As of March 2015, there are no NHTSA-issued safety recalls for the 2012 Ford Fusion, reports U.S. News & World Report. The Ford Fusion has recalls for model years ranging from 2006 to 2011 and 2013 to 2015. The 2012 Fusion is ranked number eight among 2012 affordable mid-sized cars.
The 2014 and 2015 Ford Fusion sedans have a recall for an instrument cluster programming issue. This problem makes the Fusion sedan a roll-away risk and vulnerable to theft. Some 2014 Ford Fusion models also have recalls for possible airbag problems. A faulty restraint control module prevents airbags and seat belt pre-tensioners from functioning properly during a collision.
The 2013 Ford Fusions have recalls for steering gear problems caused by a missing internal retaining clip. Lack of this retaining clip increases the risk of steering loss. Some 2013 and 2014 Fusion models also have recalls for improperly designed seat frames that do not comply with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration standards. Sub-standard frame welds increase the risk of injury during a crash.
Ford Fusion models ranging from 2006 to 2011 have recalls for the factory-installed driver's side all-weather floor mats. If improperly installed, these floor mats interfere with the car's accelerator pedal. All Ford Fusion recalls are covered by Ford free of charge. A recall is initiated by contacting Ford Customer Care at the official toll-free number.
