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

Jun 252013

Fusion 6-cyl

  • 135,138 miles


Driving on interstate 5 evening commute, going up a hill when the engine lost power, reaching a maximum speed of 20mph with the accelerator pedal pressed down fully. The ESC light and a "wrench" light both illuminated. Was able to safely exit the interstate and turned the car off. After a few minutes I restarted with the aforementioned lights remaining off. Vehicle ran fine. Took it to the Ford dealer the next day and was told the throttle body would have to be replaced, which I rejected at the time. The vehicle ran fine until 1 day past a year from the first incident (June 26, 2014). The same thing happened twice, once at 60mph and again at 40mph. It occurred again on June 27, 2014, however this time from a stop. I began to accelerate from the stop sign and barely made it across the intersection. Each occurrence I turned the engine off and restarted, the vehicle ran fine. I did a web search on the issue and found numerous other Ford owners are experiencing the same thing with model years 2005, 2006 and 2007.
