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 vehicle came with the standard cloth floor mats, but my dealer "threw in" the factory rubber ones from another Fusion free of charge. I've had my vehicle a little over a year now and twice I have had a sticking accelerator pedal. The floor mat creeps forward and will sometimes catch the accelerator pedal just right and keep the pedal at whatever throttle setting it was last at. This has never caused any real problems for me, but I feel that it is important that Ford mo co be made aware of this and either encourage dealers to not exchange the floor mats, or to install some sort of holding mechanism to keep the rubber mats from interfering with the accelerator pedal.

2010 Ford Fusion hybrid. Floor mat as installed at dealer jammed against accelerator. Driver was able to stop the vehicle and correct the problem by unstacking deep weather floor mats from regular floor mat.

At times I am unable to read any information in the instrument cluster area. Instruments are covered by a dark plastic and when the sun shines in the area of the instruments, you can not see them. My concern is the speed I am traveling.
