It shouldn't happen.
Thank you....and yes I do think this issue was serious, and still is. As of now, I was told by my dealer and Ford Customer Service to "monitor the vehicle". So I guess that makes me the crash test dummy....

How can a car company not take something like this serious enough and say..you know what, lets get this guy in another car and use this one to figure out what the hell happened.
