Hey everyone,

 

Whats the reliability of these cars? Doing alot of reading over the past few days (finally found a good forum/resource here). 

Looking at spending around ~$15k to replace my 2010 Fusion 2.5 SE which has been the most incredibly durable and rock solid vehicle I've ever owned, has 190k on it and only recently has it started to show signs of aging, mostly being poor mpg (18mpg city 21 fwy if driven conservatively, even with recent tuneup) and aging clunky/loose suspension. I'm going to hate to see this car go but wifey went from having a 5min drive to work to a 35min commute each way, plus we drive this car on the weekends to keep miles off my other car ('13 Gen Coupe), plus this type of car is just way more practical to get around in. And living in an apt complex in San Diego isnt too keen on us having a fleet of cars....

I've been finding a bunch of '16 and '17 FFH with around 40-45k on them for $15k. This is perfect, and wouldnt be the first time ive purchased a year old car with already high mileage (I bought my '10 in '11 with 66k on it already), but just a bit curious with the batteries and hybrid system if this sort of miles on it in its first year or so are a good or bad thing. I see most people say the batteries and such are good to go for the life of the car. Just seeing if anyone else was in the same or similar boat and how they felt about their purchase.

 

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

I have 140K on my '14. I've replaced two front wheel bearings and one axle. License plate bulb harness needed to be replaced too. Other than that it's been very solid.

 

My engine is now making a loud noise (I'm not sure it's the engine but it's in the engine compartment) that I've not had time to have the dealer look at yet. It started around 100K and has gotten progessively louder - it's very loud now.

 

Depending on that outcome, I'm considering replacing mine with the Lincoln MKZ hybrid equivalent - my daughter gets the Fusion next year.

I'd be very interested to know what it causing that noise.

My brother just traded a '13 FFH SE with about 100K miles for an '18 FFH Platinum.  The SE was his first Ford - ever - and he loved it.

 

My current FFH is about 35K as of today (purchase Aug '16) and no issues other than a DOA keypad that was replaced under warranty.  My prior '15 FFH had no real issues over 38.6K miles.

Me too! Will probably be another couple of weeks before I can get it to the dealer.
