While at a stop sign or traffic light withmy foot on the brake the vehicle accelerated independently without warning. I have almost been thrown into traffic due to the independent accelerated. After this happening sevral times and phone calls to the dealer and then taking the car into the dealer.the Ford dealer stated they have seen this alot and the problem was in the throddel body. However, I had to still pay $700 to have their known problem fixed. Car mileage 113,000.

Taurus X 6-cyl

  • 9,000 miles
On three different occasions when either pulling out from gravel or wet pavement the ESC will apply the anti-lock brakes. The car is in no way skidding or otherwise out of control in any way. It presents a big safety concern. As we pulled out onto the main road the cars anti-lock brakes were being applied while we were trying to drive down the road. We had to try to get the car to the side of the road in order to get out of the way of traffic coming up behind us. The ESC light flashes during these episodes. I made an appointment with the local Ford dealer twice and they found nothing wrong with the car. I want to make it clear that the brakes come on after the turn has been made and the car is now straight and steady. Each time this has happened it was at low speeds.
