    Same problem, awful grinding sound in 2012 to. I refuse to pay for replacement as I believe it is a factory defect

    Let's see, had to replace rear brakes and rotors at 27000 miles, have had to replace all 4 tires, 11000 miles after brakes and rotors were replaced I hear a grinding noise so I take the car back in-have to replace both yet again (which they were still under warranty where I had had them replaced, so it was free thank god), but then they tell me that the rear driver's side calipers had seized up-so goodbye to 400.00. Plus calipers would have been covered if I had been under 36,000 miles, but I'm at 38,000. I will NEVER buy Ford again.

    Same problem i have a 07 last 3 years ive been thru r brake changes, roters changed twice an a wheel bearing also rear calipers. Ive been to several mechanics and the only explanation i get is it must be a deaign defect. There is no other explanation. I only have 70,000 miles on my 7 year old vehicle...this car is costly to keep. Constantly having brake issues. I will think twice next purhase.

    Absolute garbage vehicle. Both rear calipers gone at 60000 miles. Do yourself a favor and trade it in while you still have your shirt

    At 50,000 miles I had to have the pads (still with 20% on them) and rotors replaced. I never had rotors ever replaced on a car and I put 200,000 miles on a Camry and sold it! The brake pads were faulty had to have them replaced a second time. Then 5,000 miles later my brake pedal is back to the floor. I have to replace the master celinder and rear caliper. I am definitely going back to a Camry!

    I have a 2013 Fusion Titanium. The car is only 18 mos old. Kept hearing grinding noise upon applying the brakes. Take it to dealership where I've consistently taken it for PM service. They state the inside rear left rotor is rusted pitted and warped. The resurfaced all 4 rotors and put new pads on the back at no charge. I argued for new rotors but they refused.

    Have 2010 Fusion SEL with small V6. First noticed once per rev scraping noise from rear wheel at slow speed. Then noticed a metal to metal scrapping noise when brakes are applied. Checked on-line and found many 2010 Fusions with similar premature rear brake problems. Called dealer service. They said they were unaware of these issues. They told me, although the car had only 19,000 miles, it exceeded the 36,000 mi & 3 year warranty because I bought the car 3.5 years ago. Too bad for me.

    So I brought it to Firestone. Mechanic couldn't believe what he saw at 19K miles. Pads gone and rotors destroyed. Rear pads and rotors cost me $300.
