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

Started To Drive And Suddenly Error Light Message Of Power Steering Assist Needs Serviced, And There Was No Power Steering. Luckily I Was Going At A Low Rate Of Speed And Was Not On A Major Road At The Time. Drove Car With No Power Steering For Approx 1.5 Miles, Pulled Over Turned Car Off And Then Back On And Error Was Gone And The Power Steering Seemed Fine Again. Took Car To The Dealership Today And They Cannot Get The Issue To Happen Again? They State ford Has Not Issued Any Technical Bulletins Or Recalls About This, However In Researching On-line It Seems This Has Been A Common Issue For Other fordfusion Owners. *tt

Yesterday, As I Was Driving Up An On Ramp, My Advance Trac Light And Alarm Came On And The Power Steering Failed. Steering Was Very Difficult As The Steering Wheel Was Basically Frozen. I Was Able To Pull Off To The Side Of The Road.i Turne
d The Car Off And Back On And Everything Seemed To Go Back To Normal And The Power Steering Worked. Today I Took It To A Dealer To Get It Repaired. At First They Told Me My Car Must Have Stalled While I Was Driving And They Replaced The Throttle Body. I Insisted The Car Did Not Stall Or Turn Off Or Decelerate And That Only The Power Steering Was Not Working. I Left The Dealership. Later In The Day They Contacted Me After Discussing The Problem With Some Peers, They Realized What The Problem Was And Asked Me To Return. I Took It Back And They Told Me I Would Need The Power Steering Rack Replaced. I’m Really Surprised That There Has Not Been A Recall–in Doing A Google Search, I See That It Is Not A New Problem With fusions And It Has Happened To Quite A Few People. I Spoke To 2 Colleagues Today With The Same Car Who Also Had Their Power Steering Malfunction. *tr

I Was Told That The Purge Valve And Fuel Filler Pipe Had To Be Replaced. On 6/11/12, Picked Up My Vehicle From The Dealership And Was Charged Over $500 Dollars For The Service. 20 Minutes Later While Driving On I45 North At 65 Mph.

As Early As January This Year I Turned A Corner And The Power Steering Failed. I Parked The Car As I Had Arrived At My Destination And When I Restarted It The Steering Was Working Fine. This Has Happened At Least Three Times Since Then While I Was On The Highway. I Would Turn Off The Ignition For A Few Seconds And Turn It Back On Without Stopping And The Power Steering Would Return. Monday I Parked The Car At My Office And When I Restarted It I Got Two Alerts One Was For A Steering Fault And The Other Was For Advance Track Needs Service. I Got The Car To A Dealer Today And The Problem Can’t Be Repaired. The Steering Column Must Be Removed From The Car As The Dealer Is Not Allowed To Repair The Electronics. I Thought This Was A Minor Problem With A Sensor Receiving The Wrong Signal But ford Has Turned It Into A Major Repair Job. If This Problem Is Something That Could Happen To Any fusion It Could Be Very Dangerous As The Car Is Very Hard To Steer. The Computer Should Not Be Allowed To Switch Off The Power Steering While There Is Not A Problem With The Actual Power Steering Mechanism. *tr

I Was Driving Home On The Highway All Of A Sudden Power Steering Froze. Warning Light “service Advancetrac” And “power Steering Failure Came On. Next Day 8/8/12, Took It To The Dealership Where It Still Sits. Was Told That The Part That Is Bad (the Rack And Pinion) Is On Back Order. Was Just Told Today 8/17/12 That It Will Be October Before The Part Will Be Shipped. Called ford (company) And Was Told That My Case Was Made A Priority And I Would Have To Wait Until September 10th For A Follow Up (ridiculous). A Customer Who Is Spending This Kind Of Money Shouldn’t Have To Wait A Month To Get Help Or Wait Two Months To Have His/her Vehicle Fixed. As Of Next Thursday Aug. 23 It Will Be 16 Days Without My Car. I Will Then Send A Letter To The ford For A “last Chance To Repair My Car.” After That They Have 10 Days To Fix It. After Ten Days I Can Demand A Refund Or A New Car. If ford Doesn’t Comply Then I Can File A Suit Against ford According To The Mississippi Lemon Law (consumer Protection Division Of The Mississippi Attorney General’s Office) ford I Will See You In Court! Sincerely A Disappointed Customer. *tr

On 1/3/2012 I Was Driving At 40 Mph, And My Service Advance Track Light Came On. I Took My Car To The Dealer And They Told Me They Couldn’t Duplicate The Problem, They Also Told Me The Only Code They Could Retrieve From The Computer Analysis Was Related To The Car Being Started With An Unprogrammed Key. I Questioned Their Explanation, But Took The Car And Continued Driving It. Today 8/30/2012, I Was Driving On The Highway 65-70 Mph, A Service Advance Track And Power Steering Assist Fault Message Came On, And My Power Steering Quit Working!!! I Called The Dealer, Talked To The Service Manager, Explained The Problem, Told Him It Was The Second Time I Had Had The Issue, That I Considered It A Safety Issue, And That I Was Not Going To Leave The Dealership Without An Appropriate Resolution. He Told Me He Would Need To Keep My Car And Drive It For Several Days To See If He Could Recreate The Problem. He Further Told Me That If My Car Was Hooked Up To Diagnostics And Again Failed To Provide His Technician With A Repair Code That He Wouldn’t Be Able To Do Anything To Repair My Car Because ford Wouldn’t Pay Him To Repair It. Once On The Internet I Literally Found Hundreds Of The Exact Same Complaint, For 2010, 2011, 2012 fordfusions….all Levels Including Hybrids. I Also Found Similar Stories About Dealers Claiming To Need To Drive The Cars To Replicate The Problem, Dealers Claiming No Code Was Provided During Analysis, Dealers Admitting There Is A Problem, But Not Being Able To Fix The Car Because Apparently There Is A Large Back Order For The Part. Bottom Line, The Dealers Know It Happens, And What Is Causing It, Worse ford Knows They Have A Problem And What Is Causing It. My Young Daughter Is In My Car At Least 80% Of The Time. Come On ford, ford Dealers, And Nhtsa This Is A No Brainer. Get A Recall Going Now. Hello Steering!!! *tr

Beginning On Monday, September 10, 2012 Right Up Until This Morning, Thursday, September 13th, The Power Steering On My 2011fordfusion Has Locked Up Six Times. The First Occurrence Happened On Monday 9/10/2012 As I Was About To Turn A Corner At A Very Busy Intersection. I Was Going Approximately 30 Mph. As I Was About To Turn, Bells And Whistles Went Off, My Power Steering Failed And A Message On My Dash Board Read “service Advancetrac” And “power Steering Assist Failure.” The Steering Wheel Became Very Difficult To Maneuver – Basically Locked Up. Luckily I Was Able To Safely Pull Over To Where I Could Turn My Car Off, Take The Key Out Of The Ignition And Restart It To Unlock The Steering. Since Then, (3 Days Later) This Has Occurred Another Five Times. Not All Instances Have Been While Turning A Corner And It Happens At Random Speed. The Only Way I Can Unlock The Steering Is By Shutting The Car Off, Taking The Key Out Of The Ignition And Totally Restarting It. I Live In Houston, Tx And Spend Several Hours In My Car Each Day Just Commuting Back And Forth From Work Alone. I Am Truly Terrified Each Time I Get In My Car – Especially On The Interstates During Rush Hour. I Should Not Have To Feel Like This. This Is A Major Safety Issue And In My Opinion, ford Needs To Administer A Recall! I Have An Appointment Scheduled To Take My Car In But From Everything That I Have Read Online, The Parts That Are Needed To Remedy This Problem Are All On Back Order. Please Help! I Know There Are Several Others Out There That Are Dealing With This Safety Issue. Don’t Let It Get To The Point Of Someone Losing Their Life Or Someone Taking Another’s Life. Please Please Please Help!!!! [xxx] Information Redacted Pursuant To The Freedom Of Information Act (foia), 5 U.s.c. 552(b)(6). *tr

I Drove For Approx 5 Mins From My Home To A Local Store. When I Restarted The Car From The Store The Steering Wheel Was Almost Impossible To Turn. The Message “powersteering Assist Failure” Appeared. The Outside Temp Was Approx 20f. My Intention Was To Drive Slowly Back To My Home And Call Towing But I Decided To Restart The Car First. After Restarting The Steering Was Working Normally. After Reading Other Postings It Seems That This Type Of Failure Could Also Occur While Driving. This Would Pose An Extremely Dangerous Situation. I Will Contact My ford Dealership And Am Hopeful That They Are Able To Repair This Problem In A Permanent Fashion. Otherwise I Would Not Allow My Wife Or Kids To Drive This Car And Would Need To Escalate This Issue With ford. *tr

Seconds Later, The Warning Message Appeared That There Was A Power Steering Failure, Check The Advancetrac System. We Attempted To Turn The Car On And Off To No Avail. We Added 3 Bottles Of Power Steering Fluid And It Didn’t Seem To Fill Up The Tank Nor Did It Help The Power Steering. Car Was Towed To The Dealer, Where They Told Us The Rack And Pinion Needed To Be Replaced. *tr

About One Year Ago, The Power Steering Failed While Driving. After Turning Off The Vehicle And Restarting It, It Was Fine. It Happened Only A Few Times Within The Last Year. Just This Week Alone Now, At 35,000 Miles, It Has Happened Numerous Times. I’ve Stopped Driving It Due To This. I Live In A Busy City, And Should It Fail Again At Th

Myself Along With My Three Children Were Traveling On I-45 From Dallas To Houston. While Traveling 75mph, The Indicator Light For The Power Steer Assist Fault Came On Along With The Service Advancetrac. Once The Alarm Went Off, I No Longer Had Power Steering.

While Taking A Freeway Exit Ramp, An Alert Popped Up On My Dashboard And My Steering Immediately Became Labored. I Wasn’t Doing Anything Unusual At The Time, So My Immediate Assumption Was That I Had A Flat Tire. I Began To Slow As I Neared The Exit Ramp, And At This Point My Dashboard Showed A “power Steering Assist Fault” Error And A “service Advancetrac” Error Message, Which Resulted In The Loss Of All Power Steering. At This Point I Pulled Off The Highway And Into A Parking Lot, Shut Off My Car, And Let It Rest For Approximately 15 Minutes While I Read The ford Owner Guide For More Information. After Inspecting The Engine And Finding Nothing Unusual, I Started The Car And The Power Steering Had Returned. I Have Not Experienced This Issue Again And It Has Been 24 Hours, But I’m Still Weary Of Traveling At Higher Speeds Lest My Power Steering Suddenly Fail Again. *tr

In The Beginning While Driving I Had The Warning Light Of “power Steering Assist Failure” Come On, The Wheel Would Become Difficult To Turn So I Pulled Into The Shoulder And Turned Off The Vehicle To Check The Power Steering Fluid And When I Got Back In And Started The Vehicle It Would Reset And Work Fine. I Thought It Was A Fluke At First. Then It Happened Again A Few Weeks Later So I Called The ford Dealership, Spoke To The Service Manager Who Told Me They Wouldn’t Be Able To Figure Out What It Was If The Vehicle Didn’t Store A Code That It Would Be Best For Me To Bring It In Once The Warning Light Stayed On And It Wouldn’t Reset Itself. He Told Me This Because A Few Weeks Prior Same Thing Happened With The Wrench Warning Light And When I Took It In The Vehicle Didn’t Store A Code.. They Kept My Car For A Week And Couldn’t Figure It Out. I Had To Pay To Get My Vehicle Back. No Work Was Performed 2 Days Later Same Issue, I Have Since Fixed The Wrench Light Issue And Unable To Pay For The Power Steering Issue. These 2 Items Went Out When I Was On The Highway And Are Unsafe Conditions To Loose Acceleration On The Highway All Of A Sudden Is Not Good At All And To Have Power Steering Failure On A 2011 Vehicle Is Not Acceptable. *tr

My Power Steering Has Gone Out On 3 Separate Occasions Now. The First Incident Was June 26. I Had Parked The Car (pulled Over Because Of A Bad Rain Storm). When I Restarted The Car And Started To Pull Out Of The Parking Place, The Power Steering Assist Default Light Came On And It Became Extremely Difficult To Steer The Car. I Pulled Over Again, Turned Off The Engine For Several Minutes And When I Restarted It, The Default Light Was Off And It Was Fine. The Second Incident Occurred On June 28. Again, It Happened When I Started The Car. I Was Parallel Parked And When I Started The Car, The Power Steering Assist Default Light Came On And The Steering Was Again Very Difficult To Maneuver. I Turned The Engine Off For Several Minutes, Restarted And It Was Fine. The Third Incident Occurred Today, 7/4/2013, And This Time It Happened While I Was Driving. I Was Driving Approximately 45 Mph When The Power Steering Assist Default Light Came On Again. I Was Able To Pull Off Of The Highw
ay Safely. I Turned The Car Off For Several Minutes And Once Again, It Was Fine. However, To Just Suddenly Lose The Capability To Steer Is Quite Terrifying And Extremely Dangerous, Especially On A Highway. Since This Has Happened, I Have Done Some Research Online And This Power Steering Assist Default Seems To Be Quite A Common Problem With fordfusion Owners- Especially 2010-2012 Models. ford Needs To Address This Issue Before There Is A Really Serious Accident. I’ve Only Made A Few Payments On My Car And I Am Now Afraid To Drive It- It Is Not Safe!! *tr

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 Out Of A Parking Lot And Turning Onto A Main Road, The Power Steering Became Extremely Heavy And Difficult. I Heard Beeping Inside The Car And The Message- Power Steering Assist Failure Light Came On.

I Was Told They My Rotors Needed To Be Machined, & That Was Covered Under Warranty. It Was Not Even A Month Later When I Could Feel Slight Vibration In My Steering Wheel Again, & Would Progress Until I Finally Had To Bring In Again To Be Serviced With Several Other Problems W/ My Car. On 11/9/12 (32,651 Miles) (1.) Heavy Vibration, They Replaced Rotors. (2) My Advance Trac And Check Braking System Message Kept Coming Up, They Told Me It Was Due To Low Battery Voltage. (3)vehicle Stalls When Starting, They Replaced Battery. (4) Skipping Gears & Stalling, Reprogrammed Pcm. On 6/15/13 My Car Loses All Power And Dies In The Middle Of Highway @ Night As I Was Backing Out Of A Private Drive W/ My Daughter & Her Friend In Backseat, I Had To Put It Back In Gear & Jiggle Key To Turn Off, Restart Car, & Be Able To Drive Off All The While Cars Running Off The Road To Keep From Hitting Me! Brought My Car In For Service Finally Again 7/11/12(44158 Miles) (waited 2 Weeks Til They Could Get Me In To Diag)with Recurring Problems Above + Power Loss! (1) Car Sputters/gears Skip/stalling/loses Power, & They Find A Bug Mass Air Flow(as They Said) But 1st Told Me Tb Then Said No & As Far As Losing Power They Have No Idea! (2)vibration In Steering, Rotors Need To Be Machined Again! Never Had This Much Work With Rotors On Any Vehicle. Oh And My Whole Steering Rack Assembly Needs To Be Replaced @ 44,158 Miles!!! ford Should Not Be Making Cars That You Can Not Get At Least 100,000 Miles Before A $2,000+ Service Needs To Be Done On Car! I Told ford Even If They Fixed What They Said Is Wrong With My Car Today, They Could Not Give Me $1,000,000 To Put Myself Or My Child In It Ever Again!

Power Steering Stopped Working, And Brakes Acting Up, Very Hard To Drive To The Side Of The Road And Stop. Warning Lights Came On For Power Steering Default And Service Advancetrac. Took My fusion To The ford Dealer In Grand Haven,mi. To See What The Problem Was. Without Looking At My Car They Said They Couldn’t Help Me, Came Back To My Daughters Home. This Has Happened 3 Times In The Last 2 Weeks, When I Shut The Car Off For Awhile, It Seems To Correct Itself. But There Is No Way Of Telling When It Will Happen Again. I’m Visiting From Pennsylvania In Michigan, And I Guess I’m Suppose To Take The Chance Of Driving My Car The 700 Miles To Pa Without It Happening Again!! Considering All The Comments I Have Seen On The Internet About The Same Issues With Other fusions, It Would Seem To Me That ford Might Take A Look At The Problem And Help Their Customers.

I Wanted To Contact You About A Serious Safety Issue In My 2011fordfusion. I Took It In For Service In January 2013 And Was Told That The Throttle Body Needed Replaced After My Car Stalled A Few Times. I Was Told Then The Throttle Body Was Backordered. I Tried Again In June And Was Told That This Is A Common Problem And They Are Still Backordered. After That, I Was Told That I Could Simply Take The Key Out And Put It Back In After It Stalled And It Would Be Fine. And They Were Backordered From ford. On July 11th, The Car Stalled At The Corner Of I-70 And I-270 In Columbus While Traveling At 65mph. I Pulled Off To The Side Of The Road And Reset The Car.

My Wife Was Pulling Into The Parking Lot Where She Works And The Power Steering Quit. On The Readout It Said Power Steering Assist Fault And Service Advance Trac. Also The Advance Trac Light Came On. With Difficulty She Finished Parking The Car And Called Me. She Then Shut The Car Off And Went In To Work. I Drove To Where She Parked And Checked Under The Hood For The Power Steering. Could Not Find It So Looked In Manual And Found That Power Steering Assist Is Electronic And Not Hydraulic. I Started Car And Everything Worked Normal Including Steering. Looked Online And Found Many Other Complaints Of Same Problem On 2011fusions. Plugged A Diagnostic Tool In Under The Dash And It Showed No Fault Codes Stored. Took To A ford Dealer The Following Week After Discussing The Problem With Them. They Kept It 4 Days And Could Not Get The Problem To Come Up Again. Was Told To Drive It Until It Came Up Again. Picked Up The Car On Friday The 26th And Drove It. The Steering Went Out Again On Sunday The 28th Of July When I Was Driving About 20 Mph. Pulled Over To Side Of Road And Shut Off. Restarted And Everything Was Normal Again. Talked To 2 Other ford Dealers And Was Told To Bring It In When It Happens Again Without Shutting Off So They Can Check It When It Is Happening. (but Of Course It Has To Be A Day And Time They Are Open) I Feel This Is A Safety Issue. My Wife Drives This To Work Daily And Has To Travel Over Roads Where There Is No Place To Pull Off To Reset. Also It Would Be Very Difficult For Her To Keep Steering While She Is Continuing To Drive. I Called ford Customer Service And Filed A Complaint But With No Immediate Resolve. *tr

I Was Driving On The Expressway Early This Morning Traveling At ~70 Miles An Hour. Without Warning The Power Steering Ceased To Work And I Got A Warning That There Was A Power Assist Fault And To Service Advanctrac. If I Would Have Been Taking A Curve At That Exact Moment The Results Could Have Been Catastrophic. After Making It Off The Expressway I Was Able To Turn The Car Off And Then Back On And All Was Fine And The Power Steering Was Once Again Working. My Concern At This Point Is That I Never Know, Moving Forward, If And When This Issue May Occur Again. Based On Some Online Research I See Many Other fusion Owners Complaining Of This Exact Issue. Please Don’t Wait For Someone To Die Before Taking Action And Forcing ford To Analyze Root Cause. *tr

On Three Separate Occasions Within The Last Two Weeks, (two While Pulling Out Of My Driveway, And Once While Leaving Work), My Steering Has “locked” On Me. The Code That Appeared On The Dash Was Power Steering Assist Fault. Not Being Too Sure Of What This Was About We Took It To The Dealer Who Told Us It Was The Rack And Pinion That Had Gone Out. The Dealer Then Stated In Order To Fix It The Rocker Arms As Well As The Rack And Pinion Would Have To Be Replaced To The Tune Of 2700 In Repairs, That Was Not Including Labor And Tax. While Our Vehicle Is Still Under Warranty, I Feel This Should Be Part Of The Power Train, As Without Steering You Cannot Drive. This Is Also A Huge Safety Issue. I Cannot Imagine How This Would Have Gone If I Had Been In Traffic, Let Alone If My Children Had Been In The Car. I Have Seen How Many Complaints There Is About This Situation. When Will There Be Results? *tr

I Was Driving About 40 Mph When The Service Advance Trac Alarm Came On. It Said Service Power Steering. When I Came To A Stop And Turned Off The Vehicle, My fusion Had No Power Steering Whatsoever And I Could Not Even Turn The Wheel. So I Had It Towed To The Nearest ford Dealership. They First Replaced The Steering Gear Assembly Which Three Days Later It Went Out Again! I Took It Back To The Dealer Where They Said It Was A Glitch In The Sensor So They Manually Reset Everything. Well That Fixed The Problem For Maybe 2 Days, And It Went Out On Me Again. Also, There Was A Piece Of Plastic That The Dealership Failed To Put On Correctly, Thus Resulting In The Piece Of Plastic Dragging The Ground And Broke Off While I Was Driving. Nearly Scared Me To Death. They Replaced The Abs Module And That Also Did Not Fix The Problem. So I Am Now At A Standstill And I Refuse To Be Humiliated With This Situation. ford Has To Fix My Car Or Give Me A New One Because This Is Completely Ridiculous. If This Isn’t A Recall On This Model Then It Should Be Because There Is No Way This Car Should Have This Problem In The Three Years I Have Had It. I Am Very Frustrated With This Dealership And Also With ford. Help! *jb

I Pulled To The Side Of The Road To Check Any Fuses But Were All Good. I Then Tried To Figure Out How To Reset It. I Tried A Few But The One That Work For Me Was Turning The Car Off Then Turn The Key To The On Position Put It In Neutral While In Neutral Turn The Key To The Off Position Then Put The Car In Park Then Start It Up And It Worked. Then It Started Doing It Again. I Think This Is A Very Dangerous Component To Put On A Car, Because It Goes Out While Driving. *jb

Backing Out Of My Garage, Started Hearing Warning Sounds Going Off, Message Board Scrolled The Following: Power Steering System Fault. I Was Unable To Steer My Vehicle At All. I Had To Have The Car Towed To A Car Repair Shop. After A Few Days Of Trying To Get The Computer To Read My Car To See What Was Wrong, The Car Repair Shop Had To Tow My Car Over To A ford Dealer Who Was Able To Tell The Mechanic That My Entire Steering System Was Out And Needed To Be Replaced. Not Only That, This Particular Part Can Only Be Purchased From ford And The Part Alone Cost $1105.26. This Is Very Much A Safety Issue And This Should Be Recalled. A Couple Of Days Prior To This Incident I Was Driving Down 24 Hwy Going Between 40 And 45 Mph When This First Occurred And I Finally Found Myself In The Middle Of A Heavily Traffic Area Not Able To Steer My Vehicle To The Left Or Right. I Was Concerned With Getting Off The Road In A Safe Manor. Thankfully I Was Able To Coast My Vehicle To A Stopping Point, Read My Manual And Discover A Resetting Processing. It Worked And I Was Able To Make It Home. Unfortunately, The Reset Process Did Not Work This Last Time. I Contacted ford And They Did Not Offer Any Help, Only Stated There Was No Recall On This Device And That My Warranty Was No Longer Valid And I Had No Extra Coverage. ford Should Be Forced To Recall This System Since So Many People Around The Country Are Having An Issue With This System. There Is No Way The Steering System Should Go Out Within 60 Thousand Miles. I Would Appreciate An Investigation Into This Issue And A Response To My Complaint. *tr

Argued With Them And Told Them They Were Wrong And Refused Repair But Was Still Charged A Diagnosis Fee. Brought Car Home And Took The Wheels Off And Cleaned Every Thing That Has To Do With Steering And Traction. I Now Have Power Steering.

I Then Took It To The Shop Where Only A ford Mechanic Can Order The Part To The Price Of $1,300 Not Including Labor. I Thought I Was Buying A Reliable Car But I Was Wrong. What Car’s Power Steering Goes Out Shortly After The Warranty Does And Has To Be Taken To The Dealership Where Only A ford Mechanic Can Fix It? A fordfusion. It Looks Like They Wanted More Money An

While Driving The Warning Message “service Power Steering Now” Appeared At Which Time The Electric Power Steering Went Out Making The Car Almost Inoperable.

I Did Research And Was Told It Is Electric Steering And Will Cost Roughly $2000.00 To Fix. This Car Is Too New To Have That Kind Of Problem. During My Search I Have Found Many People Are Experiencing The Exact Same Thing And There Was An Actual Recall For The 2013 fusions With This Problem. Not Sure Why The 2011 Hasn’t Also Been Recalled. I Am Still Researching That Because I Definitely Can’t Afford $2,000 Out Of Pocket Expense On My Vehicle Right Now. *tr

Power Steering Went Out On The Vehicle On Several Occasions, Both While Driving And Sitting At A Stop. The Steering Wheel Would Not Be Able To Turn, Thus The Vehicle Would Not Turn. “power Steering Assist Failure” Warning Came On During All Occasions. Power Steering Would Come Back On After Turning The Car Off, But Eventually Totally Went Out. The Vehicle Had To Be Towed To A Local ford Dealership So The Electronic Power Steering Rack Could Be Replaced. Luckily My Wife Was Not In Heavy Traffic During Occasions When Power Steering Went Out, Otherwise The Situations Could Have Been Very Bad. Our Toddler Was In The Car During All Occasions As Well. I Have Seen Countless Other Stories On Online Forums About The Power Steering Failing In 2011fordfusions. There Has Just Been A Massive Recall For Gm Vehicles Involving The Electronic Power Steering, Perhaps They Are Related. Please Help In This Matter. ford Needs To Address This Problem And Issue A Recall. Hopefully ford Isn’t Hiding And Running From This Problem Due To Money, As We Had To Pay $1,800 For The Repair.

Driving In Rain Approximately 40 Mph On Two Lane Blacktop Highway Chiming Started Then Error Codes, “service Advancetrac” & “service Power Steering Now” Warnings Displayed On Dash. Steering Became Extremely Hard To Maneuver Continued To Drive The Vehicle Approximately 10 More Minutes. I Then Turned The Vehicle Off And Let The Vehicle Sit For An Hour. I Never Pulled Key From Ignition. I Restarted The Vehicle, Steering Became Even More Difficult To Maneuver. I Drove My Car Approximately 2 More Miles And Then Shut The Vehicle Off Again. I Waited Approximately 2 More Hours This Time Before Restarting My Vehicle. The Steering Wheel Became Almost Impossible To Turn. I Experienced An Extremely Unsafe Vehicle While Driving Approximately 25 To 35 Mph For 12 Miles To Reach My Destination. This Vehicle Was Then Parked And Will Be Towed To A Repair Facility To Trouble Shoot This Safety Issue. I Have Two Young Daughters That Are In This Vehicle On A Regular Basis And I Am Tremendously Concerned For Their Safety And That Of Others Who Could Be Harmed If This Incident Should Happen Again While Driving. I Drive 900 Miles A Week To And From My Job. I Can Not Morally Put Others At Risk And After Seeing So Many Complaints Online, I Believe That This Is A Severe Safety Issue That ford Motor Company Should Be Financially Responsible For And Address In A Timely Fashion By Recalling And Repairing Any Necessary Parts And Labor Before A Serious Injury Or Fatality Occurs.

Within Months Of Having My Brand New fusion, I Experienced Power Steering Failure Where The Wheel Locked Up And The Car Had To Be Turned Off To Reset The Steering. This Occurred In Parking Lots, At Speeds Of 30mph And Even On The Interstate Going 65mph. I Recently Had A Scary Incident Of Losing Steering Control On The Interstate, So I Took It In To The ford Dealership And Was Told It Was $1700 To Fix, Even Though It Was Because It Was Originally Missing A Part? Not Sure How That’s My Fault, Especially Seeing How Many Other Compliants There Are With The Same Problem. I Paid For The Replacement And Have Had No Problems Since, But I Saw Today ford Recalled Some Cars For This Same Problem But Not The 2011fordfusion! This Is Obviously A Problem They Need To Address. I Asked The Man Who Fixed My Car If He’d Seen This Before And He Said At Least 6 Before Me… So Hopefully ford Realizes This Problem Before People Have To Be Injured.

Was Driving In An Area Of Stop Lights And Low Speed, Service Power Steering Came On As Well As Service Advancetrac. Did Not Know At The Time What It Meant, Parked Car And Came Back, Had No Steering. Had The Vehicle Towed To Closest ford Dealership And Was Estimated At $2000 Repair, Had It Towed To My Personal Mechanic Who Has Serviced My Car Since I Purchased It. He Fixed The Part For Significantly Less And With A Warranty. I Received My Car May 22nd. Last Night, June 2nd Was Driving In Low Speed Area When Same Warnings Came On, Decided To Drive It 2 Hours Home So My Mechanic Can Investigate Further With The Dealership I Bought The Vehicle From To See What The Problem Is. I Had Not Even Had My Car For Two Full Weeks. Very Frustrated With The ford Dealership Saying That It Was My Fault For Not Bringing The Car In As Soon As The Warnings Came On The Screen, They Also Accused It Of Being My Fault For “ignoring” A Check Engine Light When My Mechanic Always Checks It And Clears It But It Continues To Appear, It Is A “evap” Code, Meaning I’m Not Getting The Maximum Mileage That The Car Was Designed For But It Does Not Affect The Performance Of The Car. I Have Repeatedly Confirmed This As To Avoid Any Car Troubles Since I Am Living 2 Hours From Home At School. Very Unprofessional Customer Service And Have Decided That I Will Not Be Buying ford Vehicles In The Future. Very Disappointed Because I Enjoyed Driving This Car.

Please Don’t Do A Recall On Just The Floormats…obviously There Is A Huge Flaw In The Steering As Well And We Don’t Have $2000 To Just Shell Out To Get It Fixed.

When I First Started My Car, I Notice The Chimes Going Off Letting Me Know It Was An Error Or Warning. I Noticed In The Dash It Read Power Steering Assist Fault. I Noticed The Steering Wheel Was Very Hard To Turn. I Immediatley Turned Off The Car And Restarted And The Message Went Away. The Very Next Morning The Exact Same Thing Happened. So Four Days Later It Happened Only To Find Out Me Restarting Would Not Make The Message Go Away. So Now I Am Without Power Steering And I Have Read So Many Complaints Of The Same And Nothing Is Being Done To Correct The Issue. Nothing Will Happen Unless Someone Gets Hurt Or God Forbid Killed. Its Too Late Then. ford Does Not Want To Be Responsible.

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

I Bought A Used 2011fordfusion Sel And 58 Days Later The Power Steering Went Out As I Was Backing Out Of The Driveway. It Currently Has 24,000 Miles On It And Is In Excellent Condition. I Was Lucky That I Was Close To Home And My Wife Wasn’t Driving It Because I Had To Muscle It Back Onto The Driveway, As The Steering Was Very Stiff. I Took It To The Dealer And They Want To Replace A Part ( I’ll Find Out Tomorrow What Part It Is) But They Did Say It Could Cost About $1600. This Seems To Be A Common Problem With The fusions And A Potentially Dangerous One. If The Power Steering Goes Out At High Speeds Driven By A Small Person It Is A Disaster In The Making. Please Help Resolve This Problem!

I Was Entering A Highway During Rush Hour And Going About 10 Mph And The Power Steering Assist Fault Light Came On. Since I Was Stuck In Traffic I Was Forced To Enter The Highway For About 1/2 Mile With No Control Over My Steering. I Exited The Highway, Turned Off The Car For About 10 Min And Restarted. The Light Went Off And Power Steering Returned. From Reading Other Posts, This Sound Like I’m Not The Only One This Has Happened To. No Power Steering On A Busy Texas Highway During Rush Hour Is Pretty Scary.

About A Month Ago The Power Steering Went Out Completely And Hasn’t Come Back. It Is Difficult To Drive And Steer. Afraid To Drive It For Fear Of Crashing If Anything Else Goes Wrong While On The Highway. I Received The “customer Satisfaction Program” Recall For The Throttle Body – Which Did Not Fix The Steering Problem. In Addition To This Site, If You Google This Issue You Can Find Numerous Complaints For The Same Problem. I Contacted ford And Was Told They Do Not Have Any Issues With This Car, Complaints Or Recalls For Steering Problems. They Are Not Accepting Responsibility. Based On The Staggering Amount Of Complaints It Is Obviously A Manufacturer’s Defect And I Don’t Feel I Should Pay For The Repairs.

As I Was Driving My 2011fordfusion To Work This Morning, The Steering Wheel Started Shaking For The Last 15 Minutes Of The Drive. I Parked And Went Into Work. When I Started The Car Up After Work, I Had No Power Steering. I Purchased Some Power Steering Fluid, But Could Not Find Where To Put It In. Took The Car To The ford Dealership In Sarasota And They Said It Was A Rack And Pinion Failure And That Part Is Under Warranty But The Ruined Tires Are My Responsibility. The Tires Were Fine Yesterday And The Car Only Has 74,000 Miles.

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