My initial problem was traction control. If you slip coming out of a driveway and you hit gravel, mud, snow, rain your traction control will stop you in the middle of the street and you cannot drive. Kind of a problem with cars coming right at you. Problem 2 is that this seems to also affect the wheel bearings and cause premature failure. I am going on my second replacement at 72,000 miles. Problem 3 is that when the wheel bearings fail they wear on your rotors and I am now also needing to replace those also. I certainly hope that this gets addressed soon. This vehicle is not only a safety hazard it is also a money pit.

The contact owns a 2007 Ford Transit connect. The contact stated that the transmission downshifted into second gear while driving at 65 mph. The contact also stated that the RPM increased, the vehicle jerked, and became difficult to control. The vehicle was restarted and resumed normal function. The failure was experienced numerous times and was taken to the dealer where the throttle body and accelerator relay was replaced and the engine was rebuilt but the failure was not corrected. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 56,000 and the current mileage was 79,645.
