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.

CarComplaints.com 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?

Front driver side and passenger side windows will not work with one touch button. Turns out after three months of back and forth to the dealer, the molding on the driver side window was faulty allowing water to get in and short out electrical system.

problem #1

Fusion 4-cyl

  • 700 miles
The moon roof window opened with out any button being pressed. Storm rain was starting. There was a lot of auto traffic. I was driving, my wife was sitting next to me and there was a car coming out of a parking lot to the left of me and perpendicular to my car :what happened next simultaneously was: A. auto went into "collision avoidance mode"; windshield several red led warning lights began blinking, and alert noise from auto started, and steering wheel shuttered. The later two actions are not terribly clear to me B my wife started to shout for me to watchout. C I started to press on brakes. Thus avoiding a collision between my car and car to be moving across my path I was told that the car does not stop in any type of collision mode. It just slows down. I did not know whether this avoidance mode was present (at the slow speed I was going in. I did know that when the car was in cruise control and this mode was activated and that avoidance reactions were activated.. I am very concerned that this may happen again. With serious consequences occurring.
