WE HAVE EXPERIENCED SIX DIFFERENT INSTANCES SINCE DECEMBER WHERE THE ENGINE WOULD COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN WHILE IN MOTION. RANGE OF SPEED AT TIME OF INCIDENT HAS BEEN BETWEEN 5 - 40 MPH. ON JANUARY 23, 2011, WHILE DRIVING AT 40 MPH DOWN A WINDY HILL, THE VEHICLE FLASHED THE WRENCH LIGHT THEN COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN CAUSING A LOSS OF POWER STEERING. AS A RESULT, I HAD A NEAR MISS OF A HEAD ON COLLISION WITH ANOTHER VEHICLE IN THE ONCOMING LANE AS THE TRUCK I WAS DRIVING VEERED INTO THE ONCOMING TRAFFIC BECAUSE I WAS UNABLE TO IMMEDIATELY REGAIN CONTROL. TYPICALLY THE TRUCK CAN BE PUT INTO PARK THEN TURNED BACK ON BUT NOT IN THIS CASE. THE LATEST STALL OF THE ENGINE OCCURRED ON FEBRUARY 9, 2011 WHILE MAKING A TURN IN A GROCERY STORE PARKING LOT. THE VEHICLE WAS TOWED TO A DEALER ON JANUARY 23, 2011 AND THE DEALER INDICATED THAT THE COULD NOT DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM AND THE COMPUTER READING DID NOT SHOW FAULTY EQUIPMENT. IN ADDITION, I AM EXPERIENCE A PROBLEM WITH THE FUEL GAUGE. EVEN AFTER COMPLETELY FILLING UP THE VEHICLE, THE GAUGE DOES NOT READ AS FULL. THERE ARE FUNCTIONAL PROBLEMS WITH THIS VEHICLE. AS A MOTHER WITH TWO CHILDREN WHO IS THE PRIMARY DRIVER OF THE VEHICLE, I AM TERRIFIED OF THE POTENTIAL FOR A FATAL ACCIDENT TO OCCUR. THERE ARE NUMEROUS WEB PAGE/BLOGS WHERE DRIVERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY HAVE DESCRIBED THESE SAME ISSUES. FORD NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING.
