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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: Ford significantly updated the Fusion for the 2010 model year. We wish they hadn't

Throttle body issues have led to a ton of reports about a sudden deceleration and loss of power while driving. Ford issued a “customer satisfaction program” in March 2014 that, unsurprisingly, has left very few customers satisfied.

2010 is also the year we started seeing complaints about the power steering failing. Throttle and steering failure? Yeah, that’s why this is a clunker.

The contact owns a 2010 Ford Fusion. When attempting to unlock the vehicle, the doors failed to unlock properly. The contact had to reach out the windows and use the exterior door handles to exit the vehicle. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 160,000.

Attempted to exit the drivers door to obtain fuel. Internal door latch failed and would not open door. Had to lower drivers window and use outer door latch to open door. I believe this to be a significant safety issue as it would hinder or prevent egress from the vehicle in the case of a fire or flood, especially if the electrical system were disabled.

I stopped the car to close the gas fill lid, engine running, went to get back in and all doors were locked, they locked themselves. It was over 90 degrees out, lucky I had my cell phone to call my wife to bring her keys so I could get back in. If my grandkids had been the car, it could have been a scary problem.

Took car for oil change. Noticed after car wasn't locking on driver's side. Passenger then noticed interior driver's side door handle was cracked and not flushed with door. Door no longer locks essentially leaving my car unprotected from theft.

2010 Ford Fusion purchased in December 2010 continues to have the hood released when driving. The vehicle has been taken back to pauli Ford many times since I owned the car.....without success in fixing the problem, I have informed pauli Ford/St. Johns Michigan and also Ford Motor Co. Of the problem and that my concern is that while driving an accident may occur. The last date the hood opened is below but the problem has continued since the vehicle was owned.

  • 7,722 miles
I own a 2010 Ford Fusion hybrid with 7,722 miles. Yesterday, while traveling on the interstate (in sd) at 80 mph, the right front door spontaneously opened. (there seemed to be a safety latch similar to one on the hood of a car, so it popped open and the interior "lock/unlock" switches opened but the door itself did not open any distance.) we checked the lock mechanism and also tried to recall if we could have done anything to cause the door to open but could find/recall nothing.

The hood on my 2010 Ford Fusion hybrid unlatches itself at interstate highway speed. The safety catch has successfully restrained the hood from flying open completely. There have been four incidents with three different drivers since the car was delivered. The date below was the first incident.
