FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

3/16/2016 - FAIRFAX, VA
OUR FORD FUSION CONTINUES TO STOP WORKING AT 45+ MPH. WE WILL BE DRIVING AND THE CAR BASICALLY STALLS, EXCEPT IT STILL HAS POWER AND SHAKES VIOLENTLY. IT HAS HAPPENED 5 TIMES IN THE LAST 3 DAYS. WE HAD A SAME PROBLEM BACK IN DECEMBER, BUT FORD WOULD NOT REPAIR IT BECAUSE THE THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WAS NEVER ON. PREVIOUSLY, THE ONLY ERROR THE DEALERSHIP COULD PROVIDE WAS ERROR CODE P21111 AND STATED THE THROTTLE VALUE WAS STUCK OPEN. HERE WE ARE 3 MONTHS LATER AND IT IS WORSE. FORD HAS AN EXTENDED WARRANTY ON THROTTLE VALUES, BUT FORD WONT FIX THE ISSUE. WE ARE TAKING IT TO THE SHOP AGAIN AND REFUSE TO DRIVE IT UNTIL THE ISSUE IS FIXED. IT IS UNACCEPTABLE THAT THIS CONTINUES TO HAPPEN. WE WERE DRIVING 65MPH WHEN IT STALLED. THAT IS NOT SAFE!!!!!

POWER TRAIN

3/11/2016 - NUEVO, CA
TRANSMISSION SHIFTING ERRATICALLY, COMPLETED FORD REFLASH OF TCM (TSB# 12-6-12) AND MADE THE TRANSMISSION FLARE AND GEAR PAUSE GO AWAY. HOWEVER NOW THE VEHICLE AFTER DRIVING IT A FEW HUNDRED MILES SHIFTS VERY HARD. THIS ALSO CAUSES THE VEHICLE TO ACCELERATE FORWARD IN AN INCONSTANT MANNER (EXAMPLE - PUSHING ON THE GAS PEDAL THE SAME AMOUNT 2 DIFFERENT TIMES FROM A STOP RESULTED IN A JACK RABBIT START AND THE OTHER ACCELERATED MORE SMOOTHLY WITHOUT THE SUDDEN JOLT.) THE VEHICLE WILL DO THIS REPEATEDLY BUT ONLY IN LIGHT THROTTLE APPLICATIONS, 1/2 THROTTLE AND ABOVE THE TRANSMISSION SHIFTS PERFECT. THE 6F35 TRANSMISSION SHOULD BE RECALLED FOR ISSUES AS THE 2010-2016 MODEL FUSION / ESCAPE VEHICLES HAVE THESE ISSUES WHEN SEARCHING FOR COMMON ISSUES OR REMEDIES FOR THE ISSUES I'VE EXPERIENCED.

STEERING

2/29/2016 - CHESAPEAKE, VA
WHEN STARTING THE CAR, I WILL GET A POWER STEERING ASSIST FAULT WARNING. THE POWER STEERING WILL NOT WORK. I TURN THE CAR OFF AND ON TO TRY TO CLEAR THE ERROR AND RESET THE POWER STEERING. THIS NORMALLY WORKS. SOMETIMES IT TAKES MULTIPLE TRIES TO CLEAR AND FUNCTION NORMALLY. I AM WORRIED THAT THIS ERROR WILL OCCUR WHILE I AM DRIVING AND CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. I AM ALSO CONCERNED THAT MY VEHICLE IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE RECALL OF FORD VEHICLES WITH THE SAME ISSUE. THIS ISSUE HAS OCCURRED 6 TIMES IN THE PAST WEEK.
