2013- FORD F150 ECOBOOST: I WAS DRIVING ALONG AT HIGHWAY 100KM/HOUR HIGHWAYS SPEED. I CAME UPON A CAR GOING 70KM/HR. IT WAS SAFE TO PASS, AND AS I STEPPED ON THE GAS TO ACCELERATE, MY TRUCK LOST COMPLETE POWER AND DECELERATED TO ABOUT 40 KM/HR, EVENTUALLY SLOWING RIGHT DOWN. I TRIED FRANTICALLY TO PUSH THE GAS, AS THERE WERE TWO SEMI TRUCKS BEHIND ME TRYING TO PASS AT THE SAME TIME AS ME. THE TRUCKS BOTH ENDED UP HAVING TO PASS ME UNSAFELY ON THE SHOULDER TO THE LEFT OF ME, INTO ONCOMING TRAFFIC. I WAS ABLE TO GLIDE OVER BACK TO THE LANE I WAS IN, AND EVENTUALLY RODE THE SHOULDER. I CONTINUALLY TRIED TO GET POWER TO THE VEHICLE. MY ENGINE LIGHT WAS FLASHING. EVENTUALLY AFTER SEVERAL ATTEMPTS, MY TRUCK DID "GRAB" AND SHOOT FORWARD. THE ENGINE LIGHT THEN WENT OFF, AND FOR THE REMAINDER OF MY DRIVE, THE TRUCK WAS FINE. AGAIN, TWO DAYS LATER, THE TRUCK DID THE SAME THING, BUT AT SLOWER SPEEDS IN TOWN. AS I READ INTO THE ISSUE, I FOUND THAT THIS IS A "COMMON" PROBLEM???? MY SITUATION TOO WAS DURING RAINY/WET WEATHER, LONG DISTANCE HIGHWAYS THE FIRST TIME, AND WET WEATHER, IN TOWN, THE SECOND TIME. THIS IS A SEVERELY DANGEROUS ISSUE. I TOO BROUGHT MY TRUCK TO THE SHOP AND WAS TOLD THAT THIS ISSUE WAS BEING INVESTIGATED AND THAT FORD HAD SOLUTION TO TRY. WHAT BOGGLES MY MIND IS THAT THERE ARE "SOLUTION" TO TRY, WHICH MEANS THIS PROBLEM WAS KNOWN, YET WHEN I BOUGHT THE TRUCK THE DEALERSHIP DID NOT MAKE ONE SINGLE MENTION, EVEN WHEN I ASKED IF THEY HAD HEARD OF ANY ISSUES WITH THE ECOBOOST SYSTEM! THE SHOP JUST UPDATED THE COMPUTER, AN A DAY LATER, IT HAPPEN AGAIN! :) I'M NO LONGER DRIVING MY TRUCK ON THE HIGHWAY. NOT SURE WHO TO CONTACT TO RETURN MY TRUCK. I DON'T EVEN WANT IT ANYMORE!
