ford 1998 windstar power train failure. in jan 1999, i purchase a used 1998 ford windstar. also paid for a 72 month/60,000 premium care extended warranty. in 2000, the transmission failed almost causing and accident. i brought the vehicle back to the dealer and they replaced the transmission under warranty. after that i brought the vehicle back more than 5 times stating that the new replacement transmission was not working properly. the trans would slip coming out of first gear and bang into 2nd gear. also, when driving on a highway the car would stall when downshifting coming off an exit. the dealer, springfield ford, stated that they could not find a problem. on july 18, 2003 the transmission failed while i was driving. the vehicle just stopped and would not go into gear. as a disabled individual this was a major problem and almost caused an accident. with my flashers on, i was able to put the car into neutral, and drive off the road and safely pack it. this seemed strange that i was able to drive the vehicle in neutral. the vehicle was towed to springfield ford on july 18, 2003. the dealer called and said that my warranty had expired and it would cost $3000.00 to fix the transmission. i spoke with ford and the manager at springfield ford. they stated that my warranty expired in june of 2003. i believe that my warranty is in effect thru 2005. this vehicle has 47,000 miles on it. i believe that a defective transmission was installed in my vehicle. this has created a major safty issue for me and my family. as of today ford has not offered to fix my car, offer me a loaner car, or offer any resolution to this problem. as a disabled individual, this van is my main transportation and family car. i am still waiting for ford to offer to fix my car, describe the failure, and provide a solution. at this point i believe that the entire power train needs to be replaced with oem certified new parts installed and paid by ford motor co. thank you l *ph

we own a 2001 expedition the tires on this vehicle are the same tires recalled p275/60r17. i went to greenville to pick up my son on the way home i felt the vehicle shaking and did'nt know what was happening. i started slowing down and we hear a bang noise i pulled over into the emergency lane and checked my tires the back right side hade a large bare spot on the tire showing the separation and wires of the tire. my son who just had surgeryon his foot had to change the tire. no-one was hurt. i know the lord was truely looking out for us because from what i have heard people have been killed from these tires separating. i called ben satcher where we bought the vehicle from and the service manager said my particular vehicle didn't have the right serial number for the recalled tires and they won't do anything for us. i think if we were killed they'd have a bigger problem on their hands. but the purpose of writing this is to let you know i think more tires were effected than continental tires is considering. can someone please let me know what i should do next because i believe others will continue to have these type of problems and they just don't know how to get help either. i think there needs to be another investigation of these tires. i have seen the complaints posted and they seem to have been reported after the orginial recall has expired and we should not be penalized for this problem happening after your expiration date of helping people. if a tire is bad it's seems to me you should not be able to put a cap on that. *ak

my ford ranger is a very dangerous vehicle. it is built unstable/balanced, it vibrates and also shakes uncontrollably. it has almost taken my life twice! yes i drive at the speed limit, and tune my car up on a regular bases. the 2003-4 model have the same problems, but ironically the toyota tacoma has no problems at all that are related to these of the ford ranger. i have already contacted ford but no reply, i am also going to contact my congress person to present these issues and more with governed bodies to see if the federal transportation commission can be improved, another aspect to this hazardous cause of the ford might be that the u.s doesn't use european standards in automotive. you don't really see bmw, or other cars of a european decent with those problems. *jb

1- this specific failure, there were no events leading to it, it just happened. the ignition switch just locked. previously there were little events with the car leading up to its failure. 2- it stalled and wouldn't start, fuel wasn't getting to the engine and would lead to power failure. 3- after repeated trips to the garage and told there was nothing wrong with it. they did replace the plugs and wires and fuel pump again. now the problem is the ignition switch. *ak

prior to the accident we had the telescoping brake and gas pedal replaced for a defect. (it didn't work) on september 9th 2005 at approx 12:00pm our ford excursion suddenly accelerated, which resulted in loss of control of the vehicle at speeds in excess of 80 mph. avoided roll over and hitting other vehicles. spun out 2 times before crashing into a fence @ mcas (marine corps air station) yuma arizona. was taken to the hospital by ambulance. highway patrol. accident investigator and yuma police have pictures and reports of the acceleration pedal still mashed into the suv's floor-board still open at full throttle with engine off. the accident report states mechanical defect of acceleration pedal. the tires and under chassis caught were on fire when vehicle came to a crash stop or it could have been a fire prior the investigator wasn't sure. when the vehicle was put in park the tires were still spinning out as if the suv was in a drive gear. although i suffered minor injured pulled neck and back muscles and broken elbow (radial neck fracture). i could have been killed or seriously injured or killed another human due to this defect. completely terrified to ever drive again. *jb

this is the second time in less then two years i have had to have the transmission rebuilt. it was bought on 8/14/04 as is no warranty from a dealer (demo) unit it had 38547 miles on it, 10/13/04 the transmission blew with 41675 miles on it. the dealer wouldn't give me no help as well as ford customer service, i paid 2181.03 to have it rebuilt including the torque converter replaced, and the solenoid pak (which was replaced 2 more times shortly after being installed each time) it needed a ls kit, bas hing kit, 5 forward steels, filter and fluids. march 8th 2006 i find myself spending another 1412.56 to have it rebuilt yet again now only having 64460 miles on it, it needed an overhaul kit, filter and trans fluids, intermediate band, od servo piston, int servo piston and another solenoid pak as well as the transmission case repaired. i have owned several cars in my life time and never had to replace a transmission especially twice in less then two years, this is my first ford and will be the last ford i own! i can't afford to spend this much money every two years and shouldn't have to the way i see it!*jb
