Summary of Complaint

THIS IS AN ISSUE THAT HAS GROWN. I HAVE DOCUMENTED PROOF THAT DATES BACK TO MARCH 2016. THIS ISSUE IS AN ESCALATION OF OLD PROBLEM THAT FORD REFUSES TO ACKNOWLEDGE IS AN ISSUE. I SAY THIS BECAUSE THERE IS NO CURRENT RECALL ON THIS ISSUE. ON 9/03/2016, I WAS DRIVING ON WEST GEORGIA RD IN SIMPONVILLE SC WHEN ALL IF A SUDDEN THE CAR JERKED. THEN A WRENCH AND CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON. I CAR STARTED TO LOSE POWER. LUCKILY, NO CAR WAS TRAILING BEHIND US OR I'M SURE IT WOULD HAVE RAN INTO THE BACK OF US. I SAY THIS BECAUSE MY FOOT WAS ON THE GAS PEDAL SO A CAR BEHIND ME WOULD NOT HAVE KNOWN TO SLOW DOWN TIL TOO LATE. I HAD JUST TAKEN MY CAR TO THE DEALERSHIP THE WEEK BEFOR FOR A SECOND TIME DUE TO CAR STALLING RIGHT AFTER A TAKE OFF FROM A STOP. EACH TIME TO BE TOLD NOTHING IS WRONG AND THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT BE TURNED OFF. EACH TIME SERVICE PERSON SAYS BRING IT BACK IF CHECK ENGINE LIGHT STARTS BLINKING OR HAS A RED DOT BECAUSE SOMETHING THEN IS WRONG. AFTER THIS INCIDENT I MAKE A FORMAL COMPLAINT TO FORD. A MANAGER CALLS ME AND I RETURN HER CALL. SHE ASKS ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED AND I TELL HER. I ALSO TELL HER FORD HAD AN ISSUE. IT'S DANGEROUS TO DRIVE A CAR THAT AT ANYTIME MAY LOSE ACCELERATION WHILE DRIVING AND CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. I PRAY THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN TO MY FAMILY. I BOUGHT THIS CAR AFTER RESEARCHING IT WAS JUST AS GOOD AS A TOYOTA OR HONDA. SHE SUGGESTS I TAKE IT TO A DIFFERENT DEALERSHIP WHICH I SAY I ALREADY HAVE PLANS TO. BUT SHE ALSO SAY TO HAVE A TECHNICIAN RIDE WITH ME TO GIVE POINTERS ON HOW TO DRIVE TO AVOID THE STALLS. MY EXPERIENCE WAS NOT A STALL. IT WAS A LIST OF POWER WHILE DRIVING A CAR I PURCHASED NEW LESS THAN A YEAR AGO. THE 2ND DEALERSHIP SAYS IT'S A THROTTLE BODY ISSUE. IT CAN BE REPAIRED BUT APPOINTMENT NOT TIL 21ST. PLUS NO LOANER CAR. I HAVE TO WORK TO LIVE AND PAR FOR THAT CAR. FORD NEEDS A RECALL BEFORE THERE'S A DEATH.

Summary of Complaint

The bushing that attaches the shifter cable degraded and detached from the transmission. We were driving to our vacation rental (4.5 hours away from home at this point) and we went to put the car in park to get gas. The gear was in Park, but the car read it was still in Drive. We had to use Emergency Brake to keep it in place. We were stranded for almost 2 hours as dealerships and rentals were closed. A body shop owner happened to pull in front of us and helped us temporarily fix it. There was a recall for 2.5 liter engine for this issue in 2019 so my car was not covered. However, the EXACT same issue occurred. There were no warning signs whatsoever prior to failure.

The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who diagnosed that there was a misfire detected in cylinder # 1. the check engine warning light was reset. The independent mechanic suggested that the vehicle be driven for a couple of miles to see if the check engine warning light would reappear.

The contact researched online and saw that there was a technical service bulletin related to the failure and had the vehicle towed back to the same independent mechanic.

Gear shift was placed in park. Car stayed in reverse, reverse showing on dash as well. Could not fully turn car off. Red shift lever under the console did nothing. The bushing/ball is completely missing from the shift linkage. Has not been inspected by "authorized" repair center. Husband was able to see the problem and manually shift it into drive to get it home. Ford has informed me this vehicle does not have the same problems as the others recalled, yet it IS the exact same issue.

Summary of Complaint

Canister purge valve malfunction. I had trouble starting my car a couple of times and it would randomly stall out. But after getting gas this last time, I noticed a humming/grinding sound coming from the gas tank. When stopped at a red light (in rush hour traffic) the car stalled completely and wouldn't start. Had to wait a few seconds and try starting again and again, when it finally started again the noise was still there. I called a friend and we ran diagnostics on it and it returned the error of the canister purge valve malfunction. This has been a recall on other Ford cars in the past but not showing on my VIN....

Summary of Complaint

I bought my 2016 Fusion two years ago with 75,000 Miles on the odometer. The first day it went into fail safe mode while in the passing lane. I had no engine power and had to pull over in traffic. Code P2111 Throttle body stuck open. I cleaned the throttle body and maf sensor with a $10 two pack of spray cleaner. My car now with 110,000 miles just did the same thing yesterday 5/17/21 while in traffic code P2111. I cleaned the throttle body again even though it didn't look dirty compared to the first time. My car shut down three times today while in traffic. Each time I had to pull over with no power shut off the car and restart the engine. I will replace the throttle body but believe this is very serious defect and should have never happened at 75,000 miles or even at 110,000. Very dangerous and scary to drive far from home knowing how much it would cost to be towed and have to pay a shop to repair. Kind regards, [XXX] INFORMATION Redacted PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Summary of Complaint

My driver side door will not close. I noticed this when I tried to shut the door and it just bounced open. No Warning! I do not feel safe driving around, knowing my door can open and have myself flung from the vehicle. Same issue as the 20V177000 recall but somehow my car is not under this recall. I purchased this car in New Hampshire but have lived in Arizona since 2017.I see this recall is due to high temperatures and know this is the issue as I take care to never slam my doors. I’ll be taking it to Jim Click Ford dealership for repairs ASAP but I hope to be reimbursed for this in the coming months.

Summary of Complaint

HELLO, I HAVE A 2016 FORD FUSION. I BOUGHT IT IN 2019 FROM A BIG LOCAL CAR DEALER. I BROUGHT IT IN TO A FORD DEALER ON 4/16 FOR ROUTINE SERVICE. THE SERVICE PERSON CALLED ME AFTER I DROPPED OFF THE CAR TO TELL ME THAT MY FUSION HAS "SWOLLEN LUG NUTS" AND IT WOULD COST ME $164 FOR ALL NEW LUG NUTS AND LABOR COSTS. I HAD NO REAL CHOICE AND HAD TO PAY. SUBSEQUENTLY I HAVE DONE SOME RESEARCH AND HAVE FOUND THAT "SWOLLEN LUG NUTS" HAVE BEEN A MAJOR PROBLEM FOR SOME FORD OWNERS LIKE ME. FOR SOME UNKNOWN REASON TO ME MY FORD DEALER SAID THERE HAS NOT BEEN A RECALL EVEN THOUGH THIS IS A COMMON ISSUE FOR THEIR CUSTOMERS. THANKFULLY I WAS AT THE FORD DEALER FOR ROUTINE SERVICE RATHER THAN HAVING A FLAT TIRE ON AN INTERSTATE. I CONTACTED FORD AND ESSENTIALLY I WAS TOLD TO SAVE THE RECEIPT IF THERE EVER IS A RECALL AND THAT WOULD EMAIL FORD ENGINEERS OF MY ISSUE. I BELIEVE THIS TO BE A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE. CAN YOU HELP?

THIS CAR IS STILL FAIRLY NEW. LOOKED INTO IT AND IT SEEMS A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE HAVING THE SAME EXPERIENCE AND FORD IS AWARE OF THE MALFUNCTION AFTER MANY COMPLAINTS BUT STILL HAS NOT MADE IT A RECALL. VERY UPSETTING THAT I WILL BE WITHOUT A CAR FOR A WEEK AND HAVE TO PAY $1600 JUST TO GET IT FIXED WHEN IT SEEMS TO BE A MASS PROBLEM.

Summary of Complaint

THE TRUNK RANDOMLY OPENS ON ITS OWN. IT HAPPENS WHILE THE CAR IS DRIVING DOWN ANY SORT OF ROAD OR DRIVEWAY, PARKED AND RUNNING, OR OFF ALTOGETHER. WHEN I GET OUT TO SHUT THE TRUNK SOMETIMES IT STAYS SHUT AND SOMETIMES IT WILL REPEATEDLY OPEN THE TRUNK 4 OR 5 MORE TIMES BEFORE I CAN EVEN GET BACK IN THE CAR. I FEEL THIS IS VERY UNSAFE, ESPECIALLY AS I AM A SMALL CURRENTLY PREGNANT FEMALE TO HAVE TO KEEP EXITING MY CAR TO SHUT MY TRUNK REPEATEDLY. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR THE LAST YEAR. I GOT ONLINE AND READ SEVERAL FORUMS OF OTHER PEOPLE WITH MY CAR COMPLAINING OF THE SAME ISSUE. RECENTLY, I HAVE GONE TO MY CAR TO LEAVE AND FOUND IT COMPLETELY DEAD, AS IN IT WILL NOT UNLOCK, OR START. I ENDED UP REPLACING THE BATTERY THINKING THAT MY BE IT. HARDLY A MONTH LATER, THE SAME THING HAPPENED AGAIN. I WAS ABLE TO CALL A FORD DEALERSHIP AND DISCUSS THE PROBLEM ALONG WITH THE TRUNK OPENING ISSUE. I CHARGED THE BATTERY AND BROUGHT IT TO THE DEALERSHIP. AFTER THEY RAN DIAGNOSTICS AND WITNESSED THE TRUNK OPENING RANDOMLY THEY FOUND THAT THE TRUNK SWITCH WAS FAULTY WHICH CAUSED THE CARS COMPUTER TO BE ON EVEN WHILE THE VEHICLE WAS OFF WHICH DRAINED THE BATTERY. THEY REPLACED THE TRUNK SWITCH ON THE TRUNK LID. I ASKED IF THE PART WAS CORRODED OR DAMAGED OR WHAT CAUSED IT TO HAPPEN AND THEY SAID IT LOOKED FINE, IT WAS NOT DAMAGED ON THE EXTERIOR AND EVERYTHING WAS SEALED AS IT SHOULD BE INSIDE. I STATED THAT I USED MY TRUNK LESS THAN THE AVERAGE PERSON, ESPECIALLY LATELY AS I'VE BEEN AFRAID TO USE IT. KNOWING IT WAS A 2016 MODEL, I ASKED IF THE PART WAS OLD OR WORN THAT IT SHOULD NEED REPLACED ALREADY AND THE DEALERSHIP STATED NO. THEY STATED THAT THE PART WAS FAULTY AND THAT I HAD NOT CAUSED IT IN ANY WAY. I ENDED UP HAVING TO PAY $309.04 FOR THIS PART TO BE REPLACED WHICH MAKES ME NOT HAPPY SINCE IT SOUNDS LIKE THIS SHOULD BE A PART ON A RECALL NOTICE FROM FORD.

Summary of Complaint

RECENTLY, BOTH OF THE FRONT HEATED AND COOLED SEATS ON MY FORD FUSION STOPPED WORKING. I WENT TO MY LOCAL FORD DEALER, WHERE I PURCHASED THE CAR, TO HAVE THEM LOOK AT IT. THEY EXPLAINED TO ME THAT THE BURNT CONNECTOR IS DUE TO A FAILURE OF THE SCME MODULE AND THAT BOTH THE CONNECTOR AND SCME WOULD HAVE TO BE REPLACED AT A COST OF $596.11. I EXPLAINED TO THEM THAT I DON'T BELIEVE THE MODULE IS FAILED, AND THAT REGARDLESS, A MODULE FAILURE SHOULD NEVER RESULT IN A CONNECTOR BURNING AS ALL THIS CIRCUITRY SHOULD BE FUSE PROTECTED AGAINST OVERCURRENT WITHOUT BURNING. I TOLD THEM THAT I BELIEVED THE MODULE APPEARS TO BE FAILED ON THEIR DIAGNOSTICS SYSTEM BECAUSE THE GROUND TO THE MODULE HAS MELTED AND HAS THUS BECOME DISCONNECTED. I COMPLETED SOME INVESTIGATION AND THE FAILURE APPEARS TO BE RELATED TO INSUFFICIENT GROUNDING TO THE SCME MODULE (SEAT CLIMATE CONTROL MODULE) UNDER THE PASSENGER SEAT THAT RESULTS IN OVERCURRENT TO A GROUND PIN TO THE SCME, WHICH RESULTS IN THE CONNECTOR MELTING AND BECOMING DISCONNECTED FROM THE SCME. I AM CONCERNED DUE TO FIRE RISK IN THE PASSENGER COMPARTMENT AS WELL AS ANY IMPACT THIS FAILURE MAY HAVE ON THE SEAT AIRBAGS. I WAS ABLE TO FIX THE PROBLEM MYSELF BY REPLACING THE CONNECTOR AND ADDING A SECOND GROUND WIRE TO THE SCME TO PROVIDE PROPER GROUNDING.

Summary of Complaint

THE ACCESSORY PROTOCOL INTERFACE MODULE (APIM) FAILS AFTER A FEW YEARS, LEAVING THE CAR PHONE INOPERABLE ON THE SYNC SYSTEM, FORCING THE USER TO MANUALLY DIAL AND PLACE CALLS ON THEIR CELL PHONE WHILE DRIVING, WHICH HAS BECOME ILLEGAL IN MANY STATES AS IT TAKES THE DRIVERS EYES OFF THE ROAD FOR PERIODS AT A TIME. THE FORD FUSION ALSO HAS ISSUES WITH LEAKAGE IN THE TRUNK. I WAS UNDER THE ASSUMPTION THAT I WAS THE ONLY ONE, UNTIL SEARCHING THE INTERNET TO FIND THAT VARIOUS FUSION OWNERS HAVE EXPERIENCED THE SAME ISSUE. I BELIEVE THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE, BECAUSE IT MAY START TO AFFECT THE LIGHTS IN THE TRUNK OR ANY OTHER ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS THAT RUN THROUGH IT, START TO RUST AREAS IN THE TRUNK, AND CAUSE MOLD IF NOT PROPERLY DRIED IMMEDIATELY.

Summary of Complaint

WHEN I BROUGHT THE CAR IN TO HAVE NEW TIRES INSTALLED, I WAS INFORMED THAT THE LUG NUTS WERE SWOLLEN DUE TO A DESIGN FLAW AND COULD NOT BE USED. I HAD TO PURCHASE NEW LUG NUTS BEFORE THE TIRES COULD BE INSTALLED. I WAS TOLD THAT THE LUG NUTS COULD NOT BE PUT BACK ON THE CAR BECAUSE IT WOULD CAUSE A SAFETY ISSUE, AS THE TOOL USED TO REMOVE THEM WOULD NOT FIT IN THE CASE OF A FLAT TIRE OR THE CAP MAY COME LOOSE AND CAUSE THE LUG NUT TO BECOME LOOSE AND CAUSE THE TIRE TO FALL OFF THE VEHICLE.
