Ford Fusion Owners?

Recommended Posts

Hey folks, I've become the owner of a 2006 Fusion 1. It's basic but does the job, manual windows and a tape player!

Maybe I'll get some modifications done, but not to the level of @Jethro_Tull

I've got 1 too, 55 plate 1.4 petrol, used to be my dads, but had to give up his licence, & I needed a car to get to interviews 20+ miles away as my beloved Ka was off the road, then 1 of the suspension coils broke & couldn't afford to get it to a garage.

So far so good. gone through 2 MOTs without any problems, & now essential as mum is in hospital, & I'm now dad's carer, boot always in use as has a wheelchair permanently in there!! LOL

Only wish I hadn't decided to change the battery the other day!!! (but that's a story on another topic on here)

Just wondering to myself how many active Fusion owners are on FOC..

We seem to be a rare breed!

It would be great if you could leave a comment if you're a Fusion owner so we could get a rough idea 🙂

I am an owner of a 2005 (55 plate) Fusion.  Used to be my dads, until he had to give up his licence.  I did have a dead Ka, which I loved, but beggars can't be choosers so ended up with the Fusion, as it actually moved & did things cars are supposed to do !  LOL

Hi,

I've just picked up a 2005 Fusion 2 1.6 petrol as a second/winter car for when my Cooper S goes into storage.

Really impressed with it so far, drives superb.

Hello all just brought a 2007 1.4 tdi zetec climate and will start by changing the wheels , then the radio then loads of other stuff so stand by for loads of questions .First one being what is the best size of tyre/wheel to fit to the fusion?

My little 1.6 petrol Fusion has just passed its MOT with no issues. I did replace all four tyres and 2 Wheelbearings as well as a Lambda sensor before presenting it for its test though.

All in all another year on the road for a little over a couple of hundred quid is ok in my book.

We have a late 1.6 petrol, and have done 56k@42mpg in the 5 years that we have had it. On it's second set of tyres (Hankook) after the first set did over 35k, and we have had a rear wheel bearing.  Very under rated car, with a lot of space inside for its size, we call it the "Tardis".  Bought specifically to replace a '56 plate Fiesta for the wheelchair and frame for the in-laws, the seat is the right height for the elderly, and my wife can get the wheel chair in and out of the boot as there is no lip to get it over - easier than in a '08 Focus.  Stowage under the passenger seat, stowage in the dashboard, and that little pocket in the driver's seat.

I would change one thing - the handle for the boot is low down, should have been the same height as the Fiesta's, but a minor niggle

Hi all this is my first post as I just bought a fusion 1.6 titanium yesterday ink blue with only 16500 Mile's on it....mint. I bought it as a second car for taking the dogs out and using it as a work horse but I love it big and practical. Would love to have bluetooth on radio but managed to get aftermarket adapter in power socket to connect and play music through it. Only one slight niggle the drivers side door wont open sometimes when key is pressed but will with key inserted? Any ideas much appreciated Mike.

I'd be tempted to change the battery in the key before I did anything else...

Hi Paulkp, I did think that but it happens with both keys and all the other doors open ok just intermittently on the drivers door so looks like it's an acuator fault. Also I'm not sure if it's just me but the engine sounds a bit tapety and loud is this a common sound on them or should I be worried....as stated it's on a 2011 plate with 16.500 miles on it.....and midnight sky colour not ink blue as told by a Ford dealers lol.

If that is on both keys, then it looks like actuator - other possibility may be the connection from the electronics.  At 8 years old with only 16k on the clock it might just be lazy!

Is this a petrol ?  We have the 1.6 petrol in the Fiesta and the Fusion - and I think they rattle a little, but it might just need an oil change.  What sort of service history does it have -  the pollen filter in the Fiesta was celebrating it's sixth birthday when I bought the car, despite a lot of paperwork!

Ours is Vision blue, on a '60 plate, and is due belts etc next year, and now with 63k on the clock
