    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.

    While driving at about 20 mph, I stepped on the brakes and it did not stop. The ABS took over and I stopped about 15 feet later. After the brakes went spongy and I drove it home slowly giving myself plenty of room. I will take it to the shop for diagnosis. Master Cylinder? ABS?

    Clicking noise driving forward and in reverse turned out to be worn anti-rattle clips for front brakes.

    I bought a use 2012 for fusion from a dealership in February of 2014 it had 10800 miles on it when I bought it. At about 24000 miles I noticed grinding coming from brakes and took it yo dealership I bought it at. Was told pads were gone and rotors needed replaced. I asked how the pads were when I bought it he said they had 90% life left when they checked at 10700 miles. So I asked how it goes from 90% to practically nothing in 13000 miles. Doesn't make any since to me had to pay them to fix I received a 100$ discount but still out the $250 it cost me

    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!
