I Was Traveling About 35 To 40mph When The Car Starting Acting Up. Anytime I Had To Slow Down And Then Speed Up The Rpm Would Not Shift, When It Did Shift It Would Jerk The Car Forward. I Also Have Been Having An Issue Where I Would Step On The Gas And It Would Act As If It Was In Neutral. This Continues To Happen And I Fear That One Of These Times I Will Be In An Accident With My Kids In The Car. These Are All Transmission Issues, I Have Brought It In Twice Now First Time They Did The Tsb Which Was To Reset The Pcm And My Ac Wasn’t And Still Is Not Working. Resetting The Pcm Did Not Work So Now Back In The Shop It Sits. This Car Is Only 4 Months Old And Already Has Safety Issues Being The Transmission. There Needs To Be A Recall Before There Are Deaths.

On September 15, 2011 I Was Driving My 5 Month Old 2011 ford fusion 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

Nothing Actually Happened Yet. This Morning On My Way To Work, My Vehicle Seemed Like It Was Ready To Accelerate Without Me Pressing The Gas. I Was At A Stoplight, Then I Noticed My Vehicle Was Trying To Take Off On It’s Own. It Was Giving Slight Jerks To Go Forward. First Time I Experienced This.

While Driving ~55mph In Left Lane Of A 3-lane Interstate At Morning Rush Hour, The Engine Lost power, Continued Running At ~1000rpm, But Would Not Accelerate. The Check Engine And Wrench Lights Were On. The Car Was Nearly Hit By Numerous Vehicles As I Coasted To The Emergency Lane On The Right Side Of The Expressway. The Engine Was Shut Off, Then Restarted, And It Was Ok For Several Miles. The Same Scenario Was Repeated Twice While Driving To A Nearby Dealer. The Throttle Body Was Replaced At A Cost Of $650 Since It Was Out Of Warranty. Service Personnel Told Me That They Had Seen Several Of These Same Problems On fusions. This One Dealer Is Most Likely Representative Of Others, So There Must Be A Very Large Number Of These Problems Occurring In Nearly New Vehicles. Why Hasn’t ford, Where Quality Used To Be Job One, Issued A Recall? This Car Has Been Otherwise Flawless Up To This Point. *tr

It Has Happened Before To My Wife On Two Other Occasions. So I Took The Car Out And Drove It Around And Was Coming Back Home And After Turning Onto Our Rode And Got Up To 45 Mph The Wrench Light And The Check Engine Light Came On And Loss All power. Step On The Gas Pedal And There Was Nothing. Rolled Over To The Shoulder And Put In Park And Waited For A Couple Of Minutes And Restarted It. Went About Another 300 Yards And It Did It Again. Did Some Research On The Internet And ford Has Been Having This Problem With The fusion And There Other Cars Like The Escape. They All Came Down To The Throttle Body Being Bad And Had To Be Replaced. But My Question Is If They Have Been Having This Problem For Awhile Why Hasn’t ford Or Someone Put A Recall On These Throttle Body’s. This Can Cause A Serious Accident If A Person Is Going Down The Highway And This Occurs The Person Could Be Possibly Rear Ended. *tr *js

Background: I Am A Member Of The Us Military Stationed Overseas, So It’s A Little Harder To Do Maintenance On Vehicles…. I Purchased A ford fusion Last Year Understanding It Was A Vehicle I Wouldn’t Have To Do Much Maintenance On For The Next Few Years Besides The Basic Oil, Coolant, Brake Fluid, And Filter Checks. For The Last Year It Had No Problems Until Yesterday. I Was Driving Home And Came To A Busy Intersection Where I Had To Turn Left From A Stop. 1 1/2 Seconds Into The Turn (about 6 Mph) My Throttle Cut Off, The Wrench Light Came On And I Was Coasting About 4 Mph Through The Intersection With Oncoming Traffic… Not An Experience You Want To Have In A Foreign Country. I Got Through The Intersection, Pulled Over And Noticed My Engine Was Wavering In Rpm’s From Around 1000-2500. I Turned Off My Car, Waited About 2 Minutes And Turned It Back On To Notice It Didn’t Turn Over Like The Other Hundreds Of Other Times It Did In The Past Year. It Took About 6-7 Seconds Of The Engine Cranking To Get It To Run. I Took It Home And It Sat Overnight In My Carport. Today It Happened Again At A 4 Way Stop. I Would Love To Know If ford Is Going To Do Something About This Issue. I Have Read Multiple Posts And A Ton Of Other People Are Having The Same Problem. Now It Seems I Need To Replace My Throttle Body Which Is Not Going To Be Cheap. There Comes A Time Where The Dealer Needs To Step In, Especially If It Is Putting People At Risk….. *tr

Traveling At Freeway Speed, Engine Suddenly Lost All power And Reverted To Idle Rpm. Engine Was Idling Roughly, And Pressing On Accelerator Would Not Increase Rpms. The “wrench” (check Engine) Light Was Illuminated. Was Able To Coast Downhill To Exit Freeway; Very Unsafe Condition. Switched Off Engine, Restarted Engine … And It Ran Normal; “wrench” Light Extinguished. Took Car To Walnut Creek ford Following Morning; They Said No Fault Code Was Recorded On The Cars Computer And They Could Not Replicate Problem. Service Rep Told Me ford Had No Records Of Any Previous Problems Of This Nature, So I Should Just Keep Driving The Car. I Told Him That Was Unsafe, And He Replied There Was Nothing Else He Could Do. He Said He “could Not Just T
hrow Parts At An Unknown Problem”‘. Same Problem Occurred On Nov 01, 2012. I Did An On-line Search On Various ford fusion Forums And Found Multiple Reports Of This Same Situation With V6 Engine Attributed To Throttle Body Housing. Immediately Took Car To Walnut Creek ford And Told Service Manager I Would Not Accept The Car Until It Was Repaired. Showed Him Copies Of Multiple On-line Reports Of Same Problem And Told Him His Rep Had Lied During My Previous Visit About ford Not Knowing Of Any Previous Reported Problems. Service Manager Replied That “on-line Reports Are Not Always Real”, But Said He Would Have His Best Mechanic Check My Car. Mechanic Found Defective Throttle Body Housing And Replaced. Have Not Had Recurrence Of The Engine Failure. *tr

Driving A 2011 ford fusion Sel Awd 3.0l 6-cyl Traveling Approx. 65mph On Interstate 88, Vehicle Shuddered, Wrench Light Lit And No Throttle Control. No power. I Nearly Was Rear Ended Due To Significant Speed Reduction. Re-cycle Of The Engine Causes The Light To Go Out And You Can Continue On Your Drive. An Identical Event (set Of Symptoms) Happened In Traffic Two Weeks Earlier At Approx 20mph After Leaving A Stop Light. I Experienced A Loss Of All power In Traffic Causing My Car To Nearly Be Struck. When Recycling The Engine, The Code That Causes The Wrench Light To Come On Is Re-set And ford Is Unable To Detect The Error And Refuses To Correct The Problem. There Is Significant Evidence On The Internet That These Symptoms Are Pointing To A Failure In The Throttle Body (electronic Throttle Control). I Feel That This Is A Safety Issue That Needs To Be Addressed Immediately By ford Who Needs To Diagnose By Symptom As Well As By Code. Their Software Does Not Preserve A Safety Critical Code Across Vehicle Re-starts Which Is A Major Issue In My Opinion. ford Warranty Does Not Want To Recognize The Issue Or Replace The “throttle Body” Without A Code Being Captured But Their Software Is Not Designed To Preserve The Code (catch 22). *tr

While Driving At Highway Speeds, The Engine Will Go Into A Very Violent Idle And The Throttle Will Become Un-responsive And An Orange Wrench Light Will Come On The Dash. This Has Happened Twice Now In A Week And Is Very Dangerous When It Happens. You Have To Try And Navigate Through Traffic To Get Off The Highway While Coasting Only Since You Can’t Give It Any Gas. ford Has To Know About This Issue Since Its Everywhere Online And Everywhere On This Website. It Is A Very Serious Issue And Needs To Be Fixed. ford Won’t Fix It Under The power Train Warranty Even Though Its A Critical Part Of Making The Vehicle Go. *tr

While Driving My 2011 fusion On The Road At 55 Mph, The Engine Suddenly Quit And The Wrench Light Came On. The Slowdown Was Fast, And I Could Have Been Hit From Behind Very Easily, But I Lucked Out Because The Person Behind Me Took Notice Of My Drastic Drop In Speed. I Coasted Off To The Side Of The Road, Turned Off The Car, Waited A Few Moments And Then Restarted The Engine. Fortunately I Got Home Ok, So I Thought Is Was Maybe A Fluke Occurrence. When I Left For Work The Next Morning, The Same Thing Happened As I Was Driving; Same Road, Same Speed, Same Wrench Light, Etc. When I Got The Car Restarted, I Took It To The Local ford Dealer. They Thought They Had Fixed The Problem With A Relay Switch(?), But Once Again, The Engine Quit While I Was Driving Back To Work That Same Morning. This Time More Than The Wrench Light Lit Up. I Went Through The Restart Routine Again, But This Time It Was Not A Very Smooth Start – I Did Not Think It Was Going To Start, But It Did, And I Took It Back To The Dealership Again Where They Are Currently Trying To Figure Out What The Problem Is. This Is A Considerable Safety Hazard To Anyone Traveling With Me And/or Driving My Car, And An Unsafe Environment For Those Driving Near Me. My Car Has Been At The Dealership Most Of The Day Now, And No Word On The Problem Or Rectification Thereof. I Am Extremely Concerned And Very Worried This Issue Will “mushroom”. *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

I Was Driving On The Highway With My Cruise Control On, When Suddenly The Wrench Light Came On The Dash And The Car Began To Slow Down, No power. I Had To Move From The Fast Lane Over To The Slow Lane To Get Off The Side Of The Road. There Was A Very Rough Idle. There Were Many Cars Around And So It Was A Dangerous Situation. I Called The ford Store And They Said To Shut The Engine Off And Restart The Car. I Did, And It Started, Drove It To The ford Store, And Dropped It Off. The Car Did Not Store Any Codes, So The Educated Guess Is That It Is The Throttle Body. They Say It Isn’t Covered Under The Original Warranty, But Is Under My Extended Warranty. It Sounds Like This Is A Big Problem And Should Just Be Recalled By ford. *tr

While In Transit On A Busy Major State Road, Fully Accelerated To The 60 Mph Speed Limit, My Car Made A Rather Abrupt “hiccup” And Immediately Decelerated To 45 Mph. I Attempted To Accelerate Without Success. The Car Continued To Lose power, At Which Time I Immediately Pulled To The Side Median. The Wrench Icon On The Dashboard Illuminated. I Contacted Roadside Service As The Car Has The Remainder Of The Manufacturer’s Warranty In Place. The Dealership Diagnosed The Problem As A Faulty Throttle Body With A Fault Code Dtc P2111, And Informed Me This Issue Is Not Covered Under Any Warranty. This Is A Known Issue With The ford fusion Line And Could Potentially Result In Serious Injury Or Death. A Recall Should Be Issued, And ford Should Be Held Responsible For The Repair/replacement Of The Faulty Part With A Part That Has No Defect. *tr

While Entering Interstate 275 South On Ramp In Tampa, Fl My Car Abruptly Stopped Responding To The Gas Pedal And The Little Wrench Light Came On. All I Could Do Is Coast To A Stop On The Side Of The Road. Once My Speed Slowed To Around 5 To 10 Miles Per Hour, The Car Began To Jerk And Shake. I Put It In Park, Turned It Off And Restarted The Engine, And It Worked Like Normal For About Another Month Or So Until It Happened Again While I Was Turning Right On Red On A Major 5 Line Street. Since Then It Has Happened At Least 20 Times And Has Become Increasingly More Frequent. After A Little Research On The Web, It Seems Hundreds Of People Are Describing The Exact Same Problem. I Mean Exactly In Every Way Except For The Speeds And Locations. The Oldest Model That I Recall Seeing This Problem Described About Online Is A 2010 With Only 15000 Miles On It. This Is A Potentially Very Dangerous Issue, That In My Opinion, Needs To Be Fixed. When I Was Making That Right Turn, The Car Just Stopped In The Middle Of The Road And I Had To Quickly Restart The Engine And Floor It To Avoid Causing An Accident. *tr

The Failure Recurred On Three Occasions. The Vehicle Was Taken To The Dealer For Diagnostic Testing However, The Results Were Unknown. The Manufacturer Was Made Aware Of The Failure. The Vehicle Was Not Repaired. The Approximate Failure And Current Mileage Was 19,650. ..updated 02/25/13 *bf The Consumer Stated The Wrench Light Illuminated On The Dash, And The Vehicle Would Quickly Lose power And Speed, Go Into Idle/limp Mode And The Engine Would Continue To Run At A Very Low Rpm. Pressing On The Accelerator Did Nothing To Help. The Transmission Did Not Activate, Or Shift. The Vehicle Would Jump Slightly, But Very Little. The Only Alternative Was To Turn The Vehicle Off And Back On Again, And Then All Of The Functions Were Restored, But It Also Reset And Deleted The Code, So The Problem Could Not Be Determined. The Dealer Kept The Vehicle For Three Days Of Testing. On The Fourth Try, The Dealer Was Able To Duplicate The Failure, In Which A Code Of D42 Appeared. Updated 02/27/13

2011 ford fusion -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.

I Read Where The Nhtsa Was Looking Into Issues With ford Engines From 2009-2011 In fusions & Escapes. Thought I Would Relay My Incident. Traveling About 55-60 Mph, The Vehicle Suddenly And Without Warning Slowed To A Crawl On A Busy Highway. We Were Able To Nurse The Car To The Side Of The Road. Noticed A Amber “wrench” Warning Light. Turned Off The Vehicle And Re-started It. We Were Able To Get The Vehicle Home Under Normal Operating Conditions. Since It Was A Very Hot Day, Just Assumed It Was Heat Related. Happened 2 More Times That Week-end (at Lower Speeds In Parking Lots). Took It To The Dealer, But They Could Not Duplicate The Problem And Could Not Get An Error Code. Seems Like The Light Has To Actually Be On. The Dealer Replaced The Throttle Body (under Warranty). Have Not Experienced Another Incident Since, However The Gears Seem To Shift Much Harder Now, Though Not Constant. It’s A Great Vehicle, But I Always Have That power Loss In My Mind, Praying It Wont Occur Again. *tr

I Purchased A 2011 ford fusion Se On February 22, 2013. I Drove An Hour And 15 Minutes To The Dealership To Get This Vehicle. On My Drive Home, I Was Sort Of Skeptical About The Car Because On The Ride Back, Up And Down The Hills, I Could Feel A Slight Uneasiness Of The Car But Thought That Was Just The How It Was. The Next Three Days It Drove Fine Around Town. On The Fourth Day, On My Way Pulling Into Work, I Braked At The Stop Sign To Let Traffic Go And As I Let Off The Brake The Car Did Not Go Anywhere. I Sat There About 3 Or 4 Minutes Before I Could Get It To Go. Once I Got Home, I Left Out To Go To A Store And Parked To Go Inside. I Came Out And The Car Would Not Reverse. It Took Me About 15 Minutes Of Constantly Cranking It, Shifting Gears And Pressing The Gas Before I Could Get It To Move Again. I Love The Car And Its Features But I Hate That This Is Happening. What Can Be Done To Keep The Car And Avoid The Problems With It? *tr

I Was Traveling Down A Busy Road During Morning Rush Hour And Out Of No Where The Car Wouldn’t Move. As I Pushed The Gas Peddle It Wouldn’t Go And The Wrench Light On The Dash Came On. I Almost Was Hit From The Car Behind Me. I Then Put My Flashers On And Went To The Side Of The Road. I Turned The Car Off And Started It Up Again And The Wrench Light Went Off And Ran Ok. I Ran The Vehicle Report From The Microsoft Sync On The Car And No Warnings Came Up. While Coming Home It Did The Same Thing Again During Evening Rush Hour Traffic Nearly Getting Hit From Behind Again. I Pulled To The Side Of The Road And Turned The Vehicle Off And Started It Up Again. It Ran For Another 9 Miles And Did The Exact Same Thing Again. While Driving To The Dealership It Did This Two More Times. I Just Got A Phone Call From Them Saying It Was The Throttle Body. After Going Online And Reading Other People Having The Exact Same Issue And About Being Involved In Accidents Themselves Not Really Sure Why This Hasn’t Been Recalled!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This Is A Report For A ford fusion With 45000 Miles. First Event Occurred On Freeway Driving 65 Mph. Car Just Stopped Accelerating And Wrench Light Came On But I Was Able To Pull Over To Shoulder And Call Aaa. When They Arrived I Turned Off Car And Turned Car Back On And Car “reset” Itself To Normal Operation. I Garaged The Car For Several Weeks And Tried To Research Problem But Nothing Confirmed. I Drove Again A Couple Of Weeks Later (again 50 Mph) On Highway And Same Behavior And Made It To Shoulder. Turned Car Off And On To “reset”. This Is Extremely Dangerous And Life Threatening (may Get Rearended Or Not Have Ability To Pull Over…) Got Car To Bickford ford Service. They Said They Have One Other 2011 ford fusion With Same Issue (numerous Reports Of This On Internet But As Of Yet No Recall) Other Car Was Covered Under Emission Warranty To Replace Throttle Cable Because That Car Was From California. Mine Is Not. $460 Later… Save Receipt And Hope This Issue Is Listed As Recall For Reimbursement. This Is A Real Safety Issue!!!! *tr

There Is Another Issue As Well Though, While Driving It Hesitated By Shifting At Higher Rpm’s Than It Should And Took It To Dealer On Monday February 25, 2013 And They Still Have It With No Explanation As To Why It Did Any Of Those Things That I Mentioned. The Only Thing That The Service Guy Says Is “well Until It Is Billed Out I Do Not Know What Is Going On With The Car.” I Am Very Frustrated And Just Bought This Certified Pre Owned Two Weeks Ago.

Had The Vehicle For About A Month But Had Only Driven It About 600 Miles. (feb. 21, 2013 – 21,700 Miles) My Wife Was Driving Along A 4 Lane Road Doing About 50 Mph When She Noticed The Car Suddenly Losing power. She Was In The Left Hand Lane With No Shoulder Or Room To Move To The Right Lane Because Of Traffic And Was Almost Rear-ended By A Dump Truck Who Had No Idea She Was Rapidly Slowing Down Because She Wasn’t Putting On Any Brake To Indicate This. She Brought The Vehicle To A Stop But It Would Not Move Even When The Gas Pedal Was Depressed. She Thought It Had Stalled But Later Told Me She Didn’t Notice Any Dash Lights On. She Turned The Key Off And Restarted It And It Ran Fine The Rest Of The Way Home. Called ford Dealership Where It Was Purchased And He Asked About Engine Code Lights (of Which None Were Showing ). He Said Without A Code He Couldn’t Do Anything. ( March 7, 2013 – 22,400 Miles ) Turning A Corner From A Stop The Car Accelerated And Then Lost power, Engine Seemed To Sputter And Run Rough, Pulled Over And Stopped. Wrench Light On Dash Was On, Depressed Accelerator Pedal But Nothing Happened. Engine Was Running But Tachometer Didn’t Move At All When Accelerator Was Depressed. Turned Engine Off, Restarted, Wrench Light Went Off And Ran Ok. Have Also Noted That Transmission Shifting Is Not Always Shifting As Smooth As When We First Started Driving It. It Seems To Jump Or Lurch In At Least One Of The Gears But This Is Just An Intermittent Problem Right Now. I Will Take Note Of This And Report Back.

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.

On May 9, After Exiting The Interstate And Coming Off The Ramp Onto Another Highway, My Car Had No power When I Went To Accelerate. I Managed To Get To The Side Of The Road. When I Placed The Car In Park, It Began To Jerk. I Cut It Off And Sat There For A Minute. I Started The Car Again And It Didn’t Jerk Anymore, So I Decided To Try And Drive Home. Luckily, I Did Make It Home (only Had @3 Miles To Go). When The Car Was Started The Next Day And While It Was Sitting In The Driveway, The Rpms Would Go Up And Then Down And The Car Cut Off. When I Was Taking It To The Dealer For Repair, It Would Surge While Sitting At A Stop Light. Had The Car Repaired. Invoice Says The Throttle Body Was Replaced.

I Was Driving Home From School (this Has Happened Before, Just Not As Bad) And My Car Stopped Responding. The Wrench Light Came On And The Check Engine Light Came On. I Was On A Really Busy Road, So I Had To Pray That I Would Not Get Hit. I Turned Off The Car, And Tried To Restart It, But It Did Not Want To Restart. I Sat For A Few Seconds And Was Finally Able To Get It Restarted. This Happened Numerous (probably 6-8 Times) On My 12 Mile Trip Home. I Took It To The Shop This Morning And Found Out It Is The Throttle Body. I Just Looked It Up Online And Have Found Out This Is A Common Issue, And That The Dealerships (when The Car Is Under Warranty) Act Like They Don’t Know What It Wrong. This Is Not Right. There Needs To Be A Recall! I Don’t Have A Warranty Now, And I Took My Car To The Dealership Before The Warranty Was Up And They Said There Was Nothing Wrong With It Multiple Times!!!! *tr

I Was Driving 30mph Down A Busy Street, With Back-to-back Traffic, When The Car Jolted Forwarded At Which Time The Wrench Light Became Illuminated On The Dashboard, The Car Immediately Started Bucking (going Forward And Backward) And I Lost All Control Of The Accelerator. The Car Immediately Slowed To A Crawl While Continuing To “buck.” This Incident Forced E
veryone Behind Me To Slam On Their Breaks And I Was Nearly Hit From Behind. I Was Able To Maneuver The Car To The Side Of The Road Safely. My Children Were In The Car And Had I Been Going Any Faster, They May Have Suffered From Whiplash When The Car Jolted Forward, Started Bucking And Slowed To A Crawl Simultaneously Or This Incident Could Have Lead To A Several Car Pile Up Since This Happened During The Busiest Time Of Day. A Tow Truck Was Dispatched And Towed The Car To The Nearest Dealer. The Dealer Advised That The Throttle Body Motor Failed And When It Did, The Throttle Was Forced Shut (error Code: P2112). *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, 2011 ford fusion Sel Awd.

Vehicle Loses All power While Driving. Wrench Light Appeared The First 7 Times, But After Turning The Vehicle Off And Restarting, It Goes Away And Car Drives Like Normal. Today While Driving It Happened At Around 60mph. Both The Wrench Light And Check Engine Light Came On And After A Restart The Check Engine Light Stays On. Vehicle Barely Limped The Rest Of The 5 Miles To My House. This Has Happened At High Speeds On The Freeway As Well Nearly Causing Multiple Accidents. Currently Waiting On Dealership To Come Back With A Quote To Replace The Throttle Body. ford Needs To Issue A Recall Notice And Warranty The Cost Of The Replacement Before Someone Gets Killed Due To This Issue. They Are Just Weighing The Cost Of A Lawsuit Due To Fatality Vs. The Cost Of Warranting The Malfunctioning Part. Paying A Few Million To A Family Is Cheaper Than Paying To Fix ~725,000 Vehicles.

While Driving On A Busy Road In Rush Hour Traffic Going About 40-45 Miles Per Hour My Car Engine Was Still Running But Would Not Accelerate. I Looked Down At The Dash And The Wrench Light Was On. I Managed To Coast Out Of The Traffic And Get To A Safe Spot. I Tried To Call Dealer But They Were Not Open Yet. I Sat With Car Still Running For A Few Minutes To See If It Would Shift Into Gear But Nothing Happened. Engine Still Running But When Gas Pedal Was Pushed Nothing Happened. I Feel This Is A Safety Issue Because The Car Just Slows Down With No Warning And Could Have Caused An Accident. Not Sure What I Should Do At This Time So, I Shut The Car Off And Restarted It. It Seemed To Be Working, So I Started Back On The Road Only To Have It Happen Again. I Turned The Car Off And Back On Again And It Managed To Get Me To Work. I Have Not Gone To The Dealer As Of Yet But It Appears That The fusions Are Having A Throttle Body Issue. If I Go To The Dealer And The Car Is Not Acting Up, I Will Be Paying For Them To Tell Me They Can’t Find Anything Wrong. According To The Complaints This Is A Major Safety Issue. *tr

I Just Purchased This Car On June 26 2013 With 25580 Miles. I Pulled Out Of A Parking Lot And With No Warning An Orange Wrench Indicator Came On The Instrument Panel Followed By A Complete Loss Of Throttle Response. I Was Able To Pull Over, Put The Car In Park And Restart The Car. The Wrench Disappeared And The Car Was Driving Well. After About Two Miles I Entered The Interstate. After Several Miles Traveling In Heavy Traffic I Was Able To Cruise At About 65 To 70 Miles Per Hour. With No Warning Just As Described In The First Occurrence, The Wrench Light Came On And I Had No Use Of The Throttle. I Had To Pull Over To The Side Of The Road And This Time The Car Was Bucking And Shuddering. I Was Able To Restart The Car And Continue The Rest Of My Trip. I Have To Bring It To The Dealer On 07/01/2013 To Have It Diagnosed, But It Is Running Ok Now. The Only Other Problem I Have Had Is A Random Wavering Idle Speed. A Few Times The Car Has Hunted Between 600-900 Rpms While In Drive Sitting At A Traffic Light. At First I Thought This Just The Car Making Adjustments But Now I Wonder If It Is All Related.

2300 Rpm, Transmission Lurches, No Throttle Response. I Have To Pull Over And Cut The Ignition Off To Reset The Sensor. Happened Multiple Times And Finally The Check Engine Light Glowed. I Went To The ford Dealership They Said The Throttle Sensor Was Bad. I Pay Them To Replace The Whole Throttle Body, Which I Read Online Is Constantly Recurring. Not Covered In Warranty And The Number Of Times This Has Happened, ford Should Be Responsible For A Faulty Part. Not Me. *tr

On June 23, 2013, I Was At A Stop Light And In The Process Of Turning Right When I Accelerated My Car Suddenly Lost power And Wouldn’t Go Any Faster Than 2 Mph And A Wrench Light Came On In The Dash. I Pulled Into A Driveway That Was Close But I Was On A Busy Street. I Didn’t Want To Turn The Car Off Being Afraid That It Would Not Start Back Up So I Backed Out And Attempted To Drive Home Because I Was Very Close To My Home. I Backed Out And Was Able To Drive The Car Home Going This Same Speed…at Times The Car Would Act Like It Wanted To Accelerate But Never Did. When I Made It Home I Turned The Car Off And Out Of Curiosity Turned It Back On To See If It Would Start And It Started Right Up And The Wrench Was Gone. I Then Drove It Around My Neighborhood To See If It Would Duplicate The Problem But It Didn’t. On The Next Day, I Asked Someone To Follow Me As I Drove The Car Down A Busy Highway, Still Trying To See If The Problem Would Duplicate And It Would Not. On Yesterday, June 29, 2013, I Was Out Driving Going About 35 Mph And The Same Issue Described Above Happened (2 More Times) And Each Time I Turned The Car Off And Started It Back Up And It Was Fine. I Just Purchased My Car Used From A Reputable Dealership On Feb 25, 2013 And It Had 59,000 Miles On It When I Purchased It So It’s No Longer Under Factory Warranty And I Didn’t Purchase And Extended Warranty. Today I Just Happened To Search To See If Others Are Having This Same Issue With Their ford And Saw A # Of The Same Complaints And Truly Hope That ford Recalls The Vehicles For This And I Not Have To Pay For This Repair Out Of Pocket Because Clearly This Is An Issue Beyond The Consumers Control. *tr

6 Times In The Past 9 Days, The ford fusion Has Been Driving At Various Speeds (25 Mph To 65 M
ph) And Suddenly A “wrench” Warning Light Has Illuminated On The Dash, And Simultaneously The Car Seems To Lose All power To The Wheels. Depressing The Pedal Doesn’t Result In Any Acceleration Or To Maintain Speed, But The Rpm’s Don’t Increase Either. This Is Very Unsafe. In One Of The Incidents The Car Was In The Left Hand Lane Of A Major Highway, Traveling At 65 Mph, And Had To Be Guided Over Onto The Left Median As It Decelerated With Traffic Piling Up Behind. The Car Can Always Be Turned Off, Then Re-started, Put Back In Drive, And Then Functions Normally. This Seems To Be The Same Throttle Body Issue That Is Widely Reported On ford fusion Forum Websites. The Car Was Bought Used, But Has Been Driven For Almost 1 Year And 9,000 Miles And This Issue Had Never Appeared Before 9 Days Ago. *tr

While Accelerating On The Highway At Approximate. 65 Mph On 27jun13, At 1745, The 2011 ford fusion Sel Lost All Acceleration. We Pulled Over To The Right Hand Shoulder, Put The Vehicle In Park, And Turned It Off. We Waited A Moment, Restarted Then Engine, And Proceeded To Merge With Traffic. Less Than Two Miles Later, The Same Thing Happened. We Pulled Over Again, Turned Off Engine And Waited A Moment. We Restarted It And Drove It Home.

We Picked Up The Car, And Less Than 4 Miles From The Deals Hip We Had The Repairs Done, We Experienced The Same Issue Of Lost Acceleration.

The power Steering Went Of While I Was Driving At Approximately 45mph. The Indicator Showed Check power Trac power Steering. Took It To The Dealer Where I Bought The Car And They Put It On A Computer To See What Was Wrong. The Computer Showed The power Gear Needs To Be Replaced At $1600. But The Service Tech Said That May Not Be All That’s Wrong, But First Need To Replace The power Gear. This Should Be Covered In The Warranty And This Should Be A Recall Due To Having Occurred Numerous Times Before. Neither Of Which Is Occurring. This Could Be Very Dangerous And Cause Serious Injury If The Car, For Incidence, Is In The Passing Lane. After The Car Lost Its power Steering, I Was Able To Stop And Restart, Which Corrected The Steering. *tr

While Driving My 2011 ford fusion Down The Road, It Unexpectedly Lost power. The Engine Remained On (lights, Radio, Etc.), But Pushing On The Accelerator Did Not Cause It To Accelerate. The Car Was Turned Off & A Few Minutes Later, An Attempt To Restart The Car Was Made. The Starter Turned Over Multiple Times & Finally Started. This Occurred Three Times In A Five-day Period. It Was Taken To The Dealership, Where They Have Been Unable To Replicate The Occurrence, Though They Suspect There Is An Issue With The Throttle Body. One Has Been Ordered For Replacement. I Feel This Is A Very Unsafe Situation As The Car Unexpectedly Stopped All Three Times — Had Anyone Been Driving Behind Me (particularly At The Speeds We Were Traveling), I Feel That Serious Injury To Me & My Passengers Could Have Occurred. *tr

While Driving Vehicle Lost Engine power. Rpms Went To Zero, Engine Stayed At Idle Speed And Throttle Control Light (wrench Symbol) Came On. No Response When Gas Pedal Pressed. Coasted To Side Of Road And Turned Ignition Off. Waited 10 Minutes And Car Started Up With No Problems And No Warning Light. My Concern Is That If This Happened In Heavy/faster Traffic It May Have Caused An Accident. And After Researching Online As To What May Have Caused This Failure It Seems There Are A Large Number Of Consumers Having The Same Problem With This Make And Model.

I Was Leaving A Shopping Center And Had To A Stop To Yield To Traffic. When I Placed My Foot On The Accelerator, I Noticed That The Car Seemed To Have Lost power. I Could Not Accelerate Above10 Mph. I Also Felt The Car Shaking Violently. The Check Engine And Mechanic’s Wrench Warning Lights On The Dashboard Illuminated. I Pulled To A Stop At The Gas Station, Shut Off The Engine And Re-started The Vehicle. Afterwards, The Warning Lights On The Dashboard Were No Longer Illuminated, And The Car Seemed To Return To Normal. A Few Miles Down The Road (on A Highway Where The Speed Limit Is 50 Mph), I Came To A Stop At A Traffic Light. Once The Light Turned Green, I Attempted To Accelerate But Found That My Car Had Lost power Once Again And Could Hardly Move. The Check Engine Light Was Also Illuminated Again. I Was Stuck In The Left Lane Of The Road With No Shoulder To Pull Onto–a Very Dangerous Situation. I Put On My Hazard Lights, Turned The Car Off And On Again. Then, I Was Able To Drive The Car Normally A Few Miles To My Home. However, The Engine Light Remained Illuminated. I Had The Car Towed To A Repair Shop Because I Considered It Unsafe To Drive. The Shop Informed Me That The Throttle Body Needed To Be Replaced. The P
art Was On National Back-order For Over A Week. . Clearly, This Is A Common Problem For ford fusions. Considering The Safety Risks, I Am Very Surprised That There Has Been No Recall. *tr

Incident#1: Traveling On Freeway Fast Lane At Around 65 Mph, Engine Appeared To Cut Out For No Apparent Reason. Lost All power, But Radio Still On. Put On Emergency Flashers And Was Fortunate Enough To Be Able To Get All The Way Over To Emergency Lane. Turned Off Ignition, Took Out Key, Turned Car Back On, And Everything Started Normally. Was Able To Get Back Home Without Any Other Problem. Incident#2: Pulling Away From A Stop Sign At Around 5 Mph After Having Driven Only About A Mile From Home. Engine Cut Out Again As I Was Accelerating. Pulled To The Side Of The Road And Turned Off Car, Removed Key From Ignition, Started Car Again And Everything Was Fine. Fortunately, I Have Been Alone In The Car When This Has Happened, But I Have Two Children Under 4 Whom I Transport Often. It Seems Like Only A Matter Of Time Before I’m In A More Serious Situation And This Happens Again (such As Turning Left Into Oncoming Traffic With My Kids In The Car). Based On Many Complaints On This Site And Actual Personal Accounts Of Other ford fusion Owners Who Have Had The Exact Same Problem, It Seems Obvious That There Is A Problem With The Throttle Body. Hopefully There Will Be A Fix For This Before Someone Gets Seriously Injured. *tr

1st Incident: I Was With My Children In The Car At A Red Light, When The Light Changed To Green I Pushed The Gas Pedal To Move Forward The Car Started Jerking And Shaking Then All The power Was Lost To The Car. The Wrench Light Was Also On. I Turned The Key Off, Waited A Few Minutes Turn The Key Again And Car Started And Drove Fine From There. 2nd Incident: My Husband Stopped At A Stop Sign With Myself And My Children In The Car, Proceeded Forward And The Car Began To Loose power And Jerking And Shaking, We Only Made It Across The Intersection Because We Drifted. The Wrench Light Came On. He Turned The Key Off, Waited A Few Minutes, Turned The Key And Car Started And Drove Okay From There. 3rd Incident: Myself With My Children In The Car Stopped At A Red Light. When I Proceeded To Turn And Go Forward The Car Began Loosing power, Then Started Jerking And Shaking And The Wrench Light Came On. I Turned The Key Off, Waited A Few Minutes And Started It Back Up And Went Ok From There. Took The Car To Dealer And They Diagnosed It As Throttle Body Problem That Needed $771.00 In Repair. It Is Past The 36,000 Mile Warranty. We Bought The Car Used From The Dealer, Past The Emissions Warranty Date. This Is A Safety Issue And Concern That Should Warrant A Recall. *tr

Driving On The Highway At A Rate Of 70 Mph With Traffic Behind And Ahead Of Me, I Lost power And The Car Went Into Limp Mode. The Wrench Light And Check Engine Light Went On. I Could No Longer Speed Up And Began To Lose Speed (rather Quickly I Might Add) The Car Immediately Behind Me Came Very Close To Colliding With Me! I Couldn’t Go Faster Than 30 Mph And Had To Pull Over On The Shoulder Of The Highway. I Turned The Car Off And When I Tried To Turn It Back On, It Took An Oddly Longer Amount Of Time To Turn On. (like Holding The Key Turned In The Ignition) Then Sitting At A Traffic Light, When I Started To Go When It Turned Green, I Was Going 5 Mph And The Rpm’s Shot Up To 3000 Rpm!

I Was Entering The Freeway On Ramp At Approximately 25-30 Mph When The Car Suddenly Started Stalling. The Wrench-shaped Warning Light Came On And I Could Not Accelerate Even Though I Attempted To Step On The Gas Pedal. The Car Started Jerking, Shaking, And Slowed Down Significantly To About 10/15 Mph. The Car Behind Me Almost Hit Me As Well Because I Couldn’t Control The Car’s Speed Any Longer. Luckily, I Was Able To Maneuver The Car To The Right-hand Shoulder. However, This Is An Extremely Dangerous Car To Be Driving And There Really Shouldn’t Be Any Severe Problems Such As This Because We Just Bought This Car Less Than 3 Years Ago! I Don’t Know What’s Wrong With The Transmission. Looking Back On It, I Also Do Not Understand Why This Occurs While Shifting Between The 2nd And 3rd Gears. I Have Also Observed Extremely High Rpms At Lower Speeds. I Hope The Government Will Ask ford For A Recall Because I Don’t Want Anyone Else To End Up In This Type Of Dangerous Situation That Could Potentially Kill Someone. Definitely A Transmission Problem. Took This To The Dealer, Who Told Me It Was A Throttle Body Problem And They Are Still Working To Fix It. Granted, I Don’t Drive Like A Grandma.

I Was Doing 55 Mph And My Car Stalled, The Wrench And Check Engine Light Came On Then The Car Stopped. After A Couple Attempts The Car Started And I Was Allowed To Drive Although I Was Scared And Got Off The Freeway. I Also Have Had A Problem With My Wheels Knocking When I Turn Like One Of The Tires Are Going To Come Off. Now I Have To Replace The Throttle Body! I Took The Car To The Mechanic And Now All These Things Have To Be Fixed And Have Become Quite Costly, Not To Mention The Car Was Made To Not Have A Gas Cap? Really? I’m Starting To Wonder If The ford fusion Is The Right Car To Have And The Safety Questions Are Always In My Head Because If A Car Stops On The Freeway While Doing 55 A Serious Accident Can’t Be Too Far Behind. I Pray These Issues All Get Addressed And Recalled So No One Gets Killed! I Did Research On This Website And Found That The Same Issues Have Happened To Many Others But When I Called ford‘s Customer Relations Department I Was Told There Are No Recalls For My Vin. I Can’t Imagine I Am The Only One Having These Troubling Issues Taking Place But It Only Affected Certain Models. Seems To Me All ford fusions Should Have These Items Recalled And Replace Regardless Of What Model. I Now Have To Keep My Receipt From The Mechanic Because It Was Not A ford Dealer Who Fixed My Car And Hope That The Recall On These Issues Will Allow Me To Get My Hard Earned Monies Back One Day Soon. Frustrated ford fusion Owner To Say The Least. *tr

I Drive A 2011 ford fusion, And On August 8, 2013, I Was Driving On A Highway At About 65 Mph And I Went Down To About 5mph. I Had To Pull Over And Turn Off The Car. The Check Engine Light And Wrench Light Came On When This Happened. After I Shut It Off The Wrench Light Went Off, But The Check Engine Light Stayed On. This Happened Again After I Started The Car Again. The Car Is Now In The Shop. This Should Be A Recall Part. *tr

Vehicle Stalled Without Warning In Heavy Traffic. Pulled Off, Restarted. Resumed Normal Operation. Stalled Again. Restarted Again. Began Stalling At Lights. Had To Trim Gas Pedal While Stopped To Keep Running. Car Stalls On Acceleration B/w 2nd And 3rd Gear (6 Speed Manual). When Car Stalls While Underway, Major Shudder Occurs. Has Gone Into Limp Mode But After Restart Will Be Normal Operationally For A Short Time And Then Without Warning Cut Out. Extremely Dangerous Situation, In Particular When Accelerating From A Stop Or Into Traffic Or If Successful Doing That, Stalling Without Warning At Speed And With Cars/trucks Bearing Down On You. At One Of The Above Stalls, Had Tractor Trailer Bearing Down On Me Without An Ability To Remove The Car From Road In That Particular Area. Throttle Body Codes P2111 And P2112 Indicating Bad Throttle Body. Very Common Occurrence Apparently Among The 2010 Through 2012 ford fusions.

Driving Down Road And Lost All power And Acceleration. Wrench Light Came On And When I Attempted To Crank Car It Sounded Like It Was Constantly Trying To Crank. Turned Car Off And Trued Again. It Started And Allowed Me To Reach My Destination, Which Was A Mile Down The Road. The Next Day It Did The Same Thing. Took It To The ford Dealership Service Area And It Was The Throttle Body. Of Course It Wasn’t Covered Under Warranty Even Though It Is A Part Of The power Train. The Concern Is That This Is Happening A Lot To These Cars And Had I Been On The Interstate My Family And I Could Have Died Due To The Loss Of Everything. I Was Not Able To Get Car Off The Road And It Stopped Extremely Fast And Sudden. I Was Out Of Town And Had No Other Choice To But Get It Repaired Where I Was. *tr

On June 10, 2013 I Was Driving On A Side Street And Stopped At An Intersection. I Went To Accelerate To Advance Into The Intersection And It Was As If I Had Lost power. I Was Able To Get The Car To The Side Of The Road. The Wrench Was Illuminated On The Dash. I Turned Off The Car And Started It And It Seemed Fine. A Few Weeks Later,around July 18th, I Was Backing Out Of My Driveway And The Same Thing Happened. I Limped To The Side Of The Road And Turned Off The Engine And It Started Fine. On August 9 I Was On The Highway In The Slower Speed Lane And I Felt The Car Hesitate. It Was As If The Engine Wasn’t Getting Any Gas. The Car Had Only Enough power To Get To The Side Of The Road, A Local ford Dealership Was Close By So We Brought The Car There. We Were Told It Is The Throttle Body And Air Bypass And That The Part Is On Backorder And They Can’t Estimate When The Part Will Be In. Searching The Web I Found This Is A Known Issue With The 2009-2011 fusions And There Could Be A Recall. The ford Dealership Never Said A Word About A Known Problem.

Drive Out Of Town On A Single Lane Road Going 55 Mph And Without Warning The Car Showed A Wrench Symbol And Lost All Throttle Response At The Foot Pedal. Had To Pull Over On A Highway Without A Shoulder And Turned Off The Car. Restarting The Car Cleared The Wrench Symbol And I Had Throttle Response. Tried To Drive The 10 Miles That I Had Left To Get Home And The Issue Happened 4 More Times. Internet Search Pointed To A Bad Throttle Body And It Looks Like A Major Issue On Multiple ford Cars/suvs. ford Dealer Ship Has A New Part Number For This Throttle Body With A 2 Month Backorder With Around 6,534 Units On Backorder! Ordered A New Part Number From Ebay And Seems To Be Working. I Did The Replacement In 10 Minutes, But Have Read Online That People Are Paying Around 500 Dollars At The Dealership To Replace This Part. That Alone Should Be A Law Suit!

I Was Driving My 2011 ford fusion Sel To Work This Morning And Experienced The Following…. While Accelerating From Second To Third Gear My Car Would Slightly Jerk. Suddenly My Car Stopped Accelerating And The Wrench Light Comes On. The Car Is Still Running But I Cannot Accelerate. It Was A Good Thing I Was Able To Pull Over Because This Could Have Caused A Serious Accident. Once I Pulled Over, I Placed My Car In Park And Restarted It Within 2 Minutes. This All Happened In The Morning During Morning Traffic. Fortunately, My Office Was Less Than A Mile Away And I Managed To Make It. During My Lunch Break, I Had A Co-worker Follow Me To The Goodyear About 4 Miles Away. The Same Situation Happened Twice During The Drive There. I Officially Received The Cause Of The Problem, A Defective Throttle Body With The Code Being P2111. The Repair Will Cost 510.00… I Did Not Realize That There Are So Many Others That Has Had This Issue. Lives Could Be Lost Over This. I Thank God That I Was In The Position To Get Over.

This Is A Known Issue With 2011 And Other Model ford fusions And Other Model ford Cars. According To The Media, On Oct 2nd 2012 Nhtsa Created A Defect Petition To Open An Investigation On Escape And fusion Vehicles. I Was Traveling On Over The Chesapeake Bay Bridge On I50 In Morning Traffic Ata ~ 60 Mph When All Of A Sudden My fusion Lost Complete power. This Caused A Hazardous Situation. I Then Had To ‘limp’ Over A Mile Up The To The Top Of The Bridge At Less Than 5 Mph Until I Could Put The Vehicle In Neutral And Coast Down The Other Side. Myself And Numerous Other Vehicles Were Subjected To A Hazardous Condition When This Occurred. Later Troubleshooting Revealed My Problem Was The Well Known ‘fusion Throttle Body Issue’ Currently Under Investigation. Local ford Dealer Al Packard In White Marsh Md Service Dept Confirmed The Issue As The ‘2111’ Fault And Problem. After Reading All Of The Details On This Problem On The Internet, I Discussed The Matter At Length With Local And National ford Customer Service People. Although This Is A Well Known Issue, ford Has No Customer Warranty Program In Place For This Dangerous Problem, Nor Is It Covered Until Their power Train Warranty. There Needs To Be A Recall Warranty Program And Have This Problem Fixed Before More People Get Hurt. In My Case I Witnessed Numerous Unsafe Conditions While I Was Limping Up The Bridge For 20 Minutes. The Situation Could Have Caused A Terrible Accident On The Chesapeake Bay Bridge. I Work As A Flight Safety Product Support Manager For A Major Aircraft Engine Manufacturer. Any Loss Of Thrust Control Issue Is Handled As A Safety Issue And Recall Programs Are Put In Place. The Same Needs To Occur Here. My Brother Who Also Owns A 2010 fusion Had A Similar Issue Where He Has Lost Complete power While Traveling ~65 Mph In Interstate Traffic. *tr

My Car Had Just Over 52000 Miles On It When This Incident Occurred. I Was Driving On The Highway Around 70 Mph When My Car Lost Throttle Control. It Felt Like The Transmission Pulled Itself Out Of Gear And I Was Unable Accelerate. I Had Very Little Control Over My Car. When This Issued Occurred The “wrench” Icon On The Dashboard Had Turned On. I Was Able To Pull Over To The Shoulder, And When I Put The Car In Park The Car Began To Mildly Jerking. Frantic, I Turned Off The V
ehicle To Stop The Jerking. After About 10 Seconds, The Car Was Finally Calm And I Attempt To Restart The Car. When Car Was Restarted There Was No Longer Any Jerking Coming From The Vehicle, The Wrench Icon Was Gone, And I Had Control Of My Gas Pedal Again.

I Made A Complaint On 8/25/13 About The Throttle Body. I Called The ford Dealership To Have It Checked To See What Was Wrong With It. They Called Back And Said It Was Definitely The Throttle Body And That The Part Would Not Be In For 4-6 Weeks Because The Part Was Back Ordered Due To High Demand. There Are So Many Cars That Need To Have This Replaced. I Couldn’t Believe It. I Am Now Without A Car Because I Am Afraid To Drive It For Fear I Will Get Hit. I Am Still Having To Make A Payment And No Car To Drive. No Warranty So When I Do Get It Fixed I Will Have To Pay Out Of My Pocket. Hopefully They Do The Right Thing And Have The fusions That Are Affected Recalled. *js

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.

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

But I Am Starting To Feel Very Unsafe In My Vehicle Because There Is No Warning When My Car Will Stall Out And I Do A Lot Of Highway Traveling.

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. Fortu
nately 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.

While Driving In The Center Lane On The Southbound I-5 Freeway My 2011 ford fusion Began To Feel Like It Was Driving Through Mud And Lost Acceleration. When I Attempted To Compensate By Accelerating The Car, It Resisted And Continued To Slow Significantly. Thankfully Traffic Was Not Extremely Heavy At The Time And I Was Close To A Freeway Exit. I Pulled To The Right, Avoiding Oncoming Traffic (barely) And Coasted Down The Off Ramp. By The Time I Got To The Off Ramp (about 10 Seconds) The Car Had Gone From 65 Mph To Less Than 5 Mph. If It Wasn’t For The Momentum Of The Vehicle I Would Not Have Been Able To Make It And Would Have Been At A Dead Stop In The Middle Of The Freeway With Oncoming Traffic (and Semi Trucks) Going Between 60 And 75 Mph. The Engine Was Throbbing, The Car Was Shaking, And I Had No Acceleration Capability At All. I Had Enough Momentum On The Off Ramp Downslope To Turn Right And Stop My Vehicle At The Side Of The Road. I Called A Tow Truck And The Car Was Taken To A Dealership For Repairs. I Was Told The Throttle Was The Problem And It Was Replaced Under Warranty. Had Timing Not Been Exactly Right, This Problem Could Have Caused A Very Serious Or Even Deadly Accident For Me And For Other Drivers On The Road. I Have Since Learned About This Ongoing Issue Online And Wish I Would Have Known At The Time That It Was A Problem And Known How / That I Could Submit A Concern To The Nhtsa.

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 2011 fusion 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.

I Did Not Have Control Over The Speed Of The Car For A Moment. Then The Wrench And The Check Engine Light Came On. The Car Stuttered And Then Shut Off. I Was Almost Rear Ended In The Middle Lane Of Traffic. *tr

Was Going Just Going Down A Residential Street And A Warning Light Came On And My Car Started Surging And Running Rough And Basically Just Stopped. I Turned It Off And Let It Sit A Bit And Then It Restarted And The Warning Light Was Off And Drove Fine. One Month Later This Happend Again In Town And Approximately At The Same Speed. I Figured I Would Have Them Check It As The Owners Manual Stated To Do If It Happened More Than Once When I Got My Oil Changed. About 3 Weeks After The 2nd Incident And 2 Months After The 1st, I Was On The Interstate Going 65 Mph And The Light Came On And It Was As If I Was Not Getting Any power, The Accelerator Didnt Do Anything And I Had To Pull Over To The Shoulder In Heavy Traffic. Again I Turned The Car Off Let It Sit A Bit And Continued On. My Dealership Is 10 Miles From My Home, As I Was Taking The Car In To Get Checked And The Oil Changed The Incident Happened 2 Times In This 10 Mile Distance In Interstate Traffic And Again I Had To Pull Off Onto The Shoulder In Heavy Traffic Just To Get To Dealership. It Happened 3 Times In A 3 Day Period. They Said This Was Not Covered Under The powertrain Warranty And My Car Only Has 54000 Miles On It And It Was 500.00 To Fix.

My Wife Was Driving And I Was Her Passenger On Miller Park Highway On The 18th When All Of A Sudden The Car Jerks Forward On Us, It Starts Sputtering Like It Was Going To Choke Out, My Wife Then Tried To Get On The Should When She Noticed That The Cars Accelerator Went All The Way To The Floor Without Any Response From The Car. Traffic Was Flying By Us As The Cars Engine Brake Continued To Slow Us Way Way Down. We Were Able To Use The Brakes. My Wife Finally Got Over To The Side, Turned On Her Hazards And Turn Off The Car. We Both Sat On The Side Off Roadway And I Had To Calm Down My Wife Due To The Fact Hat She Thought She Was Going To Be In An Accident. After A Few Minutes We Turned On The Car And The “wrentch” Alert Re-set Itself And We Were Able To Drive. My Wife And I Used To Feel Safe In Our ford fusion, But Unfortunately Now We Don’t Have Any Safe Feelings After Everything That Our Car Has Gone Through ( Blew Out Engine Due To Failed Bearings, The Trans Slips All The Time On Us, Etc Etc ). We Both Truely Loved This Car, But Now……

While Traveling Along A 2 Lane Route, At Approximately 55 Mph, The power In The Car Just Died. The Throttle Would Not Propel The Vehicle, There Was No Accelaration Available And Luckily I Was Able To Shift The Vehicle Away From Congested Traffic. The Wrench Lights Were Flashing, The Car Sputtered While This Started Or Occurred But When I Pressed The Throttle The Car Did Not Respond At All And The Car Came To A Stop. I Attempted To Press The Gas Several Times But Again The Car Did Not Respond And Was Dead (the Car Was Still On Just It Would Not Move). I Then Turned The Car Off, Waited A Few Moments, Then Tried To Start It Again, It Sputtered But Started About 20-30 Seconds Into My Attempt. Once I Started It, I Engaged The Throttle While In Park And It Responded, I Then Put The Car In Drive And It Drove Normally For The Remaining 10 Minutes Of My Drive.

Driving Down A Major Highway At Approximately 75mph. Suddenly Lost power And Engine Went To Idle. Coasted Up An Exit Ramp And Fortunately Made It To The Top And Was Able To Coast Down To A Safe Locations To Stop. If I Had Not Made It To The Crest Of The Ramp, The Ramp Was Such That I Was Around A Blind Corner With No Shoulder And Would Have Very Likely Been Hit If Another Car Exited. The Car Was Towed To A Repair Shop And I Am Being Told It Is A Faulty Throttle Body Assembly Which Is Occuring In Very Many ford fusions Around The Country. *js

I Was Driving In The Fast Lane And My 2011 fusion Went Into “limp Mode” By The Grace Of God I Was Able To Get Across The Freeway And Down The Off Ramp To A Safe Place. I Was Unaware Of What “limp Mode” Was At The Time So I Had It Towed To The Dealer And Within A Few Hours I Was Notified That It Needed A New Throttle Body. I Had Just Got My Car Back It Had Been In At The Dealer Getting The Entire Ac System Replaced And Now This. The Worst Part Is I Was Informed That The Throttle Body Is On Back Order And It’ll Hopefully Be In Sometime Next Month. Although The Dealership Is Doing Their Best To Take Care Of Us, Making Sure My Rental Is Covered And All I’m Still Concerned. I Had My 2 Year Old With Me, This Could Have Ended Very Bad. I Think I Want To Trade My Car In, I Mean I Love It And All But In The Last Month I’ve Replaced The Battery, The Entire Ac System And Now This…i’ve Only Got 29k Miles On It. *js

affic Engine Just Quit Again, Came To Stop And Was Able To Restart. Next Day Decided To Try To Drive To Dealer. Engine Quit 3 More Times While Driving To Local ford Dealer. They Said They Could Not Even Look At It For 6 Days. Drove Home, Engine Stopped One More Time. I Finally I Had It Towed To Dealer 30 Miles Away. Good News: They Quickly Diagnosed As A Throttle Body Assembly Bad News It Would Take 3-4 Weeks For Them To Obtain Part As So Many, Many fords Were Experiencing The Same Problem..i Had To Rent A Vehicle ..very Dangerous Situation And This Should Absolutely Be A Recall From ford. I Have Gotten No Where With The Dealer Or So Called “customer Service”..i Was Told By The 800 Cs Dept That They Had Never Heard Of This Problem. I Go On-line And Find Hundreds And Hundreds Of Complaints With The Exact Same Issue. I Want Reimbursement (i Have All My Out Of Pockets Costs And Receipts) And A Formal Apology. *js

I’ve Been Having Issues With The Vehicle Losing All Throttle Response While Driving, And It’s Almost Caused A Few Accidents. It Throws Two Codes, P2111 And P2112. I Took It To The Dealership Where I Purchased It And They Said The Throttle Body (9e926)-the Entire Unit Needs To Be Replaced Because The Faulty Sub-system Within The Unit Is Sealed And Can’t Be Replaced Individually. They Also Told Me The Item Is On National Back Order And There Are No Dates Of Release For This Part As Of Today. *js

While Driving My 2011 ford fusion Through An Intersection It Cut Off Speed And Throttle Control Abruptly. No Accident But This Issue Left The Possibility For One To Happen. I Was Able To Pull The Car Over After Shutting It Off And Starting It Several Times. Left The Car Off For About 10 Minutes And It Started And Was Able To Drive Again. Made It To An Autozone And Found Out It Was Throwing A Cel Of P2111. For The Throttle Body. The Car Had To Be Towed To The Local ford Dealership.

At 6:55am On Interstate I-70 East In Kc Mo I Was Driving In The Fast Lane At The Correct Speed Of 65 Mph On My Way To Work And My Wrench Light Came On And The Next Thing I Knew My Car Started Down Shifting And Shaking Unt
il It Came To A Complete Stop. I Put On My Hazards But Was Scared For My Life Cause Of The Very Heavy Traffic And I Had A Semi Truck Behind Me. I Couldn’t Get Over Because Of The Heavy Traffic And How Fast My Car Went From 65 To Zero In Minutes. Once I Came To A Full Stop, I Shut My Car Off And Turned It Back On Which At That Time It Acted Funny But Then I Was Able To Make It To Work.i Am A Mother Of 3 Children And At That Moment My Life Flashed Before My Eyes. This Is A Very Serious Matter. I Called My Dealership Blue Springs ford And Told Them About It And They Said They Have Been Getting Alot Of Complaints On That Issue. He Said It’s More Than Likely The Throttle System And That There Are No Recalls Yet. My Question Is Does Someone Have To Die Before They Make This An Issue????? I Almost Got Hit By 3 Cars And A Semi. Please Help.. This Is My Second Complaint About This Issue. First One Was Feb. 25th, 2012. Thank You, *tr

I Pulled Out Of My Driveway And Made It About 40 Yards When The Car Lurched Twice And Shut Off. I Let It Sit For A Few Minutes And Started It Back Up. Was Able To Go About A Quarter Of A Mile And It Died Again. I Called A Tow Truck Because I Was Too Afraid To Try To Drive It Anywhere. Luckily I Was In My Neighborhood And Was Not On A Busy Road Or A Highway Like So Many Others Have Complained About. I Was Also Very Fortunate That I Did Not Have My Children With Me – One Who Is Currently Recovering From Surgery And Cannot Walk. After Doing Research And Finding The Very Common Issues With The fusion, I Asked Them To Check The Throttle When Running The Diagnostics. Sure Enough, That Was The Reason. $450+ After The Repairs And The Tow. My Car Only Has 41,000 Miles On It, But Is Unfortunately Outside Of The Warranty Period. ford Should Step Up And Pay For These Repairs Due To The Dangerous And Fatal Issues That This Problem Can Cause. I’m Very Nervous About This Issue And Am Shocked That There Is Not A Recall After So Many Reported Incidents. I’m Considering Selling This Car – I Planned To Keep It For Many Years, But My Safety And My Families Is Much More Important. I Would Urge That There Be A Recall On This Extremely Serious And Dangerous Problem Being Experienced So Frequently. *tr

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 2011 fusion 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

My Wife Was Driving 65 Mph On A Very Busy Los Angeles Area Freeway Around 4:45 In The Afternoon When Her Vehicle Came To A Grinding Halt. The Car Went From 65 Mph To A Complete Stop In About 30 Yards! She Said All She Heard Was A Loud Grinding Sound And The Screeching Of The Tires. Luckily, The Six Vehicles Behind Her Were Able To Stop, Avoiding A Chain Reaction Accident. The Car Has Been At The Dealership Since November 4, 2013 When The Incident Happened. When I Spoke To The Technician, He Mentioned That The Transmission “disintegrated” Internally And The Only Two Options We Had Were To Rebuild The Transmission Part By Part, Or Order A Whole New Transmission. The Vehicle Is Not Even Three Years Old! This Was Not The First Time This Happened. On October 2, 2013, She Was About To Enter The Same Busy Freeway And The Vehicle Came To A Stand-still At The Intersection. None Of The Gears Worked. After Turning The Vehicle On-and-off A Few Times And Shifting The Gear Stick Back-and-forth, The Vehicle Once Again Was Able To Move. Can You Please Look Into This Issue As I Am Greatly Concerned For The Safety Of My Family Now That This Incident Put My Wife’s Life In Danger? God Forbid This Happen Again In Front Of A Fully Loaded Semi Or Other High Profile Vehicle That Would Not Be Able To Stop In Time. Do You Recall The ford Explorer Rollover Mishaps? *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

My 2011 ford fusion Sport Awd Lost power On The Pittsburgh Parkway After Leaving A Hockey Game Last Night. I Was Driving, And Without Warning The Car Lost All power. The Wrench Light Came On In The Dash. This Is The Second Time It Happened In Less Than 2 Weeks, With The Same Thing Happening The First Time. As My Speed Lowered, I Tried Crossing 2 Lanes To Get To The Side Of The Road. I Put The Car In Neutral, Shut The Key Off, And Tried Restarting The Car With No Luck. (this Worked The First Time). I Finally Got To A Berm, Put The Car In Park, Prayed, And It Restarted After The Second Try.
