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!
