the owners manual state that you may transfer to 4x4 up to 55 miles an hour before damage occurs, i was traveling at 30 miles per hour and the front drvier hub made a cluncking sound. i asked every ford dealer about my situation and they said that that it's ridiculous to engage 4 wheel drive while moving at any speed period! and that the transfer should be made at stand still. so now i'm not really sure which way to do it. all that i'm sure of, is that $300.00 expense for a new hub.

i bought the car with 0 miles on it. i heard loud squeaky noise in the brakes at any speed when slowing down. the first week, i took the car back to ford. ford sent me home telling me it was dust in the drums. they said it should wear off in a while. 1 month later and the noise still was present not better or worse. i took it in again, they had the nerve to tell me to just wait longer. 3 months and the noise continued. i then took it back and they put new brake pads. i had the car for 3 months and the brake pad were bad??? they put new brake pads on, and again the noise remained. will they ever fix this problem??? it is now 1 year after and the noise remains. don't buy a focus, even brand new and 100,000 mile warranty and still have problems no one will fix.*ak

tie rods (steering) went bad on my 2003 mustang (it has 37,000 miles), and convertible bezel came loose. vin#[xxx]. parts were replaced at the cost of $236.00, however i feel this should be a manufacturer responsibility, and not consumer. also, my 1988 ford f350 had a steering problem that was corrected under recall in 1988, however, recall didn't hold, and last year i had to spend $800 correcting problem a second time. i also believe this should be covered by manufacture. my 2004 expedition had it's recall done (for cruise control). years ago a new ford of mine caught on fire. why do fords seem to have constant problems with steering and/or fuel? *jb updated 07/17/2012 *js information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6)

ford issued a safety improvement campaign, campaign number: 03v482000, in november 2003, which stated that contamination of the filter in the fuel delivery module would eventually lead to blockage of the system. the replaced the fdm in my car in 2004 because my car was experiencing all the symptoms of the advisory. however, 2 years later, i am experiencing the same problems because the fix did not work. the filter once again became contaminated and the fuel pump once again needs to be replaced. i spoke to a customer service rep at ford and although he was very understanding, the fact is the advisory was not a recall and they took care of the fdm. i am not sure what else can be done at this point because, this first recurrence happened while trying to merge onto 60+ mph traffic and my care refused to accelerate beyond 30 mph. if ford says that the problem is fixed, then a repeat of the problem should not occur two years later. *jb
