The pedal is connected to the hydraulic brakes directly if the pedal is fully depressed. You always have mechanical brakes, even on the hybrid.

never took the fusion in... we had 10 inches of snow yesterday and i needed the AWD to get to where i was goin...
wouldnt ya know... after the snow the brakes are working perfect. Maybe they did need a really good cleaning?? The snow was past my bumpers at times so the brakes got quite a bit of snow in them to clean them... I'll keep an eye on it.
I must say that the AWD is amazing! i did get "stuck" once because the driver (me) backed over the snow bank about 2 feet tall... oops. I just rocked it and all 4 wheels pulled me right off the mound... amazing! Ok im done bragging now...

I am glad you still like your Fusion after the trouble you have had. Yours seems to have more trouble than most. If you do get a chance to see if there is a TSB for the transmission flash I love to know what it is. Thanks again

Hey I have a 2010 ford fusion se with the v6 and 9000 miles. I am having the same problem with my brakes feeling like they have 50% power most of the time and then other times they work perfect.
Had it at the dealer and when I dropped it off I rode with a service tech to make sure he experienced the same thing I was and he agreed there was something wrong. Once they looked it over they couldnt really figure it out and made it where now it only loses braking power sometimes.
It is still acting up and looking to take it back to the dealer.
Did you ever get yours fixed so you had no braking problems and what was the fix?

I haven't had problems stopping my 2010 Sport, but did have a hanging left rear caliper. I replaced the pads with EBC pads, and this sucker STOPS!
Only drawback of these pads is the brake dust gets all over the wheels, but I would much rather have dirty wheels and excellent brakes than clean wheels and mediocre brakes.
I do however have similar braking problems in my Flex EB. Sometimes you step on the brake while going slow and it doesn't feel like it will stop. The pedal will also travel to the floor if you press hard enough.
