The automatic transmission may develop shifting concerns. On lower mileage vehicles, upgrading the software in the powertrain control module (PCM) and the transmission control module (TCM) may correct the problem. As the mileage increases, internal transmission damage can occur. Repairs could involve replacement of the valve body or a complete transmission rebuild. Whenever major transmission repairs are made, it is important to be sure th...

If the key will not come out of ignition, this may be related to problems with the shifter knob sticking and / or binding of the shifter bezel. Replace the shifter knob and / or shifter bezel as needed.

Ford Fusion Reviews

I bought my 2007 Fusion in July 2007. It is a 4 cylinder. Other than regular wear and tear items, batteries, tires and oil changes,I have had very few problems. A $25 part in the AC system went out 3 years ago. Ford claimed this was an 8 hr labor job and wanted almost $1000 to change this $25 part. I found a guy to do it for $250. I now have 140K miles on the car.It still gets about 25 mpg. I plan to keep it as long as possible.

Own a 07 AWD Fusion- was told yesterday that I needed new drive shaft. Have 42,000 miles on it. I am original owner. Have kept well maintained. Very upset about this costly repair. I am going to get in touch with Ford Motor Co. appears from checking online that a lot of other people have had this issue.

I have been satisfied with this 6 Cyl Automatic Fusion just reach 200,000 miles. I HAVE ENJOYED AND STILL LOVE THIS CARS RIDE. i PICKED IT UP WITH 8k miles for 17.5k. During all that time I had the brake and front rotors & brakes replaced 3 times ( by family $100 each time ) and Installed a Salvage yard AC compressor at 170k miles IN 2012. Now it is Feb 2013. BUT NOW IT IS DECISION TIME .... Check engine light is on and point to Cat., due to a recent minor Oil Ring leak. Should I go with a $5300 + tx quote for a Salvaged yard engine 12k miles ( 6 month wrty ) which will include the 2 Cat converter replaced. (yes this car has 3 Cats but the 3rd one is not vital /monitored. I would by a ford fusion again just which they could get 50 mpg thanks to Obama Gas prices

I purchased my 2011 Ford Fusion SE new in March 2011 and have been happy with the purchase (it is now December 2013). I previously owned a Lexus and of course the Fusion is not as nice inside as the Lexus. I have not had any problems with the car and have had all of the maintenance performed as scheduled. The cheep interior finishes are really my only complaint. The technology is great (Sync) and I have not had any problems with it.
I am sitting at the ford dealer right now getting my 30000 mile service and I would recommend going somewhere other than the dealer for service. I have been disappointed with the prices they charge which is the whole reason I am visiting this sight.

I have a 2006 Ford Fusion and I love it. It has 102000 miles on it and has had no problems except my oil pan gasket started leaking. I was quoted $600 to have it fixed. Has anyone else had this problem and doe $600 sound high?
