On September 15, 2011 I Was Driving My 5 Month Old 2011fordfusion Hybrid With 5700 Miles On It When A Brake Warning Light Came On And A Warning Tone Sounded In My Vehicle. I Pulled Over And Stopped The Vehicle. I Called Walker ford In Clearwater And They Said It Probably Was Only A Defective Rear Brake Light And Bring It In When You Have Time. I Restarted My Vehicle And The Warning Light And Tone Were Gone. I Continued Driving Home And When I Was Almost Home, The Brake Warning Light Came On Again And So Did The Warning Tone. But This Time I Noticed My Estimated Miles Per Gallon On The Onboard Computer System Was Going Up And Down And The Vehicle No Longer Went Into The Electric Hybrid Mode. I Called Walker ford And Told Them I Was Going To Bring The Vehicle In On The Morning Of September 16th. I Brought It In And All Day Long They Troubleshoot It And Walker ford Could Not Figure Out What Was Wrong With It. They Put A Call Into The ford Technician Hotline To Find Out What Was Wrong With The Vehicle. At The End Of The Day They Did Not Hear Back From The Hotline And I Needed A Vehicle To Get Home. Walker ford Wanted To Give My Vehicle Back To Me To Drive Home And Use Over The Weekend. I Refused Saying That The Manual Said To Bring The Vehicle In For Service For The Brake Warning Light And The Electric/hybrid System Not Working. Nothing In The Manual Said To Continue Driving The Vehicle. So Walker ford Finally Gave Me A Loaner To Drive. Monday September 19th They Got An Answer From The Hotline And It Said A Vacuum Hose/assembly Was Bad And They Put One On Order. The Next Day The Part Was Not Delivered But A Notice That The Part Was Not Available But Back Ordered And It Would Become Available Sometime Around October 14th. I Contacted ford Customer Service And Made A Complaint Case # [xxx]. Information Redacted Pursuant To The Freedom Of Information Act (foia), 5 U.s.c. 552(b)(6). *tr

The Fan Blower To The Air Condition Failed To Work After A Short Park. The Dealership Told Me The Wire And Resister Had Burned,did Not Know Which Happened First. I Was Told It Could Cause A Fire So The Parts Were Disconnected. Until New Parts Were Installed. My Concern Is This Vehicle Was Parked In My Garage And This Could Have Been A Much Bigger Problem . I Also Am Concerned That I Am Not The Only One. Why Should This Happen To A Car Less Than 2 Years Old. *tr

I Bought My Car On December, 2011. 1st Problem Was The Dashboard Turning Off For No Reason. The 2nd Problem Is Life Threatening. I Am Driving Down The Road And Out Of No Where The Dash Board Lights Up, The Readers Go Crazy, And My Car Will Decelerate To 25mph And Will Not Go Over That Speed. Every Time I Have Had To Pull Over And When I Do The Car Shakes. I Turned My Car Off And When I Turn It Back On Its Like It Never Happened. No Lights Stay On And The Car Drives Like A Champ. It Does It At Random Times, And Random Speeds. I Took The Car To A ford Dealership In May 2012 And They Could Not Find A Problem With It. This Happened 3 Times And In August I Took The Car In Twice, The First Time Nothing Was Found, The Second Time They Change The Throttle Body On It. Problem Fixed Right?? Not Even Close. In November It Did It Again. I Called The Dealer But They Could Not See My Car For A Few Days And Didn’t Have Any Loaner Vehicles. The Car Then Began To Randomly Jerk At A Stop Lights Or When I Changed Gears. This Week The Flare Up Happened Again But This Time The Car Jerked When I Put It In Drive And The Engine Light And Wrench Light Both Turned On. I Continued To Drive And Right When I Started Going Up A Hill The Dashboard Lit Up, The Readers Went Crazy And My Car Started Rolling Backwards. I Was Able To Break But When I Pushed On The Gas The Car Barely Crept Up The Hill. The Wrench Light Then Turned Off But The Engine Light Stayed On. The Next Morning I Took It To The Dealer. When I Took It In The Engine Light Was On But When They Checked It The Engine Light Was Off And There Were No Codes On The Computer. I Am Scared Of The Car I Am Driving. I Know The Car Has A Problem And So Does The Dealer But They Just Can’t Figure Out What The Problem Is. I Called ford But All They Said Was That They Were Working With The Dealer. I Am Paying For A Car I Can’t Drive. *tr

2011fordfusion -while Driving On The Interstate At 70 Mph, Vehicle Suddenly Lost Acceleration, Tachometer Started Going Up And Down, Traction Light Came On,fuel Gage Going Up And Down, A Lock Light Was Illuminated, Bells Were Going Off And Car Began To De-accelerate. When I Pulled The Car To The Shoulder Turned The Car Off And Back On The Problem Continued. I Immediately Drove To The ford Dealer Which Was Close By At The Time And Had The Manager View What Was Happening. He Pulled The Car Into The Shop, Shut Off The Engine And It Never Restarted. This Could Have Caused A Serious Accident If I Was Not Able To React As Quickly As I Did. The Car Has Only 37000 Miles. This Problem Has Been Intermittently Occurring In This Vehicle For A Year Now. The Car Is Not Safe! When Is ford Going To Recall This Car!!! *tr

I Bought This 2011fordfusion At 40,000 Miles And Since It Has Been At 45,000 Miles I Been Having Stalling And Idle Problems . I Thought I Was Going Crazy Until I Seen An Article In The News Today . My Car Has Stalled On The Hwy To Where On Numerous Occasions I Have Almost Been Hit. I Have Had To Pull Over And Restart It. I Also See The Wrench When It Happens. I Also Have Been Sitting Still At Lights To Where My Car Would Idle Up Real Fast. My Car Also Pops And Gets Stuck When I Change Gears. I Hate This Car. I Just Pray Something Gets Done Before Someone Really Gets Hurt Including Myself …. *tr

This Happened Sometime Back, However It Could Be Related To Your Current Investigations. When I Had Approx 1900 Miles On The Car And While I Was Going Around 70 Mph, The Car Went Into Limp Mode And I Lost All Throttle Control. After Nearly Getting Hit From Behind From A Truck (cause I Lost Speed), I Managed To Pull Over To Safety And Saw I Had No Throttle Response. I Turned Off The Car, And Then Turned It Back On To Find It Out It Wouldn’t Start. So I Turned It Off Once Again, Waited 20 Or So Seconds, And Turned The Car Back On And Proceeded To Work. Later On That Night, I Pulled The Codes Off The System And Kept Them As Pictures (p2104 And P2112) Just In Case The Codes Cleared (cold Cycle). Sure Enough I Go To The Dealer The Next Day, No Codes Found And There Is Nothing They (ford) Can Do. I Showed Them The Pictures, However I Was Still Turned Away. Later On At Around 7500 Miles, This Happened Again And This Time I Was Close Enough To The Dealer To Run The Codes. They Performed Tsb 11-4-23 On The Engine Throttle Body And Ecu, And Installed A New Wiring Harness. Little Did I Know At The Time, But This States That Under Rare Conditions The Engine Will Emit Those Codes While The Wipers Are On. *tr

Car Bucked Then Completely Died (in The Middle Of The Street)! Lights That Came On: Stop Safely Now, Wrench, Engine, Triangle With Exclamation Point. Took A Few Times To Start Back Up. Took It To The Dealer And They Said They Did Not Have A Code But Did Not Find Anything Wrong. A Few Days Later, It Happened Again. This Time In The Middle Of The Intersection! ( Same Codes) Brought It To Dealer Again, This Time Apparently They Found The Code. The Dealer Said Gas Was Going In The Wrong Place And Replaced A Valve. It Has Since Happened
More Than Five Times, All Happening At Less Than 5 Mph When Starting After A Stop. Currently With Another ford Dealership (given The Previous One Cracked The Windshield But Claimed It Was Already There, Not To Mention The Poor Service To The Car). This Latest Incident We Had The Car Towed. This Was At The Recommendation Of The ford Regional Representative Who Has Been Extremely Helpful. (by The Way, This fusion Is A Hybrid.) Currently Waiting For Diagnosis. *tr

As We Were Driving In The Freeway At About 70 Mph On April 7th 2013, The Car Lost Power And Stalled Out In The Middle Lane Of The Freeway. At That Exact Moment The Car Felt Like It Jerked Hard And Then Stalled And The Light With The Wrench Symbol Came On In The Dashboard. Then It Immediately Disappeared After Being On When The Car Jerked And Stalled. Manage To Put Hazzard Lights On And Make It Safely To The Freeway Shoulder Where The Car After A Couple Of Minutes Trying And Waiting Started Again As If Nothing Happened. After Turning The Car Off The Car Would Not Turn Back On And Sounded Like The Engine Was Struggling To Keep Up After The Car Was Jump Started. The Car Then Was Making Sounds In The Engine Bay And Managed To Make It To A Gas Station Couple Feet Away And The Car Died Again After Turning It Off To Refuel Once Again Had To Get The Car Jump Started. Car Once Again Started To Feel And Sound As If It Was Struggling To Stay Stable. Had The Car Towed The Next Morning To Local ford Dealership Where They Replaced The Battery And Install A New Throttle Box. Computer Code At Dealership Determined Cause Of Problem Was Due To Faulty Throttle Box. *tr

On The Morning Of February 7th 2013, I Noticed The Vehicle’s Acceleration And Deceleration Was Ridged And Jumpy. Prior To This Problem, The Vehicle Has Shut Off Randomly Approximately Three Times While In Drive And In Motion. This Prompted Me To Bring The Vehicle In For Maintenance At A ford Dealer Auto Center. They Determined The Power Takeoff Unit And Drive Shaft Were Faulty, Replaced Both Parts And Returned The Vehicle To Me On February 15th 2013. On March 18th 2013, The Vehicle Shut Off Again While Driving At Highway Speeds On A Busy Road, Forcing Me To Navigate Cautiously To A Shoulder. The Engine Light And Wrench Light Were Illuminated This Time. I Shut The Vehicle Off, Waited 5 Minutes, And Restarted. The Engine Light Remained On And The Vehicle Was Drivable. I Quickly Returned The Vehicle To The Previous ford Auto Center, In Which They Discovered The Throttle Body Was Faulty. They Replaced The Throttle Body And Returned The Car To Me On March 21st 2013. On March 22nd 2013, The Engine Cover Fell Off While The Car Was In Motion, I Immediately Returned Vehicle To The Previous ford Auto Center, They Replaced With New Engine Cover. As Of Today, The Vehicle Is Again Showing Hesitation At Acceleration And Deceleration, Rpm Dash Meter Needle Bounces Plus Minus 500rpms During Acceleration And Deceleration. Breaking Is Not Smooth Or Instant, The Vehicle Tends To Jump During Breaking. At Coasting Speeds, The Vehicle Also Jumps. These Are Similar Problems That Occurred Prior To The Vehicle Spontaneously Shutting Off. This Problem Is Alarming And An Extreme Safety Hazard To Yourself And Others Around You, Notably At High Highway Speeds. ford Has Been Presented With The Issue And Has Claimed That The Issues Are All Unrelated, Even Though The Vehicle Shuts Off Each Time. I Am Concerned For My Safety And The Safety Of Others Driving This Model, 2011fordfusion Sel Awd.

I Was Driving On The Freeway At 65mph During Heavy Afternoon Traffic When My Car All Of A Sudden Died And I Had To Quickly Veer Off To The Service Lane Dodging Honking, Angry Drivers Nearly Almost Getting Hit By One. Luckily An Accident Was Diverted By Smart Driving By Me. After Coasting To A Stop, I Turned The Car Off And Turned It Back On. Thinking It Was A Minor Hiccup, I Drove Back Onto The Road.

2011fusion W/ 3.0 Liter 6cyl. While Traveling At Approximately 50 Mph The Engine Suddenly Bogged Down. I Pressed The Gas Pedal And Nothing Happened. I Was Able To Pull Over To The Side And The Engine Was Still Running. A Wrench Light Came On. I Put The Car In Park And Tried The Gas Pedal Again With No Response. I Turned The Engine Off, Waited A Few Seconds, Then Turned It Back On. I Was Able To Drive Home, Then To The ford ark> Dealership With No Incident. I Was Told That The Problem Was The Throttle Body Which Is On National Back Order. ford Would Not Cover The Repair Even Though Car Was Just Over The Warranty Mileage Limit. I Found Out That The Nhtsa Started An Investigation On This Issue In February 2013 And ford Is Aware Of The Multiple Complaints Of This Same Problem. I Was Lucky No Truck Was Behind Me Since My Car Slowed Quickly And Suddenly With No Warning. The Internet Is Filled With Complaints Of This Same Issue.

I Was Driving My 2011fordfusion S With A V4 Engine On 07/03/2013 At Approximately 19:15 In The Evening. I Was Traveling On A Slight Incline On A Two-lane Road At A Speed Of Approximately 50 M.p.h. When All Of The Sudden The Car Stalled And Would Not Longer Accelerate. I Pulled Off The Road And The Car Began To Shake And The Transmission Slipped While Shifting Down. I Turned Off The Car And Then Turned It On Again. I Drove To My Destination 2 Hours Away Without Further Incident. I Drove The Car A Second Time And The Incident Did Not Recur. The Third Time I Drove The Car After The First Incident, The Problem Occurred Again, Which Was On 07/05/2013 At Approximately 17:00. It Occurred In The Middle Of An Interstate And I Had To Pull To The Side Of The Road By Cutting Across Traffic Without The Ability To Accelerate!!! I Took The Car To A ford Dealer And They Diagnosed The Problem As A Faulty Throttle Control. I Had To Pay For The Repair Out Of Pocket Because The Warranty Expired At 36,000 Miles (my Car Has 38000 Miles). This Is A Serious Public Safety Concern. I Have Read That 2010 fordfusions Also Have A History Of The Same Problem At About 2-3 Years After Purchase. I Am Grateful To Have Avoided A Crash, But One Could Easily Find Themselves In A Situation Where They Cannot Accelerate Because Of This Problem And End Up Seriously Injured Or Dead Because Of A Crash That It Could Cause. The Car Suddenly Stops Accelerating And This Happens Apparently At Random, Usually Within 10-15 Minutes Of Turning The Car On. *tr

While Driving On A Highway With A Fair Amount Of Traffic The Gas Pedal Quit Working Then My Car Stalled Out. This All Happened Very Quickly. I Was Able To Pull To Side. I Restarted The Car Merged Back On Highway And In 1/4 To 1/2 Mile It Did It Again. Once Again I Was Able To Restart It And Merged Back Into Traffic Hoping To Make It To The Next Exit, But It Did It Again In Less Then 1/4 Mile. I Restarted It And Stayed On The Side Of Highway. It Went Into Limp Mode And I Was Able To Get To A Gas Station At Next Exit. The Car Had Stalled Out A Month Or So Prior
But Restarted And No Other Issues Until This Reported Event. Also As We Researched On Line My Car Had The Surges Of Power Or Lack Thereof As Mentioned On Line.

I Wanted To Contact You About A Serious Safety Issue In My 2011fordfusion. I Took It In For Service In January 2013 And Was Told That The Throttle Body Needed Replaced After My Car Stalled A Few Times. I Was Told Then The Throttle Body Was Backordered. I Tried Again In June And Was Told That This Is A Common Problem And They Are Still Backordered. After That, I Was Told That I Could Simply Take The Key Out And Put It Back In After It Stalled And It Would Be Fine. And They Were Backordered From ford. On July 11th, The Car Stalled At The Corner Of I-70 And I-270 In Columbus While Traveling At 65mph. I Pulled Off To The Side Of The Road And Reset The Car. While Trying To Get Off The Road, I Went Off The Road To Avoid Any Other Cars As Their Was Construction And No Shoulder. After Restarting It, I Got Back Onto The Road And The Car Stalled And I Wasn’t Able To Make It Back Off The Road And Nearly Was Hit By A Semi From Behind. The Car Stalled A Minimum Of Ten Times During Rush Hour. *tr

While Driving In Heavy Traffic On Interstate, Engine Began To Loose Power And As My Speed Decreased I Pulled Off The Highway And Though Engine Remained Running And Intermittently Coughed Or Vibrated, I Turned The Ignition Off And Called For A Tow Truck. During Slow Down, Dash Warning Lights Displayed A Wrench And Also Possibly A Wiggly Line Symbols. While Driving Before Trouble Started I Attempted To Cut Back My Speed By Pressing The Minus Set Button On The Cruise Control Several Times, But Not Consecutively. Incident Occurred Shortly After I Decreased My Speed With Above Action. This Incident Left Us In A Dangerous Spot In The Breakdown Lane While High Speed Heavy Traffic Passed Close By Unabated.

While Driving My Car To Work, I Was On The Highway And The Car Suddenly Lost Power And The Engine Stalled. I Had To Pull Over Twice On The Way To Work While Navigating Interstate Traffic. My Car Engine Stalled And I Had To Pull Over – I Took It To The Dealer On Friday And They Took Care Of It Really Fast, But It Appears That They Have Knowledge Of It Happening Alot. This Is A Major Safety Issue For Me, As I Have To Travel Interstate Every Day.. It Is Unnerving That When Driving 55-65 Mph, The Wrench Light Comes On And The Accelerator Pedal Becomes Unresponsive. The Engine Was Turned Off And Upon Restarting, Resumed Normally. Just A Very Basic Google Search, It Seems That This Is A Very Common Problem And Need A Recall Notice. *tr

My Wife Was Driving Her Car When The Check Engine Light Came On, It Reduced Engine Power And Would Not Accelerate. She Turned It Off, Then Restarted It. She Drove Home With No Further Incident. This Was June 1st. It Happened A Few More Time Through June And July And We Had A Competent Mechanic Clean The Throttle Body After The Code He Scanned Said Throttle Body Was Stuck Closed/stuck Open. This Did Not Fix The Problem. On The Way Home From Dinner With My Family On August 3, We Made A Turn Across Two Lanes Of Traffic. In The Middle Of The Turn, The Wrench Light Came On, Car Lost Power, And We Were Essentially Dead In The Water While Making A Turn. The Vehicle Coming Down The Lane Happened To See Us In The Middle Of The Road. Had They Not Braked, We Would Have Been T-boned. It Happened The Next Day On The Interstate. Not Very Confidence Inspiring To Travel At 70mph, Then Have Your Car Not Go Over 900 Rpm. Look For A Shoulder Very Quickly. In All Instances, Car Goes To Reduced Engine Power (which Limits It To 900 Rpm). At A Stop Light, The Idle Is Very Erratic Going From 1000 Rpm Down To About 400. *tr

Went To Start Car And It Would Not Start. ford Roadside Towed It The Next Day. After Trying Various Things For 3 Weeks ford Engineering Called To Tell Me It Was Due To A Lightning Strike. Insurance Believes It Is A Warranty Claim As The Car Is Still Under Warranty; ford Will Not Honor This As A Warranty Claim. No One At ford Has Been Able To Give Me A Cost For Repairs Already Attempted Or For Further Repairs To Make The Car Work Normally Again. I Feel There Is A Deeper electrical Issue With The Car, But ford Is Claiming There Is Nothing In The Car That Could Supply This Kind Of Electricity To Fry Several Modules, Fuses, And Light Bulbs.

I Was Driving With My Daughters In The Car In The Middle Lane Of A 3 Lane Highway. I Was Traveling The Speed Limit, At Or Around 55 Mph, When All Of A Sudden The Car Went Limp. There Was No Acceleration And The Car Immediately Began To Coast. A Wrench Light And The Engine Light Went On. With No Ability To Speed Up, I Had To Navigate Through Two Lanes Of High Speed Traffic With A Paralyzed Car To Get Me And My Children To Safety. Luckily, I Was Able To Do So. The Dealership Informed Me That This Doesn’t Happen Very Often, And That Unfortunately, This Repair Would Not Be Covered Under The Power Train. They Ordered And Replaced The Throttle Body. Upon Investigating This Issue Online, I Was Shocked To Discover That This Problem Is So Prevalent. The Fact That ford Is Covering This Up And Pushing The Costs On To Its Customers Is Frustrating (more Than $1300 In My Case), But The Fact That They Are Willing To Risk The Lives Of These Very Same Customers Is Downright Disturbing. There Should Be An Immediate Recall On All The Cars Affected By This Throttle Body Issue, As Well As A Full Reimbursement For All Those Who Have Had To Suffer Through This Already. *tr

The Engine Shook Violently. The Wrench Light And Check Engine Light Suddenly Appeared. The Speed Of The Car Went From 45 Mph To 0 In An Instant. Then The Entire Car Powered Off. I Managed To Pull Over To The Shoulder As This Happened And Not Being Able To Accelerate At All. I Turned The Car On Again With Keys In Ignition. Started To Drive And The Same Series Of Events Happened Again And My Car Completely Powered Off. I Got My Car Towed To ford Malcolm Cunningham On 8/26/13. They Confirmed It Was The Throttle Body That Caused The Issues. I Purchased Extended Warranty On My Car Which Only Covered The Actual Part And Not The Labor To Replace The Throttle Body. The Dealership Service Rep, [xxx], Said That They Recommended I Also Flush The Engine Because They Have Seen This Is Related To The Throttle Body Issue. She Also Said The Throttle Body Issue Is A Common Problem With fusions And Escapes, As She Had Another Person In There For The Same Issue On An Escape. ford Needs To Realize This Is Extremely Unsafe And Issue A Recall Asap!

I Have Been Sensing A Surge In Engine Power For Se
veral Months In My 2011fusion. I Suspected A Throttle Body Problem And Googled For Information. I Found All Of The Information On The Nhtsa Website About Throttle Body Problems For This Car As Well As Information In Other Forums. It Was A Good Thing As I Was Prepared For What Happened Today. I Had Just Left My House When The Dreaded (and Expected) Loss Of Engine Power With The Wrench Light Being Illuminated. I Experienced The Same Symptoms Reported By So Many Complaints Logged For This Issue: Loss Of Power, Rough Idle, Just Enough Power To Barely Move The Car, Certainly Not Enough To Limp Anywhere, Much Less Home, Even Though The Engine Was In “limp Home” Mode. I Had My Code Scanner With Me And Was Able To Retrieve The P2111 (throttle Stuck Open) Code Before I Restarted The Car To Restore Full Power. This Only Worked Enough To Get The Car Turned Around When Limp Home Was Triggered Again. I Restarted Again And Was Able To Get Within A Block Of My House When Limp Home Triggered Once More. The Third Time I Was Able To Get To My House. I Called The Dealer And Then Roadside Assistance To Get My Car Towed To The Local ford Dealer After Verifying That They Had A Throttle Body In Stock. The Car Was Towed There And A Defective Throttle Body Was Diagnosed And Replaced. This Is Not A Case Of If The Failure Will Happen, But Rather When. I Was Fully Expecting It Any Day And Sure Enough, It Happened. I Was Extremely Fortunate As I Was Less Than A Mile From Home, Knew What To Expect And How To Deal With It, And My Car Was Still In Warranty, But Only By 1,806 Miles! Any Other Situation Would Have Resulted In Me Being In A Very Dangerous Predicament With A Car That Was Basically Dead In The Water. I Was Almost To The Point Of Purchasing A New Throttle Body On My Own In The Interest Of Being Proactive Rather Than Being Stranded. *tr

On September 15, 2013 I Was Driving On A Major Surface Street At Approximately 35 Miles Per Hour When The Car Just Stopped Working. Completely Powerless. I Saw Two Lights On The Dashboard: The Battery And The Oil. There May Have Been More But I Was More Focused On Safety And Oncoming Traffic Than The Lights On The Dash. I Decided Not To Take A Chance Of Getting Rear Ended (injured Or Killed) So At The First Big Break In Traffic I Safely Exited The Vehicle And Walked Over To The Sidewalk (one Lane Over). A Local Apartment Resident Saw The Incident And Grabbed A Safety Cone To Put Behind My Car As A Warning. Thankfully There Were No Accidents But There Were Some Close Calls And Last Minute Lane Changes As Drivers Came Upon My Car. I Called ford Roadside Assistance And They Sent A Tow Truck To Get The Vehicle. It Started Up Perfectly For The Driver, But I Had It Towed Anyway. It Has Been At The Dealer For Two Days. They Have Been Unable To Duplicate The Situation And Have Received No “codes” To Indicate A Problem With The Vehicle. They Have Called ford To Ask For Assistance And ford Has Asked Them Questions Regarding Lights Going On, My Speed At The Time Of The Incident, How Far I Had Been Driving The Car Before The Incident, Etc. This Is The Second Time I Have Had A Problem With My 2011fusion Completely Failing. The First Time Was In September 2012 When The Throttle Failed On The Freeway. It Was Supposedly Fixed. This Time The Lost Of Power Did Not Feel Like The Throttle. It Just Stopped Working. Had Power. Didn’t Have Power. I Am Extremely Concerned That The Dealer Will Find Nothing Wrong With The Vehicle And It Will Be Returned To Me In An Unsafe Condition. Others Have Reported This And Similar Issues. Please Get These Vehicles Recalled Before Someone Loses A Life.

Lucky Me, I Happened To Have Two Of These Failed Designed Vehicles. My Wife Has A 2010 That Developed Throttle Body Problems At 35000 Miles And Now Mine At 87500 Miles. The 2010 Left Her Stranded With Zero Engine Power, In The Middle Of Busy Roads A Total Of Two Times Before The Dealership (palm Coast ford) On The Third Visit Decided That Just Cleaning And Spraying Down The Failing Hardware Didn’t Cut It And Finally Put A New One On, Luckily Still Under Warranty. The Mechanic Did However Say That This Is A Common Occurrence For These ford Products And That The Same Thing Would Probably Happen To The Throttle Body He Just Put On. Why ford Did Not Fix The Problem Sooner At That Point In Time? My Guess, Not Enough People Had A Direct Link To Their Death From Car Accidents At That Point In Time! 20,000 Miles Later So Far No Other Problems. Now My 2011fusion Is A Manual 6 Speed. When My Throttle Body Failed This Morning While Going To Work I Noticed That While In Cruise Control The Speed Was Pulsing Down And Up Around Two Mph. This Would Happen For A Short Time And Then Stop And Be Functioning Properly For A While And Then Do It Again. Finally At A Light I Noticed The Idle Up And Down And After Accelerating To 60 It Suddenly Went To Idle Of 900 Rpm. No Power From The Engine. You Could Floor It And Nothing. Well Once Again Like Many Others That Have Had The Same ford Failure Experience I Almost Was Hit By Another Vehicle Because Of No Where To Pull Over. I Will Purchase The Part And Replace It Myself. I Thought I Would Give ford A Try Again From Years Ago When I Had A Lynx That Caught On Fire, And A Taurus Sho With A Poorly Engineered Clutch Design, But They Failed Me Again. *tr

I Was Driving On The Highway At About 65mph, I Began To Exit And Came Down To 40. Once I Started To Slow Down I Felt The Car Tug, It Was Odd Because It Had Never Done That Before But I Finished Exiting And Tried To Pick Up Speed Again But Couldn’t. The Rpm Went Down, Wrench Signal Came Out On Dash, I Pushed On The Gas And Nothing, It Did Not Have Anymore Power. Luckily There Were Many Businesses To My Right To Where I Was Able To Park Safely, If I Was Still On The Highway While This Happened I Could Have Easily Been Rear Ended Or Worse Because The Car Slowed On Its Own And I Was Unable To Control The Gas. As I Pulled Over The Car Began To Shake, I Turned It Off Quickly And Called For Help. A Relative Came To My Aid To Check It Out But We Couldn’t Find Anything Visible, We Cautiously Turned The Vehicle Back On And The Wrench Signal Turned Off, No More Shaking, It Was Odd That It Just Completely Lost Power A Few Minutes Prior And Now It Was Back To Normal. We Drove It Around The Parking Lot To Test It, Didn’t Want To Leave It Behind Due To The Area And Possibility Of Theft, Also Could Not Afford A Wrecker To Pick It Up. I Ended Up Heading Back Home With My Relative Behind Me. It Was Very Uncomfortable, I’m So Glad It Was Myself And Not My Wife And Kids As This Is Her Vehicle. I Know They Are Numerous Knows Issues On The Throttle Body With This Vehicle. It Is Sad That It Has Not Been Recalled Yet, Please Take A Stand And Do Not Wait Until Somebody Is Seriously Injured Or Worse. *tr

The Error Occurred As I Was Driving
On A Major 8-lane Highway. I Was About A Quarter-mile From My Exit (after Being On The Highway For 60 Miles) When I Felt A “clunk” And An Orange-lit Wrench Appeared On My Dash. As I Turned Onto The Exit Ramp, I Slowed To A Stop At A Stop-light, Waiting To Turn Left. While The Brake Was Depressed, The Car Was Attempting To Move Forward Very Abruptly, As Part Of It’s “limp Home” Feature. When The Light Turned Green, I Released The Brake And Attempted To Accelerate Through The Intersection, But Pressing The Gas Pedal Produced No Response From The Car. After Limping Through The Intersection, I Shifted The Car Into Park And Turned The Engine Off. After Waiting 10-15 Seconds, I Restarted The Car And The Throttle Issue And Dash Light Were Both Gone. I Have Since Driven ~100 Miles Without Seeing The Issue Re-appear. *tr

I Was Driving Downtown And Next Thing I Know My Wrench Light Comes On And I Lose All Power To My fordfusion. I Was Scared Because I Didn’t Know What Was Going On. I Couldn’t Do Anything Until I Pulled Off The Road And Shut My Car Off And Restarted It. This Problem Has Happened To Me Multiple Times Within The Past 3 Weeks. I Would Have To Say Its Happened At Least 15 Times In Those 3 Weeks. I Am Starting To Get Annoyed With This Problem Because I Took The Car To The Dealership And They Constantly Tell Me Nothing Is Wrong With My Car, Yet I Know There Is Definitely Something Wrong. The Problem Happened Again On 11/26/2013 And When It Did My Check Engine Light Came On With The Wrench Light So I Took It To Autozone For Them To Check The Engine Light Code And The Code Was P2111 And The Description It Gave Was That The Throttle Actuator Control System Was Stuck Open. I Now Have Proof To Take To The ford Dealership That Something Is Wrong With The Car. They Better Fix This Problem! *tr

Battery Goes Dead After Sitting A Few Days. Possible Sign Of Electric Throttle Body Failure.!!??? Battery Replaced Twice In 4 Months, Charges Normally. While Looking For Possible electrical Problems Associated With The 2011fusion (11k Miles) I Discovered There Is Many, Many People Complaining Of Throttle Body Failure. I Went To The Local Dealer And Called ford And Asked Them To Replace The Throttle Body And Trace The electrical Problem. I Was Told That They Would Only Honor Their “customer Satisfaction Program” Concerning The Throttle Body If It Fails!!!!!! I Explained That I Was Afraid To Drive The Vehicle And If They Had An Updated Throttle Body And “limp Home” Update They Should Install It And Make Corrections. A Call To ford And They Refused To Fix The Potentially Deadly Problem. So What Recourse Is There?? My fusion And F-350 Are Both Headed For Trade At A No Nonsense Dealer. Lacrosse And Silverado, Here I Come!!!!!!! I Suggest You Do Something Similar. *tr

Suddenly, The Car Accelerated, Catching Her By Surprise She Went Through The Intersection And Was Narrowly Missed By Two Oncoming Cars. She Told Me Later That It Happened A Second Time On The Freeway (she Was On Her Way Home) But Was Not In Immediate Danger When It Occurred. We Have Traveled These Streets Several Times. Had Just Left The Restaurant Where We Had Lunch….was Riding My Bicycle Home And Watched Her Go Through The Intersection….very Scary!! Note: The Throttle Positioner Was Replaced On This Vehicle A Couple Months Ago. It Had Failed To 5mph. Villa ford In Orange Ca Did The Repair.

While Driving Our Car, My Wife (along With My 9 Month Old Baby Girl) Experienced A Sudden Loss Of Power And Shaking Engine. The Car Was Not Drivable So She Pulled Onto A Side Street And Parked The Car, Leaving Them Stranded. No Engine Warning Lights Ever Came On. This Is Exactly As Described (minus The Lack Of Check Engine Light) In The “ford Customer Satisfaction Program 13n03″ Letter That We Received A Few Months Ago. This Is An Intermittent Problem, So We Were Able To Take The Car In To The ford Dealer. Our Local ford Dealer Was Not Able To Pull A Code As The Check Engine Light Never Came On. The Dealer, And ford Customer Service, Refuse To Replace The Throttle Body Until The Code For Malfunctioning Throttle Body Is Read. My Wife And Infant Daughter Must Now Drive Around (twice A Day, 5 Days A Week) Waiting For It To Fail Again, And Take The Car To The Dealer At The Time Of Malfunction. This Is A Major Safety Concern As The Car Will Barely Move And Shakes So Badly. It Should Not Be Driven Across The City To The Dealership In This Condition, Especially With A Baby In The Car. ford Needs To Recall These Parts And Replace Them All To Stop Putting Customers In Danger With Cars That Barely Move. As For The “customer Satisfaction Program”? Not Feeling Very Satisfied At All… *tr

Vehicle Had To Be Pushed Onto A Side Road. A Similar Incident Occurred In July 2013 But The Vehicle Was In The Garage At The Time So It Wasn’t A Safety Issue. At That Time The Dealer Installed A New Battery Since The Original Had So Much Corrosion That It Ate Away At The Positive Battery Post.

While Driving Along The Highway My Gauges On The Instrument Panel Went Out Momentarily, And Then Came Back On With The Message “service Advancetrac.” I Didn’t Think Much About It Because It Went Away When I Turned My Car Off And Back On. A Couple Weeks Later (starting June 16th) The Instrument Panel Kept Going Out Every Time I Drove The Vehicle, And Multiple Messages Came Up In The Message Center About Getting My Brake System Checked And All Four Tire Pressures Were Low. Along With These Other Message Center Malfunctions, The Anti-theft Security System Was Malfunctioning And Not Recognizing Either Key I Have For The Car. A Couple Of Times It Took 20 Minutes Of Trying And Hoping To Get The Vehicle To Recognize The Key. I Took It In To The Dealership, And Now I Have To Pay $2000 To Get My Power Steering Module Replaced. I Am Completely Disappointed That My 2011ford Needs To Have Its Power Steering Replaced At Not Even 60000 Miles.

Driving At City Speeds And The Power Steering Completely Fails. Turn The Vehicle Off And Then On Again And It Fixes The Problem. Drive Some More And A Few Days Later, It Happens Again. A Few Days Later, It Completely Goes. Take The Car To The Local ford Dealer And Am Charged $1832.35 For A New Rack And Pinion. Ladies And Gentlemen, A Rack And Pinion Won’t Fix Itself If You Turn The Car On And Off. I Did Some Research On This Problem On Line At fordfusionforum.com. It Seems To Be An Abs Module, Not The Rack And Pinion. Called ford Today And They Said No Reimbursement Was Possible. A New Rack And Pinion For A Car With Only 21 Thousand Miles On It? Crazy.

After Restarting The Vehicle, I Managed To Get Home And Drive The Car For Several Days Without Issue. A Quick Internet Search Led Me To Suspect The Throttle Body. On Abou
