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.

Airbag light came on at about 85,000 miles. Occurred after starting up after being parked facing the wind on a very windy day. Took to dealer, needs new rcm module. Was told no airbags would deploy until replaced. Apparently it is very expensive repair for something that concerns safety of the vehicle.

The passenger side air bag quit working. The air bag warning light came on and would not go off. Do not know if automobile was moving or still. Had to have replace the inboard and outboard seat zero weight sensors, rail assembly and replace the passenger seat air bag module. It was very expensive for a part of the car that should last more than 54000 miles.

I took my 2007 Ford Fusion to a dealership in regards to my passenger side dash had begun to bulge in the beginning of the year. They stated it was O.K. and I did not need to worry about the airbag deploying. I asked them how much would it be to fix it and they told me that it could not be fixed; and no one recommended how to fix it. The bulge has gotten worse and it looks as if the airbag is going to deploy. I took it back to the dealership on August 19, 2015 and was told that they does not fix cosmetic work or trim.

The air bag light came on and stayed on. I took it to the local Ford dealership. The service rep said that the passenger seat air bag sensor was defective. He said that there were no recalls and it would cost me $868 to fix it. I can't afford it so we're driving it with the light on. I think Ford should replace it because many people have the same or similar problem with their Fusion as well as a host of other makes makes, models, and years....updated 09/22/15

Passenger side airbag is bulging up on one side. I park in a garage and I'm in wi so we don't get extreme heat, so I'm not sure why I'm having a issue. It's either an airbag issue or a dashboard issue. My passenger side airbag light appears to be working only goes on with a passenger or when my purse gets too heavy and its on the seat. Also, my accelerator petal makes a weird static-sounding noise when it's at a certain position. It has nothing to do with speed, it happens at various speeds, so it's only when the petal is held in the same spot which is about halfway down to the floor. If I press the petal down beyond this spot or raise my foot so the petal is above that spot, the noise stops...only to return again when the petal eventually lands back in that problematic spot (about halfway down).

Dashboard around front passenger airbag is bulging up and will likely interfere with proper deployment of the bag in case of accident. This is a chronic problem with first generation Fusion that Ford refuses to address.

On several occasions, primarily in colder weather, the air bag indicator in the instrument cluster on the dash board remains on after starting. This happens unpredictably at random intervals. Once the engine is warm, shutting off the ignition and restarting will resolve the problem. I am told that the air bags will not deploy if the air bag light is on.

Fusion 6-cyl

  • 75,000 miles
Back in June,2014 I noticed something weird on my dash. For some reason the dash above the passenger side airbag is bubbling up. At first I thought it might be the heat from the sun, so I started parking my car in the shade to avoid higher temps hitting the dash. Unfortunately, it did not help. The bubble kept growing and growing. Now it's so large that I am worried that the airbag has become compromised. I am concerned that the airbag may deploy when I'm driving or possible not deploy if I am in a car accident. It appears there are quite a few people complaining about the same problem. Please fix this Ford!! very dangerous!
