Warranty

Similarly, the Volt has a 6 year corrosion warranty that beats the Fusion Energi’s 5 year warranty. One of the biggest differences between the two is the scheduled maintenance package. While Ford doesn’t offer this, Chevy includes free scheduled maintenance for 2 years and 24,000 miles; this adds up to significant savings.

Safety
