While driving the vehicle on the evening of 06/20/2015 the power steering slowly started to go out, then after turning off the car and restarting all together I received the notifications "service advancetrac" and "service power steering now" after searching online to no avail, I had to wait until Monday morning to take the car to a local Ford dealership. I waited 2 1/2 hours for a diagnostic to be ran on my car to be told the steering gear was broken and it would be roughly a $1500. 00 fix on top of what I paid for the diagnostic although a recall is currently pending for this exact issue along with the cars internal cpu. When the cars internal cpu was reset this wiped the error codes letting the power steering resume, but this is only a temporary fix as the cpu could notice again at any time that the steering gear is broken. Ford is currently "reviewing" to see if they will pay for these damages as there currently is a pending recall for this issue, but I have yet to hear back.

My wife was leaving a patient's house, and when she started the vehicle, she had no power steering. She tried turning the car off and back on, but the power steering was still not working. She was able to carefully drive the car to a local mechanic. The mechanic found no codes related to the power steering. A nearby dealer offered to tow the vehicle down and inspect it. They claimed that there was nothing wrong with the car, that there were no codes available, and that there was nothing they could do. The local mechanic found no codes related to the power steering either. The only codes the car was showing were related to a "purge valve" in the gas tank, which was replaced at the dealer. As the source of the problem has not been found, we are looking to replace the car, as the loss of power steering would be dangerous. We will now be required to go drive the car from the dealership to another dealership to attempt to trade it in. Ford media has announced a recall on certain 2011 Fusions built at the hermosillo plant, but we have yet to receive notification or the recall notice on this one. The service center had yet to receive a notification, either. Https://media. Ford. Com/content/fordmedia/fna/us/en/news/2015/05/27/Ford-issues-two-safety-recalls-in-north-America-. Html.

The power steering froze and I was unable to steer the car. The power steering fault indicator came on in the display area. I have experienced this, briefly, many times right after starting the car.

Received a power steering assist fault in the electronic power assisted steering (epas) system losing all steering ability and creating a dangerous situation, researched VIN for Ford recall on issue and was frustrated that manufacture of the vehicle, although at the same facility, was 6 months after Ford VIN range of vehicles placed on the recall list. Ford will not provide cost relief for expected repair cost of $1,600.

While my wife was driving home from work on 6/12 the power steering went out. She had a very difficult time trying to steer the car. It happens twice on her way home first time nearly caused an accident but she was able to coast it into an empty parking lot. She turned the car off and let it sit for a few. She then started it up again and tried to continue home when she got a block away it happened again I had one hell of a time trying to get it to turn into our driveway. Got up the next morning as still the same issue advance trac needs seviced. If Ford wants to turn out a substandard part I won't be buying another Ford product again. No I'm being to it needs a new rack at 55000 miles and will cost around $1800. This is complete bs for a vehicle to need a new rack at that low of miles. This is very dangerous a Ford needs to have a recall for this issue before someone gets hurt or causes an accident. If not sounds like I need to contact an attorney.

My wife was driving home from work when suddenly she experienced a loss of power steering in her vehicle. After trying to keep from being in an accident she was able to pull her 2010 Ford Fusion into a parking lot. After she turned into the parking lot she turned off the vehicle and let it sit for a few seconds then she restarted the vehicle and she was able to proceed a little further. Then it happened for a second time. Once again she turned the ignition off, let it sit for a few moments then restarted the vehicle. She was able to drive a little further until it once again happened as she was turning into our driveway. On the morning of Saturday 6/13/2015 I went out to the vehicle and started it up and tried to back it out of our dive way when the service the advance trac system message appeared. I turned the vehicle off the restarted the vehicle and then a different message appeared. This time it was the service power steering assist message. I then turned off the vehicle and contacted the local Ford dealer and was told that it was a common problem with the Fusion and that I would need to schedule an appointment to have the power steering rac replaced and it would cost around $1,800 to replace. I told the man that was ridiculous for a vehicle that has only 56,787 miles on it. I have researched this and have found that many other owners have experienced this same issue. I feel that this is a major safety issue and if it was not for my wife's quick thinking she may have been involved in an accident. Please research this issue before it happens to someone else and unfortunately cost someone their life. Please feel free to contact me anytime for additional information.

Car notified me of an issue while I was driving. It said power steering assist fault. I was going approximately 45mph. I noticed that the power steering was not working. I was able to make it home, but it was very difficult. When I turned my car off and on again at home, the steering started working again. I haven't had a chance to try it again, but I heard it may be a daily occurance that this goes out. I called my dealership and they said they cannot help me yet because the recall is not officially available.

While driving home last evening the power steering on my car quit working and I had difficulty controlling the vehicle. The indicator light came on stating that there was a system failure in regards to the power steering. This morning when I started the car the power steering was once again working. I took the car to the Ford dealership and was told that there has been a recent recall on this particular problem, but a repair will not be available until July 13th. I was advised to pick the car up and drive it with the defect until the fix became available because nothing can be done at this time. I find this to be dangerous and unacceptable.

My power steering is out in my car. It says power asset fault and then it will say service autotrack. I am not the only one I have looked everywhere and there is a lot of people having the same problems that I'm having. It should be recalled. I will tell everyone I know not to get a Ford unless this problem gets recalled. I don't have the 2000 to fix my car.

This email is to notify you that your web site does not indicate any open recalls for the above listed VIN number. However both the Ford motor company and a car fax report indicates recall 15s14 as a gear box recall that is still open. I was thinking of buying this vehicle and very disappointed that your safety dept records are not correct. My telephone number is 903-729-1981 if you care to call and discuss. Ron.

Went to town and parked the car went in to the store and when I started to leave I noticed that the power steering didn't work. I drove the car home with no power steering. It's a good thing this didn't happen while going the speed limit. The dealer said that this is a common problem my question is why has it not been recalled if it's a common problem.
