In a class generally known for bland styling and a lack of driving excitement, the Fusion is a breath of fresh air with a stylish, fun to drive demeanor. That doesn't mean it's free of certain quirks that can erode one's enthusiasm. The Fusion looks upscale and stylish, and it handles like a really good European sports sedan.

"The car will randomly drain the 12 volt battery over night. I need to have it towed to the Ford dealer because the new automatic battery chargers will not charge a battery that reads 2.5 volts. The charger assumes it is a defective battery. Each time the Ford dealer charges the battery, states it goes through a check list of possible fixes and sends me on my way.

What Owners Say

Automatic climate control

"My car is a 2017 Fusion Platinum It is the most luxurious model ever built for the Fusion. Built 2017 and 2018. I'm not a car salesman or dealer, just wanted to say it is more than a run of the mill Fusion. The problem was this... The best word I have is a module. A module that makes the blower motor function had to be replaced. It wouldn't run manually or using the automatic climate control. It first had to be diagnosed on one visit. The part had to be ordered so I had to make a second visit. The module is behind the glove box. The issue fixed. I hope that explains it well enough. There is/was a 2nd issue. it has a automatic tilt telescope steering wheel. Since purchase 06/17, until 1 mo ago, when shutting down the car the steering wheel would retract backward toward the dash at the same time it was raising upward from the lowest position from your lap. When it stopped retracting backward toward the dash I took it in. Stay with me here, I related the info to the service writer. Being under warranty I didn't see what he entered on the the RO. He twisted retracting into raising. Stay with me, From new when it raised it moved up midway and stopped. I didn't know any different. Stay w/me, the tech tried every test they knew but couldn't repair it. They said they called Ford for advice. This was 1st visit, 2nd visit was for one more attempt based on what Ford advised. It didn't help. A new part was ordered for this and I returned a 3rd time for the new part install. Stay w/me... It was returned to the service lane, I went to visit w/the service writer and the shop foreman w/them saying all fixed. The shop foreman and I went to the car to see how it worked. Stay with me, I started and shut down. I gained the wheel now raising to the full upright position but it did not retract toward the dash. It can be retracted with the power button. When started it does telescope and lower at the same time as it should. The dealer can't find any info saying it should retract on shut down. Now they think I'm a fool. The foreman said he would call me. After one week he hasn't called and I don't suppose he ever will. A non automatic retracting steering wheel doesn't make the car a lemon [to cover all bases]. It just makes me defeated. Thank you if you read and understood to the end, I did my best to describe. Thank you again. I bought a new car so I wouldn't have any car trouble."
