Failure Date: 08/01/2013

Vehicle stalled without warning in heavy traffic. Pulled off, restarted. Resumed normal operation. Stalled again. Restarted again. Began stalling at lights. Had to trim gas pedal while stopped to keep running. Car stalls on acceleration b/w 2nd and 3rd gear (6 speed manual). When car stalls while underway, major shudder occurs. Has gone into limp mode but after restart will be normal operationally for a short time and then without warning cut out. Extremely dangerous situation, in particular when accelerating from a stop or into traffic or if successful doing that, stalling without warning at speed and with cars/trucks bearing down on you. At one of the above stalls, had tractor trailer bearing down on me without an ability to remove the car from road in that particular area. Throttle body codes p2111 and p2112 indicating bad throttle body. Very common occurrence apparently among the 2010 through 2012 Ford Fusions. Requesting a recall and reimbursement for throttle body which I have replaced.

Failure Date: 05/11/2013

Stopped at an intersection and went to accelerate and had no throttle control the wrench light came on. Car idled through intersection and rolled into gas station. When I then turned it off and then restarted it and the wrench light was gone. Car seemed fine for approximately two weeks, and then the same thing happened again. This is a very big safety issue.

Failure Date: 09/01/2012

As I was driving down the road, my vehicle "stalled" ('limp" home mode) for no reason, the transmission/throttle control indicator light appeared on the instrument panel. I safely pulled the car over, as I slowed down the vehicle began to "gerk". The only way I was able to stop this was by putting the car in park and shutting off the engine. This happened after I had been on the road for about 15-20 min. I pulled back on to the road and a very short time later it happened again. I pulled over, shut the car off and started it back up and again it was "fine" (operational). I then made it the rest of the way home. This happened late on a Saturday evening of labor day weekend. I took the car to the dealership on Tuesday and on my way there it went into "limp home mode" 4 times in a 7 mile commute. Ford did a diagnostic test and informed me that it would need a new throttle body. I am waiting to hear from Ford if they are going to cover the expense as this is a known issue. The Ford dealership told me it would be $460. 00 +tax to perform the repair.
