Ford Fusion owners have reported 3 problems related to transmission solenoid (under the power train category).
Vehicle shifts very irregularly- seems to go in and out of gear and when stepping on gas pedal it does not respond then jerks into drive gear. Two warning lights came on in dash, small wrench and check engine. An obd code reader was used to determine a fault code of po 772 ( shift solenoid stuck on) and car was taken into a Ford dealer. Initially told that warrant had expired but engine and drive train warranty is for 5 years / 50,000 miles. Dealer inspected and found solenoid defective and transmission bands damaged. Car is be at dealer since June 4, 2013 as of todays date (06-08-13) upon investigating this problem I found hundreds of similar complaints by Ford Fusion owners and thus far no recall by Ford. This problem could cause an accident which could result in injury or even death if occurring on the freeway. Ford needs to recall the Fusion for repair or replacement.

This vehicle has been serviced nine times at dealer with symptoms of transmission slipping between 2nd and 3rd gear. It continues to do the same with harsh transmission engagements, slipping causing rpm's greater than 5000. A vehicle event recorder was installed into the vehicle and problem identified. Valve body has been cleaned, new transmission solenoid, "re-flashed" 2 times with no changes. Ford customer service involved from beginning. At one point received call from customer service district manager stating it is "normal" for the car to shift this way and there is no problem even after the problem has been identified. This continues to be a huge safety issue as the car slips at any time in any traffic. There has not been a solution to fix this problem nor any guarantee. Something has to be done to fix the problem that affects many owners with this 6 speed automatic transmission. Previous complaint odi 10369166.

2010 Ford Fusion sel. Customer writes in regards to continued transmission problems. The consumer stated the transmission would slip harshly and hesitate on acceleration. The recall repair did not correct the transmission problems. It was determined that the valve body and solenoid body were defective. Also, one of the tires was leaking air, there was an issue with the traction and brakes. There were noises coming from the front of the vehicle. The steering wheel would not lock into place, the cd player did not work at times, the driver side visor did not stay in place, the gas over flow tube was inoperative, the vehicle would pull hard when the brake was applied. The rear driver's side door had to be slammed extremely hard, in order to close it. The driver's side seat belt was backwards. The passenger side windshield wiper dragged on the windshield and the vehicle would sometimes surge on its own. Each time the consumer went to the dealer about certain problems, she was told no problems were found.
