#111 of 143 Ford Fusion 2010 A piece of crap
Dec 23, 2011 (1:23 pm)
I bought this Ford Fusion 6 cyl SEL because Car and driver, Consumer Reports etc all chimed in about what a great car it is. Well before 30k miles I replaced the synch module twice and all the directional lights twice. At 40k miles the alternator went for $960 and last week the water pump was leaking. Fortunately it was covered under the drive train warranty because they had to take the car apart. The dealer has my car for lasts weekend and 6 more business days and they will keep it till Monday. so 11 days overall at a minimum. The maintenance manual says it should be 16 hours labor. The car has 52k miles on it and I have lost faith in the vehicle. My F 250, 4 wheel drive crapped out at 40k miles. I am done with American cars. Ford can my kiss back side. And whom ever said the Fusion is the car of the year is full of crap and should not be trusted again

Yet hundreds of thousands of other owners don't have any of these problems.

Really I know a dozen people with Ford vehicles. One guy has an explorer with 3 transmission changes all under 50K miles. My best friends wife liked my Fusion so much they bought one and just lost the transmission at 24k miles. My wife had an explorer a few years back and it front axle problems below 40k miles. Yet her Honda has 130k miles with oil and transmission fluid changes being the biggest repair so far. Ford is an embarrassment. I will trade this car in as soon as I can and will probably never buy another Ford

A loaner for you. That's nice of dealer to do.
But, I feel that some times when his (dealer) 'technicians' touch my vehicle they can screw up something else. At least that's the way it worked at Toyota...and others.
So while you are out there enjoying the 'free' loaner there is some monkey in the garage working on your own...and making it worse. It's not just Ford, it happens with all of them

I understand the dealer had my car torn apart and actually told me his guys had never done this particular job before and this was "A learning curve for them" I can't wait to see if blows up in the next couple of weeks. If I have another problem with it I will dump it

#119 of 143 2010 Fusion recall for 17" steelies stud failure
Feb 10, 2012 (2:50 pm)
About 6 weeks ago it was reported that 2010 and 2011 Fusions and Milans with 17" steel wheels were to be recalled because some of the lug studs were shearing off. Two cars lost wheels (at low speed) and something like 28 other cars has some sheared studs. The recall was supposed to occur on January 28th. I have not been notified. Does anyone have information on the state of this recall?

We were notified about a month ago & our '10 Fusion had it's studs replaced today. This recall also involves brake rotors. We had our original rotors replaced by our independent mechanic earlier because they were warped and our Ford dealer told us that Ford will reimburse us for our expense. That phone call is on my "to do" list.
