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.

Fusion Hybrid

While driving, the driver side seat heater becomes so hot that I thought I was being burned. I detected an unfamiliar odor, but assumed it was another vehicles fumes. Had to turn off the heater. Attempted to use on a few other occasions, thinking that I was being overly sensitive. Upon my last attempt, the indicator lights would illuminate as normal, but would shut off a few seconds later. The heater is no longer working. The passenger side is working normally, but has not been used as frequently as the driver side. Researched and this seemingly is a known issue. Contacted Ford 800-392-3673 and the representative stated that she has heard of this issue, but there is not a recall for this known issue. My case was documented, and the rep stated that I would incur the cost to have the repair done at this time. Hmmmmmmm. I guess it will take numerous serious personal injuries being reported before this issue is formally addressed. I must say that overall, I do love the Fusion !!!
