Drove My Brand New 2011fordfusion With 5,000 Miles On It On Vacation. The Trip Was Approx 400 Miles. During The Trip I Drove The Car, And One Afternoon The Service Power Steering Light Came On, And The Advance Track Warning Came On As Well. By The Time I Made It Back To The Place I Was Staying The Vehicle Had No Steering And Had To Be Towed To The Nearest ford Dealer. It Was Returned To Me The Next Day And The Service Manager Said It Was “all Set”, Although When I Drove Away The Steering Still Felt “off” To Me. I Was Almost Home From My Trip And The Lights Lit Up Again, The Car Became Increasingly Difficult To Steer, So Even Though It Was Saturday I Drove It Directly To A ford Dealer Near My Home And Left It There, By The Time I Parked It The Steering Was Gone Again. Car Is At ford Dealer And I Am Waiting For A Status. *kb
