Ford Fusion Recalls
If the vehicle is involved in an accident, heat from the deployment of a seat belt pre-tensioner may cause a front seat belt anchor cable to fail. If this happens, the seat belts may not properly restrain the front seat occupants. This would lead to increased risk of injury.
The left rear seat back has pivot pins that allow the seat to be folded down. These pins may not have been welded properly, which could allow the seat back to separate in an accident. This could allow stored luggage and cargo to enter the passenger compartment and possibly injure passengers.
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
The driver's side seat may separate from the body of the vehicle in an accident, due to an improperly welded seat track component. This could result in increased risk of occupant injury.
The fuel tank could crack and leak fuel due to a malfunction in the system that controls fuel emissions. This can cause a fire hazard.
The fuel tank may have been manufactured without sufficient thickness in the tank walls. This could result in the tank fracturing and leaking fuel in an accident, causing a fire hazard.
The electric power steering assist may shut down, causing difficulty steering and controlling the vehicle.
The steering gear motor mounting bolts may corrode and fail, causing power steering assist on the vehicle to be lost. This would cause extra effort steering the vehicle, and could result in loss of vehicle control.
The doors may be difficult to latch, and the latches may not fully secure the doors in the closed position. This could allow a door to open while the vehicle is in motion.
The vehicle may roll unexpectedly while parked because in some cases the ignition key can be removed when the transmission is not in Park.
