Is it a harsh or shift delay of the transmission? There is a documented issue with the automatic transmissions for your year model Fusion. It will require a trip to the dealership to have a software upgrade to the cars computer so it will shift better. HTH's.

What is the cost to have the software upgrade, as we are past the 36000 warranty, or would it be covered under the 5 yr/60000 warranty?

Check with the dealer, I would think it would be free since it's covered under a TSB or technical Service Bulletin.

Thank-you for your expert advise...the car dealer is upgrading the software at no charge. We forgot to ask if is O.K to continue to drive until we get it in next week....what do you suggest.
