Transmission has had problems since 16,000 miles when I first bought the car. Had it in many times for issues with the transmission not shifting properly at high way speeds. Would slow down and move over to passing lane and speed up and it would jerk. Park to drive and park to reverse would also have the same issues. 3 dealers later they finally found solenoids and another part was bad (about 90,000 miles) for someone to finally find the problem. Had it back in 3 months later to have the same parts replaced again as they went out. Just took it in Nov. 2017 a year later and am being told the transmission is better off being replaced. I complained every 5,000 miles at oil changes to the dealer about the problem that should have been caught under warranty. I'm now stuck without being able to drive my car due to $3,000 estimate for what is wrong that they know of before opening the transmission up which could result in more $$ or pay $5,000 for a remanufactured one.

Failure Date: 02/04/2017

My check engine light came on while I was on my way home from work. While sitting idle at a stoplight, the car warned the engine was overheating so I pulled over and shut it off for 20 minutes. The next morning when I went out to my car, I noticed a large amount of clear fluid had leaked out. On my way to the dealership, the check engine light went off and (according to the dealership) stayed off until I picked the car back up and started driving home. After running diagnostics at the dealership, it turns out that the engine bypass solenoid valve shorted out due to a faulty coolant tee on the heater core inlet. After doing some research, it seems that this was a recall on 2013 Ford Fusion se 1. 6l cars. I contacted my local Ford dealership and was told that my specific 2013 Ford Fusion se 1. 6l was not part of this recall (although it was included in three other recalls from Ford). After a simple search, I discovered that this seems to be a widespread issue with this car-regardless of the recall. Apparently other 2013 Ford Fusion owners not included in the recall are experiencing the exact same engine coolant problem. It also seems the original recall had to be reopened to include additional vehicles. Perhaps it needs to be reopened again.

2013 we had to have the transmission rebuilt (92k miles) in August 2014 had to take back to transmission shop I had a problem with shift solenoid sticking they repaired. In 2015 back to transmission shop same problem. January 25, 2016 back to transmission shop same problem and they have to rebuild the transmission again. There is a major problem with these transmission. I should not have to put 2500. 00 for a rebuilt transmission twice. . 65k miles later it is bad again. I don't drive hills or mountains. I live flat land and I drive a lot of hwy miles. This is bull!!!! I went to see if there are any recalls on it and there is not but I see a whole lot of complaints. All for the same problem. Upon your request I can forward the paperwork for the repairs once my car has been done this week. I want Ford to step up and take care of their customers. When I put the car in r I was holding on to the steering wheel because it jerk so hard I thought it was going to send me through the windshield. I am so disappointed in Ford and I have owned so many of them over the years.

The transmission went out approximately November 1st, 2014 after driving on the highway and having the gear slip and not accelerate past 25 mph with high rpms. When attempting to shift into reverse from a stopped position, the car jolts very abruptly as well. The transmission was rebuilt per aamco recommendation. On April 29th, 2015, the transmission went out again with the same issue as before. Aamco stated that the solenoids needed to be replaced. The total cost for repairs has been $2,500 to date.

Failure Date: 06/04/2013

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.

Failure Date: 10/12/2010

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.
