Collision warning alert sounded, lights flashed and vehicle automatically applied braking as if a front end collision was imminent when traveling on the Pennsylvania turnpike without any cars in the proximity of my car. At the time, I was dring and braking to reduce the speed from the posted 70 miles per hour to the new speed zone of 55 miles per hour.

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.
