JANUARY 16, 2009 I BEGAN HAVING TROUBLE WITH MY CAR ACCELERATOR STICKING. I HAD TO RIDE WITH MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE BECAUSE CAR WOULD ACCELERATE TO HIGH SPEED IF I TOOK MY FOOT OFF THE BRAKE. I TOOK IT INTO MY LOCAL FORD DEALER AND THEY FOUND THE RETAINER ON THROTTLE BODY BROKEN AND THE THROTTLE BODY, GASKET AND CRUISE CONTROL CABLE NEED REPLACEMENT AT $249+ TAX, PLUS I HAD TO PAY $43 JUST TO FIND ALL THIS OUT. THEY HAD TO CUT THE CRUISE CONTROL CABLE OUT SO THE ACCELERATOR WOULD STOP STICKING. I DECLINED THE REPAIR, AS I FELT THIS VEHICLE SHOULD HAVE BEEN RECALLED FOR THIS DANGEROUS PROBLEM AND/OR IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A WARRANTY REPAIR. SO NOW I HAVE NO CRUISE CONTROL, WHICH I PAID FOR WHEN I BOUGHT THE VEHICLE IN 2005. I FEEL FORD SHOULD FOOT THE BILL FOR THIS REPAIR, SINCE THIS WAS APPARENTLY A MANUFACTURING DEFECT, AND CAR SHOULD HAVE BEEN RECALLED.

Now lower prices on ALL K&N products. Save up to 15% / $85.
