I Was Traveling On The Turnpike When All At Once My Car Jerked Then Lost Power, I Was Unable To Steer The Car So I Coasted On The Median Till The Car Allowed Me To Turn Onto An Exit Ramp. My Husband Came And Checked The Truck, It Started And Seemed To Be Okay. The Entire Month Of November The Truck Starts However The Steering Wheel Is Locked. I Have To Cut The Car Off And On At Least 6 Times While Trying To Turn The Wheel Before It Unlocks And Allows Me To Move The Steering Wheel. My Husband Called The ford Dealer And Was Advised That The Entire Steering Column Would Need To Be Replaced, And I Would Have To Bear The Cost. I Don’t Feel This Is Fair Because I Researched This Matter And Found There Are A Lot Of Complaints About This Matter. I Am Not Able To Drive The Truck Because I’m Afraid There Could Be A Catastrophe. I Think Something Should Be Done To Fix This Matter. Thanks *tr

While Coming To A Stop At A Major Intersection With A Car In Front Of Me, My 2009fordescape Suddenly Accelerated And Would Not Stop, Despite My Frantic Efforts To Brake The Car; I Swerved To My Right, Went Through 6 Inches Of Snow On Grass Curb And Then Went Up A 5 Ft. Ice Bank, Where My Wheels Jammed In The Ice And I Stopped, Sitting At Nearly A 45 Degree Angle, 5 Ft. Above The Road. My Front Bumper Was Mangled In The Ice Bank And My Passenger-side Mirror Was Broken Off By A Stop Sign. If Not For The Snow Bank, I Would Have Continued Into The Very Busy Intersection, Where I And Other Drivers Would Have Undoubtedly Been Injured Or Killed. I Want To Emphasize That Despite Hitting The Brake, The Car With Unintended Acceleration Problem, Did Not Stop, It Kept Going Until Hitting The Snow-ice Bank. *tr

    Having brake issues that can’t be fixed on my 2009 Ford Escape. Brakes go all the way to the floor before working. Had the master cylinder replaced, and it didn’t fix the problem. Why hasn’t there been a recall?
