I bought a used 2014 Ford Fusion in the summer with no driving problems, but when I was driving the car in the winter the front end of the car shook really bad at speeds over 35 to 45 miles mpr took the car to Ford dealer, they said this is a problem that Ford knows about with the 19"wheel but they do not tell the custermers about it when selling the when winters comes around again I have to buy a different set of wheels to be able to drive the car safely this up coming winter. This happens when driving on the city street and get really bad on the highway.

Factory oem Goodyear Eagle ls-2S claim to be all season. From the first test drive these tires failed to have anything close to reasonable traction on snow and ice, resulting in the sales-rep being barely able to back the car out of the lot for a test-drive. Needless to say I wasn't thrilled about them. After getting the car onto the road, it seemed to do better, so I went ahead and purchased the vehicle. After owning it for less than 48 hours, had several incidents with stopping, cornering and acceleration where the traction control, anti-lock breaks all functioning normally, just the tires not having any sort of reasonable grip or traction. In one instance, I slid through an intersection when trying to stop at 5mph. In another instance it took me most of a minute to go through a single-lane intersection because the front tires were turning so slowly because the traction control was stuttering the wheel turn as the tires kept losing grip/traction. Repeated complaints through the sales and service department, even with the sales people admitting the tires were bad for winter and the service manager flat out saying, and I quote, "those ls2S are sh*t for winter", nothing was done to replace them with a comparable tire that was a true all-season tire. Complaining to the factory only nets me repeated instructions to pay Ford to do a diagnostic on the car, refusing to even Focus on the tire problem. These tires from Goodyear should never have been allowed to be marked as all-season. At best they are fair-weather spring/summer/fall tires, at worst, they are dry area summer only tires. Like others, I've had issues with traction on just wet roads, let alone snowy or icy.

From 3/15 T0 11/15 3 of my 4 original tires(side walls)which are Michelin green radial X, size 235/50 R17 96H ruptured while driving.the range of miles when this happened was from about 14000 to about 23000 far below any life expectancy.tthe first 2 tire failures occurred slowly so I was able to have them mixed by fullerton Ford dealership in somerville N.J.the last episode was more scary.I was driving on route 18 in old bridge, N.J. when the left rear tire catastrophically breached, and I had to pull of the road to avoid any accident.fortunnately it was 10am and the traffic was very light, otherwise the result may have been more serious.a quick search of the internet reviled similar accidents, but there has not been any recall.I firmly believe that an investigation on these and other tires with reduced side walls should be critically looked at, before it becomes endemic.I look forward to your analysis.

We just purchased the car yesterday and so far we are having 2 issues. The first is the shifting of the gears when driving between first and second which can be rough. It feels like downshifting more than speed pick up. Also we were driving on the highway and our rear passenger tire blew out just like that and we nearly lost control of the vehicle. Very scary. Took the vehicle back to Ford to look into.

Driving down the road around 35-40 mph coming up to a light, the vehicle started to accelerate by itself, had to hit the brakes, thankfully it stopped. My wife was driving and was not using cruise control. The weather outside was cold. This is the first time this has happened. I hope it is the last. This is a Ford Fusion hybrid with the 2.0 L engine. Being a hybrid there is no spare tire. They have run flat tires. If you get a flat tire late at night and cell phone service is bad you are in trouble. I hope this never happens to someone.

Was driving car in the parking lot leaving work and was unable to turn the steering wheel. Steering wheel had locked up on it, I struggled to turn the wheel and it wouldn't turn. Ended up crashing into a concrete light pole. Was only going about 15 mph and no airbags deployed. Hit my head on the steering wheel and knee into the dash. Had to go to the hospital by ambulance. Also, the week prior, my low tire indicator light kept coming on and every time I would check the tire pressure it was fine.
