Brakes still make a clunking sound when going from forward to reverse. Have to take it back to dealership.
Overall I am very happy with the car. Power and handling are excellent and with leather seats and most of the available options it easily beats out the competition that was priced much higher. 0% financing made it a no brainer.
I bought this car for road-trips, so the wind noise is pretty disheartening. Dealership has attempted to correct it twice, but the problem persists.
My only other real issue with the car is the fuel mileage. I was initially getting about 29mpg on the highway. When I took it in for service the dealership said it needed the new PCM update and my fuel mileage dropped about 4-6 mpg. Up until that point I was thrilled with the performance and economy. Still waiting for another update that will maybe give me those mpg's back!

2006 Ford Fusion 4 cylinder from North America
Not much bang for your buck
Lumbar support has broken three times.
Radio/Time light has burned out.
Car is too light for winter travel.
Engine sounds like a moped.
Very disappointing to have the lumbar support break so frequently. I simply don't have the time to keep taking my vehicle back to the dealer to have this replaced. They have to order the part, etc. Headache. Not to mention that when it breaks, it scares you! I've had it break while driving down the busy 401. Not funny.
The radio lights have gone out. If I hit a bump, on they come! It's either a fuse or the radio light itself (which will be very expensive because they have to remove the dash). I'm over the 60,000 mark and it's not covered.
I've got $850.00 worth the tires on this car and it still doesn't respond well on our snowy roads. The car feels too light. When I drive my husband's car (2003 Ford Taurus) with its cheap Canadian Tire snow tires, I'm always delighted with its ability to handle the worst snow conditions. Solid. Drives like a tank! Love it!
Good grief! I've paid a fortune for this car and it sounds like a cheap Sunfire. Yuk...I've learned my lesson. It will be a Toyota Camry for me next time!!

Just because your tires cost $850 does not mean they will be good in the snow. Notice how you said your husbands car has snow tires, that is the difference. You put all seasons on a car and expect them to perform like snow tires. It doesn't work that way!
