problem #2

Mar 102005

Focus 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 2,000 miles
My car stalled when driving anywher from 20 - 70mph. The gauges go haywire the light cut off and on, the clock resets, the speedometer goes crazy, and I have a young daughter that rides in this car. This started in October and is still going on to date. My car is still under warranty.

problem #1

Focus 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 23,650 miles
Car stalled while driving - would not re-start - between 1/2 to 2/3 full tank - independent garage diagnosed faulty fuel pump, said fuel pump relay was "smoking" and red-hot - luckily happened in town, was scheduled to drive into Chicago on 90/94 with family members including a child just 2 days from now! - have read history on this problem, can't believe NHTSA allowed Ford to wait for failures - apparently Ford's "fix" on this problem is not correct, as this is a 2002 model car - car towed to dealer for repairs, awaiting outcome.
