The Ford Fusion is a midsize sedan that has been available in the US since 2006. Sales of the Fusion have declined since its peak sales of over 300,000 units in 2014 and 2015. The sedan will be discontinued after the 2020 model year, however, Ford has announced that it will be replaced by the Fusion Active wagon in 2022.
The Fusion is available for its final year in 8 different trim combinations which include gas, hybrid, and plug-in electric hybrid options. There are three available engines plus the hybrid – a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder, 1.5-liter turbo-4, and a 2.0-liter turbo-4. 6-speed automatic transmission is standard with eCVT transmission in the hybrid vehicles.
The NHTSA reports numerous complaints and recalls for the Fusion. Common complaints include transmission problems, leaks, repeated activation of the “Stop Safely Now” feature, and broken door latches. Recalls have been generated by detaching steering wheels in 2018, detaching shift cables in 2019, and detaching steering gear motors in 2019. 2020 saw a recall for broken door latches that allow the door to open while in motion. Inadequately welded torque converter studs which can cause the car to stop without warning were the subject of a recall of 2017 models.
