They had to break them off to put the new ones on because they were stripped and no wrench could fit them. $250 later-because they could only find lug nuts directly from ford that woul...

2010 Ford Fusion Recalls

Fuel Tank Cracks And Leaks Fuel

The fuel vapor canister purge valve may not operate properly and cause the fuel tank to crack and leak fuel. Dealers will perform a leak test on the canister purge valve and inspect fuel tanks for cracks, replacing parts as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Accessory Floor Mats Move And Interfere With Accelerator Pedal

Ford accessory floor mats may interfere with accelerator pedal operation. Dealers will install replacement mats, free of charge to resolve the concern.

One or More Wheel Studs May Break

On vehicles equipped with 17-inch steel wheels, one or more wheel studs may break. If this were to occur, a vibration could develop and the wheel could separate from the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. To correct this concern, dealers will inspect the rear brake discs and replace them as necessary. Additionally, the wheel lug nuts will be replaced on all four wheels. The Ford recall number is 11S23.

I adore my 2010 Fusion. Bought her used and she is amazing.
Computer chip controlling throttle went nuts 2 weeks after buying it 4/2013. It took a month of fighting with CarMax Ford and two Ford repair shops to get it fixed. Seems there was a recall in 2013, but prior owner did nothing about it. Check with Ford directly to see if your model has had a recall.The 4cyl. has had the most problems.
