  • Very fun car to drive - 2016 Ford Fusion
    By -

    I've had the car for about 1 month and I love it! I got the turbo AWD and it is a blast to drive. Interior is very comfortable and well made. The car just has a well build feel to it. Good construction and good materials. Great car. Highly recommend.

  • From Ford Family Forever! - 2016 Ford Fusion
    By -

    Rented a fusion on several business trips, always looked forward to getting back to my Audi... Then, my dad died, and my sister and brother went back to Fords. My dad only drove fords, even when he was a young race car driver... between the truck and mustang, I decided to go for a test drive. Saw the white gold fusion and spent a long time driving it. The rentals did not have the same feel as this lovely new car. I ended up leasing, because I know that in a few years I will want another, with updated options. The only real complaint I have.... I cannot lock the fuel cap and my gas has been stolen too many times. Calling Ford today to see if there is a way to lock it! I kept my Audi, and after a few months, I totally weaned myself off it. Truly back to being a ford fan! I have owned several cars, including 3 mustangs... looking back, there is nothing, at this point of my life, than comfort! Thank God for progress!

  • Get Real New Car Value - 2016 Ford Fusion
    By -

    I bought a 2016 1.5L Turbo SE Fusion with navigation in November and I was pleasantly pleased with the purchase experience. The car handles wonderfully and is comfortable both front and back. It is both economical and peppy, and really is a bargain vs. marginally more "upscale" vehicles. I have owned Lincolns, Acuras , Cadillacs, BMWs, ect. and this, in my opinion, is thus far, and by far, the best new car value I have ever obtained, even though may not be considered a "luxury " brand or model.

  • The base model isn't really a "base model" - 2016 Ford Fusion

    I've had my fusion just a little over 2 weeks and I'm in love with it. Even though it is a base model, it still has a lot of cool features and it really isn't a "base model"

  • Don't believe the hype! - 2016 Ford Fusion
    By -

    The car is incredibly noisy inside the cabin for such an expensive vehicle. Performance from the 2.0 Ecoboost is great for a 4 cylinder. Fuel mileage is rated at 34 mpg, but the best I have yet to see better than 30 on a long highway run. My V8 Mustang did better than that. It does get about 27 mpg combined. The transmission is very unpredictable. This is the one thing that really makes the car feel like a 4 cylinder. Don't pay for the tech package! I was really hoping the Sync system would have improved beyond its reputation by now, but it is about 50% useless - especially navigation. I am seriously thinking about replacing the factory system with an iPad but I would lose the only manual control of the heated steering wheel. The remote start works well with a great range. It's really nice to get in the car with pre-warmed seats and steering wheel.

  • Very Impressed! - 2016 Ford Fusion
    By -

    Other than a throttle control recall this base model is everything I expected. Performance is very adequate (for a 70 year old), gas mileage is unbelievable (40 MPG on on a drive from Las Vegas to Detroit (I never go over 70 MPH) ride and handling is the best I have ever had. The standard equipment is beyond my expectations. I had 2 Malibu's and they just didn't measure up to the Fusion in price or standard options. This Fusion is hands down the best value for the money in my 50 years of car ownership.

  • 2016 Ford Fusion Titanium AWD w/EcoBoost - 2016 Ford Fusion
    By -

    Picked up this car @ the end of May & have to say, so far, it has lived up to past reviews; it is a TERRIFIC car in all categories. The ride, build quality, comfort, tech features, etc. - it's all on point! The interior is VERY quiet & the sound system is like having the Boston Symphony Orchestra riding along with you. I have owned MANY cars thru the years & have to say that by far, this is the best sounding system I have EVER heard; figures, with 12 speakers! The features are all customizable & you can turn on / off, the things you don't need / use. The owner's manual is quite extensive, I use it as a reference, rather than read it in its entirety! Don't walk, RUN to your dealer & get one!

  • The Red Rider - 2016 Ford Fusion
    By -

    I got my 2016 Ford Fusion Titanium in April and I'm enjoying everything about it. I'm really impressed with the eco boost engine great acceleration. I have all the whistle and bells and still learning some of the sync system but a lot of fun. I love the 12 speaker surround sound radio, the heated & cooled seats. There are to many things to mention them all. I traded in my 2009 MKZ which I really liked.

  • Stunning and Powerful - 2016 Ford Fusion
    By -

    I've had this car a month and it has been an absolute dream. I traded in a 2014 Focus which turned out to be one the worst cars I have had. I was worried that this car would feel too big or too boring coming from the Focus. That has turned out to not be the case. This car is very comfortable and the quality of materials is outstanding. Soft touch areas surround the cabin and there are lots of little details that make the interior feel luxurious. The exterior is very sporty, especially with the SE Appearance Package. My car is also equipped with the SE Technology Package which I have to say is a must have. The sound system is amazing and the entertainment system is easy to use and is intuitive. The touch sensitive screen can be a bit laggy but it's nothing that bothers me too much. My car has the 1.5L EcoBoost engine. This car has a lot of power. I have noticed that the fuel economy is less than what the sticker states, which I knew about before choosing the Fusion. I am getting 22 mpg with mostly city driving, so it's not too bad. I would definitely recommend the Fusion! I have been impressed thus far and do not regret my decision.
