I purchased BRAN NEW 2016 Ford Expedition Platinum. Within 8000 miles the vehicle shut down while on a 6 lane highway passing two 18 wheelers.
God was watching over me and allowed me to coast to side of road (I was in the third passing lane). Pumped that gas like there was no tomorrow....nothing. Stopped, caught my breath and the car like turned itself on again..... great.
Called dealer. Dealer said it must be in sensors and I should disable. We tried to find the front sensor to disable , no luck. (vehicle wasn't equipped with that particular sensor), SO I took it as a fluke, after all it was raining, maybe the rain splashing around the 18 wheelers....??
So 150 miles south, SMAE THING....truck shuts down....no power. I was ready....coasted immediately to side, called dealer, flipping out. Ot this point truck is running again..... so I agree to take it to nearest dealer at my destination...which I did....they said it was "UNFILTERED AIR" in the system...NO ***....Daytona Ford.
SO I could have been killed...ANYONE OUT THERE INJURED DUE TO FORD? I am a LIVING witness to the issue and so is my dealer. Anyway...this was the start of a vehicle of LEMON PROPORTIONS.... THe dealer said I should have parked it on the side of the road and MADE FORD retrieve it.
(hind sight is 20/20) EVERYTHING went wrong on this vehicle. It was in the shop day after day after day after day and finally the dealership filed a lemon report with Ford who only chose to be EXTREMELY RUDE to me AND the dealership. IF someone was ever injured due to this error in FORD VEHICLES....shutting down....I WILL GO TO BAT WITH YOU! FORD NEEDS TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE as MANY could be killed!!!!
The rest of the issues, the lemon part of the vehicle, MY DEALER finally replaced the vehicle and FORD STILL tells them it's their loss. HOW SAD IS THAT????
