Electronic throttle body. Car would go into limited power mode and then would cut off randomly and without warning.

Gurgling in gas tank area after gas fill up can be heard in passenger compartment until tank gas level goes down between 3/4 and full. Only occurs when gas tank is full or very near full.

Battery was initially not taking a charge, they said it was a defective module and replaced both the module and the rear back up camera which they said was draining the battery. In this case they had the car for 2 1/2 weeks before returning it to me.. about 4 days after I got it back the car started shuddering during a reverese position in a parking lot and died.. it started right up again.. the next day it lost all acceleration at a lower speed in stop and go traffic, once again it died but started right up again. It did this two more times once on the freeway the other time down the street from my home. Ford has had the car for 5 days (since 2/19/2016) now and says there is no codes or have been able to duplicate the problem..

Wether the car is cold or warm, everytime I drive, I get a hardshift between 2nd and 3rd gear. Also when I make a stop and try to accelerate, the car jerks from on the 1st gear. When I'm going on a downhill and let go of the gas pedal and slowly start braking, the would go from 2,000 RPM to 5,000 RPM while I have my foot on the brake. When I go to any gas station I can't leave the pump on auto because it would stop pumping, so I have to do it manually, in order to get a full tank.

The window sticker claiming epa/dot fuel economy and environment is deceptive. The window sticker claims 22 city and 31 highway per gallon for the Ford Fusion 2014. My car has 17000 miles and I would like to report that I'm not getting as claimed. I'm getting only 16 in city and 26 in highway driving. This false claim by Ford should be investigated.

When driving at slow speeds, making parking manuevers, or just stting still there are noises coming from the gas tank area of my vehicle. They sound like rattling, gurgling, vibrating, or percolating sounds. I have taken my vehicle to two different Ford dealers in my area and neither one can/will tell me what these noises are, all they say is that it could be a few different things and that it is a normal operating feature of this model vehicle. Frankly I dont believe that as I have never heard this noise from any other car I have owned. Furthermore if the dealers themselves cant tell me why my car is making this noise than how can they say its normal.

After fill up slow in parking lot hear what sounds like a bad wheel bearing from R rear. Checked out other complaints found Ford will replace some more expensive model fuel tanks not mine.was told to live with it. There is a service bulletin from Ford same year as mine. I have a base model so I don't qualify. It's true it's a brand new car! $23,000 it cost me.

First I would like to state that this vehicle has a 6 speed manual transmission. I have had acceleration/ deceleration issues since I took delivery of the vehicle in January 2014, the issues are intermittent and happen at various RPM and various speeds. Ive had the vehicle at the dealership 3 times for the same issue they have told me 3 times that there is nothing wrong with the vehicle. The problems are as follows....when shifting gears the accelerator will occasionally stick and hold that higher RPM for 5 or 6 seconds before decelerating, this happens approx. 50% of the time while shifting. The dealer tells me that this is supposed to happen this way. My response is... if it is supposed to perform this way then why doesn't it perform this way all the time rather than 50% of the time? the second acceleration/ deceleration issue is....the car will randomly accelerate to 5500- 6000 RPM, this has happened while driving 40 mph in 6th gear it has also happened while shifting between gears. When this happens it will maintain that high RPM for 5 or 6 seconds then decelerate. On one occasion I was driving in traffic at approx. 15 mph my car accelerated and this almost caused an accident, fortunately I was able to quickly depress the clutch and brake to avoid a collision. The issues listed above have happened multiple times and are random.

Bought a new 2014 Ford Fusion SE ego boost in July of 2014. When fuel tank is full, there is a loud and distinct rattling noise originating from the back of the car which appears to be coming from the fuel tank. Initial inspection by Ford failed to determine the nature of the problem as they were not able to replicate the noise. Driving the car for several weeks led me to determine that the noise was present only when the fuel tank was full. I brought the car back to Ford twice, both times with a full tank of gas. The service manager told me the noise is "normal" but there is nothing normal about it. I've escalated my concerns to Ford's corporate office and the woman I spoke to told me that the noise is inherent in the design and not a safety problem, I told her that anytime a fuel tank is vibrating and hitting either the exhaust or the under body of the car it is a safety concern. She told me that her tech have informed her that the noise is coming from bad baffles in the tank, I told her that who ever said that thinks that I am stupid and that I can't tell the difference between a rattle and a baffle problem. She repeated it not a safety concern. I told her that it may not seem that way now, but years down the road when the fuel starts to leak from years of rubbing it will be because at that time a fire or explosion will happen. At this point Ford refuses to do anything to fix this issue.
