Picking a versatile car is a wise choice, especially if you plan to keep your car for a while! The Ford Fusion is a pretty reliable car with an above-average reliability rating of 4.0 out of 5.0.
The Ford Fusion doesn’t have too many major issues, but a majority of the complaints are for:
  • Delayed or harsh shifting of the automatic transmission
  • Squeaking and creaking when turning and driving over bumps
  • Left side half shaft area has transmission oil leaks
  • Swollen lug nuts
Luckily, the Ford Fusion has a fairly average cost for its repairs and maintenance, at $581 per year.
On the other hand, since the Ford Fusion has been discontinued since 2020, you would have to get the car used if you are set on it. It can be hard to determine the reliability of a used car since it will also depend on how well the car was taken care of.
If you’re open to other mid-size sedans that are still in production, you can also look at:
