Ford Fusion review

"Ford Fusion distinguishes itself in the most competitive vehicle segment with its standout exterior design and engaging driving dynamics. Breathing a fresh attitude into the American midsize car, Fusion brings to the segment good fuel economy, advanced safety, clean emissions and roomy interior space - all at an outstanding value."

This is from a new review on the Fusion on Topspeed. Has info about performance, design and features, and also a nice photo gallery.

Here's the whole thing: 2007 Ford Fusion- Top Speed

Re: Ford Fusion review

I was pleasantly surprised with the power of my '08 SEL with a V6. I was also impressed to discover all of the airbags my Fusion has. Honestly, I haven't found anything yet that I can find fault with.

Re: Ford Fusion review

Ford should make a hybrid version. Even with the 23 Duratec it would sell well against the Camry, Altima and Malibu. It's also the lightest of the bunch so it should net fairly good mileage with the proper transmission. I'm surprised the aftermarket isn't as big as I thought it would be with the Fusion. Perhaps its still too early to tell!

Re: Ford Fusion review

I like the idea of the Fusion hybrid. It already gets great mpg and is good for the environment. Could you imagine if they made a hybrid how much better it would be? Whew, man!

Re: Ford Fusion review

I had a Ford Fusion 2005, and I got rid of it.
This four cylinders is a piece of junk.
When you step on the gas pedal, the RPM meter jumps up pretty quick as you imagine the vehicle could run very fast. Then you realized that the vehicle didn't go any where.
I like the design of the RMP speedometer-the interior looks beautiful. But it's lack of power when you suddently step on the pedal fast in the entrance of the freeway. You may experience there is a power lost with the four cylinders engine. Therefore, there is a lot of vibration from the engine too. While you hold the steering wheel, you could feel the vibration is so annoying.
Another problem is the right side mirror. The bottom corner of the miror is blocked by the bottom of the window class that annoy people who are a little short. Under the hood, the engine design doesn't look right.
My vehicle now is a Honda Accord. With a four cylinder engine, 30MPG, quiet and fast. There is nothing this new vehicle can compare with the Fusion period.
