Used Car: 2009 Ford Fusion Review
The 2009 Ford Fusion’s sporty handling, spacious interior and outstanding safety and reliability scores make it a great used car.
The 2009 Ford Fusion is ranked:
The 2009 Ford Fusion is a top-ranked car within 2009 midsize cars thanks to its outstanding safety and reliability scores, high-quality interior and engaging performance. When it was new, test drivers praised the Fusion’s strong brakes, sharp handling and strong available V6 engine. The 2009 Fusion’s trunk is one of the biggest in the class, and reviewers liked how comfortable and roomy the seats were. Reviewers also liked the Fusion’s high-tech Sync infotainment system, which was optional and standard on SE and SEL trims, in that order.
Anti-lock brakes, traction control, six airbags, a tire pressure monitoring system and an auxiliary audio input are standard on the 2009 Ford Fusion, while electronic stability control, voice-activated navigation, Bluetooth connectivity and Ford’s Sync voice-controlled infotainment system were options on most trim levels. The front-wheel drive Fusion has a four-cylinder engine and an available V6. A manual transmission is standard and an automatic is available. You’ll find all-wheel drive on SE and SEL Fusion models with a V6 engine. At 20/28 mpg city/highway with an automatic transmission, the Fusion’s fuel economy is slightly less than what most rivals get.
Other Cars to Consider
Reviewers praised the 2009 Honda Accord for its powerful V6 and smooth ride. They also liked its spacious interior and high-quality fit and finish. The Accord has an exceptional safety score, though its reliability can’t match the Fusion’s.
The 2009 Toyota Camry is a good overall used car that has a roomy, high-quality interior and a good reliability rating. It’s not sporty, but its base engine provides better fuel economy than the Fusion’s.
