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.

Fusion 4-cyl

Was driving down the road today, and upon taking off at a green light, a wrench icon came on and the RPM started fluttering and the car wouldn't accelerate. So I pulled over and turned the car off and waited a minute and turned the car and it did fine. About five minutes later, I was on the enter ramp to the interstate and it did it again. Pulled over in the shoulder and turned it off and on again and it ran okay.. as soon as I hit the gas, it did it again. So I turned it off and on again and made it to an autozone to have the engine light read (which came on after the third occurrence.) engine light read P2111 and that the throttle body actuator was stuck open. Called my dealer and they said the whole throttle body would have to be replaced. Then I called my warranty, and they said its not covered. I'm extremely irritated at this situation.. and once I googled it, I noticed quite a few people have had the same problem.. so there should definitely be a recall..
