My 2012 Ford Fusion Hybrid is still on its first battery, and it is the older nickel metal hydride. The newer batteries are lithium based and should have better conditioning software, so I'm not worried.
With the exception of severe mechanical problems (a couple of used cars that lasted 2-3 years, 1 new pickup that lasted 3 years), and 2 cars that were totaled by actions of others, I tend to keep cars for 6+ years. My current car was built 10 years ago this week, though I bought it new in July...
I was wondering if you could find out what seems to be keeping First Edition build to be held up.
I like the information you provide in the videos, but haven't seen anyone addressing this topic.
It would be nice if Ford would tell us, so we’d know not to get our hopes up every time scheduling rolls around. I wouldn’t cancel my order, but it is frustrating that there appears to be no communication about why this particular grouping is not being included in the scheduling.
I'm 60, am replacing a Fusion Hybrid I bought new in 2012. Need to be able to haul things from warehouse stores, etc for a food pantry I work at and the Fusion is a bit on the cramped side for that. Was looking to get a small pickup for a while now, and this one seems ideal for my purpose...
Ordered on Jun 13 (officially the 14th...13 was Sunday). Carbonized Gray First Edition. Never got a direct email from Ford, but got a copy of the order sheet (with order number) and order verification from the dealer, showing Ford received my order. Submitted my info for the list today.
