Ac air blows cold when you are doing 60 mph on the highway... around town it is hot!!! dealer recharged the system, but still have the same problem. Now being told it is the compressor. So many people are having the same problem with the A/C in Ford Five hundreds. This really needs to be looked into please!

I own a 2006 Ford Five hundred. This past week I had an issue with my car lunging forward while stopped at traffic lights and also while backing up. My husband was parking the vehicle at a restaurant and while the brake was engaged the car lunged forward and hit the curb. Luckily the vehicle came to a stop once it hit the curb. What if the curb was not there but, a person was. We left the restaurant and we were at a stop light. My husband said he felt the car was going to take off. When we got home safely ( thank god ) we went online to investigate. It seems as though we are not the only one with this problem. The Ford freestyle has many complaints and the Mercury montego as well as the Five hundred have complaints as well. It seems to be a problem with the throttle body. My husband called the dealership and got the part for about $560. Luckily my neighbor is a mechanic and will be putting the part in for us. This will hopefully correct the problem if not, I be filing another complaint. Please document this problem and hopefully in the future something will be done about it before someone get seriously injured or even killed !

The contact owns a 2006 Ford Five hundred. On June 21, 2009, the contact depressed the brake pedal, but the vehicle lunged forward. The vehicle was taken to the dealer the following day. The contact was informed that the air flow sensor, tp sensor, and throttle body were the reasons for the failure. The vehicle's warranty only covered the air flow sensor. The contact feels that the other two components should also be covered and that this was a safety defect that needs correcting. The failure mileage was 49,647.
