Going on 18 months and 18,000 miles...no rattles or buzzes. I've had what I call 2 "build quality" issues with the FFH since I've owned it. Trunk alignment and loose trim on the outside passenger window. I've owned many new cars, including Mercedes, Lincoln and a Cadillac. I had far more build quality issues with each one of those cars and all were taken care of by the dealers....just like Ford.
Expresspotato, those of us who have been on the forms since before the 2013 Fusions started rolling of the assembly lines remember your incessant rants about the issues you had with pricing and finally getting your car. I suggest your continued displeasure with your car is tainted by your initial experience. Just get rid of the car and get something you think you will be happy with. It's just not worth your aggravation.
Been there done that, got my head handed to me too, and grateful for it.
EP, you are barking up the wrong tree here, your rants are going to push those of us who would be willing to help away, and you will most likely wind up on members blocked lists, so when you really could use our help on something, no one will answer because you were blocked. It is understandable that your particular car has issues, we get that, we know for a fact that there are a handful of Fusions that were built like crap, and some that are poor performers. We also know Ford will do nothing for those owners with under performing cars since YMMV, but in your case, you have build issues, Ford Will take care of it for you, Ashley here will assist as she can, and if your dealer is doing a poor job, take it somewhere else, get in touch with CSM and have them get you a loaner you dont have to pay for, until your car is repaired to your satisfaction. Insist on an extended warranty too since you do have so many issues that are documented as an issue.
When someone has a car like mine was, it got poor gas mileage, but proving it isn't the driver and is the car is extremely hard to do, you have two choices, live with it, or get rid of it, in my case, my dealer backed me up and did me good on the trade value, In your case where you have parts failing, physical proof of issues, it is much easier to hit up CSM to get things done. The ball is in your court, now its up to you to make Ford work for it.
