  • 11,000 miles


Rear brake on drivers side squeaking, brake is dragging, causing the rotor and brake to overheat. This causes smoke and odor. Upon investigation it was difficult to remove the wheel and the brake calipers to check the brake pads. Vehicle has 27000 miles, one brake pad worn completely down it was opposite of the caliper brake piston. The other pad appeared to have normal wear. At each side of the brake pad there was build up of brake dust and rust on caliper. Brake pads were removed and one was highly glazed and breaking apart at edges. The squeaking was brought to Ford attention they stated the condition could not duplicated. The vehicle squeaked intermittently since 11,000 miles. It has been squeaking for two years.

When I stopped at a rest area I noticed smoke coming from the right rear wheel area. The brake locked up. I am concerned about a fire hazard, or failure of the brakes to function properly. Updated 10/01/15

The contact owns a 2014 Ford Taurus. While driving approximately 65 mph, there was an abnormal squeaking and a loud banging noise coming from the rear passenger side of the vehicle. The contact discovered that the rear passenger side tire and rim were hot to the touch. The vehicle was taken to a dealer, where it was diagnosed that the wheel bearing was loose and grinding, the rotors failed, and the rear brake pads failed, the hub bearing seized and the ABS sensor needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 27,500.

When we come to a stop (not moving at all) and ease up on the brake the car moves forward. This has happened three times causing accidents. One time the car moved into the house causing damage to the car, garage door and knocking bricks off the front on the house. Two other times, at stop signs, the car moved forward and bumped into the car in front of us. I am afraid this will happen again causing more damage. Have you heard of this happening with other cars? this happens to both my husband and myself. We are not driving this car any different then we have any other car.

Was driving down the road at 60mph and my vehicle shut off. Couldn't hardly push the brake in or move my steering wheel. Had to quickly put in park to start vehicle back up. Popped up on dash. "vehicle not in park".
