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

    Spongy brakes, had brake pads and rotars and still does it. Pedal goes all way to floor and have to go very slow, Had on diagnostic and they could not find problem

    I bought my car in 2010 with 12,000 miles on it. I will do the front brakes this weekend, 10/04/2014 with 113,000 miles for the first time! The rear I will do maybe next month I'll see how they look tomorrow. Please note I drive 60 miles daily and let off the throttle and coast long before applying the brakes (lightly and evenly). I finally talked my wife into doing the same thing on our F-150, she's a left foot braker btw, and all of the sudden her miles between brake jobs soared as well, doubled easily. Driving style is everything. A lot of folks brake too hard and too often and then blame the auto manufacturer for defective vehicles and swear they'll never buy another one. Although there is issues from time to time it's usually the person behind the wheel. I used to own a 91 T-bird SC and went longer because it was a five speed.

    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.

    Rear passenger brakes ground down to nothing - all other pads have at least 50% left.

    Brakes are soft and it not safe to drive had the pads change no difference this car is turning into a money pit. For needs to recall this problem before people gets killed

    Driven in Iowa winters all of my life. This car is an accident waiting to happen! Twice it has snowed so far and just a trace. Both times the car wont steer without sliding and braking!!! Surprised I'm still alive! Front tires lock up and put you into slide while ABS going nuts. Feels like no rear brakes. Have come real close to sliding out into highway traffic doing 60 mph. Feel like this car is a death trap. Goes into shop 2 wks and will see if Ford fixes problem or I sell it first!

    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.

    My car is a 2006 and I have had to replace brakes on this car 4 times, rotors Twice now.
    My car only has 49000 on it because I work from home. This shouldn't be.
