Milan 6-cyl

I was first in line at a red light on a 2-lane highway. When the light turned green, I accelerated and halfway through the intersection the car "lurched" and lost power. The car didn't die but there was no response in the gas pedal and a wrench symbol appeared in the dash. I made it through the intersection and to the shoulder at idle speed (with a line of cars behind me). I put the car in park and turned it off for a minute. It restarted ok, the wrench was gone and the car ran fine. I considered it a fluke until a week later when the same thing happened, except that I was traveling at 70 mph in the inside lane of the same highway. Luckily there was room to change lanes while decelerating and I pulled to the shoulder. Again, it restarted fine after I turned it off, and the wrench was gone. I took the car for service at a Ford dealer because losing power in traffic is a very dangerous situation and who knows when and where it might happen again. The tech found a problem with the throttle body and replaced it at a cost of about $350 parts/labor. Of course, we are just outside of the warranty period at 41,000 miles.

I was driving down the freeway at 65 mph, when the check engine and transmission light came on and the car immediately started to decelerate and I was not to give the car gas to get out of the way of moving traffic. After turning the car off and turning the car on again, the car seemed to have reset itself and the car started working properly again. A couple of months later, now at 41000 miles, the car is having this problem more frequently and is unsafe to drive. I took the car to a dealership to see what was wrong with the car when they stated to me that the throttle body kept getting stuck closed. I feel this should be looked into further as a problem with the throttle body should not be going out for a car that is still practically brand new.

I have a 2010 Mercury Milan this car has been in the shop many times the transmission was slipping it has left me in the middle of an intersection and the last straw was 3 weeks ago when the transmission kicked in when I was turning it popped my neck and I hit a curb. I do not feel safe in the car. One time the gas pedal stuck and I had to reach down and pull out my floor mat. Also trim parts just fall off of this thing.

The contact owns a 2010 Mercury Milan. While driving in reverse, the accelerator pedal stuck and the vehicle began to surge backwards until it rolled over a curb resulting in a crash. A police report was filed but there were no injuries. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealership where the contact was informed that there was no chance the vehicle could have surged. The vehicle had not been repaired at the time of the complaint. The failure occurred again while the contact was driving in reverse; the failure resulted in another crash. Another police report was filed and no injuries were reported. The vehicle was again taken to an authorized dealership where the contact was informed there was nothing wrong with the vehicle. The failure mileage was approximately 1,500. The current mileage was approximately 3,000.

My car sped up while I had my foot on the brake I just got it stopped before I hit a truck the first time. The second time I was pulling into my garage to park my car when it sped up and I took the center section between my doors before I got it stopped. It done $3299 to the garage and $2600 to the car. Ford checked it out for two hours and could not find anything wrong.
