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 4-cyl

  • 52,395 miles


On 1/1712013 I was driving back to my office in light traffic when suddenly I heard a ding and noticed red words appeared on my dash where the hybrid gauge normally is. It read brake system failure. I had it towed from my mechanic to the dealership mechanic. I was told it was the vacuum hose and had it repaired. On 2/15/2013, it happened again, twice. First time I was going about 30mph and made a hard right turn to a side street where once again pumping the brakes did nothing. I switched to neutral and coasted to a stop. After 10 minutes I decided to drive home and I would call the mechanics in the morning (they were already closed). En route to my house, which was 3 miles from the failure point, they failed again. Same message, same ding, same problem. No brake power of any sort. I flipped on my hazard lights on, switched to neutral, which did slightly slow the car down, and rolled down a bridge. I took the first hard right turn and was able to get slow enough to grab the emergency brake and turn off the car. It has been towed back to the dealership and I will talk to them, again, in the morning when they open.
