2007 Ford Fusion Owner Comments

problem #8

Jul 102017

Fusion S 2.3L

  • Manual transmission
  • 67,700 miles


This is a common fault in many Focus, Fusion and other models and Ford is well aware of it. A sensor that's located behind the instrument panel goes bad and prevents the A/C compressor from turning on, the part itself is cheap but since the whole instrument panel has to come off to replace it the tab adds up quickly (takes between 5 and 7 hours to complete the job).

Fusion SE 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,000 miles

I should have known this car was worthless when I started having issues in less than two years. Apart from the first year of buying this brand new car, I never had a functioning air condition unit, and would have to get it repaired every year (since 2008 or 2009) into 2016 when they finally realized it had something to do with the engine always running cooler than normal. So I spent some pretty bucks for the air condition issues alone.

Fusion SE 2.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles

Was ironically just bragging to friends about how reliable our Ford Fusion was. To be completely honest, we had a VERY knowledgeable friend install a K&N Cold Air Intake kit 69-3514TTK on our 4-cylinder Fusion. We researched and confirmed nothing but positive reviews about the intake and the Fusion DOES have noticeably better hp. We also noticed that the A/C had been having issues blowing cold air on some days so I bought a can of A/C recharger and it reported it as "low" on the gauge. Filled it to "Full" and on the drive home the Air Conditioner just up and stopped working. Fan blows but not cool and it's HOT in Arkansas in the summer. It appears to be the evap sensor, but my friend hasn't been free again to come look yet. We'll find out soon and hopefully get it fixed but this and the other reports on this site most certainly make me want to avoid buying Ford again in the future. I bet Ford will probably just attribute the A/C failure to the mod we made even though it was an improvement.

We had just had the AC refilled and about 2 weeks later it quit working. We took it back to the shop that filled it thinking something hadn't been tightened. Found out that after diagnoses circuit was telling computer that car was already too cold (July...in the Carolinas....) and wouldn't kick on the AC. The problem is that they have to remove the entire dashboard to get to the circuit behind the glove box. Our guy was only going to charge us about $300. $30 of that was for parts. Called the dealership...$900...That's why I never got it fixed. We didn't have the $300 to spend, let alone the 12 hours it would've taken to have it fixed, let alone what the dealership was going to charge.

We were going to get it fixed with our tax refunds this year, but the car was totaled (not due to AC chip)...that was caused by someone making a left hand turn into us without bothering to signal, or you know...LOOK where they were driving.

Yet another problem with the Ford Fusion....I'm shocked, really. The AC went out right in the beginning of summer. Convenient. I replaced the sensor, and that worked, momentarily. Next step, diagnosis. However, at this point its not even worth fixing. I'm selling it tomorrow. 5 years later, and about $10,000 in repair costs...I'm done.

Fusion SEL V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 105,000 miles

2007 Ford Fusion, SEL had the air conditioner quit on one of the hottest days of the summer. Took the car to my local Ford dealer the next day and was told the compressor was bad and needed to be replaced.

A few days earlier I was experiencing a problem with sudden loss of power, wrench light came on, so I shut car off and when I restarted it the light was gone and it accelerated and drove like nothing happened.

Sooo...While air conditioner was being fixed, I told the dealer about this loss of power problem and to get a diagnostic code to see what happened. Ford dealer said the throttle body needed replacement (that is what caused the loss of power), spark plugs needed to be replaced and oil change and filter for a total of parts and labor of over $3,000. Two months later the air conditioner stopped working again, this time the dealer said that an O-ring must have been installed wrong and that is why the unit stopped working. No charge for the 2nd visit.

Fusion ES

  • Automatic transmission
  • 67,800 miles

Well, I haven't had any issues with my fusion up until last Saturday. She's sitting in the shop now because the AC stopped blowing cold air abruptly. I thought it might just be the freon, even though its a newer vehicle, possibly there might be a leak. Well I did some research because I like to be aware of any issues before the mechanic tells me of them, and per many websites for cars, I found that the most common AC complaint for the 2006-2007 fusion models is something called an evaporator discharge air temp sensor. The part alone costs about 23.00 but the mechanic has to rip out the whole damn dashboard to get to it.

My mechanic just called me back a few moments ago and advised me the freon levels were just fine and that he is sure its this evaporator part. He said it should take him about 3 hours to pull apart the dash and replace it...at 65.00 an hour, so all in all I'm looking at something like 250.00 walking out the door. Which isn't bad, considering some sites on google had people reporting they paid about 600-800 to repair it (probably so if you were to take it to the dealership, a bunch of overpriced rip offs).

Nevertheless, problem should be fixed tomorrow.
