I Had Not Had Any Issues With My Car, But I Left My House To Drive My Daughter To Tumbling Which Was 7 Miles From My House. I Was About 3 Miles From My Home When A Warning Sound And The Lights On My Dashboard Stated Check Power Steering. I Assumed That I Needed Power Steering. I Arrived At Tumbling, Parked For An Hour. When I Started The Car A New Message Was On The Dash Stating Service Power Steering Now And Service Advance Autotrac. I Put The Car In Reverse And Backed Up, But When I Turned The Steering Wheel It Was Locked, I Could Barely Move The Wheel. I Was Blocking The Traffic In The Parking Lot And Had To Pull Forward And Park. I Turned The Car Off And On And Received The Same Message. Therefore I Was Stranded In The Parking Lot. We Took The Car To A ford Service Dept. They Told Us That This Is An Issue That They Have Been Having With fordfusions As Well As Other fords But There Was No Recall. I Paid For Them To Perform A Diagnostic Test The Results Were That They Would Have To Replace The Steering Panel For $1500 And The Part Was On Back Order, But First They Reset The Codes, And The Power Steering Warning Was Gone The Car Test Drove And Drove Home Fine. The Next Morning I Left To Take My Daughters To School And The Same Cycle Of Events Happened I Was Afraid To Turn The Car Off When I Dropped Them Off At School So That I Would Not Be Stranded. I Kept The Car On And Drove The Car To The Dealership Where I Purchased The Car Paid Again For A Test And Was Told The Same Thing. I Told Them To Repair The Car. I Called ford Co. And They Told Me That They Were Not Aware Of This Issue And Although I Saw Numerous Complaints On The Internet They Were Not True. Meanwhile My Car Is Ready And I Have To Come Up With 1500 For An Issue That ford Knows They Are Having Problems With. I Am Afraid My Car Will Have Problems Again, This Is A Safety Issue When It Comes To Steering. *tr

I Own A 2010fordfusion Se. Six Weeks Prior To November 13, 2013, The Vehicle Would Sporadically Shake Or Sometimes Jerk! On The Evening Of November 13th, I Was Driving A Short Distance From Home In The Dark. I Came To Complete Stop At A Very Busy Intersection And The Vehicle Began To Shake Violently Three Times And Then The Engine Stalled! I Was Stuck At A Right Turn Lane With No Place To Pull Over Or To Let Any Cars Go By! In Fact Many Drivers Behind Me Were Very Impatient Honking Their Horns And Squeezing By Around The Corner! As I Was Panicking I Noticed The Battery And Oil Light On And Did Not Noticed Any Other Idiot Lights On. I Pressed On The Accelerator And Could Not Move, I Noticed I Could Put The Car In Gear And Luckily I Was Able To Start The Vehicle! I Was Able Drive Around The Corner Into The Gas Station, And All Of A Sudden The Vehicle’s Transmission Jerked And Made A Loud “clunk” Noise While Accelerating Lightly, The Vehicle “surged” Thru The Gas Station, Finding Myself At A Fast Speed I Had To Slam On The Brakes! That Evening I Went Onto The Internet And Saw Hundreds Of Complaints On The “electronic Throttle Body!” All Of These Customers Had The Same Experience Or Very Similar To Mine! I Was Very Scared To Drive The Car Twenty Miles To A Local Dealership. Fortunately The Vehicle Made It There Without Stalling. The Technicians Ran A Test On The “electronic Throttle Body”and To My Surprise The Vehicle Passed With Flying Colors. Also One
Of The Technicians Took The Car Home To See If It Would Happen Again So The Extended Warranty Would Cover This Expense With A Rental Car! For The Safety Of Myself And Others The “electronic Throttle Body” Was Replaced At My Expense Of $430.00. I Knew The Problem Would Not Disappear Or Go Away Or Improve And Nobody’s Life Is Worth A Few Hundred Dollars! *tr

I Went To Pick Up My Car From The ford Dealership After Dropping It Off, Again, On Friday, 12/27 To Fix The Same Exact Issue I Brought It In For The Day Before. The Steering Got Incredibly Stiff And The “service Power Steering Now” Light Came On As Well As The “service Advancetrac” Light. The First Time They Replaced The Steering Rack. Second Time They Blamed The Wiring. I Brought The Car In Today 12/31 But They Were Closed So I Can’t Wait To See What They Are Going To Try To Fix When They Open Back Up On Jan 2nd. I Have Not Been Able To Drive This Car For Almost A Week Now And I Wont Be Able To Any Time Soon I Feel. *tr

While Driving Home On Highway At 50 Mph The Car Suddenly Alarmed Service Advancetrac And Power Steering Now. My Steering Wheel Locked On Me. Thank God It Didn’t Cause An Accident. I Called A ford Dealer They Suggested I Pull Over Try Turning The Car Off And Starting It Again To See If Message Would Disappear It Didn’t. They Told Me I Would Have To Bring It In To Be Serviced. Just For Them To Look At It It’s $130. When I Looked On Internet I Seen That There Has Been Multiple Complaints About This But No Recalls. I Also Seen That It Is Very Costly And The Problem Recurs. Why No Recalls Yet? *tr

I Parked My Car On A Slight Incline. I Got Out And Like I Have Done Many Times, Put My Car In Park. I Left The Engine Running And Was Out Getting My Dog Some Water, Placed The Water On The Deck And Turned To Get In My Car, I Heard This Pop Of A Sound And My Car Started Rolling Backward. It Stayed On This Good Road I Had Into My Garden, Going Backward, I Tried To Get In The Car And Stop It, But The Angle Of Entry And Speed Kept Me From Doing That. It Then Took A Path Off The Road And I Watched As It Vanished Into A Gully, About 8 To 12 Feet Deep. It Cost Me Approx $3800.00 To Repair, Plus Rental, Plus Wrecker, Plus Checking The Under Body And Tires, Wheels. I Was Told That The Gears Had Jumped Loose. It Was A Horror Show, Plus Costly, And I Was Very Lucky That It Went In The Gully, Instead Of The Yard Next To My Property Where 3 Kids Were Playing. I Have Heard Other Similar Stories, What Has Or Is Being Done To Correct This Problem?
