Brakes "automatically" apply with no warning or reason. Manufacturer issued "ssm 45775" but will not tell me when.

The contact owns a 2015 Ford Fusion. While driving down an incline at 55 mph, the brake pedal was depressed, but failed to respond without warning. Prior to the failure, an unknown sound emitted from the vehicle when the brake pedal was depressed. The contact's vehicle was stopped after it crashed into a guardrail. The air bags failed to deploy. A police report was filed. The contact sustained bruises to the head and whiplash. The driver sustained bruises to the left shoulder. Both occupants required medical attention. The vehicle was towed to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the booster brake system failed and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure.

03/2015 lost control of the breaks and had to use the parking breaks to attempt to stop me and U still hit another car. 07/09/2015 lost all control of breaks, instrument panel display turned white and the mft turned black, motor shut off. The dealer can't find the problem, they just do a computer reset and it temporarily fixes the problem but they reject me to put my child in this car!

Fusion 4-cyl

  • miles
Rented car from enterprise car rental (734)451-2499. Car lost power on two occasions while driving. First time around 9:00 am going East on 401 in Canada, second time around 8:00 pm going West on 402 in Canada. Lost power steering, engine power, power brakes and headlights. Was able to safely pull over and had to place car in park and restarted car with ignition key. Rental car company provides two car keys with a braided chain to keep the two keys together and to discourage customer from separating the keys (need wire cutters to separate). The Ford keys are very heavy and have integrated keyfob. To prevent the keys from hitting my knees, I used a tywrap to pull them closer together.
