The Taurus has large comfortable seats and my car has the contour motion seat option (which I thought I would never use,

16 Jun

Interior is small.

25 Jul

but at the cost of practicality: high waist/small windows, large trunk/small opening, small doors, small interior space (for such a large car).

15 Jun

The small gas tank isn't a good feature coupled with gas guzzling.

11 Dec

Only real issues I have with it is that the center co sole is on the small side and the visibility out the back window is tight

1 Sep

The back seat is a bit small

18 Apr

Small Truck opening, back seat head room (wife 5'4" complains), Front Head Rest does not match head and neck structure, Center Console size toooo wide, Blink spots every where, door moldings do not match door metal, and the list goes on.

7 Jun

However, for what it's worth, I had an inner tirod start failing at 61k miles and have had a shake in the car at 55+ since the day I bought it, dealer nonsense excluded I should have found a different one.

20 Dec

Most reliable car I have ever driven, there a few panels that need to be glued in or replaced bc of squeaks

5 Dec

Road noise is minimal, big safe car(fast too) .

2 Dec

OMLY DOWN FALL IS THAT THE COMPRESSER WENT OUT TWICE AND IT STARTS MAKE LOTS OF NOISE AFTER HAVING IT ONLY 2 YEARS.

10 Apr

After a short period of time, the "My Ford" system stopped working, a clicking noise behind the dash surfaced and the power seats began to fail.

18 Sep

They said since it is a brand new model they had very little history with it plus Ford did not have any TSB?s posted regarding the vibration.

21 Mar

The ONLY thing I don't like about it is the Slushbox of a transmission it has and the water pump design can be catastrophic if it fails.

16 Mar

Negative: Extreme high maintenance, and every electronic function has failed multiple times, rattle-trap, 5th computer/control screen, transmission issues, etc.

6 Feb

Transmission problems already and engine leaking oil.

26 Aug

The only issue I have is the transmission.

18 Sep

Meaning you can be going down the road at 65mph and shift into neutral and shut off engine and vibration does not change.

21 Mar

The ONLY thing I don't like about it is the Slushbox of a transmission it has and the water pump design can be catastrophic if it fails.

13 Oct

The equalization of the design starting from either side of the dashboard then sweeping down through the high riding console dividng you and your passenger provides that dual cockpit feel.

20 Jul

The only complaint I have about the car so far is the poor design of the front seats.

2 Jun

I hate the pipe within pipe design.

15 May

Only downside is a tight cockpit design for the driver.

The seats are to firm for me, in addition the contour fit not for me, I think it?s a move in the wrong direction.

The only small complaint is the rear visibility.

26 May

The only problem I have, which is covered by my extended warranty, is that the computer at times glitches giving me messages that the back up sensor is faulty or that I am unable to use my cruise control because the sensor on the radar is blocked.

11 Feb

It's a $1800-$2,000 job and vast majority of the time sprays coolant into the engine, causing it to fail.

3 Jan

Also for compairson, a Steller step from what I had with a 98 Ford Contour Sport.

15 Jul

but the only issues with it are a few dings in the paint and the door creaks after blowing fully open in a wind storm.

15 Jul

The only thing that could use some improvement would be road noise from rear of vehical.

20 Mar

but it feels a little underpowered and is a little bit too noisy at highway speeds.

11 Jun

the engine does not fill the cabin with the "tin" noise I feel most 4 cyl engines have.

1 Mar

I now have 1,200 miles on it, and the car has not developed any rattles or squeaks.

7 Jan

Only one repair in that time (wiper motor--under warranty).

10 Mar

My windshield sprayer stopped working, passenger side dash is popping up along with the plastic piece on the windshield vent.

13 Mar

The traction isn't as good as any other front wheel drive cars i've drove, and the windshield wipers rest below where the defrost blows on the windshield (causing them to freeze over when not in action).

21 Mar

This car replaces a 98 Contour SE Sport.

1 Jul

but they were noisy.

23 Apr

but produces some noise in the cabin.

7 Mar

With just over 45,000 trouble free, squeak and rattle free miles.

25 Mar

Don't like the turning radius or the "clicking" noise it makes when we turn sometimes (usually only occurs when we are parking the car and still doesn't do it all the time).

2 Aug

I have no squeaks or rattles.

27 Jul

No squeaks, rattles.

13 Feb

There are no squeaks or rattles and the paint is flawless.

24 Nov

Only complaint is that there is some engine noise, maybe a little more sound insulation.

21 Nov

but thought the Fords always had too much road noise but the new Fusion does not.

6 Jun

There is low wind noise and light road noise.

7 Jan

Only one repair in that time (wiper motor--under warranty).

13 Jun

I took it back and they said since it was out of warranty there was nothing they could do.

13 Feb

Dealer inspected the car and would not be a cheap fix since the extended warranty had ended.

7 Feb

airbag kit needs to be replaced, not covered by warranty, and dealer can't find the issue with the powertrain/transmission light.

1 Feb

Thankful we took out the extended warranty because it now sits at shop with expensive repairs.

14 Oct

Have had my Fusion for 3.5 years and only problem was a safety interlock system gone haywire fixed under warranty.

13 Jun

At the end of the 3 weeks I picked up my car again and drove it less than a mile when my check engine light came on.

7 Feb

airbag kit needs to be replaced, not covered by warranty, and dealer can't find the issue with the powertrain/transmission light.

1 Feb

Powertrain/transmission light came on and went off.

23 Dec

I have had to fix the ac temp control, rotors, passenger grab handle, 2 interior door handles, trunk gas shocks & the headlights need replacing because they are yellowing & seem like they are cracking.

19 Jun

The only negative I can see is that the high-mount brake light in the back window slightly obscures the view through the mirror.

2 Aug

It would help if Ford moved the third brake light to the trunk lid.

9 Jan

Only thing is I can't quite figure out what is up with the high beams.

7 Dec

I am a very short person 5"1 and even with the adjustable height seat I cannot clearly see over the rear brake light.

25 Aug

The only negative (and this was quite negative for us smaller people) was the hump on the rear back seat holding a stop light which reduced center rear visibility.This should be eliminated.

21 Aug

The safety light in the middle is too high and distracts for visibility.

7 Jan

Only one repair in that time (wiper motor--under warranty).

11 Jul

The only thing I don't really like about it is that the rear windshield is kind of small and makes it harder to see things.

15 Feb

Wipers stink.

12 Aug

I needed a dependable car because my job requires a lot of windshield time.

28 Oct

This car is not equipped as good as a lot of other cars, no outside temp, no mist on the wipers, lots of plastic inside, very cheap.

26 Sep

My biggest cons are the cheap plastic door handles and the radio display has bad soldering causing it to blank out.

25 Jun

The radio could use some better speakers.

16 Jul

When the radio is off, its just a dark space.

4 May

Radio feature on steering wheel, so you don't have to reach over and adjust the actual radio.

13 Mar

buttons on the steering wheel that work the cruise control, volume on the radio and the temperature control on the climate control.

27 Feb

The radio is a little inconvenient to operate and sometimes the

after wrecking a car i had driven for 12 years (1998 Ford Contour), I found a 2005 Ford Five Hundred that is a better fit for me and my family!

21 Oct

Only issue I've had was some rattle in the brakes/caliper

31 Jul

In January or February 2014 I had to replace the brake pads and calipers.

13 Nov

back brakes need to be replaced way to often, door handle sticks and wont close, awful noise in the front end when turning and way to much in gas.

11 Sep

Make sure the brake recall for the rear disc brakes has been completed by 30 K miles.
