Out of Town: Brakes spongy suddenly with no warning. Dash lit up like Christmas tree. Brakes pushed to the floor and slowed to a gradual stop. In residential area, 20 mph. Can't imagine if on the hwy. Intermittent issue. Solenoid and brake replaced. in a residential area (THANK GOD) the brakes gave out AGAIN, Identical issues, Identical light show on my dash. Apparently as the solenoid and brake booster went out, they were wearing out the ABS module. Now the ABS module went kaput.

I had the reflash done on the transmission and it did not work with my car. Whenever you would shift between gears, I had to wait for 2 to 3 seconds for it to go into gear. If by chance you hit the gas it would slam into gear. Had the coolant bleed twice and it did not work. The auto climate control was reprogrammed and it still did not work. Would blow out cold air as soon as car started, didn't wait for engine to warm up.

I took it AGAIN for whining engine at 35&45 mph & getting louder. Took 2 drives for them to hear. First they said "Normal noise" but I said it was NOT normal. They worked w/ Engineers and replaced pulley/tensioner. ALL GONE! Under warranty After only 9 days back from the shop, my car emergency engine lite went on & engine vibrated, even in Park. After tow to shop, svce says it was a bad throttle body, like many Ford Fusions. Was replaced with brand new one under warranty. I took it AGAIN for whining engine at 35&45 mph & getting louder.

One Saturday, my wife started the car and got a zillion lights: Check engine, ABS failure, Advanctrac failure, and others. No brakes at all, pedal went all the way to the floor. I went there (20 miles) to investigate, discovered low brake fluid, and added some. With this we were able to limp it home slowly to the dealer. Brakes were unreliable, but the pedal would pump up enough to stop the car. Monday morning the dealer called to say the ABS unit was bad, and possibly another module but they'd need to replace the ABS module to be able to tell. Diagnostics showed 8-10 trouble codes including fatal failure of the ABS module. Luckily, our warranty still had about 2 weeks left, so it was covered. The other suspected module (HCU??) tested OK once the ABS was replaced. Shop time was 2-1/2 days.
