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: Has the power steering started to show signs of failure in the 2014? Yeah, a little. Am I confident it will become a bigger problem over time? Yeah, a lot.

2014 Ford Fusion Owner Comments

Headliner is falling down and blocking driver's view out the rear window. Car had 3 attempts at a repair, including a "robust" repair by Ford engineers, however the problem persists and is a safety concern. Dealership advised that Ford is unwilling to replace the headliner as promised, due to unavailable part and the fact that it will happen again. We were told this is a problem with other Ford Fusion vehicles.

From date of purchase to 9/24/14 I noticed cloudy blotches and streaks varying in number and size according to the direction looking and type of day on the rear window. At first I thought the window just had not been cleaned well. Looking through the rear view mirror these areas affect the drivers visual field by distorting and distracting the driver view. The Ford mechanic verified seeing this & notified Ford dealer hot line who also verified this issue was present. Also that this issue occurs during the tempering process of the glass & that there was no fix for this issue. I feel that a huge safety issue is present due to this issue which affects visual field of drivers & because it is impossible to get use to it because the blotches & streaks change continually according to type of day from sunny to cloudy or direction driving in or just how U might be looking at it.

The interior of the car has a toxic smell from the carpet causing occupants to have migraine. The dealership steamed the carpet and it is same if not worse, I just don't believe it is safe for long trips especially in cold weather when opening the windows is foolish. Please advise on possible solutions. The dealership says there is nothing the can do to rid the car of the smell.
