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.

problem #2

Fusion 4-cyl

  • 6,700 miles
While driving with my family (3 yr old, 6 month old and my husband) throttle sudden stopped functioning. We were driving on the freeway when this happened the first time and was very scary and dangerous to suddenly lose speed. When we pulled over and restarted the car the throttle response seemed back to normal. We have had this happen multiple times a day ( as this is my families only car) I am now scared to drive with my girls in the car.
