The contact owns a 2015 Ford Flex. While driving approximately 5 mph attempting to merge onto a highway, the vehicle started to lose acceleration and hesitated. The contact turned off and restarted the vehicle. The contact drove to an independent mechanic who determined that the throttle body was clogged and needed cleaning. The contact also stated that the failure occurred at least twenty times during the past eighteen months. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 62,000.

I was driving in the highway going about 65 mph when without warning I started loosing speed and ended going 20mph. I was able to pull of to the shoulder and notice a wrench icon appear in the dash before the car lost power. It was an extremely scary situation and I was thankful I was able to get to the shoulder of the highway without any incident. I towed it to my Ford dealer which is still there being diagnose. I don't know what happen but I believe its a defection because nothing was done to cause it. These is a very dangerous defection and can cause the life of the driver and passangers. I want to make the Ford company aware of this situation and demand it takes action before a tragedy happens. I hope my Ford Flex is fixed but I will never feel fully safe in this vehicle again. I never knew that manufactures would be careless enough to place these defective cars on the road and now I am stuck with one. Please have a recall of these Ford vehicles before lives are lost.
