10/7/2014 - BEAUFORT, SC
AS I WAS COMING FROM BIBLE STUDY THIS NIGHT; MY CAR TURNED OFF; I SAW A SCREW DRIVER SYMBOL APPEAR AND IT WENT DEAD. AFTER WAITING FOR AWHILE FOR MY HUSBAND, WE WERE ABLE TO CRANK IT AGAIN AND PROCEED HOME. TWO DAYS LATER; IT DID THE SAME THING. WE TOOK IT TO STOKES OF BEAUFORT, WHERE WE PURCHASED IT AND WAS TOLD THAT THERE WAS A RECALL ON OUR YEAR. THEY ADVISED US TO TAKE IT TO OC WELCH; AND WAS TOLD THERE THAT THEY RECALLED FUSIONS, BUT NOT OUR VIN #, BUT WAS TOLD THAT THEY CHECKED IT AND SO NOTHING WRONG. WE WOULD HAVE TO WAIT TELL IT STOPS COMPLETELY. I DO HAVE EXTENDED WARRANTY; BUT THEY DIDNT SEE THE NEED TO GO ANY FURTHER. DAYS LATER, AFTER COMING FROM THE LAUNDRY MAT, THE SAME THING HAPPENED AGAIN ON TOP OF A BRIDGE WITH MY TWO GRAND BABIES IN THE CAR, IT JUST STOPPED. WHAT AM I TO DO???

STEERING

10/7/2014 - WOOSTER, OH
WHILE DRIVING THE ELECTRONIC POWER STEERING WENT OUT MAKING IT DIFFICULT TO STEER. A MESSAGE INDICATED POWER STEERING ASSIST FAULT. STOPPED CAR AND RESTARTED AND PROBLEM STOPPED. HOWEVER IT REAPPEARED LATER ON THE DRIVE HOME. I CONTACTED DEALER AND WAS IMMEDIATELY SCHEDULED IN FOR WARRANTY REPAIR. THE POWER STEERING WAS OUT EVEN AS I DROPPED IT FOR SERVICE. RACK AND PINION STEERING GEAR ASSEMBLY WAS REPLACED UNDER WARRANTY. HAD THIS NOT BEEN A WARRANTY REPAIR, THE BILL WOULD HAVE BEEN NEARLY $2000. THE DEALER WAS VERY CLOSED LIP ABOUT THIE ISSUE AND DIDN'T WANT TO GO INTO DETAIL ON WHAT/WHY OR HOW OFTEN THIS HAPPENED. IT SEEMED CLEAR TO ME WHEN I CALLED THAT THEY WERE FAMILIAR WITH THE PROBLEM. EVEN NOW I HAVE NO ASSURANCES THIS WAS REPLACED WITH PARTS OF BETTER QUALITY THAN THE ORIGINAL.

STEERING

10/7/2014 - GILBERT, AZ
WHILE DRIVING APPROXIMATELY 30 MPH, I HEARD SEVERAL BEEPS AND THEN I LOST POWER STEERING. THE WARNING MESSAGE SAID "POWER STEERING ASSIST FAULT" AND THEN "SERVICE ADVANCETRAC". I DROVE THE REST OF THE WAY TO WORK (APPROXIMATELY A 10 MINUTE DRIVE) WITHOUT POWER STEERING. WHEN I STARTED THE CAR AGAIN SEVERAL HOURS LATER, I HAD POWER STEERING AGAIN, BUT DROVE THE CAR STRAIGHT TO MY LOCAL FORD DEALERSHIP. IT WAS DETERMINED THAT THERE IS A FAULTY SENSOR CAUSING THE POWER STEERING ISSUE. THIS WOULD BE COVERED BY THE 3 YEAR/36,000 MILE WARRANTY, BUT I WAS OUT OF WARRANTY BY JUST 5 DAYS. THE REPAIR WAS QUOTED AS $1700. I WAS GIVEN A CUSTOMER SERVICE NUMBER TO CALL, AND WAS INFORMED BY A REPRESENTATIVE THAT THERE WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO TO HELP ME. I CALLED BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP, AND THEY GAVE ME A NEW QUOTE OF $1500, SAYING THAT WAS THE BEST THEY COULD DO. WITH THIS BEING A KNOWN PROBLEM IN 2010-2012 FUSIONS, FORD SHOULD ISSUE A RECALL AND ASSIST ALL THEIR OWNERS! THEY NEED TO STAND BEHIND THEIR WORK, AND CORRECT THE ISSUE.
