STEERING

2/18/2016 - NEW ULM, MN
I HAVE 63,000 MILES ON THIS VEHICLE. IN THE LAST WEEK THE STEERING HAS ACTED VERY WEIRD. I HAVE TO OVERCOMPENSATE (OVERSTEER OR UNDERSTEER) IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH THE CORRECT TURN. I WAS TRAVELING IN TOWN. I WOULDN'T DRIVE IT AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS. I FEEL VERY UNCOMFORTABLE DRIVING THIS VEHICLE BECAUSE I'M NOT SURE I CAN DEPEND ON THE STEERING. I WENT ONLINE TO HTTP://WWW.CARCOMPLAINTS.COM/FORD/F-150/2011/STEERING/STEERING-2.SHTML AND FOUND 65 SIMILAR COMPLAINTS. WHAT'S GOING ON? ITS CONTINUING NOT TO STEER CORRECTLY (LAST TUESDAY UNTIL NOW). THE WEATHER HAS BEEN VERY MILD FOR MINNESOTA (20-40S). I CHECKED FOR ICE AND DAMAGE BUT DIDN'T SEE ANYTHING.

STEERING

2/3/2016 - TERRYVILLE, CT
WHEN THE ELECTRICAL POWER STEERING FAILS, ONE IS UNABLE TO TURN THE WHEELS ANY FURTHER. THIS CAN HAPPEN WHEN THE VEHICLE IS MOVING OR STATIONARY, AND HAPPENS AT ALL SPEEDS, DOESN'T MATTER CITY OR HIGHWAY DRIVING. I FEEL THIS IS A CRITICAL SAFETY ISSUE, SINCE ONE WOULD BE UNABLE TO TURN THE WHEELS IN ORDER TO AVOID A HAZARD IN THE ROAD, I.E. A CHILD DARTING OUT ONTO THE STREETS, OR, IF ONE WHAT FOLLOWING A CURVE IN THE ROAD, ONE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO FOLLOW THE CURVE, AND COULD END UP OFF THE ROAD, OR, IMPACTING AN OBJECT ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, OR, END UP IN A BODY OF WATER, OR, DOWN AN EMBANKMENT.
