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.

When backing up hill into a parking spot, the car does not obey the commands of the driver. Since there is an excessive delay in the throttle, I end up releasing the accelerator completely when I need to slow down because the car does not slow down right away. The car then goes into a "hold" mode where it prevents the car from rolling forward. Once it is in that mode, it does not respond to the accelerator pedal until about one second after the pedal has reached a level where the RPM of the engine would increase significantly beyond the holding RPM. Due to the delay and lack of response during the first part of the pedal travel, the accelerator is down too far when the car finally releases the "hold" on the throttle and the car goes backward at a much higher rate of speed than desired. The only way I can back up hill safely is to apply the brakes fully with my left foot on the brake pedal, rev the engine up with my right foot on the accelerator pedal and control the speed of the vehicle by partially releasing brake pedal with my left foot while holding the accelerator pedal steady with my right foot. The brakes don't have a delay to them. The vehicle is a 2007 Ford Fusion SE 3.0 liter V6 with 6 speed automatic transmission.

When driving up a steep hill and rounding a corner, the speed limit dropped from 55 to 45mph. I tapped the brake to disengage the curse control and attempted to control the speed manually. I was not able to get the car to do 45. It oscillated between 50 and 40mph. I finally hit the set button on the cruise control as the speedometer passed 40M. The distraction of trying to control the vehicle could have lead to an accident since I was not able to devote my full attention to the road ahead of me. The vehicle is a 2007 Ford Fusion SE, V6 with 6 speed automatic transmission.

Fusion 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
When accelerating from 30 mph to 55 mph with the accelerator pedal to the floor, I released the accelerator at about 50 mph. The car continued at full throttle for about 5 more seconds while I moved my foot to the brake and began to attempt to slow the vehicle. The vehicle overshot the intended speed by about 20 mph before it began to slow down to the intended speed of 55 mph. This could have caused a rear end collision if there had been other traffic on the freeway bides the truck tailgating me when I was doing 30 mph. The vehicle is a 2007 Ford Fusion SE, V6 with automatic transmission.

Fusion 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
When traveling at about 35 mph with a Ford Fusion SE, V6 and automatic transmission, the engine stalls on hard braking, requiring the vehicle to be brought to a complete stop in the middle of traffic, shifted to park and restarted. Since I was making a lane change before I realized that the engine had stalled, I was across both lanes while I was in park starting the engine. This could have lead to accident, either by not having power to maneuver or another car could have hit my vehicle while it blocked both lanes. The air temperature was just below 10 degrees, but the engine was warm. On restart, the engine idled at 1500 RPM, which makes stopping the vehicle difficult since the engine fights the brakes.

Car was a 2007 Ford Fusion with merlot paint. Car was one week in my possession, and I had a hazing of the clear coat and solvent popped of the car. I have an appointment for a refinish job. Also, the car had 1700 miles on it and was consuming oil. Dealer watched oil consumption, but has yet to correct the problem on the engine.
