I have this same situation. It's somewhat irritating for sure. I haven't had mine looked at.....but yes, I roll mine down...a little for smoking...and then when I want the window to go back up, it goes down! Then I have to go up again. I don't understand it. But, just wanted you to know that it's happening to others too!

Sep 21, 2011 (9:26 pm)
Hello....not sure if you still are having this problem...BUT, if you are I have found out why this has been occuring!! Mine kept bucking...periodically. Then it was hard to gain speed...etc....AFTER about 7 times in the shop...they tried everything to find out what it was to no avail. FINALLY, a mechanic from New York told them he had the same issue and figured it out. Here is what it is.
Under the dash....way in there there are two electrical wires. These two wires are to have a wrapping on both wires on them. Well, after a while, they rub raw, just from driving...and the movement of the car. So, you have to take it in...and they will rewrap those wires so they don't touch each other anymore. This stopped mine.....See, each time the wires touched each other , it would buck. Hopefully this helps you!

Thanks for the info. Already had drivers heated seat fixed once for not working, and now it's dead again. Been about two years though. Last winter, seemed to become disconnected. The seat moved all the way back, then when I got in and the seat pulled up for me, I hit the switch and then nothing. Checked all connections and nothing noticeable was disconnected. But now winter is coming again, and I'm going to have to break down and take it in. I'll show them the service bulletin and we'll see what happens!

My ford 500 also was doing the same exact thing at 47000 miles, I had it repaired which cost 400.00. Please call ford and file a complaint. If all of us call then they hopefully will issue a recall. Of course this was not covered under warranty.

me too! I emailed the company and they said there is nothing they can do. I think if enough people complain they have to recall or be stuck with a ton of lawsuits if it causes an accident and they are aware of the problem. I think that if anyone else is having this problem they should notify Ford and hopefully they will recall the transmission. My transmission is the CVT one..

i have the same problem with my 2007 five hundred, it has been doing it for a while and i call my local Ford dealer and they claim that they have not seen anything like it , i guess nothing is going to happen until someone gets kill or if we are lucky just ran over , i am afraid to get it into the dealer and they will put tons of hours and turn around and charge me for every minute. i got this phone number to call NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) at 1-888-327-4236 or online at www.nhtsa.dot.gov and we may be able to do something .
#240 of 256 Mileage for the Ford Five Hundred
Jan 04, 2012 (6:33 am)
I was thinking of buying a 2007 Ford Five Hunderd with 141000 on it. It is a great deal. All of the things that normally go wrong have and have been repaired. It has had all of its maintenence done at Ford and is documented. It has leather and had one owner who was a traveling Sales perdon. It is immaculate. $6000 out the door
My only issue is the mileage. How long will this car last? I put 60 miles a day on my vehicle and I dont want to buy something that isnt going to be around in 60-70000 more miles
