2013 Ford FUSION Electronic Stability Control Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID1171414
 Internal NHTSA #10702775
 ManufacurerFord Motor Company
 Model Year2013
 File date31/03/15
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemStarted up the vehicle in the morning after sitting all night, buzzers, warning lights and messages popped up on the instrument cluster. "hill assist not available" "service advance trac" two light are also illuminated, traction control and stability control. The short 3 flash signals work but the sustained flash will not, the signal will flash once and shut off. The biggest safety concern is the power steering assist does not work. It will actually jerk the steering wheel in the opposite direction! Unfortunately i had to drive the vehicle 40 miles to work. It grinds and pops as the wheel is turned like it is trying to rip the tie rods loose. I am automotive savvy and felt i could handle driving it, however if my wife was to drive this vehicle i would fear there would've been an accident.
