Summary of Complaint

ON THE EVENING OF DEC 29TH, UPON TURNING MY CAR ON WHILE AWAY ON A TRIP TO MORIN HEIGHTS (QUEBEC, CANADA), A "POWER STEERING FAULT" FLASHED ON MY DASH, AND I WAS UNABLE TO TURN MY STEERING WHEEL. NEIGHBOURS IN THE COTTAGE TOLD ME TO DRIVE TO A GAS STATION 1 MILE AWAY WITH MY BLINKERS ON, AND ASK FOR POWER STEERING FLUID. I BARELY MADE IT HALF A MILE OUT OF THE MORIN HEIGHTS VILLAGE, WHEN I GOT STUCK MAKING A SHARP RIGHT TURN FROM RUE ALLEN TO RUE BENNETT TO GET TO ESSO (723 CHEMIN DU VILLAGE, MORIN-HEIGHTS, QC). MY STEERING WHEEL WOULD NOT TURN RIGHT, AND I DANGEROUSLY ENDED UP IN THE LANE FACING OPPOSITE TRAFFIC. I TRIED TO TURN IT LEFT AND CONTINUE GOING STRAIGHT, BUT GOT STUCK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE INTERSECTION. CARS NEARLY HIT ME AND EVERYONE WAS HONKING AT ME. A STRANGER PULLED OVER NEXT TO ME AND USED MANUAL FORCE ON THE STEERING WHEEL TO STEER MY CAR BACK AROUND, AND DROVE IT TO THE ESSO HALF A MILE AWAY. I BOUGHT POWER STEERING FLUID, ONLY TO DISCOVER THERE WAS NO COMPARTMENT TO PUT IT INTO, AND LEARNT THAT THIS IS AN INTERMITTENT ELECTRICAL PROBLEM. WE PARKED MY CAR AT THE GAS STATION AND DEBATED HOW LONG I'LL LEAVE IT THERE FOR, HOW I'LL DRIVE BACK TO NY 480 MILES AWAY, HOW I AM GOING TO RESOLVE THIS MEANWHILE IT'S -15 DEGREES CELSIUS OUTSIDE AND I'M GETTING FROSTBITTEN. AFTER TURNING THE CAR BACK ON, THE "POWER STEER FAULT" WARNING DISAPPEARED AND MY STEERING WHEEL WAS BACK TO NORMAL. NEXT DAY ALL SERVICE SHOPS WERE CLOSED (SUNDAY), AND MONDAY WAS NEW YEARS HOLIDAY. I WAS NERVOUS ABOUT DRIVING THIS UNSAFE VEHICLE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CHRISTMAS/NEW YEAR HOLIDAYS BACK TO NY, BUT HAD NO OTHER CHOICE. I AM ABSOLUTELY MORTIFIED THAT AFTER SO MANY COMPLAINTS TO FORD CORPORATE ABOUT MY AIRBAG REPLACEMENT, THIS HAD TO HAPPEN. I DEMAND A REPLACEMENT VEHICLE AND FOR SOMEONE TO REACH OUT AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT THESE RECALLS THAT ARE ISSUED, YET NO ACTION BEING TAKEN.

Summary of Complaint

TAKATA RECALL I RECEIVED NOTICE IN AUGUST 2018 ABOUT A RECALL ON MY VEHICLE, AND HAVE SINCE CONTACTED FORD DEALERSHIPS SEVERAL TIMES TO HAVE MY AIRBAG REPLACED, TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF MYSELF AND MY PASSENGERS. I HAVE BEEN INFORMED THAT THERE IS TOO HIGH OF A DEMAND FOR THESE AIRBAGS, AND THAT FORD DOES NOT HAVE ANY REPLACEMENTS (ACCORDING TO THE DEALERSHIP IN BAYSHORE, NY). THEY HAVE SINCE IGNORED MY RECURRENT CALLS AND REQUESTS FOR UPDATES, AND SIMPLY ATTEMPT TO "PASS THE BATON" AND RELAY RESPONSIBILITIES TO OTHER DEPARTMENTS. I SENT A LETTER TO FORD CORPORATE IN MICHIGAN ON NOVEMBER 25TH (PLEASE SEE ATTACHMENT) AND HAVE STILL NOT HEARD BACK. I DO NOT FEEL SAFE DRIVING IN A VEHICLE THAT MAY EXPLODE WITH SHRAPNEL IN THE EVENT OF AN ACCIDENT, AND I DO NOT APPRECIATE BEING IGNORED AND LACK OF DILIGENCE BEING SHOWN. IT IS FORD'S RESPONSIBILITY TO ASSURE MY SAFETY AND ISSUE A REPLACEMENT VEHICLE UNTIL THEY ARE ABLE TO SUPPLY CUSTOMERS WITH THE REPLACEMENT NEEDED. I HOPE THAT ACTION WILL BE TAKEN TO RECTIFY THIS SITUATION SOONER THAN LATER.

Summary of Complaint

I AM THE OWNER OF A 2012 FORD FUSION AND JUST THIS PAST FRIDAY, MY TEENAGE SON WAS DRIVING THE CAR TO COLLEGE AND ALL OF A SUDDEN IT STOPPED ON HIM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD (BUSY INTERSECTION). HE WAS ABLE TO TURN IT BACK ON AND MAKE IT TO A PARKING LOT ON CAMPUS. WHEN TRYING TO BACK OUT OF THE PARKING LOT, THE STEERING WHEEL WOULD NOT BUDGE AND THE INDICATOR LIGHTS CAME ON FOR SERVICE ADVANCE TRAC AND SERVICE POWER STEERING. NEEDLESS TO SAY, HE WAS STRANDED AS I WAS 5 HOURS AWAY. I IMMEDIATELY CONTACTED THE DEALERSHIP I BROUGHT THE CAR FROM AND THEY VERIFIED THAT I HAD PURCHASED AN EXTENDED WARRANTY FOR MY VEHICLE. ONE WOULD BE DELIGHTED TO HEAR THAT, ONLY THAT I AM STILL WAITING ON THE INSURANCE COMPANY TO SAY THAT THEY WILL PAY OUT ON THE ELECTRICAL ISSUE THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR MAINTENANCE. WE ALL KNOW HOW MUCH OF A HASSLE IT CAN BE DEALING WITH INSURANCE COMPANIES. NEVERTHELESS, I HAD MY CAR TOWED BY MY PERSONAL INSURANCE COMPANY TO THE NEAREST DEALERSHIP (BY THE WAY IT??S CLOSED ON WEEKENDS) SO I HAD TO LET IT SIT IN THE PARKING LOT FOR 2 DAYS. I GOT A CALL FROM THE DEALERSHIP TODAY, THAT THE EPAS ELECTRONIC STEERING GEAR IS BAD AND NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. IMAGINE ME HEARING THAT THE BILL IS $1800+ DOLLARS. I AM WAITING TO HEAR THE FINAL VERDICT ON PAYOUT FROM THE INSURANCE COMPANY AND WILL UPDATE AS IT BECOMES AVAILABLE. I AM BLESSED THAT MY SON IS ALIVE AND WELL AND THAT HE DID NOT GET INTO AN ACCIDENT, BUT WHO KNOWS WHAT WILL HAPPEN THE NEXT TIME THIS PART GOES OUT UNEXPECTEDLY ! PRAISE GOD. *TR

Summary of Complaint

Driver side door handle from interior failed and no longer works. Live in South Florida and believe heat caused plastic component to break. Unable to exit vehicle unless use 2 hands...one to pull back on locking mechanism and other hand on door handle. Internet search shows common issue with 2006-2012 Ford Fusion models. Many state they roll down window and pull exterior door handle to exit vehicle. Seems like safety hazard if one needs to exit vehicle in a hurry.

Summary of Complaint

POWER STEERING WENT WHILE PARKING CAR. FORD SAID STEERING RECALL NOT APPLICABLE TO THIS VIN BECAUSE IT WAS BUILT IN A DIFFERENT PLANT. THIS IS A SAFETY HAZARD, IF THE STEERING WENT OUT AT A HIGHER SPEED IT COULD HAVE CAUSED AN ACCIDENT. ALL 2012 FORD FUSIONS SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE RECALL BECAUSE THEY ALL RECEIVED THE SAME POWER STEERING COMPONENTS REGARDLESS OF WHICH PLANT THEY WERE BUILT IN.

Summary of Complaint

THIS IS THE SECOND AIRBAG RECALL FOR MY FORD FUSION. PREVIOUSLY, THE PASSENGER AIR BAG HAD TO BE REPLACED AND FORD PROVIDED ME WITH A RENTAL CAR DURING THAT PERIOD. NOW, IT'S THE DRIVERS SIDE. THE FORM FORD SENT ME SAID THAT IT WOULD POSSIBLY EXPLODE IF I WAS IN A WRECK BUT THAT I SHOULD CONTINUE DRIVING IT. I JUST WENT TO A FORD DEALERSHIP TO ASK IF THEY COULD FIX OR PROVIDE A RENTAL UNTIL IT CAN BE FIXED. SINCE BASICALLY THEY TOLD ME IN THE LETTER THAT I COULD DIE IF THIS THING EXPLODES, BUT THEY BASICALLY SAID THAT IT'S ON ME AND THEY CAN'T DO ANYTHING. PRETTY RIDICULOUS THAT THEY HAVE OFFERED HELP IN THE PAST BUT NOW ARE JUST DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

Summary of Complaint

I WAS PULLING OUT FROM MY PARKING SPOT (PARALLEL PARKED) WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN THE STEERING WHEEL JERKED OUT OF MY HANDS AND THE ELECTRIC POWER ASSIST LIGHT POPPED ON. I WAS ON A SIDE STREET BEGINNING TO ACCELERATE AFTER PULLING OUT INTO TRAFFIC. HAD I BEEN GOING FASTER, IT EASILY COULD HAVE CREATED A WRECK. WHEN THE WHEEL JERKED, I SLAMMED MY BRAKES ON. I TURNED THE VEHICLE OFF THEN ON, AND THE LIGHT POPPED OFF. I RE-PARKED IT BECAUSE I WAS AFRAID TO DRIVE IT, AND BEFORE RE-PARKING, THE LIGHT WAS BACK ON. I FOUND THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM AND LOOKED ON LINE (FORD RECALL #15S18, NHTSA #15V340000). WHEN I CONTACTED THE DEALERSHIP TO SCHEDULE REPAIR, I WAS TOLD THAT MY VIN WAS OUTSIDE OF THE RECALL RANGE, EVEN THOUGH IT DID INDEED FAIL THE SAME WAY THESE OTHERS FAILED. BECAUSE IT WAS OUTSIDE OF THE RANGE, I WOULD BE FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS KNOWN DESIGN FAILURE THAT RESULTED IN A NEAR MISS ACCIDENT. I'VE NOT TAKEN IT IN FOR REPAIR YET, HOPING THIS RECALL IS WIDENED TO THE APPROPRIATE RANGE FOR THE SAME FAILURE. I UNDERSTAND IT'S COSTLY, BUT FINDING OUT THIS PROBLEM WAS A KNOWN PROBLEM THAT THEY DIDN'T PROPERLY IDENTIFY POINTS OF CONTAINMENT MADE ME ANGRY.
