I do not know if it was mentioned here but new 2013 Ford Fusion still uses 6 speed transmission 6F35 at least with 2.0T. This transmission was nothing but nightmare since it was first used in 2010 - 2012 Fusion and Escape. As recently as end of 2012 none of reported problems were fixed. I am not sure if they fixed issues in 2013 but I have doubts. It may be design issue which Ford dealerships cannot fix. According the reports issues start right away in brand new cars. CR confirms it by giving 2010 Fusion solid black dot in major and minor transmission problems area.

My neighbor has a 2010 w/the 6speed auto and it was replaced at 52k. Something about a solenoid. Took three weeks for the dealer to get it fixed.
Is there a TSB or recall?

When we were shopping for a new car in 2011 we completely wrote off the Fusion due to the extensively reported transmission issues.
Ford's reluctance to correct the fault kept me away from the brand to this day.

That's a pretty inaccurate post, other than the Fusion using a 6 speed automatic transmission.

The Ford Fusion sold more than 30,000 units in March, and more than 80,000 units in the first quarter of this year, breaking both its all time monthly sales records and its all time quarterly sales records for the first time in Fusion history, putting it in 3rd place behind the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord, see the full article here:

Yeah, it's a sizzling race in the midsize market. I think the Fusion might surprise on the upside and end up in the top 3 by the end of the calendar year. Take a look at these numbers from TSX at www.vtec.net:
Altima 37,763 -8%
Camry 37,663 -8.2%
Accord 36,504 +41.4%; PHEV 26
Fusion 30,284 +6%
Malibu 18,539 -22.4%
200 16,593 +11%
Avenger 12,439 +33%
Passat 9,521 -5.1%
6 6,102 -22.3%
Legacy 4,400 -18.3%
