2015 ford fusion automatic transmission
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
1.5 or 2.0

Well since its a newer vehicle it depends on which engine but both will probably have some issues with them as they get up into higher mileage. Glow lights? As in accessory lights? Are you having problems now?

I need new headlights and I ordered xkglow lights... they come with Built in fans to keep the bulbs cool
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
My headlights are blown

Its altering the factory wiring to install them but as long as they are installed properly that shouldnt be an issue. As for the motor they are known for some issues with coolant leaks with the water pumps and phasers if its a timing chain engine in the vehicle. The transmission is also known to have some issues down the road. So your best bet would be to purchase a Ford Extended service plan. That will pay for itself if you plan on keeping the vehicle for a long time. Aftermarket plans may be cheaper but you get what you pay for in terms or refused coverage when the time is due.

If you need more help or information please let me know. if I was helpful, please use the 5 stars above to leave a positive rating.
