Fusion Newbie

05-17-2009, 02:40 AM
I own Dodge and Toyota vehicles so I've been a regular on those forums for a few years. I took the plunge and decided to buy a used 07 Fusion for my daughter after reading a bunch of good press about them. Judging by my research and the lack of posts here I think I made a good decision. Time will tell. Just wanted to check in and say hi and wonder if there's anything in particular I should be keeping an eye on. Cheers!

I'll consider the lack of responses a good sign. That and the repair history info makes me think I made a good choice.

The fact Ford has managed to stay away from the government blood suckers and our money, unlike Government Motors and Fiatslyer, was a big factor in my picking a Ford. Ford appears to be the only domestic car maker with it's act together. I do fear though that eventually the new socialist government is going to be putting pressure on GM and Fiatslyer to pay back the 70+ billion bucks loaned to them and back special deals to the public that Ford won't be able to compete with. Time will tell.

The chrome peels on the interior door handles. I've seen two or three where the seat belt buckles don't like to latch quite right, and one that a speaker got damaged on. I'm a ford tech, and those are my warranty horror stories for fusions....oh, and one stupid guy didn't change his oil for 30k, but I won't hold the car responsible for that.

Back here 9 years later for two reasons (1) Have early Fusions had a history of exhaust manifold failures? Mine is cracking at the pipe welds to the flange creating a leak and exhaust noise. $1000 estimate to replace (California spec) (2) If you're still around i a n112784, I was born and raised in Michigan City. 75 Elston grad.
