While driving on the highway my 2014 Fusion cut off. A warning indicator popped up that said "transmission not in park". We had to coast off to the shoulder, fortunately there were no cars in the lane we had to cross to get to the shoulder. Later today (the same day) it happened a second time. The car loses all power. We were driving past the dealership we use, so we left the car with them to be fixed and have the oil changed. We will be waiting for the outcome the first of the week,but felt it necessary to report this since others have had the same issue.

2 warning service errors will show up and power steering becomes disabled as driving on residential street. Power steering became completely disabled by the time the tow truck came to pick it up. Mechanic stated it was the same codes as the recall for 2011 Ford Fusions. Had to take it to the Ford dealer to have it correctly fixed. Stated it was the steering rack assembly. Looked up issue and many others with Fusion has the same exact issue but no recall on 2010 models. Same issue and fix for the Ford Fusions with recalls (2011 and above) extremely dangerous as power steering went out and could have caused a life threatening crash. Luckily my fiance (future husband) was driving the car as I would have not been strong enough to safely pull over by turning the wheel.

Hello, my name is melissa monreal and I bought a brand new vehicle from Ford three years ago and just recently, when my car was in park, I shifted the gear and it went in reverse. I got scared and shut the car off. It did not turn on after that and it had to get towed to galpin Ford in north hills. Ford told me that it was an eroded transmission cable that I had to pay out of pocket to repair. I do not understand why my brand new car has an eroded part in it. I live in southern California where are there no hazard weather conditions. I googled how you could have an eroded cable and it is from acid. Is there something else wrong with my car and I am in danger to drive it. Ford has been unhelpful and basically telling me there is nothing they can do. I feel like Fords parts are not up to safety standards by my case and would like an investigation done with Ford. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you! melissa monreal (818) 201-7344.

My daughter's 2010 Ford Fusion power steering went out while driving after and was because she had a low tire. The advance trac system light is on but no power steering. We've had it looked atbut nobody can give me a solution and it's a $100 just to have the dealer run a diognostic on it. I've been doing some research and this appears to be a common problem with these Fusions and most are replacing the whole steering rack averaging around $1500 to replace. I think Ford needs to do a recall because of the danger of the power steering going out while driving.

When I came out a couple hours later, the power steering worked. . Read more...
