. Probably not because the projected retail that Ford predicted saying it would be better than Camry was way off the mark with a similar Camry being worth at least 30-40% more than the Fusion. The 2010 Ford Fusion has been significantly restyled for this model year, and while the latest Ford Fusion isn't exactly the next generation of Fusion, it does represent a major evolutionary step.
The Fusion's six-speed transmission is smooth and shifted fast enough on its own to win out over the Select Shift manual shifting option. The Fusion is not only good looking but it is also reliable and good on. The driver's seat had good lateral support, decent lumbar support, and proper elevation at the cushion's front to inhibit submarining slipping under the belts in a head-on impact. The standard powerplant for the 2010 Fusion S is a 2. Highway fuel mileage has increased over time also. It seems as if Dearborn has been scrimping on one of the most important systems in an automobile. The ample powertrain proved to be very engaging on the straights, with enough power to keep your mind on the accelerator and lesser sedans in the rear view mirror.
The 2010 Ford Fusion, and in particular, the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid, delivers contemporary styling, a first-class driving experience, and world-class fuel mileage. The 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid model will appeal to those who don't want to flaunt their sensibilities; only the Hybrid badges give you obvious visual confirmation that you're looking at the most efficient mid-size sedan on the road. The design requires a new hood and front fenders, and the result is as sculptural as it is contemporary. This is my first Ford I have owned in a length of time and so far it has been my favorite car. The rear suspension was also improved by moving the pivot points for the control arms closer to the center of the car, reducing body roll in the process. Along with a standard sport-tuned suspension, the Fusion V6 Sport also boasts 18-inch painted alloy wheels.
