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.

I had the same problem with creaking and clunking noise in the front end, mostly heard when parallel parking. I brought it to fette Ford and the fixed the problem with no argument. I would check again, try talking with the service manager. Tell him that they already fixed blue 07 Fusion SE with the same problem. I also got a free loaner car, it took 3 days to fix. Hope this helps.

2007 Ford Fusion - cracks in front subframe effecting steering yesterday I was informed by a Ford dealer, don reid Ford in maitland Florida, that the likely explanation for the "notchy" feel in my steering wheel on my 2007 Ford Fusion is probably due to cracks at weld seams in the front subframe of the vehicle. I was told by another Ford service tech that the issue could also be a bad steering column intermediate shaft as a result of this condition. This vehicle is 1 1/2 years old and so far the dealer is thinking it is not covered under warranty. I was told by this Ford tech that the weld cracking problem is a "known issue" at Ford and he agrees 100% that it is a safety issue. I can feel looseness / clunking in my steering when going over bumps and turning. This is not an alignment issue since, on the Ford Fusion, the front alignment is not adjustable. I am very concerned as to the safety of the vehicle and am being told it may cost over $1,000 to repair this obvious manufacturer defect. I first noticed this issue a few weeks ago on Friday, August 1st while making a 3 point turn in a tight parking lot. The condition is progressively getting worse. Please help.
