WE HAVE A 2011 FORD F250 SUPER DUTY DIESEL PICK UP WITH LESS THAN 20,000 MILES. IT IS LIKE NEW, BUT HAS DEVELOPED A SERIOUS MECHANICAL DEFECT. FORD MOTOR COMPANY HAS TRIED UP TO (11) ELEVEN FIXES FOR THIS LIFE THREATENING PROBLEM WITH NO SUCCESS. NONE OF THESE "FIXES" APPLY ON THIS PICK UP. NOW SINCE THE PICK UP IS OLDER THAN 3 YRS. EVEN WITH SUCH LOW MILEAGE THEY WANT US TO PAY FOR "TRYING" OUT MORE POSSIBLE FIXES THAT HAVE CURRENTLY BEEN UNSUCCESSFUL FOR ALL THESE FORD F250 & F350 PICK UPS. THIS SHOULD BE AT THE FORD MOTOR COMPANY'S EXPENSE. THE BOTTOM LINE, IT SHOULD BE BOUGHT BACK BY FORD SINCE IT IS NOT YET PROVEN TO BE FIXABLE. PROBLEM: THE "DEATH WOBBLE" AS DESCRIBED ON THE INTERNET. THIS OCCURS ANYTIME THESE FORD SUPER DUTY F250 OR F350 DIESEL PICKUPS ARE DRIVEN OVER 40MPH AND A BUMP, ROUGH ROAD, OR POTHOLE IN THE ROAD IS HIT. THE OPERATOR LOOSES CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE. THE FIRST TIME THIS HAPPENED, THE PICKUP WAS PULLED INTO THE ON-COMING TRAFFIC. IT TOOK ALL MY SON'S STRENGTH TO GAIN SOME CONTROL AND KEEP FROM HITTING AN ONCOMING SEMI-TRUCK. THIS VEHICLE IS WORSE THAN THE INTERNET VIDEO AS CONFIRMED BY THE BEND OREGON FORD DEALERSHIP. APPLYING THE BRAKES MAKES IT WORSE. IT HAS TO BE ALLOWED TO SLOW DOWN ON ITS OWN. THE VIBRATION IS SO VIOLENT IT TAKES ALL ONES STRENGTH TO KEEP IT ON THE ROAD. IT+S ONE OF THE MORE FRIGHTENING EXPERIENCES YOU+LL ENCOUNTER BEHIND THE WHEEL. THE VEHICLE IS SHAKING SO BADLY YOU THINK IT+LL FALL APART AND THAT YOU+RE GOING TO DIE. THAT+S WHY IT+S CALLED DEATH WOBBLE.
