car   Check Engine Light On problem 5
Failure Date: 05/16/2015

I was driving down the highway at approximately 65mph and came up behind a truck doing about 50mph. I changed lanes and went to pass the truck. As I passed the truck my car accelerated slowly and seemed to not switch gears at the right time, causing a hard shift and a "chug" feel. I passed the truck and slowed down to 60mph and as the car shifted again, it caused another hard shift and "chug" feel. This seems to be a common issue with Ford Fusions. Mine didn't start happening until after the pcm update recall that was done on 2/26/15. I took it into Ford after it happened the first time and they told me that since there is no wrench on the dash and no check engine light with a code, they can't find anything wrong and cannot replicate the problem I described to them. This is ridiculous that many cars have an issue but it looks like since there is no one that has been significantly injured or killed in an accident due to it, that it isn't being fixed. Please recall this and fix it before someone loses their life from this.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 9
Failure Date: 06/28/2014

For several months the vehicle has been randomly shutting off mid-drive. Followed by that the check engine light and a wrench light would light up. A week ago we received letter in the mail from Ford saying that our vehicle is eligible for new throttle body since there has been issues since manufactured, which perfectly explained our problem. We took it to Ford, where they replaced the throttle body. However, only a week later the car is back to the same throttle body part problem. On Saturday, 6/28/14 at around 11:40pm the car turns off mid-drive right before I cross over a major intersection, rt 130 and rt 30 in collingswood, NJ area. I quickly braked and turned the engine completely off before I passed the white line. I sat through an entire green and red light. Once the light turned green again, I started the car back up and pressed my gas pedal. The car instantly turned off again, where I was now caught in the intersection. There was no momentum, so I very slowly coasted through during the green light, yellow light, and possibly some of the red light. Luckily, I made it through the intersection out of harm, but I was at a great risk of getting t-boned by oncoming traffic on a major street such as route 130 especially late at night. Obviously, the new throttles do not fix the problem. I no longer feel safe driving this car after this near fatal incident. Is Ford going to wait until there is fatalities from this manufactured malfunction before they act and recall this make and model?.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 10
Failure Date: 05/23/2014

While driving my vehicle it suddenly felt like it stalled, but it actually had not. Before I could safely pull off the road it began violently jerking the whole car. Gas and brake controls were effected and the car was difficult to get off the road safely and difficult to stop it from moving forward once I got off the road. I quickly put it in park and turned it off. The check engine light came on as well as a wrench light during this incident. After about 5 minutes I turned the car back on and it seemed to be running fine. I started to drive to the body shop I use and after a couple minutes it did it again in the middle of an intersection. The car was extremely difficult to control and I was scared I would be hit by another car. After making it off the road again, I turned the car off. I eventually did get it to my body shop, but the defective throttle body could have resulted in a serious accident. Ford should recall this part and fix it!.


 
car   Check Engine Light On problem 11
Failure Date: 12/03/2013

While traveling on the local highway, the car lost power and started to shake. The service and check engine lights appeared on the dashboard. Luckily it was not rush hour and the traffic was light. After pulling off of the road, I was able to turn off the car and back on. The engine appeared to operate normally. The incident happened again a few miles later. This time the check engine light remained on after the restart. I was able to successfully drive the car to the local dealership. The dealer stated that the throttle body needed to be replaced. Luckily I have an extended warranty and it only cost me $100, unlike some of the other folks who have reported the same issue. This could have been much worse if the traffic was heavier or if I was unable to get to the side of the road quickly.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 12
Failure Date: 11/03/2013

Driving approximately 70mph at night on the interstate when engine stopped producing power. Rough idle and vibration, forcing me to coast to the shoulder. Pressing gas pedal had no effect even though engine was running. I attempted to restart and was successful. This occurred four times during my 30 mile trip. Each time I was forced to coast to the side of the road during moderate traffic. Once on a side street I was forced to stop in the driving lane as there was no shoulder. Very dangerous. On all of the occasions the wrench light illuminated as well as the check engine light. I called the dealer the next morning and they were very familiar with the problem. My car was out of warranty, so I was forced to pay for the part and labor. Ford knows that there is a faulty part that causes a hazardous loss of power and control of the vehicle. Error code was p2111.

The failure mileage was 93,677. Returned by usps on 11-15-2013. Second attempt on 11-20-2013 failed.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 14
Failure Date: 10/23/2013

Tried to start vehicle after filling up on gas, already had about 1/4 tank prior to fill up, recently driving for several miles (car is warmed up fully) and it immediately stalled. This had never happened to me, and it occurred to me that just before the gas fill up I noticed somewhat rough engine response in a very short drive from across the street. I've read that there are issue with throttle body faults on Fusion and escape that do not log under normal odb 2 codes after turning engine off. I never saw the check engine light come on.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 15
Failure Date: 10/15/2013

Driving at highway speed when vehicle died, having complete loss of power. Wrench light and check engine light both came on. There was no shoulder to pull over onto and many large 18 wheelers driving by. I pulled over in someone's driveway, turned the vehicle completely off, inspected under the hood and around the vehicle with no findings, and then attempted to restart. The vehicle restarted but had difficulty turning over. I continued to drive for approx 5 more miles when the incident occurred a second time. On the second time the vehicle had loss of power but the engine remained running. There was no throttle response, from depressing the gas pedal. Once I pulled over on the shoulder the engine began rocking the car violently. I immediately turned off the vehicle and let it rest for 5 minutes. I restarted the car once again, this time without difficulty and drove it straight to an auto shop. The mechanic performing work on the car states the error code was p2111 and was the throttle body causing the problem.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 16
Failure Date: 10/14/2013

I was driving on the highway and the car loss power to accelerate. I pulled the car to the side of the highway and turned the vehicle off and restarted the vehicle. I returned back on the highway and the car once again loss power and was stuttering and would not accelerate the engine. I pulled the car off the highway again and turned the car off and restarted the car once again but this time the check engine light stayed on. I took the car to the dealership and they replaced the throttle body .

car   Check Engine Light On problem 17
Failure Date: 10/09/2013

While driving vehicle the speed became to rapidly decrease while the check engine light came on and the car begin shake and sputter. Tried driving again and realized that I was fine as long as I did not go over 40mph. Had to have me car towed home because of the distance between my job and home. Called around, had the code read on the car and it was a "p2112" error code which pointed to the throttle body failure. Contacted Ford and was told that although this is a known issue, I would have to pay for my own part-labor. Paying $445 on tomorrow to have the car repaired. I just purchased the car in January 2013, and me paying for repairs on tomorrow means that I cannot pay my car note. This is horrible since the representative at Ford customer assistance stated that this is a known issue. I've seen multiple posts online regarding the same thing. This is also a safety hazard, had I been going faster on the interstate (I had not made it on yet when the issue first started) myself or someone else could've been seriously injured or killed because of the sudden stop.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 19
Failure Date: 09/19/2013

The car stalled in the middle of airport traffic. The wrench light came on and the check engine light. It occured again on the FL turnpike travelling at 75 mph. We no longer drive on the highways and it has happened 3 more times. Research says it is the throttle position sensor, and the only fix is to replace the throttle body.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 23
Failure Date: 09/01/2013

I was traveling on a two-lane paved road in a 50 mile an hour zone when I felt the car start to decelerate. I pushed on the gas pedal but nothing happened and the car continued to slow down. I was able to pull over at the intersection of a side road where I shut the car off. I started the car back up and proceeded out into the main road. Less than a mile down the road the car started to decelerate again and I turned onto my street and coasted to a stop. Both times the check engine light and the wrench icon on the dash came on. When I had the cause of the check engine light diagnosed, I found out that the car's throttle body had failed. I could only order the part through a Ford dealership and the closest one is 40 minutes away from me.
