HELLO, WE WISH TO FILE A COMPLAINT ON THE 3.5 L ECO BOOST ENGINE IN OUR 2011 F150. WE HAVE HAD NUMEROUS ISSUES OF SHUTTERING, LURCHING, "LAG", LOSS OF POWER/LACK OF RESPONSE. WE FIRST HAD THIS ISSUE PASSING A SEMI ON A 2 LANE HIGHWAY JULY 2014, NO THERE WAS NO FOG/RAIN. IT IMMEDIATELY SHUTTERED, SHOOK,LURCHED (COUGHED/SPUTTERED) LOOSING POWER AS WE WERE PASSING. WE MADE MANEUVERS TO GET TO THE SHOULDER WHERE IT STRUGGLED TO STAY ENGAGED. WE COULD HAVE BEEN HIT HEAD ON, REAR ENDED, SIDE-BROADED BY THE SEMI OR WORSE, A COMBINATION OF ALL 3. NOT TO MENTION STRANDED. WE HAVE READ OF OTHER ISSUES, LAWSUITS AND COMPLAINTS BEING FILED. THE "SHIELD" DID NOT WORK (WE HAVE IT, INSTALLED 8/2014 & FLASHED COMP) IT HAPPENED AGAIN TWO DAYS IN A ROW LAST WEEK. THE TRUCK HAD NO LOAD EITHER TIME, WHAT IF WE WERE/ARE PULLING OUR TRAILER? (THE REASON WE BOUGHT THIS 60K TRUCK, FORD SAID IT WOULD) NOW THEY CLAIM SPARK PLUGS ARE FOWLED, THAT IS A NEW "FIX". (NOT COVERED) HOWEVER THAT IS A SEPARATE "CARBON TRACKING" PLUG ISSUE, (THE NEXT "ISSUE" COULD BE THE IGNITION PLUGS FOWLING DUE TO CARBON TRACKING FROM THE MOISTURE ISSUE) THE PROBLEM IS NOT PLUGS, THE MAJOR PROBLEM IS MOISTURE! FORD IS NOT ADDRESSING THE MOISTURE PROBLEM CAUSING THE "FAILURE". THEY ARE FIXING SYMPTOMS OF THE ISSUE. THE PROBLEM-MOISTURE IN THE PISTONS WATER & ENGINES DO NOT MIX! THEY HAVE NOT FIXED THE PROBLEM WHICH SHOULD FALL UNDER LEMON LAW. NEXT THERE WILL BE A TERRIBLE ACCIDENT (IF NOT FATAL) DUE TO THE LOSS OF POWER/RESPONSE, WHAT THEN? "..IT WAS OPERATOR ERROR, THEY SLOWED/STOPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LANE IN TRAFFIC"..TESTS ARE EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE; TESTS. WE ARE EVERY DAY LIFE; DRIVE THE TRUCK FOR TRANSPORTATION, NOT PETAL-METAL 24/7, "GROCERY GETTERS", VALUE OUR TRUCK. SINCE WHEN ARE OUR LIVES INDISPENSABLE OR NOT IMPORTANT? WHEN IS ANY ONE GOING TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS SAFETY ISSUE BEFORE SOMEONE DIES?
