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

problem #1

Jul 162011

Fusion 4-cyl

  • 95 miles


We purchased 2011 Ford Fusion hybrid & picked it up from dealer on 12 Jul 2011 and drove it home. When we drove vehicle next on 16 July 2011, the TPMS warning went off when we were only a couple of miles from home. I turned around to get vehicle home, but noted that the vehicle sounded like tire was flat. I pulled off and saw passenger rear tire was completely flat. We called Ford roadside assistance who changed tire. The man who changed the tire (installed donut) noted that the valve stem was missing. I took vehicle to local Ford dealer who found the valve stem had separated and was inside the tire. The valve stem was replaced by the Ford dealer under warranty as the vehicle had less than 100 miles on it when tire failed.
