CAR SHAKES WHEN COASTING BETWEEN. 2K RPMS AND 3K RPMS CAR STARTS TO HESITATE AND ONLY WAY TO STOP THE SHAKING IS STEP OPN CLUTCH AND SHIFT TO ANOTHER GEAR OR STEP ON THE GAS PEDAL AND AFTER A COUPLE OF SECONDS IT WILL BEGIN TO ACCELERATE AND SHAKE MORE AGGRESSIVELY BEFORE RETURNING TO NORMAL OPERATION WITHOUT SHAKING WHICH WOULD BE VERY DANGEROUS IF I WERE TO TRY TO MATCH SPEED WHILE ENTERING A FREE WAY OR AVOIDING A POTENTIAL ACCIDENT.

WE NOW KNOW THE PROBLEM OCCURS ONLY WHEN SOMEONE SITS IN THE BACK SEAT BEHIND THE DRIVER. WE HAVE DUPLICATED THE PROBLEM NUMEROUS TIMES. SITTING IT THE BACK SEAT CAUSES SOMETHING TO SHORT OUT AND THE CAR DIES. THIS WAS VERY DANGEROUS IN REAL DRIVING CONDITIONS AND WE ARE LUCKY NO ONE WAS HURT. *TR

Summary of Complaint

AFTER DRIVING FOR A TOTAL OF 6 HOURS WITH 1 STOP AT A REST AREA AFTER THE FIRST 3 HOURS OF DRIVING, I MADE ANOTHER STOP TO REFUEL. AS I WAS EXITING THE FREEWAY AND MADE THE FIRST TURN AT 5-10 MPH, MY VEHICLE MADE A LOUD METALLIC CRANKING NOISE FOLLOWED WITH STRONG VIBRATIONS THROUGHOUT MY CAR. AFTER REFUELING, I RETURNED TO THE FREEWAY. IT SEEMED THAT THE NOISE AND VIBRATION ONLY APPEARS WHEN MAKING LEFT/RIGHT TURN AT LOW SPEED (5-10 MPH) AFTER A CONTINUOUS NON-STOP DRIVING OF AT LEAST 2-3 HOURS. I TOOK MY CAR TO THE NEAREST FORD DEALER (JIM WILSON MOTORS) AND THEIR TECHNICIANS ISOLATED THE NOISE AND VIBRATION TO THE REAR AXLE DIFFERENTIAL. *TR

VIN: 1ZVBP8AM8C5****

Summary of Complaint

DURING AN EVENING RAIN STORM I EXPERIENCED THAT MY VISIBILITY OF THE ROAD WAS IMPAIRED DUE TO WHERE MY WIPERS STOPPED ON THE WINDSHIELD. THE PASSENGER SIDE WIPER STOPS DIRECTLY IN THE DRIVERS FIELD OF VIEW BEFORE RETURNING TO ITS PARKED POSITION. THE RAINWATER, WIPER BLADE, AND SKID RESIDUE FROM THE WIPER, CREATE A VISUALLY BLURRED AREA ON THE WINDSHIELD CAUSING AN UNCLEAR VIEW OF THE ROAD FOR A FEW SECONDS. I HAVE DISCOVERED THIS CONDITION IS UNCOMMON ON OTHER MAKES OF VEHICLES. TYPICALLY, PASSENGER SIDE WIPER BLADES STOP SEVERAL DEGREES SHORT OF THE POSITION DESCRIBED. THIS CONDITION CAN BE CORRECTED BY MODIFYING THE DEGREE OF TRAVEL PERMITTED BY THE WIPER. FROM MY INQUIRIES TO THE FORD MOTOR COMPANY AND SEVERAL FORD SERVICE DEPARTMENTS NO CURRENT METHOD OF ADJUSTMENT IS AVAILABLE NOR ARE THERE ANY CONCERNS REGARDING THIS ISSUE. I BELIEVE A TEST STUDY WILL REVEAL THERE IS A POTENTIAL HAZARD TO OBSTRUCTED VIEW OF THE ROAD DUE TO INCORRECT WIPER TRAVEL. *TR

Summary of Complaint

THE GETRAG MT-82 MANUAL TRANSMISSION IN MY MUSTANG HAS HAD A HISTORY OF SHIFTS THAT TAKE EXTRA EFFORT, CLUNKY SHIFT ENGAGEMENT, AND A HIGH PITCHED WHINING NOISE FROM THE DRIVETRAIN UNDER THROTTLE APPLICATION, SINCE I BOUGHT THE VEHICLE USED 5 YEARS AGO. I HAVE HAD IT LOOKED AT AT A FORD DEALER, BUT THEY SAY NOTING IS WRONG. THE WHINE IS PRESENT EVERY TIME I DRIVE, THE OTHER ISSUES ARE INTERMITTENT. IN THE MOST ODD INCIDENT THAT I HAD IN THE VEHICLE, I WAS IN 2ND GEAR UNDER THROTTLE AND THE CAR BEGAN TO SHAKE WILDLY BACK AND FORTH, WITH A LOUD CLUNKING NOISE COMING FROM THE TRANSMISSION. I'M NOT SURE EXACTLY ON THE DATE, A FEW YEARS AGO FOR SURE. I HAVE TRIED TO REPLICATE THE EFFECT, AND IT HAS HAPPENED A FEW OTHER TIMES IN A LESS DRAMATIC MANNER, BUT NEVER QUITE LIKE THAT. I AM CONCERNED THAT THE TRANSMISSION WILL NOT LAST THE LIFE OF THE VEHICLE, AND FEEL IT IS NOT VERY SAFE. I KNOW THAT I AM NOT THE ONLY PERSON WHO HAS HAD PROBLEMS WITH THIS TRANSMISSION. THANK YOU FOR THE INVESTIGATION.

Summary of Complaint

TAKATA RECALL - I WAS AT A STOPLIGHT DURING RUSH HOUR ON A BUSY CITY STREET. THE LIGHT TURNED GREEN AND BEFORE I MADE IT 10 FEET THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME SLAMMED ON HIS BRAKES. I HIT HIM FROM BEHIND, IT WAS A VERY MINOR IMPACT BUT MY AIRBAG DEPLOYED AND EXPLODED/RUPTURED OVER MY LAP. IT SHATTERED MY IPHONE AND BURNED MY LEFT LEG ABOUT 6 INCHES ABOVE MY KNEE. UPON INSPECTION OF THE FRONT END OF MY CAR I SAW VIRTUALLY NO VISIBLE DAMAGE, ONLY A 2CM PAINT CHIP AND A VERY SLIGHTLY BENT LICENSE PLATE. MY CAR DRIVES PERFECTLY, THERE ARE NO INDICATOR LIGHTS EXCEPT FOR THE AIRBAG LIGHT. THIS LEADS ME TO BELIEVE THAT I AM DEALING WITH A FAULTY DEFECTIVE TAKATA AIRBAG. I ALSO WANT TO ADD THAT I ALREADY HAD MY PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAG REPLACED DUE TO A RECALL NOTICE I RECEIVED ABOUT 6 MONTHS AGO.

THEY ONLY SENT ONE FOR THE PASSENGER AIR BAG , UNTIL THIS WEEK WHEN I RECEIVED A SECOND NOTICE FOR THE TAKATA AIR BAGS FROM THE DAY I TOOK HER OFF THE LOT. I WANTED TO KNOW WHY MY FRONT END SUSPENSION IS MAKING A CLUNKING SOUND IN FRONT AND IT'S BEEN THERE SINCE THE FIRST DAY, I EVEN HAD HER LOOKED AT TO MAKE SURE SHE WASN'T DAMAGED, WITHIN MINUTES THEY CAME BACK AND SAID SHE'S FINE NO PROBLEMS AND WHY MY TRANSMISSION DOES NOT WANT TO SHIFT TO HIGHER GEARS FROM 1ST THRU OVERDRIVE, SHE BOGS DOWN LIKE THERE ISNT ANY FUEL GETTING TO HER ENGINE AND SHE DOESN'T SHIFT THROUGH THE GEARS PROPERLY, IF I HAD RECIEVED THE RECALLS IT WOULD OF BEEN IN IMMEDIATELY. MY TOP LEAKS WATER WHEN WASHED SO IT CAN CAUSE DAMAGE ON THE INSIDE ESPECIALLY THE DOOR ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS, YET FORD REFUSED TO HAVE THE TOP REDONE SINCE THEY FEEL IT'S JUST NORMAL WEAR YET ITS HAPPENED SINCE THE FIRST TIME I HAD TO WASH HER. I'M STARTING TO THINK THINK FORD HAS TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF ME IN THIS CASE AS I STILL CAN NOT GET ANY UPDATED INFORMATION ON MY CAR AND IF I CAN EITHER GET THE WORK DONE OR THE VEHICLE REPLACED, MIND YOU I STILL OWE ON HER AND TO BE HONEST I DO NOT WANT A TRADE IN , I'D RATHER FORD FIX THESE ISSUES AND WRITE OFF THE REMAINING DEBT DUE TO NEGLIGENCE FOR NOT ADVISING ME OF THESE RECALLS IN A TIMELY MANNER AND FOR BIT FIXING THE ISSUES WHEN THE RECALLS CAME OUT . IT'S QUITE FRUSTRATING TO KNOW I'VE PAID OVER 20000 FOR A CAR THAT THEY ARE WILLFULLY NEGLECTING TO FIX AND YET I'M TO BE LIABLE FOR THE DEBT NO MATTER THE POSSIBLITY THAT THEY ARE NEGLIGENT AND DISMISSIVE OF MY CLAIMS.

WITHOUT WARNING AND WITHOUT ME TOUCHING THE SHIFTER, THE VEHICLE SUDDENLY DOWNSHIFTED INTO 1ST GEAR LOCKING THE REAR WHEELS UNTIL MY SPEED WAS REDUCED AND THEY BEGAN TO ROLL AGAIN. I NEVER LOST CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE BUT IT SCARED ME TO DEATH! THERE WAS LIGHT UP WRENCH SYMBOL ERROR WARNING. THE DASH TURNED RED AND ALL SPEED, FUEL LEVEL AND MILEAGE WAS BLANK. I PUT THE VEHICLE IN PARK AND MADE SURE IT WAS ENGAGED. I PULLED THE EMERGENCY BRAKE ON AND SHUT THE IGNITION OFF. CHECKED THE TRANSMISSION FLUID WHICH WAS FINE. MY MUSTANG WAS MADE IN JANUARY 2012 AT THE FLAT ROCK ASSEMBLY PLANT. AS I BEGAN MY RESEARCH, I FOUND THE FORD RECALL 16S19. WHICH DESCRIBED EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED IN MY SITUATION. WHEN THE DEALERSHIP CALLED FORD FOR APPROVAL, THEY SAID MY VEHICLE WAS NOT AFFECTED BECAUSE MY VIN WAS NOT SHOWING IT AS AN EXPOSED VEHICLE. IT MANUFACTURE DATE, ASSEMBLY PLANT, TRANSMISSION TYPE ALL MATCH BUT SOMEHOW MY VIN WAS NOT SHOWING. I PAID $950 OUT OF MY OWN POCKET FOR THE EXACT REPAIR THIS RECALL CALLED FOR.

Summary of Complaint

TAKATA RECALL I TOOK MY FORD MUSTANG TO CAPITAL FORD, 4222 OLEANDER DR, WILMINGTON, NC, 28403 ABOUT 2 MONTHS AGO FOR SERVICE. THE SERVICE ADVISOR SAID THEY DID NOT HAVE AIR BAGS FOR PASSENGER SIDE RECALL AND WOULD ORDER ONE AND CALL TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT WHEN IT CAME IT. I CALLED THE FORD DEALER AGAIN YESTERDAY ABOUT THE AIRBAG AND SPOKE WITH ANOTHER PERSON, A FEMALE IN THEIR SERVICE DEPARTMENT. I ASKED ABOUT SCHEDULING THE AIR BAG REPLACEMENT AND SHE LOOKED UP MY RECORD OF SERVIE AT THEIR DEALERSHIP. ASTONISHINGLY, THE AIRBAG HAD NEVER BEEN ORDERED. THE ORIGINAL SERVICE ADVISOR CLEARLY COULD CARE A LESS IF THE BAG BLEW UP SPEWING SHRAPNEL IN MY PASSENGERS FACES, HOW GROSSLY NEGLIGENT. THE WOMAN SAID THEY WERE OUT OT AIRBAGS AND WOULD HAVE TO ORDER ONE AND SOMEONE FROM THE DEPARTMENT WOULD CALL ME BACK ABOUT IT AND ANOTHER UNRELATED ISSUE. INCREDIBLY, NO ONE HAS CALLED ME BACK. IT IS CLEAR THIS DEALERSHIP IS ONLY INTERESTED IN HIGH DOLLAR REPAIRS TAKING UP APPOINTMENT TIMES AND COULD CARE A LESS ABOUT THE EXPLODING AIR BAG DEFECTIVE PRODUCT THEY SOLD BECAUSE THEY CAN'T CHARGE FOR IT. I THINK THIS NEGLIGENCE AND CONTINUOUS KICKING THE CAN DOWN THE ROAD IS POLICY. THE DEALER HAS A MONOPOLY AND IS THE ONLY FORD DEALERSHIP IN THE CITY SO THEY CAN USE THAT ADVANTAGE TO BULLY CUSTOMERS AND REFUSE TO REPAIR DEADLY DEFECTS. I THINK AN INVESTIGATION INTO THIS IS WARRANTED TO SEE JUST HOW MANY OTHER PEOPLE ARE BEING GIVEN THE "OH WE'LL HAVE TO ORDER IT AND CALL YOU BACK TO SCHEDULE IT" LIE. THIS IS CLEARLY IMMORAL AND REFLECTIVE OF THE OWNER'S GREED AND INDECENCY. SINCE THE ORIGINAL SERVICE ADVISOR FAILED TO ORDER MY REPLACEMENT AIRBAG MORE TYPES OF CARS HAVE BEEN ADDED TO THE RECALL. IT IS PLAINLY EVIDENT THAT THE OMISSION BY THIS COMPANY IS AN UNFAIR AND DECEPTIVE TRADE PRACTICE SERIOUSLY DETRIMENTAL TO THE CONSUMER ACTING REASONABLY UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES.

Summary of Complaint

I HAD THE DRIVERS SIDE AIRBAG REPLACED BUT THEY DID NOT DO THE PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAG AT THE SAME TIME SO NOW ITS A MAJOR INCONVENIENCE TO GO BACK INTO THE DEALER FOR ANOTHER ROUND OF WAITING. THEY SAID THEY WOULD COME TO MY HOME (AS RECALL NOTICE NUMBER THREE AND FOUR SPELLED OUT) TO PERFORM THIS SERVICE BUT THEY DID NOT SHOW UP AS SET UP IN ADVANCE. THE DEALER IS GOLDEN CIRCLE FORD IN JACKSON TN (731-554-7142) AND THE SERVICE REP IS MELINDA. SINCE THE DEALERSHIPS ARE NOT SERIOUS ABOUT PERFORMING THIS RECALL I GUESS LIKE MILLIONS OF OTHER OWNERS I WILL NOT TRY TO GET THIS DONE. THE DEALERSHIPS ARE NOT TAKING THIS RECALL SERIOUSLY AND FORD IS NOT PUSHING THEM TO PERFORM THIS SERVICE IN A TIMELY MANNER. I THINK YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO START PUT GROWING FINES IN PLACE TO GET THEIR ATTENTION.

Summary of Complaint

IN 2012 OR 2013 I HAD AN ACCIDENT CAUSED BY UNINTENDED ACCELERATION. THE MUSTANG RAN INTO THE BACK OF SEMI TRUCK. UNATTENDED ACCELERATION HAPPENED TWICE IN THE SAME DAY AND THE SECOND TIME I COULD NOT GET IT TO BREAK FREE AND STOP UNTIL THE LAST SECOND BUT IT WAS TOO LATE IT HIT THE SEMI TRUCK TRAILER IN FRONT OF ME. THIS WAS INSPITE OF ME HAVING BOTH FEET PUSHING STRONGLY ON THE BRAKE PEDAL. WE HAD STARTED OFF SLOWLY FROM A RED LIGHT AND THEN THE CAR DOWNSHIFTED AND TOOK OFF. SOUTHWEST FORD IN WEATHERFORD, TX HAD CALLED THE FORD ENGINEER TO COME LOOK AT IT. IT TOOK A MONTH FOR HIM TO COME. HE LOOKED AT IT IN ITS BANGED UP SHAPE AND DECLARED THAT THERE WAS NO PROBLEM. WHEN I GOT THE CAR BACK SOMETHING HAD CHANGED. IT SEEMED LIKE THE SOFTWARE HAD BEEN CHANGED BECAUSE IT NEVER HAD THE PROBLEM AGAIN AND WHENEVER THE BRAKE WAS TOUCHED IT WOULD KILL ANY ACCELERATION IMMEDIATELY. ALSO I LOST ABOUT 3 MILES PER GALLON TILL THIS DAY. THE ENGINEER BLAMED ME WHEN HE OBVIOUSLY UPDATED THE SOFTWARE. ALSO THE VERY NEXT DAY AFTER THE ENGINEERS VISIT FORD WAS HIT WITH A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT FOR JUST THIS REPORTED UNATTENDED ACCELERATION ACROSS MOST OF ITS MODELS. NOT MY FAULT! *TR
