My vehicle came with the standard cloth floor mats, but my dealer "threw in" the factory rubber ones from another Fusion free of charge. I've had my vehicle a little over a year now and twice I have had a sticking accelerator pedal. The floor mat creeps forward and will sometimes catch the accelerator pedal just right and keep the pedal at whatever throttle setting it was last at. This has never caused any real problems for me, but I feel that it is important that Ford mo co be made aware of this and either encourage dealers to not exchange the floor mats, or to install some sort of holding mechanism to keep the rubber mats from interfering with the accelerator pedal.

I have a 2010 Ford Fusion I bought it brand new in July 2010, already I have had to replace the radiator it was not covered under the manufac warranty. There is slots in the grill of the car pretty big they told me a rock must of went thru there when I was driving and made the hole in the radiator my insurance had to pay and I paid my 300 deductible. For a couple weeks prior to that I heard a gurgling sound under the dash board. Good thing I went to the dealer the day I did because the heat was blowing cold air. My radiator was bone dry and the noise under the dash was real loud at this point. Well anyway I went to pick the car up and they said it was fixed but I heard the gurgling sound still under the dash {near the glove comp} I don't know what they did{the guy tried to tell me it was normal at first until he heard the noise himself} well anyway he brought it back into the service dept quirk Chevrolet in quincy mass and they fixed the problem. But what I am getting at is I think there is a huge defect in the slats in the grill that it would allow anything in to hurt the radiator I have owned many cars in my life and this has never happened to me before. Also the door handle is falling off already on the drivers] inside] door.

At times I am unable to read any information in the instrument cluster area. Instruments are covered by a dark plastic and when the sun shines in the area of the instruments, you can not see them. My concern is the speed I am traveling.
