I OWN A 2011 FORD F-150 ECOBOOST AND HAVE HAD ISSUES THAT FORD WISHES TO IGNORE AND WHICH I CONSIDER A SERIOUS SAFETY HAZARD. APPROX. OCT 16, 2013, WHILE DRIVING ON INTERSTATE DURING RAINY WEATHER, I ACCELERATED TO PASS, ON THE LEFT, A TT/ST THAT WAS IN THE RIGHT LANE. AS I STARTED TO PASS, AT APPROX. 3500 RPM, THE ENGINE STALLED AND THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT FLASHED. I WAS NEARLY REAR ENDED BY THE VEHICLE THAT WAS BEHIND ME, DUE TO THE STALL AND SUDDEN DECELERATION. I BROUGHT THE VEHICLE TO THE FORD DEALER ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS AND TO THIS DATE THE SAME THING OCCURS , ONLY THIS TIME THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT STAYS ON. FORD'S FIX IS TO REPLACE THE COIL AND ALL SIX SPARK PLUGS AT A COST OF $400, STATING THE ISSUE IS A MAINTENANCE ISSUE NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTY (VEHICLE STILL UNDER WARRANTY). FORD REFUSES TO RECOGNIZE THE DANGER THIS PROBLEM CREATES FOR THE OCCUPANTS AND WOULD RATHER USE A BAND-AID APPROACH, RATHER THAN FIX THE PROBLEMS , WHICH APPEARS TO BE MOISTURE DUMPED INTO THE ENGINE FROM THE COLD-AIR-CHARGE(INTERCOOLER) FOR THE TURBOS. I HAVE DONE MY HOMEWORK AND HAVE FOUND THIS TO BE A COMMON ISSUE AND IN MOST CASES, FORD REPLACES THE IGNITION COIL AND SPARK PLUGS , ONLY TO HAVE THE SAME THING HAPPEN AGAIN. AGAIN , FORD IS PUTTING THE OCCUPANTS OF THESE VEHICLES AT RISK CAUSED BY THE SUDDEN DECELERATION AND REFUSES TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND REPAIR THE PROBLEM.
