Like Many Other 2013 fusion Owners, I Also Have An Issue When Refueling. The Best Example Thus Far Was Purposely Running Down To Three Miles To Empty Before Refueling. I Was Able To Pump Only 12.861 Gallons Into The 16.5 Gallon Tank – This Included Three Top-off Clicks Of The Pump. I Had The Car At The Dealership To Check This Issue Out. The Service Adviser Told Me He Contacted ford Engineering Regarding The Concern. ford Replied That They Knew There Was An Issue And Were Working On A Solution At That Time. I Have Read That Others Were Told By Dealerships That The Tank Does Fill, But That ford Set The fuel Gauge To Allow For A Reserve After Zero Miles To Empty. If This Is True, There Is A 22% Reserve Allowance In My Case Noted Above. I Consider This A Safety Issue As The Consumer Must Know, With Reasonable Accuracy, The fuel Level Of Their Vehicle So They Do Not Run Out Of fuel On Busy Or Remote Roads ford Needs To Respond To Dealers/customers To Explain The Issue, And What Is Going To Be Done To Resolve It. *tr

This Problem Can Happen At Any Time While Driving . You Could Be Going Thru An Intersection Or Getting On The High Way .the Problem Is When You Step On The Gas Pedal Nothing Happens No Acceleration. The Engine Is Still Running. The Car Then Goes Into A Limp Home Mode Of Sorts, With An Top Speed Of 25 Mph Then 5 Mph Then Back To 25 Mph , It’s Kind Of The Feeling You Get When There’s Water In Your Gas. Going Up Any Hills Can Be A Problem As The Engine Does Not Have The Power For This Task. This Creates A Serious Safety Issue That Could Lead To Injury Or Someone Being Killed. *tr

While Driving At Slow Speeds (0-10 Mph) The Vehicle Accelerates On Its Own. Sometimes When Pressing The Accelerator The Vehicle Doesn’t Respond, Causing Me To Have To Further Press The Accelerator, And When The Vehicle Suddenly Responds, It Rapidly Accelerates. *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
