I HAVE OWNED THIS CAR SINCE JULY OF 2005 (3/10/06). MY BROTHER WENT TO USE THE CIGARETTE LIGHTER AND WHEN IT WAS DONE HEATING UP IT POPPED COMPLETELY OUT AND FELL UNDER THE PASSENGER SEAT AFTER BOUNCING OFF THE CENTER CONSOLE. THIS HAPPENS EVERY TIME THE CIGARETTE LIGHTER IS USED. I SEE ANOTHER COMPLAINT FOR THIS AND I TRULY BELIEVE THAT THIS IS A SAFETY HAZARD FOR TWO REASONS, 1 BEING THAT IT COULD EASILY CAUSE A FIRE IN THE CAR (ESPECIALLY IF THERE ARE PAPERS UNDER THE SEAT) WHICH ON TOP OF THAT COULD CAUSE A CRASH, AND 2 IF THE DRIVER WENT TO FIND THE LIGHTER SO IT DIDN'T CAUSE A FIRE NOT ONLY WOULD HE/SHE GET BURNED WHILE DRIVING BUT IT COULD ALSO CAUSE A CRASH WHICH ALMOST HAPPENED TO ME. AND JUST SO FORD KNOWS, I AM HOLDING THEM RESPONSIBLE FOR MY BURNED FINGER.
