ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

2/6/2018 - CARENCRO, LA
IT STARTED AT ON TIME WHEN GOING TO EXIT THE STATIONARY CAR, I COULD NOT EXIT THE CAR BECAUSE THE LOCK WOULD NOT UNLATCH, YOU COULD NOT OPEN THE DRIVER OR PASSENGER DOORS FROM INSIDE OUR OUTSIDE. NOW IT HAS MOVED ON TO ALL THE DOORS, SOMETIMES THEY WORK AND OPEN SOMETIMES THEY DON'T. I HAVE REPLACED THE DRIVER DOOR HANDLE 3 TIMES ALREADY FOR THE SAME ISSUE EACH TIME, IN THE HANDLE LATCH ITSELF THERE IS A LITTLE PLASTIC PIECE THAT KEEPS BREAKING INSIDE THE HANDLE NOT ALLOWING THE HANDLE TO PULL OPEN THE DOOR. AND NOW THE LAST ISSUE WHEN TAKING OFF THE LOCKS AUTOMATICALLY LOCK AFTER A COUPLE OF SECONDS WHEN DRIVING SOMETIMES THEY LOCK SOMETIMES THEY DON'T. I CAN NO LONGER LOCK MY CAR WHEN LEAVING IT BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW IF AND WHEN THE LOCKS WILL OPEN AS WELL AS WHICH DOOR WILL CHOOSE TO REMAIN CLOSED AND NOT OPEN....I HAVE HAD TO GO IN THROUGH THE TRUNK SEVERAL TIMES QUIET EMBARRASSING. I HAVE BROUGHT IT TO MY LOCAL FORD COMPANY SEVERAL TIMES FOR THEM TO FIX THE ISSUE, THEY TELL ME IT IS MY PROBLEM NOT A MANUFACTURES DEFECT..ONE DOOR YES I COULD UNDERSTAND ALL FOUR DOORS NO THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE SYSTEM. I BELIEVE THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE BECAUSE I CAN NOT ALWAYS GET MY CHILD OUT OF THE BACK SEAT BECAUSE THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT THE DOOR WILL OPEN PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS I HAVE DEALT WITH IT LONG ENOUGH AND CAN NO LONGER CONTINUE TO WORRY ABOUT MY CHILD'S SAFETY, MY SAFETY OR THE LACK THERE OF PROTECTION OF NOT BEING ABLE TO LOCK MY OWN CAR WITHOUT KNOWING IF I CAN GET BACK IN LET ALONE SOMEONE ELSE GETTING IN. THIS HAS DATED BACK TO WHEN MY ORIGINAL WARRANTY FELL OFF.

MY 2010 FORD FOCUS SES DOOR SYSTEM ISN'T WORKING OUT OF NO WHERE. SOMETIMES MY DOOR LOCKS WON'T LOCK, SOMETIMES THEY WON'T UNTIL TO THE POINT I CAN GET OUT OF MY CAR. THE OWNER BEFORE ALSO HAD THIS PROBLEM AND GOT THEM FIXED. NOW MY REAR DOOR WON'T OPEN AT ALL. A COUPLE PEOPLE I'VE TALKED TO THEY REPORT SIMILAR THINGS. THIS A HUGE SAFETY PROBLEM.. I HAVE A FOUR YEAR OLD IS SCARY KNOWING SOMETHING COULD HAPPENED I MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO GET HER OUT BECAUSE OF THIS DOOR ISSUES. SINCE IT'S ALREADY BEEN FIXED, I'M NERVOUS TO FIX IT ALSO AND IT GOES BACK TO THIS.

10/11/2017 - GLENS FALLS, NY
VEHICLE STALLED. TRIED TO RESTART IT, WOULD NOT FIRE UP. IT THEN CAUGHT ON FIRE ON THE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY (I-87N, EXIT 17/MOREAU) VEHICLE WAS IN GOOD WORKING ORDER, NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT OR OTHER INDICATION OF TROUBLE, TEMPERATURE GAUGE NEVER SHOWED ANY PROBLEM. NOT SURE IF THIS IS RELATED TO OTHER FORD ENGINE FIRES (DUE TO OVERHEATING/LOSS OF COOLANT) OR WHAT EXACTLY CAUSED IT. INSURANCE DID NOT DO AN INSPECTION (I OWNED THE CAR OUTRIGHT AND ONLY HAD LIABILITY COVERAGE) AND FORD TOTALLY BLEW ME OFF. HAVE PICTURES, BUT THEY LOOK LIKE ANY OTHER CAR WITH AN ENGINE FIRE.
