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 2013 Fusion doesn’t have the same track record of power steering failure as the previous 3 model years. Of course, those owners said their steering failed at 60k–100k miles. So this appears to be a classic "wait and see" scenario.

In the meantime, there’s plenty of interior accessory problems to complain about. By themselves, each is a barely a blip on the radar. But combined, they give you that feeling of what the hell have I gotten myself into?

2013 Ford Fusion Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 092014

Fusion 4-cyl

  • 26,617 miles


In October 2012 I purchased a 2013 Ford Fusion SE 1.6L engine with eco boost, which now has approximately 26,000 miles on it. The left side hood latch is not functioning properly preventing the hood from latching securely on that side. It is a significant concern for me that the hood may release in full while the vehicle is in motion. The overall safety of this vehicle becomes of greater concern to me given this recent issue in light of the three prior safety recalls on this specific Fusion model.
