Summary of Complaint

THE FIRST INCIDENT OCCURRED ON 12/15/2011 AS I WAS TRAVELING FROM SAVANNAH, GA. TO ATLANTA, GA. I WAS GETTING OFF MY EXIT TO THE I675 AND SLOWED DOWN BY HITTING THE BRAKE AND THE VEHICLE STARTED TO SPEED UP. I WAS NOT USING THE SPEED CONTROL AT ALL AS I MISSED MY EXIT AND SHUT THE VEHICLE OFF IN ORDER TO STOP. ON 12/22/2011 I WAS COMING HOME TO DETROIT, MI. AND HAD AN ACCIDENT IN GA. I WAS TRAVELING AT 35 MPH, IT WAS RAINING HEAVILY AND AS I PROCEEDED TO SLOW DOWN AROUND A CURVE I IMMEDIATELY LOST CONTROL OF VEHICLE AS THE TRUCK FISHTAILED INTO ONCOMING TRAFFIC AND I TURNED MY WHEEL TO AVOID A COLLISION WITH 2 VEHICLES IN THAT LANE AND ENDED UP IN A CULVERT.I SUSTAINED MINOR INJURIES BUT LUCKILY THERE WERE NO OTHER INJURIES OR DEATHS AS THIS VEHICLE WAS THE ONLY ONE INVOLVED. AT THAT TIME I DID NOT PUT 2 AND 2 TOGETHER AS I THOUGHT THE ROAD WAS SLIPPERY AND I COULDN'T AVOID WHAT HAD HAPPENED. ON 12/24/2011, I VISITED MY FAMILY IN ROCHESTER, MI. AND WENT TO SLOW DOWN AT A LIGHT AND THE VEHICLE BEGAN SPEEDING UP AGAIN CAUSING ME TO GO THROUGH THE LIGHT AND I TURNED THE ENGINE OFF BECAUSE I COULD NOT STOP THE VEHICLE AND I REALIZED THE PEDDLE WAS TO THE FLOOR. LUCKILY I WAS DRIVING THIS VEHICLE INSTEAD OF MY SISTER WHO ACTUALLY OWNS THIS. THIS IS MY FIRST ACCIDENT SINCE I HAVE GOTTEN MY LICENSE BACK IN 1968 AND IT COULD HAVE BEEN A LOT WORSE. AT NO TIME WAS I USING THE SPEED CONTROL. *TR

Summary of Complaint

"TAKATA RECALL" FORD MOTOR COMPANY SENT ME A RECALL NOTICE EARLY IN 2018, TELLING ME THAT MY RANGER WAS UNDRIVEABLE DUE TO HIGH RISK TAKATA AIRBAG INFLATORS. THE NOTICE TOLD ME TO CONTACT MY DEALER, SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT FOR RECALL 18S02 AND THAT THEY WOULD ARRANGE TO HAVE IT PICKED UP OR TOWED. I WAS NOT TO DRIVE IT TO THE DEALER. THE NOTICE SAID I WOULD BE PROVIDED A LOANER IF NEEDED. I CALLED THE NEAREST FORD DEALER (GREAT LAKES FORD IN MUSKEGON, MI). I WAS TOLD BY THEIR EMPLOYEE TO CONTACT EAGLE TOWING AND HAVE MY CAR TOWED TO THE DEALERSHIP, WHICH I DID. THE CAR WAS TOWED TO THE DEALERSHIP (AFTER THEY WERE CLOSED) AND THE TOW TRUCK DRIVER DEMANDED I PAY HIM AND GET REIMBURSEMENT FROM THE DEALERSHIP. SINCE THE DEALERSHIP HAD TOLD ME TO USE THIS TOW COMPANY AND THE RECALL NOTICE SAID FORD WOULD PAY FOR IT, I THOUGHT GETTING REIMBURSED WOULD BE EASY. WRONG. AFTER ALMOST A YEAR AND MANY PHONE CALLS, EMAILS AND 1 LETTER TO THE DEALERSHIP I HAVE RECEIVED NOTHING. TODAY THE DEALERSHIP OFFERED TO PAY ME HALF OF THE COST I INCURRED TO HAVE THE RANGER TOWED. I REFUSED THEIR OFFER. I BELIEVE IT IS CLEARLY IMMORAL FOR FORD TO TELL ME TO HAVE THE VEHICLE TOWED FOR A REQUIRED RECALL AND THEN REFUSE TO REIMBURSE ME WHEN I DID EXACTLY WHAT THEY TOLD ME TO DO, BUT I DO NOT KNOW IF WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TO ME IS ILLEGAL. I AM WRITING TO THE NHTSA TO SEE IF THERE ARE APPLICABLE RULES/LAWS REQUIRING THE MANUFACTURER TO HONOR THEIR PROMISE TO MAKE REPAIRS REQUIRED BY THE NHTSA TO MY VEHICLE AT NO COST TO ME THE OWNER. THANK YOU, I APPRECIATE YOUR ASSISTANCE IN HELPING ME UNDERSTAND THIS PROCESS WHICH DOES NOT (TO ME) SEEM TO BE WORKING THE WAY IT SHOULD. IF IT IS PERTINENT, THE TOWING COST $185.40 BECAUSE IT IS A SPARSELY POPULATED FARMING COMMUNITY AND THE NEAREST DEALERSHIP WAS OVER 20 MILES AWAY. I DID NOT NEED AND DID NOT REQUEST A LOANER VEHICLE. *TR

SITTING AT A STOP LIGHT ENGINE STARTED RUNNING ROUGH THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WAS FLASHING. I TOOK OFF AND IT WAS NOT RUNNING WELL AND COULDN'T GET SPEED GOING UNTIL AROUND A 1/4 MILE DOWN THE ROAD. IT HAS HAPPENED SEVERAL TIMES ALWAYS AT IDLE SPEEDS, ONCE I GET IT MOVING AND GO UP TO HIGHWAY SPEEDS THE PROBLEM SEEMS TO GO AWAY BUT THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT STAYS ON. I HAVE HAD THE CODE READ AND THE LIKELY SOLUTION IS TO REPLACE CYLINDER HEAD ASSEMBLY. THE CODE WAS P0316 WHICH INDICATES TOO MANY MISFIRES AFTER STARTUP AND CODE P0304 WHICH IS CYLINDER NUMBER 4 MISFIRE. NEEDLESS TO SAY I HAD DRIVERS BEHIND ME HONKING AND FLASHING LIGHTS BUT THE TRUCK JUST WOULDN'T GO OVER ABOUT 5 MPH UNTIL I WAS DOWN THE ROAD A BIT. THE FIRST TIME IT HAPPENED IN APRIL OF 2018 AND IT HAS INTERMITTENTLY DONE IT SEVERAL TIMES SINCE THEN WITH THE LATEST TIME BEING YESTERDAY 11/5/18. I HAVE DONE SOME RESEARCH AND FOUND OUT THAT THERE ARE KNOWN ISSUES WITH THE HEADS ON THIS FORD RANGER. I HAVE CONTACTED THEM ABOUT THE ISSUE AND SEEMED TO HAVE NOT GOTTEN ANYWHERE WITH IT.
