ford transit Is Designed To Allow The Ignition Key To Be Turned Off While It’s In Any Gear Including While It’s In Drive On The Highway. Turning This Key While On The Highway Will Cause The Power Steering To Go Out Causing A Dangerous Situation For The Driver. My Van Has Turned Itself Off While I Was Driving On The Highway At 60 Miles An Hour Four Times Because My Knee Touched The Key. To Make Matters Worse, The Steering Column Is Adjustable But It Adjust Itself Without Activating The Leever Causing The Steering Column With The Ignition Key To Constantly Come Closer To My Knees. Two ford Dealership Said That It’s Working As Designed. The Design Needs To Be Changed Because It’s Unsafe.

2016 ford transit 350hd 144″wheelbase With The Extended Length, High Roof, Dual Rear Wheels. Took Possession Of Van On 05-25-17 With 350 Miles. Had A Vibration In The Steering Wheel Which Started Around 40 Mph And Got More Intense The Faster You Drove. Took It To Have The Front Wheel Balance Checked And Each Wheel Has +2 Oz (06-08-17 1025 Miles) The Wheel Balance Fixed The Steering Wheel Vibration Problem. Then I Noticed Unsafe Handling Characteristics, Unsafe Swaying And Possible Loss Of Control When Affected By The Smallest Amount Of Wind, Passing Larger Vehicles And Road Conditions. Not Safe To Drive Over 55 Mph On The Highway Due To Excessive Swaying That Could Lead To Loss Of Control. Had ford Dealer Confirm That There Is No Mechanical Problem. It Is Not A Intermittent Problem But Rather A Problem That Occurs Every Time It Is Driven In The Above Conditions. It Is A Problem That Became Evident Right After Taking Possession Of The Vehicle And Fixing The Wheel Balance Issue.

seat Belt Latch Failure. The Plastic Cover On The seat Belt Latch Receiver Detaches From The Assembly During Normal Use. This Renders The seat Belt Unable To Latch Completely, And Renders The seat Belt Inoperable. The Passenger May Not Be Aware That The Latch Is Not Secured. This Was Noted On Two Separate Belts In The Rear seats Of A Rented 12-passenger transit. Based On My Interview With The Passenger, It Most Likely Occurred By Sitting On The Lower Receiver While Having A Mobile Phone In Their Back Pants Pocket. On One Occasion, The Passenger Stated She Heard A “crack” Or “pop.” It Should Be Noted That Both Occupants Were Less Than 150 Lbs. The Plastic Covers Did Not Completely Fail, But Were Shifted Towards The Anchor Of The Lower Assembly. This Did Create A Situation Where The Passenger Was Unprotected.

There Have Been 4 Of These Vehicles In Our Fleet Do This. ford Is Aware Of The Problem But Refuses To Do Anything About It To Accommodate The Drivers Even Going So Far As To State It Could Be Weeks Before Even Diagnosing The Problem. This Is To Cover The Fact Hat They Have The Throttle Bodies Needed To Repair This Complaint On Backorder. If On A Freeway This Is A Dangerous Failure That Would Compromise The Safety Of All On Board.

After Arriving Home In Our 2016 ford transit Van, We Parked In Our Driveway And Placed The Transmission Into The Park Position And Set The Emergency Brake. Our Family Opened The Doors And Proceeded To Exit The Vehicle. Our Four Year Old Son, However, Had Unbuckled And Twisted Around In His seat Such That He Became Trapped In His seat Belt. The More He Struggled To Get Free The More It Ratcheted Tight… To The Point That He Couldn’t Breath. Despite Us Trying Everything To Free Him, The seat Belt Would Not Release Him. Fearing That He Was In Real Medical Danger, I Cut Him Free Thereby Rendering That seat Belt Unusable. I Am Concerned That The seat Belts Are Defective In That They Failed To Release Properly When The Van Was Placed In Park And The Doors Were Opened.
