2012 Ford Fusion Questions and Answers


  • What Problems Does the Curt Triflex Brake Controller Have with 7-Ways With LED Test Lights
  • What happens is that the load that LED puts on the brake output circuit tricks the brake controller into thinking that there is a trailer connected and the brake controller will start activating regardless if there is a trailer connected or not. Technically it would work just fine with a trailer, its just that it will always activate regardless if there is a trailer back there or not. I attached installation instructions and an install video for you to check out also.

  • Can Timbren Axle-Less Suspension be Used on a Triple Axle Trailer
  • I spoke with the engineers over at Timbren. The reason that they do not recommend the axle-less suspension systems, such as # ASR5200S01, for triple axle applications is because there is no equalization between would would be the axles of the trailer. Without that a trailer that is not fully level would put to much stress and/or weight on the other sets. The engineer said that they have done it before and it can be done but unless the trailer is always fully level, when loaded or not, it is n

  • Can the Trunk be Opened with the Thule Raceway Trunk Mount Bike Rack Installed
  • Trunk mount bike racks should be removed when not in use. If you leave them on all the time they can leave marks on the vehicle in some cases. You will not want to open the trunk with the bike rack installed. Doing so could wedge the hooks against the body of the vehicle or trunk lid and damage them. The hinges or struts for the trunk are not designed for added weight and also because of the extra weight the trunk could fall on you if the rack was still attached. The Thule Raceway # TH900

  • Will the Thule Raceway Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2012 Ford Fusion with Spoiler
  • After looking at some pictures of the spoiler on the 2012 Ford Fusion, it appears that it is small and not very high off of the trunk lid. If you do have the factory spoiler then the Thule Raceway trunk mount bike rack, # TH9001, should fit over the spoiler just fine. I have linked a video showing the rack on a 2012 Ford Fusion. You can see that there is a lot of space between the rack and the trunk. Though this vehicle does not have a spoiler, there is enough space for the factory one. U

  • Class II Accessories Will Not Fit in a Class I Trailer Hitch on a 2012 Ford Fusion

We have an image on the product page for all Class I hitches that have the tab pointing it out. I have included here as well. Class I trailer hitches are al

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Ford Fusion with Sunroof and Thule SUP Paddle Board Carrier

In the video, the roof rack being used is a Thule rack comprised of the following parts: Thule AeroBlade Load Bars, # THARB53 Thule Rapid

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2012 Ford Fusion with Rear Spoiler
  • Generally speaking, if a vehicle has a rear spoiler, you will not be able to mount a trunk mounted bike rack. However, if no part of the bike rack touches the spoiler and the straps can pass underneath or over the spoiler without touching it, then you can use a trunk mount bike rack. If your Fusion has the factory spoiler, you will be able to use the Yakima KingJoe 3, # Y02620, pictured. I can verify that it will fit based on the pictures provided by Yakima.
