Summary

My front right turn signal suddenly stopped working. It lights up but won't flash. Due to this problem I have had numerous near crashes because other cars cannot tell that I am signaling to turn or change lanes. It was only because I double check where surrounding cars are that I have been able to avoid a crash. I have taken it to the dealers service center but they were not able to fix it in the three and a half days they had it. I finally had to go get it because I needed a vehicle to go to work and could not wait any longer. There were no signs that there was a problem until I noticed it wasn't flashing. The inside display and sound of the turn signal are all normal and I am unsure of when the problem first happened because the inside display has no abnormalities.

Summary

Faulty evap temperature sensor on my 06 Ford Fusion I purchased a couple of months ago. It is a huge safety issue, the vehicle thinks it’s running ICE COLD when it’s over 100 degrees outside. It emits hot or fluctuating air at random and it’s giving wrong readings which can cause the car to overheat or not sense when it is overheating. I do not know if the needle is correct and if it’s about to smoke or not.

Summary

I've been hearing air in my brakes for two days and my brakes were not working as good as before. I haven't lost any brake fluid. As I was driving down the road and while braking to stop my brake pedal hit the bottom of my foot really hard and brakes went completely out and all I could hear was air and the brakes became almost impossible to press at all anymore.

Summary

Safety Recall Notice 19S54/NHTSA Recall 19V-904 Received recall notice April 2021 that the parts HCU (hydraulic control unit) for the antilock brake system is faulty. Brought to the dealer on April 21, 2021, Sayville Ford, Sayville NY and they told me to pick up the vehicle, had the same soft pedal. Drove it home and 2 weeks later hit an uneven surface and pedal went to the floor, had to pump numerous times to stop, almost hit a parked car. This had happened 2 times before I received the recall notice and both times ended up in the intersection. Brought it back to Sayville Ford they had it for 2 weeks and called me to tell me that Ford Motors Denied the claim and will not fix the problem. I bought this vehicle new in 2006 for my wife and I will not let her drive it. It is very dangerous to be driven on the road at this point. The vehicle has only 32,000 miles I spoke to Ford Motor Corp and they will not honor this Recall 19S54. Please help, I do not know where to go from here.

Summary

The headlights are so foggy that night driving is dangerous. I applied a liquid to the exterior of both lights and that improved visibility for about a year. I believe this is caused by a reaction to the plastic used on the lenses. The vehicle is available for inspection however I have not taken it to a dealership for this problem. I have noticed this headlight problem on other vehicles.

Summary

THERE'S A BLATANT TRANSMISSION SAFETY CONCERN FOR ALL 2006 FORD FUSIONS. ACCORDING TO MULTIPLE WEBSITES WITH FORUMS, HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING TRANSMISSION CONCERNS. THE ISSUE IS WHEN ACCELERATING, THE CAR SLIPS OUT OF GEAR AND VIOLENTLY LURCHES FORWARD AND NO LONGER ACCELERATES, CREATING AN EXTREME SAFETY HAZARD ESPECIALLY ON THE HIGHWAY. THE ONLY WAY, AT LEAST FOR ME, TO GET IT BACK INTO GEAR IS TO COMPLETELY STOP ACCELERATING FOR A FEW SECONDS AND THEN TRY ACCELERATING AGAIN. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY A SAFETY HAZARD ON THE HIGHWAY AND STREET DRIVING. NO MECHANICS OR FORD MECHANICS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO FIX THIS ISSUE, ONLY RECOMMEND THAT THE TRANSMISSION BE REPLACED, WHICH IS NOT AN IDEAL REPAIR, ESPECIALLY WHEN THIS IS HAPPENING AS SOON AS 50,000 MILES HAVE BEEN PUT ON THE CAR. I'M SCARED TO DRIVE MY CAR, ESPECIALLY ON THE HIGHWAY BECAUSE MY ACCELERATION IS LIMITED AND THIS COULD HAPPEN AT ANY TIME. THIS HAS BEEN HAPPENING TO MY CAR SINCE IT HIT 50,000 AND THERE'S NO WAY I CAN AFFORD A NEW TRANSMISSION, NOR SHOULD I HAVE TO REPLACE IT SINCE THIS HAS HAPPENED IN MULTIPLE 2006 FORD FUSIONS. THIS ISSUE HAS ALSO HAPPENED TO MY DRIVING AROUND TOWN. THERE ARE MANY REPORTS ON HTTPS://REPAIRPAL.COM/TRANSMISSION-PROBLEM-242 AND SOME ON HTTPS://WWW.CARCOMPLAINTS.COM/FORD/FUSION/2006/TRANSMISSION/TRANSMISSION_FAILURE.SHTML AND HTTPS://FORDPROBLEM.COM/2006-FORD-FUSION-POWER-TRAIN-AUTOMATIC-TRANSMISSION-PROBLEMS-DEFECTS/AMP/

Summary

FUSION HAS ISSUES ACCELERATING WHILE IN MOTION. THE ISSUE HAS HAPPENED ON THE HIGHWAY AND CITY STREETS. WHEN THE GAS PEDAL IS PUSHED, THE CAR WILL NOT ACCELERATE AND THE RPM WILL JUMP. THIS CAUSES SAFETY CONCERNS BECAUSE WHILE DRIVING, CAR WILL SUDDENLY NOT ACCELERATE IN TRAFFIC AND I HAVE TO PULL TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WHILE THE TRAFFIC AROUND IS GOING AT A HIGHER SPEED AND HAS POTENTIAL TO CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. THE CAR APPEARS TO HAVE TROUBLE SWITCHING BETWEEN GEARS AND CAR JERKS IN THE SHIFT.

I HAVE ALREADY CONTACTED NHTSA, REFERENCE # 11119887, I EXPLAINED THAT THE VEHICLE WAS SOLD TO ME ON JANUARY 21, 2017 BY AL PIEMONTE FORD DEALERSHIP IN ILLINOIS. I HAD NO KNOWLEDGE THAT THE VEHICLE ALREADY HAD AN AIRBAG RECALL ON IT AND THEY SOLD IT TO ME WITHOUT DISCLOSING THIS INFORMATION. THEY LATER SENT ME MY FIRST RECALL NOTICE IN THE MAIL 16S26 / NHTSA RECALL 16V-384 WE WERE INVOLVED IN A CAR ACCIDENT AND THE AIRBAGS DID NOT DEPLOY. WHEN I WENT TO MY LOCAL FORD DEALER, WHERE I WAS TOLD TO GO, THE FORD DEALERSHIP INFORMED US THAT THE RECALL WAS ONLY FOR THE PASSENGER SIDE NOT FOR THE DRIVER SIDE AIRBAG. I SHOWED THEM PROOF OF OUR ACCIDENT INCLUDING PICTURES FROM THE INSURANCE SHOWING THE FORD DEALER THAT NEITHER OF THE AIRBAGS DEPLOYED DURING THE ACCIDENT. WE PROVIDED PROOF AND PAPERWORK TO THE FORD DEALER. THEY ONLY REPLACED ONE AIRBAG FOR FREE AND FORCED US TO PAY $536.41 OUT OF POCKET. THIS IS OUR ONLY VEHICLE AND WE HAVE A SMALL CHILD. THEY TOLD US THE FACT THAT THE DRIVER SIDE DID NOT DEPLOY DURING THE CAR ACCIDENT IS NOT THERE PROBLEM AND THERE IS NOTHING THAT THEY COULD DO; SO WE HAD NO OTHER CHOICE, WE WE'RE FORCED TO HAVE BOTH AIRBAGS REPLACED. I HAVE AN OFFICIAL COMPLAINT PUT IN WITH FORD COMPANY, COMPLAINT # [XXX] I SENT THIS COMPLAINT TO THEIR CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIP CENTER IN MICHIGAN. I ALSO SENT THIS COMPLAINT TO THE AL PIEMONTE FORD IN MELROSE PARK, IL WHERE THE VEHICLE WAS ORIGINALLY PURCHASED. I ALSO PUT IN A COMPLAINT WITH THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION, OFFICE OF DEFECT INVESTIGATION COMPLAINT #100426513 I HAVE NOT HEARD BACK FROM ANYONE! NO RESPONSE BACK FROM FORD, NO RESPONSE BACK FROM THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION AND NO RESPONSE BACK FROM NHTSA. DO YOU HAVE AN UPDATE OR ANY STATUS ON MY COMPLAINT? PLEASE ADVISE. THANK YOU, [XXX] INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6). *CC *TR

I HAD CALLED TWO DEALERSHIPS, PASCO WASHINGTON AND WOODBURN OREGON. WE'VE RECENTLY MOVED TO WOODBURN. NO HELP. BASICALLY I FEEL LIKE I'M STUCK WITH A CAR THAT I CAN'T SELL.

I JUST WISH THEY COULD GIVE A DATE THEY CAN ACTUALLY COMPETE THE REPAIR SO WE CAN PLAN. IF I'D KNOWN THIS LAST MAY, I WOULD HAVE JUST DROPPED THE INSURANCE AND PARKED MY CAR.

NO ONE AT THE REPAIR FACILITY OR AT THE FORD CUSTOMER SERVICE CENTER IS ABLE TO GIVE ME ANY ANSWERS AS TO WHEN THE PART WILL BE AVAILABLE. OF COURSE THEY HAVE NO USA BASED C/S. THE LAST LETTER I RECEIVED STATED THAT PARTS SHOULD BE AVAILABLE IN THE SECOND OR THIRD QUARTER OF 2018. IT IS NOW THE END OF THE FOURTH QUARTER AND I HAD HEARD NOTHING. THE REALITY IS THAT I WILL LIKELY NEVER GET A REPLACEMENT, AND I HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO DEAL WITH A NEVER ENDING RUN-AROUND. IN THEIR CURRENT CLASS ACTION SUIT THEY ARE DENYING US A RIGHT TO SUE (SHOULD WE BE INJURED) BY NOT PROVIDING THE INFORMATION IN A TIMELY MANNER (BECAUSE THEY REQUIRE A WRITTEN OPT-OUT POSTMARKED BY A SPECIFIC DATE), YET THEY HAVE BEEN STRINGING US ALONG FOR YEARS BUT GIVE US A COUPLE OF WEEKS TO OPT OUT IN WRING.

Summary

TAKATA RECALL I GOT MY FIRST RECALL NOTICE BACK IN EARLY 2016 WHEN I LIVED IN MORGANTOWN, WEST VIRGINIA. I WAS TOLD I WILL BE CONTACTED WHEN THE PART IS AVAILABLE. I AM LIVING IN JACKSON, TENESSEE. I RECEIVED A NOTICE SAYING THE PART IS STILL NOT AVAILABLE, AND THAT IS TWO AND HALF YEARS LATER. A LOT OF INCONVENIENCE HAS CAUSED. I TRIED TO DRIVE THE CAR WITHOUT A PASSENGER ON THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT. SEVERAL TIMES, WHEN MY OTHER CAR BROKE DOWN, I HAD TO DRIVE MY FUSION WITH MY WIFE ON THE PASSENGER SEAT. THIS IS A CONSTANT TIMING BOMB IF ACCIDENT HAPPENS AND THE AIR BAG INFLATES. I HOPE FORD WILL FIX MY AIRBAG WITHIN 1 MONTH, WHICH IS A REASONABLE TIME AFTER WAITING FOR TWO AND HALF YEARS.

TAKATA RECALL - I HAVE RECEIVED SEVERAL LETTERS FROM FORD OVER THE YEARS IN REGARDS TO THIS TAKATA RECALL INVOLVING THE PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAG INFLATOR. HOWEVER THEIR LETTERS ALWAYS END WITH A STATEMENT ABOUT HOW THE PARTS ARE NOT AVAILABLE AND WHEN THEY BECOME AVAILABLE THEY WILL CONTACT ME. I TOOK THE CAR TO A NEARBY DEALER AND THEY TOLD ME THE SAME THING, THAT PARTS ARE NOT AVAILABLE AND THEY WILL CONTACT ME WHEN THEY ARE. SO REALLY, I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR PARTS FOR SEVERAL YEARS. A LETTER I RECEIVED FROM FORD IN DECEMBER 2017 SUGGESTED THAT I NOT ALLOW ANYONE TO RIDE IN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT UNTIL THE REPAIR WAS MADE! SO I FEEL LIKE I AM RIDING AROUND IN A TIMEBOMB. I HAD ALSO RECEIVED A LETTER FROM TAKATA THEMSELVES SEVERAL YEARS AGO, STATING THAT MY CAR WAS ALSO UNDER A RECALL FOR THE DRIVER SIDE AIRBAG INFLATOR AS WELL. HOWEVER I DO NOT HAVE THAT LETTER ANY LONGER - I THINK IT WAS LEFT AT A DEALER WHEN I ATTEMPTED AGAIN TO GET THE REPAIRS MADE. I AM SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING TRYING TO GET A NEW CAR, BUT THAT WILL BE DIFFICULT FOR ME SINCE I AM ON DISABILITY WITH LIMITED INCOME. I WAS GIVEN A NUMBER IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS RECALL: SAFETY NOTICE 16S26 / NHTSA RECALL 16V-384. I WAS ALSO GIVEN A CASE# AT THE DEALERSHIP WHERE I LAST TOOK THE CAR TO ATTEMP REPAIRS: CASE# CAS-15045865. SINCE I AM STILL WAITING FOR PARTS, I AM GOING TO PUT THE DATE OF THE OLDEST LETTER THAT I HAVE IN THE BOX BELOW THAT SAYS "WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN".

"TAKATA RECALL" I RECEIVED MY RECALL NOTICE IN JULY 2016 AND STILL FORD MOTOR COMPANY HAS NO PARTS TO FIX IT. IF EVERYONE IS SO CONCERNED ABOUT SAFETY I THINK OVER 2 YEARS IS WAY OVER THE LIMIT TO FIX THE PROBLEM THAT COULD CAUSE DEATH. BY THE TIME FORD DOES SOMETHING MY CAR WILL NO LONGER BE AROUND AND MY FAMILY IN THE MEANTIME IS AT RISK. I ALSO THINK THIS IS FORDS INTENTION THAT IF THEY WAIT LONG ENOUGH A LARGE PORTION OF THE CARS THAT HAVE TO FIX WILL NO LONGER BE AROUND AND THEY WILL SAVE THEMSELF A LOT OF MONEY BY NOT HAVING TO FIX THOSE CARS. SOMEBODY SHOULD LOOK INTO THIS. OVER 2 YEARS OR LONGER IS FAR TO LONG TO CORRECT A SAFETY ISSUE RECALL.

THE EXTERIOR PAINT CHIPS OF IN 2" DIAMETER. ALSO WHEN I TOOK CAR FOR THE AIRBAG RECALL ON 9/15/2018, IT DROVE GOOD TO COCCIA FORD. IT DROVE OK BACK TO HOUSE AFTER INSTALLATION OF NEW AIRBAGS. A FEW HOURS LATER AFTER WE HAD PARKED THE CAR, WE GOT CALL TO GO AND PICK UP MY HUBBY'S MEDICINE FROM WALGREEN, SO WE DID. WHEN RICK GOT BACK TO CAR, I TRIED TO START IT UP. IT BUCKED, MADE NOISE AND I FELT LIKE I WAS RIDING A MECHANICAL BULL. I HAD PULLED OUT ABOUT 3 FEET, SO I HAD TO PULL BACK UP. I CALLED MY BEST FRIEND'S BOYFRIEND WHO CAME AND SAID HE THOUGHT THE CAR DID THIS BECAUSE TIMING CHAIN BROKE AND POSSIBLY DID ENGINE DAMAGE FROM SITTING FOR 2 1/2 MONTHS WHILE WE DROVE A RENTAL FOR SAME 2 1/2 MONTHS. BOTH MY HUSBAND AND I ARE DISABLED...HE IS IN PROCESS OF SEEING A NEUROSURGEON DR. DELUNA ABOUT HIS SPINAL CORD STIMULATOR AND BATTERY PACK POSSIBLE REMOVAL DUE TO PAIN. WE CHANGED THE OIL IN THE CAR RABOUT 2 WEEKS BEFORE WE HAD TO PARK IT, WE HAD FIXED THE RIGHT HEADLIGHT AT SAME TIME AND THE CAR WAS INSPECTED AT SAME TIME. CAR WAS IN GREAT SHAPE WHEN WE PARKED IT FOR THE 2 1/2 MONTHS, AND NOW I HAVE NO CAR FOR HIS APPTS. WE ARE TRYING TO GET IT FIXED BUT I AM NOT SURE.HOW. IT REALLY WIPED US OUT WORRYING ABOUT HOW WE ARE GONNA GET THROUGH THIS. ON TOP OF THAT THE PAINT CHIPS OFF IN CHUNKS AND BOTH FRONT DOOR HANDLES ARE BROKEN. THIS IS THE CRAPPIEST CAR I HAVE EVER HAD. NOT TO MENTION THAT THE MOTOR MOUNTS MIGHT ALSO HAVE CAUSED THE PROBLEM. THEY ARE TERRIBLE AND IN TERRIBLE SHAPE NOW. I FEEL LIKE THIS CAR IS NOTHING BUT A DEATH TRAP. IF WHEN I WAS LOOKING FOR A CAR I HAD KNOW WHAT ALL WAS WRONG WITH THE 2006 FORD FUSION AND THE AIR BAGS RECALL, I WOULD NEVER HAVE BOUGHT THIS CAR.

2006 FORD FUSION: WHEN DRIVING AFTER THE CAR GETS WARM UP IT IS STARTS SLIPPING AND SHIFTING SOMEONE HARSHLY LIKE IT JUST GOT KICKED. I WAS ON THE FREEWAY AND COULDN'T SPEED UP ALMOST GOT REAR ENDED. I SEE OTHERS HAVE THE SAME ISSUE AFTER DOING A SEARCH I FOUND DIFFERENT ANSWER AS WHAT COULD BE WRONG. FOUND OUT WHAT THE ISSUE IS WITH THE AISIN TRANSMISSIONS SLIPPING WHICH WERE USED IN THE 2006 FUSION. IT IS DUE TO VALVE BORE WEAR IN THE MAIN CONTROL. IF THE TRANS FLUID ISNT BURNT (MEANING THERE IS INTERNAL TRANS CLUTCH DAMAGE) THEN YOU ARE LOOKING AT $800-$1000 TO REPLACE THE MAIN CONTROL. IF THE CLUTCHES ARE BURNT THE WHOLE TRANS WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED COST??? SOMETHING LIKE $4000-$5000. THE PROBLEM IS THAT WHEN FORD BOUGHT THE AISIN TRANS, FORD DID NOT BUY THE SERVICE RIGHTS. SO THERE ARE NO SERVICE PARTS AVAILABLE OR TRAINING AVAIL ON HOW TO SERVICE THIS TRANS. THE ISSUE WITH THE MAIN CONTROL HAS BEEN SO COMMON THAT AISIN HAS AGREED TO SUPPLY FORD WITH SERVICE MAIN CONTROLS.THERE HAS BEEN A TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN OUT THERE. SEE BELOW TSB BULLETIN DATE: FEB 2007 VARIOUS DRIVEABILITY/TRANSMISSION SYMPTOMS - PCM/TCM CALIBRATION UPDATES 3.0L - AISIN F21 AUTO TRANS. ( NHTSA ITEM NUMBER - 10021277 ) AS ONE PERSON POSTED. FORD NEEDS TO MAKE THIS RIGHT!!! VERY UNSAFE*** OUR CAR IS PARKED IN THE GARAGE WE CAN NOT AFFORD TO FIX IT OR SELL IT WITH A BAD TRANSMISSION .AMMCO SAID NEEDS NEW TRANSMISSION.

Summary

OUR 2006 FUSION SEL'S TRANSMISSION HAS BEEN SLIPPING OUT OF GEAR SINCE AROUND 44K MILES. WHILE IN FORWARD MOTION, REGARDLESS OF THE CURRENT SPEED OR RPMS THE TRANSMISSION SLIPS OUT OF GEAR AND THE FOLLOWING MAY HAPPEN, SOMETIMES ALL IN THE SAME OCCURRENCE: (1) A SUDDEN TRANSMISSION SURGE THEN A JERK RESULTING IN HIGH REVVING RPMS WITH NO FORWARD POWER. THE GAS PEDAL ONLY REVS THE ENGINE WITH NO FORWARD ACCELERATION (2) A SUDDEN GRAB/SLAM OUT OF AND BACK INTO GEAR JOLTING ANYONE IN THE CAR SIGNIFICANTLY (3) GEAR SLIPPAGE RESULTING IN HIGH REVVING RPM INTO THE RED ZONE, NO FORWARD ACCELERATION, AND NO RETURN TO PREVIOUS OR ANY OTHER GEAR (4) BUCKING SURGES OF ACCELERATION AND DECELERATION MAKING THE CAR IMPOSSIBLE TO CONTROL AND DRIVE SAFELY. WHILE ADVANCING FROM A COMPLETE STOP SUCH AS A STOP SIGN OR TRAFFIC SIGNAL (1) TRANSMISSION MAY NOT COME OUT OF HIGH GEAR AND CAR WILL MOVE ONLY SLOWLY UNTIL STOPPED AND RESTARTED (2) TRANSMISSION STAYS IN HIGH GEAR AND THE CAR MOVES SLOWLY ONLY TO UNCONTROLLABLY JOLT FORWARD WHILE SLAMMING INTO A LOWER GEAR. ALL OF THE ABOVE MAY OR MAY NOT BE SOLVED BY STOPPING AND RESTARTING THE CAR. THE ABOVE ISSUES HAPPEN REGARDLESS OF THE TYPE OF ROADWAY, SPEED TRAVELING, AND WHETHER THE CAR IS TRAVELING IN A STRAIGHT PATH OR TURNING. WE WERE TOLD BY A FORD DEALERSHIP THAT IT WAS A KNOWN ISSUE THAT PRESENTS ITSELF AROUND 40K MILES AND USUALLY AFTER THE WARRANTY HAD EXPIRED. ESTIMATES TO REPAIR RANGED FROM $2,500 TO $4,500. IN ADDITION TO THE REPAIR COSTS, THERE IS THE MUCH HIGHER POTENTIAL COSTS OF LOST LIVES DUE TO THE LACK OF CONTROL THIS ISSUE PUTS THE DRIVER IN. WHEN A DRIVER IMMEDIATELY HAS NO CONTROL OF FORWARD MOMENTUM AND SUDDENLY HAS NO WAY TO DIRECT THE VEHICLE TO A SAFE LOCATION AT CURRENT TRAFFIC SPEEDS, THERE IS A SUDDEN POTENTIAL FOR LOSS OF LIVES FOR THE OCCUPANTS OF THE CAR AND POTENTIALLY THE VEHICLES FOLLOWING BEHIND.

YESTERDAY I GOT A SAFETY RECALL THAT SAID "REMEDY PARTS" WOULD BE AVAILABLE IN SPRING 2018 AND UNTIL THEN I SHOULD NOT USE THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT. NOW THE CAR IS LESS USABLE FOR MY FAMILY AND IT CANNOT BE SOLD. I EXPECT A BETTER REMEDY THAN "DON'T USE OUR PRODUCT" UNTIL WE CAN REPAIR IT. I SUGGEST THAT EVERY OWNER AFFECTED SHOULD BE GIVEN A LOANER CAR UNTIL THEIR CAR IS REPAIRED AND SAFE TO USE. TOO MANY YEARS HAVE GONE BY. FORD IS JUST STONEWALLING THE PROBLEM AND SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE TODAY.

TAKATA RECALL; I RECEIVED THE RECALL NOTICE DATED JULY 2016, IMMEDIATELY NOTIFIED ACADEMY FORD AND WAS TOLD THAT THE PARTS ARE NOT IN AND I WOULD RECEIVE A NOTICE/LETTER WHEN THE PARTS ARE AVAILABLE. I'D CHECK WITH THEM EVERY COUPLE MONTHS WITH THE LATEST BEING 10/17/17, AND STILL NO LUCK TO CORRECT THIS PROBLEM. I WAS GIVEN AN 800 NUMBER TO CALL "HEADQUARTERS", BUT THE GENTLEMAN ONLY SAID THAT THERE WAS MILLIONS OF CARS OUT THERE THAT NEED TAKEN CARE OF....I ASKED WHAT WAS I SUPPOSED TO DO ABOUT THIS AND HE TOLD ME TO "DRIVE CAREFULLY". TODAY, 10/31/17, I GET THIS CARD IN THE MAIL STATING THAT TK HOLDINGS ARE FILING CHAPTER 11. DOES THIS MEAN THEY WILL NOT BE FIXING MY CAR'S PROBLEM? THIS HAS GONE ON FOR OVER A YEAR AND IT MAKES NO SENSE WHY THIS AIRBAG ISSUE ISN'T FIXED BY NOW. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE ASSIST ME WITH THIS MATTER. I WILL BE CONTACTING SEVERAL DIFFERENT DEALERSHIPS TO SEE IF I GET ANY HELP. I DON'T EVEN ALLOW ANYONE TO RIDE IN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT DUE TO THIS PROBLEM.

Summary

WHILE DRIVING THE CAR ON THE HIGHWAY AT TYPICAL HIGHWAY SPEEDS (60MPH-70MPH) THE WRENCH INDICATOR LIGHT COMES ON IN THE DASHBOARD AND THE CAR LOOSES THE ABILITY TO ACCELERATE ANY FASTER THAN ABOUT 10 MILES AN HOUR. WE PULL OVER, TURN THE CAR OFF AND START IT BACK UP AGAIN AND IT APPEARS TO RUN FINE. THIS CAN HAPPEN RANDOMLY ONE DAY AND THEN NOT HAPPEN AGAIN FOR A FEW WEEKS OR EVEN A MONTH OR TWO THEN IT DOES IT AGAIN. BASED ON MY RESEARCH COMPARING OTHER DRIVERS POSTING ABOUT THE SAME PROBLEM I BELIEVE THIS PROBLEM IS DUE TO A DEFECTIVE THROTTLE BODY OR WHAT IS SOMETIMES CALLED THE ETB = ELECTRONIC THROTTLE BODY. THE PROBLEM IS THE RESULT OF THE COMPUTER AND SENSORS SENDING BAD SIGNALS TO THE THROTTLE BODY MECHANISM WHICH THEN AFFECTS THE AIR/GAS MIXTURE AND ADVERSELY AFFECTS ACCELERATION, THIS IS DANGEROUS AND A SAFETY ISSUE. THERE WAS A RECALL ON DEFECTIVE THROTTLE BODIES FOR FORD FUSIONS BUT IT ONLY INCLUDED 2009 MODELS AND LATER MODELS, BUT IT DID NOT INCLUDE 2006 MODELS. I HAVE READ OF OTHER PEOPLE IN EARLIER MODEL CARS FROM AS EARLY AS 2005 POSTING ON FORUMS THAT THEY HAD THE SAME ISSUE, SO I BELIEVE THIS WASN'T ONLY A PROBLEM ON 2009'S AND LATER. FORD ISSUES AN EXTENDED WARRANTY ON THE FUSION OF TEN YEARS OR 150,000 MILES. I DON'T KNOW THE NAME OF THE SPECIFIC RECALL OTHER THAN A REFERENCE TO CONSUMER SATISFACTION PROGRAM 13N03. THE PROBLEM SOMETIMES IS REFERRED AS THE "LIMP HOME" MODE. IN CONCLUSION, I WOULD LIKE OUR 2006 FORD FUSION TO BE INCLUDED OR QUALIFIED IN THE RECALL SO I CAN FIX THIS PROBLEM OR AT LEAST GET REIMBURSED ONCE I GET IT FIXED SINCE IT IS A DEFECT WITH THE CAR.

TAKATA RECALL (16V-384). I RECEIVED A LETTER ONE YEAR AGO (JUL 2016) REGARDING THIS RECALL. I AM STILL OPERATING THIS CAR ON A DAILY BASIS. THIS MODEL DOES NOT HAVE AN OFF SWITCH FOR THE PASSENGER SIDE FRONT AIR BAG SO I CANNOT HAVE A FRONT PASSENGER RIDE SAFELY WITH ME IN THIS CAR AS IT STANDS NOW. CAN YOU AT LEAST HAVE A FORD MECHANIC INSTALL AN OFF SWITCH FOR THIS DANGEROUS AIR BAG AT LEAST UNTIL A TOTAL RECALL CAN BE PERFORMED? IF NOT, I EXPECT THIS RECALL (16V-384) TO BE ACCOMPLISHED VERY SOON BECAUSE HAVING TO WAIT OVER A YEAR WOULD BE EXTREMELY IRRESPONSIBLE ON YOUR PART. PLEASE GET THIS DONE NOW. THANK YOU! MY NEXT STEP WILL BE TO WRITE THE POTUS!

Summary

"TAKATA RECALL" - I CALLED THE SOUTH BAY FORD DEALER IN HAWTHORNE, CA. TODAY ON 1/16/17 AND WAS TOLD MY CAR IS ON THE RECALL LIST BUT THEY CAN'T HELP ME BECAUSE FORD HASN'T TOLD THE LOCAL DEALER WHEN THE PARTS WILL BE READY FOR INSTALL AND REPAIR. THIS IS AN UNACCEPTABLE ANSWER FOR THE CONSUMER. THESE BAGS CAN "KILL YOU" IF THEY EXPLODE. THE SERVICE DEPT. WAS VERY RUDE AND MADE ME FEEL UNIMPORTANT AND NOT WORTH THEIR TIME IN DISCUSSING THE MATTER AND TOLD ME TO CALL FORD! IT SEEMS NOBODY CARES ANYMORE. MY COMPLAINT IS WHEN WILL FORD "FIX" THIS PROBLEM?

Summary

2006 FORD FUSION. ABS ENGAGED WHEN HAVING TO BRAKE SUDDENLY ON ICE. THE BRAKE PEDAL WENT ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR AND WAS SOFT AFTER THAT, GOING ALMOST TO THE FLOOR BEFORE BRAKES WOULD ENGAGE. TOOK THE CAR TO THE NEAREST FORD GARAGE AND WAS TOLD THE HCU WAS PROBABLY OUT AND WOULD COST $2000 TO FIX IT. I TOLD THEM I NEEDED TO THINK ABOUT IT. THEY CALLED BACK LATER AND SAID THEY BLED THE BRAKES AND THAT FIXED THE PROBLEM SO NO REPAIR WAS DONE. THE BRAKES DID THE SAME THING A FEW MONTHS LATER WHEN BRAKING HARD TO AVOID HITTING A CAR WHICH HAD PULLED OUT IN FRONT OF ME. AFTER READING COMMENTS ONLINE, I FIXED THE ISSUE BY DRIVING AT 25 MPH IN A PARKING LOT AND THEN SLAMMING ON THE BRAKES. THE BRAKES WORK NORMALLY AFTER THAT. I'M SURE THIS IS ONLY A TEMPORARY FIX AND I KNOW THE MODEL YEARS 2007 - 2009 ARE BEING INVESTIGATED FOR THIS ISSUE. JUST WANTED TO ADD MY EXPERIENCES WITH MY 2006 FORD FUSION THAT I HAVE OWNED SINCE 2006. *TR

IT IS ALL OVER THE INTERNET WAYS TO FIX THIS PROBLEM BECAUSE FORD WILL NOT FIX. OR DO ANYTHING. THIS IS A SAFETY HAZARD IF YOU HAVE A WRECK OR EMERGE IN WATER YOU WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO GET OUT.

Summary

OUR FORD FUSION ENGINE SUDDENLY STARTED DYING IN TRAFFIC. WHEN STOPPING AT A LIGHT OR STOP SIGN IN TRAFFIC, THE IDLE WOULD DROP BELOW 5000 RPMS, THEN SUDDENLY THE ENGINE WOULD DIE. AFTER PLACING THE VEHICLE IN PARK, WE WOULD HAVE TO RESTART THE ENGINE. USUALLY WOULD DIE AFTER SITTING STILL AFTER ABOUT 10 SECONDS. SOMETIMES THE VEHICLE WOULDN'T START BACKUP RIGHT AWAY, SO WE WERE STUCK ON THE ROAD UNTIL IT FINALLY DECIDED TO START. NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT OR WRENCH WOULD DISPLAY. WE TOOK IT IN TO FORD DEALER AND THEY DETERMINED THE THROTTLE BODY WAS DEFECTIVE. APPARENTLY THIS IS AN ISSUE WITH MOST FORD FUSIONS, AS WELL AS OTHER MODELS THAT USE THE SAME THROTTLE BODY. THE VEHICLE HAS 80,000 MILES ON IT. REPAIR COSTS WERE OVER $1000. WHEN IS FORD GOING TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE FOR THE FUSIONS THAT WERE MADE BEFORE 2009?

Summary

IN 2013 I EXPERIENCED A LOSS OF SPEED/POWER ON MY 2006 FORD FUSION. I PULLED INTO A PARKING SPACE AT A SHOPPING CENTER AND TURNED THE CAR OFF. WHEN THE INCIDENT HAPPENED THE WRENCH LIGHT AND THE TRACTION LIGHT WHERE LIT ON THE DASHBOARD DISPLAY. WHEN I STARTED THE CAR BACK UP THE LIGHTS WERE OFF ON THE DASHBOARD AND THE CAR SEEMED TO RUN FINE. I DID NOT HAVE ANOTHER INCIDENT UNTIL 2014. THIS TIME THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON AS WELL AS THE WRENCH AND TRACTION LIGHTS. I TOOK IT AND HAD A DIAGNOSTIC DONE AND WAS TOLD IT WAS THE P CODE INDICATING THE THROTTLE. I DROVE THE CAR BACK HOME AND LOOKED UP THE P CODE AND FOUND HUNDREDS OF COMPLAINTS REGARDING THIS PART. IT WAS ALSO BEING SAID THAT THIS PART WAS DEFECTIVE AND THAT FORD HAD ISSUED A 10 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY (FROM TIME OF PURCHASE) ON THE PART. AGAIN, AFTER STARTING THE CAR THE NEXT DAY IT WAS RUNNING FINE, NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT OR ANY OTHER LIGHTS ON. IT RAN FINE UNTIL JUNE 2015. AT THIS POINT I HAD HAD ENOUGH AND CALLED THE FORD DEALERSHIP WHERE I PURCHASED THE CAR. MIND YOU, MY CAR ONLY HAS 51K ORIGINAL MILES. I MADE AN APPOINTMENT AND DROPPED IT OFF ON JUNE 24TH, 2015. I WAS CALLED THAT DAY AND TOLD THAT FORD WOULD NOT BE COVERING THE THROTTLE BODY BECAUSE MY VIN# WAS NOT ONE LISTED. I QUESTIONED THIS BECAUSE THE INFORMATION I FOUND REGARDING THE WARRANTY FOR THE PART DIDN'T MENTION SPECIFIC VINS ONLY. THE SERVICE PERSON STATED THAT THEY WOULD FIX IT BUT ONLY IF I PAID FOR THE THROTTLE BODY PART AND LABOR. I PICKED THE CAR UP TODAY, JUNE 25TH, 2015 AND PAID A SHOCKING 788.94 FOR THIS PART AND LABOR AND THE 39.99 OIL CHANGE AND TIRE ROTATION SPECIAL. THIS IS INSANE. I WAS NOT IN A CRASH OR WRECK HOWEVER IT DID SURGE AND DROP SPEED TO 20 MILES AN HOUR WITH CARS BEHIND ME SLAMMING ON BREAKS. WHEN WILL FORD DECIDE TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND COVER THE COST OF THIS PART/REPAIR, WHEN SOMEONE IS KILLED?

Summary

WHILE REVERSING OUT OF MY PARKING SPOT AT WORK THE OTHER DAY, THE CAR COMPLETELY STALLED WHILE MY FOOT WAS ON THE GAS PEDAL. I WAS THANKFUL THAT NO ONE WAS BEHIND ME BECAUSE THE CAR COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN. I PUT IT IN PARK AND RESTARTED IT EASILY, BUT I WAS TOO NERVOUS TO DRIVE ON A HIGHWAY AFTER THE INCIDENT, AS THERE WAS NO INDICATION THE FIRST TIME THAT THE CAR WAS GOING TO SHUT DOWN. I DROVE DOWN A COUNTRY ROAD WITH MY FLASHERS ON UNTIL I GOT TO A SAFE PLACE WHERE I COULD CALL MY HUSBAND. WHILE I WAITED FOR HIM TO COME GET ME, I KEPT THE CAR IN IDLE AND RAN THE HEATER. THE CAR SHUT DOWN AGAIN, AND THIS TIME I WAS ABLE TO TAKE A PICTURE OF THE WARNING LIGHTS THAT ACCOMPANIED THE FAILURE. (SEE ATTACHED.) THE DASH SAID "CHECK CHARGING SYSTEM" AND THE OIL, EMISSIONS, AND BATTERY LIGHTS CAME ON. WE CALLED AND HAD IT TOWED TO A LOCAL SHOP BUT MAN THERE HAS NO IDEA WHAT THE PROBLEM IS AND TOLD US TO TOW IT TO THE DEALERSHIP. MY CAR HAS OVER 100,000 MILES, BUT I HAVE HAD TROUBLE WITH IT SINCE I BOUGHT IT. I HAVE HAD MECHANICS TELL ME THAT THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM DOES NOT WORK WELL. I HAVE ALSO HAD THEM TELL ME THAT IT IS NORMAL FOR THE AIR-CONDITIONER IN THESE CARS TO JUST TURN ON RANDOMLY TO COOL THE ENGINE, WHICH MINE DOES FREQUENTLY. MOREOVER, THE BATTERY IN THE CAR NOW IS THE THIRD ONE I'VE HAD. BRAKE LIGHTS BURN OUT CONSTANTLY, AND THE TRANSMISSION MAKES TERRIBLE NOISES WHEN I START THE CAR AND PARTICULARLY WHEN I REVERSE. THIS NEW PROBLEM OF STOPPING UNEXPECTEDLY IS SIMPLY UNACCEPTABLE. I HATE TO GIVE UP MY FUSION BECAUSE WHEN IT'S RUNNING CORRECTLY, IT'S A GREAT CAR; HOWEVER, THIS LAST INSTANCE IS JUST TOO DANGEROUS. IF I WERE ON THE HIGHWAY, I COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED. THIS SAME THING HAS HAPPENED TO FRIENDS OF MINE WHO OWNED FORDS. I WILL BE CALLING FORD AND ASKING THEM ABOUT THROTTLE BODY AND PCM PROBLEMS THAT OTHERS HAVE NOTED IN THEIR COMPLAINTS.

Summary

WHILE DRIVING MY FUSION ON 11/1/15, BOTH FRONT TURN SIGNALS STOPPED WORKING WHEN ATTEMPTING TO MAKE A TURN ONTO AN INTERSTATE. THE DASH INDICATED A WARNING THAT THE LEFT AND RIGHT FRONT TURN SIGNAL LAMP WAS NOT WORKING WHEN THE SIGNAL WAS ACTIVATED BY THE SWITCH. I ASSUMED A BULB HAD BURNT OUT. HOWEVER, ONCE MY CAR WAS TURNED COMPLETELY OFF, THE LEFT FRONT BULB REMAINED ON, DESPITE NO ONE BEING IN THE CAR. THE LIGHT REMAINED ON FOR MULTIPLE HOURS BEFORE I BECAME AWARE OF IT ONCE I RETURNED TO MY VEHICLE. DURING THIS TIME, IT WAS DRAINING THE BATTERY. I THE. HAD TO DRIVE MY CAR ON CITY STREETS AND THE INTERSTATE TO GET HOME. I TRIED PURCHASING NEW BULBS, BUT FOUND THAT BOTH BULBS CURRENTLY IN THE CAR WORKED FINE. NO WIRING WAS LOOSE OR FRAYED. LATER THAT WEEK, I BROUGHT IT TO A MECHANIC WHO DIAGNOSED IT AS A FAILED SMART JUNCTION BOX THAT HAS LED TO THE TURN SIGNAL NOT WORKING. I CONTACTED MY LOCAL DEALERSHIP IN ACCORDANCE WITH MY MECHANIC'S SUGGESTION. I WAS INFORMED THERE IS NO RECALL ON THIS PART. HOW IS THERE NO RECALL WHEN THIS IS CLEARLY A SAFETY ISSUE? MALFUNCTIONING TURN SIGNALS WHILE DRIVING WITH NO DIRECT CAUSE IS A PROBLEM. ESPECIALLY WHEN IT LEADS TO A LIGHT REMAINING ON LEADING TO KILLING THE CAR BATTERY. ACCORDING TO THE DEALERSHIP, THE ONLY SOLUTION IS PURCHASING A NEW JUNCTION BOX FROM THEM (NO LOCAL PARTS STORES CAN EVEN FIND ONE IN THEIR INVENTORY) AND HAVE IT INSTALLED AND PROGRAMMED BY THEM.

AFTER SLOWING DOWN JUST BEFORE THE STOP SIGN, MY CAR STARTED TO SPUTTER AND WHEN I TRIES TO ACCELERATE AFTER THE INTERSECTION IT STOPS ACCELERATING. I HAD TO LIMP ALONG TO GET HOME. LUCKILY, I WAS JUST ABOUT 1.5 MILES FROM HOME. I HAVE DONE FOR THIS CAR ALL SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE AND NEVER MISSED THE RECOMMENDED PERIODICAL OIL CHANGES. I DRIVE LESS THAN 5000 MILES A YEAR WITH THIS CAR AN IT HAS LESS 59,000 MILES ON IT. THIS MUST BE DUE TO A DEFECTIVE PART FROM THE FACTORY AND I SHOULD NOT PAY FOR IT. I HAVE LEFT IT PARKED ON MY DRIVEWAY UNTIL I HEAR FROM YOU AND BY WAY OF YOUR GOOD OFFICES HOPEFULLY FROM FORD. THANK YOU FOR KIND ASSISTANCE.

MY 06 FUSION HAS BEEN SHIFTING FUNNY, BUT I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS. WHILE HAVING MY OIL CHANGED, I HAD A 6 POINT INSPECTION DONE, AND NOTHING CAME BACK EXCEPT MY TIE-RODS NEEDING REPLACED. ONE NIGHT, WHILE DRIVING HOME, SUDDENLY MY CAR HAD A HESITATION WHEN SHIFTING INTO SECOND GEAR. IT WOULD REV UP TO 3 RPM, THEN SHIFT HARD INTO 2ND GEAR AND RUN FINE. TWO STOP LIGHTS LATER, THE SHIFT BEGAN TO GET HARDER. I FINALLY MADE IT HOME, BUT LATER HAD TO RUN AN ERRAND. THE SHIFTING GOT WORSE. NOW, IT WAS AS IF I WAS ABOUT TO GET A NECK INJURY FROM THE SHIFTING FROM 1ST TO 2ND GEAR. I REALIZED THAT I NEEDED TO GET HOME, BECAUSE IT WAS TOO LATE TO GO TO THE DEALERSHIP. WHEN HEADING TO WORK THE NEXT MORNING, THE WRENCH LIGHT POPPED UP ON THE DASHBOARD. LIVING ONLY 7 MINUTES FROM WORK, I THOUGHT I WAS FINE. BUT NOW, I NO LONGER MADE IT TO 2ND GEAR. IT STAYED ON FIRST, AND REMAINED REVVED UP TO THE POINT IT WAS LOSING POWER. I WAS SCARED THAT I WAS GOING TO GET STUCK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD. NOW, WITH MY VEHICLE IN THE SHOP, I'M BEING TOLD THAT THE TRANSMISSION NEEDS AN OVERHAUL. THE COST IS $2800. WHEN IS THE RECALL GOING TO COME INTO PLAY?

MY BRAKE LIGHTS AND REAR BLINKERS ARE NO LONGER WORKING. ONE DAY THEY JUST WENT OUT. OF COURSE I TOOK IT TO MY MECHANIC RIGHT AWAY SINCE IT IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS DRIVING AT NIGHT WITH NO BRAKE LIGHTS AND I HAD RECENTLY ENROLLED INTO NIGHT CLASSES FOR MY FALL SEMESTER. I LEFT MY CAR WITH MY MECHANIC FOR NEARLY A WEEK BECAUSE HE THOUGHT THE SWITCH NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. HE ORDERED A NEW ONE, BUT WHEN IT ARRIVED HE CALLED TO TELL ME THAT IT WASN'T WHAT HE THOUGHT IT WAS. HE LET ME KEEP THE NEW SWITCH FREE OF CHARGE SINCE HE WASN'T ABLE TO HELP ME AT ALL. I HAD TO WALK TO THE SHOP TO PICK UP MY CAR BECAUSE MY MECHANIC WAS JUST AS BAFFLED AS I WAS. SINCE SOMEONE WHO WENT TO SCHOOL FOR THIS KIND OF STUFF COULDN'T HELP ME, I FIGURED I WOULD GOOGLE THE ISSUE TO SEE IF THERE WERE ANY ANSWERS OUT THERE. I FOUND WEBSITES FULL OF PEOPLE HAVING SIMILAR ISSUES.

Summary

MY DAUGHTER NOTICED BOTH FRONT TURN SIGNALS WERE NOT FLASHING WHILE BOTH REAR ONES WORKED FINE. ALL INDICATORS FROM INSIDE THE CAR SHOWED FRONT TURN SIGNALS WORKING WHEN THEY WERE NOT. I REPLACED BULBS TO NO AVAIL. I WENT ON INTERNET AND DISCOVERED OTHER OWNERS WHO HAD THE SAME OR SIMILAR PROBLEM WITH TURN SIGNALS. PEOPLE ON THE INTERNET RECOMMENDED REPLACEMENT OF THE SMART JUNCTION BOX AT THE DEALER FOR APPROXIMATELY $600. I TOOK CAR TO LOCAL DEALER FOR REPLACEMENT OF SMART JUNCTION BOX. TURN SIGNALS BEGAN TO WORK FINE. WHAT I AM CONCERNED ABOUT, IS THAT THIS SAME SMART JUNCTION BOX CONTROLS SEVERAL OTHER FUNCTIONS OF THE CAR. SEVERAL COMMENTS FOUND ON THE INTERNET SAID THAT FORD FUSIONS HAD ACTUALLY LOST POWER ON THE HIGHWAY WHEN BEING DRIVEN AT NORMAL SPEEDS. THE ENTIRE CAR WENT DEAD IN HIGHWAY TRAFFIC. WITHOUT POWER STEERING, THEY COULD HARDLY GET CAR OUT OF THE HIGHWAY. THIS WAS REPORTED SEVERAL TIMES. AGAIN, THE REASON FOR THE LOSS OF POWER WAS THE FAILURE OF THE SMART JUNCTION BOX. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW FORD CANNOT BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE TO A SAFETY RECALL FOR THIS ISSUE. *TR

TO AVOID ACCIDENTS ON THESE OCCASIONS, THE VEHICLE HAD TO BE PULLED OVER AND SUBSEQUENTLY, PARKED. HIGHWAY DRIVING WAS ALSO AVOIDED MOST OF THE SUMMER FOR SAFETY AND CONCERN. THERE IS ALSO AN ISSUE WITH THE FRONT DRIVER SIDE AIRBAG, AS RECENT AS THIS SUMMER, THE SEAL BECAME DISTORTED, TWISTED AND CRACKED IN THE DASHBOARD. LASTLY, ABOUT 2 WEEKS AGO, THE REAR DOOR LOCK ON THE DRIVER SIDE NO LONGER WORKS, THE DOOR MUST BE OPENED MANUALLY FROM THE INSIDE OF THE CAR. THESE ARE VALID VEHICLE DEFECTS AND SAFETY ISSUES AND FORD MUST STEP UP AND DO THE RIGHT THING FOR ALL PARTIES OF INTEREST. *TR

Summary

THE POWER STEERING ON MY CAR FAILED TODAY. ON MY WAY TO WORK THE STEERING BECAME DIFFICULT. AT LUNCH, THE STEERING STARTED TO REALLY BE DIFFICULT AND LOCKED UP AS I PULLED INTO THE LOT. WE CHECKED THE POWER STEERING FLUID AND IT WAS FULL. AFTER WORK, I HEADED HOME. THE CAR WAS OKAY TO BEGIN WITH BUT THE LONGER I DROVE THE HARDER THE STEERING BECAME- IT BECAME INCREASINGLY HARD TO TURN CORNERS. I STARTED HAVING TO USE TWO HANDS TO TURN THE WHEEL. FINALLY, WHILE TURNING RIGHT, THE POWER STEERING FAILED.THE STEERING WHEEL LOCKED UP WOULDN'T TURN THE WHEELS AT ALL. I GOT VERY LUCKY AND HAPPENED TO BE TURNING INTO MY DRIVEWAY WHEN THE STEERING LOCKED FOR GOOD. ONCE THE CAR COOLED, WE WERE ABLE TO MOVE MY CAR COMPLETELY INTO THE DRIVEWAY AND PARK. HAD I BEEN ON A STREET OR THE HIGHWAY WHEN MAKING THAT TURN, THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO WAY FOR ME TO COMPLETE THE TURN AND A CRASH OR ACCIDENT WOULD HAVE BEEN A VERY VERY GOOD POSSIBILITY. *TR

Summary

MY 2006 FORD FUSION WITH A 3.0 V6 AND AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION HAS HAD THE FOLLOWING SAME ISSUES OVER THE PAST 18 MONTHS: - LOSES POWER AT CITY, HIGHWAY AND PARKING LOT SPEEDS WITHOUT WARNING .... AT LEAST A HALF-OF-DOZEN TIMES - ENGINE STILL IDLES/RUNS ROUGH, BUT WILL NOT ACCELERATE BEYOND 15-20 MPH - WRENCH LIGHT INDICATOR COMES ON, (SOMETIMES ENGINE LIGHT TOO). WHEN I TURN THE ENGINE OFF AND RESTART THE VEHICLE, IT WILL OPERATE FINE MOST THE TIMES. IT HAS DONE IT REPEATEDLY A COUPLE OF TIMES. THE WRENCH LIGHT INDICATOR WILL GO OFF AFTER RESTART, BUT THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WILL REMAIN ON FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS THEN GO OUT. - FORD CLAIMS THAT THE 2006 FUSION IS NOT COVERED UNDER CUSTOMER SATISFACTION PROGRAM #13N03 WHICH COVERS NEWER FUSIONS AND OTHER FORD MODELS. FORD ADVISE TO HAVE THE REPAIR MADE AND THEY WILL REIMBURSE CUSTOMERS OF THE REPAIR EXPENSE AT A FUTURE DATE, IF FORD SHOULD EVER ISSUE A CSP PROGRAM FOR THE 2006 FUSION. - I HAVE HAD THIS HAPPEN AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS ON INTERSTATE HIGHWAYS AND RURAL HIGHWAYS WITHOUT SHOULDERS TO PULL OVER. THIS IS OBVIOUSLY A DANGEROUS SITUATION AND NEEDS TO BE RECTIFIED ASAP. - I HAVE HAD SEVERAL INCIDENTS WHERE I WAS ALMOST HIT FROM BEHIND DUE TO THIS ISSUE AND IT'S JUST A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE SOMEONE IS SERIOUSLY INJURED DUE TO THIS ISSUE. MY RESEARCH SHOWS THAT THIS IS AN ONGOING PROBLEM FOR PEOPLE WITH CERTAIN FORD PRODUCTS. - FORD.....DUE THE RIGHT THING AND MAKE IT RIGHT FOR ALL! *TR

IT POPS INTO GEAR VERY HARD, THE WRENCH LIGHT AND THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ON. IT GETS STUCK IN SECOND GEAR AND BURNS A LOT OF GAS. IT STARTED SOON AFTER THE WARRANTY RAN OUT. I HAD A LOT OF REPAIRS DONE AND THE POWER TRAIN AND ENGINE IS NOT WORKING RIGHT AS OF YET, SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH THIS FORD FUSION 06 AND A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE HAVING THE SAME PROBLEMS WITH IT.

Summary

WHILE SHIFTING FROM HIGHER GEAR TO LOWER GEAR WHILE CLIMBING A HILL, TRANSMISSION JUMPED BETWEEN GEARS, SLAMMING THE GEARS AS IF POPPING A CLUTCH (IT'S AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION). ON ANOTHER HILL, THE VEHICLE DID NOT ENGAGE IN THE LOWER GEAR, REVVING UP TO ABOUT 4000 RPM AS IF IN NEUTRAL, LEAVING THE CAR DECELERATING ON THE UPHILL STRETCH AMONG SPEEDING TRAFFIC. I HAD TO MOVE THE GEAR SHIFT TO NEUTRAL AND BACK TO DRIVE, EASE ON THE ACCELERATOR, AND THE LOWER GEAR ENGAGED, AFTER SLOWING TO ABOUT 35 ON 65 MPH SPEED LIMIT FREEWAY. FORD LISTS THE REPAIR IN TSB 08-24-1 AS "TRANSMISSION HARSH SHIFTING" AND RECOMMENDS REPLACEMENT OF THE MAIN CONTROL. THIS PART HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AS FAULTY AND COMMON WITH THE TRANSMISSIONS INSTALLED ON MY VEHICLE AND MANY OTHER MAKES AND MODELS. IT PRESENTS A CLEAR DANGER TO DRIVERS AND PASSENGERS WHO RISK BEING REAR-ENDED DUE TO SUDDEN DECELERATION OR STRANDED DUE TO "HARSH SHIFTING" DAMAGE TO THE TRANSMISSION AND DRIVE TRAIN. I HAVE NO CONFIDENCE DRIVING THE CAR OUT OF TOWN OR NEAR ANY HILL, AND THE VEHICLES SHOULD BE RECALLED. *TR

I WAS TRYING TO ACCELERATE TO MERGE ON TO THE FREEWAY. MY 2006 FORD FUSION REFUSED TO RESPOND. THE REVS WENT UP TO 4000 RPM AND THE CAR JUST STAYED THERE GOING VERY SLOWLY. AFTER A FEW SECONDS, IT JERKED FORWARD, SO I PULLED BACK ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND LET THE "TANTRUM" PAST. I'VE HAD SEVERAL CLOSE CALLS SINCE-- THE MOST SCARY ONE OCCURRING IN STOP-AND-GO TRAFFIC. WHEN ACCELERATING AFTER SLOWING DOWN, THE FUSION WILL REV UP AND CREEP SLOWLY FORWARD UNTIL ONE REMOVES ONE'S FOOT FROM THE GAS PEDAL AND ALLOW IT TO SETTLE BACK IN GEAR. LUCKILY, I'VE AVOIDED BEING REAR-ENDED BY FAST APPROACHING CARS. RECENTLY, FORD CLEANED THE THROTTLE BODY AND CHARGED $232.00, I STILL HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM AND AM STILL WAITING FOR A RECALL ON THIS VEHICLE. INCIDENTALLY, THE STALLING ALSO HAPPENS AFTER MAKING A RIGHT OR LEFT HAND TURN. *TR

AS REPORTED MULTIPLE TIMES THESE TRANSMISSIONS BEGIN TO SLIP VERY BADLY. WHILE TRYING TO MERGE INTO TRAFFIC ALMOST 90% OF THE TIME HOT OR COLD AT ABOUT 40MPH WHEN YOU PRESS THE GAS THE TRANSMISSION WILL SLIP LEAVING YOU HANGING OUT TO DRY(THIS IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS)...WHEN DOWNSHIFTING SOMETIMES AROUND 20MPH THERE WILL BE A LOUD BANGING UNDER THE DRIVERS SIDE AREA...THE TSB WAS ISSUED WAY BACK IN 2007 REGARDING ALL THESE ISSUES BUT NO RECALL...THE FLOOR MATS WERE RECALLED? BUT NOT THIS ISSUE. ALL OVER THE INTERNET YOU SEE THE INSANE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE HAVING THIS SAME ISSUE DUE TO THE AISIN TRANSMISSION THEY USED....SAME PROBLEM OCCURRED IN MULTIPLE MAKES AND MODELS OF VEHICLES WITH SAME TRANSMISSION COMPONENTS. THEY SAY REPLACE THE TRANSMISSION "VALVE BODY" OR AKA CONTROL ASSEMBLY...ITS ONLY $2,000 IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY BURNT UP THE WHOLE TRANSMISSION THEN ITS $4-5K. *TR

THE BREAK CAUSES INTERFERENCE WITH THE REAR DOOR HANDLE BEZEL AND LIMITS TRAVEL OF DOOR HANDLE (DOOR WON'T OPEN). IT APPEARS THE SAME THING IS STARTING TO HAPPEN ON THE OTHER REAR DOOR. CAR ONLY HAS 85000 MILES. IT APPEARS TO BE A DESIGN/MANUFACTURING DEFECT. I WILL BE GOING TO FORD TO GET A REPLACEMENT WHICH I HOPE HAS HAD A DESIGN CHANGE TO FIX THIS.

WHEN I WAS DRIVING 55 MPH, THE CAR DID A LITTLE JERK LIKE IT HAD MISSED. NO LIGHTS CAME ON AND I DROVE TO THE NEAREST SIDE ROAD OFF THE HIGHWAY AND STOPPED. I TRIED TO GO FURTHER BUT ONLY MADE IT ABOUT 100 YARDS BECAUSE I LOST ALL POWER INCLUDING STEERING. MY CAR WAS HALF IN THE ROAD SO I WAS THANKFUL THIS WAS NOT A HIGH TRAFFIC ROAD. THE ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON AND THERE WAS A SMELL. IT WASN'T THE SMELL OF OIL BUT WAS A FLUID SMELL. THE CAR WOULD NOT TURN OVER AND HAD TO BE TOWED TO THE DEALERSHIP. IT CAME UP AS A MISFIRE 3 AND THEY TOLD ME THAT THEY HAD TO REPLACE THE COIL. THIS DID NOT FIX THE PROBLEM AND THEY SAID THE 3 COIL WHEN IT BLEW IT TOOK OUT THE OTHER COILS AS WELL AS THE 6 SPARK PLUGS AND THE PCM. THIS WAS A $2250 REPAIR. I ONLY HAVE 68,000 ON THE CAR. AFTER READING OTHER TSB, SOME STATED THAT IF UNDER 80,000 MILES/8 YEARS THAT IT WAS COVERED UNDER THE MANUFACTURE WARRANTY. I CALLED FORD AND WAS TOLD I MISSED THE 8 YEAR MARK BY EXACTLY 30 DAYS. THERE WAS NOTHING THAT I COULD DO BUT HOLD ON TO MY RECEIPTS IN CASE THERE WOULD EVER BE A RECALL. THIS IS THE ONLY MAJOR ISSUE I HAVE HAD. I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY OTHER ENGINE ISSUES WITH THE CAR. I'VE ONLY HAD 2 MINOR ISSUES BEFORE THIS AND THEY WERE THE LUMBAR GOING OUT IN THE DRIVER'S SEAT ($300 REPAIR THAT I DID NOT REPLACE) AND 2 DOOR HANDLES BREAKING FROM THE INSIDE THAT WERE $160 TO REPLACE EACH. I DID REPLACE BC OF THE SAFETY ISSUE OF NOT BEING ABLE TO GET OUT OF THE CAR. AFTER READING THE TSB, I SEE THAT THE PCM AND COILS ARE A RECURRING ISSUE AND I AM THANKFUL I WAS ON A SIDE ROAD WHEN IT OCCURRED... I AM VERY WORRIED THAT IT MAY OCCUR AGAIN AND HOPE THIS ISSUES WILL BE OR HAS BEEN LOOKED INTO FOR THE SAFETY OF OTHERS. *TR

I AM THE ORIGINAL OWNER OF A 2006 FORD FUSION WITH ONLY 65000 MILES. I RECENTLY HAD A VERY SCARY NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE DUE TO A DEFECT IN THIS VEHICLE. AFTER MUCH RESEARCH ONLINE AND SPEAKING TO CERTIFIED MECHANICS I AM SURE FORD IS WELL AWARE OF THE PROBLEM THAT EXISTS WITH THE IGNITION COILS EXPLODING DUE TO A COMPUTER MALFUNCTION. THIS CAUSES THE CAR TO STOP. MY CAR HAPPENED TO STOP WHILE I WAS ON THE FREEWAY. I WON'T GO INTO A LOT OF DETAIL BUT IT WAS SCARY AND COULD HAVE POTENTIALLY COST ME MY LIFE. FORTUNATELY I WAS ABLE TO SAFELY COAST TO THE SHOULDER AND WAIT FOR AAA TO COME TO MY RESCUE. I TOOK MY CAR TO A MECHANIC WHO GOT THE CAR RUNNING AGAIN AFTER REPLACING TWO IGNITION COILS AND MY SPARK PLUGS, BUT IT BROKE DOWN AGAIN ON THE WAY HOME FROM THE MECHANIC. AGAIN, THE CAR JUST SHUTS OFF WITHOUT WARNING, BUT THIS TIME I WAS LEFT IN THE MIDDLE OF TRAFFIC WAITING FOR AAA. MY CAR IS NOW AT THE FORD DEALERSHIP AND THE BILL IS REALLY HIGH. BOTH, MY MECHANIC AND THE FORD SERVICE TECHNICIAN CONFIRMED THAT THERE IS AN ISSUE WITH THE COMPUTER THAT IS CAUSING IGNITION COILS TO "BURN UP" OR "EXPLODE". I UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS AN 8 YEAR OR 80,000 MILE WARRANTY WITH COVERS THIS ISSUE, BUT UNFORTUNATELY I AM OVER THE 8 YEARS (BUT STILL 15,000 UNDER THE MILEAGE). THIS SHOULD BE A RECALL. SOMEONE COULD POTENTIALLY LOSE THEIR LIFE BECAUSE FORD CHOOSES TO OVERLOOK THIS TICKING TIME BOMB. I AM NOW HAVING TO SPEND $2200 TO REPAIR THIS ISSUE WHEN FORD SHOULD BE THE ONE COVERING THE COST TO MAKE IT RIGHT. *TR

I OWN A 2006 FORD FUSION, AND MY COMPLAINT IS ABOUT THE FAILURE OF INTERIOR DOOR HANDLES. THREE OF THE FOUR INTERIOR DOOR HANDLES WILL NOT OPEN THE DOOR FROM THE INSIDE OF THE VEHICLE, THE WINDOWS HAVE TO BE ROLLED DOWN AND THE DOORS OPENED FROM THE OUTSIDE. SPECIFICALLY BOTH FRONT DOORS, AND THE LEFT REAR DOOR HANDLES DO NOT WORK. I PURCHASED THE VEHICLE NEW IN 2006. I CALLED THE FORD CONSUMER COMPLAINT LINE,AND WAS TOLD THAT BECAUSE THE VEHICLE IS BEYOND THE 36 MONTH WARRANTY PERIOD THERE WAS NOT ANYTHING THAT COULD BE DONE. OBVIOUSLY IF YOU CAN NOT GET OUT OF YOUR CAR WITHOUT ROLLING DOWN THE WINDOW AND USING THE OUTSIDE HANDLE; SHOULD BE A SAFETY ISSUE. I HAVE SEARCH ONLINE AND THERE NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS WITH THE 2006-2010 YEARS ON THE INTERIOR DOOR HANDLES ON ONLINE FORUMS, AS WELL AS YOU TUBE ON HOW TO REPLACE THEM. THE SPOKESPERSON AT FORD SAID THAT THEY DO NOT MONITOR ONLINE FORUMS. THEY SAID THAT WOULD FILE MY COMPLAINT WITH MY VIN IN THEIR DATABASE. YOU CAN FIND THE HANDLES ON EBAY AND AMAZON FOR ABOUT $42.00. I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY HELP THAT YOU CAN GIVE IN GETTING FORD TO RECOGNIZE THIS AS A SAFETY ISSUE AND MAKE THE REPAIRS TO MY VEHICLE. *TR

I WAS TRAVELING ON A LOCAL HIGHWAY BEHIND A SLOW MOVING TRAFFIC AT 30MPH. A CAR LET ME OVER IN TO THE LEFT TRAVELING LANE, AS I PUSHED DOWN THE GAS PADDLE TO ACCELERATE MY CAR JUMPED SEVERAL TIMES AND MADE A POPPING SOUND. IT WENT FROM 30MPH TO 0MPH AND THE CAR BEHIND ME SLAMMED ON IT'S BRAKES AND CAME WITHIN INCHES OF HITTING ME! AFTER DOING RESEARCH ONLINE LAST NIGHT (HTTP://REPAIRPAL.COM/TRANSMISSION-PROBLEM-242#), I REALIZED THAT MANY FUSION OWNERS HAVE HAD SIMILAR ISSUES, AND THAT FORD IS AWARE OF THE ISSUE WITH THE GERMAN TRANSMISSION INSTALLED IN THIS MODEL. IT WAS A VERY SCARY, LIFE THREATENING EXPERIENCE AND I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT FORD HAS NOT RECALLED 2006 FUSION KNOWING THAT THE TRANSMISSION HAS A HISTORY OF BEING FAULTY! I WAS FEARFUL FOR MY LIFE, THE LIFE OF MY PUPPY IN THE BACKSEAT, AND THE LIFE OF THE DRIVER AND OTHER DRIVERS BEHIND ME! I HAVE THIS QUESTION FOR FORD, "IS MAKING MONEY MORE IMPORTANT THAN A HUMAN LIFE?" LET'S GET THIS RIGHT AND RECALL ALL MODELS THAT HAVE THIS SPECIFIC GERMAN TRANSMISSION INSTALLED! *TR

Summary

WHEN ATTEMPTING TO ACCELERATE AT A HIGHWAY SPEED, WHICH CAUSED THE CAR TO DOWNSHIFT, THE TRANSMISSION WOULD "SLIP" OUT OF GEAR, CAUSING THE RPM'S TO REV UP TO AN UNSAFE LEVEL. TO GET THE CAR BACK INTO GEAR, I HAD TO REMOVE MY FOOT FROM THE ACCELERATOR AND LET IT COAST FOR A BIT. ONCE THE RPM'S RETURNED TO BETWEEN 1000-2000, IT SLAMMED HARD INTO GEAR AND BEGAN DRIVING AGAIN. THIS OCCURS REGULARLY EVEN AT REGULAR STREET SPEEDS, WHEN YOU NEED TO ACCELERATE WHERE A DOWNSHIFT IS NECESSARY. THIS COULD EASILY LEAD TO A CRASH. FORD MOTOR COMPANY KNOWS ABOUT THE PROBLEM WITH THE TRANSMISSIONS IN THESE CARS, BASICALLY IT IS DUE TO VALVE BORE WEAR IN THE MAIN CONTROL. THEY HAVE A DEFECTIVE CONTROL BODY WHICH HAS EXTREME SPOOL BORE WEAR. A TSB WAS ISSUED: TSB BULLETIN DATE: FEB 2007 VARIOUS DRIVEABILITY/TRANSMISSION SYMPTOMS - PCM/TCM CALIBRATION UPDATES 3.0L - AISIN F21 AUTO TRANS. ( NHTSA ITEM NUMBER - 10021277 ). NO RECALL BY FORD TO DATE. IF YOU CATCH IT BEFORE THE CLUTCH IS BURNT UP, YOU CAN GET BY WITH REPLACING THE MAIN CONTROL VALVE BODY FOR AROUND $800-$1000, HOWEVER IF YOU'RE BEYOND THAT POINT IT'S A $4500+ NEW TRANSMISSION. *TR

Summary

MY FORD FUSION V6 SEL HAS BEEN SLIPPING SINCE 50,000 MILES. I HAVE HAD 2 MINOR TRANSMISSION CHANGES WITHIN THE PAST 3 YEARS. TODAY ME AND MY KIDS WERE DRIVING ABOUT 20-35 MPH AROUND TOWN WHEN THE TRANSMISSION SLIPPED. THE CAR WOULD NOT RESPOND TO ACCELERATING ON THE GAS PEDAL. I TRIED PLACING THE CAR INTO LOW GEAR, REVERSE WITH NOTHING HAPPENING. THIS WAS ON A BUSY INTERSECTION, THE CAR FINAL AFTER FORCING ME AND MY KIDS TO JERK FORWARD STARTED TO WORK AGAIN. EACH TIME I STOPPED AT A STOP LIGHT THE CAR TOOK 1-2 MINUTES TO RISE ABOVE 20 MPH. I FINALLY MADE IT TO MY HOUSE WHICH HAS A SMALL SLANT ON THE DRIVE WAY AND THE CAR STRUGGLED JUST TO MAKE IT IN THE GARAGE. THIS WAS THE MOST EMBARRASSING DAY OF MY LIFE!!!! THE CAR CLEARLY IS OUT OF WARRANTY AND EACH TIME I LOOK UP TSB'S I SEE MORE AND MORE 2006-11 FORD FUSION POSTINGS. BEING A FORD FAN MY WHOLE LIFE I MUST SAY IF NOTHING IS DONE WITH THIS COMPLAINT I WILL NO LONGER SUPPORT FORD AND WILL ENCOURAGE OTHER NOT TO AS WELL. THE NEXT STEPS ARE TO GO TO THE FORD DEALERSHIP AND DO A DIAGNOSTIC. I MAY ALSO TRY A MAJOR TRANSMISSION CHANGE, MY FEAR WOULD BE TO DO A TRANSMISSION CHANGE WITH ZERO CONFIDENCE THAT THIS WILL FIX THE PROBLEM!!! FORD MUST KEEP QUALITY AND SAFETY IN MIND WITH EVERY CAR THEY SELL ESPECIALLY A 1ST GENERATION MODEL. *TR

THE RIGHT REAR DOOR HANDLE SNAPPED WHEN MY 3 YR OLD GRANDBABY TRIED TO OPEN DOOR. AS TIME HAS GONE ON, THE LEFT REAR DOOR HANDLE SNAPPED. THAT WAS FOLLOWED BY THE DRIVERS DOOR HANDLE SNAPPING. I NOW HAVE TO CRAWL TO THE PASSENGER SIDE TO GET OUT. USED TO BE ABLE TO PULL THE LOCK FEATURE TO OPEN IT, BUT, CAN NO LONGER DO THAT. I'VE SEEN A MILLION COMPLAINTS ABOUT THESE HANDLES. IN CASE OF EMERGENCY, ONE CANNOT GET OUT OF THE CAR. THIS COULD EASILY RESULT IN DEATH THAT COULD EASILY BE AVOIDED BY EXITING THE VEHICLE. I ALSO HAVE THE ADDITIONAL PROBLEM OF LIMITED USE OF MY LEG DUE TO MAJOR SURGERY AND WEAKNESS FROM MY CHEMO MEDS. I FEEL LIKE A SITTING DUCK. WHY IS THIS BEING IGNORED?

WE STARTED HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE TRANSMISSION IN OUR 2006 FORD FUSION IN EARLY 2012. WE REPLACED THE TRANSMISSION IN APRIL WHEN IT HAD ROUGHLY 65,000, WITH A USED TRANSMISSION. IT WAS FINE FOR A FEW MONTHS, AND NOW WE ARE HAVING HARD SHIFTING AND TRANSMISSION SLIPPAGE. THE CAR HAS AROUND 70,000 MILES NOW. I HAVE HEARD OF THIS ISSUE BY MANY FUSION OWNERS, AND FORD REFUSES TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. IT IS IN MY OPINION THAT THE TRANSMISSIONS IN THIS CAR NEED TO BE RECALLED. *TR

THEN, EVEN THOUGH THE VEHICLE WAS IN DRIVE, IT WENT "OUT OF GEAR" AND I WAS UNABLE TO PROPEL THE VEHICLE FORWARD. I HAD THE VEHICLE TOWED TO THE DEALERSHIP. THE DEALERSHIP STATED THAT THE VALVE BODY OF THE TRANSMISSION WOULD NEED TO BE REPLACED. THIS IS DUE TO FORD TSB DUE TO PART OF THE TRANSMISSION THAT IS DEFECTIVE. REFER TO NHTSA #10021277. IF I HAD BEEN MERGING INTO TRAFFIC OR IF I HAD BEEN ATTEMPTING TO CROSS THE STREET AND THE VEHICLE WILL NOT PROPEL ITSELF FORWARD IN THE MANNER I EXPECT, IT COULD LEAD TO SERIOUS ACCIDENT. PLEASE HAVE FORD RECALL THIS PART FOR ALL SUCH VEHICLES SO NO ONE GETS INJURED OR KILLED. *TR

I WAS DRIVING HOME FROM WORK, IN THE RAIN, WHEN I GOT THE DASHBOARD MESSAGE THAT MY RF TURN SIGNAL WAS OUT. DROVE THE REST OF THE WAY HOME AND TURNED OFF THE IGNITION AND THE LF PARKING LIGHT STAYED ON. CHECKED THE BULBS AND FUSES AND ALL WERE FINE. DID SOME RESEARCH ONLINE AND FOUND OUT ABOUT SIMILAR ISSUES WITH THE SMART JUNCTION BOX. ONE SUGGESTION WAS TO DISCONNECT THE BATTERY TO SEE IF IT RESET. TRIED THAT WITH NO SUCCESS. WE RECONNECTED THE BATTERY THE NEXT MORNING AND PARKING LIGHT CAME BACK ON. HAD TO REMOVE THE BULB SO I NOW HAD NO FRONT TURN SIGNALS. BROUGHT IT IN TO THE DEALERSHIP, ASSUMING THE WORST AFTER MY ONLINE RESEARCH, AND GOT THE NEWS IT WAS THE SJB TO THE TUNE OF $700. I WAS TOLD IT WASN'T UNDER RECALL BECAUSE IT'S NOT A SAFETY ISSUE. HAVING WORKING LIGHTS AND TURN SIGNALS WOULD SEEM TO QUALIFY AS A SAFETY ISSUE TO ME? *TR

CAR EQUIPPED WITH AISIN F21 6 SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. WHEN THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION DOWN SHIFTED THERE WAS A LOUD CLUNK AND THE CAR SLOWLY CAME TO A HALT. THE ENGINE RPM INCREASED AS I TRIED TO GET THE VEHICLE TO MOVE OFF TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. AFTER SHUTTING THE CAR OFF AND RESTARTING IT WAS ABLE TO GET ME HOME. THE NEXT TIME I DROVE IT, IT WAS FINE FOR A WHILE AND DID IT AGAIN. TOOK IT TO THE FORD DEALER AND WAS TOLD IT NEEDED AN NEW TRANSMISSION CONTROL VALVE BODY. I ASKED IF THERE HAD BEEN PROBLEMS WITH THIS TRANSMISSION IN OTHER FUSIONS AND THEY SAID NONE THAT THEY KNEW OF. IN LOOKING ON THE INTERNET I FIND THAT THIS TRANSMISSION HAS BEEN A PROBLEM FOR MANY PEOPLE FROM THE YEARS 2005-2010. CHECK SERVICE BULLETIN PUT OUT BY FORD # 08-24-1 PUBLICATION DATE NOV. 13 2008. I AM SURE THERE ARE OTHER SERVICE BULLETINS ALSO. MANY PEOPLE HAVE HAD THEIR VEHICLE STOP ON A VERY BUSY HIGHWAY AND HAVE BEEN PUT IN DANGER BECAUSE OF THE ABOVE PROBLEM.

ONCE I WAS ABLE TO GET THE CAR TO A SHOP, IT WAS DETERMINED IT FELL UNDER TSB 11-8-2. THE FIX FOR THIS, A NEW PCM, 6 COILS, 6 SPARK PLUGS, VALVE COVER GASKET, TUBE SEALS AND AN AIR FILTER ELEMENT, NOT TO MENTION A TOW TO THE LOCAL FORD DEALER TOLOAD THE NEW PCM.

PURCHASED 2006 FORD FUSION SEL 6 CYL, NEW. AND ABOUT YEAR AGO STARTING HAVING TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS. UPON ACCELERATING BETWEEN 25-40, THE TRANSMISSION JUMPS IN AND OUT OF GEAR, OFTEN MAKING A LOUD BANGING NOISE AND TAKING AWAY ALL ACCELERATION. IN ORDER FOR IT TO GET BACK INTO GEAR, YOU HAVE TO COMPLETELY LET OF THE GAS AND IT WILL EVENTUALLY GO BACK INTO GEAR. THIS ALLOWS FOR MINIMAL ACCELERATOR AT BEST WHEN TRYING TO SPEED UP. THIS FAILURE OCCURS RANDOMLY EVERYTIME I DRIVE THE VEHICLE. IF NOT FIXED, THE TRANSMISSION IN MY CAR WILL EVENTUALLY GO BAD. DUE TO NO CODES SHOWING UP ON THE COMPUTER, THAT ON THE FORD BULLETIN IT WAS GOING TO NEED A NEW VALVE BODY, TRANSMISSION FLUSH, AND REPROGRAMMING. THIS IS GOING TO COST ROUGHLY $2200. THE VALVE BODY, FROM FORD, WAS $1400. I GOT INTO AN ACCIDENT IN MARCH OF THIS YEAR DUE TO NOT BEING ABLE TO ACCELERATE FROM ANOTHER VEHICLE MERGING INTO MY LANE,TRANSMISSION JUMPED OUT GEAR. *TR

UPON REENTERING VEHICLE AND RETURNING HOME, REMOTE LOCK WORKS OCCASIONALLY WITH HALF THE TIME THE ACTUAL LOCK MECHANISM PREVENTS DOOR FROM BEING LOCKED. THIS ISSUE IS IDENTICAL TO ALL OF THE OTHER 24 POSTS IN THIS CATEGORY. SHOULD ALSO BE NOTED THAT ALL FOUR DOOR HANDLES AND MANUAL LOCKS EXHIBIT SAME "PAINT DELAMINATION" OF CHROME-COLORED SURFACES. VEHICLE PURCHASED AS CPO IN 2011 AT 58,000 MILES. NOW HAS 74,200 MOSTLY INTERSTATE MILES. FORD SHOULD ADDRESS THIS ISSUE AS IT APPEARS THROUGH RESEARCH TO BE PRETTY WIDE-SPREAD ON THESE VEHICLES. THIS WOULD BE A SAFETY ISSUE IN EVENT THAT AN EMERGENCY/RAPID EXIT IS REQUIRED. THIS WOULD BE A SECURITY ISSUE AS VEHICLE DOESN'T PROPERLY LOCK ALL THE TIME. *JS

FIRST THE REAR DRIVER'S SIDE INTERIOR DOOR HANDLE BROKE WHEN MY GRANDDAUGHTER WAS ATTEMPTING TO OPEN IT. RECENTLY THE FRONT DRIVER'S SIDE INTERIOR DOOR HANDLE BROKE. THE FAKE CHROME IS PEELING OFF OF THE PASSENGER SIDE BOTH FRONT AND REAR DOOR HANDLES. IT WAS PEELING OFF OF THE TWO HANDLES THAT BROKE BUT I NEVER THOUGHT THAT THEY WOULD BREAK. ALTHOUGH I AM ABLE TO OPEN THE WINDOW TO ACCESS THE EXTERIOR DOOR HANDLE TO OPEN THE DOOR IN MOST CASES, THE WINDOWS DON'T ALWAYS OPEN IN THE COLD WEATHER AND THE DOOR IS VERY DIFFICULT TO OPEN USING THE BROKEN DOOR HANDLE. I AM CONCERNED I OR A PASSENGER WILL BE STUCK IN THE VEHICLE AND NOT BE ABLE TO GET OUT IN AN EMERGENCY. *TR

Summary

BOUGHT THE CAR USED WITH APPROX. 45,000 MILES ON IT FROM FORD DEALERSHIP. WITHIN A WEEK I WAS BACK AT THE FORD DEALERSHIP I BOUGHT IT AT. THE CAR WOULD NOT ACCELERATE, STUCK IN GEAR, JERK VIOLENTLY. THEY GAVE ME A LOANER CAR TO DRIVE, ANOTHER 06 FORD FUSION. THEY TOLD ME THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE CAR AND IT WAS THE WAY I DRIVE. I TOLD THEM I DIDN'T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS WITH THE LOANER CAR OR ANY OTHER CAR I'VE EVER DRIVEN OR OWNED. THEY INSISTED I WAS WRONG. OVER THE NEXT MONTH I BROUGHT THE CAR BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP AND ENCOUNTERED THE SAME RESISTANCE. THE PROBLEM GOT PROGRESSIVELY WORSE AND DANGEROUS TO DRIVE TO THE POINT WHERE I WOULD BE GOING 60+ MPH ON A HIGHWAY AND THE CAR WENT INTO NEUTRAL. THE TRANSMISSION COMPLETELY FAILED IN 2010, AT THAT TIME I HAD IT REPLACED, COSTING $3,000. MAY 31, 2012 - APPROX 65,000 MILES. SIMILAR PROBLEMS AGAIN. CAR WOULD NOT ACCELERATE, VERY HESITANT, ENTIRE CAR SHAKES VIOLENTLY WHILE DRIVING. CHECK ENGINE LIKE CAME ON. I TOOK THE CAR TO MY MECHANIC, HE TESTED AND DETERMINED THREE COILS WENT BAD. LOOKED IN THE CAR AND DISCOVERED THE COILS HAD ACTUALLY MELTED. WITH RESEARCH, DETERMINED THE COMPUTER SYSTEM HAD FAILED. COILS AND COMPUTER SYSTEM NEED TO BE REPLACED. APPROX COST (SO FAR) - $1500.00. *TR

I SUFFERED THE BASIC SAME COMPLAINTS WITH THE TRANS SLIPPING OUT OF GEAR AFTER FREEWAY DRIVING AND HAVING IT SLAM BACK INTO GEAR. IT USUALLY HAPPENS WHEN I LET OFF THE THROTTLE AND NEED TO RE-ACCELERATE. I HAVE BEEN LUCKY SO FAR I USUALLY CAN GET IT TO RE-ENGAGE IN GEAR WITHOUT CAUSING ANY PROBLEMS BEHIND ME. ONE TIME IT LOCKED INTO A HIGH GEAR AND I ALMOST BURNED UP THE CLUTCH BECAUSE IT WOULD NOT DOWNSHIFT WHEN I GOT OFF THE FREEWAY. I PULLED OVER TO THE SHOULDER TO FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO AND WHILE I WAS STOPPED I TURNED OFF THE MOTOR. WHEN I TURNED IT BACK ON APPROX 5 MINS LATER IT HAD RESET ITSELF AND I WAS ABLE TO DRIVE HOME FINE. THIS IS HOW MY COMMUTE IS BASICALLY EVERY DAY NOW, IT SEEMS TO HAPPEN MORE OFTEN IN THE AFTERNOON COMMUTE WHEN THE WEATHER IS WARMER. (ON A SIDE NOTE IF YOU GET STRUCK SOMEWHERE, ALLOW THE CAR SIT FOR 5 MINS WITH KEY OFF ALLOWING IT TO RESET AND IT MIGHT ALLOW YOU TO ARRIVE SOMEWHERE SAFE). *TR

TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS. DAUGHTER WAS DRIVING CAR AND BACKING UP FROM DRIVE IT POPPED AND WOULD NOT MOVE IN DRIVE. IT WOULD REVERSE AND DRIVE SLOW AT LOWER GEAR, BUT NOT DRIVE IN D. MECHANIC SAID GEARS ARE FINE AND NOT TRANSMISSION , BUT CONFIRMED MAY BE SENSOR IN TRANSMISSION. FROM READING SIMILAR COMLAINTS, IT IS WIDESPREAD PROBLEM AND A POTENTIAL ROAD HAZARD. RECALLS HAVE BEEN DONE ON SAME MAKE AND MODEL, BUT FROM 2007 - CURRENT. WHY ISNT THE 2006 COVERED? THE AUTO MECHANIC HAS BROUGHT VEHICLE TO 3 DIFF AUTO SHOPS AND PROBLEM IS THAT IT IS A MAZDA ENGINE WITH GERMAN PARTS IN A FORD CAR AND NOT FAMILIAR WITH PARTS. FORD DEALER WAS CONTACTED AND ALSO FORD PRODUCT COMPLAINT LINE. ALL THEY WOULD SAY WAS THERE ARE NO RECALLS FOR 2006 FORD FUSIONS. WHY??? THE AUTO SHOPS INSIST ON REPLACING ENTIRE TRANSMISSION TO WARRANTY THEIR WORK AND CHARGE $2500+ WHEN ALL IS NEEDED IS A PART FOR LESS $. *TR

I HAVE BEEN HAVING TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS WITH MY CAR BUT THE SERVICE LIGHT HAS NEVER COME ON! I HAVE ALSO HAD THE KEY STUCK IN THE IGNITION! THESE PROBLEMS ARE GETTING RIDICULOUS AND TO HAVE FORD NOT COVER THEM IS JUST NOT ACCEPTABLE! THE TRANSMISSION IS SLIPPING, NOT SHIFTING WHEN IT IS SUPPOSED TO, DOWNSHIFTING HARD. ANYTIME I TRY TO ACCELERATE TO PASS, OR SPEED UP IT BANGS AND JERKS REALLY HARD I'VE ALMOST DRIVEN OFF THE ROAD A FEW TIMES BECAUSE OF HOW HARD IT BANGS. IT JUST KEEPS GETTING WORSE, TO THE POINT MY KIDS ASK ME "MOM, WHAT WAS THAT?" THIS IS A COMPLETE HAZARD TO DRIVE ON THE ROAD CAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW IF OR WHEN IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN. LET ALONE HAVING MY KIDS IN THE CAR! I HAVE BEEN ALMOST REAR-ENDED A COUPLE OF TIMES BECAUSE THE TRANSMISSION SLIPS AND WON'T GO INTO GEAR, ALL IT DOES IS REV THE ENGINE AND IF YOU TAKE YOUR FOOT OFF THE GAS TO TRY AND GET THE RPM'S TO GO DOWN, YOU REALLY SLOW DOWN AND COULD CAUSE AN ACCIDENT! IS THIS WHAT FORD NEEDS?! IS FOR SOMEONE TO GET INTO A BAD ACCIDENT AND GET SERIOUSLY INJURED OR DIE IN ORDER TO GET THIS RECALLED?! THIS IS HAPPENING TO SOOO MANY FORD FUSIONS AND IT IS ALL OVER THE INTERNET WITH THE EXACT SAME PROBLEMS!! SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE ABOUT THIS! THERE IS NO REASON WHY THEY CAN RECALL THE TRANSMISSIONS ON THE NEWER FORD FUSIONS BUT NOT THE VERY FIRST YEAR IT WAS OUT!! THEY KNOW SOMETHING IS GOING ON WITH THESE TRANSMISSION, THEY JUST DON'T WANT TO SPEND THE MONEY TO FIX THEM ALL AND I FIND THAT ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!! MY KIDS SHOULD NOT HAVE TO RIDE IN A CAR THAT COULD BE THE CAUSE OF AN ACCIDENT ALL BECAUSE FORD DOESN'T WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THERE IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM! IT'S NOT FAIR THAT I PAID 20K FOR THIS CAR AND WHEN IT HAS ABOUT 60K MILES ON IT FOR THE TRANSMISSION TO START TO MESS UP AND THEY WANT ME TO PAY FOR IT!! THIS IS GIVING FORD A BAD NAME!!! I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND A FORD TO ANYONE EVER!!! *TR

WITHIN A FEW MONTHS OF PURCHASE NOTICED VERY VIOLENT UPSHIFTS WHILE ON THE FREEWAY AND OCCASIONALLY THE CAR WOULD SLIP INTO NEUTRAL WHILE TRAVELING @ 65-70MPH (VERY SCARY). TOOK CAR TO DEALERSHIP WHILE UNDER USED CAR WARRANTY AND WAS TOLD NOTHING WAS WRONG AND IT WAS THE WAY I WAS DRIVING. WE STARTED FILING COMPLAINTS WITH FORD BUT THEY WERE OF NO HELP AND THEY HAVE TOLD US THAT THE TRANS NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. TWO YEARS LATER (@75K MILES) THE TRANSMISSION COMPLETELY FAILED WHILE DRIVING (VERY DANGEROUS). TRANS AND TCM MODULE NEEDS TO BE REPLACED (APPROX: $5000) AND NOT EVEN SURE IF THAT WILL FIX THE PROBLEM. *TR

SINCE I BOUGHT THE CAR IN SPRING OF 06, BULBS NEED TO BE REPLACED QUITE FREQUENTLY. WHEN I CHANGE THEM, THE OLD BULB LOOKS BLACK AND BURNT. A FEW DAYS AGO, I WAS DRIVING AND MY FRONT, RIGHT DIRECTIONAL STOPPED WORKING. I REPLACED THE BULB, THINKING THAT WAS THE ISSUE AGAIN, BUT IT WASN'T. I TOOK IT TO THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY SAID THE SMART JUNCTION BOX NEEDED TO BE REPLACED BECAUSE IT SHORTED OUT INTERNALLY. ESTIMATE IS $600 AFTER I HAD TO PAY $100 JUST TO FIND THE PROBLEM. THAT SEEMS LIKE AN EXPENSIVE FIX FOR ONE DIRECTIONAL. I CAN'T AFFORD THAT RIGHT NOW, SO I CAN'T FIX IT. SEEMS RIDICULOUS. CAR HAS 85,000 MILES ON IT. *TR

Summary

I HAVE A 2006 FORD FUSION. I BOUGHT IT USED JUST A YEAR AGO, AND SHORTLY AFTER IT STARTED MAKING A LITTLE BIT OF A POPPING SOUND WHEN TURNING. I KNEW THERE HAD TO BE SOMETHING WRONG WITH IT. IT EVENTUALLY GOT WORSE MAKING A LOUD CREAKING SOUND WHENEVER I WOULD TURN, PUSH THE GAS, AND HIT THE BREAKS WHILE GOING A LOWER SPEED. WE TOOK IT IN TO BE LOOKED AT, AND THEY DIDN'T SEE ANYTHING WRONG. THEN WE WENT SOMEWHERE ELSE, AND THEY MISS DIAGNOSED IT. FINALLY, WE WENT TO A FORD DEALERSHIP AND FOUND OUT IT WAS A CRACKED SUBFRAME. FORD WOULD NOT COVER THE COST OF FIXING IT, SO WE EMAILED FORD TO COMPLAIN AND THEY STILL WOULD NOT DO ANYTHING. I PLAN ON WRITING COMPLAINTS ANYWHERE I CAN. THIS PROBLEM CAN BE DANGEROUS, AND THEY DON'T SEEM TO CARE. ARE THEY WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO GET HURT FIRST. IT SOUNDS LIKE THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL FOR THIS. *KB

APPROXIMATELY 3 YEARS AFTER PURCHASE, CHROME COVERING ON INTERIOR DOOR HANDLES STARTED PEELING. IN NOVEMBER, 2010, THE REAR PASSENGER INTERIOR DOOR HANDLE SNAPPED. PIECES FELL OUT AND THE DOOR CANNOT BE OPENED FROM THE INSIDE. IN MARCH 2011, THE DRIVERS SIDE REAR INTERIOR DOOR HANDLE ALSO SNAPPED. ALTHOUGH THE DOORS CAN STILL BE LOCKED BY THE REMOTE, THEY HAVE TO BE OPENED FROM THE OUT SIDE. THIS IS AN EXTREME SAFETY ISSUE IN THE EVENT THAT SOMEONE NEEDS TO EXIT THE CAR QUICKLY. I HAVE READ THOUSANDS OF SIMILAR COMPLAINTS ON-LINE. THE DEALER GAVE ME A QUOTE TO REPAIR BUT I DO NOT HAVE THE FUNDS. THE DEALER DID SEND AN INQUIRY TO FORD ON MY BEHALF BUT WE HAVE HEARD NOTHING BACK. FORD NEEDS TO OWN UP TO THIS AND DO A RECALL. *KB

Summary

06 FORD FUSION DOESN'T SHIFT - I WAS TRAVELING WITH MY DAUGHTER FROM NV TO AZ. AFTER HAVING DRIVEN 2 HOURS I EXITED THE HIGHWAY, STOPPED AT A STOP SIGN AND WAS ABLE TO TRAVEL APPROXIMATELY A 100 FEET WHEN OUT OF NO WHERE THE ENGINE REVVED UP TO 5000 RPMS AND STOPPED MOVING. THE VEHICLES BEHIND ME WERE CAUGHT OFF GUARD BECAUSE OF MY SUDDEN STOP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD. I TRIED PUSHING THE GAS PEDAL TO GET US TO THE ROADSIDE BEFORE BEING REAR-ENDED. THE ENGINE KEPT REVVING UP AND CREEPING TOWARD THE SIDE. I PULLED TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD TO LET THE CARS BEHIND ME PASS AND WAITED 5 MINUTES BEFORE DECIDING I WAS NOT GOING TO HAVE MY DAUGHTER AND I IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT STRANDED ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. I PUSHED THE GAS PEDAL AND GOT THE CAR TO VERY SLOWLY ACCELERATE AND MOVE WITHOUT SHIFTING BUT CATCHING SPEED. ONCE THE CAR WAS MOVING AT 60 MPH THERE WEREN'T ANY PROBLEMS, BUT IF I HAD TO SLOW DOWN OR COME TO A STOP THE CAR WOULD TAKE FOREVER TO BEGIN CATCHING SPEED. I WAS ABLE TO GET US TO A SAFE PLACE 25 MINS AWAY AND PARKED THE CAR UNTIL THE NEXT DAY. BECAUSE IT WAS A SMALL TOWN AND A SATURDAY THERE WERE NO MECHANICS AVAILABLE UNTIL MONDAY. I HAD TO STAY THE WEEKEND WAITING FOR A MECHANIC. WHILE WAITING I DID A GOOGLE SEARCH AND DISCOVERED THE HORRIFYING FACT THAT FORD IS FULLY AWARE OF THIS ISSUE CAUSED BY THEM PURCHASING TRANSMISSIONS WITH FAULTY VALVE'S. I AM A SINGLE MOTHER AND IT IS UNBELIEVABLE TO ME THAT FORD CAN GET AWAY WITH SELLING A FAULTY PRODUCT. I AM TAKING MY CAR TO A TRANSMISSION MECHANIC THAT WAS REFERRED BY A FRIEND WHERE I AM GOING TO DETERMINE IF THIS ISSUE CAN EVEN BE FIXED. I ONLY HAVE 10 PAYMENTS LEFT ON THE CAR AND AM DUMBFOUNDED THAT I MIGHT HAVE TO SPEND 1/2 OF WHAT I OWE ON THE CAR TO FIX A PROBLEM THAT FORD CAUSED. WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET A RECALL LIKE THEY DID WITH THE 2010 FUSIONS? *TR

I SAT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE INTERSECTION TRYING TO GET IT TO GO AND FINALLY AFTER ABOUT 15 SECONDS I GOT IT TO RUN AND LUCKILY THERE WAS NO TRAFFIC COMING OR I WOULD HAD TO GET OUT OF MY CAR AND RUN TO THE SIDE BECAUSE IT WOULDN'T START GOING. I DON'T HAVE THE KIND OF MONEY TO GO INTO A REPAIR SHOP AND SPEND 5000 DOLLARS ON A NEW TRANSMISSION WHEN I KNOW THAT IS WHAT IT IS. IT OCCURS PROBABLY ONCE A DAY. *TR

THAT NOISE HAS BEEN INVESTIGATED BY TWO SEPARATE FORD DEALERS, (ONE WHERE WE PURCHASED THE VEHICLE) THE OTHER AN INDEPENDENT FORD DEALER I PURCHASED AN EXPLORER FROM. NEITHER COULD FIND THE CAUSE OF THE SOUND. IT OCCURS OVER BUMPS SOMETIMES AND SOMETIMES OVER SMOOTH PAVEMENT. ONE MECHANIC FROM A GOODYEAR REPAIR DEALER HEARD AND THOUGHT IT WAS THE SWAY THEN; TIGHTEN IT, BUT THE SOUND STILL EXIST. THE SOUND IS ONLY HEARD ON THE PASSENGER SIDE.

Summary

ACCORDING TO MOTOR ALL DATA TECHNICIAN REPORT THERE HAS BEEN A TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN POSTED FOR MY 2006 FORD FUSION REGARDING THE FRONT CV-JOINTS. IT STATES, "2006/2007 FUSION/MILAN VEHICLES BUILT ON OR BEFORE 7/16/2007 MAY EXHIBIT A MOMENTARY FRONT CV-JOINT CLICKING, GRINDING, RUBBING, OR CRACKLING NOISE WHEN FIRST ACCELERATING THE VEHICLE AFTER SITTING IN COLD AMBIENT TEMPERATURES BELOW 20 F. THE NOISE IN MOST CASES WILL ONLY LAST FOR A FEW ROTATIONS OF THE WHEELS AND THEN GO AWAY. THIS MAY BE CAUSED BY THE GREASE IN THE OUTER CV-JOINT ALLOWING METAL TO METAL CONTACT." CORRECTIVE ACTION IS "REPLACING THE AXLE SHAFTS". DUE TO THE FACT THAT A TECHNICIAN'S BULLETIN HAS BEEN MADE PUBLIC I ASSUME THAT MANY VEHICLES ARE, HAVE, AND WILL BE EXPERIENCING THE SAME ISSUE. FORD SHOULD STOP THIS ON GOING ISSUE BY ANNOUNCING A RECALL. I AM SURE MANY OTHERS WILL AGREE. THIS IS WITHOUT A DOUBT THE MANUFACTURER'S MISTAKE AND THEY SHOULD STEP UP, TAKE THE BLAME, AND FIX THE ISSUE. YES, NOTHING MAJOR HAPPENED IN MY CASE, BUT METAL ON METAL CONTACT WHILE A VEHICLE IS IN MOTION CAN CAUSE SERIOUS VEHICLE AND PERSONAL DAMAGE. PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS ISSUE.

IN VERY NORMAL, IF NOT GENTLE USE THE INTERIOR DOOR HANDLES ON OUR 2006 FORD FUSION ALL BROKE IN THE LATTER PART OF 2010, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE DRIVERS SIDE REAR DOOR. THE CAR HAS APPROX. 68,000 MILES ON IT AND IS A KNOWN DEFECTIVE PART THAT HAS BROKEN IN THOUSANDS OF THESE CARS AS CAN BE RESEARCHED. THE ONLY WAY ONE CAN EXIT THE VEHICLE IS TO LEAVE THE CAR RUNNING AND OPEN THE WINDOW WHILE REACHING OUTSIDE TO USE THE OUTER DOOR HANDLE, THEN OPEN THE DOOR AND ROLL THE WINDOW BACK UP AND THEN SHUT OFF THE CAR. THIS PRESENTS A SERIOUS SAFETY HAZARD WHEN THE OCCUPANTS MIGHT HAVE TO EXIT THE VEHICLE QUICKLY TO AVOID IMMINENT DANGER. AFTER PAYING CLOSE TO $6,000 FOR EXTENDED WARRANTIES, THE DEALERSHIP REFUSED TO OFFER REPLACEMENT OF ANY SORT, STATING THAT THERE HAD BEEN NO SAFETY RECALLS ON THIS ISSUE. I HAVE NEVER BEEN UNABLE TO EXIT A CAR NORMALLY AND THIS TRULY COULD BE A DEADLY ISSUE THAT THE MANUFACTURER SHOULD CONSIDER THE RAMIFICATIONS OF TURNING A BLIND EYE TO. *TR

I HAVE CALLED FORD AND REGISTERED A COMPLAINT WITH THEM ABOUT THIS, I HAVE ALSO DONE SOME RESEARCH ONLINE AND FROM TALKING TO MY LOCAL DEALER I HAVE FOUND THAT THIS IS AN ENTIRELY ALL TO COMMON OCCURRENCE. I AM JUST NOW GETTING AROUND TO FIXING THIS BECAUSE THE DOOR LATCH HAS NOW STOPPED WORKING (2/13/2011, ~38.000MI), I AM ASSUMING THE FAILURE OF THE DOOR LATCH IS A DIRECT RESULT OF THE BROKEN INTERIOR HANDLE AND LETTING IT GO WITHOUT BEING REPAIRED.

I HAVE HAD 10 YR OLD CARS WITH 200,000 MILES THAT SHIFTED BETTER THAN THIS CAR DID AFTER 15000 MILES. RIDICULOUS....... FORD KNOWS OF THIS PROBLEM AND HAS REFUSED SERVICE AND REPLACEMENT DUE TO COST.

Summary

WHEN ACCELERATING, MERGING INTO TRAFFIC, THE TRANSMISSION POPS OUT OF GEAR AND THE ENGINE WILL CONTINUE TO ACCELERATE WHILE THE CAR COASTS, AND SLOWS. THE TRANSMISSION WILL EVENTUALLY ENGAGE A LOWER GEAR WHEN IT HAS SLOWED DOWN, BUT ONLY IF YOU ARE PATIENT AND IGNORE THE URGE TO ACCELERATE AS TRAFFIC BEARS DOWN ON YOU FROM BEHIND. THIS IS TERRIBLY FRIGHTENING AND DANGEROUS AS THE VEHICLES WHICH REQUIRE THE MOST ROOM TO STOP, USUALLY TRAVEL IN THE SAME LANE ONE IS MERGING ON TO. THIS OCCURS NOT ONLY ON FREEWAY ENTRANCES, BUT ON LONG UPHILLS AND ANYTIME ONE LETS OFF THE THROTTLE AND THEN TRIES TO ACCELERATE AGAIN QUICKLY. A DIAGNOSTIC FROM AN AUTO REPAIR SHOP REVEALS NOTHING. I HAVE CONTACTED ABOUT 30 OTHER SAME MODEL CAR OWNERS WHO DESCRIBE THE SAME PROBLEM. THE FORTUNATE FEW WHO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GET TO THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM HAVE SAID THAT THE DEFECT IS IN THE "VALVE BODY". MOST HAVE THIS PROBLEM AFTER THE 50,000 MILE MARK. MANY, LIKE MYSELF, HAVE HAD THIS PROBLEM FOR A LONG TIME. IT IS A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE ONE OF US GETS REAR ENDED AND CRASH, OR WORSE! *TR

MY 2006 FORD FUSION TRANSMISSION STARTED SLIPPING AT 34,000 MILES. DEALER SAID THERE WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO SINCE MY CAR WAS MADE IN THE FIRST PART OF 2006, NO ADDITIONAL WARRANTIES WERE AVAILABLE. I BOUGHT THE CAR UNDER THE ASSUMPTION THAT THERE WAS A WARRANTY STILL AVAILABLE. NOW MY TRANSMISSION IS GOING OUT, I STILL OWE 11,000 ON MY CAR. AFTER TALKING TO ALOT OF FUSION PEOPLE, THIS APPEARS TO BE A VERY VERY COMMON PROBLEM. IT'S ALSO VERY DANGEROUS, THE CAR SLIPS OUT OF GEAR REVS UP AND THEN POPS BACK INTO GEAR JUST AS YOU ARE TRYING TO GET INTO A LANE. VERY DANGEROUS, I HAVE ALMOST WRECKED SEVERAL TIMES AND HAD TO PULL OVER. *TR

Summary

I OWN A 2006 FORD FUSION SE WITH THE 3.0 V6 ENGINE. AT JUST OVER 55,000 MILES, VEHICLE WOULD COME OUT OF GEAR WHILE SHIFTING BETWEEN 30-60MPH, ROUGHLY 2ND-3RD, OR 3RD-4TH GEAR. VEHICLE WOULD GO INTO A HIGH REV AND NOT MOVE. AFTER LETTING OFF GAS, YOU HAVE TO WAIT 5 SECONDS FOR IT TO "RE-ENGAGE", THEN SOMETIMES IN A HIGH GEAR AT LOW SPEEDS CAUSING VEHICLE TO SHAKE VIOLENTLY. THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS AND DANGEROUS MECHANICAL FLAW WITH THIS TRANSMISSION! IT IS THE AISIN TRANSMISSION USED IN A VARIETY OF FORD, LINCOLN, AND MERCURY VEHICLES. (2005-2006 FORD FIVE HUNDRED, 2006 FORD FUSION, 2006 MERCURY ZEPHYR, 2006 MERCURY MILAN, 2005-2006 MERCURY MONTEGO) THERE ARE 100'S TO 1000'S OF COMPLAINTS ON THESE AND MULTIPLE TSB (TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETINS) THROUGH FORD MOTOR COMPANY, ETC. (TSB 07-26-9, TSB 08-24-1) CALLING IT AISIN TRANSMISSION HARSH SHIFTING. HARSH BEING AN EASY TERM TO DESCRIBE THIS PROBLEM. AND STILL NO RECALL ON THIS OR COMPENSATION FROM DEALER OR MANUFACTURER. IF YOUR VEHICLE IS OUT OF WARRANTY, YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN WITH THIS $1,500 PLUS REPAIR ON A DEFECTIVE VALVE BODY ACCORDING TO FORD MOTOR CO. THIS IS A TREMENDOUS SAFETY ISSUE ESPECIALLY WHEN NEEDING TO MERGE OR ACCELERATE RAPIDLY TO GET ONTO A FREEWAY SYSTEM OR OVERTAKE AND PASS ON THE HIGHWAY! I GUESS IT WILL TAKE A SERIOUS INJURY OR FATALITY TO CAUSE A LAW SUIT FOR ANYTHING TO BE DONE EXCEPT A TSB! WITH ALL THE DOCUMENTATION AND COMPLAINTS I HAVE SEEN ON THESE, I HOPE THE MANUFACTURERS HAVE A STRONG LEGAL TEAM! I WILL NEVER BUY A FORD, LINCOLN, OR MERCURY AGAIN. AND WE WONDER WHY AMERICANS BUY FOREIGN! IT IS A SAD DAY PEOPLE, BUT THE TRUTH HURTS! OUR US CAR MAKERS NEED TO STAND BEHIND THEIR PRODUCTS BETTER AND IMPROVE THEIR BUSINESS ETHICS OR THEY WILL CONTINUE TO FAIL AND GO BANKRUPT. *TR

TRANSMISSION SLIPS IN AND OUT OF GEAR WHILE DRIVING AT ANY SPEED. THESE ARE VERY HARD GEAR SHIFTS AND THE ENTIRE CAR SHAKES. SOMETIMES IT WON'T GO INTO ANY GEAR AT ALL, INCLUDING REVERSE. THE CAR HAS UNUSUALLY HIGH RPM DURING SOME GEAR SHIFTS...PARTICULARLY WHEN SHIFTING GETS "STUCK" BETWEEN 4TH & 5TH GEARS. MY CAR WAS STUCK IN THE MIDDLE OF AN INTERSECTION BECAUSE THE TRANSMISSION FROZE AND WOULDN'T SHIFT GEARS. THE CAR CANNOT ACCELERATE AT A NORMAL SPEED ANYMORE WHICH DOESN'T ALLOW FOR NORMAL HIGHWAY DRIVING, AND IS DANGEROUS DUE TO THE FACT THAT THE TRANSMISSION IS SLIPPING GEARS OR STICKING IN A GEAR. *TR

Summary

2006 FORD FUSION, WITH 65000 MILES, TRANSMISSION GETTING STUCK BETWEEN SECOND AND THIRD GEAR. WHEN THE TRANSMISSION IS STUCK, THE CAR WILL REV TO 5-6K RPMS AND DROP SEVERELY IN SPEED. WHEN MOVING FROM A STOP POSITION THE CARE THEN TAKES ABOUT 40-60 SECONDS TO GET UP TO 25MPH (BECAUSE IT IS STILL IN SECOND OR THIRD GEAR). THIS OCCURRED WITH ME ENTERING AN ON RAMP TO A FREEWAY AND DRIVING FROM A STOP LIGHT IN A BUSY BUSINESS DISTRICT. I TOOK THE CAR INTO THE DEALERSHIP WHERE THE CAR WAS PURCHASED AND SERVICED SINCE PURCHASE 12/31/2005. AFTER THE FIRST DAY IN THE SHOP THE DEALER TOLD ME THE TRANSMISSION IS BEYOND REPAIR AND I NEED A NEW (REBUILT) FORD TRANSMISSION. THEY WANTED $80 FREIGHT FOR DELIVERY OF TRANSMISSION AND APPROX. $4500 FRO THE TRANSMISSION AND INSTALLATION. WHEN I BOUGHT OUT MY LEASE LAST YEAR I PURCHASED AN EXTENDED WARRANTY ON MY CAR (THE ORIGINAL ENDED AT 36000 MILES). IT HAS NOW BEEN FIVE DAYS WITH MANY PHONE CALLS, A RENTAL CAR (ONLY COVERED FIVE DAYS UNDER MY WARRANTY), AND A VISIT FROM A PRIVATE INSPECTOR/ADJUSTER. THE WARRANTY COMPANY IS STILL "REVIEW THE CLAIM" AND HAS NOT YET AUTHORIZED THE REPAIR. WITHOUT AUTHORIZATION FROM THE WARRANTY CO I CAN NOT BEGIN REPAIRS. IT WILL TAKE 2-3 DAYS TO GET THE TRANSMISSION SHIPPED AND 2-3 DAYS FOR THE REPAIR. I BELIEVE FORD SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE AND RECALL THE TRANSMISSIONS. NOT ALL OWNERS HAVE THE EXTENDED WARRANTY LIKE I DO. THE FAILING TRANSMISSIONS ARE A HUGE SAFETY DEFECT AND COULD LEAD TO EXPENSIVE REPAIRS, ACCIDENTS AND DEATH. SIMILAR COMPLAINT CAN BE FOUND ON REPAIR PAL AT: HTTP://REPAIRPAL.COM/TRANSMISSION-PROBLEM-242. *TR

FORD IS DOING NOTHING ABOUT IT EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE PLENTY OF DOCUMENTATIONS THAT IT IS AN ONGOING SITUATION. IT OCCURS EVERYTIME THE VEHICLE IS DRIVEN. I DON'T FEEL SELLING IT TO SOMEONE ELSE IS THE ETHICAL SOLUTION. FOR SHOULD BACK/STAND BEHIND THERE PRODUCT. NOT RUN FROM THE PROBLEM.

HIGHWAY OR REGULAR ROAD DRIVING TRANSMISSION GIVES OUT. THE TRANSMISSION RED LINES AND THE CAR FAILS TO RESPOND MOSTLY ON SLIGHT TO MODERATE INCLINES. YOU MUST LET UP OFF THE GAS AND ALLOW THE RPMS TO DROP TO NORMAL AND ALLOW FOR THE CAR TO CHANGE GEARS. DEALERSHIP CLAIMS NO ISSUES BUT THEY DO HAVE A TSB ON THE PROBLEM BUT CLAIM THAT CUSTOMER NEEDS TO PAY $2500 TO FIX THE PROBLEM. *TR

Summary

I HAVE HAD MY 2006 FUSION FOR TWO YEARS. MY TRANSMISSION STARTED SLIPPING AROUND 60,000 MILES. AT FIRST IT ONLY SLIPPED WHEN I TRIED TO ACCELERATE QUICKLY, BUT OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS IT HAS GOTTEN WORSE. I AM AFRAID TO DRIVE IT ON THE HIGHWAY BECAUSE WHEN IT SLIPS IT JUMPS OUT OF GEAR AND I CAN'T ACCELERATE AT ALL. I JUST PRAY THAT THE PERSON BEHIND ME CAN SLOW DOWN IN TIME NOT TO HIT ME AND MY CHILDREN. IT TAKES A FEW MILES FOR IT TO JUMP BACK INTO GEAR. I HAVE HAD TO PULL OVER ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD TO WAIT FOR IT TO GET BACK INTO GEAR. I CANNOT AFFORD A NEW TRANSMISSION! THIS CAR REPLACED MY FORD ECONOLINE WHICH I DROVE FOR OVER 200,000 MILES BEFORE ITS TRANSMISSION WENT OUT. IF I WANTED TO BUY A TRANSMISSION I WOULD HAVE BOUGHT ONE FOR THE VEHICLE I WAS REPLACING. THIS IS THE ONLY CAR I HAVE TO GET MY KIDS AND MYSELF TO WORK AND TO SCHOOL. I CANNOT AFFORD EXPENSIVE REPAIRS ON A RELATIVELY NEW CAR; AND I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO. THESE CARS ARE DANGEROUS. *TR

HAVING TRANSMISSION ISSUES AT 50,000 AND ABOVE ON THE 2006 FORD FUSION... I HAVE RESEARCHED THIS ISSUE AND FORD HAS TRIED TO BRUSH IT OFF AS I NEED A BRAND NEW TRANSMISSION, BUT I MADE THEM CHECK THEIR SERVICE ALERTS... THERE IS AN ALERT OUT ON ALL 2006 FORD FUSION'S WITH A CERTAIN ISSUE WITH THE TRANSMISSION AND SINCE THERE IS AN ALERT OUT ON IT. I WAS WONDERING WHY THERE ISN'T A RECALL ON THIS VEHICLE? MY CAR IS VERY UNSAFE TO DRIVE, IT SLIPS IN AND OUT OF GEAR AND IT IS VERY UNSAFE TO DRIVE ON THE HIGHWAY BECAUSE IT WILL GET STUCK IN CAR AND VERY UNSAFE TO DRIVE ON REGULAR ROADS AT REGULAR SPEEDS. AS IT WILL GET STUCK IN LOWER GEARS AS WELL. I DO PLAN ON GETTING THE PROBLEM FIXED BECAUSE I NEED MY CAR, BUT I ALSO FEEL THAT I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY SINCE FORD HAS A KNOWN ISSUE OF THIS PROBLEM ON THIS MODEL CAR. WHAT WILL IT TAKE? FOR SOMEONE TO BE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY AND THEIR CAR GETS STUCK IN GEAR AND CAUSE AN ACCIDENT THAT WILL KILL THEM AND ANOTHER PERSON. I HOPE THIS IS INVESTIGATED AND WILL HELP THE NEXT MAN. *TR

Summary

I HAVE A 2006 FORD FUSION THAT HAS DEVELOPED A TRANSMISSION PROBLEM. IT HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED AS A VALVE BODY DEFECT WITH A SERVICE BULLETIN DATING BACK TO 2001. I FIRST CONTACTED THE DEALERSHIP TO INVESTIGATE THE PROBLEM IN DECEMBER 2008, BUT THE TRANSMISSION DEPARTMENT WAS CLOSED (ON A SATURDAY). MY MILEAGE AT THAT TIME WAS 35129 (WELL WITHIN WARRANTY PERIOD). I WASN'T ABLE TO MAKE IT BACK UNTIL SEPT. OF '09 FOR EVALUATION, AND THEY JUST DID A SOFTWARE UPGRADE. BACK AGAIN WITH SAME PROBLEM IN NOV. '09 WHEN THEY INDICATED THE VALVE BODY FROM TSB DATED 08/24/01. IT HAS NEARLY CAUSED ME TO HAVE SEVERAL ACCIDENTS BECAUSE AT RANDOM TIMES, THE TRANSMISSION POPS INTO NEUTRAL WHETHER ON THE HIGHWAY, TURNING A CORNER, OR ACCELERATING - THEN POPS BACK INTO GEAR, CAUSING THE CAR TO BUCK VIOLENTLY. CARS BEHIND ME HAVE NEARLY RAMMED INTO MY CAR BECAUSE OF THIS SUDDEN FAILURE OF MY TRANSMISSION. I FEEL THIS SHOULD BE A RECALL AND CORRECTED BY FORD CORPORATE. THIS PROBLEM HAS OCCURRED ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS. I HAVE DOCUMENTED SOME OF THE MORE SEVER INCIDENCES. THE LATEST INCIDENCES WERE YESTERDAY, 3/30/10. I CALLED THE LOCAL DEALERSHIP AS WELL AS FORD CORPORATE, BUT THEY SAY THE PROBLEM IS NOT UNDER WARRANTY.

I OWN A 2006 FORD FUSION 4 DOOR SEDAN. UPON ARRIVING HOME FROM A SHORT TRIP, I ATTEMPTED TO SHUT MY CAR OFF. I SHIFTED INTO WHAT I THOUGHT WAS PARK AND SHUT THE CAR OFF. MY KEY WOULD NOT RELEASE FROM THE IGNITION. I ATTEMPTED TO SHIFT THE CAR INTO PARK AGAIN AND IT SHOWED IT WAS IN PARK. THE KEYS STILL WOULD NOT RELEASE FROM THE IGNITION. I FINALLY WENT INTO MY HOME AND LOOKED ONLINE. I FOUND ONLINE A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM AND A TEMPORARY SOLUTION. IT SEEMS THE DECORATIVE RING AROUND THE BUTTON ON THE SHIFTER KEEPS THE BUTTON FROM FULLY DISENGAGING. I WENT BACK OUT TO MY CAR AND TRIED TO SHIFT OUT OF PARK WITHOUT HITTING THE BUTTON AND WAS SUCCESSFUL AT WHICH TIME THE CAR WAS EASY TO ROLL. IF THE CAR WAS PARKED ON A SLOPE AND THE SHIFTER DID NOT FULLY ENGAGE IN PARK IT IS POSSIBLE THAT IT COULD POP INTO NEUTRAL AND ROLL AWAY. I ATTEMPTED TO CALL MY LOCAL DEALER AND WAS TOLD THAT THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT WAS CLOSED AND NOBODY WOULD BE ABLE TO HELP ME.

I OWN A 2006 FORD FUSION THAT STARTED HAVE A CLICKING NOISE WHILE DRIVING STRAIGHT OR MAKING RIGHT OR LEFT HAND TURNS OR EVEN BACKING UP. I TOOK INTO MY MECHANIC TO LOOK AT AND HE CALL TO TELL ME IT WAS A CRACKED FRAME, AND THAT HE LOCATED A SERVICE BULLETIN BY FORD WITH REFERENCE TO MY FUSION AND THE MILAN HAVING A CRACK IN THE FRAME AND THAT THEY MAKE A REPAIR KIT AVAILABLE THAT REQUIRES THE SUBFRAME TO BE DROPPED AND HOLES DRILL WITH BOLTS AND RIVETS ALONG WITH A PLATE TO FIX THE PROBLEM. I CHECK BOTH FORDS AND YOUR WEB SITE FOR A RECALL AND FOUND NOTHING. THESE CRACK CAN LEAD TO A FRAME FAILURE AND AN ACCIDENT WITH POSSIBLE INJURIES OR DEATH. *TR

ONE OF THE WELDS ON THE SUBFRAME OF MY 2006 FORD FUSION CRACKED. WHEN IT HAPPENED MY CAR HAD LESS THAN 50,000 MILES ON IT. I TOOK IT IN TO RODEO FORD WHO DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM AND IS NOW TRYING TO CHARGE ME $1500 TO HAVE IT WELDED BACK. THEY TRIED TO REASSURE ME HOWEVER THAT MY CAR WAS SAFE TO DRIVE. I CONTACTED FORD CUSTOMER CARE WHO TOLD ME THEY WOULD NOT WORK WITH ME TO FIX THE ISSUE. MY WARRANTY WAS UP IN JANUARY 2009 AND FORD CUSTOMER CARE TOLD ME THERE WERE NO OTHER WARRANTIES I COULD PURCHASE TO HELP WITH THE REPAIR. THIS IS OBVIOUSLY AN ISSUE WITH MANY 2006 FORD FUSIONS AND FORD THEMSELVES SHOULD MAKE THE REPAIRS AT NO COST TO THE CONSUMERS. THIS IS FORDS FAULTINESS, NOT THE CONSUMER'S AND SOMETHING REALLY NEEDS TO BE DONE ABOUT IT. *TR

Summary

I LOVE MY FUSION HOWEVER, AS A DESIGNER & A DETAILED ORIENTED PERSON I HAVE A FEW COMPLAINTS ABOUT MY CAR THAT I BELIEVE SHOULD BE FIXED OR AT LEAST SHOULD BE TAKEN CARE OF SINCE I HAVE LESS THAN 50,000 MILES ON IT. FIRST, I DON'T LIKE THE TILT IN THE CAR...VERY DIFFICULT TO USE IF YOU HAVE ARTHRITIS. I DON'T LIKE THAT THERE AREN'T ANY BACK SEAT LIGHTS FOR WHOMEVER IS BACK THERE. I HAD PROBLEMS WITH MY STEERING SHAKING & BROUGHT THE CAR IN TO THE DEALER...THEY ENDED UP TURNING THE ROTORS. THINGS WENT WELL FOR ABOUT A WEEK THEN IT WENT BACK TO THE SAME. THEY ENDED UP TURNING THEM AGAIN...NO CHARGE..BUT NO REAL EXPLANATION AS TO WHY IT WAS HAPPENING. ONE MONTH LATER IT HAPPENED AGAIN & THIS TIME WE DECIDED TO JUST BUY NEW ROTORS ON OUR OWN & REPLACE THE PADS TOO. THE INTERIOR DOOR HANDLE IN THE BACK SEAT BROKE & THE FINISH OFF THE DRIVERS INTERIOR DOOR IS BUBBLING TOO...THIS SHOULDN'T HAPPEN IN A 2 YEAR OLD CAR! NOW, THE OTHER DAY MY A/C DECIDED NOT TO BLOW COLD AIR ANYMORE & THE PART IS ON BACK ORDER UNTIL THE END OF JULY!! HOW CAN THIS BE WITH SUCH A POPULAR CAR & SUCH A NEW CAR. I REALLY LOVE THIS CAR BUT I FEEL THAT MY OLDER VEHICLES LASTED LONGER WITH FEWER PROBLEMS. I AM PAST MY WARRANTY SO WHATEVER GOES WRONG I HAVE TO GET HELP FROM MY HUSBAND & HIS MECHANIC FRIENDS IN ORDER TO SAVE SOME MONEY BECAUSE THE DEALER WANTS TO CHARGE 4X'S THE AMOUNT WHICH I UNDERSTAND THEY ARE TRYING TO MAKE A PROFIT BUT AT THE SAME TIME MOST PEOPLE CAN'T AFFORD SUCH PRICES. I AM STARTING TO THINK I SHOULD HAVE STAYED WITH CHEVY OR EVEN TRIED NISSAN OR TOYOTA. *TR

FORD IS MAKING IT DIFFICULT TO FOLLOW THROUGH AND I HAVE THE CAR BEING HELD SO IT CAN BE INSPECTED. I AM AFRAID THEY ARE DEFECTIVE AND WILL RESULT IN THE DEATH OF SOMEONE. I WAS FLOWN BY HELICOPTER WITH SEVERE HEAD INJURIES AND FROM THE PICTURES, YOU CAN SEE THE BLOOD SPOT WHERE MY HEAD CRACKED THE SIDE PANEL DIRECTLY BELOW WHERE THE AIRBAG SHOULD HAVE COME OUT.

I PURCHASED A 2006 FUSION ON 8-12-06 AFTER AN INITIAL TEST DRIVE. THE CAR APPEARED TO BE FREE FROM ANY COSMETIC DEFECTS. WHEN PICKING UP THE VEHICLE AFTER THE PAPERS WERE SIGNED. HOWEVER, THE MORE I DROVE THE CAR, THE MORE I NOTICED A DEFECT IN THE WINDSHIELD GLASS. I WAS NOT ABLE TO PUT MY FINGER ON THE PROBLEM UNTIL READING A POST HERE FROM ANOTHER FUSION OWNER. IT IS MOST NOTICEABLE WHEN MAKING A TURN IN THE VEHICLE, AS THE DEFECT IS MOST PRONOUNCED WHEN LOOKING THROUGH THE GLASS AT AN ANGLE, SUCH AS LOOKING TO THE RIGHT THROUGH THE PASSENGER SIDE OF THE GLASS. I ALSO SAT IN THE PASSENGER SIDE OF THE VEHICLE AND LOOKED THROUGH THE GLASS AT AN ANGLE ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE AND CAN SEE THE DEFECT THERE AS WELL. IT DOES NOT SEEM TO BE A PROBLEM WHEN LOOKING STRAIGHT AHEAD THROUGH THE GLASS. THE DEFECT IS A SERIES OF 'LINES' VERTICALLY THROUGHOUT THE GLASS SO THAT THE GLASS LOOKS WARPED. I HAVE NOT CONTACTED THE DEALERSHIP ABOUT THIS YET BUT WILL BRING IT TO THEIR ATTENTION WHEN THE FIRST SERVICE IS DUE. *JB
