2004 Ford E-350 Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 122007


  • 100,699 miles


I have a Ford E-350 Super Duty van that has had drivable problems since it was new. After many trips to dealerships I was told that there was no fix at this time and Ford should come out with a fix in the future. The engine dies when hot at times causing hard braking and loss of steering. At 100699 miles, just 699 miles out of warranty the engine quite running when hot. If it sits for 6 or more hours it will restart and run for only 20 minutes. Ford told me it was no longer under warranty and would provide no assistance.

2004 Ford wagon E350 with floor lowered by vantage mobility int. For handicap people. During stop and go driving like traffic jams while pulling a trailer the floor between front seats gets more than hot enough to burn your foot. Sliding door opener has broken 6 times leaving the door free to slide open and shut. I keep a bungy cord to tie it up but interior lights come on and off when using bungy cord. The original latch by Ford was removed to install the door opener. Split drive shaft installed to make room for under vehicle lift by braun Corp has a low roar to it. Bicycle type chain for the sliding door opener at wheelchair lift drags across part of door jamb.(no pulley or sprocket). Paid $48,000 for this new 2004 model in April, 2005 I'm asking for my money back. Please help us.
