Ford Motors / vibration

1 Greenville, NC, United States Review updated:

I purchased a Ford Five Hundred 2007, and since then I have had problems with the ride. Constant vibration (like a small jackhammer) starting around speed 43 mph on up to 60 mph. Replaced two tires by dealer, replaced torque converter and have had tires balance 4 times since then. Purchased 4 new tires and would hope that would solve the problem. Even after balancing tires with "Road Force Balance" I still get vibration from the car. Now this is what bothers be, I have drove two loaners from the dealer and they were Ford Five Hundred and they never rode and vibrated like my car. They drove smooth and quiet, so if they were acceptable, why is my car different?

    I have a 2005 Ford truck/taurusx/4dr wgn awd and i have had a lot of problems. First all my brakes were bad. They were covered on my extended warranty. My stabilizer bar was bad and i had a water leak coming in on the passenger side. The mechanic said it was really bad. They fixed it but said it wasnt covered under my warranty. This car had to come off of the prodution line like that. I have only got 34, 000 miles on this vehicle. Why isnt this covered. It wasnt something that was my fault. When i picked the vehicle up and got it home the mats were soaking wet. They didnt even dry it out. There is water running off of the mats. I took a cloth and soaked up as much of the water that i could. Is this a way to return the vehicle to me? Also it cost me 218.75 plus tax. What a rio off. I bought the extende warranty with the belief it was covered. But it was just a sales pitch as usual . I dont blame the Donley ford company. I blame the company itself. My husband had a ford also F150 truck. We buy Fords.but we are very disatified with the idea that a leak that came off the manufacturing line is our fault. The vehicle i.d. number is 1FMDK06195GA67606. OWNER'S NAME IS THOMAS M. SCOTT. YOU CANNOT EXPECT US TO BUY FORD'S IF WE HAVE TO PAY FOR THE MANUFACTURE NOT PUTTING A GOOD VEHICLE AND EXPECT US TO JUST KEEP PAYING FOR FORD'S MANUFACTURING PROBLEMS. WE BOUGHT THE CAR AND WARRANTY IN GOOD FAITH, BUT WE WILL NOT DO BUSINESS WITH FORD IF THIS ISSUE ISNT TAKEN CARE OF.

    We own a 2008 Ford Taurus X. Yesterday, while driving with three of our kids in the back, the power steering failed. We couldn't make any right turns. No warning, no nothing, it just failed.

    This morning we went to the Ford dealer, and the repairs are going to be $1, 000

    No warranty. This is a 2 year old car!!! This system failed and no one is helping out to correct it.

    Needless to say; this will be the last Ford we own. The respond from 2 Ford dealers were very negative and they weren't in the least helpful or concerned or friendly.
