We're getting off track. He said he has an SEL, not a hybrid.

xmech...The brakes are totally normal except the one time I had to slam them on and it was kinda like when you slammed on you brakes of your ten speed and you would slowly come to a stop....no lock-up, no pulsing from the anti-lock brake system.

Sorry, smarty. I figured this topic was about his SEL brake problems, and I'm sure there's more than one thread about the FFH regenerative brake issue, which as I understand has little or nothing to do with standard brakes, so will be of no help solving his problem, or may even confuse matters, but that's me. Sorry for trying to help.
And Koho, sounds like your brakes worked as advertised.

hey I'm just looking at out for the consumer and making sure anyone with a hybrid knows about the recall because no matter what car you have recalls stink and any opportunity to get the car manufacture to fix something for free is worth it; they screw us over enough so paybacks a pain!

Well, I stopped and looked the the threads listed under "Ford Fusion/Mercury Milan", and there isn't one there about the Hybrid brake issue, so you have a good point on that issue. I frequent several Fusion forums, and I'm so used to seeing them, I assumed there would be one here, too. I'm real suprised it isn't. Maybe it's a good idea for you to post your link in an appropriately titled new thread just for the Hybrids? It might alert more people with hybrids and I'm sure they will appreciate it!

Let me know what the dealer says. My Fusion SEL has 3300 miles on it and the brakes seem fine even when my wife had to slam them on to miss a deer. She said it stopped fast and straight.

I had this problem today. 2010 Fusion SEL AWD 6500 miles on it.
I could NOT stop from about 3 MPH on a hill coming out of the gas station. After that I took the car to about 25 MPH and slammed on the brakes (to the floor) with horrible stopping distance and absolutely no tire sequel or ABS pulsating.
Stopping distance is about double our 2007 Fusion SEL FWD with 24000 miles... any solutions to this problem yet?? I'm VERY concerned about this seeing as how I'm a paramedic and the Fusion is my emergency vehicle...

Jrsykid, any more details? Rain, snow, dry? Doind this all the time? Just this one occcassion? What does your cities' vehicle maintenance dept. say about it? I assume you had to have it towed back?
And just in case we never hear from jrsykid686 again, plz note his story seems to follow a trend I've seen lately on the Fusion Forums I follw: Amazing story, really dangerous-bad problem with Fusion yet not quite enough details to determine what really happened, extra bit to the story to make it a bigger deal. For example, in another Fusion forum, a poster in a thread about Forum traction in snow, said basically 'I was going up this snowy hill, and suddenly smoke came from the right wheel well then from under the hood, so I pulled over and the car went up in flames, lost my car, all my stuff, and my 3 year old's car seat, lucky my 3 year old wasn't in it....'. Also, this poster had 1 post in the forum... Never heard back.
Hope this isn't the case again here, but... just saying. Mods, I guess if you have to delete my observation, do what you must. I just have to call it like I see it. I'll be suprised if we ever hear from jrsykid686 again, or if the what he adds to this makes any sense, etc.
