Ford Fusion Recalls
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.
One or more of the components of the airbag system may not function as expected in the event of a crash.
Accessory floor mats purchased from Ford dealers for use may move and interfere with proper accelerator pedal operation, possibly resulting in a sticking pedal. This may result in unintended vehicle acceleration.
