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.

    I found a leak on the left side of the car when it was getting a regular oil change. Had the left side axle and seal into transmission replaced, about two weeks later I discovered another leak in the same place. I was told by the Ford Dealer that the warratty ran out after 60,000 miles. It shouldn't matter about the warranty when the problem is from the factory. Come on Ford get with the program.

    Seal, bushing and axle shaft were replaced on Left side at Ford garage under warranty. The same problem re-occured about a month later. Taking it in to get fixed again. Hope they fix it right this time. What a JOKE. Last Ford product I will buy.

    During Oil change informed of a leak and given the $500 bad news estimate. Looking for a mechanic to do the fix as I don't think Ford deserves the cash on this one.

    starting leaking transmission fluid from front left side. I had it towed to repair shop and the cost is 230.00 for parts, 60.00 for transmission fluid and 440.00 for the labor. Seems outrageous what they are charging for labor and this is at a Ford dealership.

    Have had our 2010 Ford Fusion less then a year and thankfully purchased an extended warranty. We noticed the transmission slipping really bad from 1st-2nd and it's more noticable when the car is cold. Just took it to the service center at the ford dealer and they replaced the drivers side axle seal. Got it home and a few hours later have noticed it's still leaking and a small puddle on the garage floor. Called the service center at the ford dealer and they are sending a tow truck down in the morning to get it and take another look at it and HOPEFULLY fix it! I would not recommend buying a Ford Fusion to ANYONE! They are known for this problem as well as the Ford Edge (in which we owned a 2007 edge that had the same problem) and the Escapes! I wish we had done our research before purchasing this car! BIG MISTAKE!!!

    Took my car in for a regular oil change and the mechanic discovered I had a leak in the axle shaft so now I am sitting with a loaner car waiting for a backordered part and no idea when I will get my car back.

    I have only owned this car for about 6,000 miles. Found a puddle in my driveway about 6 inches around and took it into the ford dealer and they wanted $110 just to diagnose the problem and they couldnt look at it for 2 weeks. I took it to a local transmission shop and had it fixed for $300 on the same day I took it in.

    Oil leaks found on garage floor. Put vehicle on ramps, removed belly pan cover and found a transmission oil leak on the left side of transmission. Haven't had it in for a repair yet.

    Transmission Fluid leaks seal at left CV joint. I took it to have it serviced due to slipping/ jerking when changing gears. Total of repairs cost me over $500.00, 4 days later, seal is broken again and needs to be replaced again. Ford needs to Recall this vehical...after seeing hundreds of exact same issue!
