car   Wrecker And Wheel Lift Devices problem of Ford Escape

The car involved is a 2012 Ford Escape. I had stopped at a stop sign and pressed the gas pedal to accelerate and it would not accelerate and began jerking forward parked in front of a business and put car in park and again pressed the accelerator and again it did not accelerate. Backed out and put car in drive and moved about 10 feet from where I had parked and again it jerked forward and did not accelerate. Tried moving a second time with the same results. Parked it and turned it off to call a wrecker. Tried turning it off and turning it on again and this time it worked; accelerated when gas pedal was pressed, did not jerk as it had previously. Drove it without incident but decided to take it to a dealer in wharton, texas who put it on the computer to determine what was causing the problem. It came up with no code. He told me that the Ford Escapes and fusions had a throttle problem and he was sure that was what the problem was, he replaced it at a cost of $484. 60. Although I had just purchase the car, used on July 13, 2013 and was under warranty for engine and powertrain, the warranty did not cover this expense. I feel the dealer should have told me about this problem, but seeing that I am a woman, his bottom line was profit at any cost, he did not inform me. Now I find out that the Ford Escapes are riddled with problems. So much for buying american!. This problem occurred on Wednesday, August 7, 2013.

Vehicle identification number (VIN): 1FAFP34PX3_. Crash happened when the problem occurred. I have been in the wrecker business for 20 years, this being the second Ford Focus involved in an accident this year. I have noticed that this vehicle does not perform adequately when involved in a crash, therefore putting the passengers at risk of severe injury or death. The driver of the vehicle mentioned above lost control, and slid sideways into oncoming traffic resulting in an impact to the passenger door and resulted in a fatality of the driver. . The area of protection surrounding the passenger compartment is inadequate in that it does not provide safety upon impact. This being the second Focus towed recently, it has become aparent to me that these light weignt vehicles propose a safety hazard to the public and should be re-examined. It was Dec. 15, 2012 when this wrecker and wheel lift devices issue occurred.

car   Wrecker And Wheel Lift Devices problem of Volkswagen Jetta

The vehicle involved was a 2000 Volkswagen Jetta. Car was being towed on a flat bed tow truck. The vehicle was secured by 2 front hooks/strap which were attached to a winch. The rear was secured by a strap attached to the rear tow loop on my vehicle. As the tow truck was moving at about 10 mph, the tow loop broke (in about 3 spots)( the loop is rolled steel, not the solid forged peice utilized on other vehicles). The resulting crack/breakage resulted in the vehicle rolling forward, dropping the 2 other hooks and nearly rolling back off of the tow truck. This all happened at less than 15 mph. Imagine if it had been at 60 mph!!!!!. If this happened to my car, it will happen to others. The loop is too weak to serve its function of being able to secure the vehicle.
