CarComplaints.com 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.

heated seat not functional heated seat not functional

Purchased the car to learn the heated seat was not functional. Took it apart to repair and the fusion AND leather were burnt. This could of easily been a fire hazard as the seat was functional but would get really hot, so I’d have to turn it off. Had to replace the cushion and heated seat element. I didn’t bother replacing the leather. That was too much $$$
