What Our Members Are Saying about the Reliability and Durability of the Ford Fusion

Ford Fusion Reliability and Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2011 4dr Sedan 156-horsepower 2.5L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
So far, not one problem
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
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.
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%
2009 4dr Sedan 160-horsepower 2.3L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
Past results have been favorable and I have had no issue after 2900 miles.

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.

2011 4dr Sedan 169-horsepower 2.5L I4

Bullet proof reputation and easy access to dealer if there is an issue. Have never had a problem with a Toyota vehicle.
2011 4dr Sedan 169-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
My experience with this car has been great across all categories with the exception of a few minor cosmetic repairs. A little better MPG would be nice though.
2009 4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
owned a 1997 for 325,000 kms never a problem, 10litres/100km from day 1 to day I sold it.
2009 4dr Sedan 158-horsepower 2.4L I4

Has a great reputation for reliability and durability...just keeps on going.
2009 4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
This Camry has proven very reliable with no unscheduled repair issues in the first 80,000 miles. There were three Toyota recalls but no issues were apparent due to them.
2009 4dr Sedan 187-horsepower 2.4L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
Camry has a good reliability record.
2008 4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
So far just oil changes and other regular maintenance visits to the shop at 60,000 miles. Other than the smell from airvents that was fixed with lysol.
2008 4dr Sedan 187-horsepower 2.4L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
So far so good. I have not had any problems whatsoever.
2008 4dr Sedan 187-horsepower 2.4L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
17K miles not a single issue.
2008 4dr Sedan 187-horsepower 2.4L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
Reputation for quality instills confidence. Have not had the car back in the repair shop in 10,000 miles. Do minor maintenance myself.

Know it would last , Leary of buying the VW
2011 4dr Sedan 169-horsepower 2.5L I4

No cons!
2002 4dr Sedan 157-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Cheap and weak parts. At 110,000 miles I have replaced the radiator and alternator neither of which are wear and tear parts that should be needing replacement so soon. In addition the front end of the suspension makes a clunking noise over bumps.
