I bought my Ford Focus zx5 on October of 2002. A month after I had it I took it through the car wash and it stalled. Ever since then I had have problems starting it. I brought it in and was told that there was nothing wrong with the car. On July 21, 2003 car stalled going through an intersection with on-coming traffic, I got the car to start and I brought it in to the dealership and again they can't find anything wrong with the car. They referred me to the dispute settlement board. I filled out all the information and submitted it. On September 11, 2003 the board decided that they did not find a problem so I had a Ford engineer come out. He finally came out in October and said there was nothing wrong with the car. I do not feel safe in this vehicle. I tried to get rid of this vehicle but I owe $10,000. 00 more than it is worth. Please help. I don't know what else to do.

car   Car Stall problem 17

While driving at highway speeds engine lost power, nearly resulting in a rear end collision. Dealer was not able to duplicate the problem. The tachometer would suddenly race up to 7000 and the wheels lost power. The vehicle felt as if it were in neutral, after 15-30 seconds or downshifted to 2nd gear, the vehicle re-engages and the wheel power was restored. This was an intermittent problem. Ford was unable to diagnose the problem. A flight recorder was installed twice. The engineers revealed that the problem could have been related to the speed sensors and input shaft sensors. The consumer's husband experienced a complete loss of power. The vehicle was unable to be moved because there was no power steering. The loss lasted 10 seconds, the gear was placed into 2nd gear, then back to drive and the power steering was back active. This problem returned two more times. On one of the incidences, the tachometer had gone over 7 then dropped. The transmission slipped intermittently.
