The Car Stalls At Varied Speeds Which Is A Huge Safety Issue. I Owned A 2010 ford Fusion Previously With My Company Fleet Vehicle Program, And Had The Same Problem. I Brought The Car To The Dealership And It Was Fixed Without Question. At That Time I Was Unaware Of This Being Part Of A Bigger Problem. In The Fall Of 2011, I Purchased A Different 2010 ford Fusion From Our Fleet As It Was Being Turned In, And This Is The Vehicle That I Am Discussing In This Forum. It Only Has 30000 Miles On It, But Is 6 Months Out Of The 36 Month Bumper To Bumper Warranty. The Car Stalled Once, A Month Ago, And The Problem Seemed To Rectify Itself. Then Yesterday, 6/19/2013, It Stalled 6 Times. My 17 Year Old Daughter Drives The Car And Was Stuck In The Middle Of A Very Busy Intersection. For Almost One Minute, The Car Would Not Restart, But Finally Did, And She Was Able To Get Out Of The Intersection. As I Read The Forums, It Is Obvious To Me That This Is A Nationwide Problem, Looking Back, I’ve Had 2 Cars With The Identical Problem. The Service Men At The Dealership Know That The Problem Is Specific To The Throttlebody, Which Is Defective, And There Is Over A Week Backlog On The Parts As More And More Cars Are Having The Same Issue. This Is A Dangerous Problem, To Lose Power To A Vehicle In Motion And ford Is Aware Of This Issue, Yet They Are Taking No Steps In Addressing The Issue. It Is Going To Cost Me $600 To Have The Part Replaced, As It Is Outside The 3 Year Warrant, Yet ford Knows That This Was A Model Wide Issue With A Defective Car Part. I Am Disappointed And Angry That A Glaring Problem Such As This Is Not Being Addressed Due To ford Attempting To Let The Problem Hopefully Just Fade Away And Not Be Taken To Task Over This Issue. I Pray That The Nhtsa Will Step In, Right A Wrong, And In The Process Prevent A Tragic Accident Before It Becomes A Reality. *tr
