problem #1

Several events have occurred with my new 2009 Ford Flex, problems with power door locks; track control activated while vehicle was driven slow coming to a stop; strong burning odor in motor; seat belt alter sounded while seat belts were in use; all the light in vehicle shut off while vehicle was being driving for approx. 10 seconds; when going in reverse brakes made noise in the front and rear areas and while car was being driving forward; car would automatically slow down while being driving; vehicle shut off while being driving; vehicle was taken for service. According to the car dealer everything was fixed after several days while driving the vehicle with my family as I was coming to a slow stop the back breaks locked causing an immediate short stop and a terrible smell of burning rubber came from the back tires. Took the car back to the dealer (02-25-09) they said they found no problems, I insisted in them rechecking the vehicle and as of today (02-26-09) they still have it. Waiting for results but I am extremely worried being my wife is the driver of this vehicle with our children, grandchildren and our sons baseball team mates.
