What Our Members Are Saying about Ford Fusion Reliability and Durability

Reliability and Durability of the Ford Fusion: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2011 4dr Sedan 156-horsepower 2.5L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
So far, not one problem
2010 4dr Sedan 175-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed automatic FWD
Well engineered and assembled. Comfortable ride and handling. No rattles, loose trim, etc. Good fit and finish.
2010 4dr Sedan 156-horsepower 2.5L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
I have had zero defects or problems in the 28+K miles on the car. The only complaint I have with the car is the sun visors are not user friendly, they have fixed detents and you can not get them to stay in the desired location without a little effort.
2010 4dr Sedan 240-horsepower 3.0L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
I had a 2006 Ford Fusion SE V6 before my 2010 and it was an excellent car, and only got the 2010 because I fell in love with the looks of it. I put 65,000km on my 06 Fusion in 2 and a half years and no problems. It was a great and very reliable car.
2010 4dr Sedan 175-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed automatic FWD
Consumer Reports says more reliable than Accord or Camry. After 9,000 miles, so far so good. We were going to buy an Accord but they have luggage mashing trunk hinges, but not the Fusion. Plus the Accords are ugly.
2010 4dr Sedan 175-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed manual FWD
History of the previous model showed above average reliability in Consumer Reports
2009 4dr Sedan 160-horsepower 2.3L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
feels solid, good reviews
2009 4dr Sedan 221-horsepower 3.0L V6
6-speed automatic FWD
Past reposting.
2009 4dr Sedan 160-horsepower 2.3L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
When comparing reliability with some other cars I considered, Nissan Altima for example, I noticed that Ford Fusion owners rate its reliability close to the owners of Honda Accord and Toyota Camry.
2009 4dr Sedan 221-horsepower 3.0L V6
6-speed automatic FWD
Built strong with attention to detail. Have heard nothing but good things from fellow Fusion owners as to weather they were happy they bought theirs or not, so I bought mine, and agree 100%
Reliability and Durability of the Ford Fusion: Cons

2010 4dr Sedan 156-horsepower 2.5L I4 Hybrid

This is a new car in hyrbid that has no track record
2006 4dr Sedan 160-horsepower 2.3L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Absoulutely aweful. Put 2 clutches and 1 engine in this car. It was used as a family vehicle, but was in the shop more than we drove it.
