Summary of Complaint

I WOULD BE DRIVING AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THE WHOLE VEHICLE WOULD JUST SHUT DOWN. THIS HAPPENED 3 OR 4 TIMES JUST GOING AT 25 TO 35 MPH. AT FIRST, I THOUGHT IT WAS A CLOGGED FUEL LINE SINCE IT WOULD SOMEHOW RESET ITSELF AFTER HAVING IT TOWED TO MY MECHANIC SO I REPLACED THE FILTER EVEN THOUGH I COULD SEE NOTHING WRONG. WHEN IT HAPPENED AGAIN ON A BACKCOUNTRY ROAD THE MECHANIC SAID IT WAS PROBABLY THE FUEL PUMP SO I HAD THE WHOLE THING REPLACED. IT HAPPENED ONE MORE TIME AFTER THAT, I WAS PULLING ONTO A MAJOR HIGHWAY AND HAD JUST GOTTEN UP TO SPEED 55 MPH AND THERE WAS A TRACTOR-TRAILER BEHIND ME WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN AGAIN EVERYTHING SHUT DOWN. LUCKILY I HAD ENOUGH MOMENT BUILT UP I WAS ABLE TO COAST TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD BEFORE GETTING HIT BY THE TRACTOR-TRAILER. I FINALLY LOOKED ONLINE AND FOUND THAT SOMEONE HAD MENTIONED THE SAME PROBLEM IT MAY BE THE INERTIA SWITCH. I CALLED UP A LOCAL DEALERSHIP AND HAD ASKED THE PARTS PERSON IF THE HAD A REPLACEMENT AND IF HE HEARD ANY PROBLEMS ABOUT IT. I WAS TOLD IT WOULD HAVE TO BE ORDERED BECAUSE THEY WERE OUT OF THEM, THEY HAD SOLD A FEW IN THE PAST MONTHS. WHEN I EXPLAINED THE PROBLEM I WAS TOLD OH YES WE HAVE HEARD ABOUT THAT HAPPENING BUT THERE WAS NO RECALL. I EXPLAINED HOW IT COULD BE A SAFETY PROBLEM AND WAS TOLD THAT IT MUST NOT BE HAPPENING ENOUGH FOR IT TO BE A RECALL. I RECENTLY FOUND THIS SITE AND HAVE SEEN THAT I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO HAD THIS HAPPEN SO AT LEAST I KNOW I WASN'T CRAZY. *TR

I HAD THE AIR BAGS REPLACED, AFTER NEW AIRBAGS WERE INSTALLED. AIR BAG WARNING LIGHT WAS FLASHING, CODE 27, WHICH MEANS PASSENGER AIR BAG BYPASS MODULE # F81B-14BZ68-AD. MODULE HAD A BAD INDICATOR LAMP WHICH IN TURNS DISABLES THE ENTIRE AIR BAG SYSTEM. SO IN MY OPINION FORD SHOULD REPAIR THIS SO THAT I CAN HAVE AIR BAGS TO PROTECT ME. WITH THIS LAMP NOT FIXED I HAVE NO AIR BAGS, SO THE RECALL WAS USELESS. I NEED THIS FIXED AND THINK IT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED A SAFETY ISSUE ALONG WITH THE AIR BAG RECALL. I SPOKE TO FORD AND THEY INFORMED ME THAT IT WAS OR MAYBE IS AN ISSUE, NO COMMITMENT THERE. I CANNOT AFFORD THE INSPECTION COSTS BUT YOU TUBE GAVE ME ALL THE INFORMATION I NEED TO KNOW, THE $89 FOR INSPECTION AND $125. FOR PARTS AND INSTALLATION ARE WAY OUT OF MY BUDGET. THIS IS A SAFETY MATTER THAT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED. YES THIS IS A CONSTANT CONDITION TO THE FORD RANGER AS IT SITES NOW.

Summary of Complaint

THE PASSENGER SIDE REAR SHACKLE RUSTED COMPLETELY OFF AND THE LEAF SPRING ALMOST WENT THROUGH THE BED OF THE TRUCK. THE TRUCK WAS NOT DRIVABLE UNTIL THE PASSENGER SIDE REAR SHACKLE WAS REPLACED. THIS WAS DISCOVERED AFTER DRIVING OVER A BUMP IN THE ROAD, HEARING A LOUD BANG AND EXPERIENCING A JOLT. ONCE PARKED THE TRUCK WAS COMPLETELY LOOKED OVER, WHICH LEAD TO MORE DISCOVERIES. A GIANT RUST HOLE HAS FORMED IN THE FRAME BEHIND THE SHACKLE ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE REAR AREA OF THE TRUCK. THIS TRUCK HAS BEEN WELL MAINTAINED THROUGHOUT THE YEARS AND WAS PROFESSIONALLY UNDER COATED A COUPLE YEARS AGO WITH NO HOLES IN THE FRAME OR VISIBLE RUST AT THAT TIME. THE FRAME HAS DETERIORATED RAPIDLY. LUCKILY I DID NOT TRY TO TOW ANYTHING WITH THIS TRUCK BECAUSE THE REAR PART OF THE FRAME LIKELY WOULD HAVE BEEN RIPPED OFF, LOSING WHAT WAS BEING TOWED AND POTENTIALLY CAUSING AN ACCIDENT. THERE IS ALSO A LARGE HOLE FORMING IN THE BED OF THE TRUCK.

RECALL ON AIRBAGS, RECEIVED REGISTERED LETTER FORM FORD STATING THAT AIR BAG PARTS WERE AVAILABLE. MADE AN APPOINTMENT WITH KELLY FORD MELBOURNE FLORIDA. THEY STATED THAT THE PARTS HAD TO BE ORDERED BUT AFTER 4 DAYS THEY STILL HAVE NOT RECEIVED THE PARTS EVEN THOUGH FORD SAYS THEY ARE AVAILABLE. THIS HAS BEEN ON GOING WITH FORD AND LOCAL DEALERS FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW AND BELIEVE THAT THIS IS BEING HANDLED VERY POORLY. CALLED FORD MANY TIMES AND NO HELP FROM THERE HELP LINE. WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO ACTUALLY GET REPLACEMENT PARTS FOR MY VEHICLE

Summary of Complaint

THIS 2005 TRUCK WAS KEPT IN A GARAGE FOR THE LAST 13 YEARS, ONLY HAS 50,000 MILES ON IT AND THE FRAME IS COMPLETELY ROTTED AND RUSTED. HAD THIS TRUCK INSPECTED THIS WEEK AND WAS TOLD IT NEEDS A NEW FRAME TO PASS INSPECTION. THE REST OF THE TRUCK IS IN PERFECT CONDITION. IT IS OUTRAGEOUS THAT THIS FRAME HAS ROTTED AWAY WHEN NOT EXPOSED TO THE ELEMENTS AND KEPT IN VERY GOOD CONDITION MY MECHANIC TOLD ME THAT THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH FORD RANGERS. SOMETHING SHOULD BE DONE BY FORD ABOUT THIS DEFECT LIKE TOYOTA DID... PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS. I AM VERY UPSET THAT I CAN NO LONGER DRIVE MY TRUCK. I LIVE ON SOCIAL SECURITY AND CAN NOT AFFORD A NEW VEHICLE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

Summary of Complaint

I RECEIVED A LETTER FROM FORD FOR SAFETY RECALL NOTICE 17S42/NHTSA RECALL 17V787 &17V788 FOR MY 2005 FORD RANGER IN EARLY AUGUST 2018. I IMMEDIATELY CALLED MY LOCAL FORD DEALER, MATTHEWS FORD IN NORWICH, N.Y 13815, TO SCHEDULE AN APPT. FOR REPAIR. ON 8/20 I RECEIVED ANOTHER LETTER FROM MOTOR VEHICLE DEPT. STATING NOT TO DRIVE MY VEHICLE UNTIL REPAIRED, I CALLED MATTHEWS FORD AGAIN ON 8/23 TO CHECK ON WHEN PARTS WOULD BE IN TO MAKE AN APPT. AND I WAS TOLD THEY DO NOT KNOW HOW LONG IT WOULD BE. IT HAS BEEN OVER A MONTH SINCE I RECEIVED MY FIRST NOTIFICATION AND I HAVE HAD TO DRIVE MY VEHICLE. I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE I CAN DO EXCEPT WAIT FOR THE FORD DEALER TO GET THE PARTS NECESSARY FOR REPAIR. I ASKED THE FORD SERVICE MANAGER ABOUT A LOANER VEHICLE AND WAS TOLD I WOULD HAVE TO CHECK WITH FORD AND THEY WOULD SEND ME TO A RENTAL AGENCY SUCH AS HERTZ. I HAVE NOT CONTACTED ANYONE ELSE AT THIS TIME, I HOPE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO HELP ME WITH THIS SITUATION. THANK YOU, [XXX] INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6). *CC *TR
