CPS Failure. . .wtf Ford doesn't it seem pretty dangerous
About 2 months back I had my CPS go out on my 2001 powerstroke....doing about 55 down a country road and *slug slug slug slugout*
55 mph, no brakes, no power steering, heavy heavy truck
obviously it really sucked to stop her before the next corner...involved lots of pirate language and checking of the gas gauge.
come to stop, put in park. turn over, vroom back up....
i scream home, turning 90 degrees into my driveway she dies again and i run over 3 rose bushes. call dealership, somehow limped her there without dying.
so $200 dollars later i'm trucking again...but seriously it seems awefully irresponsible to sell a vehicle that endangers your life due to a cheap sensor.
maybe ford should put in two sensors? *omgosh costs* so then you can see a light when one goes out.
thank god i wasn't going through an intersection, or coming up to a crosswalk full of students at school.....
this problem could be very dangerous.
