Painted Post, NY

my wife and i recently purchased a 2001 ford explorer sport trac from simmons rockwell, in big flats new york on february 28, 2004. upon signing paperwork, we were shown a form from ford motor company indicating that the vehicle mentioned was a repurchased vehicle. the form stated that the origional owner was complaining of the abs system not properly working. the sales representative and the ford form stated that the vehicle was repaired and was in satisfactory condition. a couple of weeks later i experienced a problem with the abs system not working and a light on the dash indicating that there was a problem. i contacted the dealer the next day and i was told that they could not help me that i would have to contact a ford dealer. i contacted mcguire ford in ithaca new york and they ran a repair history on this vehicle, which showed numerous attempts to repair the abs system. mcguire ford stated that they had to order parts for the abs system. a week later mcguire ford replaced parts for the abs system. a few days later i had troubles with the abs system again and contacted simmons rockwell ford in hornell new york. i dropped the vehicle off for repairs on 4/1/04 and picked it up 0n 4/2/04. on 4/2/04 i experienced problems with the brake system again. i contacted simmons rockwell hornell service department and asked them if it was alright if i used any ford dealership for repairs as they were 45 miles away from my home. they indicated yes that any ford dealer would honor the warranty,so i went to my local ford dealer. this dealer refused to do repairs due to the extensive history of problems with this vehicle and past problems with simmons rockwell. this vehicle has less than 29,000 miles on it and i have not owned the vehicle for a month and i had to have unsuccessful repairs made. the first payment is due on 4/13/04. i dropped the vehicle off to simmons rockwell on 4/5/04 and told the sales rep mike giagios that i did not want the vehicle. *ak

i have a 2001 ford escape. abs sensores got mud in them failed and burnt out. i have replaced 4 abs sensorse in 5 month period. i was told because of mud getting in them. dealer ship and ford customoer service tell me to wash sensors off when ever i drive through the mud. i live on a dirt road. so i would half to crawl under the car and wash all sensorse every day. i get in my car in the morning to take the kids to the school bus half way there the abs warning light goes on. when i get home if i crawl under the car and wash out sensores the light will go off. then later in the day when i go to pick up the kids the same thing happens. if i wash the sensores everytime i go through the mud abs breaks will work untill i get mud in them. if i dont wash mud out of sensores eventually they will burn out. the ford dealership and ford customer service said this is normal maintanace. i cant believe they would consider that normal. i have spent most of the time i have owned this suv driving it with out abs breaks. i think they should fix this design problem, before i get into an acident with out the use of my abs brakes. i want problem fixed before i have an accident with no abs brakes. they blame the problem on me for not keeping it clean. i cant wash it everytime i use it and i shouldn't half to if they would redesign it.*ak

my abs light has been on continuously for many years. a search of the internet allowed me to find many others who have the same issue with the ford contour. it appears to not be specific to any one model year. my vehicle is a 1995, but i have seen internet queries for many other newer vehicles. what is in common is that the abs system on the ford contour is faulty causing one to have to spend $4,000 to get it repaired, or drive with less affective brakes. have you received any other queries about the ford contour abs failure?*ak

2002 ford explorer 1. abs sensor light came on in march 2003. took car to ford dealership and they replaced it. abs light went out for a short time. then, aug, 2003, abs light came on again. took into a dealership, they replaced the sensor. abs light went out. but it came back on again soon afterward. in the meantime, my warranty expires. 2. failure to adequately diagnose this problem in the first place has lead to a bad rear hub assembly. now i have a repair outside my warranty that should have been taken care of in the first place. 3. ford refuses to acknowledge responsibility for their faulty problem. they require that i pay for a diagnosis to find out what the problem is. being that this is related to something that they have a history on during my warranty period, they should be responsible for the repairs and costs. *ak

i have a 1999 ford taurus i have the anti-break system (abs). i have had the car for 5 years and never made any noise until the past week. i brought it into ford garage and they said it is common and don't worry. while driving i feel pulsation and vibration while breaking. when i do go speed above 10mph it stops. if i stop and turn the engine off and start again it again vibrates and pulsates. it it scary because you feel there is something wrong. they tell me it is common and in the manual. if it did this when i bought the car or anyone this model i don't think they would of sold a car. i feel ford should take care of this problem. they are aware of it.

because the abs light comes on during long drives and remains on until we stop the vehicle, our explorer has been in the shop on 3 times in 3 states. we⿿ve been told that we shouldn⿿t worry if the light goes off after stopping. a ⿿grinding⿝ noise checked in colorado for 3 days last year wasn⿿t a problem until our rear differential suddenly went "out," in ohio. in illinois, the abs light came on and stayed on for the first time. we went to the closest ford dealership, and since it didn⿿t remain lit, we were told to get it repaired in iowa, since it wasn't "major." the abs rear sensor was replaced. the mechanic said that explorers with differential replacement were having sensor problems. when the differential was replaced in ohio, the service rep mentioned a "kit" to replace the differential. both garages seemed conversant with the abs sensor and differential problems. the suv has been maintained at ford dealerships to ensure systems serviced by mechanics and technicians well versed in ford products. the abs sensor light problem recurred in may after a 200 mile road trip, going off after we stopped. my brakes failed when i tried to stop while traveling between 5-10 mph,about 550+ miles into an extended road trip. no citation was issued as the sheriff's deputy said there were no skid marks on the pavement to indicate that i had "jammed" on the brakes. i had pressed the brake pedal to the floor and had no brakes when i hit the back of a penske moving truck. the abs brakes and "auxiliary" brakes failed on the vehicle, with over $11,000 worth of damage to the front end of the vehicle, even at a low rate of speed, which seems to be a pattern of problems with the abs. the air bag didn⿿t deploy. i reported this to ford's customer care center on 7/18/2005, got a reference number, and was told i would hear from the consumer advisory group within 3 business days, haven⿿t heard from them, yet.

purchased 2000 ford focus, vin [xxx] from croft ford on dec. 19, 2001; mileage was 12,163 (car was still under warranty); have been unable to walk since march of 2002 (mileage on car is now just over 13,000; last 200 plus miles has been put on by ford dealerships attempting to fix car). have had this car in to several ford dealerships; none of which can solve problem of engine surges; dash lights sweeping; transmission bolting; etc., etc., etc. this car is not safe to drive; i have notified ford motor company; the dealerships, etc., and feel that it should be covered under "manufacturer warranty" .. instead latest was that ford dealership wanted $500 to replace alternator and could not guaranty that would fix problem; i already paid $105; plus $110 and the same problems are happening. the car has been at the ford dealership in woodbridge, va, for over 2 weeks, which leaves my family without a car to transport me. this is not right. i told todd croft of croft ford that i needed a good, dependable, safe car because this would be the last car i ever purchased. he knew that i did not drive much at all and i feel that he sold the car (with an existing problem) to me thinking that i would never know. my daughter was the one who realized this car had a serious defect and took it to croft ford to be fixed several months ago; to date, it still is not fixed; is a danger to drive, not only to the person/occupants of the car, but to any vehicles near when the power surges occur and the transmission bolts. *jb updated 07/18/2012 *js information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6)

my 2002 explorer is also having the same problems which have been previously noted by other explorer owners. the whining when reaching 50-60 km/hr, which goes away when you take your foot off the gas, the slipping and shuddering of gears and sometimes passing gear never kicks in, the abs light comes on (usually after the truck has warmed up and it doesn't seem to happen when the weather is really cold), the abs is now starting to act up, wherein it randomly activates itself even while on dry pavement and the brakes feel mushy when this happens. now the locks are randomly not working. i would like to share one instance about the passing, shuddering, slipping was when i was traveling on the highway with my kids, i pulled out to pass, and when i stepped on it the truck shuddered so hard, that my daughter, who was coloring a mother' day card, actually scribbled when it shuddered, if that makes any sense. she was po'd at me asking me why did i do that and now her card was ruined. we have had the transmission in for service and were told nothing was wrong. we had the transmission fluid changed and the truck worked fine for about 2 weeks and then back to the same old problems. my husband and i are seriously considering trading this piece of crap vehicle off and we have decided that it will only be imports from now on. ford needs to wake up and start fixing all of these problems or they will be finding themselves bankrupt in no time. i was brought up as a kid in fords; 67 t-bird, ford ltd, 1/2 ton truck, 3/4 ton truck, 78 ford t-bird, ford taurus, my first car being a mercury lynx, then a 93 ford festiva, hubby owned a 93 ford ranger 4x4, 98 windstar, my mom owns a 96 explorer and so on. my friend just got rid of her 2000 explorer which she lovingly named her 'ford exploder'. thanks for listening to my rant and i really hope that with everyone's input that something can be done about this. *nm
