Summary of Complaint

HELLO NHTSA, I WAS DRIVING MY CAR NORMALLY AS ANY DRIVER AND I PUT MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE FOR A STOP SIGN AND SUDDENLY THE BRAKES GO DOWN ON THE GROUND AND ARE NOT WORKING. THE ISSUE IS IN THE ABS MODULE AND PUMP. THIS ISSUE IS COMMON FOR ALL FORD FUSION AND MILAN CARS. THIS CAUSED ME SEVERAL HORRIBLE SCENARIOS WHERE I COULD'VE DIED. I TAKE EXTRA CARE FOR MY CAR AND THIS IS A CAR MANUFACTURE PROBLEM. I'M VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH FORD ABOUT THIS AND I HOPE THIS WOULD BE CONSIDERED AS A RECALL. HERE IS A YOUTUBE VIDEO OF A MECHANIC WHICH EXPLAINS THE PROBLEM IN DETAIL AND ALSO MENTIONS THAT IT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AS A RECALL.

Summary of Complaint

MY VEHICLE HAS HAD AN AIRBAG RECALL FOR THE FRONT PASSENGER (TAKATA BRAND) AIRBAG. I'VE RECEIVED MANY NOTICES FOR THIS ISSUE SINCE I'VE PURCHASED THE CAR (AUGUST, 2014). AFTER CALLING FORD MULTIPLE TIMES, I'VE BEEN TOLD THAT THE PRODUCTS HAVE NOT ARRIVED TO REPLACE THE POSSIBLY DAMAGED PARTS. MY CAR HAS BEEN IN ONE ACCIDENT IN THE PAST THREE YEARS (ROUGHLY FALL/WINTER OF 2016). THE AIRBAGS DID NOT DEPLOY, WHICH IS WORRISOME BECAUSE AT THIS POINT I'M UNSURE IF IT'S BECAUSE IT WASN'T NECESSARY OR BECAUSE THEY ARE MALFUNCTIONING. PLEASE ADVISE AND LET ME KNOW HOW I CAN FURTHER EVALUATE AND SOLVE THIS ISSUE. THANKS!
