I purchased my car 3 weeks ago and within the first week, the traction control system kicked in and the wheel stopped

Asked over 1 year ago - Tampa, FL

& the car stopped in the middle of the road. When I contacted the service department where I bought it, they said to hit TCS OFF. I have done that and now it's doing it again. I took it in, because its under warranty still and they told me what was wrong with it..but yet they didnt fix that they fixed another part. They are telling me I have to pick up my car and they cannot hold it even though I feel they should fix whats wrong. This problem happened and caused my car to veer across 4 lanes of oncoming traffic..If this happens again, can I sue the dealership or Ford?

You probably should consider getting an attorney there in Tampa to send the dealer a note that you have a defective car and wish to return it to them. Their not taking care of a serious mechanical defect is unacceptable. Good luck.
