I Purchased My 2012fordfusion About 4 Months Ago From A Family Member Who Had No Problems With The Car Since Owning It New. Since That Time I Have Had An Alert Come On When I Am Driving That Reads “power Steering Failure” And The Steering Wheel Becomes Really Hard To Turn. It Has Happened To Me Twice And My Wife Once. When I Stop The Car And Turn The Ignition Switch Off And Then Start The Car Back Up The System Is Reset And The Warning Is Not Displayed Any Longer And The Power Steering Works Once Again. This Is Very Dangerous As My Wife Had A Very Hard Time Turning The Wheel To Get The Car Off The Interstate When It Happened To Her. I Took The Car Into My Regular Mechanic Who Could Not Diagnose The Problem (he Drove It Around A Long Time) And He Recommended That I Take It In To The ford Dealer. The ford Dealer Told Me That It Was A Problem With The Rack And Pinion And That It Would Cost $1700 To Get It Replaced. I Refused The Repair Because I Read On This Board That This Has Been A Problem With The 2012fusions And That Others That Have Taken Their Car In To Get This Problem Fixed, Paid The Money For The Repair, But Still Had The Same Alert Come On After The “repair.” It Sounds Like An electrical Problem To Me That Is Reset When The Car Is Turned Back On. I Expect There To Be A Recall On This Problem As This Could Be Very Dangerous. My Car Only Has 81,000 Miles On It. *js

The Start Engine Button Cuts The Engine Off If You Accidentally Hit It. It Is Right Beside The Radio On/off Button So Is Very Easy To Hit By Mistake. If You Are Driving 70 Mph On The Interstate And Accidentally Hit It You Are Left With No Engine Power, No Power Brakes And No Power Steering. Someone Is Going To Get Killed. I Have Written ford A Couple Of Times And Have Gotten No Response Except To Tell My Local Dealer. It’s Not A Dealer Problem. The Button Should Have Some Type Of Cover Over It. This Has Happened To Us While Driving – Luckily Were Able To Put Car In Neutral And Restart Engine. *kb

While The escape Is Driving At No Particular Speed, The Steering Wheel Tugs A Little Then It Locks Completely Up, Then The Brakes Fail, The Engine Light Comes On And The Only Way To Get The Car To Stop Is To Use The Emergency Brake. My escape Has Done This Three Times Since I Bought It In May Of This Year. Two Of The Incidents Almost Resulted In Car Accidents Because The Car Can Not Be Steered. The Car Totally Freezes Up With All Engines Lights Coming On. The Speed Doesn’t Seem To Be A Factor. All Three Occassions My Cd Player Has Been On, The Air Has Been On Low And My Lights Have Been On. After The Car Finally Stops By Using The Emergengy Brake, I Shut Everything Off And It Starts Right Back Up Again.

I First Took It To The ford Service Shop, Who Replaced The Air Flow Valve And The Idle Regulator, But This Did Not Solve The Problem. The Car Stalled Again Two Days Later. I Returned The Car To The Shop Without Any Help From The Dealer Because The Shop Could Not Duplicate The Problem. I Explained To The Shop Manager That I Had Read On The Internet That A Pcm Relay Could Be The Culprit. The Frod Delaer Shop Very Hesitantly Replaced The Part Today. I Feel This Is A Very Serious Problem Because I Have Almost Been Hit Twice When The Engine Has Stalled. I Lose Power Steering And Power Brakes, Thus Losing Control Of The Car. *ak

I Was Unable To Turn The Key In The Ignition Of My 2001fordescape. The Steering Wheel Was Also Locked. I Had To Have A Locksmith Come To Start It. The Locksmith Said There Have Been Many Similar Problems With All ford Ignitions. I Had The Ignition Cylinder Replaced At The ford Dealership. The Dealer Said He Was Unaware Of Any Problems Related To Ignitions In The escape. I Learned From A Focus Owner That The Focus Cars Had Been Recalled In Late 2000/early 2001 For This Same Problem. I Later Learned By Calling Another ford Dealership That The Same Part Is Used For Both The Focus And The escape. Why Haven’t The escapes Been Recalled? *nm
