Through The Rpm Increase The Vehicle Maintained The Previous 35-40mph Speed. Ultimately, Was Forced To Brake To Bring The Engine Rpms Down. *tr

While Driving To Work On The Highway 65-mph The Engine Shuts Off Without Warning, The Instrumental Panel Starts Acting Up As If You Are Turning On And Off The Key. They Found A Lose Wire To The Instrumental Cluster On The Second Time They Replaced The Instrumental Cluster. It Has Been Taken Back Six Times And Now The Dashboard Shuts Down And I Lose Lights, Signals, And Other Electronic Features. I Have Lost Power Steering And Brakes In Between. They Offered Me An Extended Warranty??? It Is A Shame That A Consumer Who Buys A Car From A Dealership Has To Go Through The Grinder Just To Get Out Of Their Lemon. I Just Want To Get Out Of This Vehicle. *tr

Ok, I Traded In My 2009 fusion 6 Cyl For The 2013 1.8 Ecco Boost. Obviously When I Test Drove It I Drove Under Normal Conditions. At Any Rate, When You Need To Pass And Step On The Gas Pedal The Car Hesitates And Seems To Have No Power At All. The Gas Miliage Is Around 22 Mile Per Gallon Highway. No Where Near What Was Advertised. I Was Told This Engine Was Comperable To My V6. No Way! Has Anyone Else Reported This Issue? In Addition The Sync System Keeps Freezing Up On Phone Calls. *tr

While Cruising At About 45mph The Car Suddenly Decelerated, The Orange Wrench Light Came On, And The Car Would Not Accelerate. While Idling, The Engine Was Shaking Abnormally. This Is The Third Time This Has Occurred, Once At 40mph Cruising, And Once At About 65mph Accelerating. All Three Incidents Have Happened About 200 Miles Apart. All Three Times I Was (barely) Able To Pull Over And Restart The Vehicle. Each Time The Car Took Longer Than Usual To Turn Over. Previous To This, There Were Several Incidents When Downshifting From Overdrive Into A Passing Gear. When The Car Shifted Down, The Transmission Would Thump And Shift Abnormally Hard. The Orange Wrench Light Would Then Come On. I Could Still Accelerate But I Would Have The Same “hard” Shift Every Time I Accelerated Fast Enough To For The Automatic Transmission To Switch Into A Passing Gear. When Slowing Down To A Stop, The Car Would Surge Forward Each Time It Down Shifted. After A Restart The Problem Was Temporarily Remedied, Until I Tried To Accelerate While In Overdrive Again. *tr

I Was Driving To An Appointment, And Ran Late Because Of The Failure. I Stopped At A Stoplight, And Tried To Take Off, But Then The Car Went Into “limp Home” Mode. I Hobbled The Car Across The Intersection, And Then Began To Use My Obd Ii Code Reader That I Purchased For A Different Vehicle, And Read The Code. It Was P2011, And Cleared It The Car Ran Fine For A While, But The Problem Was Still There. I Went To The ford Dealership The Next Day, Purchased The New “updated” Throttle Body. I Got It Over To My Uncle’s Shop, Were I Replaced The Old Throttle Body With The New One. I Have Been Driving With The New Throttle Body, And Have Not Had Any Problems Since. *tr

I Was Driving My 2013 1.6 Liter fordfusion On 10/23/2013 And The Engine Overheated. My Vehicle Had To Be Towed To The Dealership. I Looked Up My Vin Number On ford Because After This All Happened I Heard About fusions Being Recalled For This Same Problem. According To ford My Vin Number My Was Not Under The Recalled fordfusions That Had The Overheating Problem. The Deal
ership Said That The Coolant Had Leaked Into The Engine And Had Caused It To Overheat. This Sounds Exactly Like The Recall To Me. I Had No Idea About The Recall Until After This Happen To Me So I Didn’t Get Out Of My Car. My Car Could Of Had An Engine Fire Like Some Of The Recalled Ones Have Had. I Am Very Upset With ford. I Believe That They Still Have A Problem And More fusions Need To Be Recalled. It Is Sad That ford Is Selling These Cars To People And They Could Still Be Unsafe. *tr

While Driving North On I-25 With Cruise Control Set At 75mph, Suddenly The Vehicle Stop Forward Acceleration And Instantly Began Decreasing Speed. Immediately, I Stepped On The Accelerator To No Available Power. The Engine Refused To Communication With The Accelerator As The Rpm Would Just Increase But No Actual Power Was Given To The Vehicle. I Tried Multiple Times To Get The Vehicle To Respond But Eventually Had To Pull Over Because No Power Was Available. Even After Somehow Avoid 3 Lanes Of Constant Traffic, I Attempted To Start Driving Again Without Shutting The Vehicle Down. During This Point All That Would Still Happen Was The Vehicle Would Rev The Rpm’s, But Not Propulsion Was Available. I Had To Shutdown The Car Completely On The Highway Shoulder In Order To Get The Car To Respond To Any Time Of Gas Demands. I Have Heard About The Throttle Body Issue Many Customers Have Been Experiencing And Believe I Have The Same Issue. This Is A Huge Safety Concern Because Losing Power While In Cruise Control At 75mph Can Lead To Catastrophic Results. I Believe That This Needs To Be Looked Into Because It Causes Immediate Panic From The Driver As They Attempt To Drive Safely Out Of The Traffic. This Is The Second Time This Has Happened To Me In This Vehicle. The First Time, ford Mechanics Blamed The Problem On The Recalled Fuel Pump And Replaced It. Since Clearly That Was Not The Remedy To This Problem, I Believe That More Investigation Should Be Done To Understand The Full Scope Of The Immediate Loss Of Power That Myself And Many Other Have Experienced. *tr

2013fordfusion Se 2.0lt Ecoboost Engine – Bought March 2014 About 33,000 Miles. My Issues Started Around The End Of May 2014. 1. When Coming To An Idle My Car Always Acts Like It Is Going To Stall. It Idles Really Hard And The Rpms Always Jump Real Low. There Are Never Any Warning Lights/messages That Appear. 2. Extremely Poor Gas Mileage – This Is A 4 Cylinder And An Ecoboost That Should Be Getting A Hell Of A Lot Better Gas Mileage – City And Highway! My 2012 fusion V6 Had Wayyyy Better Mpg. I Have Read In Forums About Both Of These 2 Issues And Found Related Problems. ford Wanted $180.00 Just To ‘look’ At My Driveability. Just To Plug My Car Computer Into Their Scanner. There Are No Recalls On This For My Specific Car Even Though I Am Finding A Lot Of The Same Issues As Some Recalls On Other Model fusions. I Should Not Have To Pay For This To Be Fixed, This Is Fault Of ford. 3. My A/c System Stopped Blowing Cold Air At 36,816 Miles!!! Still No Warnings Active And ford Wants $120.00 Just To ‘look’ At It – And Charge Me More To Fix Any Issues It Has. While Reading Some Forums I Have Noticed Several Recalls/same Issues For This And Some Say That The A/c Pipe Is Faulty And Leaks. But My Specific Car Does Not Have Those Recalls So ford Will Not Fix Issue. And Again, I Should Not Have To Pay For Faulty Parts! Disgusted!!!!! Please Correct The Recalls So I Can Drive Safely.
