Ford Fusion Problems
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.
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.
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.
Ford Fusion Questions
When I came to a stop, the engine started to make a rattling noise. Then, the engine light started to blink. I shut the engine off and did the diag from the dash board and the system tells me the oil is low. Perhaps, I need to add oil but could there be additional problems?
After a heavy rain my Low tire pressure message and indicator light went on. After putting the propper amount of air in it was still on. I was told it would auto reset. But it didn't.
I just bought a 2015 Ford Fusion,I recently got caught in a hard rain and the wipers did not seem to move fast enough to clear the windshield. I used the auto mode first and changed it to high. There was no difference in the speed.
Ford Fusion Recalls
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.
The Restraint Control Module (RCM) is the "brains" behind the airbag system. Portions of the module are coated to help prevent moisture intrusion. The coating can crack and when exposed to humidity the printed circuit board may short circuit. This could cause one or more of the airbag system components not to function as expected in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of personal injury. Replacement parts are currently not available, a second notification letter will be sent when they are and dealers will perform the necessary repairs.
The recliner mechanism for one or both front seats may have been improperly welded to the seat frame. As a result, the seatback may become loose or lean, increasing the risk of injury in the event of certain types of crashes. Dealers will replace the affected seatbacks to correct this concern.

2006 ford fusion piece of crap
We bought a 2007 Fusion in September 2007. We were just three payments shy of paying this off. We were on vacation when the car acting very strangely on the freeway. We pulled off and started driving slower. At that point we could make the car go faster than 40 mph. We were told by the Ford dealer in Shwanee Mission, Kansas that it would cost $7800 to replace the transmision. They say it ...
