Summary of Complaint

BRAKE SYSTEM'S HYDRAULIC CONTROL UNIT WAS RECALLED. BRAKE PEDAL GOES TO FLOOR OR TAKES EXCEPTIONALLY LONG TIME TO STOP. BARELY AVOIDED SEVERAL ACCIDENTS. THIS WAS RECALLED ALMOST 2 YEARS AGO AND NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE BY FORD! THE CAR MAINLY SITS IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE. I AM AFRAID TO USE IT.

Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRIVING ON A CITY BUSINESS ROAD OF 40 MPH MAX WHEN I WAS REQUIRED TO SLOW DOWN FOR A STOPLIGHT AHEAD. AS I SLOWED I NOTICED THAT THE BRAKE PEDAL CHUGGED AND PROCEEDED TO MOVE FORWARD TO THE FLOORBOARD. LUCKILY THE STOPLIGHT HAD CHANGED TO GREEN AND THE VEHICLES AHEAD OF ME ADVANCED. KNOWING THAT I HAD AN ISSUE WITH STOPPING THE VEHICLE, I SHIFTED THE VEHICLE INTO NEUTRAL IN CASE I NEEDED TO PULL THE PARKING BRAKE. AS I WAS NEARING A RESIDENTIAL AREA WITHIN A QUARTER MILE FROM MY HOME, I SLOWLY ADVANCED MY VEHICLE WITH EMERGENCY FLASHERS ON TO MY HOME. MY HUSBAND CALLED THE LOCAL FORD DEALER AND FORD MOTOR COMPANY. WE WILL NOT DRIVE THIS VEHICLE AS IT IS UNSAFE IN THIS CONDITION. WE ARE WAITING FOR THE NOTICE TO HAVE THIS PART REPLACED PER FORD (UNTIL NOVEMBER!!)
