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. Notes: The 2011 Fusion builds off the 2010's reputation. That's not a good thing.

The first thing that jumps out is the ridiculous amount of power steering complaints. It grinds, it squeals, and it eventually just fails.

And if losing power steering isn’t enough for you, how about a sudden loss of engine power? That combination is enough to achieve clunker status.

2011 Ford Fusion Owner Comments

The transmission or engine slams at various speeds and starting and stopping the transmission slams the car forward. The rear view mirror has started to peel away from the glass causing major vision problems. I asked the dealer about the issue and they told me to call customer service. Needless to say I still have the same mirror.

While driving on the highway to work on January 29, 2016 I turned on my wipers to clean the windshield after I turned the wipers off they stopped in the middle of the windshield, effecting my vision while driving. Once off, they will intermittently turn themselves on and off for a period sometimes stopping in the field of vision.

Wipers quit working in middle of windshield. Attempt to speed up delay and will not slow down. If operator tries to slow the delay speed down speed will not decrease. Transmission slams after highway travel and locks up drive tire at times.

Every time I drive in pouring rain, it is very hard to see and have to slow way down. The wipers are not fast enough to keep the rain off windshield on this 2011 Ford Fusion. This is a safety issue and should be corrected by Ford. (I had a Buick before this car and it had a fast wiper speed). I believe this windshield motor should be recalled and replaced with a faster motor. Looks like I will be buying a Buick next time.
