Notes: The 2013 Fusion doesn’t have the same track record of power steering failure as the previous 3 model years. Of course, those owners said their steering failed at 60k–100k miles. So this appears to be a classic "wait and see" scenario.

In the meantime, there’s plenty of interior accessory problems to complain about. By themselves, each is a barely a blip on the radar. But combined, they give you that feeling of what the hell have I gotten myself into?

The right passenger front door latch was replaced with the same defective latch part that has a recall, this door is intermittently sticking which is making me extremely nervous that it is going to fly open while traveling down the road with my toddler or someone else in the car, along with passengers on the road. I am in fear of being locked inside of the car as well, being that it doesn't have any key holes! the door has stuck approximately 5 times since the "repair" at fairwary Ford in burgaw, nc. Also when I place my car in reverse and press the gas pedal there is a delay sometimes before it starts to reverse, this can be fatal if someone is ever behind me!

My passenger front door wouldn't shut, in the rain, at the store, I had to leave it open and unlocked and have my husband physically had to hold the door shut. After slamming it probably over 100 times, we got it shut, we have the seat belt holding it shut. This is a huge concern for me, I have a 2 year old and 1 year old what if this happened to their door and no one could have held the door shut going down the road, or a gust of wind would have happened, etc. Wtf"??????"

My dash door indicator light came on and after checking the doors found the passenger rear door had opened and would not close. After trying several times to close the door no luck it would just swing back at me. I have emailed Ford to get info on this problem but no response back.

This is a complaint about your commercial. We try to teach or children to be tolerant of others and your commercial showing adults talking at the play ground shows just the opposite. The woman sitting with her son is definitely being made to feel like an outsider. I filled in the above blank with vehicle info only so it would be sent.

1. lane keeping departure system presents a danger to cyclists & pedestrians. Now that I am aware, I turn the system off; however, the steering wheel puts up a good fight when I tried to provide the cyclists room--an unnecessary issue that could of caused serious bodily harm or death. 2. the vehicle does not get the mpg as promised on the sticker: A great deal of unnecessary money was lost. 3. the electrical A/C unit no longer generates cold air, but the fan still runs.
