The contact owns a 2014 Lincoln Mkz. While driving approximately 35 mph, the vehicle hesitated to accelerate when the turbo was engaged. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the vehicle was functioning as designed. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 27,000.

Car rolls on its own without depressing brake or engaging any gear. Vehicle has done this about 5 times in past 6 months and twice in the last 6 weeks. Car is very dangerous at "any speed" since it "runs" on its own. Ford should rename this Mkz hybrid vehicle either: Dmd for "driving miss daisy" or uas for "unsafe at zero" puf for "pure unadulterated fiction" Ford has lied about car performance (advertised 45 mpg city + highway for both 2013 & 2014 hybrid models) when I only get about 60% of that - 28 mpg (documented) in order to gain market share (hybrids esp. Lexus). Ford blames its own wind tunnel tests for overstated mpg (maybe tested with hurricane sandy at their back). Now, this car drives itself, a nice safety feature huh ? and, Ford never issued me any recall on its unique "invisible chauffeur driven" vehicle.
