Summary of Complaint

Safety Recall Notice 19S54/NHTSA Recall 19V-904 Received recall notice April 2021 that the parts HCU (hydraulic control unit) for the antilock brake system is faulty. Brought to the dealer on April 21, 2021, Sayville Ford, Sayville NY and they told me to pick up the vehicle, had the same soft pedal. Drove it home and 2 weeks later hit an uneven surface and pedal went to the floor, had to pump numerous times to stop, almost hit a parked car. This had happened 2 times before I received the recall notice and both times ended up in the intersection. Brought it back to Sayville Ford they had it for 2 weeks and called me to tell me that Ford Motors Denied the claim and will not fix the problem. I bought this vehicle new in 2006 for my wife and I will not let her drive it. It is very dangerous to be driven on the road at this point. The vehicle has only 32,000 miles I spoke to Ford Motor Corp and they will not honor this Recall 19S54. Please help, I do not know where to go from here. My name is [XXX] and my wife name is [XXX], we live in Bohemia NY my phone #[XXX]. INFORMATION Redacted PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Summary of Complaint

The headlights are so foggy that night driving is dangerous. I applied a liquid to the exterior of both lights and that improved visibility for about a year. I believe this is caused by a reaction to the plastic used on the lenses. The vehicle is available for inspection however I have not taken it to a dealership for this problem. I have noticed this headlight problem on other vehicles.

Summary of Complaint

THERE'S A BLATANT TRANSMISSION SAFETY CONCERN FOR ALL 2006 FORD FUSIONS. ACCORDING TO MULTIPLE WEBSITES WITH FORUMS, HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING TRANSMISSION CONCERNS. THE ISSUE IS WHEN ACCELERATING, THE CAR SLIPS OUT OF GEAR AND VIOLENTLY LURCHES FORWARD AND NO LONGER ACCELERATES, CREATING AN EXTREME SAFETY HAZARD ESPECIALLY ON THE HIGHWAY. THE ONLY WAY, AT LEAST FOR ME, TO GET IT BACK INTO GEAR IS TO COMPLETELY STOP ACCELERATING FOR A FEW SECONDS AND THEN TRY ACCELERATING AGAIN. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY A SAFETY HAZARD ON THE HIGHWAY AND STREET DRIVING. NO MECHANICS OR FORD MECHANICS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO FIX THIS ISSUE, ONLY RECOMMEND THAT THE TRANSMISSION BE REPLACED, WHICH IS NOT AN IDEAL REPAIR, ESPECIALLY WHEN THIS IS HAPPENING AS SOON AS 50,000 MILES HAVE BEEN PUT ON THE CAR. I'M SCARED TO DRIVE MY CAR, ESPECIALLY ON THE HIGHWAY BECAUSE MY ACCELERATION IS LIMITED AND THIS COULD HAPPEN AT ANY TIME. THIS HAS BEEN HAPPENING TO MY CAR SINCE IT HIT 50,000 AND THERE'S NO WAY I CAN AFFORD A NEW TRANSMISSION, NOR SHOULD I HAVE TO REPLACE IT SINCE THIS HAS HAPPENED IN MULTIPLE 2006 FORD FUSIONS. THIS ISSUE HAS ALSO HAPPENED TO MY DRIVING AROUND TOWN. THERE ARE MANY REPORTS ON HTTPS://REPAIRPAL.COM/TRANSMISSION-PROBLEM-242 AND SOME ON HTTPS://WWW.CARCOMPLAINTS.COM/FORD/FUSION/2006/TRANSMISSION/TRANSMISSION_FAILURE.SHTML AND HTTPS://FORDPROBLEM.COM/2006-FORD-FUSION-POWER-TRAIN-AUTOMATIC-TRANSMISSION-PROBLEMS-DEFECTS/AMP/
