Car does not upshift after 2nd gear. Sometimes will fall out of 2nd gear as if in neutral. When shifting into reverse, the car jolts. This is not a mechanical issue (gears/clutch plates/etc.) Strongly believe it is an electrical problem (sensors) and/or valve body. Repairs I hear are several thousand dollars on up to 9 thousand. You people are ignorant, stupid, insane, or liars! Grow up America. Labor...10 hours @ 60/hr. Rebuilt transaxle...1000. under 2000 fixes any transmission problem, even if it fell out of car and you lost it. STOP RIPPING PEOPLE OFF! STOP GETTING RIPPED OFF!

The transmission needs to be replaced on a 2010 Ford Fusion after 60,000 miles. The transmission struggles to upshift until third gear and then kicks in. The transmission slips randomly while shifting during drive. The transmission slips occasionally when downshifting to a complete stop.

Bought used. Smelling hot oil. Drips in driveway. Part fell off. Took it to reputable local shop and they said PTU is burnt up. Dealer we bought it from had it before for the oil drip and DID NOT find the problem. Or did not want to find the problem. Over 60 days now so we are screwed. $1000+ to repair.

2009 Ford Fusion - Automatic Transmission 93,000 mi,
2009 model....Slipping in 5th gear. 6 years old and the dealer just quoted $6400 to replace transmission. Catastrophic failure. The fix cost is more than the car is worth.
2012 Ford Fusion 108,000 mi,
First problem was transfer case cracked. Also noticed transmission jerking and shifting hard between lower gears. (Car is automatic) Ford dealership wouldn't acknowledge the problem or offer a solution. Fusion had been taken back to dealership multiple times since purchase to have transmission evaluated for shifting hard. Assured me that the transmission was functioning properly. It most definitely isn't. Now, transmission is slipping horribly. Calling my mechanic tomorrow. Will never recommend a fusion. I've only owned Ford vehicles...thinking about switching to something else for next car purchase.

2006 Ford Fusion 74,000 mi,
At 74,000 miles had the automatic transmission replaced. Was shifting very hard between second & third. Sometimes, however, it seemed to hang up between first & second. Didn't seem to matter if it was city driving or getting on or off the highway. Fusion now has 145,000 miles on it, seems to still be okay but now I worry it'll go again.
