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.

Fusion 6-cyl

  • 60,046 miles
Without warning or any known cause, the driver side door lock mechanism is jammed, thus preventing me from exiting the vehicle. I have to take down the electronic window on that door, and pull the handle from the outside. This is a serious safety issue that prevents me from immediately getting out if the car in case of emergency, especially when I'm carrying my 10-year-old daughter to and from school or extracurricular activities. I have checked online, and this seems to be a common complaint for owners of the Ford Fusion SE 2007. There definitely needs to be a recall. This just happened out of the blue. Please assist. It is not fair that Ford customers should have to pay for something we did not cause. Thank you.

Interior door latch (driver's door) fails to open. I cannot get out of my car without rolling down the window and opening the door from the outside. Also door will not lock when car is locked. I have read several complaints on this NHTSA site and other forums with numerous other people who are experiencing the same problem with their Ford Fusion. Please investigate this issue and initiate a recall if warranted on the interior door latches of the Ford Fusion. This is indeed a safety concern - especially if someone must get out of the car quickly - also lock failure could be serious security problem.

I went to get out of my car when I got home from work on Friday and my inside door handle broke. Luckily I was parked and at home when this occurred. This could have been bad if it was a situation where I had to get out of the car in a hurry and was not able to. I think Ford should offer a recall on this problem cause this could be a deadly situation.

I am from California and was driving in glendale, Arizona at 1:00 a.M. on 06/30/12. The signal I came to was flashing red. Cross traffic had flashing yellow light. Assuming the cross traffic also had a red flashing light (as in California) I proceeded through the intersection. I was T-boned by a large delivery truck. The side/curtain airbag did not deploy!! I sustained numerous injuries for which I was hospitalized for 9 days. No one was in the car with me, thank god! a few days after the accident, I spoke with the officer that arrived at the scene. He told me that when he saw the amount of damage to my car, he thought he would be "calling the fatal team"....updated 08-10-12 Ford Motor Company needs to do a recall on, not only the Fusion models, but on all of their cars. I do not trust Ford and will never own one again. I have contacted Ford regarding this issue and also an attorney, but I hate to think of all the other drivers out there who assume the airbags work in their cars when possibly they are defective. The number of cases I've read about since my accident shocks me. Ford should have done everything they could after the first incident. Be careful driving your vehicles...especially if it's a Ford. Get your airbags checked asap!!!! updated 08/14/2012

Dash pad has separated at edge of passenger airbag. Car has not been in any crashes or any abnormal rough treatment. Dealer looked at dash and said it was not covered by warranty. This car has been well taken care of, 1 owner car, scheduled service done at the dealership only. This seems to be a defect that the dealer should fix.

Fusion 6-cyl

  • 129,000 miles
Inside door handle became inoperative requiring window to be lowered to open door from outside handle. Dealer installed new door handle due to internal handle cable retainer breaking. This part failure creates a very unsafe condition preventing a fast exit from vehicle in an emergency situation. This is unacceptable.
