Approximately After 10 Minutes Of Driving, The Engine Shut Down And The Electric Motor Got Stuck At About Half Its power (according To The Display On The Dashboard). The Front Air Bag Malfunction Light Was On (this Had Happened 3 Times Before During The Past Two Weeks), The “hill Assist Off” Light Turned On, And A Large Warning Message Came Up On The Left Side Of The Dashboard. The Vehicle Had Very Little power, I Managed To Get To The Side Of The Road And Pulled Over In A Parking Lot. Parked And Turned The Ignition Off, Waited A Minute And Started The Vehicle. It Worked Normal For The Rest Of The Drive (5 More Miles). The Next Morning, The Front Air Bag Malfunction Light Came Up Again After 4 Or 5 Miles Of Drive. I Took The Vehicle To The Dealer. *tr

My Ipod 4s Was Connected To The Myford Touch System Via Usb Cable, And It Showed The Apple Logo, Suggesting That It Had Been Issued A Reboot Command. Had To Put The Transmission In Park And Restart The Engine In The Middle Of The Intersection To Continue. *tr

While Driving Vehicle On Highway, And Odometer Was At 3400 Miles ;vehicle Had No power While Climbing. During The Climb, Vehicle Could Not Maintain 35 Mph. After Getting To Top Of Hill, Vehicle Drove Fine At Highway Speed. Every Climb After That Point, Vehicle Would Decelerate, And Engine Prm’s Would Rev To Maximum. Took Vehicle To 3 Dealerships, And Never Test Drove Or Diagnosed. The Response From Each Dealership Was This Was Normal For A Hybrid. At 18000 Miles Heard A Loud Whining Noise. Took Vehicle To A 4th Dealership Where They Discovered The Transmission Failed, And Both Cv Axles Were Damaged Around The Boot. Dealership Covered The Transmission Under Warranty, But Forced Me To Pay For The Replacement Of The Cv Axles, Claiming The Boots Tore From Road Debris. Since Then I Had The Vehicle Inspected By An Independent Mechanic, And They Stated That Debris Could Not Have Tore The Inner Boot Of The Cv Axle With The Large Fairing Under The Car. Unless There Is A Hole In The Fairing. I Contacted ford Directly, And They Referred Me To A Manager Who Claims To Be A Metallurgist, And Said The Failure Was My Fault Without Inspecting The Vehicle Or Axles. When I Contacted The Original Dealership About This Vehicle Being In The Service Dept 15 Times In Less Than 20,000 Miles, All I Received Was A Sorry.
