I have ford fusion 2016 with 50.000 mile one owner

Customer Question
I have ford fusion...

I have ford fusion 2016 with 50.000 mile one owner maintained well . how common is the transmission shifter cable to brake and have to be replaced . Does this happen very often?

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the vehicle have a fuse that enables or disables the shifter?

Don't know the service tech said the cable broke and it would cost 790.00 to replace.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Fusion yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, its at the dealer . it seams like this could be factory defect.

Just for clarification you were told you need a shifter cable, not the shifter assembly itself. Is this correct?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
