Read my comment on another post. I work at a dealership and have not heard of this issue. It may be regional due to certain conditions, or that we've not seen it or heard of it, a complete anomaly to us. I'm just thankful that the engine offered as base or optional isn't the 1.5L. If I remember Monday, I'm going to check as see if any dealers in the area even stock the manifold, this could say something.

There had been some issues, similar to the 1.5L, but a lot of them I've seen have still been under warranty; and Ford has supposedly redesigned the blocks to correct the issue.
Otherwise, I've seen a number of Fusions w/ the Eco 2.0L with well over 100K.
As with any vehicle though, it all comes down to a number of factors; some which you can control, and others you can't.

I drove a company owned Ford Fusion 2.0 Ecoboost SE model. New car 2014 model - I put 77k on it before retiring and a buddy continued on the job with it until they “retired” the Ford at 112k. Lots of power, but you have to refrain from stomping on the go fast peddle as the mileage really dropped.
Of note: when the Ford was parked at the office lot overnight I saw the work of a rat or perhaps mice eating the cover on some of the wiring harness under the hood. We were told the cover had some elements of a plant based material in it - thus the critters were attracted to it. They didn’t get fried or do any real damage. I put a dryer static sheet near the harness. It worked, no more chewing.

No major engine problems - mindful of the speeding issue you will be ok. It was my second new Fusion and both were built in Hermosillo Mexico - very good build quality and it got a lot of attention as it was a sharp looking ride. ✔

Only issue I can say that I've noted is there have been several newer ones through the shop needing flywheels replaced, and this has been on AWD models. Have also see rear shock mounts needing replacement on a few too, though that hasn't been an overwhelming issue; I think it really subsided after pothole season passed.
And yes, people need to realize, boost and the resulting ear-to-ear grin it produces takes more fuel to produce. Jack rabbit starts and aggressive driving will drain the tank quickly as well.

I ordered a maverick Lariet last week. After more research I'm hearing of the dreadfull coolant leak into cylinder. Does anyone know for sure if this issue has been resolved. I don't like to buy a new vehicle just to have warranty.

DO YOU KNOW IF THE LEAKING CYLINDER HEAD GASKET ISSUE HAS BEEN RESOLVED ON THE 2.0 ECOBOOST?

Well, from what I’ve researched on this exact problem, Ford has changed the 2.0 block starting for the 2020 models. Hopefully this will correct the coolant intrusion problem with some of the twin scroll versions of the 2.0 made from 2015~2019. I currently own a 2017 Escape , 77,500km, with the twin scroll 2.0 and as of yesterday, my Ford dealer confirmed that I need a new long block, due to coolant intrusion into #2cylinder. Luckily I still have my factory PT warranty that ends next month, so Ford is eating the $9000 cost to replace it. Yeah, this is way too close to my warranty ending, way too close.

Sorry for the delay.... Been tied up quite a bit. As some have indicated, they have supposedly more recently corrected the problem. Initially when I restarted working at a Ford dealership I had only really seen 1.5L engines, but knew there had been a couple 2.0L, too. More recently, there's been a number more of them; but while the 1.5L has been consistent, the 2.0L seems to go in little spurts. BTW, it's not the gasket, it's the block. In the 1.5L, you receive a new short block; in the 2.0L you receive a new long block.

Now I'm just wondering if/when the engine in my wife's Escape will need replacement.
