wiring harness insulation obviously cut during assembly. sharp metal edges on inside of liftgate and "d" pillar were the culprit. bare wires and cut wires were shorting to chassis ground. fire potential was serious. intermittant 3rd brake light, rear window defroster and hatch light were nuisance problems. other complainants on this sight had 3rd brake light melt down and fire... this could be a definite cause in the wagons and should be looked at closer in the sedans. also, i was reading the complaints on this car and, though it has been fairly reliable for me, i have experienced the uncontrolled throttle accelleration or sticking on 2 occasions. both times were during long trips and both times the symptoms would not disappear until after turning the ignition off and then back on. there is something to the other's complaints. lastly, the left rear seat belt will not return. i also noticed an alarming number complaints of seat belt failures on this vehicle. the seat belt return mechanism is a faulty design. the assembly can spread apart, allowing the return spring to loose it's tension. there really should be a safety recall or investigation on the seat belt assemblies in this vehicle. thanks.

this vehicle has been a lemon since i leased it and the ford motor company has done nothing to try and stop the problems. they have refused on all accounts to even right up a service complaint so there will be a record of the times i have taken it in for problems. this vehicle is dangerous, it should have been totally taken off the road years ago. the door lock in the rear goes up and down at random and it does it repeatly until i have to shut the car off because i,m afraid it will catch fire. the tires started wearing through when there was only 30,000. miles on them, and now it will not crank unless i hold the gear shift up past the p mark on the colum and i live on a flat paved road. the ford company said it was from parking on a hill. i live in south east ga, we have no hills.*ak( dot number: )

rear deck light assy bulbs are overheating/failing. sockets are melting down as is the module that holds the sockets. the trunk light is also out. this car also had the engine head gaskets fail. ford should be made accountable for all engine head gasket failures, not just 94 and later. is there data on the overheating/melting of the rear deck harness assy and is ford correcting the problem or the does the owner take it all?
