I had decided on trying to find a used first generation Fusion due to reading the forum and seeing that second generation has issues with the transmission, which would be expensive to fix. I'm aware of the throttle body issue with the first generation, but that seems less expensive to repair, at least (was quoted $1,000). 


Does the first generation have any other known issues other than the throttle body?


Does the second generation have any other know issues other than the transmission?


Does every car experience these known issues?


How long should I expect the hybrid battery to last? The cars I'm looking at have fairly high mileage due to my budget-120-130,000.


I was also looking at Prius second generation but ruled it out because I drive my daughter to school and it doesn't rate well for rear end collision, and the third generation has issues with oil consumption/head gasket. I'm hoping that the Fusion would be a good car to buy, and would really appreciate any help and advice!


Thanks so much in advance!
