Power steering. I have had my car for only 7 months when the first incident happen . It had after about a month of me having my car when the service advance trac. Came o I did let the dealership know and all they told me was I had push a button. Well it did go off until a bout a month ago when it came back as I was driving and also that's when my power steering went out at the same time. I then again told them. Well since then I'm still trying to get it fix along with all the other major recalls that are on my car. I did tell them about it and all they told me was there are no recalls on my car. This is very frustrating. Ford does need to do a recall on the 2010 Ford Fusion.

Steering at times gets hard. Then trying to correct, especially in a turn car jerks. Just took a long trip, and it was scary at times. Contacted this site 6 months ago without any response. Ford said that nothing is wrong. They checked and said there was a code for loss of signal to pcm. They had no answer. I know that Ford has a major electronic rack problem. This is a law suit waiting to happen. Sometimes when just a small unevenness in the road appears, it is hard to get car out, and car rolls from side to side because of pressure needed, because the power steering was not available. Car at times is also easier to steer to the left, then to the right. This steering is a major issue. I just talked to a guy with a 2013 c max, and Ford made him pay for a replacement, as 37,631. This is not right, and it is very dangerous. 301-300-2251. Thomas gibson.

Electronic power assisted steering (epas) failure on my 2010 Ford Fusion. Almost caused an accident when the steering became extremely sluggish turning at about 12 mph, and required brute strength to overcome (more than my non-power-steering car I've driven, where any movement above 5 mph eases steering torque). While driving at dorchester rd. Heading to ladson, SC, the steering was fine moments before then just suddenly failed. Good thing this didn't happen at the higher speed of 50 mph posted for dorchester rd. I struggled to get the car home, and there it sits. I've read a recall for 2011 Fusions, but is there a reason this year Fusion not included in that recall. Other older Fords have the same problem.

I started my car and a warning light was on for the power steering and I could hardly turn the wheel. I turned the car off and back on and the car was back to normal. I am scared that this will happen while driving down the road as I have read many stories of that happening. I do not know why Ford has not issued a recall for this as it seems to be a very common occurrence.

I was driving on interstate and power steering stopped working, the power assist fault and service advancetrac message showed on panel. Luckily I did not wreck because that would have been bad. I had the car towed to Ford dealership they said car was not covered by recall or warranty, car has 56,000 miles. Ford you should recall for this problem this could cause a wreck with possible fatalities .

I was driving home after picking up my 9yr old from school,when vehicle in front of me came to an abrupt stop,I had to swerve right to avoid hitting them and hit my brakes"at this point my vehicle shut off completely in the middle of traffic I had to restart it then drove about 10 miles when my car started chimming and the service power stearing now and advance track control warnings came on I had no control of my vehicle I could not turn the wheel at all it was locked I managed to pull to the side of the road with extreme effort I thought I was going to break something trying to turn the wheel just slitely to get to side of road car had to be towed it undrivable and completely unsafe my son could have been seriously injured. Ford has recalled these cars for the same issue in 2011 and beyond why if they have the same exact function and parts not recalling these 1500$ to fix that I don't have,ive taking great care of this vehicle but have had nothing but problems the same day this happened I received a factory recall for the purge canister and gas tank,the car when I bought it was burning up calipers wheels were coming loose break pads shearing off and rotor after rotor pad after pad and 3 calipers and a battery later because break fluid shot out of my reservoir onto my battery shorting it out conducting a straight feed from pos to neg. Now this this is so dangerous if I was a less exsperianced driver this could have been tragic!!!is that really what it takes for this billion dollar company to be held accountable I mean we already payed for the vehicle least they can do is fix the problems they no have existed for along time before people die.

My steering wheel is "locked". It has been doing this for a while now, but I would just turn the car off and turn it back on and it would work. Well on Thursday morning 9/14/2017 this didn't work anymore. I've researched this problem and learned there was a recall for this very same issue on the 2011 Ford Fusion, by the way my car is a 2010 Ford Fusion. These cars have the same electric power steering and what makes it so bad they are being replaced with the exact same part that is potentially defective. My local dealership says since it was not on the recall list I will have to pay for parts and labor because my car is a 2010 model but the recall is for the part, not the car. I don't feel I should be held financially responsible for a defective part just because it was installed in a vehicle not on the recall list.
