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

WHEN IN MOTION, THE VEHICLE'S BRAKE PEDAL HAS EXCESSIVE TRAVEL, ALMOST NEEDING TO BE PUSHED TO THE FLOORBOARD BEFORE ANY BRAKING OCCURS. THE UNCERTAINTY OVER THE CAR'S BRAKING ABILITY MAKES IT DANGEROUS TO DRIVE. NO ERROR CODES OR ABS LIGHTS PRESENT. LOCAL REPAIR SHOP REPLACED BRAKE PADS AND ROTORS AND FOUND NO AIR IN THE SYSTEM WHEN THEY BLED THE BRAKES. THEY SPECULATED IT IS POSSIBLY THE HYDRAULIC CONTROL UNIT FOR THE ABS. THERE HAS BEEN A RECALL ON EARLIER FUSION MODELS FOR THIS ISSUE, BUT NOT 2012 MODELS FOR SOME REASON.

Summary of Complaint

I GOT THIS 2012 FORD FUSION SE FOR DAUGHTER AND YESTERDAY, SHE CALLED ME TO TELL ME THAT THE "POWER STEERING ASSIST FAULT" SHOWED UP ON HER DASH. AS SHE WAS ABOUT TO TRY TO BACK OUT OF THE DRIVEWAY, SHE COULD NOT TURN THE STEERING WHEEL. SHE HAD TO MISS SCHOOL AND WORK, DUE TO THE ISSUE, BECAUSE I DID NOT WANT HER TO TAKE ANY CHANCES. WHEN I GOT HOME AFTER WORK, TO MOVE IT INTO THE GARAGE, TO CHECK IT OUT, THE DASH CODE WENT AWAY AND IT APPEARED TO BE FINE. AFTER DOING RESEARCH AND CALLING THE FORD DEALERSHIP, THEY FOUND A RECALL FROM 2015 THAT DESCRIBES THIS SAME ISSUE IN 2011-2012 FORD FUSIONS BUT FOR SOME REASON MY VIN WAS NOT INCLUDED, IT SEEMS THAT IT'S THE SAME PART AND ISSUE, THAT COULD/SHOULD INCLUDE MORE VEHICLES. FROM WHAT I'VE BEEN READING AND SEEING, THIS SEEMS TO BE HAPPENING MORE FREQUENTLY, BUT ACTUALLY SEEING THAT PEOPLE HAVE BEEN GETTING INTO COLLISIONS, WITH THE INTERMITTENT COMPUTER GLITCHING OF THE STEERING ISSUE. IT'S JUST A GOOD THING THAT MY DAUGHTER WAS JUST ATTEMPTING TO BACK OUT WHEN THIS HAPPENED. I SEE THAT OTHERS HAVE NOT BEEN SO LUCKY. I PRAY THAT FORD RECALLS THIS AND DOES THE RIGHT THING PRIOR TO ANY SERIOUS INJURIES AND/OR DEATHS, TO AVOID HEAVY LAW SUITS AND TRAJEDY. THIS WAS A ISSUE WITH THESE CARS AND APPEARS TO BE GROWING BY THE NUMBERS AND NOTHING IS BEING DONE AT THIS POINT. DIDN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. I HOPE YOU WILL DO YOUR DO DILIGENCE ON THESE ISSUES AND FIX EVERY ONE OF THEM BEFORE SOMEONE DOES GET HURT. MY DAUGHTER IS DRINVING THE CAR, BECAUSE THERE ARE NOT OTHER ALTERNATIVES RIGHT NOW, BUT I PRAY THAT SHE DOES NOT GET HURT WHILE DRIVING THIS CAR. THANKS FOR YOUR TIME AND CONSIDERATION.

ON SEPTEMBER 26, 2014, I WAS INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT AS WE WERE DRIVING ON A CITY STREET TO WHERE MY PASSENGER SEAT BELT DID NOT WORK UPON FRONTAL HEAD ON IMPACT OR MY AIRBAGS DIDNT GO OFF CAUSING ME TO COLLIDE INTO THE DASH BOARD.
