In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the front air bags, these inflators may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling. While we're talking about what's going on behind the car, I like the optional backup camera, too, whose display appears in the rearview mirror. This transmission is a piece of crap. And it is a much colder system. Not only is the 2010 Ford Fusion environmentally friendly, thanks to the highly efficient 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid model, it's also safety-minded. This review covers the latest trim level, the Fusion Sport, which is equipped with a larger, 3. Send Joe an Hide full review.
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. So far the only repairs we have done has been changing oil. More important, all of us at Cars. It slipped and could not place in another gear until you turned the engine off. 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.
Can't believe the pep that this car has. There are plenty of available features, though most are condensed into packages, resulting fewer choices and higher price tags. Ok, back to the Fusion. Restarting the car resolved the problem for various periods of time. A few weeks later the problem recurred.
I was disappointed by the new Sport trim level. We have been averaging about 600+ per tank on regular unleaded. Remedy Ford will notify owners, and dealers will install new replacement mats, free of charge. Overall, the sedan look's a winner. The Sport edition retains the hydraulic steering of the previous Fusion, and some reviewers like it best.
Dealer was unable to identify or the problem. A stopping distance of 203 feet from 70 mph was bad enough, but we suffered fade almost immediately. Ford takes it a step further by letting you chose the color via a button on the console and by illuminating the cupholders. I am very happy with it so far. The blue trim, blue seat panels and blue stitching are optional, and other available colors include Sport Red and the more subtle Charcoal Black.
When it came to braking, though, the Ford was terrible. It doesn't feel like there's a V-6 under the hood, but neither is there any desire for a V-6. The regular Fusion rides very well and handles better than it needs to, but I'm not knocked out by the changes in the Sport. These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules, and used as original equipment or replacement equipment. The Fusion Sport — or at least the one I drove — isn't smooth enough, and that's pretty hard to excuse in an all-new trim level. Love it all around, don't see any reason it won't give me at least 100k miles of faithful service! Would I buy one again? Power from its large V-6 comes on strong and smooth with refinement befitting a Lincoln—no surprise since this engine is used in Lincoln products. During several extensive test drives in California, pilots from TheCarConnection.
How hard would it have been to recess these lights a bit? That power translates to a real-world driving experience that is surprisingly sporty. These repairs will be performed free of charge. Ford's number for this recall is 15S34. 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. All that stuff makes it a luxurious ride, though. I did a lot of research at the local garages and learned that there are vitually no issues with the car. This causes premature wear of the bushings where the half shafts exit the transmission, and fluid leakage results.
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. V6 models have a manual-shift mode for the transmission that is useful on hilly terrain. The others do a fine job of flashing when a vehicle is already visible in the mirror — which is to say not technically in a blind spot. No complaints with the transmission. Across the model line, Ford replaced the previous model's headlights, which climbed up the fenders, and fixed the taillights, which had been framed in chrome under plastic.
