 Ford 500 lurches severely at random times while the engine is engaged. this happens most dangerously at high speeds, due to driver's inability to control vehicle adequately to defend against potential crashes or control speed during turns. this has caused problems on the snow and ice here in alaska because uncontrolled acceleration reduces traction. also occurs at low speeds, which is more easily controlled through braking, but requires extreme caution if engaging vehicle when pedestrians or other vehicles are near. it has surprised and scared me on many occasions since i first purchased this car a month ago, but the reason i am writing this is because i had a scary incident today when pulling out of a grocery store parking lot (pedestrians in front of me when it suddenly jumped as soon as engine engaged). took it to the mechanic and diagnostic check says issues with fuel delivery system. the mechanic stated that after researching the issue this is a very common problem for this model and that it is most likely the throttle body, and says the car should not be driven in its condition. it is one of the scariest issues i've ever had to deal with. after reading more about it on the internet this evening it seems that this issue is very common and hundreds of people have had similar scary incidents with this car that they have reported online. if this many people are writing about it online, presumably there are thousands more who are having the same problem and do not have the resources or know how to report the issue.

 Cruising approx 65 mph. i heard a thud (like running over a pot hole). the car lurched fwd then seemed to shut off, however it was still running. the rpm dropped below 1000 and the throttle would not work. placed car in neutral and moved to the side of the road. noticed the wrench lite was illuminated. turned the car off and restarted. the car seemed to drive fine after that with no lite. took the car to have the codes checked. two codes showed: trottle stuck closed and the throttle forced to idle (apparently a safety feature). two days ago had to have the pcm and tcm updated and replaced the upper motor mount. from previous complaints there are several with the car taking off and a few of with my issue. all seemed to be attributed to the throttle body malfunctioning which is apparently the case here. given the amount of complaints and issues concerning this item, surely there is a recall required. at the very least the manufacture should give us what we paid for the vehicle as credit toward another car (any make and model) if they are no going to fix the problem.

 5/20-7/18/11 car accelerated quickly and lurched backward with brake on while backing out of parking space; wrench light came on. error codes were for alternative fuel control module and throttle actuator control system. sometimes car lurched forward while braking, engine revved, car shuddered, and wrench and/or check engine light came on. started happening almost daily. very scary and unpredictable. mass air flow sensor and egr valve were replaced. had same issues 2 days later. throttle body and vacuum hoses were replaced. contacted ford and they refused to cover parts and labor because car was no longer under warranty. last repair was done 30 days ago and i've had no more problems, but it cost me $1600 to repair.

 I have a 06' ford five hundred that i purchased certified used in 07'. within a few months i started experiencing surging problems especially when the a/c was running. the dealer replaced the instrument cluster in 08' but did not fix the problem. on each return to the dealership they could not fix the problem. on my last visit to the dealer they cleaned the throttle body and said that would fix the problem. this did not fix the problem and they could not diagnose the problem. this problem has caused me to rearend a vehicle in 2009. ford is not responding to the problem at all. after 3+ years of trying to figure out what the problem is i all but have given up. that is until today when the repair shop that i use on a regular basis hired a new mechanic who was able to diagnose the problem. the problem turns out to be the throttle position sensors in the throttle body. it took the mechanic over 2 hours to get to the bottom of the problem. the unfortunate thing is the cost of a new throttle body is over $500 then add labor. if i have the tb replaced there is no gaurantee from ford that the new tb won't do the same thing. it is obvious that ford has a problem with the tb and is not willing to resolve the issue and back their products.

 My ford 500 lunges forward when applying brake or going into reverse. i read about the freestyle investigation on lunging and my 500 is doing the very same thing. investigation needs to be done on the 500 as well because it seems i'm not the only one with this problem.

 Car lunges when coming to a stop or backing. took car in for an oil change and brake job. when i picked my car up, it was running rough sometimes stalling when letting off the accelerator. in addition to spontaneously lurching forward, the engine will race when put into park. i have come close to hitting other cars, parking garage walls, etc due to this problem. my dealership now is telling me the throttle body is not within the proper parameters and needs replacement. after some research this seems to be a common problem.

 Addendum to odi id number : 10386714 the fuel pump, fuel filter had to be replaced, and the injectors flushed - cost $800 ++. dealer now states codes show pcm needs to be replaced. repair covered under federal emissions warranty (8 years or 80,000 miles) due to my current mileage being 79,008 miles. dealer covered car rental until part arrives and is installed. i have a bucking behavior, after traveling approximately 2 hrs at speeds over 60mph (interstate travel). the car would lurch severely and hesitate, the engine revved very loudly, and the speed reduced to 40 mph, even though i had my foot to the floor on the gas pedal. after driving off the highway, it would do the same thing at city speeds and had little to no acceleration. dealer said the codes showed it was the fuel pump and it would do the bucking and lack of acceleration after the pump heated up. dealer said the car was unsafe to drive. the fuel pump, fuel filter had to be replaced, and the injectors flushed.

 Car surges forward/backward when engaged in gear from dead stop and brake is released without having even touched the accelerator. seems to be worse when heating/cooling fan is on, especially on recirculate, and rpms will surge/race at dead stop with brake firmly applied when the steering wheel is turned to either side. problem is especially noticeable in parking lots or anywhere in low speed stop/go driving conditions. concerned for pedestrian safety as i have had the car jump unexpectedly and nearly hit them. check engine light came on a couple of weeks ago and car went into limp home mode indicating error codes p061b & p2016 which means the throttle body needs to be replaced after driving in deep snow, extremely cold temperature after car had been sitting for 3 days, the check engine light has cleared but the car continues to have the surging issues though it does seem worse in warmer weather than cold. so far i have not replaced the throttle body though i intend to as soon as i can get ahold of the part.

 When you shift out of park into either reverse or drive the car surges forward very quickly. if you don't hold the brake to the floor you can';t stop it. this is very dangerous! when unloading my children at school i almost ran over a child due to this defect. when i looked online i found thousands of complaints about this same issue. ford won't recall it and the parts (throttle body assembly $800) are on a 2 month back order!

 Purchased a 2006 ford five hundred and noticed that when i would put the car in drive or reverse it would lurch forward or backward quite excessively. called the deler and took the car in and was told that the throttle body might be gummed up and that the battery also failed and could cause that problem due to resetting everytime the car starts. they cleaned the throttle body plates and replaced the battery and that same night the vehicle did the same thing when i put the car in reverse.

 Ford needs to have a recall regarding the five hundred's lunging when put in reverse and sometimes when put into drive. mine started this about a year ago and i don't have to put my foot on the gas to go in reverse. even when parked downhill! my husband and i know you must keep your foot on the brake anytime you take th car out of gear. it's very scary and we will not let anyone drive the car for fear of an accident. please look into this!
