The SUV pto or power transfer unit over heats leaks gear oil and burns on exhurst pipes. Have to pull over to breathe and let cool down. Dealer says it is a sealed unit and should not leak. No way to service unit so you have to replace for over $2400 dollars

While driving on a highway in rush hour traffic, my vehicle suddenly lost acceleration and warning light/wrench symbol came on. I could not accelerate over 10 mph and limped to side of road. I turned off vehicle for about 20 minutes, after that turned back on and vehicle worked completely normal. I drove to dealer immediately, they replaced throttle body and updated software. My vehicle has 10,400 miles.

The car has stalled 6 or 7 times when attempting to park. The dealership seems to have fixed that problem. A more serious problem occurred on June 7 while we were on vacation in new orleans la. Driving down a busy street, I slowed for traffic and the engine quit. I was able to move to the right and avoid an accident. Restarted car and continued driving. As you may expect, my wife is very concerned that this may happen again and she or I will not have time to get out of the way of approaching traffic. My daughter did some research and found this site that lists many similar complaints with other Ford> suggest you check out the website.this should open up to that question about Ford cars stalling https://www.cargurus.com/cars/discussion-T35446_ds471580 have stalling and similar problems been reported for these cars? I have an appointment at the dealership on 27 June to have them check the problem. This will be the third time the dealership has attempted to solve these stalling problems. If they cannot correct the problem on this attempt I will have to seek relief through the Florida lemon law.
