2004 Ford Fusion TDCI 1.4 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Reliable, safe, and good to go when you are
The wipers keep tearing, as the windscreen is so large, the bugs keep hitting off the window and dragging through the glass.
Other than that, it is one of the best and economical cars I've had.
Very quick on the pick up, and nippy around town for those tight spaces.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hello all. I am thinking of buying a 2003/4 1.4 TDCi Fusion, and would like to know if anyone has had an older car such as this for at least 5 years? Is the car OK on all aspects; servicing, fuel, comfort etc? What are the problems that have arisen over the period, and was the cost high or low?
Many thanks, Peter.
2004 Ford Fusion 2 City 1.4 from UK and Ireland
A promising car that could have been better
Nice car to drive, mainly due to the driving position. More suited for females.
As the boot has no lip, shopping has a risk of falling out once the boot is opened after transit.
Fortunately the Ford Fusion 2 1.4 City I have has parking sensors, otherwise parking could be awkward due to the small rear window.
Also let down by whiney power steering and a noisy engine.
It's also quite thirsty for a 1.4 engine.
Has a basic, unattractive and plasticy dashboard. Ford could have spent a little more time on some basic design issues, and would have come up with a cracking little MPV. As it is, the Fusion is let down by a number of minor points and bland looks.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

The dash is cheap on these cars, and also the coil which is made by Bosch gives some trouble. I had to replace mine at 25000 miles and I am told that the coils will continue to give trouble. Otherwise a good car with no real problems.
