2014 Ford Fusion ProblemsHarsh or Delayed Shifting of Automatic Transmission
The automatic transmission may develop shifting concerns. On lower mileage vehicles, upgrading the software in the powertrain control module (PCM) and the transmission control module (TCM) may correct the problem. As the mileage increases, internal transmission damage can occur. Repairs could involve replacement of the valve body or a complete transmission rebuild. Whenever major transmission repairs are made, it is important to be sure the PCM and the TCM have the latest software updates to help prevent these issues from reoccurring.
Squeaks and creaks heard while driving over bumps and turning can be caused be a couple common sources and should be carefully diagnosed. Possible weld issues on the lower control arms can cause the noise concerns and require repair kits for the lower control arms from Ford. A jounce bumper (bump stop) rubbing against dry strut plate can cause an abrasion noise from the strut area. In this case the strut assembly should be disassembled to lubricate the jounce bumper and then reinstalled.
If the transmission oil leaks out of left side half shaft area, it may be from a worn axle shaft seal. The seal can be damaged by a poor surface finish on the axle shaft. The axle shaft and seal should be replaced to correct the problem.

2014 Ford Fusion RecallsPower Steering Assist Loss
For vehicles located in cold weather states where road salt and other contaminants may be present on the road, the mounting bolts for the power steering gear motor may corrode and break. As a result the steering gear motor could detach from the steering gear. This would result in a loss of power steering assistance, and make turning the steering wheel more difficult than usual. Dealers will inspect the steering gear motor and replace the steering gear assembly on vehicles where broken or missing attachment bolts are found. If the bolts are intact, dealers will apply sealer to prevent corrosion, and will replace affected bolts as necessary. All repairs will be performed free of charge to resolve the concern.
A component within a door latch can break making the doors difficult to latch when closed. This could cause the driver and/or passenger to believe their door is secure when it is not. A door that is not latched properly could open unexpectedly while driving, increasing the risk of personal injury and property damage. Dealers will replace all four door latches free of charge to correct this concern.
All modern vehicles with an automatic transmission have an interlock system where the ignition key cannot be removed unless the transmission is in Park. These vehicles are being recalled because this interlock system can fail. If the key is removed when the transmission is not in Park, the vehicle could roll unexpectedly resulting in personal injury or property damage. Dealers will repair these vehicles as necessary to correct this concern.
