Failure Date: 03/14/2012

I went for an oil change and local center. The rep requested I come over to the car and see something. The battery acid covered the entire top of battery. It metalized the cables corroded the battery pan. The car is 2 years old and 22k miles. All were replaced by Ford under the warranty. I would not normally complain about a battery but this is my second Ford to have the same issue. I had Ford edge prior which the same thing happened but I was past 36k in miles so they considered it wear and tear. I had to replace all wire, battery pan, and battery. Ford needs to review the battery manufacturer they are using in there new cars.

Failure Date: 08/07/2010

Purchased the Ford Fusion se 2010 on 8/4/10 drove it 100 miles and on 8/7/10 it was dead in my drive way. Called road service and it was jumped and towed to dealership. There two days was told there was nothing wrong with the vehicle other than the battery was no good - they replaced the battery. Drove it approximately 900 miles and on 9/5/10 it was dead in the driveway again. Roadservice came jumped the car and I drove it into the dealership they replaced the battery and asked me to bring the car into service after the weekend. On 9/7/10 at 8am I dropped the car at the dealership as per their request. I received a call on 9/14/10 from the service department to tell me that they can't resolve the matter and that an engineer is coming out from Ford corp to look at the car. Not sure what to think at this point maybe I should ask for my money back or another car? also, I have noticed the drivers headrest is really not at all comfortable but that is really the least of my troubles with my new car.

Failure Date: 04/20/2010

I purchased my Ford Fusion in April 2006. Since then, I have had a number of problems. During the same year of purchase, the rear left tail light and a fuse blew. About a 1 1/2 years later the same rear light blew. In 2009, the driver side door handle broke from the inside of the door panel, the air blower began spontaneously coming on by itself when the air or the heat is not on,I replaced a battery and the car began to hesitate when accelerating. Last but not least in 2010, today actually, I park my car and was unable to remove the key from the ignition. I plan to go to the dealership tomorrow to determine the cause and resolution to this particular issue. I have paid over hundreds of dollars for all these repairs, which occurred right after my warranty was up.
