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.

When trying to start the car from park all warning lights illuminated, car would not turn over. Let car reset, and able to turn it over. Ford self system check via dash cluster will show brake and hybrid electric charging system problems but will reset itself after next key cycle. Not able to find codes for problem. Owned car approx 8 months, experienced problem 4 times all within 1 month.

Fusion Hybrid

  • 15,500 miles
I have 15,500 miles on my Fusion and was informed by Ford (window sticker) that I would have 41 miles per gallon in the city and 36 miles per gallon on the highway. A saving for the increased prices of the hybrid of $1,421 each and every years. I was lied to by the staff at the skillman Ford dealership, I am lucky to get 32 miles per gallon, the same as a regular Fusion. I lost money and will not be able to sell the vehicle for the price of a hybrid. Ford Motor Company cheated me out of money and lied on the window sticker.

Fusion Hybrid

  • 7,500 miles
Above date and mileage is an estimate. The second incident occurred on 11-29-14. Stop safety hazard warning light comes on. (indicates hybrid component fault/failure that will cause the vehicle to shut down, fail to start or enter into a limited operating mode). Vehicle looses power. Pulled to side of road. Turned ignition off. Waited a few minutes. Restarted car. This has happened twice in the two years that I have owned the vehicle. The initial time was less than a year prior to the second incident driving at the same speed. Vehicle mileage at the time of the second incident was approximately 14,234. Vehicle was taken to a local Ford dealership after the second incident for check. Description of work done: -several scans were done -code hybrid power train control module was disabled. -no reason why. Could not replicate. This has happened multiple times so it is not a coincidence. It is a dangerous safety hazard in traffic.
