MY ESCAPE HAS STALLED (3 TIMES) WHILE DRIVING DOWN A SLIGHT DOWNHILL GRADE IN THE ROAD GOING ABOUT 40 MPH. I HAVE TAKEN THE VEHICLE BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP TWICE. FIRST TIME THEY TOLD ME THAT THE IDLE CONTROL VALUE WAS CORRODED AND REPLACED IT. THE SECOND TIME THEY TOLD ME THEY COULD NOT FIND A PROBLEM. THIS IS A VERY FRIGHTENING EXPERIENCE TO HAVE YOUR CAR QUIT ON YOU IN THE MIDDLE OF TRAFFIC AND I FEEL VERY STRONGLY THAT IT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED SINCE IT IS HAPPENING TO OTHER PEOPLE. *JB

Summary of Complaint

SINCE THE FIRST WEEKS OF PURCHASE OF VEHICLE IT HAS HAD NUMEROUS SENSOR PROBLEMS, ALL OF WHICH THE NATIONAL CITY FORD HAS ADDRESSED. THEY HAVE CHANGED MULTIPLE PARTS IN THE VEHICLE, INCLUDING A FAILED SYSTEM. THE ORIGINAL PURCHASE WAS MADE FROM BOB BAKER FORD IN MISSION VALLEY, (SAN DIEGO) BUT THE VEHICLE IT'S SELF HAS BEEN SERVICED AT THE NATIONAL CITY DEALER. SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE VEHICLE PROBLEMS WE HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH THE MANUFACTURER, ADVISING THEM OF ALL THE DIFFERENT DEFECTS WE HAVE. THE DEFECT THAT MOST WORRIES US IS THE ENGINE FAILURE, THE ENGINE TENDS TO LOSE ALL POWER WITHOUT NOTICE AND SHUTS OFF LOOSING POWER STEERING AND BRAKING ABILITY. THIS HAS HAPPEND TO US AT NIGHT, AND NOT EVEN THE DASH BOARD LIGHTS FLICKER, OR THE HEAD LIGHTS. WE HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE, THEY HAVE INSTALLED EQUIPMENT TO TRY AND FIGURE THE PROBLEM WITH NO SUCCESS. THEY SAY WE CAN HOPE IT DOES NOT HAPPEN AGAIN. FORTUNATLY IT HAS NOT HAPPENED ON THE FREEWAY, AS THOSE FORD FOCUS PROBLEMS. THE LATEST PROBLEM WITH THE VEHICLE HAS BEEN TRANSMISSION RELATED, IT IS AS OF 10/29/02 BEING LOOKED AT THE FULLER FORD DEALERSHIP FOR THIS PROBLEM. WE HAVE ALSO ASKED THAT THEY LOOK AT THE ENGINE PROBLEM, AND THEY WILL ADVISE. DT

Summary of Complaint

F-150 BARELY STOPS FROM HITTING A CRV IN FRONT OF IT. AS SOON AS I SAW HIM APPLY HIS BRAKES I SLAMMED ON MINE. THE BRAKES DID NOT SEEM TO HELP TO SLOW ESCAPE'S SPEED. WENT UNDER F150'S BUMPER AND WAS BOUNCED BACK AT LEAST A CAR LENGTH AND A HALF (HAVE PICTURES). THE FRONT WAS CRUPPLED AND AIRBAGS DID NOT DEPLOY. I WAS TOLD BY FORD THEY FOUND NOTHING WRONG WITH BREAKING SYSTEM BUT I KNOW WHAT IT FELT LIKE. MAYBE SYSTEMS WERE WORKING ACCORDING TO THEIR COMPUTER BUT I KNOW IF I HAD BEEN IN MY 1996 EXPLORER IT WOULD HAVE STOPPED.*AK
