THE HIGH AC LINE DRIPS ON THE SERPENTINE BELT AS A RESULT OF CONDENSATION DURING AC USE. THIS CAUSES A LIGHT SQUEAL THAT LEADS TO A LOUD SQUEAL. DURING THE SUMMER, THE ONLY WORK AROUND IS HAVING THE BELT CLEANED REGULARLY DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS. EVENTUALLY, WHILE OPERATING THE VEHICLE ON THE EXPRESSWAY, THE MOISTURE CAUSED THE COMPRESSOR TO SEIZE. WHEN THE COMPRESSOR SEIZED, IT CAUSED THE BELT TO SNAP WHICH CAUSED THE VEHICLE TO HAVE A LOSS OF POWER DURING OPERATION WHICH MADE ME ALMOST LOSE CONTROL OF MY VEHICLE POTENTIALLY LEADING TO AN ACCIDENT. THE MANUFACTURER HAS ACKNOWLEDGED A MANUFACTURER DEFECT BUT WILL NOT GET BACK TO ME TO RESOLVE THE MATTER. THE MANUFACTURER SUGGESTED THAT I GO TO THE DEALERSHIP AND PAY FOR THE REPAIR WITH HOPES THAT IT WILL BE RECALLED IN THE FUTURE AND I BE REIMBURSED. HOWEVER, THE DEALERSHIPS AREN'T ABLE TO PERFORM A REPAIR BECAUSE THERE IS NO WAY TO REPAIR IT WITHOUT A RECALL.

(SENT TO FORD) THIS LETTER SERVES TO INFORM YOU OF A SERIOUS MECHANICAL DEFECT. I DRIVE A 2007 FORD TAURUS SEL (1FAFP56U47A218076) WITH APPROXIMATELY 162,500 MILES. THE CAR IS IN GOOD SHAPE AND HAS REGULAR MAINTENANCE. WE ALSO OWN A FORD MUSTANG, FORD FOCUS, AND FORD F-150. WE HAVE BEEN REGULAR FORD CUSTOMERS FOR YEARS. TODAY I DROVE MY CAR ON THE INTERSTATE FOR A FEW MINUTES BEFORE SOMETHING WAS APPARENTLY VERY WRONG. I SPED UP TO MERGE WITH TRAFFIC AND SUDDENLY THE CAR CONTINUED ACCELERATING, EVEN WITH MY FOOT OFF THE GAS. I USED THE BRAKE TO SLOW DOWN A BIT, BUT IT WOULD NOT SLOW DOWN ENOUGH. FROM THERE I BEGAN HAVING A PANIC ATTACK. I WASN+T SURE IF I COULD GET OUT OF TRAFFIC WITHOUT HITTING SOMEONE AND OFF THE EXIT RAMP. WITHOUT GOING INTO ALL THE DETAILS, I MANAGED TO USE THE EXIT LANE AND SOMEWHAT SAFELY STOP THE CAR AT AN ABANDONED GAS STATION. UPON TRYING TO BRING THE CAR TO A FULL STOP, I USED THE PARKING BRAKE AND PUT THE CAR IN PARK. THE ENGINE ROARED AND THE RPMS SKYROCKETED TO 4,000 BEFORE I WAS ABLE TO TURN THE CAR OFF. HAD THIS NOT BEEN A MONDAY EARLY AFTERNOON WITHOUT MUCH TRAFFIC ON A SUNNY DAY, I DON+T KNOW IF THIS STORY WOULD HAVE ENDED AS WELL. I TRULY FEARED FOR MY LIFE AND THOSE ON THE ROAD WITH ME. IT IS CLEAR AFTER THE FACT THAT THE CRUISE CONTROL LINKAGE CAME OFF. (I HAVE NEVER USED THE CRUISE CONTROL IN THIS CAR, INCLUDING TODAY.) LOOKING AT THIS I CANNOT IMAGINE HOW FORD COULD DESIGN SOMETHING SO CLEARLY DESIGNED TO FAIL. WHEN THE GAS IS PUSHED, POSSIBLY IN EXCESS TO ENTER A BUSY INTERSTATE, THE PLASTIC ASSEMBLY IS PUSHED TO THE POINT THAT IT WILL EVENTUALLY FAIL. I DEMAND A FULL INVESTIGATION OF THIS SO THAT NO ONE ELSE+S LIFE WILL BE ENDANGERED AS MINE WAS TODAY. I HAVE YET TO FULLY RECOVER THIS HIGHLY EMOTIONAL EVENT. I WOULD APPRECIATE A COPY OF YOUR INVESTIGATIVE FINDINGS.
