I Was Traveling At About 40mph And A Message Flashed On My Gauge Stating Something To The Effect Engine Lower Temp. I Continued To Drive The Car And Message Went Away. I Later Found Out That My Car Had Been Recalled For Possible Fire Due To Engine Overheating. I Assume That This Message Is The Pre-cursor To What Could Be A Possible Fire. I Took My Car To The ford Dealership And I Am Awaiting A Response From ford On A Possible Fix. The Car Was Only 1 Week Old. I Have Requested ford To Take The Car Back And Get Into A Non-affected Engine Type. *tr

While Driving To Work On The Highway 65-mph The Engine Shuts Off Without Warning, The Instrumental Panel Starts Acting Up As If You Are Turning On And Off The Key. They Found A Lose Wire To The Instrumental Cluster On The Second Time They Replaced The Instrumental Cluster. It Has Been Taken Back Six Times And Now The Dashboard Shuts Down And I Lose Lights, Signals, And Other Electronic Features. I Have Lost Power Steering And Brakes In Between. They Offered Me An Extended Warranty??? It Is A Shame That A Consumer Who Buys A Car From A Dealership Has To Go Through The Grinder Just To Get Out Of Their Lemon. I Just Want To Get Out Of This vehicle. *tr

Auto Went Into “collision Avoidance Mode”; Windshield Several Red Led Warning Lights Began Blinking, And Alert Noise From Auto Started , And Steering Wheel Shuttered. The Later Two Actions Are Not Terribly Clear To Me B My Wife Started To Shout For Me To Watchout. C I Started To Press On Brakes. Thus Avoiding A Collision Between My Car And Car To Be Moving Across My Path I Was Told That The Car Does Not Stop In Any Type Of Collision Mode. It Just Slows Down. I Did Not Know Whether This Avoidance Mode Was Present (at The Slow Speed I Was Going In. I Did Know That When The Car Was In Cruise Control And This Mode Was Activated And That Avoidance Reactions Were Activated. . I Am Very Concerned That This May Happen Again. With Serious Consequences Occurring. *tr

While Cruising At About 45mph The Car Suddenly Decelerated, The Orange Wrench Light Came On, And The Car Would Not Accelerate. While Idling, The Engine Was Shaking Abnormally. This Is The Third Time This Has Occurred, Once At 40mph Cruising, And Once At About 65mph Accelerating. All Three Incidents Have Happened About 200 Miles Apart. All Three Times I Was (barely) Able To Pull Over And Restart The vehicle. Each Time The Car Took Longer Than Usual To Turn Over. Previous To This, There Were Several Incidents When Downshifting From Overdrive Into A Passing Gear. When The Car Shifted Down, The Transmission Would Thump And Shift Abnormally Hard. The Orange Wrench Light Would Then Come On. I Could Still Accelerate But I Would Have The Same “hard” Shift Every Time I Accelerated Fast Enough To For The Automatic Transmission To Switch Into A Passing Gear. When Slowing Down To A Stop, The Car Would Surge Forward Each Time It Down Shifted. After A Restart The Problem Was Temporarily Remedied, Until I Tried To Accelerate While In Overdrive Again. *tr

This Problem Can Happen At Any Time While Driving . You Could Be Going Thru An Intersection Or Getting On The High Way .the Problem Is When You Step On The Gas Pedal Nothing Happens No Acceleration. The Engine Is Still Running. The Car Then Goes Into A Limp Home Mode Of Sorts, With An Top Speed Of 25 Mph Then 5 Mph Then Back To 25 Mph , It’s Kind Of The Feeling You Get When There’s Water In Your Gas. Going Up Any Hills Can Be A Problem As The Engine Does Not Have The Power For This Task. This Creates A Serious Safety Issue That Could Lead To Injury Or Someone Being Killed. *tr

While Driving North On I-25 With Cruise Control Set At 75mph, Suddenly The vehicle Stop Forward Acceleration And Instantly Began Decreasing Speed. Immediately, I Stepped On The Accelerator To No Available Power. The Engine Refused To Communication With The Accelerator As The Rpm Would Just Increase But No Actual Power Was Given To The vehicle. I Tried Multiple Times To Get The vehicle To Respond But Eventually Had To Pull Over Because No Power Was Available. Even After Somehow Avoid 3 Lanes Of Constant Traffic, I Attempted To Start Driving Again Without Shutting The vehicle Down. During This Point All That Would Still Happen Was The vehicle Would Rev The Rpm’s, But Not Propulsion Was Available. I Had To Shutdown The Car Completely On The Highway Shoulder In Order To Get The Car To Respond To Any Time Of Gas Demands. I Have Heard About The Throttle Body Issue Many Customers Have Been Experiencing And Believe I Have The Same Issue. This Is A Huge Safety Concern Because Losing Power While In Cruise Control At 75mph Can Lead To Catastrophic Results. I Believe That This Needs To Be Looked Into Because It Causes Immediate Panic From The Driver As They Attempt To Drive Safely Out Of The Traffic. This Is The Second Time This Has Happened To Me In This vehicle. The First Time, ford Mechanics Blamed The Problem On The Recalled Fuel Pump And Replaced It. Since Clearly That Was Not The Remedy To This Problem, I Believe That More Investigation Should Be Done To Understand The Full Scope Of The Immediate Loss Of Power That Myself And Many Other Have Experienced. *tr
