SERVICE BRAKES

9/20/2017 - FORT WASHINGTON, MD
ABS WARNING LIGHT COMES ON AND CHECK BRAKE SYSTEM MESSAGE COMES ON AT ANYTIME WHILE DRIVING ON SITTING STILL. LOSE BRAKING POWER, CAUSING DRIVER TO PUSH BRAKE VERY HARD TO STOP AND BRAKE PEDAL SOMETIMES GOES TO THE FLOOR AND YOU HAVE TO USE EMERGENCY BRAKE TO STOP. DEALER COULDN'T LOOK AT THE CAR FOR THREE WEEKS SAID ITS OKAY TO DRIVE IN "MANUAL MODE", HOWEVER MANUAL MODE ONLY USES REAR BRAKES AND WILL TAKE VEHICLE A LONG DISTANCE TO STOP IN RAINY CONDITIONS.(I WENT THROUGH A BUSY INTERSECTION IN THE RAIN AND ALMOST HAD AN ACCIDENT SO LEFT IT AT THE DEALER). DEALER HAD VEHICLE FOR ALMOST SIX WEEKS, REPLACED THE ABS HUC TWICE, FINALLY CALLED FORD. FORD ADVISED TO REPLACE ALL BRAKE HOSES "DUE TO RESTRICTIONS". DEALERS ARE TELLING OWNERS THEY HAVE TO REPLACE ABS HCU AND PART ALONE COST $4700.00. HOWEVER, FORD KNOWS OF THE PROBLEM AND IS NOT PUTTING OUT A BULLETIN OR RECALL, UNTIL SOMEONE GETS KILLED. OWNERS ARE TRADING THE UNSAFE CAR BECAUSE THE DEALER IS MISDIAGNOSING THE REAL PROBLEM WHICH COST APPROXIMATELY $300.00

AFTER PRESSING THE BRAKE PEDDLE, THE ABS LIGHT AND RED BRAKE LIGHT COME ON AND THE REGENERATIVE BRAKING AND POWER BRAKES FAIL. IT SEEMS TO HAPPEN ONLY WHEN THE OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE IS OVER 90 DEGREES. ONCE IT HAPPENS, BRAKING REQUIRES A HARD PUSH OF THE BRAKE PEDDLE TO THE FLOOR AND STOPPING TAKES LONGER. IT IS INDEED DANGEROUS. MY RESEARCH SHOWS THAT THIS IS A COMMON AND DANGEROUS PROBLEM. THANKS FOR YOUR TIME, JEFF

STEERING

2/24/2017 - TONGANOXIE, KS
THE POWER TORQUE SENSOR FOR THE POWER STEERING WAS ALREADY RECALLED AND HAD THE SYSTEM UPDATED BEFORE I GOT THE CAR IN 2014. THE CARS STEERING WHEEL STARTS SHAKING A LITTLE THEN ALL OF A SUDDLE THE STEERING WHEEL LOCKS UP AND THE POWER STEERING STOPS WORKING, SO YOU CAN'T HARDLY TURN IT. I CAME INCHES FROM GETTING IN A WRECK. YOU CAN UPDATE THE SYSTEM BUT IT WILL ONLY WORK FOR ABOUT 1 OR 2 YEARS.
