Notes: Ford significantly updated the Fusion for the 2010 model year. We wish they hadn't

Throttle body issues have led to a ton of reports about a sudden deceleration and loss of power while driving. Ford issued a “customer satisfaction program” in March 2014 that, unsurprisingly, has left very few customers satisfied.

2010 is also the year we started seeing complaints about the power steering failing. Throttle and steering failure? Yeah, that’s why this is a clunker.

My 2010 Ford Fusion has a power sunroof and one day, when I tried to close the sunroof, it would not close all the way. After inspection, I verified that a piece of plastic had broken off the sunroof rail that is critical to pushing down the automatic wind deflector. The wind deflector stays up and the sunroof runs into it directly, preventing it from closing properly. After detailed inspection, there are several cracks in the roof rail plastic and must be replaced entirely. This repair will cost more than $1,000 and I have not even reached 70,000 miles yet. I also hardly ever use the sunroof.
