A Buyer’s Guide to the 2012 Ford Fusion Hybrid

ford fusion hybrid 2012

The 2012 Ford Fusion Hybrid is a really great choice for anyone looking for a mid-size sedan. Not only does it boast plenty of room for people and cargo, but it also has a good amount of power and great fuel economy. The Ford Fusion holds its own in a crowded class with a lot of heavy-hitting contenders (like the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord), and this hybrid model brings even more attractive elements to the table.

Key Features

First of all, the 2012 Ford Fusion Hybrid has the capability to drive 700 city miles on a single tank of gas. That feature alone is enough to convince a lot of car buyers. Its highly visible LCD gauges also make it very easy to drive, even in poor conditions.

Changes for 2012

No significant changes occurred in the hybrid model in 2012, except for 17” wheels on the SE trim version.

What We Like

Getting 41 miles per gallon in city driving is definitely something to like about this car. Its spacious, plush interior helps a great deal, too. Plus, the brakes feel much more active and effective than most other hybrids.

What Concerns Us

When you get to higher speeds, the steering can get finicky and skittish, making it imperative that you concentrate on your steering when you have other things to focus on, like which exit to take or how to avoid an aggressive driver overtaking you. The backseat also has very little lumbar support, making it a difficult ride for some of your passengers.

Available Models

The 2012 Ford Fusion Hybrid has a 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine with 156 horsepower and a two-speed continuously variably transmission (CVT). It is also rated at 41 miles per gallon.

Major Recalls

There was one investigation into owners’ complaints of loss of power steering while driving, but this did not result in a recall. In fact, there have actually been no major recalls of 2012 Ford Fusion Hybrids.

Common Issues

The most common problems that owners have had with the 2012 Ford Fusion Hybrid are electrical issues with the hybrid motor quitting and shorts in the electrical system. These can be taken care of at any Ford dealership and will likely be noticeable in any test drive.
