My 2014 Ford Fusion lunges forward upon slowing down or braking. This has happened twice to me, the first time resulting in an accident. Ford dealership had to car for a week and said there was absolutely nothing wrong with it. It is now repaired and I am leery of driving it. It only has 2100 miles on it.

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Pat, Have you tried driving your Fusion since it was at the dealers? I recommend you take it to an empty parking lot and drive it around. If it is still jerky with slowing down and braking, take it back to the dealer and ask them to have a technician go on a road test with you so you can point out what is happening.

Gail Dunn, Owner at Women's Automotive Connection Pat You say the car is now repaired. The dealer should've been able to tell you what the problem was. From the mileage, it appears to still be under warranty. Drive it, and if the problem starts again, take it back to the dealer. Also check lemon law in your state. Recurring problems can ce under them at some point.
