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.

2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid Owner Comments

problem #5

Fusion Hybrid

  • 83,000 miles


While on travel, I went to start my car and got a warning message that the power steering needed to be serviced. There was no earlier indication (noise, periodic failure, etc.) that power steering was on the way out. Thankfully I was not driving at the time. Online research revealed a recall for nearly all later models 2011-2015, but not mine for the exact same issue.

While driving at 30 mph, service advance trac lights came on dash, followed by red service power steering light on dash, then service power steering now light and loss of power steering. Extremely difficult to steer into parking space. Not drivable. Towed to dealer. Supposedly repaired after 3 days at dealer. Six days later same thing happened, still in my driveway, not yet towed back to dealer.

While pulling out emerging on the highway traffic going approximately 25 mph, I felt a slight shutter in the cars service advancetrac warning light came on. This issue occurred at approximately 25,000 miles as well but the problem cleared itself after a few days in the Ford dealership could not find an error code. We tried turning off and restarting the car as well as using the advance trac button but it doesn't work.

This is the 3rd incident of this same problem, first time reporting it to NHTSA. 2010 Ford Fusion hybrid was traveling at 35mph, normal conditions and abruptly lost all power to the steering system. Steering was almost impossible to influence, hence causing an extremely unsafe condition. Advanctrac also had faults on dash, and would not operate. Rumors indicate this problem is caused by low voltage, tire pressure low, or other issues. This issue could easily lead to injuries and/or death due to this malfunction. Widespread reports of this issue are on the internet, but have not been reported.
