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 #10

Christine brackett: The inside door handle broke on front passenger side and driver side. They have been breaking for over two years now. The price to fix this is going to be $243.50 and the Ford Motor Company will not fix it and will not give a percentage off. I am not the only one who is having this problem. It is all over the internet ways to fix this problem because Ford will not fix. Or do anything. This is a saftey haxzard if you have a wreck or imerge in water you would not be able to get out. I think your department needs to get involved....they recall the Ford F150 for the same thing, I am 68 years old and if I get into a wreck they will be no way for me to get out of my car.

Wrench light appeared on dash and while driving the car on the city streets the car has a sluggish start and then a bit of a burst and then light power as I accelerate. Also I have had to change door handles and locks 3 times since I have purchase. The handles just snap off. The car will unlock but I have to manually lock most locks and open the car by putting down the window.

When driving the wrench light comes on and the car looses power. I can't accelerate. If I pull off the road and turn off the car and turn it back on it fixes it. Sometimes the check engine light comes on after that.

My wife went to exit the vehicle and the interior handle gave way. The handle still operates, but you must now manually lock the door. A few weeks later I went to exit the vehicle from the drivers seat and that door handle broke completely. Now I have to lower my window and use the outside handle to open the drivers door. Last month the rear door on the passenger side stopped locking automatically and electronically. You must manually lock that door as well.

Millage and date are approximate but very close. The drivers door inside door handle broke, this failure made it impossible to open the car door from the inside. I have pictures documenting the failure which show the location of the failure. This could become very dangerous if the handle broke in a situation where an emergency exit was needed. I have called Ford and registered a complaint with them about this, I have also done some research online and from talking to my local dealer I have found that this is an entirely all to common occurrence. I am just now getting around to fixing this because the door latch has now stopped working (2/13/2011, ~38.000mi), I am assuming the failure of the door latch is a direct result of the broken interior handle and letting it go without being repaired.

Keys cannot be removed from ignition because of defective shifter mechanism. Button becomes stuck due to poorly manufactured piece and car can shift out of gear and roll away and cause injury. Keys can't be removed, doors can't be locked. $400+ to fix and not covered by warranty, even though a technical service bulletin was issued regarding the part? this should be considered a recall as it is a widespread problem. A quick google search revealed hundreds of other customers with the same problem! have not repaired the problem, because like I said, it is not covered by warranty and I can't afford it. This is dangerous! I just bought this car!
