Fusion SE 2.4L

I can't open driver side door from inside. I have to roll over window and open door handle front outside. In emergency it's a disaster. This should be recalled ASAP.

Fusion SEL

  • Automatic transmission
  • 95,000 miles

Driver side door handle is not working properly. I have to pull the handle latch out half way and then pull on the lock latch and the door will open. Or I can roll down my window and open the door from the outside. From what I've read this is a very common problem with this car.

Fusion V6

  • Automatic transmission

Am planning to have it repaired this weekend. Definitely annoying to have to put down window & open door from outside! Should extend recall for door latches to include 2010 models. I did report this to Ford.

problem #1

Aug 022015

Fusion SE 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 72,000 miles

Driver door has to be opened by rolling window down and egress from using outside door handle. Does not automatically unlock when placing vehicle in park. Does not allow a safe egress from vehicle. Appears to be related to gear shift. Inside door handle useless, remains in locked position. All others door open and close ok.
