While driving the traction control light will come on..causing the car to shutter and shake, while this is happening, it is like the brakes do not work. I have taken it to the shop multiple times nothing can be done because they can not get a code because the check engine light is not on. I will not allow my children to drive this car because it is to dangerous...it has since had the traction control light on followed by a wrench and the check engine light came on now it will not go over 30 mph, it is sitting at the Ford dealer as we speak. I have been dealing with this for the last 3 years. This all may have been prevented had the problem been found sooner. At this point I am considering to surrender my car, I would rather have a hit on my credit than something happening to my family while in this vehicle!!!

I was driving my 2007 Ford Expedition merging onto the freeway, the traction control light came on, the vehicle then started to shake and shutter, at that point the vehicle started to slow down and applied pressure to the brakes while it made a rattling sound, it lasted less than a minute but felt like an eternity. While I was afraid, I eased off the gas to let it slow down, then I tried to apply light pressure to the brakes to avoid being in a accident, then the vehicle picked up and responded as normal. This has happened on 3 occasions. Very frightening!!! my mileage is only at $44,900 when it first occurred my mileage was around 38,000 miles.

While exiting the bypass the traction assist came on for no reason causing the truck to shake and almost felt like the truck accelerated as I hit the break. It was on a turn but I was actually going under the speed limit on dry road. Starting to have more problems with this vehicle to the point it is troubling me to even drive or have my kids in or around the vehicle and wanted to get it on record. Will be posting other incidents that have occured since I have owned this vehicle which is only a month this week.

problem #1

Expedition

  • 68,656 miles
Road conditions-wet; outside temp.-46deg. (March 23, 2010 mileage at incident occurance - 68659) upon driving the vehicle the traction control warning light(rsc) will sudden appear alternating with a wrench warning light, which then disables the ability to accelerate (even with the pedel depressed to the floor). When this occurs it forces me to have to immediately pull over to side of the road for safety. When this occurs the engine is still running as well as all the electronics and no check engine light appears. This issue has happened multiple times and has been brought to the Ford dealership for invesitigation, they have been unable to reproduce the issue while in the shop, since there are no codes to check they are unable to fix the issue. No parts have been repair or replaced. I feel as though if this were to happen while in the high speed lane on the highway, this would cause a serious situation in which an accident may occur and I fear for the safety of my family or anyone that drives this vehicle. All service on this vehicle has been done at the Ford dealership while under warranty (75K extended warranty). The last time this specific issue occurred was May 2009 mileage was 54494. In total this problem as occured 6 times since I have owned the vehicle.
