Purchased this vehicle in January 2012 and have had nothing but problems with it. According to Ford all recalls have been done on this vehicle but here is a list of the issues with the van: abs light comes on, check engine light comes on, van has no cruise control at all, and last Friday I could not put the van in gear. After the Ford dealership "repaired" the solenoid for the van now all of a sudden there is currently no rear brake lights. This van is less than safe to be on the road and have seen that some of the recalls would have solved the speed control issue but the Ford factory will not answer any of my questions. Take a look online and you will see thousands of people with the same issues we are having and it was brought to the attention of Ford that we are having the same issues as thousands of other people so this is beyond a problematic vehicle. The vehicle is currently sitting at the local Ford dealer while they try and figure out what is wrong with the light system. This vehicle has been in the shop twice since we have owned it and this is costing us hundreds (so far) to fix issues that everyone with this vehicle is having. The latest issues have led to us being without a vehicle for almost a week and we have a disabled child in the home and this is unacceptable.

During preparation for an out of state trip, the transmission warning lights came on. The vehicle had 59,000 miles on it and was flushed at 40,000. Previously, a whining noise had been evident and was said to be a normal occurrence for that transmission by a Ford mechanic. A stop into a local Lincoln-Mercury dealer popped up codes relating to a solenoid and another part of the transmission. When the vehicle was serviced, the transmission pan had needle bearings and metal shavings evident. This lead to the entire transmission being replaced at a cost of $2800. 00 out of pocket. At this time, no recalls have been found for this problem.
