While Driving, I Noted That The Power Assist Was Variable. In The Middle Of A Turn, The Steering Suddenly Became Difficult. And Then Returned To Normal. At Other Times During Turning, The Power Steering Would Become Extremely Easy, And Then Return To Normal. This Is An Intermittent Occurrence And Has Persisted To Date. (mileage Is Now About 3000 Miles) This Stiffening Up And Releasing Could Result In A Dangerous Situation While Driving. A Test Drive (3-5 Miles) By A Service Rep Did Not Produce This Occurrence. *tr

When I Was Driving My Car, I Came To A Red Light And A Yellow Warning Message Popped Up On The Screen, “power Steering Assist Fault.” It’s A Brand New Car With 2,800 Miles, Seriously? It Also Happened Again Two Weeks Later When I Was Driving. I Hadn’t Noticed Any Steering Problems With My Car. I Took My Car To The ford Dealer Right Away Where I Got It From. As Always They Said I Would Need To Bring My Car In For The Day, And That “they Would Look Into It.” When The Service Worker Looked Up The Problem I Was Experiencing On Their Program, Nothing Was Reported Like Mine So They Couldn’t Really Do Much. I Had To Research The Problem Myself Online Because They Always Tend To Think You’re Making These Problems Up. That’s When I Stumbled Upon A Couple Different Forums Of People Who Have Had The Exact Same Problem. One Person Did Say They’re Whole Power Steering Rack Had To Be Replaced. I Brought That Information To The ford Dealership And I’m Waiting For A Response Of What And If They’re Going To Do Next. *tr

Vehicle Driver Was Driving On A Public Road Approximately 35 Miles Per Hour When A Thud Was Heard And The Right Front Of The Vehicle Went Down Similar To Having A Flat Tire. The Driver Stopped The Vehicle As The Steering And Braking Was Adversely Affected. After Getting Out Of The Vehicle And Seeing What Happened The Driver Saw That The Right Front Wheel Was Out Of Its Normal Configuration With The Wheel At Approximately A 45 Degree Angle With The Top Of The Wheel Pointing Inward Toward The Engine And The Bottom Of The Wheel Point Outward Toward The Right. After A Tow Vehicle Was Called And Picking Up The Vehicle, It Was Discovered That The Right Front Aluminum Lower Control Arm Broke Straight Across Where The Lower Ball Joint Was Pressed Into The Control Arm. This Caused Release Of The Lower Axis Connection Of The Wheel Spindle And Broke The Right Front Driveshaft , Tie Rod, And Bent The Strut. This Is A Catastrophic Failure Of The Lower Control Arm With Potential To Cause Serious Injury To The Driver And Any Other Vehicles Or Pedestrians. ford Is Trying To Disclaim And Play Down This Failure Saying That Is Not The Fault Of Their Defective Lower Control Arm. I Feel All Vehicles Of This Kind Have The Potential To Fail In The Same Way And Should Be Immediately Inspected For Signs Of Cracking On The Lower Control Arm. *tr
