Poor gas milage! by An MSN Autos Consumer on 04/12/2011. Trim: 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid Sedan, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Very comfortable, nice looking. Peppy when using the gas motor
Cons: It's very hard to get it to stay running on the battery power with out being a turtle! (and I'm not a lead foot) Any small hill kicks you out of battery power or you lose speed, so you can't stay on battery power up to 47 mph. Ford service is good for some things, but apparently they not knowledgable about their power train.
Overall review: After 4,000 miles in 6 months, my mpg dropped from about 40 mpg to 28 mpg with the same driving habits. The mpg needle would fluctuate up and down constantly while on the straight and level! Took it into Ford and they said there was nothing they could do because there were no trouble codes. So much for old fashioned trouble shooting. Typical of Ford. They told me to use better gas, although I was using the same gas as always. The manual says not to use fuel additives, but I put in some Techron fuel injector cleaner and after half a tank my mileage improved. Now a month later, I am averaging 34 mpg. Still nowwhere close to the 37 to 40+ they advertise. I am very disapointed with Ford, I think I will trade it in on a Leaf because of Fords lack of knowledge! I would not buy again!

Excellent, Reliable, Well Made Car by RevellR on 05/22/2013. Trim: 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid Sedan, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: What is not to love about this car! I have about 75,000mi and average 37-45mpg everyday. It took a week or two after buying it to teach myself how to drive it. Stereo & SYNC are very good. Satellite radio is terrific! Plenty of room for 4 adults. The trunk is a little tight, but I get 2 weeks worth of groceries in it. It is as quiet as my Lexus LS 430. As far as maintenance, there really isn't much. I'm a little neurotic about changing oil & have my settings at 5,000mi w/ 20W-5. My car came w/ very dark tinting, which I love! One feature that Ford should never gets rid of is the number pad on the driver's door.
Cons: One main gripe is that I think the seats seem to be a little on the stiff side. I have sciatica which is aggravated after an hour in the car. And another issue with the seats is that I really miss heated seating. Final negative, the crappiest floor mats come with the car. Easy fix though.
Overall review: If your on the fence, I promise you won't be disappointed. This is a fantastic car!

Best Car I've Owned - Will definitely upgrade in a by Jake - Des Moines, IA on 01/03/2013. Trim: 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid Sedan, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Gas mileage. My car's "lifetime MPG average" goes to a high of 47MPG during the summer, but dips down to a low of 36MPG during the harsher Iowa winter, so a yearly average of about 41.5MPG. Absolutely amazing compared to my last car. The car looks, feels and sounds great. Mine is black exterior with black interior. I have the 502A package so I love the touch screen and sound system. Also, the stitching on the black leather seats is gorgeous.
Cons: Winter MPG, can't blame the car though as all cars do a lot worse. CVT transmission can be a bit boring, but very economical, which is what I'm aiming for anyway.
Overall review: My Ford Fusion hybrid just crossed 100,000 miles with only a single tiny issue, one of my rear sensors had a severed connection that cost only $100 to fix, not bad for 2.5 years and 100k miles. The build quality on these is excellent, very quiet ride that has not deteriorated over the years. I'm about to go in for my FIRST brake pad change, which is just amazing. I change oil every 10k miles and have replaced all four tires at 68k miles. This is the best car I ever owned. Honestly, with some shaky issues on the 2013 model, I'll probably actually just hold onto this one for 3 or 4 more years as it runs perfectly. Maybe I'll wait another generation for the next redesign in '16 or '17.

The Best Automobile I Have Ever Owned! by Fusion Hybrid Fan_Plattsburgh on 11/11/2012. Trim: 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid Sedan, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Great looking car inside and out, the gas mileage is outstanding. I really enjoy pushing the around town mileage to over 50 MPG! I have no trouble getting 40 MPG on the highway. This car has the power of a V6, so don't be fooled that it is a hybrid.
Overall review: I have owned my 2010 Fusion Hybrid for 3 years. I have 78,00 miles on it now and I can honestly say that the American public needs to start taking a look at Quality American made automobiles, like the Ford Fusion Hybrid. As long as Ford continues to build these EXCELLENT cars, I will never buy another Japanese or foreign made car. This car is above and beyond what I expected from a hybrid sedan. I am currently averaging 42 MPG OVERALL. The overall gas mileage is important to emphasize, because so many companies report their highway mileage, but they don't mention the combined mileage. The two are very different. My next car will be a plug-in version of the Fusion Hybrid. I will have to wait a few more years until I get to 200,000 miles on my 2010 Fusion Hybrid.
