problem #3

Brakes squeak loudly when the weather is hot or after driving the car for 45 and returning to the car to drive after an hour or two of not driving. The brakes become touchy and bite when returning to drive after the car sits for an hour or so. When stopping suddenly at any time, the brakes bite severely. Pads have already been replaced within the first year. Helped but did not solve the problem. Brakes also feel as if they are grinding when returning to drive the car after it sits for an hour or so, after having drove for 45 minutes or so. At times the brakes will squeak and bite first thing in the morning. Dealer has replaced the pads, noted the biting, but the problem still exists.

While driving at 70 mph on a busy stretch of highway, the vehicle jerked slightly, a notification light (orange wrench) came on saying to check the owner's manual, and the accelerator ceased to function. I was able to navigate the car safely to the shoulder; however, the braking felt strained and there was no ability to throttle the engine at any point. Upon stopping another notification popped up saying that "hill assist unavailable". once stopped, I turned the engine off and let the car sit for a couple of minutes. The car restarted (albeit roughly), and I was able to drive home safely. The car is currently at the Ford dealer where the vehicle was purchased. No update has been provided. The only feedback we've gotten was that they may "find nothing". this is a very serious problem, and I do not believe the vehicle is safe to operate without identifying and repairing this issue.

5th stall 5/16/2016 turned left onto the I-90 on ramp, hit the gas and at ~40 mph the car shuddered and went into limp home mode. Pulled safely to the shoulder and ran the vehicle health report. The report shows issues with hill assist and safety restraints. (29,359)
