Summary of Complaint

THE BRAKES ON MY 2008 FORD FUSION ONCE AGAIN NEARLY FAILED AFTER ACTIVATION OF THE ABS AND GOING DOWN THE INTERSTATE AT 70 MPH. THIS IS THE PROBLEM REPORTED WITH RECALL/NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER 19V904. I KNOW THIS IS THE CASE SINCE THIS IS THE THIRD TIME THIS HAS OCCURRED ON MY CAR. I HAVE PAID FOR THE LAST TWO REPLACEMENTS WITH ONE BEING A FULL REPLACEMENT AT A FORD DEALER OF AROUND ~$600 AND ANOTHER THAT WAS ABLE TO BE REMEDIED BY BLEEDING THE BRAKE LINES UNTIL THE HYDRAULIC VALVE RESET. I FIND IT HARD TO BELIEVE THAT THE NHTSA ONLY HAS 15 COMPLAINTS OF THIS, BUT I GUESS THAT IS THE CASE WHEN YOU HAVE AN OBSCURE REPORTING PROCEDURE. I AM ABLE TO FIND HUNDREDS OF COMPLAINTS WITH A SIMPLE SEARCH. I AM GLAD THIS HAS FINALLY BEEN RECALLED, BUT NOW WE HAVE TO WAIT FOR FORD TO DRAG THEIR FEET ON SAYING PARTS ARE AVAILABLE. IT IS A SHAME THAT THE NHTSA MAKES YOU ENTER ALL OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION IN ORDER TO FILE A COMPLAINT. PERHAPS YOU ALL SHOULD LOOK INTO ANONYMOUS REPORTING.

Consumer Location: COLUMBUS, OH
VIN: 3FAHP071X8R****

Summary of Complaint

DRIVING DOWN HIGHWAY, THE BRAKES NEEDED TO BE APPLIED ABRUPTLY AND CAUSED AN ABS EVENT. SINCE THAT TIME, THE BRAKE PEDAL HAS BEEN EXTREMELY SOFT AND NEEDS SIGNIFICANT PRESSURE TO GET THE VEHICLE TO STOP. THE BRAKE PEDAL NEEDS TO BE PUSHED TO THE FLOOR. ALSO, THERE IS A SLIGHT HISS COMING FROM UNDERNEATH THE HOOD WHEN APPLYING BRAKES THAT CAN BE SOMETIMES HEARD. AFTER SEARCHING THE INTERNET FOR SIMILAR ISSUES, THE PROBLEM IS DUE TO FAULTY ABS MODULE AND HCU (HYRDRAULIC CONTROL UNIT). FORD DEALER STATES THE PART IS ON BACK ORDER AND UNABLE TO FIX THE PROBLEM.

Summary of Complaint

RE: NHTSA RECALL NUMBER16V384; MANUFACTURER RECALL NUMBER16S26 IN TWO MORE DAYS, I WILL HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR TWO YEARS FOR THE DEFECTIVE AIRBAG INFLATORS IN MY 2008 FORD FUSION TO BE REPLACED. THE VEHICLE SPENT ITS FIRST 7.5 YEARS IN THE HOT AND HUMID HELL THAT IS CENTRAL TEXAS, WHICH SHOULD MAKE THIS VEHICLE A PRIORITY FOR REPLACEMENT OF ITS DEFECTIVE AIRBAG INFLATORS. FORD TAKES THE EASY WAY OUT AND POINTS THE FINGER AT TAKATA, LEAVING DRIVERS AND PASSENGERS RISKING THEIR LIVES. CAN YOU PLEASE PROD FORD TO FIND ANOTHER SUPPLIER OF INFLATORS AND GET BUSY REPLACING THE FEDECTIVE INFLATORS IN VEHICLES FROM HOT & HUMID AREAS?

Summary of Complaint

MULTIPLE TIMES A WEEK I DRIVE PASSENGERS IN A POTENTIALLY UNSAFE CAR DUE TO A RECALLED AIRBAG. I HAVE CALLED A DEALERSHIP, BUT WAS INFORMED THE PART WAS NOT AVAILABLE FOR OVER A YEAR AND A HALF. IT IS IRRESPONSIBLE OF FORD TO NOT HAVE THIS PART AVAILABLE. I BOUGHT A CAR WHICH I THOUGHT TO BE SAFE AND THE COMPANY CLEARLY IS NOT CONCERNED ABOUT THE WELFARE OF THEIR CAR OWNERS DUE TO THE LACK OF CONCERN ABOUT REPLACING THE PART.
