THIS FAILURE DATE IS ACTUALLY THE FIRST OF 2 FAILURES. THE FIRST FAILURE RESULTED IN THE CRUISE JUST BEING INOPERATIVE. THE FORD DEALER REPLACED THE CABLE AND EVERYTHING WAS FINE UNTIL AT APPROXIMATELY 87000 MI DURING NOVEMBER OF LAST YEAR. THIS TIME THE CABLE UNHOOKED AGAIN HOLDING THE THROTTLE OPEN THIS TIME CAUSING MY WIFE TO HAVE TO STAND ON THE BRAKE TO STOP THE CAR. WHEN SHE PUT IT IN PARK THE ENGINE IDLED AT APPROXIMATELLY 3500 RPM. WE TOOK IT TO THE DEALER AND DEMONSTRATED TO THE SERVICE MANAGER HOW THE CLIP ON END OF CRUISE CABLE HELD THE THROTTLE OPEN. HE AGREED THAT THIS CONDITION WAS UNSAFE. HE RECOMMENDED CHANGING THE CABLE AGAIN AT OUR EXPENSE. WE DECLINED. NO POINT IN PUTTING A PART ON THAT IS GOING TO FAIL BASED ON THE HISTORY AND POSSIBLY CAUSE AN ACCIDENT NEXT TIME. REPAIRED IT MYSELF BY PINNING THE CLIP SO IT CAN NOT COME APART AGAIN.
