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

  • 73,626 miles


1. the 2011 Ford Fusion hybrid is equipped with a power point providing 110 volts alternating current (vac) to a 3-prong receptacle located in the rear seat area of the center console. The 110 vac power point is equipped with a safety cap and a safety twist tab that provide protection from inserting any object into the power point other than the 110 vac electrical device plug. 2. a child leaving our vehicle had a foot entangled with a 3-prong cord connected to the power point, resulting in disassembly of the safety cap from the body of the power point. The disassembled power point exposes two brass electrical contacts with 110 vac. A person attempting to reassemble the safety cap with the power point body while the engine is running may contact the high voltage contacts, resulting in a burn injury or death by electrocution. 3. the power point should be recalled and replaced with a similar device that cannot be disassembled.

At 38,000 miles just over the manufacture warranty had expired the driver's door inside handle no longer opens the door from the inside. The way you must exit the vehicle is to roll down the window and open the door from the outside which is a safety issue. If the vehicle were involved in an accident not an efficient or quick way to exit the vehicle. This is a common problem and Ford does not cover this repair even with the Ford esp coverage so you may want to consider that purchase. So I will pay for this repair along with many other owners of the Ford Fusion, but it is quite apparent that; this is an engineering problem they chose not to address, and they do not stand behind helping customers who have this problem. My other vehicle is a Lexus, and when something breaks such as a seat latch while in the extended warranty I purchased, they fix it no questions asked, something for me to consider the next time I vehicle shop. I don't mind purchasing a new vehicle and paying for it for 5 years but would expect the manufacturer to stand by their product, and to address safety issues quickly.
