On Monday (labor day), I was driving and started to make a right turn when the car stalled. I was beside a gas stationed so I managed to pull in (very hard to steer) and I noticed the low oil pressure icon on. I came to a stop and pushed the start button and the car started and drove without any more problems. My husband checked the oil when I got home and it is full. While at long lewis Ford in hoover, this morning to have it checked we heard a woman describe the same scenario with her Ford. She stated it stalled about 3 or 4 times on her while driving. I feel this is a very serious issue and sounds similar to the issue one of the other automobile models had causing death and injury.

Driving at 50 mph, I lost power steering, then realized engine shut off. Was able to drift over to get off road and stop car. Engine was able to start and run fine after that. I lost all confidence in car, and dealer swapped me another car.
