FOLLOWING TWO HEAVILY LADEN 18 WHEELERS DURING A LIGHT RAIN STORM FOR TWO OR MORE MILES ON A PAVED, TWO LANE COUNTY ROAD, IT CAME CLEAR FOR ME TO PASS, I ACCELERATED AND ALL WENT WELL FOR JUST LONG ENOUGH FOR ME TO GET EVEN WITH THE FIRST ONE IN FRONT OF ME. MY MOMENTUM CARRIED ME FAR ENOUGH TO PULL BACK IN FRONT OF THE FIRST TRUCK. BY THAT TIME I WAS IN SERIOUS TROUBLE. MY TRUCK WOULD BARELY RUN, IT WAS VIBRATING VIOLENTLY AND THERE WAS NO ACCELERATION TO GET ME OUT OF THE WAY OF THE TRUCK I HAD JUST PASSED. HAD HE NOT BRAKED HARD FOR ME THERE COULD HAVE BEEN A SERIOUS WRECK. I'VE HAVE HAD 5 OTHER INCIDENTS WITH THIS VEHICLE. I'VE TAKEN IT UP WITH FOMOCO, OVER A PERIOD THE FIRST YEAR. WORKING THROUGH THE OKLAHOMA BBB I WAS ASSURED FORD WOULD CORRECT THE PROBLEM. FOMOCO SENT A TEXAS REP TO MY WORK LOCATION TO PUT THE MOST RECENT FIX ON THE VEHICLE. FOLLOWING THIS FIX, WE CONTINUED INTO A DRY SPELL, BUT AS FATE WOULD WOULD HAVE IT, I WAS IN A HEAVY RAIN WITHIN THE NEXT 2 WEEKS AND THE PROBLEM REAPPEARED. THIS TIME MY WIFE WAS IN THE VEHICLE WITH ME. SHE THOUGHT I HAD RUN OVER SOMETHING BECAUSE THE ACTION OF THE PICKUP WAS SO VIOLENT. I'VE OCCASIONALLY SEEN LETTERS TO THE EDITOR OF MOTOR TREND'S "TRUCK TREND". OTHER PEOPLE DESCRIBING THE EXACT THING I'VE EXPERIENCED DRIVING THIS SAME TYPE VEHICLE (EARLY MODEL ECOBOOST V-6, THOSE BUILT PRIOR TO APRIL 2011, I BELIEVE). I HAVE A HUGE FILE FROM THE TIME WHEN I WAS TRYING VERY HARD TO GET THIS CORRECTED, DEALERSHIPS, DATES, TIMES, CORRESPONDENCE, FORD TECH BULLETINS, BUT I REFUSE TO WASTE MY TIME WITH YOU UNLESS YOU CONTACT ME ACTING AS IF SOMETHING MIGHT SERIOUSLY BE DONE. (214-850-9195, OR E-MAIL, [email protected]). I HAVE ENOUGH TO PROVE MY VEHICLE HAS SERIOUS PROBLEMS AND FOMOCO ADMITTED IT. A TRANSCRIPT OF MY MEETING WITH THEM THROUGH THE OKLAHOMA BBB. IT'S INTERESTING WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY. [XXX] INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
