Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 2 years ago.
Hi there ,sorry for the delayed response

I just wanted to clarify the exact setup of the vehicle (you didn't add mileage )


Ok these 1.4 petrol fusion vehicles are very reliable and suffer very little problems
the engine is a 1.6 duratec 16 valve petrol Varient
The timing belts are due at 100,000 miles or 10 years

The few concerns we have seen over the years with the fusion //fiesta Varients are

1 ,driveshaft seal it bearing issues
2,cracked from coil suspension springs (mostly down to the amount of speed bumps in this country as all makes and models suffer from this issue )
3, the odd abs issue but this was generally on the older 56/57 plate vehicles

So all in all these don't suffer any real issues and are nice reliable vehicles to drive
Also always stick to the service internals 12.5 k or 1 year )
The manual gearbox is also very reliable compared to the auto version

Kind regards XXXXX XXXXX and have a nice day

Hi there ,good evening to you

In my professional opinion these vehicles are reliable and at that mileage and year it is a good deal price
as they are cheap vehicles to maintain as very little goes wrong with them
As it's low mileage you know it hasn't been abused and has most likely done a lot short journeys
