6/14/12 Car Was Low On fuel, But Not On Empty And Message Indicated 32 Miles To E. Driving Up Hill Car Lost Power, Did Not Die, Moved Very Slowly. Able To Get Off Street Into Parking Lot Of Restaurant. Car Seemed To Regain Power, So Tried To Pull Back On Street Going Down Hill, But At Edge Of Lot, I Realized The Brakes Were Not Responding. I Managed To Avoid Car Coming And Was Able Get Back Into The Parking Lot As Pulling Into Parking Spot Now Slight Surge Of Speed But Still No Brakes And Hit Restaurant’s Sign. Took Car To Dealer, Could Not Duplicate Problem And Blamed It All On Low fuel. On 6/20 This Time With Tank Almost Full. Had Same Problem, Car Suddenly Had No Power, But Did Not Die. I Pulled Over And Turned It Off And Waited Several Minutes. When Restarted Went About Four Miles And Happened Again. Stopped, Turned Off, Restarted And Went A Little Further, But Now Check Engine Light On. Fortunately, Both Times Not Going 60 Miles On The Highway And Suddenly No Power Had Towed To Dealer And This Time, Replaced The Throttle Body. Said It Was An Updated Version. If They Know There Is A Problem And Have An Updated Version, Why Is There No Recall? I Think This Could Be Very Dangerous. *jb

While Driving On The Freeway, The Engine Stalled. A Wrench Symbol Came On The Dashboard. The Car Started Lurching Forward And Was Nearly Hit By Two Other Vehicles From The Rear. I Was Able To Stop. I Turned Off The Engine And After A Few Tries, The Car Started Up Again. This Has Occurred At Least Another 20 Times Since Then. I’ve Spoken With ford Over The Phone Repeatedly And Explained That There Are Numerous Web Sites Discussing This As A Throttle Body Problem. But ford Refuses To Acknowledge The Problem And Have Told Me That They’re Not Even Sure If It Would Be Covered Under The Power Train Warranty. *tr

On My Way Home On A 5 Lane Road, I Was Cruising At About 45 Mph In Fairly Heavy Traffic And Experienced Throttle Body Failure. Without Warning, The Wrench Light Came On And I Had No Throttle Response Whatsoever And To Make Matters Worse Was On An Incline Which Made It Even Harder To Get Pulled Over As I Lost Speed Quickly. I Turned Onto A Side Street, Barely Avoiding A Rear End Collision. My Car Slowed To A Crawl And I Proceeded To Put It Into Park And Turn Off The Engine. After Re-starting The Engine, The Wrench Light Was Gone And There Was No Indication That There Was Anything Wrong With The Vehicle. *tr

My Wife Was Driving Vehicle At About 65 Mph In Morning Rush Hour Traffic. While Traveling Yellow Wrench Light Came On And Vehicle Slowed Down While Traveling In The Far Left Lane (fast Lane). Had To Safely Get The Car To Side Of The Road As It Coasted While Traffic Still Maintained Their Normal Speed. After Removing Key And Letting Vehicle Sit For A Couple Minutes, Put Key Back In Ignition And Started The Vehicle Back Up. Proceeded With No Issues. Called Dealership And Made An Appointment For 7/1/2013. Was Told That There Were No Codes And Could Not Get Vehicle To Perform Our Stated Issue. Was Told It May Be The Throttle Body And That They Would Order One (we Are Looking At The Minimum A Two Week Wait). And That They Would Not Guarantee That This Would Fix The Problem Because There Were No Codes For Them To Go Off Of. It Should Be Noted That Our Extended Service Contract Does Not Cover This And That We Would Be Looking At Around A $400.00 Repair. If We Would Of Had Preferred Service Plan That It Would Of Been Covered (imagine That!). So Today My Wife Calls Me Again To Tell Me She Is On The Side Of The Highway Because The Issue Happened Again! And On Top Of This Issue She Now Had A Flat Tire Probably Due To Having To Coast The Vehicle To The Side Of The Highway. We Met Up And Changed Vehicles. I Proceeded To Drive The Vehicle Back To Work, But Never Made It Due To The Vehicle Not Wanting To Operate And Yellow Wrench Coming On Along With Check Engine Light. Had Vehicle Towed Back To Dealership Where They Offered A Loaner Car While We Wait For Part To Arrive With No Estimated Eta? A Huge Safety Concern That ford Seems To Not Care About And Has A Casual “we Will Get To It, When We Get To It” Mentality”!?!? *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. Note: I Am A Person Without Much Mechanical Knowledge And This Was An Extremely Unsettling Event. I Do A Lot Of Highway Driving In My Work Including Rush Hour. I Am Well Aware That My Life Could Have Easily Ended That Day Or Been Severely Changed. Please Address This Before Someone’s Life Is Ended Or Severely Changed!! *tr

Car Stalls While Driving Down The Road, Pull Over And It Starts Back Up. It Has Done This 3 Times In The Last Week. Will Be Taking It To The ford Dealer Monday. Did Online Searches And Found This Is A Common Problem With ford fusion And It Points To The Throttle Body Or Electronic Module That Controls The Throttle Body. This Should Be Recalled By ford – Very Scary And Dangerous For The Driver Of The Vehicle. *tr

On Saturday, I Was Driving Out From A Complex Making A Left Turn Into Traffic When My Vehicle Abruptly Slammed Stopped At A Green Light. I Put On My Hazards And Noticed A Wrench Signal Popped On. I Put The Car In Park And Turned The Vehicle Off, Then Started It Back. The Vehicle Turned On Again. I Was Lucky I Was Not Rear-ended. I Drove Home And Decided Not To Drive The Car Until I Took It To Nearest Dealer. Monday Morning, I Got Into Vehicle Headed To The Dealer And Again Driving Out Of My Complex, The Code Popped On, Vehicle Sputtered And Stopped. I Turned It Off Then On Again. It Started And I Headed To The Dealer Close By With Hazards On. My Vehicle Was Diagnosed Needing Throttle Body Totaling $585.00. Mind You My Vehicle Is Two Years Old. *tr

On 8/7/13 I Was Driving My Car To Work In My Apartment Complex (approx. 5 Mph) My Car Stopped Responding To The Gas Pedal And Started “shaking” Erratically. A Small Tool/wrench Light Appeared On My Dash. I Pulled Over And Turned The Car Off. Restarted Several Minutes Later And Was Able To Drive With No Problems Until On The Way Home. I Didn’t Drive It Again Until 8/9/13 To The Mechanic. It Started And Drove Fine, Until 15 Minutes After Being On The Interstate (which I Had To Get On To Get To The Mechanic) The Car Stopped Responding To The Gas Pedal And Seems To Stay At The Same Speed For About A Minute (approx. 60 Mph). Finally The Car Started To Slow Down And Started Shaking ( Like It Was Out Of Gas But I Still 1/2 Tank). I Had To Pull Over Immediately On The Very Busy Interstate Because The Car Was Shaking And Didn’t Seem To Respond To The Gas Pedal. I Let The Car Sit For Several Minutes And Tried To Start Driving On The Shoulder But The Car Started Shaking Again. I Decided To Try One More Time Before Calling A Tow Truck Because It Was A Very Dangerous Situation (and I Had My 11 Months Old Son In The Car) Trying To Merge Back On The Freeway With A Car That Didn’t Want To Accelerate And Was Shaking. I Tried Again And Was Able To Successfully Pull Back Onto The Interstate. Once I Was Able To Get Off, I Took Side Streets And Had To Stop The Car Again (approx. 30-40 Mph). Mechanics Said That fords Aren’t Suppose To Have This Problem They Were Very Surprised And Told Us To Research The Internet For Recalls, That Is How I Found Safercar.gov And The Numerous Complaints For The Same Situation. This Problem Is Obviously An Issue With The Car Itself And Not In Anyway The Owners/operators Fault. There Should Be A Recall Issued Immediately Since This Issue Happens Suddenly With No Warning That There Is Anything Wrong With The Car And Could Result In Accidents/loss Of Life. *tr

While Driving Down A Country Road, The Vehicle’s Engine Suddenly Started Shaking Violently And Would Not Accelerate Above 3 Miles Per Hour. We Had To Push The Car Home And Have It Towed To The Dealership. The Problem Is The Throttle Body. ford Motor Co. Is Aware That There Is A Design Flaw With The Throttle Body In This Make/model. ford Has Re-designed This Part But Has Not Issues A Recall. The Car Has Been In The Shop For Over A Week Waiting For A New Throttle Body Because There Is A Shortage Due To A Large Number Of Vehicles Experiencing The Same Problem. ford Needs To Issue A Recall To Avoid What Could Have Been A Fatal Accident. If This Problem Had Occurred While Pulling Out Into Traffic, Or On A Major Highway The End Result Could Have Easily Have Been A Fatal Accident. ford Needs To Recall This Part Now! *tr

I Was Driving On A Major Highway (i-70) East From St. Louis, Mo, To Dayton, Oh. Cruise Control Was On At 65 Mph, Moderate/heavy Traffic. All Of A Sudden, The Car Started To Decelerate Without Warning, A “wrench” Light And The Engine Light Came On, And When I Pressed On The Accelerator, Nothing Happened. I Pulled Over Onto The Shoulder, And The Car Was Shuddering. I Turned It Off And Let It Sit For A Minute And Then Turned It Back On. It Seemed To Be Fine, So I Got Back On The Highway. Three Miles Later, It Happened Again. I Did The Same Thing, Pulled Over/turned Off Car/restarted, And The Car Worked Okay Once I Got Back On The Highway. Four Miles Later, It Happened Again. This Time, I Was Between Two Semi Trucks, And Was Almost Rear-ended By The One Behind Me, Which Would Have Resulted In My Car Basically Being “crushed” Between The Two Tractor Trailers. I Was Able To Pull Over Onto The Shoulder Safely To Call For Roadside Assistance, And After Having To Tow My Car To The Nearest ford Dealership, They Advised Me It Was Caused By Failed Throttle Body (diagnostic Code P2111). The Service Agent There Told Me That This Was A Known Issue By ford (he Told Me He Has Seen The Same Problem On Close To 100 Other Cars), But The Company Has Done Nothing About It. I Came Very Close To Being Either Seriously Injured, Or Even Killed, Because Of This. I Truly Hope That Something Can Be Done About This Before Someone Is Seriously Injured Or Worse, Killed (i Know There Are Reports Of Crashes And Injuries As A Result Of This Problem As I Have Researched This Issue).

Car Appeared To Have Lost fuel Power While Driving Approx. 40 Miles Per Hour. Car Jerked And Speed Reduced To Approx. 5 Miles An Hour. Appeared To Not Be Receiving Any fuel Even When The Pedal Was Being Pushed. Pulled Over, Turned Motor Off Then Restarted. Drove Okay For About 5 More Minutes Than Did The Same Thing Again Only This Time While Driving On A Highway That Had The Shoulder Of The Road Being Worked On. The Time Was 5 Am And It Was Extremely Foggy. Visibility Was Poor And The Scenario Could Have Been Much Worse, All Things Considered. Repeated The Process Again Of Turning The Motor Off And Back On, Making It To My Place Of Work This Time Within 5 Minutes. Check Engine Light Came On And Remained On When The Car Was Started. Took Car To Dealership After Work (approx 8 Miles Away) Without Incident Although The Check Engine Light Was On. Technician Called Next Day Stating The Throttle Body Needed Replaced And Had Seen This On Multiple Occasions Lately With ford Vehicles. Although I Did Not Have An Accident I Can See Where This Issue Has Potential To Be Harmful To The Driver And Others. I Hope Something Is Done Soon Before Something More Serious Does Happens. *jb

Car Experienced A Sudden Loss Of Power During Acceleration From A Stop Sign. Lost 99% Of Power And Missed Heavily. Nearly Rear-ended. Pulled Over, Turned Car Off, Waited A Few Minutes And Restarted The Car. Ran Fine. Drove Approximately 15 Miles And 25 Minutes Before Parking The Car; Problem Did Not Recur. Drove Approximately 20 Miles And 30 Minutes To Dealership; Problem Did Not Recur. Dealership Diagnosed The Problem The Same As Many Of The Complaints On This Website – The Throttle Body Actuator Is Sticking. $400 Repair. Information Online Indicates That This Is A New Throttle Design By ford, So In Essence, ford Is Experimenting On My Dime. Not Acceptable. *jb

I Own A 2011 ford fusion. On 8/16/2013, On City Streets, Traveling Less Than 20 Mph, The Car Engine Cut Off, The Wrench Light Came On. I Was Able To Steer, But All Of My Dash Indicator Lights Were Functioning As Well As A/c And Radio. However, There Was No Response From The Accelerator. At Less Than 5 Mph, She Began To Shudder/balk Like I Was Just Learning To Drive A Stick Shift. On 9/2/2013, The Same Thing Happened At Two Separate Times, Except During The First I Was Driving On A Toll Road At 55 Mph. The Second Incident I Was Again Traveling At 55 Mph On An Access Ramp That Leads Onto The Interstate. In All 3 Incidents, The Wrench Light Came On And I Did Have Control Of The Steering Wheel And Was Able To Safely Get My Vehicle Out Of The Main Thoroughfare. I Then Shut Off A/c, Radio And Ignition; Waited A Short Time And Restarted The Car. Each Time She Hesitated Ever So Slightly Before Starting And I Was Then Able To Drive On To My Destination. *jb

I Had Accelerated Up To Approximately 45 Mph And The Engine Started Running Really Rough, Then Stalled. The Check Engine Light Lit Up. It Seemed To Go Down To Idle With No Response From Engine While Pushing The Pedal. I G
lided To The Side Of The Road And Crested The Hill, Then Let The Engine Sputter At Around Idle As I Was Able To Put It In Neutral And Let Gravity Take Me To The Bottom Of The Hill Where I Could Glide Around The Corner Into A Safe Parking Lot. I Shut The Car Down, Waited A Minute And It Started Back Up As Though Nothing Had Happened. The Check Engine Light Was Clear. I Have Not Tried To Check To See If It Stored Any Codes Yet. I Had Experienced 2 Previous Events In The Previous 2 Weeks With This Car. The Car Has Been Serviced Regularly. *tr

Driving 70 Mph Down The Highway And The Motor Simply Cut Off. Was Fortunately Able To Make It To The Emergency Lane And Come To A Stop Safely. Turned Ignition Off. Then Turned The Ignition On And The Car Immediately Cranked Back Up. Drove To Nearest Gas Station Thinking Maybe Being Low On Gas With About 40 Miles To Empty Was The Issue. Filled Up With Gas And Proceeded Home. The Next Day, As We Were Beginning To Take A Trip, After Turning Onto The On Ramp And Started To Accelerate To Get Onto The Highway, The Engine Turned Off Again. Fortunately Was Able To Get Stopped Before Being Hit From Behind By The Cars Closely Behind Me That Were Accelerating To Get On The Highway As Well Or By The Flowing Traffic On The Highway Itself As I Entered The Busy Highway, Thus Endangering The Lives Of My Whole Family And Those Persons Of The Vehicles That May Have Come In Contact With My Vehicle. Cranked Car Right Back Up And Slowly Proceeded To The ford Dealership. Where I Was Told That The Mfi Throttle Body And Motor Assembly Had To Be Replaced To Correct The Problem. This Is Failure Is A Danger To Every fusion Driver And Their Occupants, As Well As, Anyone That Is Driving Near Them That Could Hit Them In The Rear Or Possibly Hit Them In The Door Killing The Driver Or Occupants Because The Car Will Not Accelerate Though An Intersection Or Onto A Highway. *tr

Was Driving On A County Road Up A Slight Incline When The Engine Ran Very Rough And The Car Rolled To A Stop. Tried To Restart And Had The Same Condition – As Though The Engine Was Running On Two Cylinders. Was In The Middle Of The Road And Other Cars Ran Around Me. A Homeowner Came To The Rescue And We Were Able To Get The Car Slowly Rolling Onto His Driveway. After Sitting For Some Time The Engine Then Worked As Usual And We Drove Directly To The ford Dealer And Dropped The Car Off (it Was Sat. A.m.) So The Service Dept. Could Look At The Car Monday. Was Called Mon. And Told By Service That It Was The Throttle Body And Would Cost $640 To Repair. Authorized The Repair Plus Oil Change, Etc. My Wife Had Picked Me Up With Another Vehicle And I Checked The Internet For This Throttle Body Problem. There Was A Lot Of Info About It. Called Dealership And Told Them The Problem Has Existed For Years And I Would Not Pay For A Problem From The Factory (not Ordinary Wear And Tear) Which They Knew About When They Sold Me The Car New In 2010. Offered To Pay Half The Throttle Body Repair Cost As The Vehicle Was Out Of Warranty. Waiting For Their Decision. *tr

Driving On Highway 24/27 My Car Just Shut Off. No Warning. Then Sputtered. I Cruised Over To Shoulder. The Tool Light Was (wrench) On. I Cut Off The Car And Then Restarted The Car. Very Scary.

I Was Driving Down The Street When My Idle And Rpm Went Down And I Kept Pressing On The Gas Pedal But The Car Would Not Accelerate (warning Wrench Symbol Appeared). I Was Barely Able To Pull Out Of Traffic And I Nearly Got Hit In The Rear By A Tractor Trailer. I Turned Off The Car And Got Out My Manual Which Said Something About The Throttle Body. I Turned On The Car And Everything Was Fine So I Took The Back Road Home (nitetime) And Went About 10 Miles And Parked In Front Of My Home.

Driving Down Highway, Car Loses Power Like It Wasn’t Pulling, Luckily I Was In Slow Lane On Highway, When I Got Over To Shoulder Of 2 Lane Highway The Wrench On Dashboard Lit Up & Car Died, After Sitting For 5–7 Minutes It Cranked Back Up And I Was Able To Take To ford Dealership. I Am Not Real Happy After Reading All The Problems People Are Having. I Usually Take My 5 Yr Old Grandson To Daycare In Morning So After This I Am Kinda Leary Of Driving This Car. If I Had Have Been In The Fast Lane On This Highway I Would Have Had A Harder Time Getting Out Of Traffic And Probably Hit By Another Car Or An 18 Wheeler. Thank God I Did Not Have My Grandson With Me. After This I Seriously Think I Need To Get Rid Of This Vehicle. *tr

Vehicle Started To Have Problems Around 83,000 Miles. My Daughter Would Just Be Driving Along And Suddenly The Car Would Just Stop Accelerating And Go To Idle. She Would Have To Coast To The Side Of The Road To Get Out Of Traffic. She Was Able To Turn The Car Off And Start It Again And Clear The Problem. It Would Go A Couple Of Weeks Without Incident Until All Of The Sudden Would Happen Again. On Most Occasions, The Yellow “wrench” Light Would Come On As Well. We First Assumed It Was Bad Gas Or The fuel Pump, But After Researching Discovered A Lot Of Complaints With The Exact Symptoms That Pointed To A Faulty Throttle Body. I Decided To Submit A Complaint After Last Night Her Car Once Again Stopped Accelerating On A Bridge With A Police Officer Behind Her Whom Proceeded To Pull Her Over. Fortunately, The Officer Was Understanding To The Situation. It Is Very Unsettling To Have Your Inexperienced 17 Year Daughter On The Highway With A Vehicle That Operates In This Capacity. ford Has Been Manufacturing Cars For How Many Years And This Is Still The Best They Can Do? To Be Driving Down The Highway At 60 Mph And Your Car Just Transfer To Idle Speed. Ridiculous! *tr

While Pulling Into A Parking Space The And Depressing The Brake Vehicle Suddenly Jolted Forward Crashing Into A Post. The Check Engine Light Came On Indicating There Was A Problem. We Have Reported To ford On Multiple Occasions That The Car Surges When Coming To A Stop. We Have Been Informed That They Are Unable To Do Anything Without An Error Code. After The Insurance Company Repaired The Car We Drove It To ford. Unfortunately We Were Told That The Error Code Will Clear After Driving A “complete Cycle” Or “runni
ng A Vehicle Health Report”. Both Were Completed And ford Repair Tech’s Say This Is A Known Issue But Without A Code They Can Not Do Anything About It. I Own 2 ford 2011 fusions. The Other Car Had An Issue Where It Would Frequently Stall Or Go “limp” As ford Calls It. Much Like The Surges We Have Experienced With This Vehicle, I Had Numerous Occasions This Occurred Without Any Check Engine Light. Finally It Went “limp” Getting Onto The Highway And The Check Engine Light Came On. I Brought It Into ford A Few Days Later. The Light Was Off But They Were Able To Recover The Code. I Believe There Is A Major Issue With The Computerize Throttle Control In These Vehicles And A Recall Is In Order. We Are Lucky That The Driver Did Not Get Injured. The Airbag Did No Deploy Even Though There Was Substantial Damage To The Front End. The Damage Was Caused By A Post That Cut Through The Bumper And Damaged Up To The Radiator. As Part Of The Research Done I Believe A Detailed Analysis Of How The Error Codes Are Stored Should Be Done. If The Cars Computer Can Clear Errors There Is Limited Evidence/documentation Of Problems. This Appears To Me As A “feature” To Eliminate Any Trace Of An Issue. *tr
