i purchased a new 2003 ford mustang cobra on christmas eve 2002. around 2000 miles, i began to notice that the car was having problems with the drivability. i thought that it may be a little quirk that would work itself out during the break-in period. *ak needless to say, it hasn't. the first problem began with the engine running roughly. i took the vehicle in and had it inspected at 6,000 miles. the engine began stalling during deceleration and also had power cutting off during take off. this has been a daily occurrance since that time. the car now has 15,000 miles on it and has had several other problems. this recurring problem has had the car in the shop six different times with six failures to correct the problem. the car had the transmission replaced at 12,000 miles. the air conditioning is now cycling where it blows no cold air for short periods of time. the adhesive seal for the spoiler is coming loose and the rear bumper cover is warping as have previous mustangs i have owned. the drivability concern is a hazard to say the least. i have had no fewer than a dozen different occasions where i narrowly escaped a major collision due to the engine bogging down. the vehicle has been in ford's repair facility for more than 4 cummulative weeks for repairs. it is going back in again very soon. i went through ford's arbitration board which was an absolute joke and waste of my time. the board cited that "drivability concerns still exist, however ford has not been granted sufficient time to diagnose the problem". each time it has been in, i have said, i don't want the car back until it is corrected. ford also tries to claim that vehicle was only in for service three time according to the report, despite the fact that i have several work orders that say otherwise. i would like anyone who has had or still does have a similar issue to contact me. this car is a lemon, that ford does not want to correct.

i own a 2005 f350 power stroke diesel pickup and have been throughly discouraged by ford lack of admission to the engine problems. i have not been involved in an accident, however, i feel that the consumer needs to know the problems with the 6.0 litre powerstroke. i have heard many stories of consumer problems and yet ford denies the problems. i think that ford is trying to make a "silent recall" because a full recall will hurt them financially. please investigate as to the problems with this engine.*ak

i have a 2004 f-350 turbo diesel 6.0 l. truck. the truck surges when you drive it. it cuts out. it dies on the road when you are driving it. we have made several complaints to rich ford in edgewood and albuquerque. this is a very serious safety hazard. they have attempted to fix it four times. the last time i took it to rich ford in albuquerque was because i was waiting to pull out into traffic with my foot on the brake and the truck was surging forward into traffic. i was very scared as was my ten year old son. i had my foot pressed as hard as i could on the break and that was not stopping the truck from moving forward. i drove straight to the dealership, rich ford of albuquerque, and they told me that they could not service my vehicle that day. i would have to wait two weeks. i was scared to drive the truck home. i am afraid for my family's safety. this is a dangerous vehicle and ford is not willing to do anything about it. they have made several attempts to fix the problem but they can not "duplicate" the problem when they have it in their custody. this is a dangerous vehicle and should be taken off the road. this started about six months ago maybe longer. the last time i took it to the dealership where they turned me away was february 1, 2006. *nm

we have 3- 2003 f550 trucks, the first two trucks are always in the shop for repair to the engines, the first truck [xxx] has had two re-manufactured engines put in and the 2nd truck [xxx] has had patch jobs done to the motor. these trucks are work trucks and are on the highways five days a week or more, but the safety issues of these trucks is that the engine either freezes up or just quits and this has happened on a corner, intersection on a hill they are going down. at this time we have been lucky that there has been areas to pull off the side of the road and cars have able to swerve around us to avoid an accident. he had to back down with the traffic on the west bound side to get to an area that was out of the way. also he was lucky he was in an area where the west bound traffic could see him, if this would have been more of a curve there probably would have been an accident. someone is going to get killed, because there is no warning when these trucks will shut down, because of motor problems. the motor have had intercooler problems, injectors replaced, motor shutting down, etc.. the ford motor company is well aware of this problem because we have read in other papers of similar incidents, it looks at this time that ford is trying to patch the trucks together instead of putting in a new motor and style, in which is not having these problems. we have also filed a previous complaint with ford motor company the first time the oil coolers went out and the injectors, then again today when the motor quit again in traffic in the mountain areas, this was motor shut down for no reason. there a lot of dangerous curves and hills, some are which 6% to 10% grades that a semi or larger would not be able to stop as quickly as a passenger car or smaller vehicle! *jb updated 07/16/2012 *js information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6)

i have owned the truck for approx. 9 months, (third owner). while towing my travel trailer or going uphill unloaded, the turbo will howl loudly and the truck will experience a significant power loss (cannot maintain adequate speed above 45 mph). also i average only 9 mpg city and 11.9 mpg highway unloaded weight. i have taken the truck to antelope valley ford as well as the previous owner and get the same response, "cannot duplicate. it seems as if ford has instructed their technicians to "cannot duplicate" all complaints in an effort to avoid fixing under warranty. *tr
