problem #4

Oct 262017

Focus

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles

Out of the blue I turned a corner and the wheel did not return to its position as it should. I have to turn the wheel back straight after I turn. It is very dangerous. I contacted the dealership and was told my particular car does not have a recall but they could check it next week. This is very disheartening because it is dangerous.

Focus SE V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 256 miles

The steering on my brand new Focus is intolerable on the highway. I have tried everything to keep it from drifting left->right and right->left. At first I thought it might have been the new tires gripping the roadway, but after turning over 1,000 miles, the condition is still there.

Dealer says nothings wrong with the car.

It is impossible to keep in my lane on the highway and I'll never by another Ford again.

Focus SE

  • Manual transmission
  • 12 miles

The car is hard to keep in the lane in a straight line, feels unsafe, and has a noise from the right wheel. When driving down the freeway the gas peddle stops working like there is no power or low on gas, the motor won't get any RPM.

The day I got my 2014 Ford Focus, I took it in because the steering wheel was not straight as I went down the street, the dealer service shop took my car in and told me they fixed it. I went home and next day when driving on the freeway the steering wheel still was not straight and car was hard to keep straight. I took the car back and they took it in and when they gave it back to me the car was not fixed, it was the same.

I was driving the car the next day on freeway and gas peddle stopped working, it was like driving with almost no gas peddle. I had to put the peddle to the floor just to make it to the dealer. When I got there I turned the car off and when the service guy took the car for a drive it did not do it . That was so unsafe I was almost hit by a big rig as I exited the freeway. The service guy got me a rental car and told me my car would be ready that Tue. Well, Tue. came and I was told they just got the OK to fix it and would be one more week .

I got my car back next Tue. and the car was the same, not a thing was fixed and they told me they could not find anything wrong with my car . I took the car for a test ride on the freeway and it did it again. I took the car back and they kept my rental car, now I have no car and I am a store owner and I have no way to run my store. It is only me and my wife and she doesn't drive ..I will try to call tomorrow and see if they can get me a car to drive. I opened a case with Ford for the buy back/lemon law
