I Was Traveling On Interstate10 Westbound At 65-70mph And My Car Slowly Descended Speed As I Accelerated! Cars Behind Me Became Dangerously Close To My Bumper! I Then Turned On My Hazard Lights And Pulled Over To The Right Shoulder And Called Roadside Assistance. Thank God I Was Not Hit By An 18 Wheeler! The ford Dealership, Where I Purchased The Car In March Of 2013, Said It Was Due To A Bad ‘throttle Body Unit.’ I Asked How Long Was It Bad Bc I Just Bought The Car 5 Months Ago! The Rep Said He Didn’t Know But Now The Throttle Body Is Out! I Had To Pay The Daily ‘taxes’ On The Rental Car The Dealership Gave Me Although I Didn’t Think That Was Fair Bc It Was Their Fault That Part Went Bad And It Was Covered Under My Certified Pre-owned Warranty! I Had A $100 Deductible Warranty/policy. *tr

For Several Months, My 2012fordfusion Would Occasionally Have A Power Steering Failure. Restarting The Vehicle Would Solve This. However, Today, The Power Steering Failure Is Not Going Away. My Hud Reads “power Steering Assist Fault” And “service Advancetrac” I Will Be Taking It To Get Serviced At My First Opportunity. Searching The Internet Implies That This Is A Nearly Ubiquitous Problem. *js

Service Advance Track Light Came On, Power Steering Disabled And Traction Control Disabled. Making Turn Onto Side Street Incident Occurred. No Accident Involved. First Time A Simple Turn Of The Key Fixed The Problem Now It Is Completely Disabled. Took To Dealer They Confirmed It As The Power Steering Gear Assembly On The Advance Track System. Part Cost From ford $900. Outrageous For A Well Maintained 2012 With 40,000 Miles. Please Research Dealer Said They Had Numerous Issues With This… Thank You *tr

I Was Turning Onto The Street At About 25 Mph And As I Approached My Home, The Advance Trac System Light Came On And Then The Service Power Steering Now Light Came On. Steering Wheel Locked Up As I Tried To Turn Into The Driveway And I Ran Over The Cable Box On The Curb Because It Was Hard To Turn At That Point. Prior To This Incident, There Were Problems With Air Pressure In The Tires At Least Three Times. Light Continually Came On Indicating Low Tire Pressure. Car Was Purchased On November 2, 2013. Dealership Offered The Extended Warranty, We Signed Papers For It. When It Came Time To Use It, The Warranty Was Not There. We Didn’t Sign Any Cancellation Papers For It. Now We Have To Deal With A Bogus Dealership/finance Company And Pay For A Part That May Or May Not Be Needed. *tr

He Said Car Fixed By Changing The Rack And Pinion Gear Assembly W/electric Steering Motor (ford Part Number: Ae5z-3504-ce).

The Advance Trac Power Steering On My 2012fordfusion Cut Out In The Middle Of A Left Hand Turn Leaving A Traffic Light. It Had Done This Once Before, A Year Prior At Around 34000 Miles While It Was Still Under Warranty, And The Dealership Sent Me Away Telling Me It Was An Isolated Incident As The Steering Recovered When I Turned The Vehicle On And Off. This Time, When I Reset It, It Cut Out Again Driving Through The Parking Lot At The Shopping Center I Was At Less Than 500 Yards Travelled Later. This Time When I Took The Vehicle In For Repair They Acknowledged The Issue Was Real And Claim The Entire Steering Column Needs Replaced Or This Will Continue To Happen. They Will Not Cover It Under Warranty Despite The Fact I Had Made A Claim Related To This Exact Issue While It Was Under Warranty Previously. The Steering Has Thankfully Only Cut Out For Me At Low Speeds And In Places I Was Able To Quick
ly And Easily Pull Over Even Without Power Steering. If This Were To Occur At Higher Speeds Or In Places I Was Less Able To Pull Over I Am Not Sure I Could Have Maneuvered The Vehicle Safely For Any Extended Amount Of Time.

I Was Driving Downhill At A Steady 60 Mph With No Turns And Got A Error Message On The Dashboard To “service Power Steering Now” And “service Advancetrac Now”. The Tow Was Covered Under Roadside Assistance, However The Estimate For This Fix Has Not Yet Been Received. For A Brand New Vehicle Purchased With 0 Miles, This Sort Of Problem Has Been Common Among Other Vehicles And Deserves A Recall. Had I Not Known What To Do Given The Situation, There Could Have Been A Very Bad Accident.
