Excessive Torque Is Too Easily Applied To The Wheels When Taking Off From A Stop Causing Unexpected Traction Loss And Tire Spin Even Under Light Acceleration, Especially When Turning. When Driving At Speed While Passing Or Otherwise Using Close To Or Full power (in A Straight Line), The Car Will Suddenly Pull To One Side Or The Other Unexpectedly. Any Necessary Steering Correction Causes The Car To Pull To The Opposite Side And Often Causes The Car To Wander Across The Lane Back And Forth As I Try To Maintain Control. These Issues Seem To Be Related To The High Torque Of The Electric Motor As Well As The Electronically Controlled “torque Vectoring” Differential. An Intermittent Problem That I’ve Noticed Is, When Coming To A Stop, Sometimes The Electronics Controlling The Internal Combustion Motor Get Confused, power Is Applied To Wheels In A Stuttering Fashion, Requiring Extra Force To Be Applied To The Brakes Until The Engine Shuts Down (as It Normally Does When Coming To A Stop). Despite The Required Date Of Incident Field Below, This Is Not A One Time Incident And Commonly Happens On A Day To Day And/or Intermittent Basis.

Mileage was 20000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FADP5CU1EL. Ford C-max 2014 problem was reported in MADISON, WI. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 60 mph.

2014 ford Cmax Energi – 70,300 Miles Purchased New Nov. 2014. Was Driving Switch Backs Down Hill With My Car In Low. I Heard A Noise And Suddenly The Car Slipped Out Of Gear In Neutral. I Braked To A Stop. Put It In Park And Back To Drive And It Seemed Fine. A Week And A Later, It Did It Again In The Same Down Hill Place On The Switch Backs. I Really Takes Off When It Unexpectedly Slips Out Of Gear. I Took It To The ford Agency The Next Day To Have It Checked. They Kept It 42 Days (including Sundays) But Never Found The Cause. They Told Me To Take The Car And Come Back If It Did It Again. They Could Not Seem To Get The Transmission To Slip Therefore There Was No Problem. Today, July 12, 2017 The Agency Called And Asked Me To Pay 0ver $900.00 For The Rental Cars. I Told Them No. I Called The Agency Weekly To Check On Their Progress And Each Time Was Told They Didn’t Have An Answer Or They Couldn’t Get It To Slip. The Slipping Experience Was Very Unnerving…those Few Seconds Feeling You’re Out Of Control Felt Like Minutes. I Love My Car And Just Want A Guarantee It Won’t Do It Again. I’m Not Sure How Many Of This Make, Model And Year Have 0ver 70,000 Miles Thus, Could This Be A Factor In The Transmission Problem With My Car That Hasn’t Shown Up In A Like Car With Less Mileage. I Did Take Out Every Extended Warranty On The Car At The Time Of Purchase. The Vehicle Was Definitely In Motion When The Problem Occurred On A 2 Lane Road.

Mileage was 70300 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FADP5CU8EL. Ford C-max 2014 problem was reported in SANTA MARIA (BILLING), CA. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 30 mph.

Wrench Light Came On Meaning Contact Dealer Asap About powertrain Issue. I Had Noticed A Few Days Earlier It Seemed To Not Be Switching Between Electric And Engine As Well Or Smoothly When Driving. When Stationary, The Display Screen For Radio Would Not Come On When Getting Into The Car. Instead It Gives Message “turning Off To Conserve Battery.” Car Has Been Well Maintained And Is At 78000 Miles. Took To Dealer. Cannot Find Issue. Codes It Is Throwing Are For Battery But They Both Test Good. They Reset Codes And We Went To Pick It Up. Now Key Fobs Won’t Work Unless The Car Is Turned On. Alarm Button On The Fob Makes The Car Sound Like A Fluttering Noise, But No Real Alarm. The Dealer Is Going To Keep It More And Check It Out More. Still Has The Message About Conserving Battery On The Screen. They Hadn’t Found What Caused The Battery Codes And Now More Things Aren’t Working.

Mileage was 78000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FADP5AU5EL. Ford C-max 2014 problem was reported in RINGGOLD, GA. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.
