STEERING

5/26/2016 - LOS ANGELES, CA
I HAVE TWO MAJOR PROBLEMS AND SAFETY ISSUES WITH THIS CAR. FIRST IS THE POWER BOOSTER, WHICH IS COVERED UNDER EXTENDED WARRANTY. SYMPTOMS OF BOOSTER ISSUE ARE SPONGY BRAKES THAT THEN WENT HARD WITH LITTLE RESISTANCE ACCOMPANIED BY HISSING SOUND COMING FROM BRAKES. THE SECOND ISSUE IS A DEFECTIVE THROTTLE BODY. THREE TIMES IN AS MANY DAYS WHEN FOOD IS ON BRAKE, THE BRAKE PUSHES BACK ESSENTIALLY HAVING LOST POWER BRAKES AND REQUIRING BOTH FEET FIRMLY PRESSED ON BRAKE TO EVEN REMOTELY SLOW CAR DOWN, UNABLE TO COMPLETELY STOP VEHICLE, AT THE SAME TIME I LOSE POWER STEERING AND CANNOT CONTROL DIRECTION OF CAR, THE WARNING LIGHT "LOW OIL PRESSURE" ILLUMINATES ON THE DASH. THIS DOES NOT SEND CAR INTO SO CALLED "LIMP HOME" MODE IT RENDERS THE CAR ESSENTIALLY INOPERABLE. IF I TURN THE CAR OFF AND THEN BACK ON AGAIN IT RETURNS TO NORMAL DRIVING FUNCTION....UNTIL IT HAPPENS AGAIN. I'VE BEEN LUCKY THAT THIS HAPPENED BACKING OUT OF MY DRIVEWAY AND IN STRAIGHT LANE STOP AND GO TRAFFIC ON CITY STREETS. HAD THIS HAPPENED WHEN I WAS DRIVING ALONG A CURVY MOUNTAIN ROAD, ALONG THE COAST OR ON A LOS ANGELES FREEWAY MOVING 65 MPH..I DOUBT I WOULD HAVE BEEN SO LUCKY. I CANNOT BELIEVE THE THROTTLE ISSUE IN THE EDGE IS NOT COVERED UNDER THE EXTENDED WARRANTY GIVEN TO OTHER FORD MODEL CARS OR EVEN MORE THAT THIS ISN'T A SWEEPING SAFETY RECALL. I AM RISKING LIFE AND LIMB OF MYSELF AND MY TWO YOUNG CHILDREN DRIVING THIS CAR. THIS IS MY FIRST FORD AND WILL PROBABLY BE MY LAST. FORD SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES.

DOOR AJAR LIGHT STAYS ON EVEN WHEN DOOR IS CLOSED. THIS KEEPS DOME LIGHTS ON AND SIDE MIRROR LIGHTS ALONG WITH THE DOORS NOT LOCKING WHICH IS A SECURE/SAFETY ISSUE. ALSO THE FACT THAT THE DOME LIGHT CAN BLIND THE DRIVER AT NIGHT AND THIS RUNS THE BATTERY DOWN. FORD DEALERSHIPS SAY ITS A KNOWN DEFECT FOR NEW AND USED VEHICLES AND I OPENED UP A CASE WITH FORD AND THEY REFUSE TO OFFSET THE COSTS TO FIX IT. THEY JUST SAY KEEP YOUR RECEIPT IN CASE THEY EVER DO A RECALL. THERE IS A PETITION ON LINE BECAUSE IT AFFECTS SO MANY PEOPLE. FORD NEEDS TO ADDRESS THIS TO AVOID LAWSUITS! ITS A BURDEN TO CONSUMERS BECAUSE THE COST TO FIX IS OVER $500 AT A DEALERSHIP. THIS HAPPENS WHEN STATIONARY AND IN MOTION. MY WIFE AND BABY ALMOST RAN OFF THE ROAD BECAUSE THE LIGHT WON'T GO OFF AT NIGHT AND BLINDS HER VIEW. PLUS IT HAS LEFT HER STRANDED AT WORK WITH A DEAD BATTERY. SEE LINK FOR DETAILS.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

5/24/2016 - SYRACUSE, NY
DOOR AJAR WARNING KEEPS COMING ON WHEN THE DOOR IS FULLY SHUT. WHEN IT IS SHOWING, THE CAR IS UNABLE TO LOCK THE DOORS AS THE CAR IS MOVING AND THE LIGHTS STAY ON MAKING IT VERY DIFFICULT TO DRIVE AT NIGHT. NOT HAVING THE DOORS LOCK IS A MAJOR SAFETY ISSUE AS WE HAVE YOUNG CHILDREN THAT RIDE IN THE CAR. ALSO, IT ALLOWS OTHERS TO OPEN THE DOORS UNEXPECTEDLY. FORD SHOULD STAND UP AND FIX THE SAFETY ISSUE. BEYOND THE SAFETY ISSUE THE BATTERY IS BEING DRAINED AS THE LIGHTS STAY ON AND WE DON'T NOTICE IT UNTIL WE GO TO USE THE CAR AGAIN.

THE DOOR LATCH SEEMS TO BE A COMMON PROBLEM WITH FORD VEHICLES AND TO DATE HAVENT BEEN RECALLED. MY VEHICLE KEEPS SHOWING THE DOOR IS AJAR NO MATTER HOW GENTLE OR HARD I CLOSE THE DOOR. THIS CAUSES PROBLEMS LIKE THE INTERIOR LIGHT NOT SHUTTING OFF WHICH IS A SAFETY HAZARD DURING NIGHTTIME. THIS ALSO DRAINS THE VEHICLE BATTERY. THE DOOR WON'T LOCK WHICH IS ANOTHER SAFETY ISSUE AS ANYONE CAN OPEN.

VEHICLE LOST POWER AND WOULD NOT ACCELERATE WHEN GAS PEDAL WAS PRESSED BUT IT NEVER SHUT DOWN. VEHICLE STALLED BUT THE AIR CONDITIONING, RADIO, WINDOWS ETC CONTINUED TO WORK. VEHICLE'S ENGINE STAYED ON AND CONTINUED TO SPUTTER AND THE "YELLOW WRENCH" ENGINE WARNING LIGHT CAME ON. THE VEHICLE WAS IN A STRAIGHT FORWARD MOTION, MOVING LESS THAN 35 MPH, IN USE FOR LESS THAN 5 MINUTES, THE WEATHER WAS HOT AND THE ROADWAY WAS DRY. THE VEHICLE EVENTUALLY STOPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROADWAY PARTIALLY IN THE INTERSECTION. AFTER SOME RESEARCH, APPARENTLY THERE ARE OTHERS WHO HAVE HAD A SIMILAR EXPERIENCE RESULTING IN THE REPLACEMENT OF THE THROTTLE BODY ASSEMBLY.
