The Ford Fusion is agile and satisfying to drive, with a sporty feel. Its V6 engine and automatic transmission make for a smooth and responsive powertrain, the four-cylinder option is a bit coarse however. Additionally, Fusion's interior is well made and space is generous.

If the valves do not properly close, additional brake pedal travel may be required to stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Summary:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2006-2010 Ford Fusion, Mercury Milan, Lincoln Zephyr and MKZ vehicles. The valves within the ABS Hydraulic Control Units (HCU) may react with brake fluids containing specific corrosion preventative additives. This reaction may cause the valves to not close properly.
What should you do:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will flush the brake system with DOT 4 fluid and install a new brake fluid reservoir cap. In addition, the HCU will be tested to detect a possible stuck valve condition, replacing the HCU as necessary. All services will be performed free of charge. Owners were notified of the safety risk with an interim letter on January 22, 2020. A second notice will be sent once parts are available, expected to be in the first quarter of 2021. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 19S54.
For more information:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
