FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

10/26/2018 - ORLANDO, FL
FOR THE PAST FEW MONTHS I'VE BEEN TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT'S BEEN HAPPENING WITH MY VEHICLE. I HAVE A 2011 FORD FIESTA. IT IS A MANUAL. I'M NOT STALLING IT, BUT WHEN I'M DRIVING- WHETHER I'M STOPPED OR ACTUALLY MOVING (EVEN AT 45 + MPH) IT WILL COMPLETELY SHUT OFF. THE RPMS SOMETIMES FALL 2-300 BELOW RANDOMLY BUT WILL COME BACK AND KEEP GOING. HOWEVER, WHEN THEY FALL AND FOR WHATEVER REASON THE VEHICLE CAN'T FIGURE OUT THAT THE RPMS SHOULD BE HIGHER, IT SHUTS OFF COMPLETELY. WHEN IT ACTUALLY SHUTS OFF I HAVE NO WARNING. HERE IS THE LINK I FOUND ON INFORMATION ABOUT THE FORD FOCUS RECALLS: HTTPS://WWW.WFTV.COM/NEWS/NATIONAL-NEWS/AP-TOP-NEWS/FORD-RECALLS-NEARLY-15M-FOCUSES-BECAUSE-ENGINES-CAN-STALL/859721918 LUCKILY I HAVE A MANUAL AND I CAN SHIFT INTO NEUTRAL AND RESTART THE CAR EVEN WHEN I'M GOING DOWN CITY STREETS OR BUSY INTERSECTIONS. THIS IS AN INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS SITUATION, AND I'VE BEEN TRYING TO DIAGNOSE IT FOR MONTHS. IN A 10 MINUTE DRIVE THIS CAN HAPPEN AS MANY AS 3-4 TIMES. THERE'S NO LINK TO WHY IT HAPPENS SOMETIMES AND NOT OTHERS. SHIFTING INTO ANOTHER GEAR DOESN'T EFFECT IT. I HAVE NOTICED AFTER I GET FUEL IT TENDS TO HAPPEN MORE OFTEN, BUT I'M UNSURE IF THAT'S CORRELATION OR CAUSATION. SOMETIMES AFTER I GET FUEL I CAN'T EVEN GET BACK ONTO THE MAIN ROAD WITH OUT THE CAR DYING COMPLETELY. WHEN IT SHUTS OFF IT WILL ALMOST ALWAYS TURN BACK ON JUST FINE. I RECENTLY GOT MY BATTERY REPLACED THINKING THAT THAT WOULD HAVE POSSIBLY SOLVED THE ISSUE BUT IT HAS PERSISTED. OIL CHANGES/TUNE UPS DON'T FIX IT EITHER. I'M UNSURE OF WHAT THE EXACT ISSUE IS, BUT I DID SEE THAT FORD IS RECALLING THEIR FOCUS MODELS FROM 2012-2018 FOR AN ISSUE THAT SOUNDS EXACTLY WHAT I'M EXPERIENCING. I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO SEE THEM OPEN UP THEIR INVESTIGATION TO POSSIBLY INCLUDE FIESTA'S LIKE MINE BECAUSE IT SEEMS TO BE A RELATED ISSUE.

AIR BAGS

10/22/2018 - REISTERSTOWN, MD
I WAS IN AN ACCIDENT WITH MY 2011 FORD FIESTA AND I WAS HIT ON THE DRIVER SIDE OF THE BACK OF THE CAR. THE CAR SLAMMED INTO ME AND CAUSED MY CAR TO SPIN AND THEN THE CAR FLIPPED AND ROLLED. THE CAR LANDED UPRIGHT INTO A MUDDY, GRASSY FIELD. THE AIR-BAGS DID NOT OPEN UPON IMPACT. I WAS TRAVELING ON THE INTERSTATE GOING 60 MPH. THE CAR THAT HIT ME MUST HAVE BEEN GOING 85 MPH.

10/22/2018 - REISTERSTOWN, MD
I WAS IN A CAR ACCIDENT ON 10/13/2018. I WAS STRUCK ON THE DRIVERS SIDE, BACK OF MY 2011 FORD FIESTA. MY CAR SPUN AROUND AND FLIPPED AND ROLLED. DURING THIS TIME THE AIR BAGS DID NOT OPEN. I WAS TRAVELING ON THE INTERSTATE WHEN I WAS STRUCK GOING 60 -65 MPH. THE CAR THAT STRUCK ME WAS GOING MUCH FASTER, 80-85 MPH. I AM WONDERING WHY MY AIR BAGS DID NOT OPEN. ARE THERE ANY OTHER REPORTS LIKE MINE? MY CAR LANDED UPRIGHT IN A GRASSY MUDDY FIELD. I AM STILL BEING SEEN FOR MEDICAL TREATMENTS AND WAITING TO HEAR IF MY CAR IS A TOTAL LOSS OR REPAIRABLE.
