Hi Im David, call your dealer about this

DEARBORN, Michigan — Ford is recalling 23 2013 Ford Fusions for a steering gear problem that could result in impaired steering or loss of steering control, according to the automaker.

"(The) steering gears may have been built without an internal retaining clip, which could result in impaired steering, including the loss of steering control, potentially increasing the risk of a crash," wrote Kelli Felker, a Ford spokeswoman, in response to an Edmunds query.

the recall center should be able to set you up to have you take the vehicle in and in turn get a loaner vehicle while yours is getting fixed.
