STEERING

4/30/2015 - WALKER, MI
FORD ISSUED A RECALL FOR MY 2010 ESCAPE (NHTSA RECALL: 14V-284) FOR POWER STEERING ISSUES WHICH I RESPONDED TO AND A LOCAL DEALERSHIP HAD IT IN FOR SERVICE. NOW I AM STARTING TO EXPERIENCE THE ISSUES THAT WERE CITED IN THE RECALL INCLUDING LOSS OF POWER STEERING LEADING ME TO BELIEVE THAT THE RECALL DID NOT CORRECT THE SITUATION AT ALL.

4/29/2015 - TOMS RIVER, NJ
FOR THE FIRST TIME THE ENGINE COMPLETELY SHUT OFF WHILE DRIVING, I WAS TURNING LEFT ONTO MY MOTHER'S STREET, GOING APPROXIMATELY 20/25 MPH. THERE WAS NO WARNING, THE VEHICLE JUST SHUT OFF WHILE DRIVING. I WAS ABLE TO TURN THE CAR OFF, PUT THE VEHICLE IN PARK, AND RESTART THE CAR WITHOUT A PROBLEM. IT HAPPENED AGAIN ABOUT 4 WEEKS LATER AND AGAIN, I WAS GOING SLOW AS I WAS IN MY PARKING GARAGE AT WORK, APPROXIMATELY 15/20 MPH WHEN MY CAR SHUT OFF WHILE DRIVING WITHOUT ANY WARNING SIGNS. I PUT THE CAR IN PARK, RESTARTED AND STARTED DRIVING AGAIN. AS I WAS APPROACHING ANOTHER LEVEL IN THE PARKING GARAGE, THE SAME THING HAPPENED-THE CAR SHUT OFF. I WAS ABLE TO PUT IT IN PARK AND START DRIVING. THIS IS A HUGE SAFETY ISSUE AS CARS HAVE ALMOST REAR ENDED ME AND I DRIVE WITH MY 2 YOUNG SONS IN THE CAR. PREVIOUS TO THESE INCIDENCES I TOOK MY CAR TO FORD FOR RECALLS REGARDING THE THROTTLE BODY, WHICH CAN APPARENTLY CAUSE THIS PROBLEM TO OCCUR.
