Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2006 Ford Fusion Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 082010

Fusion 6-cyl

  • 30,000 miles


Approximately 3 years after purchase, chrome covering on interior door handles started peeling. In November, 2010, the rear passenger interior door handle snapped. Pieces fell out and the door cannot be opened from the inside. In March 2011, the drivers side rear interior door handle also snapped. Although the doors can still be locked by the remote, they have to be opened from the out side. This is an extreme safety issue in the event that someone needs to exit the car quickly. I have read thousands of similar complaints on-line. The dealer gave me a quote to repair but I do not have the funds. The dealer did send an inquiry to Ford on my behalf but we have heard nothing back. Ford needs to own up to this and do a recall.
