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 hybrid. The contact stated that she noticed gas pouring out of her gas tank. She had the vehicle towed to the dealership and there was a hole in the tank about the size of a quarter. The fire department had to be called out due to the fuel leakage. She did not know how the puncture could have happened. She called the manufacturer and was told that they would compile a report but offered no further assistance at the time. The current and failure mileages were approximately 20,000.
