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

I purchased a 2006 Fusion on 8-12-06 after an initial test drive. The car appeared to be free from any cosmetic defects. When picking up the vehicle after the papers were signed. However, the more I drove the car, the more I noticed a defect in the windshield glass. I was not able to put my finger on the problem until reading a post here from another Fusion owner. It is most noticeable when making a turn in the vehicle, as the defect is most pronounced when looking through the glass at an angle, such as looking to the right through the passenger side of the glass. I also sat in the passenger side of the vehicle and looked through the glass at an angle on the driver's side and can see the defect there as well. It does not seem to be a problem when looking straight ahead through the glass. The defect is a series of 'lines' vertically throughout the glass so that the glass looks warped. I have not contacted the dealership about this yet but will bring it to their attention when the first service is due.

Low visibility out of the rear windshield can pose a danger when backing up in parking lots or out of driveways since sometimes the road cannot be seen and distance to other vehicles cannot be estimated. No backup warning system was available as an add-on like the Ford Explorer and other Ford models. This should be a standard feature in all models of the vehicle as it would provide safety in backing of the vehicle if not at least an option to add to the purchase.

My windshield had serious distortions throughout the entire glass. Varying degress of magnification caused eye strain and headaches. It was dangerous driving the vehicle in this condition and not a pleasant experience. My dealership replaced the windshield only to have the new one be even worse. The new windshield is so bad it's as though I'm looking through a wet windshield that has not been wiped. The dealership has acknowledged the replacement is bad and that it might be indicative of a larger problem. They plan on contacting Ford. I've had the car for only one week at the time of typing this.
