#1 - Accelerator Pedal problem of the 2009 Ford Fusion
2009 Ford Fusion. Attorney sent letter on behalf of client in regards to consumer applying brakes while driving and the passing gear failed to disengage
the consumer attempted to pass a small motorhome. After pulling out of the eastbound lane, a vehicle came around a curve heading west. The consumer decided against passing and immediately applied the brakes. Upon applying the brakes, the passing gear failed to disengage. The gas pedal locked to the floor and the vehicle continued to accelerate. As the vehicle accelerated, the consumer depressed the brake and maneuvered the vehicle back into the eastbound lane. The engine was still running at full throttle, even though she kept her foot on the brake while applying as much pressure as she could. She then put the vehicle into neutral gear, with her foot still pressing full-force on the brake. Although the engine was still running at full throttle, she was able to reduce the speed of the vehicle and came to a stop. After putting the vehicle in the park position, the engine sounded as though it was still racing and she continued to apply the brake. Only after turning off the vehicle, did the engine stop. After letting the vehicle cool off, because the front end was hot and the rear end smelled like hot brakes and burned rubber, the gas pedal was still stuck to the floor and there was no interference from the floor mat. The pedal was stuck at the upper part of the pedal closest to the front of the vehicle. She reached down and forcefully pulled the gas pedal upward to return it to its normal position. During that action, she heard a sound of a click. The dealer was unable to find anything wrong with the vehicle. The failure date was Friday, July 9, 2010.
