Ford Escape 2001

Safety incident date:
Jan 02, 2003
Location:
Port Washington, NY

vehicle engine revs/searches/hunts, while driving steady and maintaining a constant speed on a level road, going down or up a hill and the accelerator is not being played with. intermittently vehicle handling seems to lose the power assist - turning all of the sudden requires more muscle effort - and handling gets very stiff. suv has stalled 5 times already and dealer still unable to correct the problem. every time - i lost the steering, the brakes, the accelerator and the electrical systems. escape is a very scary and dangerous suv - unable to predict when it will stall or when it will suddenly accelerate (i don't dare use the cruise control).

Ford Expedition 1997
Ford Motor Company
Safety incident date:
Feb 07, 2004
Location:
Magna, UT

i have owened a 1997 ford expedition for 1 year. in this time i have had the same problem twice. the spark plugs come loose from the piston head and are blown out and damage the coil pack. there is then un-burnt fuel coming from the piston chamber and the spark plug is still firing with the possiblity of a fire. the dealership has told me that this is a known and addressed issue by ford motor company, but ford will only pay for repairs upto 75,000 miles. this last time this happened it damaged the head and will require major repairs. i am mostly concerned with the fire saftey and believe that this should be a manditory recall.*ak

Ford F-150 2004
Ford Motor Company
Safety incident date:
Sept 12, 2004
Location:
Sumter, SC

i purchased this vehicle aug. 31,2004. at approximately 700 miles the vehicle was returned to the dealer for vibration in the steering wheel and tires. after multiple attempts to repair the problem no solution has been found. i have been informed by the dealer that ford is aware of this problem and is working on it but at this the vehicle can not be repaired. the engine has a rough idle when hot, or sitting at a stop light, this roughness transfers to the transmission when driving. the dealer states ford will not allow repairs to be made for this problem at this time. i am very dissatisfied with this product and the manufacturers response.*ak

car intermittently stalls on acceleration (approx 17 times) has stalled on highway at 60mph,will not restart for approx 15-60 minutes after stall. car is covered under ford extended warranty purchased at time of sale. car was taken back to orig dealer mullinax ford east twice, both times advised was repaired but car stalled w/i days/hours of repair. car was towed to john lance ford 11-15-04who cant find any problems though it had to be pushed into service garage.we advised service manager car is unsafe to drive and danger to ourselves & others and requestd they continue to search for problem, they advised us they will call police if we do not return their (warrenty covered) loaner car and pick up the unrepaired car immediately. loaner car was returned immediately & now renting a car at my expense because xz2 is unsafe unreliable. spoke with attorney who advised he receives many complaints about 2002 ford escort zx2 & stalling problems but untill someone gets hurt or dies nothing will be done by ford. my numerous contacts w/ford service mgr's in attempts to resolve issue have been fruitless i have recieved no satisfaction from origional dealer or the second ford dealer service dept who forced us to pick up an unrepaired car which is unexcusable if not criminal. it is not a question of, if car stalls again while driving, but when. we recd no proof of work attempted to resolve problem provided it appears superficial work was done.*ak

this will be the third time advising nhtsa and ford concerning the same problems stated before.those are the the rear end shuddering upon acceleration,the whining noise from the rear end, the automatic transmission slippage, the whining noise from the power steering unit and last but not least the brakes constant squealing.i have gone to three different ford service centers in three differeent states.ny,nj,nc.of all the dealerships svc centers mahwah ford in nj spent the most time investigating these problems.shultz ford ny and cella ford nc forget them (no help what so ever just a bunch of lame people with lame excuses)total visits 6 and nothing has been replaced even upon my insistance. i owned a 1998 f-150(best truck to date) i'm sorry that i traded it in for this 2004 bucket of bolts. *ak

Ford Motor Company
Safety incident date:

Location:
Maybee, MI

we have replace 4 crank trigger sensors on our 2001 f350 super duty since we got it. yesterday i was driving the truck at 70 miles an hour on the freeway when it started to shake. i thought i had a flat so i lifted and got over to pull off the freeway, but the truck kept shaking and the speed was dropping fast. i turned on the emergency flashers and could do nothing except try to get it off the freeway. it stalled so i pulled off. it would not restart. after about 20 minutes in 16 degree temperatures i tried to restart. it did restart and i got up a ramp but the truck was chugging all the way and would not go above 15 miles per hour. this truck has quit in the worst places with no warning that the crank trigger sensor was going out. this is not the first time i have been not only stranded but in a dangerous place. this truck has not been abused and has had maintenance done regularly. ford and international harvester (maker of the part that dies) says that they have not heard of any others like this. but we have a lot of friends who drive the same truck and just about all of them have had this problem. we all carry spare crank trigger sensors and 10 mm sockets and drives to fix the problem when it happens. it is really an issue when you have to carry spare parts with you because you never know when it will go out. the part was in the truck less than 200 miles when it went. we replace the same part during christmas and we don't drive the truck every day. *jb

1) 2001 windstar minivan stalled at low idle while making a turn. 2) driver nearly wrecked due to loss of power. vehicle stalled several more times while moving before repair was done. 3) dealer diagnosed problem as bad fuel intake gaskets which were replaced. problem persisted until iac valve was cleaned. my conclusion is that the iac valve is to blamed, and could cause accidents due to loss of power while driving.*ak
