SUSPENSION

6/13/2017 - FLORENCE, SC
AFTER POWER STEERING FAILED, CAR WAS REPAIRED UNDER A RECALL NOTICE AT LOCAL FORD DEALERSHIP. THE STEERING RACK WAS REPLACED. 3 HOURS AFTER PICKING UP THE CAR, WHEN LEAVING WORK, THE POWER STEERING FAILED AGAIN WHILE IN MOTION ON A CITY STREET GOING UNDER 40 MPH DECELERATING COMING TO A RED LIGHT. RECEIVED WARNING "SERVICE POWER STEERING NOW" AND "SERVICE ADVANCTRAC." THESE ARE THE SAME WARNINGS RECEIVED PRIOR TO REPAIR. THE CAR WENT IMMEDIATELY AND GROSSLY OUT OF ALIGNMENT. ABOVE 55 MPH, THE CAR SHAKES SEVERELY. FORD DEALERSHIP SAYS THE REPAIR NEEDED FALLS UNDER THE TSB 11-11-3 RELATED TO HIGH FRICTION IN THE CONTROL ARMS; HOWEVER, THE TSB STATES THAT THIS PROBLEM ONLY CAUSES THE STABILITY/TRACTION INSTRUMENT CLUSTER TO ILLUMINATE. THE DEALERSHIP SAYS EVERYTHING UNDER MY CAR LOOKS TO BE IN GOOD CONDITION AND THAT THIS HAS TO BE THE PROBLEM, STATING THAT THE HIGH FRICTION IS CAUSING THE POWER STEERING PUMP TO LOCK UP WHICH IS THEN FAILING THE POWER STEERING ALL TOGETHER. THIS IS A SAFETY CONCERN AND SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE RECALL ON THE POWER STEERING MODULE. THE VEHICLE HAS 145,000 MILES. IT HAS BEEN DRIVEN FOR 6 YEARS WITHOUT ISSUE.

MY 2012 FORD FUSION SEL, WHEN ACCELERATING FROM A STATIONARY POINT ON A CITY STREET, MY ENGINE LOSES POWER AND STARTS TO SPUTTER BEFORE THE ENGINE SHUTS OFF ON ITS OWN. THIS PROBLEM HAS HAPPENED MANY TIMES IN THE MIDDLE OF TRAFFIC, WHERE I'D HAVE TO COMPLETELY STOP, PUT THE GEAR IN PARK, AND RESTART THE ENGINE.

TWO MONTHS AGO, I WAS DRIVING AND MY STEERING BECAME VERY DIFFICULT TO HANDLE. THERE WAS A WHINING SOUND EVERY TIME I MADE A TURN. CHECKED THE POWER STEERING FLUID AND IT WAS COMPLETELY EMPTY. I REFILLED IT AND A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO, I STARTED HAVING TROUBLE WITH STEERING AND THE WHINE WHEN TURNING WAS BACK. THE POWER STEERING FLUID RESERVOIR WAS EMPTY AGAIN. I HAVE REFILLED THE RESERVOIR AGAIN. NO OBVIOUS SIGNS OF LEAKAGE. THERE IS A RECALL FOR SOME 2012 FORD FUSIONS BUT I HAVE NOT FOUND MINE INCLUDED IN THE RECALL.
