 Description of the problemI have the taurus sho with the ecoboost engine. The vehicle occasionally shutters when accelerating from a stop or low speeds. It will "miss" and then "catch" and accelerate when pressing the gas pedal. This occurs randomly and in no pattern at all. I took the vehicle to the dealer in december 2012 and they claimed they could not replicate the issue. They indicated no awareness that this was a "known issue" with the car (i have the service receipt if needed). This has occurred since purchasing the car with ~9,000 miles on it in march of 2012. This also occurs rarely at higher speeds. Occasionally the cruise control will cancel and the car will shutter at highway speeds. This happens much less frequently than when the car is at low speeds or a stop. I read a usa today article today that other owners of the ecoboost 3. 5l v6 are complaining about this. It is definitely a problem with my car, and the description provided in the article describes my problem exactly.
