UNKNOWN OR OTHER

5/21/2015 - NORFOLK, VA
I BOUGHT THIS CAR IN 2012 AND HAVE SINCE NOTICED THE VEHICLE LOSING THE ABILITY TO ACCELERATE. NO MATTER HOW FAR I PUSH DOWN ON THE GAS IT WILL NOT ACCELERATE. AFTER A MINUTE OR TWO OF STALLING, IT WILL SPUTTER AND SHUT OFF. I TOOK IT TO THE AUTO SHOP TO MAKE SURE THAT IT WAS NOT MISFIRING A PISTON, OR THAT THEIR WAS ANYTHING IMMEDIATELY WRONG, BUT THEY COULD NOT GIVE ME AN ANSWER TO WHY IT WOULD NOT ACCELERATE. MY TRANSMISSION ALSO STALLS IN GEARS AND WILL NOT SHIFT WHEN DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD. SAME DEAL TOOK IT IN AND RECEIVED NO ANSWER. THE BACK HATCH GLASS ALSO LEAKS TERRIBLY WHEN IT RAINS AND I CANNOT GET IT TO SEAL AT ALL.

FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

5/14/2015 - FRIENDSWOOD, TX
I HAVE HAD THIS VEHICLE FOR ONE YEAR, AND IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE TO RECOUNT ALL OF THE TIMES IT HAS STALLED ON ME WHILE DRIVING IT. IT HAS STALLED IN PARKING LOTS, IN HEAVY STOP-AND-GO TRAFFIC, MAKING TURNS, PULLING INTO MY DRIVEWAY, AND ACCELERATING TO ENTER THE FREEWAY. IT STARTED WITHIN TWO MONTHS OF PURCHASE. I TOOK IT TO A FORD DEALERSHIP IN AUGUST OF 2014 WHERE THEY PERFORMED RECALL WORK WHICH INCLUDED THROTTLE BODY REPLACEMENT, REPROGRAMMED THE PCM, AND A POWER STEERING ADVISORY ITEM. THE VEHICLE CONTINUED TO STALL. THE STALLING SEEMS TO HAPPEN JUST AFTER FILL-UP AND HAPPENS INTERMITTENTLY UNTIL THE GAS GAUGE READS LESS THAN THREE-FOURTHS AND AT LOW SPEEDS. I FILLED IT UP YESTERDAY, AND IT HAS STALLED SEVEN TIMES SINCE THEN. IT HAPPENS WHEN COASTING TO A STOP OR MAKING A TURN. ON THE FREEWAY AT HIGH SPEEDS, IT RUNS WELL. THE ISSUE WAS COMPOUNDED IN FEBRUARY WHEN IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT THE EVAP CANISTER WAS FULL OF GAS. IT, ALONG WITH A TUBE HOSE ASSEMBLY (BL8Z9D667B-AF), WAS REPLACED ONLY FOR IT TO HAPPEN AGAIN. THE PURGE VALVE WAS STUCK OPEN AND HAD TO BE REPLACED ALONG WITH A SECOND EVAP CANISTER. THE STALLING ISSUE CONTINUED, AND THE DEALERSHIP FOUND THE CANISTER TO BE SATURATED WITH GAS AGAIN. THIS TIME, THEY SAID THEY WOULD HAVE TO REPLACE THE GAS TANK TO CORRECT THE ISSUE AS THEY BELIEVE IT IS A VALVE BUILT INTO THE TANK WHICH SEEMS ABSURD. I HAVE NOT DONE THIS SINCE THEY QUOTED A COST OF OVER $2000. EVEN IF I HAVE THAT DONE, IT WILL ONLY CORRECT THE CANISTER ISSUE, NOT THE STALLING. I HAVE READ HUNDREDS OF POSTS ON THE INTERNET FROM PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE EXACT SAME PROBLEMS WITH THE SAME MODEL YEAR AS I HAVE. THESE ARE BOTH ISSUES THAT I BELIEVE TO BE THE RESULT OF A DEFECT IN THE MANUFACTURING OF THIS VEHICLE DUE TO THE VOLUME OF OWNERS WHO ARE EXPERIENCING THE SAME PROBLEMS. I FEEL FORD NEEDS TO STEP UP AND CORRECT THESE ISSUES.
