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.

My driver's side door would not open from the inside, I would have to have someone let me out from the outside. This is very dangerous and if I had not been in a safe spot to exit the car it could have been bad. There was no warning or damage to the car leading up to this. My mechanic said that he has had at least 3 other Ford fusions come in with the same problem. I have another friend who had the same issue with her Ford fusion and the dealer said that there was not a recall so there was nothing they could do.

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.
