VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

3/20/2015 - HUTCHINSON, MN
WHEN THERE WAS SNOW AND ICE ON THE HIGHWAYS I PUT MY TRUCK IN 4 WHEEL DRIVE AND WHEN TURNED BACK INTO 2 WHEEL DRIVE I BEGAN TO NOTICE A GRINDING AND VIBRATION NOISE THAT OCCURRED WHEN TURNING. THEN COUPLE WEEKS LATER THE NOISE STARTED WHEN BACKING OUT CAUSING TRUCK TO SHAKE AND LOSE POWER TO BARELY BACK OUT. THIS NOISE CONTINUED AND HAS GOTTEN WORSE. WAS TAKEN TO DEALERSHIP AND LOOKED OVER. UPDATES WERE MADE AS WELL AS OIL CHANGE BUT DAYS LATER NOISE CAME BACK. SINCE 2/12/15 MY TRUCK HAS BEEN IN THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT FOUR TIMES AND HAS PERFORMED RECOMMENDATIONS BY FORD BUT DAYS LATER NOISE COMES BACK. THE LAST TIME MY TRUCK WAS IN I WAS TOLD BY THE OWNER AND SERVICE MANAGER MY TRUCK IS NOT FIXABLE AS THEY WERE INFORMED OTHER 2012 F150'S ARE HAVING SAME ISSUES AND AN INVESTIGATION IS BEING DONE. SINCE THIS MY TRUCK IS SHAKING MORE BACKING UP, JERKING THE VEHICLE ON THE HIGHWAY AS IF LOSING POWER THAN WILL GAIN POWER AND JOLT FORWARD, I HEAR THIS GRINDING NOISE ALL THE TIME WHEN DRIVING AT DIFFERENT SPEEDS FROM 30-60 MPH, TURNS, AND BACKING UP. THE OTHER ISSUE IS WHEN TRUCK GETS TO 60 MPH OR HIGHER IT DOES NOT SHIFT DOWN UNLESS I LET UP ON PEDAL AND THEN PUSH IT AGAIN. I AM FEELING UNSAFE IN THIS VEHICLE AS TWICE NOW I HAVE HEARD A POPPING NOISE WHILE DRIVING WITH THIS NOISE. THE DEALERSHIP HAS TOLD ME THERE IS NOTHING MORE THEY CAN DO. THE ISSUE HAS BEEN REPORTED TO FORD AND THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING FOR ME. I WANT TO GET RID OF THIS TRUCK AS I DO NOT FEEL SAFE DRIVING IT LIKE THIS.

AIR BAGS

3/17/2015 - SAN JOSE, CA
ONE DAY I TURNED ON MY 2012 FORD F-150 XLT. I WENT TO GO OPEN MY GATE TO MY FRONT LAWN THEN NOTICED MY AIRBAG LIGHT ON. I TURNED OFF MY TRUCK AND TURNED IT BACK ON THEN THE LIGHT STAYED OFF. I CONTINUE TO RUN MY ERRAND THEN WHEN I GOT BACK HOME I NOTICED THAT ONCE I UNBUCKLED MY SEAT BELT AND LEFT THE TRUCK RUNNING TO OPEN MY GATE. THE LIGHT CAME BACK ON AGAIN. THERE IS NO ERROR MESSAGE ON THE LIGHT MEANING " THE LIGHT DOESN'T NOT BLINK ON START" I HAVE CONTACTED FORD ABOUT THE ISSUE BUT THEY CLAIM THERE IS NOT A RECALL NOTICE. I CHECKED THE DATE OF MANUFACTURE ON MY DOOR PANEL AND IT SAYS 11/11. I HAVE SEEN THAT THEY ARE RECALLING VEHICLES FROM 11/06 TO 11/15. HOW IS MY VEHICLE NOT ON THEIR LIST.

I HIT THE REMOTE START ON MY TRUCK THIS MORNING AND WHEN I WALKED OUT TO MY TRUCK AND GOT IN TO HEAD TO WORK I HEARD A LOUD POP AND DIDN'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS AT FIRST. I LOOKED BACK AND MY BACK RIGHT REAR WINDOW WAS SHATTERED. I DON'T KNOW HOW OR WHAT HAPPENED. I JUST HEARD THE NOISE AND LOOKED AROUND AND NOTICED MY WINDOW EXPLODED. I GOT OUT TO LOOK AT IT AND WHEN I SHUT MY DOOR THE WINDOW FELL APART.

VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

3/12/2015 - SOMERVILLE, MA
MULTIPLE OCCASIONS GO TO STEP ON THE GAS AND THE TRUCK JUST DOESN'T ACCELERATE, FEELS LIKE A MISFIRE OR ALMOST ABOUT TO STALL, THIS USUALLY HAPPENS WHEN AT A COMPLETE STOP AT A LIGHT AND LIGHT TURNS GREEN, HAS ALSO HAPPENED WHEN ROLLING IN TRAFFIC OR TRYING TO GET ONTO HIGHWAY AT THE ON RAMP. ANOTHER TIME DRIVING ON HIGHWAY, STEPPED ON GAS AND TRUCK LURCHED FORWARD AS IF SOMEONE HIT ME FROM BEHIND AND RPM KEPT ACCELERATING EVEN THOUGH I WAS NOT STEPPING ON THE GAS. HAVE BROUGHT THIS TO DEALER AND THEY CLAIM THEY CAN'T FIND ANYTHING WRONG. I BELIEVE THESE ARE PARTICULARLY DANGEROUS BECAUSE I'M EXPECTING THE TRUCK TO MOVE SO I CAN GO ALONG WITH FLOW OF TRAFFIC AND IT JUST HANGS ON ME PUTTING ME IN A BAD SITUATION OR IT LAUNCHES FORWARD MAKING ME MOMENTARILY JERK THE WHEEL AND LOSE CONTROL. POSSIBLE KNOWN ISSUE? (HTTP://WWW.USATODAY.COM/STORY/MONEY/CARS/2013/05/28/FORD-F150-ECOBOOST-GOVERNEMNT-PROBE/2367197/) THANKS
