problem #5

E-350 8-cyl

  • 98,460 miles


Started the van to pull ahead about 5ft forward in my driveway. As I dropped it into drive the van took off like a bat out of [xxx]. smashing into my classic corvette pushing it threw the back wall of the garage and almost taking out two of my 2- year old grand children who where playing in the garage at the time. I pulled the van to the right of the garage crashing and burying the van about 8ft deep into the garage wall. Only by the grace of god did the corvette not hit the two grand kids as it sailed through the garage 26 ft and out the back wall. Thousands of dollars of damage to both vehicles and my garage, but thank god my grand kids were not hurt. Ford is putting profit before people by not fixing this problem immediately.

Apparently the advanced track system (stabilizes the van to prevent rollover) automatically performs tests. The problem is that it does it randomly and while I'm driving. When it is in test mode, I temporarily loose control of my brakes and steering!!!!! it seems more frequent in that it has done it twice in the past month, today being one of the times. I actually rear ended someone today because my brakes did not work!!!!!! I think the system is a good idea but the self testing causing loss of control is dangerous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! now I have a ticket, a record, 2 vehicles to repair and probably an increase in insurance! great van but this part sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is my second note to you about this, I have not heard from you concerning my first. Ford has been scamming people for over 10 years by using an oil pressure switch instead of a pressure transducer in all their vehicles (including my new 2006 E350). It does not indicate the amount of oil pressure (like all gauges do) only if there is pressure or not, basically the same as an idiot light. They tell us we are buying a vehicle with a gauge and it is not really one. I have 9 experts and mechanics that will testify on my behalf and dozens of letters from other individuals. I want Ford to repair or refit my vehicle with a true oil pressure gauge like the manual says, and also refit all others who they have scammed over the years telling them they have a gauge which indicates amount of pressure when they only gave us one that tells us if we have some or none. Thanks and I would like to hear back from you on this, it seems like a class action suit is appropriate.
