Ford Complaint - Faulty location of a fuel shut off switch
My girlfriends son bought a 2004 Mustang and was happy with their buy until one evening. Her son turn a corner of a sharp turn and his speaker box in his trunk slid and hit the fuel shut off switch to the engine. This stranded him on the roadway not knowing what was wrong. We had the car towed to ford who after charging us 112 bucks that it was just the fuel switch. Now this switch is in the trunk by the left rear light unprotected. so anything you have in your trunk that is more then a few pounds could roll or slide and hit this switch and you'll have no gas going to your engine. When we talked to the dealership and ford customer service center we got the brush off and the suggestion of not putting anything too heavy or moveable in the trunk. So what good is the trunk if you have limitations cause ford engineers can't design something that is protected? I have always hated ford and this situation just confirms how crappy of a business they are.
