ANNOUNCEMENT: The Car Book 2018 is now online!

Ratings on over 1,000 new & used models going back 5 years, from the Center from Auto Safety. Learn more about The Car Book 2018 here. Notes: Power steering problems started rearing their ugly head in the 2010 Fusion, so you'd think Ford had plenty of time to make sure those problems didn't creep into the 2012. But here we are.

The Electronic Power Assist Steering (EPAS) is a mess. It fails at an alarming rate. Don’t believe us? Take a look at NHTSA’s data on the subject.

And much like the power steering, we’re still seeing the same throttle body failures that started in 2010 continue in 2012.

2012 Ford Fusion Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 122017

Fusion 2.5L

  • Manual transmission

I purchased this vehicle in September of 2013, then the car was a year old, barely 4 years into having the car and still making payments, the clutch has gone up. Mind you I do not drive everyday but since the New Year I have been. I was told by one mechanic that this seems a little premature for the clutch to be going out already. I know that it is wear and tear but come on the car is barely 4 years old and a major problem like this. I was willing to give Ford a try when I purchased this car but now it is like I am putting more money into it than is worth it.

Update from Jan 23, 2017: I really feel as though I may have been taken advantage of with this vehicle and everything that may have been wrong with it was not told to me.
