    On May 29, 2018, my 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid (purchased August, 2010), sustained an AdvanceTrac warning, as well as an ABS warning and a few additional related check engine warnings. My Ford dealer (Muzi Ford, Needham, MA) determined that both ABS modules needed to be replaced at a cost of $4500. The only symptom was the brake pedal traveling pretty far to the floor, but still providing enough brake power to stop the car. Ford Customer Service told me there were not TSBs or recalls for this problem. The car had only 57,500 miles but it didn't make sense to pour that much money into an 8-yr old car. (The car also had 2 cracked coils, a bad bushing and worn brake pads/rotors. Total cost to put the car back on the road would have exceeded $8000.) I sold the car for $1200 and bought a new Toyota Camry. I truly enjoyed my Fusion, but I could not buy another Ford after this fiasco.
